Homemade Chocolate Sauce


I'm not a fan of store bought chocolate sauce-it's much too sweet for my taste buds. So, when I heard a blogger sharing about homemade chocolate sauce, I thought why not? This recipe was SUPER easy...as in, done in about five minutes tops. It's very rich, and intense with flavor. If you like it sweet, you will probably want to add more sugar. ;-)

Recipe:
1 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Baking Cocoa Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Vanilla

In small sauce pan, bring water, sugar, cocoa, and salt to boil. Reduce to simmer and stir for 3 minutes. Take off the burner and add vanilla. It will thicken the longer you leave it sitting, but I used it right away. YUM.

Have you made chocolate sauce before?

My Work At Home {New} Job Story


I haven't posted in a couple of weeks for two reasons:

1) I'm busy getting ready for a baby AND 2) I started a NEW job!



Yes, it was a bit crazy of me to jump out on a limb this late into my pregnancy. But, I knew working from home and having some extra cash on hand would be an answer to prayer. So, what did I do?

Signed up as a Jamberry Consultant!

The first two weeks were some of the hardest in my life. I cried a LOT. I worked a LOT. But, slowly orders started coming in, online parties were booked, and I was seeing money being deposited in my bank account.

A little over 6 weeks later, and it has quickly become a huge blessing in our life. About 90% of the work is done entirely online and that includes orders! The only time I have to leave the house is to mail samples or host an "in home" party.

Jamberry is still so new that the business is growing like wildfire. Not to mention women love pretty nails & shopping....so Jamberry is an excellent opportunity!

I've also met new friends, gained confidence, and learned a lot more about the importance of marketing.

If you are interested in starting your own venture with Jamberry, please feel free to e-mail me! I'd love to share more with you and point you in the right direction. The team I work with is awesome, supportive, and have tons of resources for new folks. :)
