DIY Gummy Bears

We have been wanting to make gummy bears for a long time. Alhamdulilah a few simple ingredients and gummy bear molds, we were able to make our own gummy bears. A quick and easy way to have gummy bears, and you can add your own vitamins too.

They were delicious and easy to make
1 cup of fruit juice (we used 100% cherry and also used lemon juice too)
8 tsps beef gelatin  ( The Better Kosher Gelatin  )
2 tbs honey (I only used one tbs and was fine with how it tasted, if you do not want to use honey (because you may not want to warm it) you can also use stevia, and we still liked how it turned out too with the stevia)
It is up to you to add the vitamin of your choice.. I added probiotics (you do not have to use it)

It is totally easy mashaAllah you basically lightly warm ingredients together until the gelatin dissolves... at the end add vitamins or probiotic (I waited until it was cool enough, to add the probiotics, you do not want the heat to kill them, so I really pushed the limit in waiting until it was cool enough to add) and then quickly use your droppers and put the mix in the gummy bear molds, and then put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes inshaAllah. It was such a hit with the children and really took no time to make mashaAllah!

It is great because you can also mix it up, mix different juices together and come up with pretty awesome combinations.

InshaAllah, I think we will make these more often. Pretty simple and delicious. I think the one tbs of honey was sufficient enough for sweetness in my opinion and the children did not think it was too sweet or too tart mashaAllah.

Gummy bear molds, we purchased them on Amazon mashaAllah and it was just enough for the recipe. There were three in the pack mashaAllah with droppers.

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?

1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

Praying For Your Husband

Good morning world,

This morning I felt inspired to write a few words, in prayers that it will benefit you all out there. One of the best things we can do for our spouse is to pray for them.

What is so awesome about prayer, is that God understands what we are saying, knows what we want to say, and no matter if its aloud or deep within our heart... He knows, He understands and He hears us.

Even as a widow, one of the things I continuously do, is pray for my late husband (rahimahullah)


Pray for God's guidance, husbands have a lot of decisions to make. Their role as the leader of the home is such an important role, that God's guidance is for sure needed. When praying for your husband, pray that God guides his decisions, his steps. As wives, one of your duties is to encourage him to pray too, gently remind him that with God, there is success. Every move we make, should be in a direction God is pleased with.

Pray for their health and safety- the world today is not the easies…
