Cinnamon Honey Butter for Your Honey Recipe

Best cure to butter somebody up!

(Featured on my newsletter today!  Subscribe here if you'd like...that would be swell!)

Gosh. I had no idea that something so sweet would flood my memory with the time I almost choked to death on toast and peanut butter. My Father saved my life (literally) by performing the ‘Heimlich Maneuver’ on me. I can vouch for this method. Y’all! It works! I ‘m here today (Thanks Dad) to give you a comforting September recipe. But I must confess. To this day, eating peanut butter or the thought of eating it gives me full blown anxiety. (My Daughters eat heaping spoonfuls of smooth PB straight from the jar and I can’t even watch or be in the same room while they slurp it up.)

Confession: I prefer crunchy.

I guess it’s this honey butter that reminds me of the day I almost died because who wants to spread a thin veil; similar to gauzy 70s sheer curtains (stained with yellow cigarette smoke - do you recall that look?) of anything onto bread? Hence the breathless experience I had. I was eating rye toast and peanut butter that was as chunky as the Grand Canyon is deep. You gotta go thick people. You have to double ‘schmear’. It’s the best and only way to enjoy it.

This recipe is quick. So when you decide to host a last minute brunch (Yes, they are allowed inside your social bubble. Aren’t they?) you will instantly become the kitchen goddess of your friends’ dreams - or if you have selected a streaming binge as your weekend activity, then this treat is so so so good with a big cup of milky earl grey tea or frothy cappuccino.

Oh. Let it drip off your fingers 

and down your chin.

It is wonderland.

Cinnamon Honey Butter

1 cup butter

1 cup honey

1 cup icing sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon or more to your liking.

Whip well.

Store in an adorable vintage pottery pot or jar.

Will be perfect for 

4 weeks in the fridge

or the weekend on your counter.

Gluten-Free + Vegetarian 

Go thick. Go very thick.

You won’t choke on this. I promise.

You're welcome.

10 Reasons Why You Need A Side-Hustle NOW

Has there ever been a time in your life quite like this with the necessity (urgency) to be extremely wise, aware, self-sufficient, independent and prepared?  Uncertain times call for certain, positive measures.  It is not the time to sit back and watch.  Forget about standing still.  For your current situation and your future one...You need to hustle now. Take action.

A Side-Hustle = Financial Insurance (in uncertain times)

Here are the 10 reasons why you need a side-hustle NOW:

1.  There is NO job security.  

The economy is wobbly to say the least.  If you have a job you need to accept the fact that it is not secure.  Don't take that personally.  Accept it and make sure you have a back-up plan or two.

2. If you have WiFi and a device you can make extra money. (pocket change or a lot)

Who knows if we will go back into lock down, but if you have a connection, you can earn an income. If you are out of the house working, you can earn extra money with your phone or laptop on breaks, during your commute, running errands and even while you're spending time with family and friends. The internet is bursting with possibilities to earn extra money! The world is at your fingertips.

3.  Wages are not growing.  Raises are seldom. Right?

A side-hustle allows you to increase your daily income. You decide how much and how often you get an increase.  A job description dictates what 'the job' is worth.  A side-hustle allows you to determine what 'YOU' are worth.

4. The cost of living keeps going UP UP UP.  But does your paycheck?

Everything.  E V E R Y T H I N G is getting more expensive.  You absolutely need more money.

5. You are worth significantly more per hour than your job pays.

You might earn $15/hour - $50 hour,  but a side-hustle can increase that rate to $30 - $100+.  

6.  You can keep your day job (or night shift) and still succeed with a side-hustle.

You might LOVE your job!  You do not have to quit.  But that extra money is quite nice.  You might hate your current job.  Your side-hustle gives you some cash security should you decide to leap and find another job - it will float you during the 'in between' - until you start your new, better job.

7. A side-hustle is like a real-world business degree. 

You will learn entrepreneurial & leadership skills, gain personal development, meet new people and experience sales & marketing first hand.

8. You can work your side-hustle to suit your own lifestyle.

Setting your own hours is one of the perks to having a side-hustle.  Tuck it into the minutes or hours you have available.  You choose how you spend your time.

9.  You need to cover all your bases.

If there is a shift in the economy or your personal situation, you need to be able to withstand the changes.  A side-hustle offers that buffer and peace of mind.

10.  A Side-Hustle = Financial Insurance

Probably the most important reason is this one.  You have to protect yourself.  Your life is 100% your responsibility and nobody is coming to save you. A side-hustle or two or three;  a part-time income opportunity is waiting for you!

I have MSI:   multiple streams of income.  My creative career and my sales & community building career.  In the future I will add more streams.  5 would be good.

Vegetable Haul: Still Life with Plant Power

I don’t think there’s a vegetable I’ve met that I didn’t like. Although, I haven’t been introduced to a fiddlehead yet. Shocking I know. My social plant bubble probably can’t expand any time soon for taro, okra or kohlrabi. Okra! You squeal. Come on!

Don’t you get butterflies in your stomach and aches in your loins when you see a kitchen pin board filled with over-sized bowls or baskets, placed intentionally on smooth marble counters, showing off waterfalls of fresh produce?

I want bucket loads of fruits and vegetables set out like breathtaking public art in my home. Weekly. And when it gets depleted, I want more.

For me, having this bountiful display is a ‘buzzer’ to eat more plants. The recipes and possibilities are endless. I look at the leaf lettuce and somehow I hear Jamie Oliver saying the word ‘Veg’. You know what I’m talking about.

(This is the still life I painted in class. Circa. 1974)

I’m drawn to vegetable still life art. It stems from my high school art class where my Teacher would haphazardly lay out vegetables on one of her own pajama tops. My heart beats fast just thinking about those 3 hour painting sessions. I’m pretty certain my Teacher left the room by the time I under-painted the cabbage to eat a long lunch, heavy on meat or sponge toffee with a Tab, and never really taught us a thing. But I got an A+. Maybe we all did.

Plant power is awe-inspiring, but better still is the deliciousness of food that grows in soil. My vegetable haul makes me happy. Now I have to decide how to cook it.

NEW Collection of Abstract Paintings "PORT" by Patti Friday


This collection was my way of honoring peoples’ love of the sea. 
During the pandemic of 2020 all access to our beloved 
waterways, cruise ships, beaches and oceans 
were taken away. 
Boating, fishing, swimming and walking near water: 
Being near or on water is therapeutic 
and necessary for humans. 
I expressed this loss with paint.

In 2014—after scouting and research to find the best possible location—Young Living purchased land in British Columbia, Canada, for the Northern Lights Farm. The pristine land remains free of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers, thanks to its relatively untouched nature prior to Young Living’s ownership.

This oil includes the naturally occurring constituents alpha-pinene, camphene, and beta-pinene and is an important ingredient in many products, including Valor, Shutran™, Harmony™, Awaken™, Envision™, Grounding™, R.C.™, Relieve It™, and White Angelica™ essential oil blends.
