Coconut Ginger Chicken

Wow, this recipe is DEEEELICIOUS!!  I didn’t read the whole thing before making it, so I was a little discouraged that I had to cook a little before putting everything in the crockpot (I’m lazy like that).  BUT you cook it in the insert on the burner!  I didn’t do that but next time I … Continue reading

Updated Reviews

I’ll start with the Orange-Vinegar cleaner. In my original review, I stated that it didn’t smell very orangey, the vinegar was definitely the stronger smell.  I’ve made a couple more batches since then.  The smell is sweeter but not orangey.  Not like the commercial orange cleaners.  I expected this to smell like fresh oranges.  The … Continue reading

Refrigerator Oatmeal

I’ve been making this for about 3 weeks for Shabbat morning.  I wasn’t sure I’d like cold oatmeal so I put off trying this.  ALL the reviews I read were great, so I finally gave in & tried it.  Even my girls thought “refrigerator oatmeal” sounded kinda gross.  I used this recipe, which I found … Continue reading

Peaches & Cream Muffins

I cut the sugar in half for most recipes.  But since I didn’t want to mess this one up, I only cut back slightly, maybe a tablespoon.  The description says they’re “not too sweet”, so I was already happy about … Continue reading

Homemade Laundry Detergent

I had been wanting to make my own laundry detergent for a very long time.  Years.  I thought it would be too time consuming, too much work, so I put it off.  I started wanting to make it again & then read a lot of complaints about having to “cook” the soap, so I put … Continue reading

Homemade Baking Mix

I found this recipe for a Bisquik~like baking mix on Pinterest.  I love how easy Biquik is to use but I know it’s not very nutritious & has preservatives in it. I tried this recipe the other day & made scones/biscuits with it.  They were really good!  Mucho better than Bisquik!!  Today, I made blueberry … Continue reading

Orange-Vinegar Cleaner

I found this cleaner recipe on Pinterest.  You fill a quart jar with orange peels, then pour white vinegar in, seal & let sit for 10 days.  I used a pint jar because that’s all I had. The original pinner says it smells great.  The first time I used mine, it smelled more like vinegar … Continue reading
