This Heart-Shaped Waffle Maker is Perfect for Valentine’s Day

This Heart-Shaped Waffle Maker is Perfect for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is officially around the corner and you can bet I am already thinking of all the cute ways to celebrate, hence, this blog post. This past weekend, I pulled out my heart-shaped waffle maker and was inspired to create a beautiful spread that was perfect for brunch. My cute little niece was a part of the action, and based on her excitement, I think any kid would agree that this heart-shaped waffle maker is perfect for Valentine’s Day. So what was supposed to be a morning of creating a beautiful brunch charcuterie board turned into a fun activity with the niece. I kid you not, she probably ate like 20 mini waffles, haha.

A Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

A Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Today is officially the first day of fall – which also means it’s the anniversary of mrsprofresh.com. When I first launched the blog under missprofresh.com in 2016, my very first blog post was a pumpkin spice latte recipe. Surprise, surprise – haha. Anyway, if you know me, you know I love a delish #psl on any given day from late August to November. Since my old website is long gone (and lost), I thought today was the perfect day to “resurface” my first blog post from four years ago – A Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe.

A Healthy Frosting Alternative

A Healthy Frosting Alternative

Nothing like a YUMMY and FRESH-out-the-oven funfetti or strawberry cupcake on your birthday, huh?!? Well, at least in our house. We LOVE funfetti and strawberry flavored cupcakes. The hubby’s birthday was yesterday and I knew I wanted to bake a batch of cupcakes with a delicious healthy frosting recipe. The good news? I found one worth sharing!

I love to give credit where it’s due so I’ll link the original recipe here. The only reason I modified it was because I prefer a subtle hint of sweet, not a fan of sweet frosting. (And when I read to use one cup of powdered sugar, I was like, “No way, Jose.” But this is a judgement-free zone – you do you, honey.)

Here is what you’ll need to make my version:

  • 2 cups of non-fat plain greek yogurt (I used 3 Chobani cups.)
  • 4 tablespoons of white powdered sugar, or to taste (for a sweeter flavor, add more)
  • 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract

Step 1

Drain the greek yogurt by placing a strainer over a bowl. Add the yogurt on the strainer and wrap it with plastic wrap to cover the yogurt.

Step 2

Place the yogurt in the fridge to drain. The recommended time to drain is at least 2 hours but overnight is preferred. (I drained the yogurt for two days but not on purpose…I just couldn’t finish the process sooner.)

Step 3

Once the yogurt is drained, add it to a clean bowl. Next, you will add the remaining ingredients – powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix until the mixture thickens.

Step 4

Let the frosting begin! Be sure to wait until the cupcakes (or cake) are cool enough to frost, otherwise, the frosting will melt away.

I used a zip blog bag to create cute designs – or least I tried to create cute designs, LOL!

If you decide to try this frosting, please let me know your thoughts! The hubby liked it so you can bet I will continue to use this recipe in the future.
