twelve days of christmas gifts (5)

This post is going to be short and sweet.

But one thing I wanted to mention during the twelve days of Christmas giveaway is that this year has held a lot of new for me.

Like, I never thought I would make a simple syrup from flowers [or what my parents consider weeds] growing in the lawn.

I also never thought that I would use that simple syrup to create these cupcakes or this lemonade.

I never thought I’d freeze wine, blend it up, and make this delicious strawberry frosé.

Or that I’d re-create the crunchwrap surpreme – which was the number one viewed recipe on the site in 2017.

I had never tried Halo Top ice cream.  But when I did, I created this guilt-free cherry vanilla float.

Or that I’d make a soup.  Out of FRUIT.  Like this Swedish blueberry soup and this Norwegian apple soup.

And I sure as heck didn’t think I’d be making my own traditional medicine like this immunity boosting ginger cinnamon elderberry syrup!
