Enjoy Life | Amazon Dash

8:53 AM

Friends, we are living in the future. A future where we can press a button and two days later 
(if you have amazon prime) wonderful allergy friendly cookies show up to your door step!

I love the concept behind the amazon button. I know I'm prone to forgetting things.
Its an easy way to order your favorite items without rushing to your computer.

With one little press you can have 6 boxes of Soft Baked Snickerdoodles sent to your door!
Ok maybe you don't need 6....

Enjoy Life has so many products on amazon prime that you don't have to buy in bulk for every item.
Just need ONE Enjoy Life Brownie mix for your next party?? They got it! Need it once a month? You can subscribe and save and save even more! (thanks amazon prime!: )) 
And if you forget to order it! Thats what the amazon dash button is for!

The Enjoy Life Amazon Dash Button is available to order now and will be stocked and read to go on August 9th.  After your first press, amazon will reimburse you the price of the button so its basically free if you use it! Woot Woot!

Dairy Free Alfredo Sauce

7:30 AM

I've made this recipe a couple of times (see dairy free pasta alfredo)
But I feel like I finally got it to the right consistency that I like and the taste is perfection!!

Olive Oil
1 1/2 cup of frozen cauliflower
1 small onion diced
Minced Garlic
3/4 cup of Vegetable Broth + Set 1/2 cup of VB aside
1/8 tsp Soy Sauce
1/4 tsp of lemon juice
1 tsp of sea salt
  • Heat oil in a medium sized pot. Add diced onion and cook till translucent. Add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds then add you frozen cauliflower and vegetable broth.
  • Place a lid on it and steam till cauliflower is soft.
  • Add everything from the pot to a blender and blend till you can get it as smooth as possible. 
  • Add the rest of the ingredients starting with the nutritional yeast.
  • The 1/2 cup of vegetable broth that you set aside is to use if you feel the sauce is too grainy. If you blend it and it seems super grainy and not smooth, add more VB. I ended using close to 1/2 cup.
And tada! You have an amazing Dairy Free Alfredo Sauce

Tea Bag Holders
I wrote on my instagram that I'm pretty sure these tea holders will inspire me to drink more tea, especially come fall and winter time. My favorite is the "Drop it like its Hot" ;)
I picked up these little cuties for $1.99 at World Market!

Almay Intense I-color
I LOVE this mascara! It's smooth, hardly ever clumpy, and perfect for my eye color. While not all of Almay's products are perfect, this mascara is hypoallergenic and rated at a 2 on EWG Skin Deep! Score!
A new addition to my Pop! collection. This little fella fits into my little shelf collection very nicely. Next to his buddy Po and Rey.

Picnic Table
All I wanted for my birthday was blinds for our windows in our backroom and some type of patio furniture for outside. My wonderful parents got me this super simple and lovely picnic table! I do plan to paint it at some point. But as anyone in the south knows, right now it is horribly hot to do any type of work outside and its rains daily. So, it might be awhile before it gets a needed paint job.
