Fitness Friday: Ice Cream & Cake

I’m a little bummed about the quality of this week’s Fitness Friday video. I had recorded this routine (and nailed it I might add) last week but when I got home I realized that it was out of focus – WAHHHHH. So I knew I needed to re-record it, and then somehow forgot to take my DSLR with me and ended up having to record with my phone which isn’t quite as nice, especially in a low light setting.

icandcAll that aside, this week’s video is to Ice Cream and Cake from Mega Mix 48. I actually had this song on my iPod from a few years ago but never got around to choreographing it. Then when it appeared on last month’s release I decided it was time to get working on it!

I’m a fan of a crazy merengue, and this one fits the bill without being too difficult to learn.

And then of course it’s called Ice Cream and Cake, which makes it a winner right from the start, no? 馃槈

I hope you like it – have a great weekend!

Maple Creme Br没l茅e using Farmers Cream #PartOfYourEveryDay

All of my life my family has purchased Farmers products. That’s just the way it was. There were a couple other brands out there, but we always bought Farmers.

Farmers is聽an Atlantic Canadian brand that is nearly 100 years old, using milk from local dairy farmers – our neighbours and friends. Even after I got married and moved out, my husband and I have continued buying Farmers,聽even when we got out for ice cream, 9 times out of 10 we go to Avery’s Farm Market where they sell Farmers Ice Cream.

I’ve been having fun creating new recipes with Farmers products this summer, most recently using Farmers Whipping Cream to make Maple Creme Br没l茅e! I had never made Creme Br没l茅e before and thought it would be fun to give it a try!
