Liquids and Soft Foods: EASY Spread

I love spreadable goat cheese on anything. Okay not everything but pretty much. I personally love it on homemade pizzas.
Okay so today I will be sharing with you my sweet goat cheese dip recipe. It is so good!
The ingredients that you will need for this sweet goat cheese dip are:
  • 1/8 cup agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup creme goat cheese
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice

To start add in the goat cheese into a small airtight bowl. Then stir and beat in the agave nectar for about 20 seconds or until fully mixed. The mixture should look like its smooth. Next add in the pumpkin spice and beat for another 10 seconds. I love pumpkin spice. Once you are done then try it with apples or a piece of bread. I personally like it with apples.

Liquids and Soft Foods: Awesome Dip!

So this is 4th day after surgery and I am able to get pancakes and eggs down my throat already!

So I have a recipe to share with you today! I love bean dip. But most of all I love black bean dip. This dip has TONS of protein. So to get started you need the list of ingredients that you will need for this recipe which will be:

  • one can of black beans (drained please)
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth (vegetable broth will do)
  • 1 tbsp of garlic
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tbsp of chopped onions (dehydrated is what I used)
Start adding the ingredients one at a time, one after the other. Blend for 2-3 minutes. You need to decide whether you want it CHUCKY or SMOOTH before you blend it. I personally like it smooth. But that’s just my opinion. Once it is done blending scrape it out in to a airtight container. It lasts for about 1-2 weeks. This dip is awesome with tortilla chips or veggies. ENJOY!

7th week of Cake Decorating

Week Seventh of my Cake Decorating I made a Barbie Cake which if you want to make this cake you need a Star Tip. When making the cake if you want to use a barbie doll make sure you make round pan cake and a glass measuring cup… if you don’t you will need to cut off the barbie legs which I do not think you want to.

Today I learned how to use Royal Icing. Let me just tell you making roses with Royal icing sucks when you do them on a wooden pencil.

I’ve also learned how to make icing stand up.

Isn’t that like sweet!!

Week 2 of Cake Decorating Class

I just finished my 2nd week of Cake Decorating Class.  In the class I learned how to make roses and leaves which was hard at first.  After awhile making the roses and leaves became rather easy.

Here is a picture of what I have done today in this class:

Aren’t they great!

It took just a few minutes to master the rose and I had a great time!

Thanks for reading!  I would love to hear your comments below!
