Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe for Mouthwatering Monday from H&P Artistry

This weeks Mouthwatering Monday Recipe is Peanut Butter Frosting. This is a family favorite that I make for special occasions and when I get a craving for something decadent and delicious. The frosting is super rich and it doesn’t take much to satisfy a craving. I haven’t tried it with other nut butters but I bet cashew and almond would be wonderful. I use a stand mixer but you can use a hand mixer just as easily.

*This is a peanut product do not try if you have an allergy to peanuts.

Peppermint Rose Sugar Scrub recipe from H&P Artistry

The winter is the worst time for dry skin. I feel like I go through tubs of moisturizer in February alone. In Nashville February is the worst month for cold weather. The ice moves in and the town shuts down for a few days. Yes Ice, People tend to make fun of the south because a snow flake falls and immediately the stores are out of milk, eggs, bread, and beer.  We don’t have wine in grocery stores here. (yet… that’s another post) The thing is it’s not the snow that makes us freak out. It is the ICE! The ice that causes roads to be slick and people to slide into one another like bumper cars at the fair. The Ice that, last year, caused us to have no power for a week at a time, and the pipes to freeze three times.

I would love to have snow, the light fluffy stuff you can make a snowman with. I haven’t made a real snowman since I was 12. Snow Balls are ice-covered missiles that can give you a concussion. I don’t want the awful snow that the North (hehe – yes The North, I did not say Yankees.) had last year. I don’t know what I would do if I saw that much snow.

Why talk about snow and ice now? Because last week it was 70 degrees outside and this week it is freezing. In a matter of 3 days we went from wearing shorts and t-shirts to full winter garb and it is beginning to sleet. Everyone is sick. It will warm up again after Christmas a little and then freeze.

Now is the time to start intensive moisturizing. This recipe is super simple and you can personalize it however you like.

Ingredients:

Peppermint Rose Sugar scrub

1 cup Sugar

1/3 cup coconut oil

Food coloring (not necessary)

1/4 cup olive oil (for extra moisture)

Scented oil or extract. I used rose oil and peppermint extract.

Jar or container (air tight)

For a dryer scrub

The Printable labels

Pour the sugar, coconut oil, coloring, and scent into a bowl.

I recommend a color safe bowl. The food coloring can stain. Add a few drops of color and scent to start and add more as needed. The color will intensify and brighten as it absorbs into the oils and sugar.

Mix well with a fork. Your body heat melts the coconut oil when you apply it to your skin. The mix looks dry when mixing.

For a more liquid mix add the olive oil

The scent will change if you add olive oil because the olive oil has its own earthy smell. You will have to adjust the intensity of the scent with trial and error. Always start with less and add more as needed.

Mix well and pour it into the jar.

Add a Label

I am a huge Harry Potter Fan (geek) so I thought I would add a little fun with my labels and I made a Floo Powder label for the dry scrub and a PolyJuice Potion label for the liquid scrub.I then proceeded to add the wrong labels to the jars. My friends will understand. And love me anyway.

I used a ball jar and cut a circle of glitter tape to cover the top of the lid for added detail. (It looks magical.) And used packing tape to secure the label.  The Harry Potter theme is also the inspiration for the green coloring.

The Mouthwatering Monday Recipe is a Simple Chess Pie Recipe from H&P Artistry

This Mouthwatering Monday Simple Chess Pie Recipe is the first pie I ever learned to make. I love this pie just as much today as I did as a child. The recipe is one of those that many generations of Moms, Nanas, Nannies, and grandmas passed down and now I’m sharing it with you. The only difference from their recipe and mine is that they did not whisk the eggs to a fluffy consistency before adding the sugar and butter. Believe me the fluffy eggs make the pie texture better.

Recipe:

1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Butter
3 Eggs
1 tbsp Vanilla
1 Pie crust premade, frozen or homemade

Mix the eggs and vanilla with a hand mixer, stand mixer or whisk.

Whisk until thick and frothy.

In another bowl melt the butter and add it to the sugar.

Mix the butter into the sugar until it is cool and incorporated fully.

Slowly incorporate the sugar and butter mixture in to the egg and vanilla mixture a little at a time. Whisk well to incorporate and to keep the mixture fluffy.

Prep the pie crust by using a fork to dot the crust . This keeps the crust from filling with steam and expanding while the pie bakes.

Pour the pie batter into the shell and bake at 350* for 45 – 60 minutes. Oven temperatures and times may vary.

The pie is ready when it is golden brown and the center is not liquid. I broke the crust when I lifted the pie out of the oven. 🙁

Serve the pie as is or with your favorite topping.

What was the first dessert you learned to make?

Coconut Oil Lip Gloss DIY from H&P Artistry

Coconut Oil Lip Gloss DIY

Coconut Oil Lip Gloss DIY

Coconut Oil Lip Gloss DIY from H&P Artistry

 

I love this lip gloss recipe because my lips get terribly chapped in the winter. I especially love it for kids, because it is all natural, cost-effective, simple to customize, and easy to make. The Kiddo helps me make it and her friends love the flavors and the little containers.

All you need is…

1 packet of Kool-Aid or flavored drink mix

1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil (Petroleum Jelly for a more lasting gloss)

1 Tbsp of powdered sugar add more or less to taste. The sugar is important because the powdered drink mix is lip puckeringly tart with out it.

1/4 cup of Warm water to dissolve the Kool-Aid powder. If you want a more intense flavor and color use less water. 1/4 of a cup offers a light flavor and pastel color.

1 Container – I found .75 fluid ounce pots at the pharmacy in the travel section.

Step 1

Mix the Water, Kool-Aid, and sugar in a cup. Make sure to dissolve all the sugar and powder in the liquid.

Step 2

Put 1 tbsp of the coconut oil in a bowl. Add 1/4 of a tsp of the liquid mixture to the coconut oil and mix well. If you want a stronger flavor or pigment add 1/4 of a teaspoon more and mix well.

Step 3

Spoon your mixture into the pot and let set up.

Coconut oil melts/softens with body temperature, mixing, and the warm water. For a quick set put the pot in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

 

Tip: If you want a more glossy or longer lasting lip gloss use petroleum jelly instead of the coconut oil.  The coconut oil solidifies in the pot when stored in a cool dry place (If the coconut oil gets warm it becomes soft.) and the petroleum jelly stays in gel form.

I like the coconut because it feels more natural and I do not worry if my younger nieces accidentally (on purpose) eat it.
