Homemade Fresh Cranberry Juice in 20 Minutes!

They can help prevent urinary tract infections and some people even use it for type 2 diabetes, chronic fatigue, to prevent blood clots. Cranberries are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C, and salicylic acid. You can see […]

Edible Halloween Craft – Bloody Eyeballs [No Artificial Coloring]

Why is it that every holiday includes foods that are dyed with artificial ingredients. I know, it’s fun to eat food that matches your favorite holiday, but I really don’t want to add artificial food coloring to my food. Thankfully, this edible Halloween craft – bloody eyeballs – has no artificial coloring at all. This post […]

Baked Eggs in Portobello Mushroom Caps

I’m almost past the stage where I need to worry about back to school. I admit that after years of backpacks, crayons and stacks of forms to fill out, I’m almost ready for it.

Sweet Corn Salsa Recipe with Black Beans

How to Be Active in the Winter | Green Smoothie Without Kale

I’m going to be completely upfront with you here. I hate winter. In theory, I love the snow because it’s crisp and clean and pretty. In reality, I hate it.

Gingerbread Latte Recipe | Holiday Coffee Drink

I felt the magic of SAM with Poise® Microliners as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #LifesLittleLeaks Christmas means stress. OK it shouldn’t mean stress. It should mean candy canes and Christmas cookies and Santa and happy children singing Christmas carols. But it doesn’t. What it really means is working 12 hours a day, […]

Meatballs without Breadcrumbs Gluten Free & Paleo

I absolutely love meatballs.  They are one of my favorite main dishes. I enjoy eating them alone or in a recipe.  Spaghetti and Meatballs and Meatball Subs are two favorite dishes from my childhood.
