How to Make Dairy Free Whipped Coffee

I’m sure you’ve seen it all over social media. Whipped Coffee is everywhere. And if you’re fancy and in the know, you call it Dalgona Coffee. It’s apparently taking the quarantined world by storm and it’s easy to see why. As soon as I saw a gourmet looking coffee drink I could make at home and that looked better than something I could get from the Starbucks drive-thru, I knew I needed to try it.

Date Night Ideas When You’re Stuck At Home

We’re currently on day 14 of our CoronaVirus lockdown. Anyone know what day of the week it is? Cause I’ve been wearing the same pair of yoga pants for 3 days straight, our extra quarantine snacks are long gone and it’s possible that I may have forgotten how to drive a car. Seriously, I don’t even know where my keys are.

But I’m starting to think we might need to adjust to our new normal for longer than I had anticipated. Our schools here in PA just extended the closures until mid April, and chances are it could be longer than that. So some of the normal things we used to take for granted may need to… well, adapt. And that includes date night.

And of course there’s always Uber and Lyft if you want a private ride. But another option to keep in mind is Disney’s own personal shuttle service with the adorably appointed name.

How to Rent Disney Vacation Club Points

It’s no secret. A Disney vacation is expensive.

To be fair, Disney has an amazing product to offer, and they know it. And no matter how expensive it gets, people still flock there with wallets open wide and a smile on their face. And I’m right there with them wearing my Disney tee and Mickey ears. So as long as people are willing to pay the prices they charge we won’t be seeing any major drop in price any time soon.

Zip Lining in Costa Rica: All You Need to Know

Costa Rica is not remotely lacking in adventurous opportunities. Most of them I wouldn’t touch with a 10 foot pole, because I’m a wuss (a casual walk through the rainforest in the dark? No thanks!). But one of the things I knew we had to try was zip lining in Costa Rica. I’m not sure what I was thinking, because I’m so dang afraid of heights.

Whole30 Recipes Your Kids Will Actually Eat

Last September my husband and I decided to take on the Whole30. But as you might know we have 3 kids. And one of my biggest pet peeves is having to make not 1, but 2 dinners in order to appease everyone. So it was really important that I find kid-friendly recipes that not only met the requirements of the Whole30, but that wouldn’t cause a scene at the dinner table.

So began our 30 days of trial and error…
