In the world of low-carb and gluten-free diets, finding a satisfying replacement for traditional bread can be a challenge. But don’t worry; cloud bread has emerged as a divine solution. This light and airy bread, aptly named for its ethereal texture, has taken social media by storm, especially among keto enthusiasts. In this blog post, we’ll explore what cloud bread is, why it’s gained popularity, and how to make it at home.


What is Cloud Bread?

Cloud bread is a versatile and gluten-free bread substitute made with only a few simple ingredients: eggs, cream cheese or banana or Greek yogurt, and a leavening agent such as cream of tartar or baking powder. It’s the magic of these ingredients that gives cloud bread its unique texture, which is reminiscent of fluffy clouds. What’s the best part? It’s low in carbs, making it a favorite choice for those following the ketogenic diet.


Why is Cloud Bread So Popular?

Cloud bread has grown in popularity for a variety of reasons:
Low-Carb and Keto-Friendly: Because of its low carbohydrate content, cloud bread is ideal for low-carb and ketogenic diets, where carbohydrate intake is limited.
Gluten-Free: Cloud bread is a great option for those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease, as it contains no wheat or gluten.
Customizable: You can customize cloud bread to suit your taste. Make it sweet with sweeteners or go savory by adding herbs, spices, or shredded cheese.
Versatile: Cloud bread can be used in various ways – as a sandwich base, burger bun, pizza crust, or even as a snack with your favorite toppings.


Include Cloud Bread in your next party menu

Are you planning a special event or celebration? Consider using cloud bread as a unique and healthy addition to your party menu.

I’m always trying to find an excuse to bake cookies and eat them of course! Oatmeal cookies are healthier than any ordinary cookies, they are rich in iron and fibers. When chocolate and nuts are added, you have even more benefits, providing heathy fats and antioxidants to your diet. 

I just found another reason to make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! National Oatmeal Cookie Day is on April 30, get ready to celebrate! This day has been celebrated in the United States since the late 1800s. Why not spread the word?

There’s even more! Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are perfect to prepare ahead of time because they maintain their texture for at least 3 days in an airtight container. They can be made for children’s and tea parties and presented on trays, cake stands or in glass jars. They can also be made for school treats or as party favors! DIY party creations has a great variety of templates for decorating your party and presenting, labeling or packaging your cookies. 

They keep their texture for at least 3 days in an airtight container which makes them ideal to make ahead.

These healthy and delicious cookies will just make your day. Words can’t describe how good they are! Just try them and let me know…

 

Let’s start baking!

Bakes:12 large cookies
Preparation time: 30 min
Waiting time: min 2 hours, max 2 days
Baking time: total 11-22 min

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg (room temperature)
  • 115 gr unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 110 gr light brown sugar
  • 50 gr granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 125 gr oat flakes¹
  • 95 gr all purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • a pinch of salt (optional)
  • 170 gr semi sweet or dark chocolate chips²
  • 55 gr walnuts (or raisins, or any other nuts you like)

Procedure

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg, butter, both sugars and vanilla extract and whisk until you have a smooth creamy mixture.
  2. Add the oats, flour, cinnamon powder, soda, salt and beat in low speed until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Add the nuts and chocolate chips and gently stir to incorporate.
  4. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces, each weighing around 65 grams.
  5. Refrigerate the dough balls for at least two hours in an airtight container. They last for up to two days in the refrigerator.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (356ºF).
  7. Arrange the dough balls on your baking trays on nonstick baking sheets, spacing them out by approximately 5 cm. You can give them a little squeeze, if they are not too tough.
  8. For soft cookies, bake for 11 minutes, depending on your oven. If you want your cookies to be a bit crunchy, bake them a little bit longer until the edges start to turn golden brown .
  9. Take them out of the oven and set them aside to cool entirely, which should take approximately 10 minutes. As they cool, they get harder.
  10. Store in an airtight container for a week or in freezer-safe airtight food bags for six months.
     

¹ Quick oats are not recommended because they tend to absorb liquids very quickly and you may end up with dry cookies. Additionally, the cookies won’t have as much texture.

² I prefer to break up high-quality couverture chocolate bars into little pieces rather than using chocolate chips. Gives me the option of larger chocolate chips and a more chocolatey flavor.

Our modern carrot cake recipes, according to food historians, is thought to have its roots in the European Medieval period and was known as “carrot pudding”. At that time, sugar was expensive and many people used carrots as a natural sweetener. Although carrot cake recipes can be found in French, German, and Swiss cookbooks, the origin of carrot cake is thought to be in England.

Throughout history many similar recipes appear, mostly as desserts. Carrot pudding, carrot cake, carrot pancakes, carrot cake cookie, carrot bread, carrot cake porridge, carrot mugcake are some alternative names and presentations for similar recipes.

Carrot cake became popular in the United States in the 1960s. Since then, it has evolved into a classic American cake topped with cream cheese frosting. Perhaps this is how it came to be known as the most famous Classic American cake in the world. 

There must be hundreds of carrot cake recipes available in cookbooks and on the internet; it’s difficult to choose which one to make. I’ve been making this recipe for years and it never disappoints!

I’ve been making brownies since I was 10 years old and have tried many delicious brownie recipes from cookbooks, friends and the internet, which I’ve shared with family and friends. All of them were tasty, but not quite what I preferred, so I began experimenting and came up with this soft and delicious brownie recipe! 

It came as a surprise to find out that the United States celebrates National Brownie Day on December 8th. Brownies are the ultimate versatile “sweet,” and yes, they deserve to be celebrated! This sweet is neither a cake nor a cookie; it can be eaten as a snack or a dessert, and it can be served hot or cold.

Homemade chocolate brownies are my favorite classroom party treats, as well as a great choice for home tea/coffee parties, an office snack, or any other occasion. Kids adore them, and moms frequently ask for this simple and tasty recipe.

For classroom parties treats, I make the brownies, then cut them into squares with a sharp knife and place them in small transparent plastic food bags or small paper food bags 8,3X19,8 cm. Then seal them with a “thank you tag” or “gift tag” labels from DIYpartycreations.com, some yarn or ribbon, all of which I always have on hand … and the treats are ready for the kids at school!

Serving at home, I’ll cut large square pieces of brownies and place them in a serving tray or if served as a dessert the will go with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the summer and whipped cream & berries in the winter. Brownies are best served warm or at room temperature. I occasionally heat them in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.

For a tea buffet, I’ll serve smaller pieces in a serving tray and use “Buffet Tags” from DIYpartycreations.com to label all foods and drinks.

What’s great about this recipe is that you don’t have to do anything ahead of time other than make sure you have all of the ingredients. That is, eggs and butter do not need to be at room temperature.

So let’s get started!

Preparation: 15 minutes
Total Baking Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

• 4 eggs
• 350 gr brown sugar
• 350 gr unsalted butter
• 80 gr cocoa powder
• 100 gr all-purpose flour

Optionally
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 teaspoon instant coffee (improves the aroma of the cocoa, but do not include this ingredient if you are serving children)
• 170 gr chopped nuts (prefer walnuts)

For less sweetness in taste, I usually add all the optional ingredients.

 

Putting everything together

1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on high speed until the mixture is smooth, creamy, and light yellow (4-5 minutes). This raises the brownies and makes them fluffier. If you don’t have an electric mixer, you can achieve the same result by wishing for approximately 8 minutes.

2. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then stir in the chocolate powder. 

3. Preheat the oven to 160°C (320ºF). 

4. Combine together the two mixtures into the mixing bowl. 

5. Mix flour and optional ingredients until the are fully incorporated.

6. In a 22×33 cm pan, place parchment paper and pour in the mixture.

7. Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Insert a toothpick or a knife into the center of the tray; It should come out clean of crumbs or dough. 

8. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack. 

9. Cut into square pieces with a very sharp knife.

Enjoy!


Alternatives
• For a rich chocolate flavor, replace the nuts with chocolate chips or combine the two.
• Use dried fruit instead of nuts.
• Before baking, sprinkle with desired toppings (for example, sprinkles, mini marshmallows, shredded coconut or sprinkle flakes of sea salt).
• Orange, strawberry, or mint extract can be used in instead of vanilla extract.

Storage
Store in an air tight container for 3-4 days at room temperature or for 3 months in the freezer.

Serving
• Serve with vanilla ice cream or a glass of milk or whipped cream and berries.
• A layer of frosting can be appreciated (for example, vanilla, cheese, buttercream, coffee, chocolate) or hot fudge sauce!

I have tried many recipes for homemade play dough. Most of them didn’t work out for me very well. Some were hard to knead, others were lumpy, others were a bit of fuss to make. I ended up with this recipe is that makes a nice elastic and easy to play dough, that lasts a long time.

               

This play dough is also a successful party favor for young children. Simply store in plastic bags or jars, with plastic cookie cutters if you wish, and you’ll have a fantastic gift.

To personalize the gift, print a themed gift tag or thank you tag. DIYpartycreations.com offers a wide range of printable party decorations you may use. 

Glitter could also be added to your play dough, I’m not a big fan of its mess! If you want to do so, add glitter gradually to a colored piece of play dough. Knead in the glitter until it is completely incorporated. 

Scented play dough is not recommended for small children because they may become confused and eat the dough.

Ingredients
1. 20 gr cream of tartar
2. 250 gr table salt
3. 500 gr all-purpose flour
4. 35 gr vegetable oil (3 tablespoons)
5. 500 gr boiling water
6. food coloring (prefer gel food colorings for vibrant colors)

Optional
cooking gloves, plastic food bags

 

Tip before you start
If you don’t want to stain your hands with food coloring,
use cooking gloves
or knead the dough with the food coloring
inside a plastic food bag. 

 

Procedure
1. In a mixing bowl, combine the cream of tartar, the salt, and the flour.
2. Stir in the vegetable oil and boiling water with a large spoon until the mixture is not too hot to touch with your hands.
3. Knead with your fingers until it forms a smooth dough once it has cooled and thickened slightly.
4. Divide the dough into smaller pieces to make as many different colors as you want.
5. Gradually add food coloring to each piece and knead until the desired brightness and tone is achieved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Storage
Make sure your play dough has completely cooled before storing. If not, it will become moist and mold will develop very quickly.
To make your play dough last longer, store it in airtight containers or ziplock plastic bags. 

Disclaimer
This play dough is strictly for entertainment purposes. It should not be consumed by children or pets!

The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, Easter is almost here. There is nothing more exciting than organizing an egg hunt or a treasure hunt for parents, children or even for both! 

It could take place anywhere. It can be in a single room, a house, a garden, a park, a school or even an entire village! 

Plan ahead and set a date. Make it appear to be a big event or better yet, make it one. Make your Easter baskets, stock up on chocolate eggs and candy. Locate the hunting area and the hiding spots you intend to use. Write the treasure hunt clues. Decorate! Make it appear as if there is a party going on!

Evaluating the group of people involved is very helpful in deciding how many hiding places you may need, how well the eggs should be hidden and the size of the hunting area.

To make things easier for you, I’ve created printable basket and egg templates that you can print for free. Print the pages as many times necessary. Simply fill out the form below and you will receive an e-mail with a link to download the printable file containing both pages. Here’s a link to a video showing how to make the basket.

If you want to take the event to the next level, click on the following links to find more printable easter themed templates to decorate your hunting area:

Floral Easter Eggs

 

How to Organize an Easter Egg Hunt

1. Print a basket for each player. 

2. Cut the paper eggs out. You will need 10-20 per person. If you want the hunt to last longer, use more. Along with the paper eggs you could use real boiled eggs, chocolate eggs, plastic eggs filled with candy, jelly beans or any other candy. You could also include a well-hidden golden egg with a special prize. 

3. Choose a hunting location and a large number of safe hiding places. 

4. Set the date and invite your players.

5. Hide the eggs the day of the event and keep track of where you put them.

6. If the players are not of the same age, divide them into teams to ensure fairness. 

7. Set rules such as, the winner being the person who finds the most eggs or the golden egg or the first person to get 10 eggs or the person who finds the most eggs within a certain time limit, or who finds eggs of a specific color.

8. Assist children who are having trouble finding eggs. They’re all supposed to have a good time.

 

How to Organize an Easter Egg Treasure Hunt

1. Make clues. The clues could be pictures, puzzles, riddles, rymes with missing words and anything else you can think could be used as clues. If you search the term “treasure hunt clues” on the internet, you will find lots of clues and riddles for an indoor or outdoor treasure hunt.

2. Cut out the paper eggs. 

3. Decide where the hunting area will be and the route with its hiding places.

4. Write the clues on the white side of the printed eggs and number them so that the hunters don’t miss any.

5. With each hidden clue, you could include a small prize, one for each hunter, or something they could share. The final clue always has the larger prize; after all, it’s the treasure!

6. Set the date and invite the hunters.

7. On the day of the event, keep the first clue and hide the rest without missing a step, as well as the treasure!

8. The hunters need to stay in a group and move all together. Set rules if necessary.

9. Give the first clue to the youngest player… and let the hunt begin!

Have a great time!!!

    These extremely energetic canines are friendly, intelligent, playful, and sensitive. They originally came from the Dalmatia region at the south of Croatia in Europe. Originally, this breed was used as a hunting or carriage dog.

    Disney’s animated film “101 Dalmatians” was based on Dodie Smith’s novel “The Hundred and One Dalmatians”. Dodie Smith was inspired after a friend said to her: “Those dogs would make a lovely fur coat” after observing her dogs. Smith once owned nine Dalmatians, and Pongo (the protagonist dog in the film) was named after one of them.

    Dalmatians are also known as “firehouse dogs” and can be seen riding on fire trucks. They have strong guarding instincts and are capable of defending fire stations and their equipment! Dalmatians have taken on the unofficial role of firehouse mascots. On PAW Patrol, Marshall is a Dalmatian firefighter pup!

    Dalmatians become very popular whenever a film is released but because they are so highly energetic, few people can keep up with them and their popularity as a pet fades quickly. On the other hand, children have enjoyed drawings of them in their bedrooms, as party themes, on clothing, stuffed animals and other items for more than 60 years.

    DIY party creations has come up with a cute Dalmatian Dog party theme for you. Many templates to print, create and decorate your event can be found here. May your party be inspired by these active and lovable dogs, and have a wonderful time!

    Finally, before promising your child a Dalmatian, consider its size (they are big), hyperactivity and strength. They shouldn’t really be left alone with small children!  Despite their intelligence, they require extensive training in order to be controlled. While these spotted dogs might not be the best choice for a family dog, they are absolutely adorable! 

    How about a riddle: What do cheetahs, dalmatians, jaguars, leopards, deer and appaloosas have in common?
    Answer: stops (read backwards)

    I’ve always assumed that the paisley pattern was desiged for clothing by popular fashion companies. That is only partially correct.  

    It’s originally Persian and it’s called Boteh. This teardrop shape motif used on textiles goes back to the 11th century, perhaps earlier. It is also very common in India, Azerbaijan, Turkey and other countries in the area. It made its way to Scotland from the Kashmir area and it is said to have been a motif which was used by the elite and was woven in silk to be used for clothing. 

    In the 18th century it became quite popular in Europe. Paisley, a Scottish town near Glasgow, inspired the English name for this design. At the time, Paisley was a major center for the weaving industry. In the 1960s sheep’s wool was used to mass-produce imitations of these original patterns. 

    In the summer of 1967 this design became associated with the psychedelic aesthetic/Bohemian style and was produced for the fashion industry, as well as wallpapers and fabrics.

    In English-speaking countries, this pattern is still used for men’s ties, scarves and vests. This pattern is still popular in Iran and many Asian countries for a range of clothing and textiles.

    Finding information and then designing my own paisley pattern for my e-shop products was so exciting and inspiring! Take a look at the templates here. Paisley patterns will always be fashionable and their colors will be adjusted to match the fashion of the season. Decorating a party with a paisley design motif definitely adds class and excitement!

    My name is Artemis, I was born in Paisley, Scotland and I live in Greece with my family in a friendly neighborhood south of Athens.

    I have been working as a freelance graphic designer for more than 20 years for various companies and on many different types of creative projects, such as logos, stationary, books, brochures, posters, and many more.

    About 10 years ago I had an idea to create a do-it-yourself website for those who wish to decorate a party from the comfort of their own home. Party decorations for all ages and for all occasions!

    I had put it aside for a while until… my daughter asked for a party theme I could not find, so here I am, creating templates and themes, making videos, photo shooting and bringing them together to create DIYpartycreations.com!

    I’d also like to introduce you to the people that helped me with my first steps. My husband, Christos, with his valuable guidance and research, Mirto’s excellent programming skills who made this project come together and last but not least, my daughter Alexandra, who is my strictest judge, greatest critic and most fanatic supporter! All contributed to the success of this project.

    I’m excited to share my organizing tips, templates, games, recipes, crafts and more that I’ve used successfully at events and parties for many years.

    If you like organizing or doing things from scratch, you are at the right place! I’ll try to make it as simple as possible for everyone and share things I’ve tried firsthand.

    I hope to help you plan beautiful events with as little stress as possible, on a budget you can afford, and so that your guests can enjoy and appreciate everything you’ve planned for them with your own personal touch!

    Please let me know what you think, and send me pictures of your accomplishments!

    Create memorable events and have fun doing it…

    Preparation: 30 minutes
    Total Baking Time: 30 minutes
    Amount: about 40 cookies

    A crunchy cookie recipe, with a wonderful butter-cinnamon taste, easy to make. Good choice to to accompany your coffee, tea or a children’s party. I originally cooked them for a small gathering and they were a big hit. On an other occasion I also made them for school gifts. They didn’t make it to the second break! For each occasion, I created a completely different, simple gift packaging with the help of the Crown Thank you Tag and the Paisley Pattern Gift Tags as well as a small transparent plastic food bags 8,3X19,8 cm. More name tags and thank you tags can be found at DIYpartycreations.com in a variety of themes.

    Make these cookies with your kids; they’re quite easy to make. They can use a hand whisker instead of the electric mixer if they don’t like the noise. Try the colored sugar as well, kids enjoy shaking the jar and watching the sugar change color. It is great fun!

    Ingredients

    200 gr all-purpose flour
    120 gr unsalted butter, room temperature
    70 gr sugar
    90 gr brown sugar
    1 large egg
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
    1 pinch of salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Optionally
    Brown or colored sugar can be used to decorate, if desired.

    Putting it all together

    1. Combine the butter, both sugars, and egg in a large mixing bowl and lightly whisk to combine. 

    2. Stir in the baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla extract. 

    3. Add all of the flour at once or gradually, as desired, and mix until completely absorbed. 

    4. Cover your baking tray with parchment paper, shape the dough into balls, and set them on the baking sheet at a distance since they spread. If the dough sticks to our hands, wet them slightly and form balls.

    5. Press a little and, if you like, sprinkle with brown or colored sugar. If you put too much sugar, the cookies may become very sweet!

    6. Bake at 180°C, for 10-15 minutes, depending on the size, or until slightly browned.

    Keep them in an air tight container for about 4-5 days (they could stay longer, but that’s how long we had them) or freeze them for a few months, although they may loose their crunchiness, but not their flavor!

    Make a lovely decoration to go with your cookies when they’re served. More options can be found at DIYpartycreations.com with a variety of templates and themes.

    2. Add a small amount of any food coloring and shake the jar to mix the color evenly. If necessary, add another color and repeat. 

    3. If you used any liquid food coloring, spread the colored sugar on a tray to dry. Put it back in your jar when it’s dry, and you’re done!
