Indulge Yourself

a special feature from Leslie Zinberg & Kay Ziplow, founders grandparentslink.com

Did you know that treating yourself is a good thing? Well, we know this to be true. We are all about a little indulgence here and there, so, we test lots of recipes for our readers, and when we hit a jackpot, we gotta share what we got. Plus, what a bonus- it’s apple season, and the ingredients for two of the recipes will be even fresher. Enjoy!

Yes, Chocolate is Good for You!

(okay, okay in moderation that is!)

So here’s the deal about chocolate – first of all, it’s actually been reported to boost your immune system. Yep, that little cacao bean (the source from which chocolate is derived) is full of antioxidants which play a key role in supporting a healthy system. The truth is, the deeper the color chocolate, the more antioxidants. So go for that dark chocolate, as the lighter milk chocolate doesn’t offer the same benefits.

Oh, Yes, Eat Fudge and Be Healthy!

A 5-star recipe you will not want to miss

There’s a secret ingredient in this recipe that helps replace the dairy in this vegan, fudge-like treat. It’s avocado!

An important cooking note here to be mindful of: the key to a firmly set but fudgy texture is using bittersweet chocolate with minimum 60% cacao. Lower percentages will result in fudge with a scoop-able ganache-like texture instead of bars.

Homemade Ice Cream (the no fuss way)

What screams summertime? ICE CREAM! Plain and simple.
So that’s what we have here for you – our very best (easy) ice-cream recipe that will take no time to imagine and create, and even less time to devour. We promise you that everyone from all ages will flip for this fun treat.
A little note here from our test kitchens– we used a lot of imagination once we got started as to what we added for variations in the ice cream. Please do the same. Oh, and be sure to make some double batches: this freezes well and it’s great to have at a later date. We hope you enjoy the ice cream as much as we do. Please share your favorite variation with us!

You may have a backyard fire pit, you may have access to a beach to make a bonfire, or you may just use oven/stove top; these tasty s’mores can be made any way you want! Get creative with some add ons… (our grandchildren love to add pretzels!)
