We do love root beer around here! Especially with a little ice cream and the homemade touch. We also love to have it on our pizza nights! It all just is down home goodness!I have always been fascinated with the ol’ time flavor and the name sarsaparilla. There really is a difference in taste! It is stronger and really more delightful with the tastes of herbs like real vanilla and licorice root. Just amazing flavors pop out! I think you will like this! This recipe makes a quart of syrup that you can use to make your root beer and as a syrup over your favorite ice cream too. For any occasion, you will impress your family and friends with this special drink! So here ya go: 4 cups of water ¼ sassafras bark 2 tbsp organic anise seed 2 organic vanilla beans or 4 tbsp of pure vanilla extract ½ tsp organic licorice root 10 organic juniper berries 3 large organic hops flowers (optional but love the flavor)
How to Make:Place 4 cups of water in a pot and bring to boil. Add sassafras bark and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain the herbs using a large mesh strainer. Measure the resulting liquid and add ½ part of honey. To 1 part liquid. So if you have 2 cups of liquid add 1 cup of honey.
To make into a soda:You can add your homemade root beer syrup to a sparkling soda machine or add Club soda to your syrup. Depending on taste you add however much syrup to your soda mixture. Of course, serve in a mason jar to get that ol’ fashioned look! These are nice too for your everyday tea blend making or recipes. ENJOY it we sure did!!!
Six Best Cocoa Recipes
I enjoy a nice cup of hot cocoa and recently I came upon some fun recipes. Six great blends I use all the time, plus I can package up and easily give as gifts. It is always nice to give a gift of variety. Just makes it kinda special. Each one of these you can add more or less of any ingredient depending on your taste buds.
Adding a bit of the herb on top of your whipping cream gives your mug a touch of love too if you are serving to a guest.

HI ALL Who wants to be WELL? There are SO many myths out there to make you believe you are eating or trying to eat healthy but still have symptoms in your daily life. One that popped out to me was taking the birth control pill to ease menstrual cramps. By just adding herbal foods into your daily routine diet can get you off harmful drugs and get your body well! Well, watch her video and find out WHY this one and others are lies that are not getting to the ROOT of you issues. Recently I discovered someone who I feel compelled to share with you. Her name is Magdalena Wszelaki, and she is going to be doing a free workshop sharing her journey back to health after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis as well as several other conditions all rooted in out of balance hormones brought on by stress and environmental toxins. Her secret: food and specifically the right foods for her body. You see, a lot of women believe that they are “eating pretty healthy.” Maybe you are one of them.
But if you are suffering from symptoms of hormone imbalances including PMS, PCOS, Endometriosis, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, fibroids, estrogen dominance, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, low libido… just to name a few, then you owe it to yourself to register now for Magdalena’s free workshop: “How to Use Food to Rebalance Your Hormones.” Register here >> https://xa202.isrefer.com/go/
(Can’t make that time? No worries. Register anyway and Magdalena will send you the replay link.) During this workshop you will learn:
- *1/2 cup unsalted butter
- *1 cup all-purpose flour
- *2 cups organic sugar, divided
- *1 tablespoon baking powder
- *Pinch of salt
- *1 cup almond milk
- *4 cups fresh peach slices

- Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
- Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add almond milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).
