                                            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.

                                                25.  Fluffer Nutter Bites

                                                  26.  6-layer Chocolate Cake with Marshmallow Filling

                                                  six-layer-chocolate-cake-26-600

                                                    slide_320783_3001395_free

                                                      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

                                                        Take one part sweet desert and one part cute glass and you have a very endearing presentation. You almost forget they are in 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.

                                                                How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                                                                Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

                                                                You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

                                                                Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

                                                                1. Work on the small tasks.

                                                                When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

                                                                Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

                                                                2. Take a break from your work desk.

                                                                Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

                                                                Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                3. Upgrade yourself

                                                                Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

                                                                The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

                                                                4. Talk to a friend.

                                                                Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

                                                                Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

                                                                5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

                                                                If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

                                                                Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

                                                                Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

                                                                If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

                                                                Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

                                                                Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

                                                                7. Read a book (or blog).

                                                                The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

                                                                Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

                                                                Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

                                                                8. Have a quick nap.

                                                                If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

                                                                Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

                                                                What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

                                                                10. Find some competition.

                                                                Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

                                                                Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

                                                                11. Go exercise.

                                                                Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

                                                                Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

                                                                As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

                                                                Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

                                                                Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

                                                                Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
