Cinnamon Baked Pears with Elderberry Whipped Cream and Manuka Honey

and unmistakable deep purple color, elderberry pairs beautifully with the flavor of pears in this healthy-ish dessert recipe for Cinnamon Baked Pears with Elderberry Whipped Cream and Manuka Honey. Simply place well-chilled heavy cream with a little honey or powdered sugar in a chilled bowl of your electric mixer and beat until thick, rich and creamy. Non-Dairy Tip: If looking for a non-dairy whipped cream, prepare your own replacing the heavy cream in this recipe with full fat, canned coconut milk that has been chilled in the refrigerator overnight. Guard Elderberry Crystals are also a healthy, natural way to add a deep fuchsia color to foods, like our whipped cream without the use of artificial food coloring.

Hot Cocktail Recipe: Scottish Coffee

If you’re new to the world of Scotch Whisky (you drop the ‘e’ in whisky when you’re in Scotland) unpeated whiskies are enjoyed because of their clean smooth flavor. What Scottish Whisky Should You Use in Scottish Coffee Nicely balanced with flavor notes of toffee, vanilla, and malt, we found that Bruichladdich’s Classic Laddie Scotch Whisky is a perfect choice for this recipe. To make French Press coffee you place coarse ground coffee (preferably from fresh ground beans) steeped in hot water in a French Press carafe, and then essentially steeped instead of brewed like a traditional coffee maker would do. What are the Ingredients for Scottish Coffee Bruichladdich’s Classic Laddie Scotch Whisky:

I recently had the opportunity to take part in a virtual whisky tasting of The Classic Laddie, the incredible flagship spirit from @Bruichladdich. #ad This unpeated and complex Scotch whisky is matured in a variety of cask types, made with 100% Scottish barley, and is triple distilled for truly smooth and amazing flavor. The tasting, led by Jeremy of @thecharredcask and Bianca @thescotchgirl was so much fun and we were also joined by May from @mayitakeabite and Richard of @rootbitters  While some people love peated scotch whiskeys with a smokey character, they’re definitely not for everyone. That’s where a spirit like the Classic Laddie comes in. With a gorgeous deep golden-caramel color derived entirely from sitting in the cask (no caramel color added as other distilleries often do), this smooth and warming Scotch whisky with malty, vanilla, oaky, and caramel-like, apple and berry notes is an incredibly enjoyable sip. Even for someone like me who’s a total newbie when it comes to drinking Scotch whisky, I could easily see myself sipping The Classic Laddie to warm up on a cold evening.  TAP OUR LINK to watch the tasting and learn more about #TheClassicLaddie and #Octomore from Bruichladdich! https://onbetterliving.com/the-finest-scotch-whiskeys/

How to Help Your Parents Choose a Senior Living Community

Once my mother turned 65, I began talking with her about moving from her house in Virginia and looking for a senior living community closer to me in Delaware. She’s also growing tired of maintaining her home and would like to enjoy more free time and convenience. Now that I’m over a year into this process, here are my top 5 tips from my personal experience on how to help your parents find the right senior living community. Memory Care – Memory care services provide quality care and support for seniors living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

On a cold winter’s night there’s nothing like a hot and boozy cocktail to help you unwind and warm your bones. A popular one for many is the Irish Coffee, a concoction made with hot brewed coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar, and topped with whipped cream. It’s one of my favorites too, but lately I’ve been making a similar version called the Scottish Coffee. If you haven’t guessed it already, this recipe uses almost all the same ingredients, except we shake things up a bit by using Scotch whisky instead of the Irish stuff. So, what's in this Scottish Coffee? The Classic Laddie Scotch Whisky from @Bruichladdich: This smooth unpeated scotch whisky with notes of malt and vanilla is the ideal choice to enjoy in your Scottish Coffee. Brown Sugar: For a bit of sweetness with a warm hint of molasses. Hot Brewed Coffee: We love the results using a French Press with freshly ground beans, but coffee brewed traditionally would be just fine. A medium roast coffee would work best. Warm Milk: This is optional, but if you typically take cream or milk in your coffee this is the way to go. Fresh Whipped Cream: Time for the big finale! Fresh whipped cream not only looks impressive, it’s also an important part of the experience. Slowly spoon in the whipped cream so it floats on top of the coffee, but don’t stir it. Sip the coffee through the whipped cream.  TAP OUR LINK to get the full, detailed recipe and learn more about The Classic Laddie! https://onbetterliving.com/scottish-coffee/

Greek Inspired Meze Board with Greek Yogurt & Feta Herb Dip

For centuries real Greek yogurt has been made thick by straining to remove its whey, a milk protein, and a liquid byproduct of yogurt-making that contains the sugar lactose. Newly introduced to the U. S. and made by a Greek company that has 70 years of experience making yogurt in Greece, Delta produces its yogurt the traditional way by double straining to remove whey instead of taking shortcuts with thickening agents. It’s also made from the same cultures (the good bacteria that turn milk into yogurt) from Greece’s largest island, Crete, that Greek families have been using to make yogurt for centuries. The result is a deliciously rich and creamy all-natural probiotic-rich yogurt that’s better than any others I’ve tried.

Once my mother turned 65, I began talking with her about moving from her house in Virginia and looking for a senior living community closer to us in Delaware. #ad While my mom is now retired, she’s still quite active. Even after TWO hip replacements, she still mows her own lawn, gardens, and walks her Labradoodle, Marley, several times per day. Her home is always clean and she’s still cooking up all of her famous, delicious meals. Needless to say, an ‘Independent’ senior living community that allows pets is a must. At first, the conversation about relocating to a senior living community was a bit difficult. In Virginia, she has a great support system with many friends, her own home, and her pets. But, she does live alone and now that COVID is a concern, she wants to be closer to us and her family in NY. She’s also growing tired of maintaining her home and would like to enjoy more free time and convenience. Luckily there are a lot of great options. For example, @BrookdaleLiving offers 740 different senior living communities in 45 states. I’m happy to say that there are 3 communities that we’re currently considering and she’s actually looking forward to her next adventure.
