Radical Recipes: Re-creating the Starbucks Vanilla Bean Frappuccino

Hey Guys, it’s Morgan! Welcome back to my blog! Today on Radical Recipes we are re-creating the Vanilla Bean Frappuccino from Starbucks! I love the Frappuccinos from Starbucks. I am actually pretty much obsessed with them. But my favorite has to be the vanilla bean. It was the first one I ever tried and I still love it to this day. So, I thought re-creating it would be really fun.

This is my original recipe. If you have trouble with hard recipes don’t sweat it, this one is easy-mode. I have no idea what is in a real Frappuccino so this is just my best guess and I think it tastes pretty good.

So, let’s get started!

What you’ll need:                                                        

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups ice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • whipped cream (optional)

                                                                   Instructions:

Take all ingredients (except the whipped cream) and put them in a blender. Once you can’t see the ice anymore, blend for 30 more seconds. Then take it off the blender. Pour into a cup and add the whipped cream to the top (if you like) then you are done!

I hope you enjoyed this recipe and remember to tell me in the comments what your favorite Starbucks Frappuccino flavor is.

I hope to see you back here on Morgan’s Marvelous Ideas!

Bodacious Books: Ranking Harry Potter Books 

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Today on Bodacious Books we are ranking the Harry Potter books! I picked this for today because last time I did a post (which was a quiz on what house you would be assigned to at Hogwarts) and I got lots of comments and likes so I decided to rank the magical books! I’m ranking the books from my least to most favorite. I hope you enjoy this post and without further ado, let’s get started! (Spoiler alert, this post has some details about the books so if you haven’t read them all you might want to skip this post.)

                                             # 7 – Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone


This book just wasn’t as good as all of the other books. I feel kind of bad putting the first book last but it just doesn’t reach up to how good the others were.

                                    #6 Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix

      

This book was pretty amazing and a big part of the series but I feel like there is less adventure than the rest of them had. Plus, I am still upset that Sirius Black had to die. Arthur Weasley was J.K. Rowling’s first choice to kill but then, she decided on Sirius Black. SO. NOT. COOL.

                                       # 5 Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince

        

This book was really good with mystery and suspense with making you try to figure out who the Half-Blood Prince is but, there is pretty much no action till the last few chapters. Plus, I hate, hate, hated the first few chapters. They made me dread reading it! I wasn’t too interested in hearing about random Ministry of Magic problems. But the end made up for drop dead boring beginning.

                           #4 Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban 


I. Love. This. Book!! This book was perfect for me! I love mysteries and this book had tons! It also had lots of action so I really, really like this book! But it just still isn’t my favorite.

                                      #3 Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire


This book was amazing with the action put into it and I loved the scary (but interesting) ending. I think it really starts up the whole prophecy part of Harry Potter that I love. Plus, Harry starts to realize what the future holds for him.

                              #2 Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets

This book was really, really good. I love all the new things that occur in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts and I love all the mystery and suspense in this book. I love how you really have to figure out who opened The Chamber of Secrets and it was really unexpected when you found out (spoiler alert) that Ginny was the culprit (Not on purpose of course).

                                   #1 Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows 


I loved this book ending. It had tons of action and mystery which I love!! Plus it is really addictive and I got caught into this book very easily and finished it in a week. But really this book was amazing! I love how you figure out more about horcruxes and that Harry is one! It had everything I have ever wanted in a book. This book is one amazing way to end the Harry Potter series.

Thank you for reading this post about ranking Harry Potter books and I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog. Do you agree with my #1 pick? Tell me in the comments which Harry Potter book is your favorite and if you like my Harry Potter section or not. I love hearing from you guys and getting your opinions and it really makes my day.

Morgan’s Craft Corner: DIY Page Markers

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Welcome back to my blog!  Today I will be showing you how to make DIY page markers. So, if you like to read ( like me ) you can just slip them right on to the corner of the page you’re on to save your page. Plus they work better than bookmarks because they don’t slip out of your book when you close them. So, let’s get started! The things you need are:

  • A piece of paper ( The color is your choice )
  • markers
  • Scissors

First cut your piece of paper into a square. Then fold it into a triangle. After you fold it into a triangle, take the top corner and fold it down to the bottom of the triangle. Then, take the two remaining corners and fold them under the paper. To customize, you can use the markers and draw whoever you want on them like Harry Potter or Luke Skywalker.

I hope you liked this tutorial and if you have any suggestions for My Craft Corner, email me and will get started with your idea right away! Signed, Morgan.

Radical Recipes: 5 Minute Ice Cream in a Bag

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Welcome back to my blog! Today we will be making ice cream in a bag! This recipe I got from Pinterest but you can find other recipes online too. The things you will need are: 

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup salt 
  • 4 cups ice
  • 1 gallon bag
  • 1 quart bag ( I used a sandwich bag)

In the gallon sized bag, put in the ice and salt. Next, in the quart bag put in the milk, sugar and vanilla extract. Then, place the little bag inside the big bag and shake until the ice has melted. Take the little bag out and there you have it! Ice cream! If it is not as cold as you want it, you could fill another bag with ice and salt and place the ice cream bag in again. 

    This may seem like one of those things that wouldn’t work, but, to my surprise it did work, so that was pretty impressive to me. Plus it isn’t bad tasting either. It is actually a delicious recipe and my family loved it. 

    Thank you for reading my post and If you have any other suggestions for Radical Recipes,  email me and I will start on that idea right away! Signed, Morgan

    Recipe Review: Marvelous Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Hey guys, it’s Morgan! I’m back with a new recipe today on how to make mint chocolate chip cookies! I got this recipe from my favorite YouTube channel ever, Nerdy Nummies! I just discovered Rosanna Pansino’s channel a week ago, but I love all of her recipes and have already tried a few myself. Remember to check out her new cookbook,The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook ! I just bought it and I love baking and science, so it’s the perfect book for me!

    So let’s get started!! The things you will need to make a mint chocolate chip cookies will be:

    • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup butter (= 2 sticks)
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
    • 5 oz mint chocolate candy (Andes)
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tsp peppermint extract
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp salt
    • light green food coloringcookie

    Now here’s how you make it: First on a cutting board chop up your mint candies and set aside in a bowl. Next in a medium-sized mixing bowl whisk together your dry ingredients which are the flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk until well combined. Set that bowl aside. Next in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer we will cream the butter and both sugars. My preference is to put the butter in the microwave for 10 seconds to make it easier to mix the butter but, you can do whatever makes you happy. Once the butter mixture is creamed, add one egg then mix it up, then add another egg and mix it up. Don’t forget to scrape down the sides in between each mix. Next, add both extracts into the butter mixture and mix until smooth. Once the extracts are in then add a few drops of the green food coloring. Mix until the mixture is completely green. Now it is time to add our dry ingredients into our butter mixture. Add all of the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until all of the dry ingredients are mixed. Now it is time to fold in our mint candies. Pour in the mint candies and fold with a rubber spatula until well combined. Finally, it is time to bake. Grease a cookie sheet then, ball up a few cookie dough circles on to the sheet. Then, bake on 350 degrees F for around eight minutes.

    So here’s how the cookies turned out:  This recipe made about two dozen cookes. I would give them a five out of 5 stars because they actually taste like mint chocolate chip ice cream! My whole family loved them and I think they taste really good. The texture is perfect for a cookie and they smell soooo good!!

    Thank you for checking out my blog and If you would like me to try a recipe for you, then email me and will start baking right away!

    Morgan’s Week of Valentine’s Day Fun Smart Science: Creating Some Great Chemistry for Valentine’s Day

    Hi guys! Today on Smart Science we are making CO2 ( a.k.a. carbon dioxide ). So here are the things you need :

    • Baking Soda
    • Vinegar
    • A bowl

    co2

    But first, here are some answers to some questions you might have about carbon dioxide:

    What is carbon dioxide?

    Carbon dioxide is a gas with no color and with a small odor. It makes up .03 percent of our air. To read more about CO2 visit this link.

    Is carbon dioxide found in any common items?

    Yes! It’s actually what makes your soda or seltzer bubbly. Carbon dioxide is forced into the soda or seltzer using pressure and it dissolves. But later it turns back into a gas and becomes the bubbles that make your drink fizz.

    Now let’s get back to talking about how to make CO2:

    Step 1: First, Fill the bowl a quarter of the way up with baking soda. Next add a bit of vinegar until…it bubbles up! Those bubbles are your CO2!

    Why does this happen? Well…I can tell you! In short, it is a chemical reaction because baking soda is a base and vinegar is an acid, so when you combine them they react. (If you want to learn more about acids and bases visit this link.)

    Thank you for reading my post on carbon dioxide! If you have any science experiments you would like me to try, email me and I will start experimenting right away!

    Stay tuned for day 3 of my Valentine’s Day week!

    Morgan’s Week of Valentine’s Day Fun Book Review: Macarons at Midnight

    Hi Guys! Today I will be reviewing a book by: Suzanne Nelson, “Macarons at Midnight.” I would give this book a five out of 5 stars because this book is pretty amazing! It is a perfect book for Valentine’s Day, plus it’s a fun and crazy book that will make you want to keep reading.

    But that’s not all, this book is part of the “Wish” series. Suzanne Nelson doesn’t write all the books in this series. There are different authors for different books, which I think is pretty cool.

    Now back to “Macarons at Midnight.” The book is about a girl named Lise Santos, who one night, stumbles into a bakery during a midnight taste test. She sits down and she meets the guy of her dreams. Once she has to go, she never got to ask him his name. She tries to find out who he is, but once she finds out, she doesn’t get along with him as well as the night at the bakery. She started getting really confused. Wasn’t this supposed to be her happily ever after? This book is a lot like Cinderella, but without the shoe. If you want to find out what happens you should really try reading this book.

    I hope you liked my Valentine’s Day book review and If you would like me to review a book, then send me an email and will get reading right away! Stay tuned for tomorrow because it is day 2 of my Valentine’s Day week!
