Torani...more then just coffee

When the opportunity for this review came up I was a little leery about taking it. As a non coffee drinker I just kept thinking what am I going to do with these?? What purpose could they possibly hold for someone that doesn't drink coffee. I learned when they arrived that Torani is more then just a coffee flavoring. I received two flavors in the mail a Pumpkin Spice and a Vanilla Bean. While I have to admit the Pumpkin Spice Torani was used for just the plain old coffee ;o) I took it to work for our Holiday party and it was a huge success! Monday it was very very cold here and never made it past freezing. All the teachers were hovering the coffee pot waiting for their turn to warm up. When it came time for the Vanilla my first thought was how good it would be in my soda haha. Then an emergency situation came up! I was in the middle of making my first batch of fudge for the holiday season(see I told you it was important) and I realized I HAD NO VANILLA! As I am stirring my fudge and thinking how horrible it is going to be without it I turned to my husband to whine and knocked over the bottle of Vanilla Bean Torani and it hit me, I'll just use that. So after altering my recipe just a touch I was left with a delicious batch of fudge I wanted to share with my fans.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
