Candy Cane Silk Steamers

Holiday Candy Cane Silk Steamer made with Silk Cashewmilk from foodiewithfamily.com #SilkCashew

Mega Vanilla Syrup and Homemade Cream Soda from foodiewithfamily.com

I love fizzy drinks madly. Sometimes it’s the difference between a good mood and a bad mood. It’s hard to be cranky when you have a bubbly beverage in hand! My kids have inherited this love of all waters sparkling. We are major fans of our SodaStream Play Machine. We had an older, well-loved SodaStream…
