Separate a 1/4 of the white chocolate chips out. Put both portions into microwave safe bowls and heat until melted. Color the smaller portion with pink food coloring. Add your melted chocolate into a plastic baggie. Cut the corner off for piping.

Lay out a separate piece of wax paper and pipe the shape of the bunny feet with the white chocolate. Let it dry and then follow with the pink colored chocolate to create the pads of the feet.

Travel Sized

Duplicate your most used and favorite on-hand items from your at home kit to condense into a travel friendly size. Use a small plastic container for a clear view at the contents inside as well as a spill-free option. We recommend having band-aids, pain reliever, and antibiotic ointment as a starting point. It also helps to take the items out of their packaging to make room for what you really need.

Car Friendly

Be sure to have a kit ready for any car emergency. A pre-made kit from Top Care® will fit perfectly in your glove-box or center console. Whether it’s you who is hurt in an accident, or witnessing one and being able to offer your assistance, a First Aid kit is a must for any mode of transportation.

Additional Notes:

  • Include any personal items like emergency numbers and medications your doctor may suggest.
  • Check your kit frequently, and go through expiration dates and be sure to replace any out-of-date supplies.

Thinking ahead is the best way to be prepared. There’s no time like the present to put together your first aid kit!

Artichoke heart

Artichokes – 

Artichokes are actually flowers that have not bloomed yet, and they are extremely healthy for you! But how does one tackle this vegetable? First, make sure you buy a good one. You want the leaves of the vegetable to be closed, and when squeezed, they should squeak- both of these indicate a fresh artichoke. Once you have your artichoke, start by cutting off the tops of the leaves, then slice off about an inch from the top. Thoroughly rinse the artichoke. You can steam, grill, stuff, bake, you name it – whatever you want, just make sure to add this tasty and fun vegetable into your life!

Asparagus

Asparagus – 

Asparagus get a lot of talk – some of it good and some of it bad. For those of us who love asparagus, we know that Spring time means fresh asparagus time!

There are different stalk thicknesses you need to choose from – thin/pencil size works best for sautéing and steaming, while the thicker stalks are easier to handle when grilling, roasting and baking.

Broccoli

Broccoli –

Broccoli, the vegetable we all used to pretend were little trees when we were younger. Now we start to appreciate how good for our bodies broccoli is! Choose broccoli with bright green, tightly packed florets. In addition to eating raw alone or in salads, broccoli is also really yummy when cooked! Coat your broccoli with olive oil and your favorite seasonings, sprinkle with some lemon juice and Parmesan cheese and then bake.

Radish

Radishes – 

Radishes are a very healthy root vegetable. When choosing your radishes from the store start with the leaves, you want them to look fresh and be bright green. You want the radish bulb to be hard and smooth. Before we talk about the bulb of the radish, let’s talk about the radish leaves. The greens are really tasty sautéed in olive oil with garlic and salt and pepper. They can also be added to soups or they can be eaten raw too! The radish bulb can also be eaten raw or cooked too! Butter and salt are a yummy way to enjoy raw radishes. Roasted radishes is also a great way to enjoy them – cut them in half, add onions, and other seasonings and cook until a fork goes in easily.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms – 

Mushrooms definitely have a place on many people’s favorite pizzas, they can also be used in many different ways. When picking mushrooms from the store you want large, firm mushrooms. Slice the mushrooms in half and sautée them with some olive oil, garlic and parsley! Make sure you don’t overcrowd the mushrooms, they should be in a single layer. Try this Butternut Noodles with Creamy Bacon Sauce recipe with mushrooms on top!
