Japanese Cherry Blossom Aprons and Soy Sauce Ice Cream

The other week I was at a blogging show and one of the booths was from Kikoman Soy Sauce and they were serving soy sauce ice cream which they were trying to tell people tasted like Salted Caramel.  Unfortunately for them, the soy sauce ice cream did not taste like salted caramel at all but instead was pretty gross tasting.  If you try to tell yourself it tastes like salted caramel then it can start to taste like it, but if you have taste buds or like salted caramel you’ll be disappointed.  Although the soy sauce ice cream didn’t taste anything like Salted Caramel, it did eventually grow on me and I was sort of craving it when I got back.  Luckily they emailed everyone who stopped by their booth the recipe for soy sauce ice cream so I thought it would make a fun post to share with all of you as well as a fun Japanese cherry blossom apron for women.  I’ll show you the Japanese cherry blossom apron first and then I’ll post the recipe below the Japanese cherry blossom apron for women.

Cupcake aprons are some of the best selling womens aprons around.  With shows like cupcake wars on the Food Network and cupcake shops opening up all over the country, everyone wants to have the perfect fun and flirty apron to match their new favorite dessert.  Cupcakes are perfect because they are small enough that you don’t eat an entire cake and they are able to satisfy your craving without letting you go overboard.  There are hundreds of flavors and decorations and icings you can use as well as sizes so you can get your fix all day long.  In some cities you even have cupcake trucks like curbside cupcakes here in Washington DC which help you to get your cupcake cravings under control.  That is one of the reasons I love these cupcake aprons for women.

They are cute to look at, fun to wear and extremely colorful so they can actually help to inspire you to do more in the kitchen and be more creative.  The fun cupcake print apron I got from the blogging show definitely has inspired a few new recipes to make fruit fun for kids as well as ways to decorate and arrange everything from pizzas to cakes and even sandwiches by coloring them.  I love when things are colorful and can help to inspire new designs and styles and make things fun for everyone and that is why I love this cupcake apron for women.

Sesame Street Fruit Desserts for Kids

cookie monster fruit cup dessert

cookie monster fruit cup dessert

One of the hardest things to do is to get your kids to eat healthy…especially when it comes to fruit for dessert instead of cake.  That’s why I like to mix the two together to make a dessert that is fun to look at and for your kids to eat.  Here is an example of a single serving cookie monster dessert for your kids.  I’ll also give you tricks on how to make Oscar, Elmo, Big Bird (with vegetables), The Count, The Orange one and a couple more.

You’ll need:

  • 1 sugar cookie or chocolate chip cookie
  • Whipped cream
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Strawberries

First you bake your cookies or take a pre-made cookie and lay it in the bottom of the serving dish.  Then you can do a layer of cake above it or you can add in a layer of buttercream icing or even just some whipped cream.  If you want it to be healthier, then pour in more blueberries.

Once your serving dish is filled to the top with blueberries, take your whipped cream and make two large ovals towards the top.  Now cut the tops off of two blackberries and place them towards each other on the bottom of the eyes.

Now take a few blackberries and start arranging them into an oval that covers the bottom part of the serving dish.  You may need to take out some blueberries to get them to stay.  The middle picture is laying on top and the bottom is with them arranged in the blueberries.

The last step is to take your strawberry and cut off the top.  Now slice it in half and place the rounded part up for the tongue.

Then all you need to do is serve it to your kids.  They will absolutely love these desserts and you’ll love that they are eating fruit instead of just sugar and other desserts.  You can also get creative and use strawberries or cherries for Elmo (pit the cherries though), light purple grapes for the Count, green grapes for Oscar or you can use sliced Kiwi’s which looks better, Corn and carrots (slice the carrots into long strips) for big bird, use orange slices for the orange character and you can pretty much make any of the sesame street characters easily by finding fruits that are around the same colors as them.

Mint Green Aprons & Minty Green Cocktail Recipes

When I saw this mint green apron with polka dots at one of my favorite apron shops, I instantly fell in love with it and thought of cocktails because I just got back from a vacation in Mexico and the ruffled fringes on the bottom remind me of a Mexican or even Spanish Flamenco Dress.  When I first saw the mint green apron with polka dots, I thought that a fun circular lime tart or lime bars cut in circles with powdered sugar or a simple powdered supgar and milk glaze would be ideal, but this mint green apron makes me think of summer and serving fun and refreshing cocktails with friends.  So instead of doing a food recipe, here are some of my favorite cocktails that are minty, green or match this fun accessory perfectly for when you have company and don’t want to spill or splash anything on your outfit…not to mention the fact that it is super cute and slightly Spanish.

Women’s Apron Mint-a-liscious

For $25.95 you can find this fun mint green apron with polka dots at one of my favorite apron stores by clicking on the image or link above.  They call it a candy store styled apron but I think it’s fabulously flamenco.

The multiple layers of fun ruffles and the sexy cuts and stylish sides make this cool mint green apron a hot thing to wear when mixing drinks, prepping food and getting ready to serve guests on your patio, in your kitchen or when walking out to the backyard to check on the grill for lime shrimp skewers and to replenish a lime or cilantro guacamole.

The Mint Green Polka Dot Apron is one of the best selling green aprons and you’ll love the little bows on the right side that go over the top of the pocket and the comfortable straps on the back.  It features a smooth flat from without huge pouches and provides a great and flirty look for taller ladies who want to show off why their height is one of the sexiest things about them.  If you’re short or curvy, don’t worry because this style also helps to show off your curves and the ruffles help to make this almost like a dress to show your entire shape off and get the guys ready to dance.

If you want a fun mint green apron with polka dots that is unique, modern and fabulous, this is the perfect one for you and it also makes an awesome gift to bring to a summer party or for cocktails, margaritas and small sandwich parties.

Lemon Lime and Lychee Summer Love

This fabulous drink is super easy and super tasty at the same time. Just take two parts three olives lemon lime vodka and mix it with soda water and a splash of lychee juice or puree. Then take a lime and squeeze it in but only about half of the juice of the wedge. For a garnish, use anything from a mint leaf to a lime wheel.

Big Melon Mama Martini

This is a fun one to serve and say. Take a shot of Midori Melon liquor, a shot of lemon lime vodka and shake it over ice with sours mix. If it’s too thick for you, then mix in a splash of lime juice and a splash of soda water or just let it melt down in the ice in the shaker for an extra minute.

The Classic Mojito

This one is a bit more complicated but one that everyone loves. You’ll need a light or clear colored rum, mint leaves, simple syrup, club soda and lime wedges. Take the lime and the mint and crush them together into the cup. Then pour a couple of tablespoons of simple syrup over it. Add in as much rum as you’d like in your drink and then fill the rest with club soda. You can also put splashes of other flavors in to make different flavors of mojitos and garnish it with mint leaves, lime wedges or whatever fruit you used to flavor the mojito with.

Once you know which cocktails you’ll want to serve, don’t forget you’ll need the perfect serving accessory. Buy the mint green apron with polka dots above and show off as you mix and serve your favorite summertime cocktails to your friends.
