Hey guys! It’s been a while, it’s Rebecca from Sugar & Soul which was formerly Living Better Together. It’s been a busy few weeks, as you can see I rebranded my blog and I also left my day job to pursue blogging full time. It’s been a very exciting/scary/stressful/rewarding few weeks, but I think I’m finally finding a rythym in self employment. Yay!

The last time I was here we were soaking up the last few days of summer and making this super cute Meringue Ice Cream Cones and somehow in what seems like the blink of an eye, we’re getting ready for Halloween. Crazy, right?

Will Cocoa Powder Go Bad?

Cocoa powder doesn’t spoil for a very long time.

It will eventually lose its rich flavor and will no longer flavor your baked goods in quite the same way.

When properly stored, unopened cocoa powder will have a shelf life of two to three years past the printed expiration date.

Will Hot Cocoa Help You Sleep?

A glass of warm milk will actually make you sleep better.

Hot chocolate doesn’t work as well as milk.

Chocolate milk contains caffeine, which can interfere with sleep.

How Long Can You Keep Whipped Cream?

Homemade whipped cream will last 2-3 days in the refrigerator.

It can be frozen for 2-3 months.

    • Oh good! Isn’t it too cute?! If we didn’t have a good 300 trick-or-treaters we would do it too. Instead just our good friends get them.
