Make Easter Easy!

3 Apr

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone has been enjoying the first two weeks of spring and been getting some warmer weather to enjoy. I have found some great Easter inspiration for baking and decorating ideas that are very quick to do with little cost. I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend! Happy Easter xx Glamour Planner

I love this bunny butt sugar cookie idea, it’s as easy as making different shaped ovals and adding icing!Easter

If you are hosting an Easter dinner or brunch you can get creative with your place cards and add them to cute mini easter baskets like these with some chocolate eggs.

For a centrepiece take two sizes of vases and between the two add easter eggs, jellybeans, chocolate eggs or anything colourful  to add to the easter theme!

Another easy dessert or snack to try is making rice krispie treats but in the form of a carrot then covering them with icing or a candy orange glaze. Thanks to Frugal Coupon Living for the idea!

Adding a simple tulip to your guests plate makes a world of a difference and makes them feel special!

Grad some old birthday confetti and shape it into a nest and put an egg in the middle, voila, instant table decor done!

Hit the trail

8 Jul

Hi Glamourites,

My gourmet cookie stand has continued to grow and I think people have started to hear about it through word of mouth. I’ve started to realize a bit what it might be to baker and have a store. I have also experimented on recipes beyond cookies to see what else people may be interested on the trail. I have named them the Lochside Trail bar as that is the section of the trail we are located on. They are made with oats, organic raisins, almonds, chia seeds, hemp hearts and honey and taste pretty delicious to me! If anyone has sampled them you can let me know your feedback or any other suggestions! Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful summer weather. xx Glamour Planner

Summer Inspo

30 Jun

Hello Glamourites!

Yes I know it has been awhile; it seems June got away on me! Things were crazy with it being my sister’s high school graduation which meant lots of parties and family from out of town. Now that things have died down and summer is well upon us, I hope to get back to making regular posts 🙂 For today, here are some pictures and ideas for summer/fashion/food and others that caught my eye. Hope you are all having an amazing start to your week! xx Glamour Planner

The Vintage S’more

23 May

Hello Glamourites!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful and beautiful May, I love that spring is finally here! If you are starting to crave some of those roasted s’mores by the fire here is an easy recipe for you to make at home! Follow the recipe below and treat yourself this weekend 🙂 xx Glamour Planner

SmoreIngredients:

  • 6 gluten free graham cookies (roughly 1 Cup crushed/pulsed in food processor into crumbs). If you don’t have any, use 1 cup of gluten free quick oats, or 1 cup regular graham crumbs. 
  • 2/3 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 Cup butter, melted
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1 Jar marshmallow fluff
  • 3 1/2 Cups chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp butter

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F

2. Grease the short ends of a a 9×13 baking pan with butter, then line the pan with parchment, leaving “handles” hanging over the long ends. Set aside

3.In a medium sized bowl combine the cookie crumbs (or oats), coconut, melted butter and egg white. Press into the prepared baking pan.

4. Bake for 19-21 minutes, until you have a nice golden colour.

5. As the bottom bakes, place the chocolate chips and 1 tbsp of butter into a sauce pan, or in a microwavable bowl, and warm (stirring every so often) until melted and smooth. Let cool slightly.

6. Just before the bottom is done baking, warm the mallow fluff, either by warming it in it’s jar in the microwave (with the lid and protective seal removed), or by emptying the fluff into a small sauce pan on the stove and warming.

7. When the bottom is finished baking, take it out of the oven, and place it onto a cooling rack. Plop down blobs of the marshmallow fluff over the base, then gently spread around to cover it.

8. Drizzle the melted (and slightly cooled) chocolate over the marshmallow fluff, and very gently spread around.

9. Leave this to set in the fridge for about 2 hours. Then, take it out of the fridge and allow to soften oh so slightly (the chocolate top can be tricky to cut without smoooshing the mallow fluff out. I keep thinking that if you score the top after it’s starting to set in the fridge {maybe after an hour?|, that it would really make cutting them easier). Using a hot knife, cut into squares and devour! Or share with others if you must….

Summer Picnic

11 Jun

Good Evening Glamourites,

With the sun shinning today and the warmth of the sun it made me extremely excited about all the summer adventures to come! One of those being PICNICS! I am looking forward to packing yummy food and drinks, grabbing a blanket and going to the beach, garden or mountain for a delicious picnic with friends. Here are some beautiful picnic setup’s I thought would be adorable to plan for a dinner party inspiration or afternoon lemonade with friends.

This cute idea with the tent on the beach piles of pillows just looks like a relaxing and fun filled afternoon picnic!

This picnic atmosphere is picturesque for a rustic farm field at the picnic table with wild flowers, lace table cloth and plastic cups (a must for outdoors).
