I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Holstein Housewares. I received product samples to facilitate this post well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
We’re only a few days into summer, but it’s been pretty perfect so far. Are you tired of hearing me harp on about our Summer Bucket List? It’s been a pretty influential tool in helping us keep our days busy (without being too busy) and full of fun things.
Last week we visited a brand new, local “pick your own” strawberry patch. I intended on making a bunch of jam with our load but I decided that the first batch of fresh berries shouldn’t be wasted on preserving– that should come later in the season.
No, the first batch should be eaten fresh and devoured quickly.
As always, the best recipes are the simplest. We picked some fresh mint from the garden and tossed together the strawberries, bananas, a little bit of lime and mint. Let it sit for a few hours and you end up with fresh fruit salsa.
Our favorite way to enjoy fruit salsa is over vanilla waffles and a generous portion of homemade whipped cream.
How much do you love those little heart waffles?! They are the most recent product we’ve tried from Holstein Housewares and my kids are pretty obsessed with them.
The Holstein Housewares brand was born after identifying a need in the housewares industry for family-friendly fun and functional small kitchen appliances. They specialize in the design of innovative, high-quality Novelty Electrics offering families endless combinations of delicious treats and healthy meals for casual entertaining.
I love their stylish, easy-to-use treat makers– they save me time and energy in the kitchen and I don’t have to heat my entire house when I whip up a batch of fresh muffins, donut bites or when I want to make breakfast. Want to try it for yourself? You can purchase products directly from the Holstein website.
Of course, when you make your food yourself it’s easy to control the amount of sugar and quality of ingredients that you use. With the kids home all summer long I foresee these adorable little treats coming in very, very handy!
