Raincoast Books – Guilt-Free Nice Cream!

Ice Cream. Guilty pleasure or sweet treat? In this house, there’s never any guilt! Haha! That could be a problem, hey? We do restrict the amount we eat, as we believe that “everything in moderation” is a better rule to follow than “if it tastes good, spit it out!” Life’s too short to not enjoy […]

Lamb’s Soapworks! ~Giveaway!

“Because even legends have to lather.” It made me grin when I read that. It is true, after all, it doesn’t matter who you are, you need to lather up and get clean (at least we sure *hope* you do!). Who are these legends and why are we lathering? Well, I’m not sure who the […]

The more I read, the more I learn, the more I find out that the traditional way of cooking, which included plenty of fermented foods, is the better way for our bodies!

Raincoast Books – The Pie Project!

I have a confession to make. I have never made a pie. Not in all my years! The only pies my Mom made pumpkin pies. My poor Dad only got his pie fix once a year! Haha! Needless to say, since pies weren’t a frequent item around home, it’s never been something that I’ve aspired […]

Conair Titanium 390 Haircutting & Grooming Kit!

Shortly after I got married, I learned how to cut my husband’s hair. I grew up with my Dad cutting my brothers’ hair and my husband grew up with his Mom cutting his Dad’s hair, so home haircuts really were the norm for us! And given that haircuts can be a pricey event, it seemed […]
