Inspired to Abundance 2016 – Sum 2

The sum to spend is $100:

$95 – CBD infused coconut oil by Sisters of the Valley

$5 – shipping (I know it’s not likely, but what else would I do with $5?)


I would get this oil to help both my Mum and myself. My Mum is in end-stage dementia and has chronic pain from a slowly-healing ulcer/lesion on her coccyx, while I have dealt with migraines ever since I was young. It would be nice for Mum and I to live with a little less pain.

Inspired to Abundance 2016 – Sum 1

The first sum is easy!

The sum to spend is $20:

$5 – organic coconut milk ice cream (vanilla)

$5 – organic coconut milk ice cream (chocolate)

$5 – pint of organic raspberries

$5 – bag of  marshmallows


It’s not hard at all to spend $20, so I’ve “used” it for a bunch of sundae stuff for my family.

Not a sundae per se, but the best pic I could find. ;0)

Day 27 ~ Post my fave recipe:

My favourite recipe is definitely my Cocoa Mocha Quenelles recipe. They’re rich and chocolate-y and oh so yummy. ❤

Cocoa-Mocha Quenelles - Redux

Every once in a while I like to re-visit my favourite recipes, and give them a little tweak. My latest recipe to receive an adjustment is my Cocoa-Mocha Quenelles recipe. I originally shared it on April 3, 2012, in a post called “Come to the Dark Side – We have Cookies! Cocoa-Mocha Quenelles.” My Elflings ask me to make these cookies if I haven’t made them for a while, and remind me exactly how long it’s been since I’d made them last. Their epic mathiness is well-played in this respect. So, without further ado, I will get to the redux aspect of our favourite recipe. ;0)

Cocoa-Mocha Quenelles – Redux
2 C unbleached flour* (wheat, rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc)
1 tsp baking powder*
1 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp cocoa*
1 Tbsp cornstarch*
1 C butter* 
¾ C brown sugar*
½ C sugar*
3 tsp En-R-G egg replacer
8 Tbsp strong decaf coffee* (or caffeinated, your choice)
2 tsp vanilla* extract
* = Organic

 Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C/Gas Mark 5. Add flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa, and cornstarch to a medium-sized bowl. Stir with a whisk to blend, and set aside. In a larger bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy. Blend in egg replacer, coffee, and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until well-blended. drop by teaspoonful (or shape into elegant quenelles) onto an un-greased cookie sheet, about 1″ apart. Bake for 8 minutes, or until lightly browned. Makes approximately 3 dozen. Enjoy! ❤
