                                            Marshmallows03

                                              You can do so much with this recipe. You start with making fresh marshmallows, then dip them and dress them however you see fit. Customize it for the holidays or for personal taste.

                                                      Just wanted to lick the screen because of that glistening chocolate, don’t you? I don’t think any of these recipes are finger food, but I don’t think you’d wait to grab a fork to snatch up one of these.

                                                      28.  S’more Shot Glasses

                                                        29.  S’more Pies

                                                        slide_320783_3001339_free

                                                          Served hot or cold? Slight warm or chilled? I’d have to heat this one up for a few seconds so I could delight in the way it pulls away with each gooey bite full.

                                                          30.  Red Velvet and Marshmallow Cookies

                                                          slide_320783_3001328_free

                                                            This is a recipe that has been made over and over, and it’s a great reminder that you can do so much with it. You have a base, the cookie, some marshmallow cream, and then drizzle or dip it in some sort of chocolate. Get creative with color, and you’ll have something you wouldn’t mind gifting someone at a special holiday.

                                                            31.  Sweet & Salty Guinness Chocolate Pie with Marshmallow Meringue

                                                            slide_320783_3000853_free

                                                              I dare you to try this one out. It sounds like it would be difficult to pull off, but it is that much more interesting because of it. It probably tastes divine. The beer has to give it some sort of signature taste, but in some cases, the beer or liqueur just adds a little note. Serving with a pretzel is a cute way to stay with the theme.

                                                              32.  Snowy Street Marshmallow Ice-cream

                                                              slide_320783_3000854_free

                                                                Just the name alone is enough to make you want to put it on your menu. The recipe plays off of rocky road ice cream, but it is all about vanilla and white chocolate.

                                                                I hope these recipes inspire you to go on and beyond with your love of marshmallows. They really are only the tip of the iceberg because some people have been able to fill up blogs and books with just recipes about your favorite confection. The love of the marshmallow seems to know no bounds.

                                                                The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

                                                                The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

                                                                Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

                                                                your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

                                                                  Why You Need a Vision

                                                                  Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

                                                                  Advertising

                                                                  How to Create Your Life Vision

                                                                  Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

                                                                  What Do You Want?

                                                                  The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

                                                                  It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

                                                                  Advertising

                                                                  • Remember to ask why you want certain things
                                                                  • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
                                                                  • Give yourself permission to dream.
                                                                  • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.

If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

                                                                  • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?

                                                                  • What beliefs would you have needed to change?

Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

                                                                  It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
