You Don’t Want A Unicorn

you-dont-want-a-unicorn

You may think having a pet unicorn would be fun. Glitter and rainbows. A magical horse with a horn. No one else has one. You would be the envy of all your friends. Who else would be able to ride a unicorn to school, be pushed on the swings by one, and eat lunch with Magic?

WRONG!!!!!!!!

Unicorns are not like that at all. They are messy, destroy your bed, toys and will invite all of their friends over to help mess up your house. How will they ever get their home back to normal? You’ll need to read it to find out.

Be careful what you wish for, you don’t want a unicorn!!

Fun story written by Ame Dyckman with colorful illustrations by Liz Climo that will delight your child. Although I’m not so sure it will be a great bed time story as your child will be laughing.

My Daughter’s favorite part is when they kept saying “poof” because it’s fun to say. She gives it 6 unicorns out of 10. I give it an 8 unicorns out of 10.

This book will be released on Feb 14, 2017 but you can pre-order now! Hachette Book Group sent my daughter and I – You Don’t Want A Unicorn in exchange for an honest review of the book.

Plant-Powered Dressings An eBook by Dreena Burton

ppd_cover-1

I’ll be honest, even though I’m vegan, I don’t really eat salads. With that being said, this eBook is going to come in handy. If you are looking for a sauce for grains, potatoes or even for that bed of lettuce and veggies, Dreena has you covered.

Dreena has 10 brand new oil free dressings to please your taste buds. Her eBook starts off with ingredient notes, letting you know what she has used or why you should use a certain color of chia seeds. She also tells you what her go to brands are.

Listen to these titles: 24-Carrot Gold Dressing, Basic Chia Vinaigrette, Limealicious Vinaigrette, Greek Salad Vinaigrette, Ranch Dressing, Lemon- Thyme Caper Dressing, Green Goddess Dressing, Creamy Nut-Free Caesar, Balsamic-Date Vinaigrette, Vegan Island Dressing, Maple Chipotle Chickpea Dressing…. oh yummy!! I’m actually wanting a salad now. I’m really wanting to make the 24-carrot gold dressing, ranch, and Island dressing, oh who am I kidding? I want to make them all.

If you have never visited her website, I suggest you do. Here’s the link Plant Powered Kitchen. Do not go hungry, I’m not even kidding. She’s amazing, and every single recipe I have made by her are all keepers. Even your veggie hating spouse will love the recipes.

Nicole Axworthy from A Dash Of Compassion is behind the beautiful photograph’s that will make you hungry. To buy Dreena’s ebook click on the title: Plant Powered Dressings.

With permission from Dreena, I am able to share a recipe. This is soooo good, it’s very tempting to drink it straight from the mason jar.

24- Carrot Gold Dressing recipe by Dreena Burton, photo credit goes to Nicole Axworthy.

INGREDIENTS:
½ cup carrot, cut into discs or small chunks

⅓ cup water

1½ tbsp red wine vinegar

1 – 1½ tbsp tahini (use full 1½ tbsp for richer flavor)

1 tbsp pure maple syrup

½ tbsp chickpea miso

½ tsp fresh ginger, roughly chopped

¼ tsp (rounded) sea salt

Instructions:

Using a standing blender (high-powered works best to smooth, but regular blender will also work, just purée longer), purée all the ingredients until very smooth. Serve, or refrigerate. Will keep about 4-5 days in the fridge.
Note: Fresh ginger has a better flavor than dried ginger. Buy a few knobs and keep it in your refrigerator. Then, for this recipe, simply trim away the peel and chop a small amount, you need just a little. It doesn’t have to be finely chopped, as the blender will take care of working it through the dressing.
