Smoothie Social and Graduations

**House Party has a new name it is now

In early June, I was awarded a HouseParty #sponsored by #Silk and #NutriBullet.  It was a Smoothie Social.  I think I have discussed how works in a previous post. I was really excited to find that as a Hostess, I would receive a NutriBullet Pro 900, measuring cups, bamboo cutting board, a hard cover recipe book and ice trays.  Earthbound Farms provided vegetable coupons that I was able to use when I provided the fruit and vegetables for my social.  My guests got to take home coupons from Silk, #Earthbound Farms for free products and even 20% off NutriBullet, recipes, Silk Mason jar mugs, and bamboo spoons that we also used at the social.  We tried out many different recipes and my guests and I were very impressed with how amazing the NutriBullet Pro worked over the blender I previously used. Check them out for your-self.  

The end of June brought graduation cakes.  The cakes were simple butter cream, but the humid air was not playing nice.


I was disappointed in the brand of vanilla that I purchased, although it was my usual standby.  I bought another brand, but remained disappointed.  It just seemed like it wasn't as fragrant as normal.  I think I would like to try to make my own vanilla.  I know many bakers who make their own vanilla.   Anyone have any pointers for me making vanilla from scratch?  I would love to hear from you.
