    Easy Homemade Holiday Gifts, er, um, if ya have the ingredients

    Easy Homemade Holiday Gifts by Monica Escobar Allen |

    When I was young and naive, I thought that when I had my own family, we'd solely do homemade gifts. None of this consumerism. None of this running around or clicking around. Then...when I found myself with a family, that thought went out the window. And here I am, nine years later, making homemade gifts for the first time. And they aren't even for my own family! They are for my daughter's friends! (insert crying laughing emoji). How did I get roped into this? #suckerforamom

    Anywho, my dear friend gave me some Terrasoul Raw Cacao Butter and I didn't know what to do with it so I went to the ol' Google and found this recipe from Navitas Organics. 



    • 56g Cacao Butter
    • ¼ cup unrefined coconut oil
    • ¼ cup sweet almond oil
    • ¼ tsp. favorite essential oil (optional)


    1. Melt cacao butter, coconut oil and almond oil in a saucepan over low heat.
    2. Pour into a mixing bowl and place in the refrigerator until mixture begins to harden, about one hour.
    3. Add essential oil, if using, then whip with an electric mixer on high until light, fluffy peaks form, scraping the sides periodically with a spatula.
    4. Let the mixture cool completely. Spoon into a glass jar, cap and store at room temperature.

    Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Oh yeah, that's something I've picked up since being a mom. I'm so embarrassing.

    What is the best Scotch to stock for the holidays?

    What is the best Scotch to stock this holiday season? by Monica Escobar Allen |

    If you're entertaining this holiday season and want to stock your bar for your Scotch-loving friends, (i.e. me) always grab a Scottish single malt. Forget that blended stuff. And always, from Islay. Lagavulin 16 year. Laphroaig 10. Ardbeg 10. Caol Ila 12. Even Bowmore 12.

    Why? Because if it has peat, I'm instantly snuggle-transported under a Teddy Bear Sherpa SHH™ Blanket by a warm crackling fire while I peer out a picture window of snowcapped mountains listening to a tweed-wearing piano player tapping a Steinway baby grand singing to me with his velvety voice not unlike the late Mark Sandman. Now that's holiday. 

    If you have someone who can bring this dream alive, take me with you. And, perhaps use this card to invite yourself.
