A feeling of Zen

In my opinion there is nothing more beautiful than a well landscaped yard. I love being in nature and feeling the energy of the trees and plants that surround me. I had really invested a lot of money in the landscaping of our previous home as the interior needed only cosmetic fixes and a new bathroom. My present house however, has eaten up all our money like the cookie monster eats cookies.

So now I have landscape envy...

Desiretoinspire.net posted about this company called weareconsidered.com and I immediately fell in love with this Cypress Falls residence.

Check out the lighting...

and the deck...

can you say love...

Strawberries & Vanilla Cream

I love having strawberries and vanilla whipped cream for desert but a low cal version of that desert is also good for breakfast. All you have to do is add the desired amount of strawberries to a bowl of plain greek yogurt and then add one tsp or tbsp (depending on how sweet you want it to be) of pure maple syrup and voila! Breakfast is served. 

Breakfast - In the above photo I have combined the following:

4 Medium strawberries, sliced. 
1/3 cup of Riviera plain set-style yogurt (Greek yogurt is fine)
1 tsp of pure maple syrup. 

If you're making desert for a bunch of people and you would like to have whipped cream here is the recipe:

Get 1 pint or 2 cups of strawberries.
Hull and then cut strawberries into chunks or slices and place in a bowl.
Add 2 tbsps or more of unrefined cane sugar - enough to cover all the berries. 
Let sit in the fridge for an hour or two. 

Get your whipped cream
Whip it up until very sturdy. 
Add 1 tsp of pure vanilla flavoring.
