Homemade Intensive Organic Night Cream for Face & Neck

I have a lot of people tell me they aren’t creative or crafty in or out of the kitchen. I don’t believe that’s true. I believe that all of us, no matter who we are, have a little bit of art inside us of…

Pie, Glorious Pie & A Few Other Holiday Must Haves

We had other foods on Thanksgiving of course that are my favorites, but I’ll start with the pies. There aren’t many people on the planet who dislike pie. I can’t even fathom such a crazy thing. I absolutely love that we can have food…

Homemade Organic Super Green Powder

Coconut Milk Kefir Smoothie

I have fallen in love with making my own coconut milk kefir and yogurt. I’m addicted. I don’t know why, but it’s extremely satisfying and fun! You can bake with it, put it in smoothies, eat and drink it plain, and it’s extremely good…

Beef Bone Broth

You may remember a post from a few weeks ago where I touted the benefits of bone broth. In that post I used our leftover turkey carcass from Thanksgiving. Since then I’ve used that turkey bone broth in all kinds of dinner dishes and…

Bone Broth For A Healthier You

Herb Cheese Logs

Guess what? You can freeze goat cheese. Who knew? I had no idea. According to the internet, soft cheeses freeze quite well, actually. This opens up all kinds of ideas for different types of goat and sheep’s milk cheeses. This cheese is mild and delicious. Not overly…
