Spring is right around the corner and of course we know that means April showers! I have teamed up with a few fellow bloggers so bring you a giveaway for a pair of Hunter Boots. Have you seen how cute these things are??
So many people grew up reading the famous Dr. Seuss books and they are one book series that really has appealed to so many generations! Next week we celebrate Dr. Seuss Day on March 2nd, but who's to say this celebration is just for kids? Adults can celebrate, too, with my fun Green Eggs and Ham inspired gelatin shots!
Do you like green eggs and ham?
Green Eggs Gelatin Shots
You will need:
1 can coconut milk
4 packets Knox gelatin
1 small box green Jello or other brand gelatin
1 cup flavored vodka (make sure it's flavored because this is the main flavor of the shot!)
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons boiling water
Easter egg gelatin mold
cooking spray (your choice!)
Note: this recipe takes a little while because each step requires the gelatin to set. Hands on time is only about 20-30 minutes. Total time is 12+ hours because it needs to set in the fridge between steps! In other words, plan ahead!
What to do:
Part 1: (ready, go!)
Measure 3/4 cup of the coconut milk and pour into a small saucepan. Sprinkle 2 packets of Knox over the milk and let it set for about 45 seconds. Turn on the burner to medium-low heat and bring the milk to a boil, stirring often so it doesn't burn.
Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup of flavored vodka.
Prepare molds by lightly spraying with cooking spray.
Pour mixture into the bottom half of the egg mold and then place in the fridge to set, about 4 hours.
Part 2: (4 hours later)
Remove egg halves from fridge. Carefully scoop out each egg half to make a small bowl, be sure not cut all the way through! (save what you scoop out if you want! After all, it does have some vodka in it!)
Bring water to a boil. Mix water with green Jello until it's fully dissolved. Do not add cold water or vodka. Allow it to cool on the counter a few minutes before the next step!
Carefully add green mixture into the "bowls" you created earlier.
Return to fridge to set, 3-4 hours
Part 3: (almost done!)
Repeat the steps in part one with the remaining 3/4 cup coconut milk, 2 packets of Knox and 1/2 cup vodka.
Prepare top half of egg molds with cooking spray. Tightly click them in place onto the bottom.
Carefully pour the white mixture into the molds. I use a tiny funnel for this step!
Place in fridge to finish setting. When it's done, remove from molds (they should slide right out) and cut in half to serve.
I love green eggs! I would eat them in my house, I would eat them with my spouse. I would eat them with a friend, I would eat them around the bend!

I recently read an article where a woman drank hot water with lemon and honey every morning for a year and absolutely loved it. Apparently there are numerous health benefits to drinking this concoction, and since I've been fighting a pretty bad cold for about three weeks now (yes, seriously) I thought it might be a good idea to give it a try! I'm going to try it for two weeks and then report back how it goes!
Here are some of the health benefits of drinking hot lemon honey water I have compiled from various sources:
Aids in digestion and helps your digestive system in general.
Helps clear up your skin.
Helps cleanse the lymphatic system.
Can help you fight a cold.
Can help with your energy level and morning mood.
Health benefits and more energy in the morning? I'll try it! I haven't tried many "natural remedies" such as this in the past but I've read enough to convince me this might be worth a shot!
