Dr. E’s Einkorn Blueberry muffins!

These Muffins are delicious y’all!

I came up with this recipe and of course was inspired by Young Living’s Einkorn flour!

If you don’t know about the amazing benefits of Einkorn Flour, google it! It’s pretty amazing and is the “ancient grain” as they call it!

These Muffins have healthy alternatives – no butter, dairy, refined sugars, or white flour! ENJOY!!!

 

White Chocolate, Cranberry, & Orange Oil Cookies!

I have to say my husband did the cutest thing ever!!!

He baked cookies for me and the kids the other night and was so beyond excited to have the guess the “Secret Ingredient”!

It was Orange Oil!!! How cool is that? #1 My hubby baking and #2 thinking of adding an Essential oil to the batch! Pretty awesome!

Please bake and enjoy, these are ridiculously delicious! Great for Holidays and all year round! I use primarily organic ingredients, just cause!

  • 1 ½ sticks of organic unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup organic light brown sugar
  • ½ cup organic white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract (I like to use Madagascar Bourbon)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup dried organic cranberries
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3 drops of YL Orange Essential Oil

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla and egg to combine.

Then beat in the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and pinch of salt until a soft dough has formed. Stir in the cranberries and white chips by hand.

Roll into 1 tbsp balls and place on cookie sheet. Refrigerate the cookie dough for AT LEAST 1-3 HOURS. You can even chill it overnight! 1 hour chill time is mandatory to prevent cookies from spreading and to create that light, soft and chewy texture.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.. Place onto the cookie sheets about 1-2″ apart from one another. Bake 8-10 min. Rotate pans halfway through and allow 10 min to cool on rack! ENJOY!!!!

Cooking with Vitality Oils – Part 1 – Basil, Bergamot, Black Pepper, Carrot Seed, and Celery Seed Oils!

This is brought to you by Smiley Oil Crew Member Angela Perret! Thank you for your hard work and submission!

Perfect for adding flavor to your favorite foods or using as dietary supplements, the Vitality line of dietary essential oils gives you the freedom to share and explore some of our best-loved essential oils in a variety of nutritious and delicious ways. In a 5-part blog, we will discuss ways to enhance your culinary fare using Young Living’s newest line of essential oils, Vitality!
Basil Vitality (Ocimum basilicum) is popular in Asian and European cuisine and offers a sweet, warm scent and flavor. Pairing well with savory foods, the sweet and slightly peppery flavor of Basil makes a wonderful addition to sauces, breads, soups, chicken or seafood, adding a more defined flavor than with the dried herb, without having the added steps of preparing the fresh herb. To add just a hint of basil, use a toothpick dipped in the oil and swirl it around in your food preparations.
Suggested uses from Young Living:
  • Add to deli-salads, Asian or Italian-inspired soups, or salad dressings/vinaigrettes
  • Mix with a mild tea such as chamomile with a few drops of honey to add sweetness

Spinach Quiche:
Here’s a recipe we have tried and love: Organic Tomato Sauce
Bergamot Vitality is cold pressed from the bergamot fruit, which is known for giving Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavor. The zesty, citrus taste of Bergamot makes it a great choice for seafood dishes.
Suggested uses from Young Living:
  • 1-2 drops in a vegetarian gel capsule taken as a dietary supplement
  • Several times during grilling, brush seafood with Bergamot Vitality-infused olive oil
  • In place of a teaspoon of citrus zest, use a drop of Bergamot in baked goods recipes
  • Mix 1-2 drops with some Blue Agave sweetener and use as a drizzle on muffins or tarts

  • Add to fresh made salsa or guacamole

Carrot Seed Vitality (Daucus carota sativa) essential oil is distilled from the seeds and aerial parts of wild carrots. Its complex flavor brings a delicious addition to savory dishes.

  • 1 drop to roasted veggies to give an earthy flavor
  • 1-2 drops added to salad dressing
  • Add some drops to perk up the flavor of quinoa or wild rice
Celery Seed Vitality is produced from the steam distillation of dried seeds and brings a pleasant aroma and taste to pickling blends and brines. Its earthy and grassy flavor can add a unique taste to coleslaw and salad dressings, and can also be used for seasoning poultry.
Suggested uses from Young Living:
  • 1-2 drops added to a vegetarian gel capsule and taken as a dietary supplement

Easy Essential Oil Infused Guacamole!

Easy Essential Oil Infused Guacamole!

I LOVE guacamole!  So I thought, why not do a little detox while I’m stuffing my face full?  Citrus oils are great for cleansing the liver, so I incorporate them into my diet whenever I can.  As it turns out, this guacamole tastes amazing and is my new fave!

You’ll need:
3-4 ripe avocados (depending on size)
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/8 cup chopped cilantro
1/8 cup chopped tomato (optional)
1 clove garlic
Garlic powder and sea salt to taste (or my favorite, Tony Cacherie’s seasoning)
6 drops Young Living’s Lime Vitality Oil
4 drops Young Living’s Orange Vitality Oil
1 drop Black Pepper Vitality Oil

Put it in a bowl and mix it all up.  That’s it, you’re done!  Of course, you can always substitute lemon and lime juice instead of the oils, but I really love the citrus flavor the lime and orange provide and the kick from the black pepper, along with the added health benefits that come along with using essential oils!

Feel free to visit our blog as well at: smileydropsofsunshine.blogspot.com 🙂

Thanks and have a great oily day!

Homemade Thieves Throat Drops Recipe!

Homemade Thieves Throat Drops

I love, love, love these throat drops and more importantly my kids love them!  Thieves and lemon are such great immunity boosters, but it’s hard for me to get my kids to consume thieves because of the strong taste. The taste of thieves in these drops is masked by the honey, and coughs and that scratchy throat feeling are gone immediately!

You only need 3 ingredients:
1 cup raw ulfiltered honey (local if possible)
8 drops Thieves Young Living Esssential Oil
4 drops Lemon Young Living Essential Oil

You’ll also need:
Quart sized or slightly smaller saucepan
1 candy thermometer
Silicone candy molds or parchment paper
IMG_7173

First, pour the honey in the saucepan and set to slightly over medium heat.  (On  my electric stove I use a 6.)
Cook the honey until it gets to 300 degrees.  This is important, because if it doesn’t get to 300 the lozenges won’t get hard, but if it gets too hot the honey can start to burn.  The honey will look similar to this:

IMG_7174

When it gets to 300 degrees, remove from heat and let it cool.  Don’t cool it in the fridge or it will start to harden unevenly.  When the honey begins to set, add in the oils and stir.  Spoon the mixture into silicone molds or onto parchment paper. Do this as quickly as possible because the longer the honey cools, the more stiff and taffy like it will get.  Make sure you don’t use wax paper, as the lozenges will stick.  (I speak from experience) This is how mine came out.  Not exactly perfect, but my mouth doesn’t know the difference. 🙂

IMG_7172

Once they’re cooled (it only takes a few minutes), wrap in parchment paper to keep the lozenges from sticking together, or if you’re like me and this step sounds too complicated, I find they don’t stick to each other if you keep them in the freezer in a ziplock bag.  This recipe can definitely get a little messy, but it’s an easy clean up, and so worth it!  My kids always come to me asking for their oils when they start feeling bad.  Now they ask for these lozenges too! 🙂
