Feel the coolness at the beach

When I’am at the beach and the sand is hot, some of the best thing i can wait for is the breeze. But after a few minutes of waiting, I see one bar and do you know what I’am thinking about … Yes “I need a drink”, but not just a drink. I want some special drinks to feel the coolness in this hot day on the beach.
Let me show you some cocktails that I like …

fill with orange juice
1 oz grenadine syrup
Pour malibu rum in a highball glass, and top with orange juice. Stir. Add grenadine by tilting glass and pouring grenadine down side. (by flipping the bottle vertically very quickly). The grenadine should go straight to the bottom and then rise up slowly through the drink. Enjoy!

Honey = Health

Known as “nectar of the gods” honey was used by Egyptians 5000 years ago. Honey can relieve a variety of ailments,stress including allergies,fatigue, coughs  and pain, as well as boost libido. Here i am going to share with you some recipes with honey – tasty and healthy .

1. Apple Spice Muffins
Vegetable oil in a spray bottle, or 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 ¼ cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup applesauce
1 Fuji or Gala apple, peeled, cored and diced
4 egg whites, lightly beaten
¾ cup honey
¾ cup raisins
½ cup nonfat plain yogurt
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray or grease a 12-cup muffin tin with vegetable oil. In a wide-based blender or a food processor fitted with a metal
blade, process the rolled oats until they become a fine flour. Sift the baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large mixing bowl.
Stir in the whole-wheat flour and oats. Using a spatula, make a depression or “well” in the center of the dry ingredients and add the applesauce,
diced apple, beaten egg whites, honey, raisins and yogurt. Stir gently but thoroughly, just until all the flour is incorporated into the batter. Pour the
batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them about full.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Turn
onto a wire rack; serve warm or let cool. Makes 12 muffins.

2. California Breakfast Bread
½ cup Sue Bee Honey®
2 cups low-fat buttermilk
¼ cup raisins
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup wheat germ
1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
¼ cup molasses
¼ cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Prepare nonstick loaf pan by spraying with cooking spray. Mix together all ingredients and pour into prepared pan. Place
pan in oven and lower oven temperature to 350ºF. Bake for 1 hour. Turn loaf out on rack and cool. Allow bread to cool at least 8 hours before slicing
and toasting this bread.

Grated peel of 1 or 2 oranges
Sift dry ingredients, including orange peel [except cherries and hazelnuts], into a mixing bowl. Make well in center. In another bowl add eggs, oil,
honey and almond extract; stir. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients. Stir until dough holds together. Add nuts and cherries/ syrup. Place dough on
floured board, knead, and cut into 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a 2-by-12-inch log. Place logs on foil lined greased baking sheet, 4 inches apart.
Bake in a 350ºF oven for about 20 minutes or until firm to the touch. Remove from oven and cool about 15 minutes. With serrated knife cut logs
diagonally into ½ inch thick slices with a gentle sawing motion. Place biscotti back on baking sheet, cut side down. Bake 8 to 10 minutes to crisp.
