Pink Champagne Sugar Cookies & Other Goodies

  I love baking, especially at Christmas!  This was my first time baking with Pink Champagne.  First, I attempted to infuse Pink Champagne into the sugar cookie batter and bake.  However, that did not turn out  as planned.  To be honest, they tasted a bit tart.  Not to worry!  Later, I tried whipping up a Pink Champagne Buttercream Frosting.  Yum!  It just so happened, while I was baking my sister requested Candy-cane Sugar Cookies.   Pink Champagne Buttercream Frosting I used a recipe from Pillsbury.  However, due to my food allergies I had to modify it slightly. My modified version: 1 cup Earth Balance Butter 3 cups powdered sugar 1/2 cup pink champagne (I added a little extra) 1-2 drops red food coloring Candy-cane Sugar Cookies I used a box of dairy-free and gluten-free sugar cookie mix.  After using cookie cutters to make Christmas inspired shapes, I added in pieces of candy-cane before baking.  An alternative option, is to decorate the baked cookies with regular frosting and then add candy-cane pieces as a garnish.   …

Eco Eats: The Greenhouse

The Greenhouse is a wonderful treasure here in Cayman for all the environmental and diver enthusiasts.  Located at Lighthouse Point, (571, NW Point Road, West Bay) just before the Cayman Islands Turtle Farm.  The Greenhouse resides amongst a spectacular panoramic view of the always inviting Caribbean Sea.  One of my best friends introduced me to The Greenhouse and it was an instant favorite place to eat. I love being immersed in an eco friendly atmosphere.  The food is delicious, with so many healthy options!  The menu caters to those who are looking for Gluten Free, Paleo friendly and allergy friendly options.  One of my favorite dishes is the Brie Personal Pizza! Yum! For drinks it is always a toss up between the ever refreshing Lemongrass Moringa Tea (Locally Brewed by James Pedley) and the Banana Caramel Smoothie.  My advice, have both, you won’t regret it! The food is just one of the many reasons you will fall in love with this place.  The eco friendly mantra of The Greenhouse is admirable.  The are very supportive …
