Posts Tagged ‘Valentines Day’

What is your idea of celebrating Valentine day? Going for a nice romantic dinner? Having that special glass of wine while relaxing by a fireplace?  Maybe simply playing a fun game with family and friends?

We decided to offer a great recipe on homemade vegan truffle chocolates to top it all off!  These are soo delicious and easy to make! Very few ingredients are also required.

Here it is:

6 ounces of organic dark bittersweet chocolate (60% cocoa)

2/3 cup organic coconut cream (I use Wilderness family brand)

½ tsp vanilla extract

½ cup assorted coatings such as toasted coconut; grated chocolate; finely chopped pistachios; finely chopped toasted almonds

-Finely chop chocolate with food chopper; place in small batter bowl. Add coconut cream. Microwave, uncovered, on high 30 seconds; stir until smooth. If necessary, microwave an additional 15 seconds or until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Cover; and put in refrigerator until mixture is firm enough to scoop (at least 3 hours or overnight). Using small scoop, scoop truffles unto serving platter.

-Prepare assorted coatings and place into serving bowls. Roll truffles into


Enjoy! Also, don’t forget to wear your cute pair of Vandana Rose shoes 

Happy Valentines from Colourful Grass!

Paper straws take us back to a time when life was simpler. We weren’t consumed with thoughts of chemicals, organic food, and the price of oil. Instead, a group of friends sat at the local diner, sipping milkshakes or sodas with paper straws. Paper straws are vintage, retro and also modern at the same time. They are old….made new!

Check it out on Greenmunch giveaway.  They are quite the conversation piece at any birthday party, a backyard barbeque, a wedding, or even just for everyday use. Wedding planners and brides love them, and of course, kids love them too! They spice up a reception table with a splash of colour from stripes, polka dots and even red hearts for Valentines. They are compostable, so you don’t have to worry about the impact on the environment when you’re finished with them.

Giveaway details:

250 assorted straws, various colours (retail value $30) open to USA and Canada.
