Five Minute Three Ingredient Whipped Cream Recipe (3)Combine all your ingredients into one bowl. Next, whisk all your ingredients together until the cream thickens.

There are multiple methods to “whip” your cream. You can whip them by hand with a whisk. If you have a whisk tool for your hand mixer, you can whip on a low setting. Finally, I used a Magic Bullet, make sure you blend in 30 second intervals.

These apple chips are SO good and a little healthier than most snacks that are on the market. They are also not the expensive to make either!

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and spray two baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray. I’ve also made potato chips and the process is very similar. The key is to cook them at a low temperature!

Slice your apples into thin slices. I cut mine in half first. One of my favorite cooking tools I’ve purchased is a mandolin. You can purchase the exact one I have at Target for about $15.00. Honestly, I use it so much more than I thought I would and it makes your life so much easier!

Arrange your apple slices on your baking sheets relatively close together. If they overlap a little, that’s a-okay (they shrink)!

Mix your sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over your slices.

Bake for 45 minutes to an hour. You can tell when they are done because the edges will begin to curl. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack or plate for cooling and crisping.

Enjoy! I gobbled mine up so fast they didn’t even get to cool down!! Here’s a recipe card for you to keep! (Click to enlarge, right click to save your computer and print off!)

Guinness Whiskey Milkshake!

 
“Guinness Whiskey Milkshake”



Hello! I’m excited for my first “official” blog post! Today I decided to share with you a drink recipe of mine. 

March is my boyfriend’s favorite month of the year (probably exaggerating, but still one of his favorite). 
Why, you ask? Great question! Red Robin is why!
Last year, around this time, we had dinner at Red Robin.  They were featuring a “Guinness Milkshake.”
He fell in love. This drink involves Guinness, whiskey, and chocolate ice cream. 
He forgot about it for a while until one day during the fall he got a craving for one! 

Probably one of the simplest milkshakes I’ve every made. I looked up a few recipes, just to see how others may have done them. Guy Fieri has a recipe on the Food Networks website here, but he doesn’t use whiskey. I found another recipe that uses whiskey here, but I altered their recipe a bit.

My boyfriend’s favorite whiskey is Jamison, so I decided to start with that! I also use my Magic Bullet to make him a single serve ‘shake. For this ‘shake you will need:
2 oz. of whiskey (again, I used Jamison!)
1 bottle of Guinness (I use bottle versus the can, tastes better!)
Chocolate ice cream

I fill the cup to the top with scoops of ice cream, leaving about a half inch of room. Next, add the whiskey. Finally, pour Guinness to just below the ice cream (unless I am making muliple ‘shakes, I end up dumping the rest). Blend until mixed, you may need to use the “cocktail shake” technique to incorporate the ingredients. If the shake comes out too think, just add more ice cream until thicker! 

I don’t know how copy rights work, so I “edited” the labels. I think you can figure out what I used!

I use more whiskey for the boyfriend (he likes it on the stronger side). You may all decorate your glass with chocolate drizzle or even top with whip cream! Enjoy!!
Happy Elder Scrolls Day! (That’s what he’s been playing)

I hope you all have fun with this! I’m super excited about future posts! I’ve been brain storming all day with TONS of ideas. Maybe you can get a feel of my style from my Pinterest or Bloglovin’, and let me know what you may want to see!


Also! I want to see how you did with this recipe! Leave me a comment, I would love to know what you did!
