Foreword
Hello everyone. After seeing many great recipes and ideas on
Facebook, I decided to start collecting and saving them for future
reference.
I have, where possible, kept recipes to a single page. If you like the
recipe, give the page a tick (up in the top right corner of the page).
It’ll help you find it next time.
Some of the recipes use imperial measurements, and items from other
countries, so you may need to substitute or trial things for yourself.
I am not the owner of the recipes, tips, and tricks assembled in this
document, nor can I vouch for the usefulness or, quality of the items
found here, so venture forward and trial at your own risk.
Whilst I am not aware of any copyright issues, If you are the

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites
1 box of your favorite brownie mix
1/2- 1- cup peanut butter chips
1/2-1- cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray AND grease 40 mini-muffin cups.
Prepare boxed brownie mix as directed. Spoon batter evenly into mini muffin
cups ( 1/2 to 1 heaping teaspoon). Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is set
and a toothpick inserted into center comes out slightly wet. After brownies
are out of the oven, wait for centers to fall. This will happen upon cooling. If
not then tap the centers with the back of a teaspoon to make a hole for the
peanut butter.
Place peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for
35 seconds then stir. While brownies are still warm spoon about half a
teaspoon of peanut butter into the center of each brownie. Top with semisweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Cool completely in pan. Go
around edge of brownies with a sharp knife and they should pop right out.

TO DIE FOR RICE KRISPY TREATS
Warning: cake batter rice crispy treats. You will probably never
make regular rice crispy treats again.
3 Tbsp. butter 1 (10 oz.)
bag of mini-marshmallows
1/4 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared into a
batter!)
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles
Method: Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add
marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in (dry) cake
mix one spoonful at a time so it’s combined. Stir in cereal and let
set .

Chocolate Eclair Cake!!!
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
4 large eggs
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 large box (5.1 ounces) vanilla instant pudding
3 cups milk
1 8 oz. container cool whip (you won’t use the whole container) or one batch of
homemade whipped cream
chocolate syrup or homemade chocolate sauce
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a 9″X13″ glass baking pan.
Eclair Crust: In a medium saucepan, melt butter in water and bring to a boil. Remove from
heat. Stir in flour. Mix in one egg at a time, mixing completely before adding another egg.
Spread mixture into pan, covering the bottom and sides evenly. *If the sides of your pan
are too greased you won’t be able to get the mixture to stay up the sides so make sure to
just lightly grease.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown (Mine only took 25 minutes.) You may want
to check it occasionally-you don’t want to overcook the crust, it will ruin the cake! Remove
from oven and let cool (don’t touch or push bubbles down).
Filling: Whip cream cheese in a medium bowl. In separate bowl make vanilla pudding.
Make sure pudding is thick before mixing in with cream cheese. Slowly add pudding to
cream cheese, mixing until there are no lumps. Let cool in fridge.When the crust is
completely cooled, pour filling in. Top with layer of cool whip however thick you want it
and serve with chocolate syrup. *If you want to make this even better use homemade
whipped cream.

Banana Pudding Poke Cake
Ingredients:
1 (10 oz.) box yellow cake mix
ingredients needed to make cake (eggs, oil & water)
2 (3.4 oz.) packages instant banana pudding
4 cups milk
1 (8 oz.) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
20 vanilla wafers, crushed
Directions:
Prepare cake mix according to package directions for a 9x13 cake.
Once cake comes out of the oven, allow it to cool for just a couple of minutes.
Then, with a wooden spoon handle or some other similarly-sized object, begin poking holes in the
cake.
You want the holes to be fairly big so that the pudding has plenty of room to get down in there.
Be sure to poke right down to the bottom of the cake.
In a bowl, prepare pudding.
Whisk together instant pudding with 4 cups milk.
Stir until all the lumps are gone.
Let pudding sit for just about 2 minutes so it has just slightly begun to thicken but not fully set, it
should still be easily pourable.
Pour pudding over cake. Being careful to get it into the holes as much as possible.
Spread it all out and using the back of the spoon to gently push pudding down into the holes.
Put the pudding into the fridge to set and cool.
Once your cake has completely cooled, spread on whipped topping.
If you haven't done so already, chop your vanilla wafers up.
Leave some of the pieces big. It's nice to have a bit of a crunch when you eat the cake.
Spread crushed wafers onto the top of the cake. You can do this part right before serving the cake
if you like.
This will ensure the wafers are crunchy when you serve it.
I think this cake gets more delicious over time.
To me, it's even better the next day so it's a great dessert to make ahead of time.
Serve with freshly sliced bananas. Keep refrigerated
ENJOY!!!

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 cup butter, softened
for the cake:
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

vanilla until smooth. Blend in the flour mixture and cream alternately, beginning and

INGREDIENTS
1 package regular Oreo cookies (Not Double Stuff) – about 36 cookies
6 Tablespoon butter, melted
1- 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons cold milk
1- 12 ounce tub Cool Whip, divided
2 – 3.9 ounce packages Chocolate Instant Pudding.
3 1/4 cups cold milk
1 and 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS
1. Begin by crushing 36 Oreo cookies. I used my food processor for this, but you could
also place them in a large ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. When the Oreos
have turned into fine crumbs, you are done.
2. Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in 6 tablespoons melted butter and use a
fork to incorporate the butter into the cookie crumbs. When the butter is distributed,
transfer the mixture to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the
pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you work on the additional layers.
3. Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in 2 Tablespoons of milk,
and sugar, and mix well. Stir in 1 and 1/4 cups Cool Whip. Spread this mixture over the
crust.
4. In a bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 and 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for
several minutes until the pudding starts to thicken. Use a spatula to spread the mixture
over the previous cream cheese layer. Allow the dessert to rest for about 5 minutes so
that the pudding can firm up further.
5. Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips evenly over
the top. Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.

Watermelon Cake
1 large seedless watermelon
2 cans full fat coconut milk (left in fridge for 6 hours or more)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. raw honey
1 cup sliced raw almonds
Seasonal fresh fruit (for topping)
Directions:
TO MAKE THE COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM
1. Make sure to place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours (or
overnight). This will cause the cream to separate from the milk. The cream will be at the
top of the can.
2. Open the can of coconut milk and scrape out the cream into a medium sized bowl. Hint:
I always open the can from the bottom and pour the milk out into a separate container
before scraping out the cream. You can use the saved milk for smoothies and other
recipes.
3. Add the vanilla and raw honey to the mixture. Whip the cream with a hand mixer on
medium speed and work your way up to high speed until the cream is fluffy. Place the
bowl of whipped cream in the fridge until ready to use.
TO MAKE THE TOASTED ALMONDS:
1. Place a medium sized skillet over medium-high heat and allow the pan to get hot.
2. Add the sliced almonds and toss in the pan until they are toasted and turn a light brown
color. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.
TO ASSEMBLE
1. Remove the top and bottom from the watermelon and remove the rind from the middle
section. You should be left with a cake-shaped piece of watermelon. Cut the watermelon
"cake" into the number of wedges/slices you want (I recommend 6-8 slices depending on
the size of the watermelon).
2. Pat the outside of the watermelon dry with paper towels (this is important because it
will help the coconut whipped cream adhere better).
3. Dip the outside edge of each slice into the coconut whipped cream and then into the
toasted almonds, and reassemble the wedges into the cake shape on a serving platter.
Top with more whipped coconut cream and your favorite fresh fruit (I used blackberries,
strawberries and kiwi). Serve or store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
THE MOST DANGEROUS CAKE RECIPE IN THE WORLD
This is very dangerous.....chocolate cake any time of the day.
INGREDIENTS:
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil ..or try real butter...worked very well
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix
thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate
chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts
(high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. Now, you can make this even
more sinful by adding ice cream and whipped cream...your choice!
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake
at any time of the day or night!

Caramel Apple Pie Recipe
Caramel apple dip adds smooth sweetness to this new version of a classic favorite.
Ingredients
1 box refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 cups thinly sliced peeled apples
1/2 cup caramel apple dip
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
Directions
Heat oven to 375°F. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch
glass pie plate. In large bowl, mix granulated sugar, 1/4 cup flour and the cinnamon.
Add apples; toss to coat. Spoon apple mixture into crust- lined plate. In small bowl, mix
2 tablespoons caramel apple dip and the milk; drizzle over apples.
In medium bowl, mix 1 cup flour and the brown sugar. With pastry blender, cut in butter
until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over filling.
To make lattice top, cut second crust into 1/2-inch-wide strips with pastry cutter. Place
half of the strips across filling in pie plate. Weave remaining strips with first strips to
form lattice. Trim ends of strips even with edge of bottom crust. Fold trimmed edge of
bottom crust over ends of strips, forming a high stand-up rim. Seal and flute.
Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes. Drizzle remaining caramel
apple dip over pie. Cool at least 2 hours before serving.

Ingredients:
3 cups very cold rum or vodka, flavored is okay (I put mine in the freezer for a couple
hours)
6 teaspoons plain unflavored gelatin
6 3-oz packages of jell-o, we used grape, berry blue, lime, pineapple, orange, and cherry
1 1/8 cup vanilla yogurt
water
cooking spray
Lightly spray bundt pan with cooking spray, wipe out excess. Place 3/4 cup water in
saucepan, sprinkle one teaspoon unflavored gelatin over it, let sit for a minute or two,
heat on medium-low stirring constantly with whisk until dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add
first package jell-o, whisk in until thoroughly dissolved, about 2 minutes, remove from
heat, stir in 1/2 cup cold alcohol, pour 3/4 cup jell-o mixture into mold, place mold in
refrigerator. After 10-15 minutes place rest of jell-o mixture into bowl, place in refrigerator
5 minutes. Take bowl out, add 3 tablespoons vanilla yogurt and whisk thoroughly, gently
add to bundt pan, place back in refrigerator.
Wash all your utensils and start over with next flavor, as the pan chills more and the
layers get thinner it will go faster to add next layer, if it feels slightly tacky to the touch it
is ready. If it’s not set enough the layers will “bleed” through, it it sits too long the layers
will come apart. When you add the last layer refrigerate at least overnight, with clean
hands pull jell-o away from the edges of the pan, dip almost to top into a container or sink
of warm, not hot, water for 10 seconds, remove and jiggle pan, if it looks like it’s coming
away from the edges it’s ready, if not, dip again for a few seconds. Place serving plate
upside down over top, invert, and voila.

Cream Cheese Cookie Bars
1- 8 ounce brick cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 egg
3 cups chocolate chip cookie dough
Preheat oven to 350°. Using a hand mixer or a stand
mixer, mix the first four ingredients until light and fluffy,
about 2 minutes on med-high speed. Into an 8×8 inch
greased baking dish, evenly press 2 cups cookie dough.
Pour cream cheese mixture over top and spread to edges
of dish. Break the remaining dough into small pieces and sprinkle over top of cream
cheese mixture. Lower oven
heat to 325° and bake bars for 35-40 minutes or until
tester comes out (almost) clean. Let cool completely out
on the counter before cutting into 16 equal pieces.
Chilling in the refrigerator for one hour before removing
cut bars prevents breakage. Refrigerate leftovers (if any!)
I baked my bars for about 38 minutes. Although the tester
came out with a little cream cheese mixture on it, I still
removed the bars from the oven and they set up nicely
once they cooled. I did this to avoid overcooked edges.

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Stuffed Banana Bites
These banana bites are a really fun way to serve an ordinary snack.
They are a great treat for kids - filled with healthy ingredients, disguised as a dessert!
The chocolate, peanut butter, and banana combo is perfect for an afternoon snack, or after dinner dessert alternative.
Ingredients:
bananas (find the ones with as little curve as possible)
creamy peanut butter
chocolate chips
chopped nuts or sprinkles (optional)
Directions:
Try and find bananas with little to no curve for best results.
Peel and slice off the ends of each banana. Cut the banana into about two 3" long pieces.
The amount of banana pieces you will get from each banana will vary, depending on the size of your banana and how long your banana pieces you cut are. You should
get about 2-3 banana bites per banana.
Stand your banana bites up on their flat, cut side. Hollow out the center using a straw or apple corer.
Be sure not to go all the way down, leaving about a half inch banana, unhallowed, at the bottom.
Melt your chocolate according to the package, in a small, deep bowl. Dip the bottom half of your banana bites into the melted chocolate and roll in chopped nuts or
sprinkles. Place on wax paper to dry. Refrigerate until chocolate has set and dry.

Once dry, remove the bananas from your refrigerator. Transfer the peanut butter to a pastry bag or a zip lock bag with the corner snipped off, and pipe it into your
hollowed out bananas.
Continue piping a swirl at the top for presentation if desired. You can also just spoon the peanut butter into the hole for a more simple alternative.
Enjoy!

~APPLE PIE BAKED IN APPLE~
5-6 Granny Smith apples (make sure they can stand on their own)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
pie crust (homemade or pre-made)
1) Preheat oven to 375F.
2) Cut off the top of 4 apples off and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon or
melon baller very carefully, as to not puncture the peel.
If you’re a skilled interior apple excavator, salvage as much as you can so you can use it for Step
2. I, on the other hand, am not skilled so I just had to throw my interior apples away and chop up
additional apples for filling.
3) Remove skin from remaining apple(s) and slice very thinly. These apple pieces will give you the
additional filling needed to fill the four apples you are baking.
Mix sliced apples with sugars and cinnamon in a bowl. If you prefer more or less cinnamon make
adjustments as desired. Same goes for the sugar.
Scoop sliced apples into hollow apples.
4) Roll out pie crust and slice into 1/4 inch strips. You can also add a strip of pastry inside the top
of the apple almost like a liner to add a little more texture/sweetness to the pie.
Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.
5) Place apples in an 8×8 pan. Add just enough water to the cover the bottom of the pan.
Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and sliced apples
are soft.

¼ teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
¾ cup unsalted butter , room temperature
2 1⁄8; cups sugar

stick unsalted butter, room temperature
oz or 1 package of cream cheese softened
teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cups of powdered sugar
For the frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the
vanilla. Add powdered sugar and beat on low-speed just until combined. Don’t
over beat. Sprinkle chopped nuts over top of the frosting.
Notes: I changed the amount of bananas and added 1/2 cup more because I had them. I also
increased the amount of nutmeg from a pinch to 1/4 tsp because I like it. The recipe recommends
to put the hot cake into the freezer to make it more moist. I had no room in my freezer so I put
ice in a roasting pan and then put the 9 x 13 cake pan on top. I do not think either step is
necessary but it is what I did.

I have made many banana cakes, and this may be the "best ever", it is moist, tender, lots of

DIRECTIONS:
Cheesecake:
Preheat oven to 325°. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese on medium until fluffy,
scraping down side of bowl. Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy. Beat in vanilla
extract and salt. Beat in eggs, one at a time, scraping down side of bowl after each
addition. Beat in sour cream. Fold in crushed Oreos.
Cut parchment paper in a circle and line the bottom of a 9" springform pan. Pour batter
into the pan, smoothing the top. Bake until just set in center, about 45 minutes. Let cool
20 minutes. Run a paring knife around edge; let cool completely. Remove outer ring of
cheesecake pan, but leave metal bottom. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze. (I just
refrigerated - it worked fine)
Cake:
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round pans.
Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add
eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of electric mixer 2 minutes. If using
coffee granules, dissolve them in the boiling water. Stir water or coffee into batter. (batter
will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10
minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
Frosting:
Place white chocolate in double boiler over pot of simmering water just until it begins to
melt. Stir to fully melt, remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly. Meanwhile, cream
butter. Once chocolate has cooled, beat in with butter. Continue to mix at low to medium
speed while adding vanilla. Gradually add in cream/milk and powdered sugar, alternating
until frosting reaches desired consistency.
Assembly:
Place one layer of cake on cake stand. Frost top with a thin layer of frosting, and a
sprinkle of crushed Oreos. Remove cheesecake from freezer, unwrap, and remove metal
bottom of the pan, then peel off parchment paper. Place cheesecake layer on top of the
cake. If the cheesecake is wider than the cake, and it is necessary to to trim it, wait
approximately 5-10 minutes for the cheesecake to soften, then trim it with a knife. Frost
top with a thin layer of frosting, and a sprinkle of crushed Oreos. Place top layer of cake
on top of the cheesecake, and coat entire cake with a layer frosting to act as the crumb
coat. Be careful not to get any crumbs in the bowl of frosting! Refrigerate approximately
30 minutes, then frost with as much of the remaining frosting as necessary. Top with mini
Oreos, crushed Oreos, or any decoration of your choosing. Refrigerate until ready to
serve.

Apple Pie Cookies!
What you’ll need for 6-8 good sized Pie Cookies:
1 Box of frozen Pillsbury Pie Crust (2 sheets per box)
Approx. 1 Can of Apple Pie Filling (just enough for a thin layer)
Approx. 1 Cup of Caramel Sauce (just enough for a light coating)
1 Egg..for egg-wash
2 tbsp. Cinnamon/Sugar
1 tbsp. Nutmeg
Flour just for sprinkling
A round cookie cutter..any size you like
Directions:
Lay out a sheet of Pie Crust, sprinkle it with some flour and slightly roll it out, just to
increase its surface area.
Pour some of the Caramel Sauce (Just enough to coat the crust) onto the crust and evenly
spread it around, creating a thin layer of caramel…
Coarsely chop the Apple Pie Filling into small pieces…
Top the caramel layer with a layer of the chopped up Apple Pie Filling, making sure not to
add too much pie filling…
Roll out the second sheet of Pie Crust the same size as the first sheet, and slice it into
strips…
Create a lattice crust (just like on a pie) for the top of the pie filling…DON’T do what I did
and create the lattice on the counter, it’s not fun getting it on top of the bottom
crust..ugh! Create your lattice on top of the actual filling, as if it were a pie!
Dip your cookie cutter into some egg wash and cut out your Pie Cookies…
Brush the tops of them with some egg wash and sprinkle them with the Cinnamon Sugar
and Nutmeg..
Place them onto a baking sheet and bake them at 350 degrees for approx. 20-25 minutes,
until they’re golden and firm.

Buko Pie Recipe
Resembling a coconut cream pie, except that it is made with young coconuts
Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
6 to 8 tablespoons cold water
2 cups young coconut meat
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch diluted in 1/2 cup young coconut water
1/2 cup evaporated milk
Directions
1. Create the crust
1.1 Combine flour and salt then mix using a balloon whisk.
1.2 Add butter and shortening then mix using a pastry mixer.
1.3 Gradually add cold water a tablespoon at a time while mixing the ingredients.
1.4 When everything is completely mixed, gather the mixture and divide into two equal
parts.
1.5 In a flat surface flatten each of the dough and roll using a rolling pin until wide
enough to fit an eight or nine inch cake pan. Note: Sprinkle flour over the flat surface to
prevent the dough from sticking or use a silicon mat.
1.6 Arrange the first dough over the cake pan. This will be the base.
1.7 Set the second flattened dough aside. This will be needed after arranging the filling
in the cake pan.
2. Make the filling

2.3 Put-in the young coconut meat and cook for 3 minutes.
2.4 Pour-in the cornstarch diluted in young coconut water and stir thoroughly while
cooking. Cook until the texture thickens.

7. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until the color turns golden brown. Note: Baking time
may vary; make sure to check the color of the crust to determine if baking is complete.
8. Let cool and serve. Share and enjoy!

No-Bake Cookie Bars
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Spray an 8″ square pan with cooking spray and set aside. Measure the peanut butter &
oats and set aside so they’re ready when you need them. Have your vanilla bottle handy
along with a teaspoon. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa.
Bring to a boil and once it reaches a full rolling boil, cook for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring
constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter until melted, then stir in the
vanilla and lastly the oats. Immediately pour mixture into prepared pan and put on a
cooling rack to set until completely cool. Once cool, cut into bars. To make this recipe into
the regular round cookies, just drop the mixture by spoonfuls onto wax paper and let cool.
You can store them in an airtight container several days at room temp or over a week in
the fridge.

I am about to change your life. I am about to make you the happiest person on the
planet. I am about to show you how to make brownies with only three ingredients. And I
am going to exploit the inherent fantastical properties of Nutella in doing so.
See, Nutella already has fat, milk, and chocolate in it. Since those are the things you
would normally be adding to traditional brownies separately, why not use a product that
already has these things - and hazelnuts! See, you knew Nutella was amazing. But maybe
you didn't realize its full potential. Until today - the day you met three-ingredient Nutella
brownies.
Go. Make these. Now.
Ingredients:
1 cup (280g) Nutella
2 eggs
10 tbsp (62g) flour
Directions:
Put it in a bowl. Mash it up. Pour into a pan or muffin tin. Top with hazelnuts if you're
feeling extra fancy. Bake at 350F (180C) for around 30 minutes (less time for cupcake
form, more time if the centers aren't baked through).
That's it. You're done. Eat them. Revel. Be amazed.

I get a lot of requests for my recipe for Cool Mint Brownies. The last time I posted it, it got over
4,000 shares. I've been making them for years and yet they just seem to get better each time. Try
them!
COOL MINT BROWNIES
1 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa
2 Tablespoon honey
4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mint Layer:
5 Tablespoons salted butter, softened
3 Tablespoons whole milk
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
2 1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
1-2 drops green food coloring (optional)
Chocolate Topping:
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
Preheat oven to 350° Grease a 9 x 13 pan. Melt butter and mix in the cocoa. Allow to cool. Add
honey, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Pour batter into prepared pan and
bake for 25 minutes. Cool completely.
To prepare mint layer: In a medium bowl, combine softened butter, corn syrup, salt, and
powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Add mint extract and food coloring and combine
well. Add milk gradually until the consistency is a little thinner than cake frosting. (I used only 2
1/2 tablespoons to get that consistency.)
Spread mint icing over completely cooled brownies. Place brownies in freezer or fridge for a little
while to stiffen up the icing.
Remove brownies from freezer and carefully add small dollops of chocolate on top. The careful run
knife through just the chocolate to give a swirl effect. Or you can simply spread the chocolate
layer over the entire mint layer. They can be stored in the refrigerator (my favorite) or served at
room temperature.

trying to cut the slice.)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups canned* chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter (can use PB2 from gym to make healthier, check your
labels)
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (agave would be amazing too!)
1 teaspoon baking powder**
a pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn’t have salt in it
1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips
* My can was a 400 gram can, 240 grams without the water, and I used all but a few tablespoons
** If you need grain-free baking powder, you can use 1 part cream of tartar + 1 part baking soda + 2 parts
arrowroot.
Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C.
Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth.
Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they’re
combined.
Put in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
With wet hands, form into 1 1/2″ balls. Place onto a piece of parchment paper. If you want them to look more like
normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don’t do much rising. Bake for about 10 minutes.
Yields about fourteen 1 1/2″ cookie dough balls.
*** Don't even try with regular peanut butter! They'll come out oily. You MUST use natural peanut butter

Jello in a can!
Thought this was pretty neat!!
Pour out liquid from a can of sliced pineapple and discard.
Dissolve a 3oz. box of sugar free lime Jello in 1 cup boiling water (you could also use the
pineapple juice and water to equal 1 cup liquid)
Pour hot Jello water over pineapple rings in the can.
Chill until set. Run hot water on the sides and bottom of can to loosen. Then cut the
bottom of the can and push the mold out. Cut between pineapple slices and serve.
You can use any flavor of Jello that you wish!
*Optional: top with cottage cheese or a dollop of whipped cream.
*You could also do this with other canned fruit and flavors of Jello, but you would lose the
nifty pineapple ring effect.

Orange Zucchini Bread
Ingredients:
Makes 2 loaves (freezes beautifully sans glaze)
3 cups flour
2 cups zucchini
1 teaspoon salt, scant
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup applesauce, or 2 eggs
1/3 cup coconut oil
zest of one orange
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon orange juice
1/3 cup walnuts or raisins
Glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoon orange juice 1/4 teaspoon zest
Preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease two loaf pans.
2. Wash and dry the zucchini. Using a box grater grate 2 cups worth and set aside.
3. Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well with a whisk and make a
well in the center of the mixture.
4. Wash and zest the orange.
5. In another cup mix the applesauce, orange zest, juice, vanilla, oil and sugar until
combined. Add to the flour mixture, folding gently until combined.
6. Fold in the zucchini (and walnuts or raisins if you are using them) and split the batter
between the two greased loaf pans.
7. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden and a tooth pick inserted in the center of the bread
comes out clean.
8. Prepare the glaze: Mix the remaining orange juice and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in a
small bowl. Add the remaining zest and stir until smooth and combined.
8. Cool the bread for 10 minutes in the pans. Then, run the blade of knife around the loaf
to gently separate it from the sides of the pan. Invert the loaves and the bread should
slide out. Place on a wire rack with a large pan or plate below it to finish cooling.
9. While the bread is still hot spoon half of the glaze onto the top of each loaf. It will
almost immediately drip down the sides of the loaf. Cool completely before serving.

"So Light and moist ~ Not Too Sweet ~Perfect after a heavy meal!!
This recipe is so different from any cake you have ever tasted!! Give it a try....I know you

I used to SELL this to Individuals, Restaurants and Coffee Shops, when I was young.
People couldn't get enough of it!!
You can Freeze the layers easily and have a picture perfect cake ready at the drop of a
hat!"
Connie's Danish Heirloom Layer Cake
Ingredients:
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup of sugar
pinch salt
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 + 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 pint whipping cream - whipped and sweetened with 1 Tbsp. icing sugar
1 - 2 pounds sliced slightly sweetened strawberries - or fruit of choice
Directions:
In a medium bowl, mix together with a whisk or wooden spoon, yogurt, sugar, sour
cream, egg, salt, baking soda, baking powder. Add flour and vanilla.
Grease or spray 3 - 9" layer pans and divide batter evenly between pans. (the batter will
seem skimpy....but spread as evenly as you can with a spatula in each pan - layers will
rise on baking).
Bake at 350 oven (325 if using Convection oven 325 oven) Bake for only 10 - 12
minutes....till Very Light Brown. Cool on racks...and remove from pans with a plastic
spatula onto racks to finish cooling as soon as you can handle the cakes.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT over bake!! If not using immediately - put wax paper between
layers, cover with plastic and refrigerate or freeze till ready to assemble cake.
Layer cake layers: 1/3 sweetened whipped cream and 1/2 sweetened sliced strawberries,
or fruit of choice - then 1/3 sweetened whipped cream and 1/2 berries. Last layer - just
sweetened whipped cream. Decorate with berries.
This cake tastes even better the next day and the day after that....if there is any left!! The
Trick is Not to Over bake the layers...or it will be dry and not nice and moist.

large eggs, room temperature
cups (one pint) sour cream, room temperature
8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
tablespoons (one stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cups sugar
tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
teaspoon fresh lemon juice
teaspoon grated lemon zest
Generously butter the inside of a 10-inch spring form pan. Wrap a double layer of heavyduty aluminum foil tightly around the outside bottom and sides, crimping and pleating the
foil to make it conform to the pan. This will help to prevent water seeping into the pan
when you put it into the bain-marie. Position the baking rack in the center of the oven;
preheat the oven to 300* Fahrenheit.
In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sour cream until
well blended.
In a medium-sized bowl, beat the cream cheese with the butter until smooth and creamy.
Add this to the egg-sour cream mixture and beat until smooth.
Add the sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest and beat thoroughly, about
2 minutes.
Pour into the prepared springform pan and place in a roasting pan (or other pan) large
enough to prevent the sides from touching. Place in the oven and carefully pour in enough
very hot tap water to reach halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
Bake for 2 hours, 15 minutes, or until the cake is very lightly colored and a knife inserted
in the center emerges clean. Remove from the water bath and carefully peel the aluminum
foil from around the pan. Let stand at room temperature until completely cool, about 4
hours. Refrigerate, covered, until well chilled. For best flavor and texture, this cheesecake
is best chilled overnight.

Introducing the banana oatie. I came across the idea
when I was looking for a homemade rusk recipe for
my first child. The great things about this recipe is
it is really easy, requires no measurements, is sugar
free and suits kids of all ages. My biggest challenge in
finding suitable 'healthy' treats for kids is the sugar
content. My boy is nearly two and is not given
commercial biscuits or other similar products. We are
trying to keep his exposure to sugar very limited.
I gave him banana oaties from around 9 months. I
used organic oats and whizzed them up in the food
processor to make the final product easy to chew. I
make them in little bars that are either a bite size
snack for me or an easy to hold mini meal for bub. As
he progressed in age I did not worry about whizzing
the oats and just used rolled oats straight up. I
started to add other dry ingredients (I know some
have natural sugars) including dried cranberries,
currants, apricots, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg.
TIPS
I have included instructions for 5 bananas but of course you can use however many you
have on hand. We eat a lot of bananas here and occasionally some start turning black.
Perfect! Throw them in the freezer skin and all. Once you have 4-5 collected take them
out and put them in a bowl in the fridge overnight to defrost. Drain off the juice then peel
each banana. Alternatively you can use fresh bananas.
Depending on the squishiness of your bananas depends on how many oats to add. I just
keep adding until I get a consistency I can easily mould into bars. Not too sticky, not too
dry.
I use a reusable baking mat so I do not need cooking spray or single-use baking paper.
Cooking times will vary depending on your preference for chewy or crunchy. Cook for less
time for chewy and longer for crunchy.
Cool on a rack and transfer to a container to freeze. They will last a few days in the fridge.
I tend to keep 2-3 in the fridge then freeze the rest. Using 5 bananas as per instructions
below makes about 25 bars. I freeze in a square cookie tin.
You could try to bake this as a slice then cut into bars. I have not tried it though. I like
shaping into bars before cooking as it makes it quicker to cook (I assume) and means I
don't need to do anything after they are cooked. Great if you are likely to get interrupted.
Also you would need cooking spray or baking paper with this method. You could also try
them in silicone cupcake moulds.

While cakes are cooking, start on the caramel.
Combine granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a medium, heavy saucepan over
medium-high heat; cook until sugar dissolves, stirring gently for 3 minutes.
Stop stirring and continue cooking 10 minutes or until the color of light brown sugar.
Remove from heat; carefully stir in butter and milk. Place pan over medium-high heat until

Remove pan from heat; cool caramel to room temperature. Cover and chill 1 hour or until
slightly thickened.
Take cheesecakes out of the oven when they are done. Once cool, the middle will slightly
fall and this is the perfect indent for the caramel.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon caramel over each cheesecake.

5 MINUTE 4 INGREDIENT NO BAKE CHEESECAKE
Ingredients1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 8 ounce (250g) tub of cool whip (whipping cream)
1/3 cup of lemon or lime juice
1 8 ounce (250g) package of cream cheese.
Most important part of this recipe, is to leave the cream cheese out for a couple hours at
room temperature. The cream cheese will become soft and smooth. The importance of
this is to create a smooth texture. Not doing so, will create horrible lumps of cream cheese
that will ruin the flavor of this pie. After your cream cheese is softened enough, I like to
see if it will spread easily with a plastic spatula. In a mixing bowl, mix all before
mentioned ingredients. Please note: the lemon/lime juice must come last. The reaction of
the citrus juice will start to harden your mixture almost immediately. On the low speed of
you hand mixer, blend well. Around 2 minutes of so is plenty, just make sure all
ingredients are incorporated. Immediately pour mixture into a waiting graham crust or for
those of us that can't have the gluten, I opt for muffin cups. Refrigerate for an hour to
and hour and a half and viola.

Homemade Krispy Kremes — Yes, this is the actual recipe! *To SAVE this recipe, be sure
to click SHARE so it will store on your personal page.* Ingredients: 3 tbsp milk 3 tbsp
boiling water 1 tsp dry active yeast 8 oz all purpose flour (a little under 2 cups - I
recommend you measure and weigh. See my note above) 1 1/2 oz sugar (about 3
tablespoons) 1 egg 1 oz butter, cold to room temperature (just don't melt it, okay?) dash
of salt Enough oil to cover the bottom few inches of a wok, or a deep fryer. Directions: In
a large measuring jug, combine the milk and boiling water. Add a teaspoon of the sugar
and the yeast. Stir it gently, then leave it in a warm place for the yeast to activate (aka
foam). In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, the rest of the sugar, and the salt. Cut
in the butter using your fingers or a pastry blender, until it resembles crumbs. Add the egg
(give it a quick beat) and yeast mixture to the flour mix, and mix into a smooth dough.
This usually takes about 5 minutes of mixing. Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured
counter and knead for about 5 to 10 minutes—it should feel springy and little bubbles
should form under the surface. Place it back in the bowl, cover with a cloth or plastic
wrap, and let rise for about an hour until double in size. Once risen, place the dough onto
the counter and cut it into 4 pieces. One piece at a time, stretch it into a long rope about
an inch to an inch and a half wide. Cut strips about an inch long, ball em up with your
hands, and place them on a baking tray or wire rack to wait. Cover the doughnuts holes
with a cloth to rise while you heat the oil to 375F. Place the doughnuts into the oil and fry
until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes. Be sure to fry only a few at a time so
they don’t overcrowd and stick together. Drain on a paper towel or wire rack over a cloth,
before glazing them. Be sure to glaze them warm, or else they won’t get that delicious
coverage! Glaze: 1/3 cup butter 2 cups confectioners' sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 4
tablespoons hot water or as needed A brief note: I recommend a scale, as not all flours
(and cup measurements) are made equal. 2 cups of my Canadian flour in my Canadian
cups on my scale might be more or less than yours. If you don't have a scale, start at 1
1/2 cups and work your way up from there.

Jalapeño Popper Dip ~ everyone will ask for your recipe!
6-8 slices of bacon, diced and cooked crispy
2 8-oz packages of cream cheese, soft
1 cup of mayonnaise
4-6 jalapeno's, chopped and deseeded. The seeds will make it fiery hot.
1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup diced green onion
Topping:
1 cup of crushed crackers ( I used Ritz)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 stick of butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all of the ingredients into a medium bowl. Stir well.
Transfer to an oven proof dish. The size of the dish depends on how thick the dip is. The
thicker the dip the longer it may need to warm up. I used this stoneware dish that is
round and measures 12 inches across. My dip is usually about an inch thick.
Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle all over the top of the dip.
Bake the dip for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly.

♥ ♥ NEW WAY TO SERVE POTATOES, I LOVE IT ♥ ♥
Just mash potatoes plain with butter or you can add yummy ingredients like cooked
bacon, cheese, parsley, green onion, garlic, etc. Stuff in to a greased muffin tin, run a fork
along the top and brush with melted butter or olive oil. Bake at 375 degrees or until tops
are crispy and golden.
Yes we still need carbs in our diet even when we are trying to lose weight so this is a
great way to stick with portion control!!!
Also remember there are varying sizes in muffin pans so you can choose the serving size!!
Using mini muffin tins you can turn this into a healthy alternative to chips or wedges too.
You still get the soft potato centre with the crunch on the outside without all the fat!!!!

Never boil corn again! Want to know the easiest way to cook corn on the cob? Throw it in
the oven at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Thats it. Leave the husk on, it willtrap in the moisture,
leaving you with juicy, tender corn. The husk and silk will peel away easily once its
cooked. Cut off the large end and it slides right out with no silk. Bonus - keeps more of
the nutrients in the corn (no boiling is best).

I am pretty sure that I have discovered the KFC secret recipe! It is DEAD ON! It is also
baked...not fried and there isn't any skin! So you get to enjoy the taste of the seasoning,
instead of pulling it off because of the slimy skin!
This is super easy and you are TOTALLY going to love it!

Mix in a Gallon Size Ziploc or Large Bowl:
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 T Season All
3/4 tsp Pepper
1 c. Flour
2 tsp. Paprika
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut 1/2 stick of butter into a few pieces and place in a 9x13
pan. Melt butter in pre-heated oven.
Spread melted butter around the bottom of the pan. Lightly spray the pan, if needed, to
make sure that there are no dry spots.
Shake excess milk off of chicken and completely coat each piece with the seasoning mix.
You can either shake the chicken in the bag, until coated, or dip each piece in the bowl
until coated.
Place each piece of chicken in the pan.
Cook for 20 min. Turn each piece of chicken and continue cooking for 20 more minutes, or

Twice Baked Potato Casserole
I just throw this together without measuring anything so adjust to your own liking. I also
cooked it for a crowd but never measure anything, you can do this recipe less very easily.
5 lb bag of potatoes peeled.
1 box cream cheese softened
1 stick of butter
1 ½ cups of cheddar cheese (You can use your favorite kind of cheese)
½ - 1 cup of sour cream
Bacon cooked and crumbled (1/2 package)
Green Onion diced (Optional, and I used 6)
Milk as needed for mashing consistency.
I peel and boil my potatoes for faster cooking but you can also bake them and scoop out
the insides, however you prefer. Drain potatoes when ready to mash and add the cream
cheese, butter, shredded cheese, sour cream, and milk (as needed). When you get your
right consistency, add ¾ of the bacon and ¾ of the green onion. Place in a greased
casserole and garnish with the remaing bacon and onion. You can also add more shredded
cheese to the top for garnish. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Then ENJOY!!!!

Cracker Barrel chicken n' dumplins
Ingredients
2 cups Flour
½ teaspoons Baking Powder
1 pinch Salt
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 cup Milk, A Bit Less Than A Full Cup
2 quarts Chicken Broth
3 cups Cooked Chicken
Recipe Description
A bowl of chicken and dumplings. A glass of sweet tea. It’s a meal any Kentuckian would
be proud to fix and danged happy to sit down to. And it’s not hard to make. Come on, I’ll
show you how.
Preparation Instructions
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into the dry
ingredients with a fork or pastry blender. Stir in the milk, mixing with a fork until the
dough forms a ball.
Heavily flour a work surface. You’ll need a rolling pin and something to cut the dumplings
with. I like to use a pizza cutter. I also like to use a small spatula to lift the dumplings off
the cutting surface.
Roll the dough out thin with a heavily floured rolling pin. Dip your cutter in flour and cut
the dumplings in squares about 2″x2″. It’s okay for them not to be exact. Just eye ball it.
Some will be bigger, some smaller, some shaped funny.
Use the floured spatula to put them on a heavily floured plate. Just keep flouring between
the layers of dumplings.
To cook them, bring the broth to a boil. Drop the dumplings in one at a time, stirring while
you add them. The extra flour on them will help thicken the broth. Cook them for about
15-20 minutes or until they not doughy tasting. Add the cooked chicken to the pot and
you’re done!

Instead of bread - make oppsie bread instead YUMMMMM
Will you have a hard time living without bread? Ooopsies are a good option. It’s a “bread”
without carbs and can be eaten in a variety of ways.
Oopsies
6–8 depending on size.
3 eggs
100 grams (3.5 ounces) of cream cheese
a pinch of salt
½ teaspoon baking powder (can be excluded)
Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another.
Whip the egg whites together with the salt until very stiff. You should be able to turn the
bowl over without the egg whites moving.
Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. If you choose, add the psyllium seed husk
and baking powder (this makes the Oopsie more bread-like).
Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.
Put 6 large or 8 smaller oopsies on a baking tray.
Bake in the middle of the oven at 150° C (300° F) for about 25 minutes – until they turn
golden.
You can eat Oopsies as bread or use them as a bun for a hotdog or hamburger. You can
also put different kinds of seeds on them before baking them, for instance poppy, sesame
or sunflower seeds.

Crockpot Bacon Cheese Potatoes
Ingredients
1/4 pound bacon, diced – I bake it first in the oven so that it is “done” and browned then I
dice it and place in the crock pot.
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced (or if you use a new potato or Yukon gold then halve)
1/2 pound cheddar cheese, thinly sliced (shredded is fine)
salt and pepper
butter
Green Onions (optional)
Instructions
Line crockpot with foil, leaving enough to cover the potatoes when finished – this will help
to not stick and to steam the potatoes – also to keep them from getting discolored or
mushy.
Layer half each of the bacon, onions and potatoes in the crockpot.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and dot with (real) butter.
Repeat layers of bacon, onions, potatoes and cheese. Dot with butter.
Cover with remaining foil.
Cover and cook on low for up to 6 hours (check at 4 hours – depending on your crock
pot).
Add cheese for the last 20 – 30 minutes and enjoy!

Oh my word... I've been looking for a good pork chop recipe & this looks AMAZING!
Crunchy honey garlic pork chops/ I would try this with boneless chicken too!
Ingredients: 6-9 pork chops (not too thick, you can use boneless pork loin)
2 eggs
4 Tbs water
2 cups flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
Canola or vegetable oil for frying chops Glaze: 1 1/2 cups honey 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2
tsp. ginger dash of cayenne pepper (to your taste) 1/2 cup soy sauce 1 Tbs chopped garlic
2 Tbs butter Whisk the eggs and 4 Tbs. water together in a shallow dish. Mix the flour,
salt, pepper, and garlic powder in another shallow dish. Dip the chops in the flour, then
over into the egg. Then back over into the flour mixture once again. This is what puts the
extra crispy coating on the chops. Be sure to get plenty of flour on in this last coating,
then shake them a little and place in a pan with about a half inch of oil. Be sure the oil is
hot, but not too hot or the chops will cook too fast. You need to get it good and hot and
then turn to about medium. Cook for about 6 minutes on each side. Try not to turn more
than twice or your breading will come off. Remove from the pan to a 9"x13" baking dish.
Saute the garlic a little in the butter. Add the honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, cayenne,
and ginger. Bring to a boil then reduce to low and simmer for about 5 minutes. Watch this
carefully because it will foam and might boil over. Pour 1/2 of the glaze over the pork
chops. Flip them over and pour the other 1/2 over the other side. Place uncovered in a
preheated 350 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes. This sets the glaze and finishes
them to be sure they are cooked through. ~Works great with chicken too!!!

45 USES FOR LEMONS THAT WILL BLOW YOUR SOCKS OFF!!!
Most people are familiar with the traditional uses for lemons to soothe sore throats and
add some citrus flavor to our foods.
However the diversity of applications for lemons far exceeds general knowledge and once
you read the following list, you'll likely want to stock at least a few lemons in your kitchen
24-7.
1. Freshen the Fridge
Remove refrigerator odors with ease. Dab lemon juice on a cotton ball or sponge and
leave it in the fridge for several hours. Make sure to toss out any malodorous items that
might be causing the bad smell.
2. High Blood Pressure
Lemon contains potassium which controls high blood pressure and reduces the effect of
nausea and dizziness.
3. Prevent Cauliflower From Turning Brown
Cauliflower tend to turn brown with even the slightest cooking. You can make sure the
white vegetables stay white by squeezing a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice on them before
heating.
4. Mental Health
Lemon water can also prep up your mood and relieve you from depression and stress.
Long distance walkers and world travelers as well as explorers look upon the lemon as a
Godsend. When fatigue begins, a lemon is sucked through a hole in the top. Quick acting
medicine it is, giving almost unbelievable refreshments.

5. Refresh Cutting Boards
No wonder your kitchen cutting board smells! After all, you use it to chop onions, crush
garlic, and prepare fish. To get rid of the smell and help sanitize the cutting board, rub it
all over with the cut side of half a lemon or wash it in undiluted juice straight from the
bottle.
6. Respiratory Problems
Lemon water can reduce phlegm; and can also help you breathe properly and aids a
person suffering with asthma.
7. Treating Arthritis and Rheumatism
Lemon is a diuretic - assists in the production of urine which helps you to reduce
inflammation by flushing out toxins and bacteria while also giving you relief from arthritis
and rheumatism.
8. Prevents Kidney Stones
Regular consumption of the refreshing drink -- or even lemon juice mixed with water -may increase the production of urinary citrate, a chemical in the urine that prevents the
formation of crystals that may build up into kidney stones.
9. Keep Insects Out of the Kitchen
You don’t need insecticides or ant traps to ant-proof your kitchen. Just give it the lemon
treatment. First squirt some lemon juice on door thresholds and windowsills. Then
squeeze lemon juice into any holes or cracks where the ants are getting in. Finally, scatter
small slices of lemon peel around the outdoor entrance. The ants will get the message
that they aren’t welcome. Lemons are also effective against roaches and fleas: Simply mix
the juice of 4 lemons (along with the rinds) with 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water and wash your
floors with it; then watch the fleas and roaches flee. They hate the smell.
10. Anti-Aging
Lemon water reduces the production of free radicals which are responsible for aging skin
and skin damage. Lemon water is calorie free and an antioxidant.
11. Fruit and Vegetable Wash
You never know what kind of pesticides or dirt may be lurking on the skin of your favorite
fruits and vegetables. Slice your lemon and squeeze out one tablespoon of lemon juice
into your spray bottle. The lemon juice is a natural disinfectant and will leave your fruits
and vegetables smelling nice too.
12. Treat Infections
Lemon water can fight throat infections thanks to its antibacterial property. If salt water
does not work for you, try lime and water for gargling.
13. Deodorize Your Garbage
If your garbage is beginning to smell yucky, here’s an easy way to deodorize it: Save
leftover lemon and orange peels and toss them at the base under the bag. To keep it
smelling fresh, repeat once every couple of weeks.

14. Keep Guacamole Green
You’ve been making guacamole all day long for the big party, and you don’t want it to
turn brown on top before the guests arrive. The solution: Sprinkle a liberal amount of
fresh lemon juice over it and it will stay fresh and green. The flavor of the lemon juice is a
natural complement to the avocados in the guacamole. Make the fruit salad hours in
advance too. Just squeeze some lemon juice onto the apple slices, and they’ll stay snowy
white.
15. Purges The Blood
We consume a lot of junk food or food with a lot of preservatives and artificial flavours.
This builds up a lot of toxins in the blood and body but daily consumption of lemon water
helps to purify the blood.
16. Make Soggy Lettuce Crisp
Don’t toss that soggy lettuce into the garbage. With the help of a little lemon juice you
can toss it in a salad instead. Add the juice of half a lemon to a bowl of cold water. Then
put the soggy lettuce in it and refrigerate for 1 hour. Make sure to dry the leaves
completely before putting them into salads or sandwiches.
17. Oral Health
Lemon juice also stops bleeding gums and reduces toothaches
18. Lighten Age Spots
Why buy expensive creams when you’ve got lemon juice? To lighten liver spots or
freckles, try applying lemon juice directly to the area. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then
rinse your skin clean. It’s a safe and effective skin-lightening agent.
19. Create Blonde Highlights
For salon-worthy highlights, add 1/4 cup lemon juice to 3/4 cup water and rinse your hair
with the mixture. Then, sit in the sun until your hair dries. To maximize the effect, repeat
once daily for up to a week.
20. Make a Room Scent/Humidifier
Freshen and moisturize the air in your home on dry winter days. Make your own room
scent that also doubles as a humidifier. If you have a wood-burning stove, place an
enameled cast-iron pot or bowl on top, fill with water, and add lemon (and/or orange)
peels, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and apple skins. No wood-burning stove? Use your
stovetop instead and just simmer the water periodically.
21. Clean and Whiten Nails
Pamper your hands without a manicurist. Add the juice of 1/2 lemon to 1 cup warm water
and soak your fingertips in the mixture for 5 minutes. After pushing back the cuticles, rub
some lemon peel back and forth against the nail.
22. Cleanse Your Face
Zap zits naturally by dabbing lemon juice on blackheads to draw them out during the day.
You can also wash your face with lemon juice for a natural cleanse and exfoliation. Your
skin should improve after several days of treatment. Lemon water is also a cooling agent,

best way to beat the heat.
23. Freshen Your Breath
Make an impromptu mouthwash by rinsing with lemon juice straight from the bottle.
Swallow for longer-lasting fresh breath. The citric acid in the juice alters the pH level in
your mouth, killing bacteria that causes bad breath. Rinse after a few minutes because
long-term exposure to the acid in lemons can harm tooth enamel.
24. Treat Flaky Dandruff
If itchy, scaly dandruff has you scratching your head, relief may be no farther away than
your refrigerator. Just massage two tablespoons lemon juice into your scalp and rinse with
water. Then stir one teaspoon lemon juice into one cup water and rinse your hair with it.
Repeat daily until your dandruff disappears.
25. Get Rid of Tough Stains on Marble
You probably think of marble as stone, but it is really petrified calcium (also known as old
seashells). That explains why it is so porous and easily stained and damaged. Those stains
can be hard to remove. If washing won’t remove a stubborn stain, try this: Cut a lemon in
half, dip the exposed flesh into some table salt, and rub it vigorously on the stain. But do
this only as a last resort; acid can damage marble. Rinse well. Use These Lemons To
Clean - Easy and Effective
26. Remove Berry Stains
It sure was fun to pick your own berries, but now your fingers are stained with berry juice
that won’t come off no matter how much you scrub with soap and water. Try washing
your hands with undiluted lemon juice, then wait a few minutes and wash with warm,
soapy water. Repeat until your hands are stain-free.
27. Soften Dry, Scaly Elbows
Itchy elbows are bad enough, but they look terrible too. For better looking (and feeling)
elbows, mix baking soda and lemon juice to make an abrasive paste, then rub it into your
elbows for a soothing, smoothing, and exfoliating treatment. Rinse your extremities in a
mixture of equal parts lemon juice and water, then massage with olive oil and dab dry
with a soft cloth.
28. Headaches
Lemon juice with a few teaspoons of hot tea added is the treatment of a sophisticated
New York bartender, for those who suffer with hangover headaches--and from headaches
due to many other causes. He converts his customers to this regime, and weans them
away from drug remedies completely.
29. Chills and Fevers
Chills and fevers may be due to a variety of causes; never the less the lemon is always a
helpful remedy. Spanish physicians regard it as an infallible friend.
30. Diptheria
Skip the vaccine for this disease. Lemon Juice Treatment still proves as one of the most
powerful antiseptics and the strong digestive qualities of the fruit are admired around the

world. With the juice every hour or two, and at the same time, 1/2 to 1 tsp. should be
swallowed. This cuts loose the false membrane in the throat and permits it to come out.
31. Vaginal Hygiene
Diluted lemon juice makes a safe and sane method of vaginal hygiene. Though it is a
powerful antiseptic it is nevertheless free from irritating drugs in douches and
suppositories.
32. Forget The Moth Balls
A charming French custom to keep closets free from moths is to take ripe lemons and
stick them with cloves all over the skin. The heavily studded lemons slowly dry with their
cloves, leaving a marvelous odor throughout the closets and rooms.
33. Stomach Health
Digestive problems are the most common ailments but warm water and lime juice is the
solution to most digestive problems. Lemon juice helps to purify the blood, reduces your
chances of indigestion, constipation, eliminates toxins from the body, adds digestion and
reduces phlegm.
34. Disinfect Cuts and Scrapes
Stop bleeding and disinfect minor cuts and scraps by pouring a few drops of lemon juice
directly on the cut. You can also apply the juice with a cotton ball and hold firmly in place
for one minute.
35. Soothe Poison Ivy Rash
You won’t need an ocean of calamine lotion the next time poison ivy comes a-creeping.
Just apply lemon juice directly to the affected area to soothe itching and alleviate the rash.
36. Remove Warts
You’ve tried countless remedies to banish warts and nothing seems to work. Next time,
apply a dab of lemon juice directly to the wart using a cotton swab. Repeat for several
days until the acids in the lemon juice dissolve the wart completely.
37. Bleach Delicate Fabrics
Avoid additional bleach stains by swapping ordinary household chlorine bleach with lemon
juice, which is milder but no less effective. Soak your delicates in a mixture of lemon juice
and baking soda for at least half an hour before washing.
38. Clean Tarnished Brass and Polish Chrome
Say good-bye to tarnish on brass, copper, or stainless steel. Make a paste of lemon juice
and salt (or substitute baking soda or cream of tartar for the salt) and coat the affected
area. Let it stay on for 5 minutes. Then wash in warm water, rinse, and polish dry. Use
the same mixture to clean metal kitchen sinks too. Apply the paste, scrub gently, and
rinse. Get rid of mineral deposits and polish chrome faucets and other tarnished chrome.
Simply rub lemon rind over the chrome and watch it shine! Rinse well and dry with a soft
cloth.

Simply scrub the stained area on shirts and blouses with equal parts lemon juice and
water. Your “pits” will be good as new, and smell nice too.
40. Boost Laundry Detergent
For more powerful cleaning action, pour 1 cup lemon juice into the washer during the
wash cycle. The natural bleaching action of the juice will zap stains and remove rust and
mineral discolorations from cotton T-shirts and briefs and will leave your clothes smelling
fresh. Your clothes will turn out brighter and also come out smelling lemon-fresh.
41. Rid Clothes of Mildew
Have you ever unpacked clothes you stored all winter and discovered some are stained
with mildew? To get rid of it, make a paste of lemon juice and salt and rub it on the
affected area, then dry the clothes in sunlight. Repeat the process until the stain is gone.
42. Eliminate Fireplace Odor
There’s nothing cozier on a cold winter night than a warm fire burning in the fireplace —
unless the fire happens to smell horrible. Next time you have a fire that sends a stench
into the room, try throwing a few lemon peels into the flames. Or simply burn some lemon
peels along with your firewood as a preventive measure.
43. Neutralize Cat-Box Odor
You don’t have to use an aerosol spray to neutralize foul-smelling cat-box odors or freshen
the air in your bathroom. Just cut a couple of lemons in half. Then place them, cut side
up, in a dish in the room, and the air will soon smell lemon-fresh.
44. Deodorize a Humidifier
When your humidifier starts to smell funky, deodorize it with ease: Just pour 3 or 4
teaspoons lemon juice into the water. It will not only remove the off odor but will replace
it with a lemon-fresh fragrance. Repeat every couple of weeks to keep the odor from
returning.
45. Reduce Asthma Symptoms
In addition to a general detoxifying diet, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice before each meal,
and before retiring can reduce asthma symptoms.
* If you do consume lemon peel, stick to organic lemons to reduce your pesticide
exposure.

45 Uses for Vinegar
Unleash the power of white vinegar―an all-purpose cleaner, brightener, herbicide and
more. Just a bit of this multitasker, straight up or mixed with water, can replace many
pricier products huddled under your sink. Try these tips to see how vinegar can make your
life cheaper and easier.
1. Freshen up the fridge. Clean the shelves and walls with a solution of half water and half
vinegar.
2. Brighten coffee cups and teacups. Gently scrub stains with equal parts vinegar and salt
(or baking soda).
3. Eliminate odors. Swab plastic containers with a cloth dampened with vinegar.
4. Kill bathroom germs. Spray full-strength vinegar around the sink and tub. Wipe clean
with a damp cloth.
5. Save a garment. To remove light scorch marks on fabrics, rub gently with vinegar. Wipe
with a clean cloth. This technique also works on antiperspirant stains.
6. Tidy up a toilet. Pour a cup or more of diluted white distilled vinegar into the bowl. Let
sit several hours or overnight. Scrub well with a toilet brush and flush.
7. Lose the carpet stain. Make a paste of 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar and ¼ cup
salt or baking soda. Rub into the stain and let dry. Vacuum the residue the next day.
(Always test an out-of-sight part of the carpet first.)
8. Renew paint brushes. To remove old paint, place brushes in a pot with vinegar. Soak
for an hour, then turn on the stove and bring the vinegar to a simmer. Drain and rinse
clean.
9. Wipe off a dirty faucet. To get rid of lime buildup, make a paste of 1 teaspoon vinegar
and 2 tablespoons salt. Apply to sink fixtures and rub with a cloth.

10. Stop static cling. Add ½ cup of white distilled vinegar to your wash cycle. The acid
reduces static and keeps dryer lint from sticking to your clothes.
11. Make old socks look new. Get the stains out of old socks and sweaty gym clothes by
soaking them in a vinegar solution. Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to a large pot of
water, bring to a boil and drop in the stained clothes. Let them soak overnight, and in the
morning stained clothes are fresh and bright.
12. Restore handbags and shoes. Wipe white distilled vinegar on scuffed leather bags and
shoes. It will restore their shine and help hide the marks.
13. Banish weeds. Pour white distilled vinegar on the weeds growing in the cracks of your
walkway and driveway. Saturate the plant so the vinegar reaches the roots.
14. Liven droopy flowers. Don’t throw out cut flowers once they start to wilt. Instead, add
two tablespoons of white vinegar and one teaspoon of sugar to a quart of water. Pour the
solution into your vase, and the flowers will perk up.
15. Put an end to itching. Dab a cotton ball soaked in white vinegar on mosquito bites and
insect stings. It will stop them from itching and help disinfect the area so they heal faster.
16. Whiten your teeth. Brush your teeth once a week with white distilled vinegar. Dip your
toothbrush into the vinegar and brush thoroughly. It will help prevent bad breath, too.
17. Make nail polish last longer. Before you apply your favorite polish, wipe your nails with
a cotton ball soaked in white distilled vinegar. The clean surface will help your manicure
last.
18. Keep car windows frost-free. Prevent windows from frosting over in a storm by coating
them with a solution of three parts white distilled vinegar to one part water. The acidity
hinders ice, so you won’t have to wake up early to scrape off your car.
19. Let your dog shine. Spray your dog with one cup white distilled vinegar mixed with
one quart water. The solution is a cheap alternative to expensive pet-care products, plus
the vinegar will help repel pests like fleas and ticks.
20. Battle litter-box odor. Cat litter can leave behind an unwelcome smell. Eliminate it by
pouring a half-inch of white distilled vinegar into the empty litter box. Let stand for 20
minutes, then rinse with cold water.
21. Kill bacteria in meat. Marinating in vinegar knocks out bacteria and tenderizes the
meat. Create a marinade by adding ¼ cup balsamic vinegar for every 2 pounds of meat to
your own blend of herbs and spices. Let the meat sit anywhere from 20 minutes to 24
hours, depending on how strong you want the flavor, then cook it in the morning without
rinsing.
22. Prevent cracked eggs. Prevent eggs from cracking as they hard-boil by adding two

tablespoons of white vinegar to the water. The eggs will stay intact, and the shells will
peel off more easily when you’re ready to eat them.
23. Steam away a microwave mess. Fill a small bowl with equal parts hot water and
vinegar, and place it in the microwave on high for 5 minutes. As the steam fills the
microwave, it loosens the mess, making clean up a breeze.
24. Repair DVDs. If you have a worn DVD that skips or freezes, wipe it down with white
distilled vinegar applied to a soft cloth. Make sure the DVD is completely dry before
reinserting it into the player.
25. Get those last drops. If you can’t get that final bit of mayonnaise or salad dressing out
of the jar, dribble in a few drops of vinegar. Put the cap on tightly and shake. The
remaining condiments will slide out.
26. Rinse fruits and vegetables. Add 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar to one pint
water. Use the mixture to wash fresh fruits and vegetables, then rinse thoroughly. The
solution kills more pesticide residue than does pure water.
27. Brighter Easter eggs. Before your kids dye Easter eggs, mix 1 teaspoon of vinegar with
½ cup of hot water, then add food coloring. The vinegar keeps the dye bright and
prevents the color from streaking.
28. Loosen a rusted screw. Pour vinegar onto the screw, and it will easily unstick.
29. Remove gum. To remove gum from fabric or hair, heat a small bowl of vinegar in the
microwave. Pour the warm vinegar over the gum, saturating the area. The gum will
dissolve.
30. Keep cheese from molding. Wrap cheese in a vinegar-soaked cloth, then place in an
airtight container and refrigerate.
31. Renew a loofah. Soak your loofah in equal parts vinegar and water for 24 hours to
dissolve soap residue, then rinse in cold water.
32. Remove wax. If you get melted candle wax on your wood furniture or floors, gently
wipe it away with a cloth soaked in a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water.
33. Take a relaxing bath. Add ½ cup of vinegar to warm bath water for a cheap spa
session at home. The vinegar removes dead skin, leaving you feeling soft and smooth.
34. Brighten your hair. Remove hair product buildup by rinsing a tablespoon of vinegar
through your hair once a month.

white vinegar and gently scrub. The vinegar breaks down the wax, making for an
inexpensive, nontoxic way to clean up after children.
37. Sticky stickers. Don’t scratch at the residue left by stickers or price tags. Instead, apply
vinegar to the gunk, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe the glue away.
38. Clean the dishwasher and coffee pot. Reduce soap buildup and food residue by
pouring a cup of vinegar into your empty dishwasher or coffee pot once a month and
letting it run a full cycle.
39. Sanitize pet accidents. You can remove the stain―and smell―of your pet’s accident by
mixing ¼ cup vinegar with a quart of water and blotting the mixture onto the mess with a
washcloth. Continue dabbing until the spot is gone.
40. Prep for summer grilling. To remove charcoal buildup from your grill, spray white
distilled vinegar on balled up aluminum foil and scrub the grate thoroughly.
41. Restore shower head pressure. If your shower head gets clogged with mineral
deposits, soak it for 15 minutes in a mixture of ½ cup vinegar and 1 quart water.
42. Clean your scissors. When your scissor blades get sticky, wipe them down with a cloth
dipped in full-strength white vinegar. Unlike soap and water, vinegar won’t ruin the blades
or rust the metal.
43. Unclog drains. For a natural, nontoxic way to clean clogged pipes, pour one cup of
baking soda, followed by one cup of white vinegar, down the drain. Let the products
bubble and foam, then flush the pipes with a pot of boiling water.
44. Eliminate dandruff. If your scalp is feeling dry or flaky, vinegar can be a simple athome remedy. Once a week, pour one cup of apple cider vinegar over your scalp, and let
it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with cool water.
45. Soften your feet. Summer sandals leaving you with cracked heals and calluses? Soak
your feet for 20 minutes a day in one part vinegar to two parts warm water. The vinegar
removes dead skin, leaving your feet soft and smooth.

Homemade Diaper Wipes!
Supplies:- Tall, round 3 Quart container with a lid
- Better quality paper towels (the cheap paper towels don't work well on a dirty bottom)
- Knife to cut the paper towel roll in two
- Baby shampoo
- Baby oil
Directions:
1. Cut a paper towel roll in half so you have two short rolls.
2. Set one roll inside the canister. Set the other half aside for next time.
3. Combine and stir together:
1 1/2 cup hot tap water
2 Tablespoon baby shampoo
2 Tablespoon baby oil
4. Pour the liquid mixture over the top of the paper towel roll. As the liquid soaks through,
the moisture will loosen the cardboard center making it easy to pull out. If you get lucky,
it will bring with it the end of the paper towel roll. If not, carefully pull on the wipes in the
center to get the sequence going.
5. Pull out the amount of paper towels (from the center) that are needed. Reseal after
each use.
6. If the wipes are not wet enough or the lid doesn't get put back on, just add more
water. If the wipes are too moist, leave the lid off for a little while.
**If you are out of the diaper stage, these work great for cleaning up messy hands and
faces when you are on the go. You can also use this mixture to re-wet purchased baby
wipes!

We all put our feet through a lot each day........... Here are a few great vinegar foot soak
remedies.
Once you return home after a busy and tough day, relaxing or surfing the television
channels, is a common routine. So, how about keeping your feet soaked in warm water
while you relax? A mixture of warm water and vinegar is the best one for relaxing your
tired feet. Moreover, soaking feet in vinegar is known to cure various feet problems. Here
are a few foot soak recipes which you must try.
Foot Soak Recipe for Regular Care
Mix 1 cup white vinegar and 2 gallons warm water together and a few drops of essential
oil. Soak your feet for 45 minutes in this mixture. Now use a pumice stone to remove the
skin from heels and callused areas of your feet. Take a soft brush and rub your upper foot
area and toes. Doing this once or twice a week, followed by application of a moisturizer is
sure to help you have soft and supple feet. This is one of the best solution for smelly feet
and nail fungus. Make sure that you do not use the same solution more than once.
Vinegar Foot Soak for Tired Feet
In order to make this foot soak, you need 1 cup sea salt, 1 cup Epsom salt, 1 cup vinegar
and 1/2 cup dried lavender. Now heat enough quantity of water till it is hot, yet bearable
for soaking your feet. Pour this water into a tub which is wide and deep enough for
soaking your feet properly. Now put all the above-mentioned ingredients in warm water
and stir the water for a minute. Just sit in a relaxing chair and put your feet in the tub.
Soak them for at least 20 minutes and see how great it feels.
Foot Soak for Athlete’s Foot
Most of you must be aware that vinegar can cure athlete’s foot. You can try soaking feet
in this solution for the same. Prepare a foot soak by mixing 1/2 cup vinegar, 2 teaspoon of
salt and enough warm water to cover your feet. Apart from this remedy, you can also
apply white distilled vinegar to the affected areas for curing athlete’s foot. Saturate a
cotton ball with vinegar and rub it over the affected areas. Remember that you will have
to do this for a few weeks even after the symptoms disappear as the fungus might affect

again. Both the methods, soaking feet in vinegar solution or applying it vinegar directly on
the problem area are very effective in treating this foot problem.
You can soak your feet in a solution made of equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water
as the same is also effective in curing athlete’s foot. Soak your feet in this mixture for 10
minutes daily for ten days or until the symptoms disappear. Moreover, this also relieves
itching and peeling caused due to athlete’s foot.
Foot Soak for Toenail Fungus
Vinegar cure for toenail fungus is very popular. Soaking feet in vinegar and water for at
least 30 minutes, twice a day or more will help kill the fungus. The acidity of vinegar
restores pH balance of nails and helps in soothing the discomfort caused due to toenail
fungus. Though most types of vinegar can be used in toenail fungus treatment, apple
cider vinegar is known to be most effective. You can also soak a cotton ball in apple cider
vinegar and apply it directly to the nail, but ensure that vinegar stays on your nails for a
significant amount of time. Let me tell you that apple cider vinegar is the most commonly
used solution for curing fungal infections. It is a strong astringent and has anti-fungal
properties. It is also known to reduce inflammation and pain linked with some stages of
fungal infections. Combining vinegar with hydrogen peroxide forms a solution effective in
wiping out bacteria and viruses.
Apart from curing foot problems there are many other uses and health benefits of
vinegar. The best way to have soft hands is by soaking them in vinegar and water
solution. Vinegar can also be used as an after-shave lotion. It is best for curing itchy skin,
dry skin, varicose veins and skin warts. Soaking feet in vinegar is the best way to energize
and relax your aching feet. So take a perfect size tub, make a vinegar foot soak, dip your
feet and experience the pleasure.

~ CLEANING THE OVEN ~
Begin by preheating the oven to 150 degrees F. While the oven is heating, put on a pot of
water to boil. Once the oven has reached 150 F, turn it off and pour 1 cup of ammonia
into a heat safe bowl or baking dish and place it on the top rack of the oven. Place the pot
of boiling water on the bottom rack, close the oven door, and leave them both in the oven
overnight.
The next morning, open the oven and remove both the bowl of ammonia and the pot of
water. Don’t dispose of the ammonia; you’ll want to use it later. Remove the racks and
leave the oven door open to air out for 15 minutes. Add 1-2 teaspoons of liquid dish soap
to the ammonia, along with a quart of warm water, and using a heavy-duty nylon
scrubbing pad dipped in the ammonia mixture, begin to wipe away the softened grease
and grime along the sides and bottom of the oven. It should be a fairly easy job at this
point. Wear some kitchen gloves, since ammonia can be caustic to skin. However, I found
it interesting that the ammonia was WAY LESS powerful smelling after having sat
overnight in the oven.

20 Pain Killers in your Kitchen
A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO TAKING MEDICATION!!!!
20 Painkillers in Your Kitchen
Make muscle pain a memory with ginger
When Danish researchers asked achy people to jazz up their diets with ginger, it eased
muscle and joint pain, swelling and stiffness for up to 63 percent of them within two
months. Experts credit ginger’s potent compounds called gingerols, which prevent the
production of pain-triggering hormones. The study-recommended dose: Add at least 1
teaspoon of dried ginger or 2 teaspoons of chopped ginger to meals daily.
Cure a toothache with cloves
Got a toothache and can’t get to the dentist? Gently chewing on a clove can ease tooth
pain and gum inflammation for two hours straight, say UCLA researchers. Experts point to
a natural compound in cloves called eugenol, a powerful, natural anesthetic. Bonus:
Sprinkling a ¼ teaspoon of ground cloves on meals daily may also protect your ticker.
Scientists say this simple action helps stabilize blood sugar, plus dampen production of
artery-clogging cholesterol in as little as three weeks.
Heal heartburn with cider vinegar
Sip 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with 8 ounces of water before every meal,
and experts say you could shut down painful bouts of heartburn in as little as 24 hours.
“Cider vinegar is rich in malic and tartaric acids, powerful digestive aids that speed the
breakdown of fats and proteins so your stomach can empty quickly, before food washes
up into the esophagus, triggering heartburn pain,” explains Joseph Brasco, M.D., a
gastroenterologist at the Center for Colon and Digestive Diseases in Huntsville, AL.
Erase earaches with garlic
Painful ear infections drive millions of Americans to doctors’ offices every year. To cure
one fast, just place two drops of warm garlic oil into your aching ear twice daily for five
days. This simple treatment can clear up ear infections faster than prescription meds, say
experts at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Scientists say garlic’s active
ingredients (germanium, selenium, and sulfur compounds) are naturally toxic to dozens of
different pain-causing bacteria. To whip up your own garlic oil gently simmer three cloves
of crushed garlic in a half a cup of extra virgin olive oil for two minutes, strain, then

refrigerate for up to two weeks, suggests Teresa Graedon, Ph.D., co-author of the book,
Best Choices From The People’s Pharmacy. For an optimal experience, warm this mix
slightly before using so the liquid will feel soothing in your ear canal.
Chase away joint and headache pain with cherries
Latest studies show that at least one in four women is struggling with arthritis, gout or
chronic headaches. If you’re one of them, a daily bowl of cherries could ease your ache,
without the stomach upset so often triggered by today’s painkillers, say researchers at
East Lansing ’s Michigan State University . Their research reveals that anthocyanins, the
compounds that give cherries their brilliant red color, are anti-inflammatories 10 times
stronger than ibuprofen and aspirin. “Anthocyanins help shut down the powerful enzymes
that kick-start tissue inflammation, so they can prevent, as well as treat, many different
kinds of pain,” explains Muraleedharan Nair, Ph.D., professor of food science at Michigan
State University . His advice: Enjoy 20 cherries (fresh, frozen or dried) daily, then continue
until your pain disappears.
Fight tummy troubles with fish
Indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel diseases...if your belly always
seems to be in an uproar, try munching 18 ounces of fish weekly to ease your misery.
Repeated studies show that the fatty acids in fish, called EPA and DHA, can significantly
reduce intestinal inflammation, cramping and belly pain and, in some cases, provide as
much relief as corticosteroids and other prescription meds. “EPA and DHA are powerful,
natural, side effect-free anti-inflammatories, that can dramatically improve the function of
the entire gastrointestinal tract,” explains biological chemist Barry Sears, Ph.D., president
of the Inflammation Research Foundation in Marblehead , MA . For best results, look for
oily fish like salmon, sardines, tuna, mackerel, trout and herring.
Prevent PMS with yogurt
Up to 80 percent of women will struggle with premenstrual syndrome and its
uncomfortable symptoms, report Yale researchers. The reason: Their nervous systems are
sensitive to the ups and downs in estrogen and progesterone that occur naturally every
month. But snacking on 2 cups of yogurt a day can slash these symptoms by 48 percent,
say researchers at New York ’s Columbia University . “Yogurt is rich in calcium, a mineral
that naturally calms the nervous system, preventing painful symptoms even when
hormones are in flux,” explains Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., a professor of gynecology at Yale
University .

Tame chronic pain with turmeric
Studies show turmeric, a popular East Indian spice, is actually three times more effective
at easing pain than aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen, plus it can help relieve chronic pain for
50 percent of people struggling with arthritis and even fibromyalgia, according to Cornell
researchers. That’s because turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, naturally shuts down
cyclooxygenase 2, an enzyme that churns out a stream of pain-producing hormones,
explains nutrition researcher Julian Whitaker, M.D. and author of the book, Reversing
Diabetes. The study-recommended dose: Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of this spice daily onto
any rice, poultry, meat or vegetable dish.
End endometrial pain with oats
The ticket to soothing endometriosis pain could be a daily bowl of oatmeal. Endometriosis
occurs when little bits of the uterine lining detach and grow outside of the uterus. Experts
say these migrating cells can turn menstruation into a misery, causing so much
inflammation that they trigger severe cramping during your period, plus a heavy ache that
drags on all month long. Fortunately, scientists say opting for a diet rich in oats can help
reduce endometrial pain for up to 60 percent of women within six months. That’s because
oats don’t contain gluten, a trouble-making protein that triggers inflammation in many
women, making endometriosis difficult to bear, explains Peter Green, M.D., professor of
medicine at Colombia University .
Soothe foot pain with salt
Experts say at least six million Americans develop painful ingrown toenails each year. But
regularly soaking ingrown nails in warm salt water baths can cure these painful infections
within four days, say scientists at California ’s Stanford University . The salt in the mix
naturally nixes inflammation, plus it’s anti-bacterial, so it quickly destroys the germs that
cause swelling and pain. Just mix 1 teaspoon of salt into each cup of water, heat to the
warmest temperature that you can comfortably stand, and then soak the affected foot
area for 20 minutes twice daily, until your infection subsides.
Prevent digestive upsets with pineapple
Got gas? One cup of fresh pineapple daily can cut painful bloating within 72 hours, say
researchers at California ’s Stanford University . That's because pineapple is natually
packed with proteolytic enzymes, digestive aids that help speed the breakdown of paincausing proteins in the stomach and small intestine, say USDA researchers.

Relax painful muscles with peppermint
Suffering from tight, sore muscles? Stubborn knots can hang around for months if they
aren’t properly treated, says naturopath Mark Stengler, N.D., author of the book, The
Natural Physician’s Healing Therapies. His advice: Three times each week, soak in a warm
tub scented with 10 drops of peppermint oil. The warm water will relax your muscles,
while the peppermint oil will naturally soothe your nerves -- a combo that can ease muscle
cramping 25 percent more effectively than over-the-counter painkillers, and cut the
frequency of future flare-ups in half, says Stengler.
Give your back some TLC with grapes
Got an achy back? Grapes could be the ticket to a speedy recovery. Recent studies at Ohio
State University suggest eating a heaping cup of grapes daily can relax tight blood vessels,
significantly improving blood flow to damaged back tissues (and often within three hours
of enjoying the first bowl). That’s great news because your back’s vertebrae and shockabsorbing discs are completely dependent on nearby blood vessels to bring them healing
nutrients and oxygen, so improving blood flow is essential for healing damaged back
tissue, says Stengler.
Wash away pain injuries with water
Whether it’s your feet, your knees or your shoulders that are throbbing, experts at New
York ’s Manhattan College , say you could kick-start your recovery in one week just by
drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily. Why? Experts say water dilutes, and then
helps flush out, histamine, a pain-triggering compound produced by injured tissues. “Plus
water is a key building block of the cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones, your
joints’ lubricating fluid, and the soft discs in your spine,” adds Susan M. Kleiner, Ph.D.,
author of the book, The Good Mood Diet. “And when these tissues are well-hydrated, they
can move and glide over each other without causing pain.” One caveat: Be sure to
measure your drinking glasses to find out how large they really are before you start
sipping, she says. Today’s juice glasses often hold more than 12 ounces, which means five
servings could be enough to meet your daily goal.
Heal sinus problems with horseradish

condition doesn’t just spur congestion and facial pain, it also makes sufferers six times
more likely to feel achy all-over. Horseradish to the rescue! According to German
researchers, this eye-watering condiment naturally revs up blood flow to the sinus cavities,
helping to open and drain clogged sinuses and heal sinus infections more quickly than
decongestant sprays do. The study-recommended dose: One teaspoon twice daily (either
on its own, or used as a sandwich or meat topping) until symptoms clear.
Beat bladder infections with blueberries
Eating 1 cup of blueberries daily, whether you opt for them fresh, frozen or in juice form,
can cut your risk of a urinary tract infection (UTIs) by 60 percent, according to researchers
at New Jersey’s Rutgers University. That's because blueberries are loaded with tannins,
plant compounds that wrap around problem-causing bacteria in the bladder, so they can’t
get a toehold and create an infection, explains Amy Howell, Ph.D. a scientist at Rutgers
University .
Heal mouth sores with honey
Dab painful canker and cold sores with unpasteurized honey four times daily until these
skin woes disappear, and they’ll heal 43 percent faster than if you use a prescription
cream, say researchers at the Dubai Specialized Medical Center in the United Arab
Emirates . Raw honey’s natural enzymes zap inflammation, destroy invading viruses and
speed the healing of damaged tissues, say the study authors.
Fight breast pain with flax
In one recent study, adding 3 tablespoons of ground flax to their daily diet eased breast
soreness for one in three women within 12 weeks. Scientists credit flax’s phytoestrogens,
natural plant compounds that prevent the estrogen spikes that can trigger breast pain.
More good news: You don’t have to be a master baker to sneak this healthy seed into
your diet. Just sprinkle ground flax on oatmeal, yogurt, applesauce or add it to smoothies
and veggie dips.
Cure migraines with coffee

absorb painkillers more quickly and more effectively.
Tame leg cramps with tomato juice

deficiencies, which occur when this mineral is flushed out by diuretics, caffeinated
beverages or heavy perspiration during exercise. But sip 10 ounces of potassium-rich
tomato juice daily and you'll not only speed your recovery, you'll reduce your risk of
painful cramp flare-ups in as little as 10 days, say UCLA researchers.

Tick Removal
A nurse discovered a safe, easy way to remove ticks where
they automatically withdraw themselves when you follow her
simple instructions. Read this one as it could save you from
some major problems.
Spring is here and the ticks will soon be showing their heads.
Here is a good way to get them off you, your children,
or your pets. Give it a try.
A School Nurse has written the info below--good enough
to share--and it really works!
"I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best
way to remove a tick. This is great because it works in
those places where it's sometimes difficult to get to with
tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of
dark hair, etc."
"Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick
with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few
seconds (15-20); the tick will come out on its own and be
stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.
This technique has worked every time I've used it
(and that was frequently), and it's much less traumatic
for the patient and easier for me.."
Also, if you just pull a tick off, their heads sometimes break off
and are left under the skin so this is much safer. Be aware
also that a tick with a white speck on its back is a Deer
Tick, these can cause Tick Fever so check yourself and
your family good if you see any of these!
"Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this
would be damaging in any way.
Please pass on. Everyone needs this helpful hint.

"Did You Know?" by omgshots.com's photo.
DID YOU KNOW?
What IS The Main Ingredient of WD-40?
Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40?
No Cheating.....
WD-40 ~ Who knew!
I had a neighbor who bought a new pickup.
I got up very early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all
around the sides of this beige truck (for some unknown reason).
I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news.
He was very upset and was trying to figure out what to do....
probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open.
Another neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off.
It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the
truck. I was impressed!
WD-40 who knew?
"Water Displacement #40".
The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect
missile parts.
WD-40 was created in 1953, by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical
Company.
Its name comes from the project that was to find a 'Water Displacement' Compound.
They were finally successful for a formulation, with their fortieth attempt, thus WD-40.
The 'Convair Company' bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts.
Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt
you.
When you read the 'shower door' part, try it.
It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door.
If yours is plastic, it works just as well as on glass.
It's a miracle!
Then try it on your stovetop.
It's now shinier than it's ever been.
You'll be amazed.

CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS
Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any
unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo
cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this?
It is very easy, first take a bunch of parsley or Cilantro ( Coriander Leaves ) and wash it
clean
Then cut it in small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten
minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside
refrigerator to cool.
Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out
of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never
felt before.
Parsley (Cilantro) is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!

Ingredient Substitutions
Sometimes we just run out of ingredients. It happens – but lets not rush back to the shop – have a
look here first and see what you can use instead!!! You might just create something better than the
original – and save dollars by avoiding the shops at the same time (especially with Christmas so
close!!!). Here are the more common ingredients we run out of – we’ll add to them as we hear of
new ones!
Baking Powder:
Baking Powder is a rising agent for cakes and biscuits. To make your own baking powder – mix
together one part bicarb, with two parts cream of tartar.
Breadcrumbs:
Have no breadcrumbs? It’s easy to make your own – just use fresh or day old bread in a food
processor and blend until you reach the required consistency. If you have no bread at all, replace
with cornflakes, rolled oats, oat bran, savoury biscuits such as Jatz or Sao’s, potato chips or even
coconut!
Brown Sugar:
To replace brown sugar use one cup of normal sugar with a tablespoon of golden syrup.
Butter:
Well the most obvious substitute is margarine. Oils can also be used but sparingly – Olive Oil in
particular can affect the taste of what you are trying to make – so judge accordingly. Other
substitutes for butter can include apple sauce, Nuttlex (dairy free). Actually in the health food
section of your supermarket are some wonderful nut replacements – they can be expensive though!
If it’s just for toast in the morning – consider leaving it out altogether – and just enjoy the flavoring
of the topping!
Buttermilk:
Buttermilk is available in the dairy section of your supermarket – but as it expires quickly – its not
something most people have on hand day to day (although it does freeze well so don’t let it go to
waste if you do have it!). To make your own at home, take a normal cup of milk and add two
teaspoons of lemon juice or vinegar and let it stand in a warm place for five minutes. If your out of
milk too, try using sour cream or natural yoghurt.

Condensed Milk:
Condensed milk can be made at home. Combine one cup of powdered milk with 3/4 cup white
sugar and 1/2 cup warm water. Mix until well combined and store in the fridge. Makes the
equivalent of one standard can of milk!
Cream:
Cream can be replaced with evaporated milk (and use some cornflour to thicken if required).
Evaporated milk is great to keep on hand! Another replacement is 3/4 cup of full cream milk and
1/4 cup of butter. If you are making something savoury, sour cream, Greek yoghurt or creamed
cheese makes a great substitute.
Cream of Tartar:
Cream of Tartar can be substituted in really small amounts (1/2 teaspoons) with lemon juice or
white vinegar.
Eggs:
Eggs are tricky and it depends on what you are making. For sweet recipes – one tablespoon of
custard powder per egg works a treat. For a dairy free version try 1 small mashed banana or 1/2 cup
apple sauce (apple sauce is also a great sugar replacement!).
For savoury dishes, try 2 tablespoons of cornflour per egg.
Honey:
Depending on what you are making, golden syrup, treacle or molasses make a good honey
substitute.
Lemon Juice:
If you need a substitute for taste, orange or lime juice make a great substitute. For other uses, use
white vinegar.
Self Raising Flour:
Self Raising Flour can be replaced with Plain Flour with the addition of a two teaspoons of baking
powder per cup of Plain Flour. If you have no Baking Powder – refer to the post above for a
replacement!
Sugar:
White sugar can be replaced with caster sugar. Brown sugar is also a good replacement and will
make the dish you are making richer! Honey is also a good replacement.
See we can substitute where need by – if your really stuck – try a good old fashioned neighbor - it’s
good to get acquainted like the good old days!
Wine
Wine can be substituted with chicken or vegetable stock (for white wine) and beef stock for red
wine.

GREAT INFORMATION !
Drug companies won't like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:
It is found that a mix of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in
most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey as very effective
medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a
plus.Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right
dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Researched by western
scientists:
HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of
jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could
potentially save one from heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack
studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon
honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have
treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose
their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.
ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two
tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily
even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen
University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one
tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that
within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally
relieved of pain -- and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move
around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.
BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of
honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the
bladder....who knew?
CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder
mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the

level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic
patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol-could be cured. According
to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves
complaints of cholesterol.
COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon
lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will
cure most chronic cough, cold, and, clear the sinuses, and it's delicious too!
UPSET STOMACH: Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also is
said to clear stomach ulcers from its root.
GAS: According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is
taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.
IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune
system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that
honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens
the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.
INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before
food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals
INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural 'Ingredient'
which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.
LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests
the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder,
and three cups of boiling water to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It
keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans increase and even a 100 year
old will start performing the chores of a 20-year-old.
RASPY OR SORE THROAT: When throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of
honey and sip until gone. Repeat every three hours until throat is without symptoms.
PIMPLES: Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply
this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it off the next morning with warm
water. When done daily for two weeks, it removes all pimples from the root.
SKIN INFECTIONS:Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected
parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin Infections.
WEIGHT LOSS:Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast and on an empty
stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one
cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person.
Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even
though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER: Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the
stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of
cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder
three times a day for one month.
FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful
rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey
and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done
research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with
cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily
after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases
within a week.
BAD BREATH: People of South America, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon
powder mixed in hot water first thing in the morning so their breath stays fresh
throughout the day.
HEARING LOSS: Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal
parts restores hearing.
Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on

THE ULTIMATE ENERGY DRINK
No it’s not Red Bull; in fact it’s not anything you can buy from a can or a plastic bottle. It
doesn't promise instant energy, mental alertness or a quick fix yet it delivers them all in
abundance. Best of all the ultimate energy drink doesn't contain refined sugar, artificial
sweeteners or caffeine; it’s completely natural, totally healthy, and very affordable.
So what is the ultimate energy drink?
Freshly juiced vegetables and fruit!
The benefits of raw vegetable and fruit juicing go way beyond energy and vitality: They
include elimination of toxic waste from the bowels, efficient uptake of nutrients, loads of
easily accessible vitamins and minerals, and an endless list of long term health benefits.
Fresh juicing has been recognised as an effective cleansing and detoxifying tool for the
last 100 years and has become even more important in a society where our vegetables
and fruits are so much lower in essential nutrients than they used to be.
Juicing removes the fibre portion of the plant, allowing for optimal digestion and
absorption of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other micro nutrients. The
vegetable juice travels from your digestive tract into the blood stream nourishing,
cleansing and healing every area of the body. Juicing also helps to dislodge any toxic
waste which has been built up in the bowls from unhealthy food choices. Best of all it
offers an instant kick of pure energy, and a boost of vitality that can only be found in
consuming live food!
The best time to have a vegetable juice is in the morning before eating anything else. For
the most kick out of your juice have it first thing and drink it within a couple of minutes of
preparation to avoid oxidation. A 200 ml glass of vegetable and fruit juice is enough to
clear the head and sharpen the brain better than any coffee.

Aim to limit using fruit in your juices to minimise fructose overload which can put pressure
on the liver. Use a range of seasonal, pesticide free vegetables.
Try a selection of the following vegetables:
Carrots, celery, spinach, silver beet, cabbage, beetroot, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower,
cucumber, kale.
Add a small amount of one or two of the following:
Mint, lemon, lime, ginger, fennel or any other herb that you enjoy.
Energy juice example: Carrot, apple, lemon and ginger.
If you don’t own a juicer head off to a health or appliance store and grab one, there are a
huge range of juicers available. The less wet the fibre waste, and the less heat involved,
the better the juicer. I recommend an Oscar Juicer which you can buy second hand off
ebay. If these are too expensive George Foreman does a really great little Juicer which
“Knocks out the juice!” for around $50 at Target. Otherwise places like Boost Juice and
health cafe’s can help you out when you’re in a rush.
A fresh juice will boost energy and vitality with the added bonus of bright eyes, great
complexion, and a stronger immune system.
Swap your coffee/Red Bull for a fresh vegetable and fruit juice and cleanse yourself
healthy with the ultimate energy drink!

Twelve Surprising Uses for Vicks VapoRub
1. Decongest Your Chest
The most common use of Vicks is to decongest your chest and throat area. When applied
to the upper chest, it provides excellent relief of cough and congestion symptoms.
2. On Your Tootsies
Applying Vicks to your feet provides nighttime cough relief. Generously rub VapoRub all
over your feet and cover them with socks. Your cough will subside.
3. Achy Breaky Muscles
Vicks relieves sore, overworked muscles. It increases circulation and provides almost
instant aid. Use a generous portion and apply it over the aching area.
4. Get Rid of Nasty Nail Fungus
Rub VapoRub on your toenails if you suspect you have a fungus. Within days, the nail will
turn dark—this means the Vicks is killing the fungus. As your toenail grows out, the dark
part will grow off and you will have fungus-free feet. Keep applying the ointment over a
period of two weeks to fully cleanse nail beds of any remaining bacteria.
5. Stop Your Cat from Scratching
To prevent Miss Kitty from ruining your doors, walls, and windows, apply a small amount
of VapoRub to these areas. Cats detest the smell and will steer clear. Vicks can also be
applied to your arms and legs if your kitty is prone to scratching you.
6. Pet Pee-Pee Deterrent
If your dog or cat is not yet potty trained, put an open bottle of Vicks on the area he or
she likes to mark as their territory. The smell will discourage them from lifting their legs
and wetting your rug.
7. Headaches Be Gone
Rub a small amount of Vicks VapoRub on your temples and forehead to help relieve
headaches. The mentholated scent will release pressure in your head and instantly relieve
pain.
8. Humidify Your Sleep

cut or splinter.

If you get bitten by a tick, apply Vicks immediately. The strong odor might help get the
critter to release itself and stop bugging you.
11. Reek-free Racehorses
Professional racers smother VapoRub under the nostrils of racehorses on race day. The
strong stench deters the stallions from the alluring odor of the female pony and keeps
them focused on the race.
12. Go Away Mosquitoes

clear. If you do get bitten, apply Vicks to the area and cover it with a Band-Aid to relieve
itching.

~~~HOMEMADE AIR FRESHENERS~~~
These gel air fresheners are the perfect project! they take a total of five minutes to make,
are highly economical, and each jar should last you about a month. These would also
make great gifts!
To make these little beauties, you first need heat-proof jars, food coloring, and essential
oil. You can find inexpensive essential oils of various scents at craft stores and some
grocery stores. I chose a raspberry scented oil...it smells delightful!
Into each jar, drop a few drops (I repeat...a few...it doesn't take more than 2 or 3) of food
coloring.
Then, put in about 30 drops of essential oil, give or take. The more essential oil you put
in, the stronger the smell.
Now for the fun part. Gather up 4 envelopes of unflavored gelatin, a tablespoon of salt,
and 2 cups of cold water.
Why salt? Salt (or vodka) apparently help to keep the gel from molding. Interesting fact,
isn't it?!?
Get one cup of water boiling on the stove. When it begins to boil, whisk in the gelatin,
stirring until it's all dissolved.
Then, pour in the other cup of cold water and the salt, stirring until the salt is dissolved.
Quickly pour the hot gelatin mixture in each of your jars, and then use a disposable stick
or spoon to stir it into the oil and food coloring.
Let these gel overnight, and then voila! Air freshener!

Propagate them. Marie this is an ECO~Friendly and $$$ Saving Tip just for you.Hopefully
others will SAVE by asking friends and neighbors for cuttings instead of going out and
paying the ridiculous prices some of the nurseries are asking for rose bushes.
~Cut a piece of rose bush stem 6 to 8 inches long with a sharp, clean knife or pruning
shears. If collecting multiple cuttings, keep them in the shade until you are ready to begin
the next step.
~Cut off the spent blooms, hips and lower leaves. Do not cut the nodes, or eyes, above
the leaves.
~Fill the nursery pot 1/3 full with potting soil and place on a plate or drainage pan.
~Punch a hole 3 inches deep into a healthy potato using a screwdriver.
~Insert the bottom end of the cutting into the potato hole.
~Place inside the nursery pot and cover with soil so that about 3 inches of the cutting
sticks out.
~Place in indirect sunlight and keep surrounding soil moist but well drained for two
months. Transplant into a permanent place outdoors in the spring.

Homemade Tick Repellents For Humans & Dogs...
Ticks can be troublesome outdoor pests, as they feed off the blood of mammals, and can
carry and transfer bacteria and disease such as Lyme disease. Some retail products are
designed to repel ticks, but these are many times high-priced items and no more effective
than a simple homemade solution.
Repellent for Pets
For pets, add 1 cup of water to a spray bottle, followed by 2 cups of distilled white
vinegar. Ticks hate the smell and taste of vinegar, and will be easily be repelled by this
ingredient alone. Then, add two spoonfuls of vegetable or almond oil, which both contain
sulfur (another natural tick repellent). To make a repellent that will also deter fleas, mix in
a few spoonfuls of lemon juice, citrus oil, or peppermint oil, which will all repel ticks and
fleas while also creating a scented repellent.
Spray onto the pet's dry coat, staying away from sensitive areas including eyes, nose,
mouth, and genitals. When outdoors for an extended period, spray this solution on two to
three times per day. When pets are outdoors generally to use the restroom only, spray the
solution onto the animal's coat once per day.
Repellent for Humans
A simple homemade repellent can be made with a few inexpensive household ingredients.
In a spray bottle, mix 2 cups of distilled white vinegar and 1 cup of water. To make a
scented solution so you do not smell like bitter vinegar all day, add 20 drops of your
favorite essential oil or bath oil. Eucalyptus oil is a calm, soothing scent that also works as
a tick repellent, while peppermint and citrus oils give off a strong crisp scent that also
repel ticks.
After mixing the solution, spray onto clothing, skin, and hair before going outdoors.
Reapply every four hours to keep ticks at bay, and examine the skin and hair when
returning home to make sure no ticks are on the body.

According to Jennifer at Diapers, Dirt, etc…each disk should last about a month in a diaper pail. I’m guessing a month is also long enough to leave them in a smelly trashcan or compactor. Then when you are ready to
replace it, take the OLD disk and crumble it into a load of laundry to help deodorize there as well.
Now go forth and make the world a better smelling place to dwell!

MAGIC! Easy way to remove stains, even old ones.
Instructions
1 Combine equal parts ammonia and water, or use Windex. If you use Windex, use clear
or yellow solution. The blue solution should not stain the carpet, but watch it carefully.
2 Heat up an iron to the highest cotton setting.
3 Soak the stain with the solution of your choice. If the stain is large, work in small
sections.
4 Place a white towel on the section you're cleaning. Do not use a colored towel, or the
color may transfer to the carpet.
5 Iron over the towel in ten-second increments. It may take a few applications, but the
spot will be soaked into the towel within minutes. If you don't see the desired effects after
the first three applications of the iron, soak the spot and try again. If it isn't wet enough,
the solution will not come up. A sizzling noise is completely normal when the spot is
saturated.
Tips & Warnings
Do not sit the iron down without moving it, or you will burn the carpet. Keep the iron
moving, even if sticks some. As the liquid is absorbed into the towel, the iron will move
more smoothly.

Share this on your wall so it's saved for future reference!
My pastor's house always had the clearest windows I had ever seen. One day, to learn his
secret, I came over to help with some spring-cleaning chores. Being a do-it-yourself sort
of fellow, he didn't use a single paper towel or commercial cleaning product to clean.
Instead, he mixed 2 cups of hot water with 1/4 cup of vinegar and a tablespoon of
cornstarch.
"The vinegar gets anything off the window," he beamed, proud of his homemade window
cleaner. "But it's that little bit of cornstarch that really gives it the shine!"
After shaking the solution up in a spray bottle and spritzing the windows, we wiped them
down with crumpled newspaper. Unlike paper or cloth towels, newspaper is absorbent
without leaving lint behind. Those windows sparkled in spectacular fashion!
From that day on, I have used this method to clean the windows in my own home. It
works like nothing else and keeps my windows shined to perfection.
Here's what I do.
I mix the 2 cups of hot water in a pitcher with the corn starch first, and then I add the
vinegar last. Then I pour it in the spray bottle and shake it up. And seriously, the
newspaper trick really does work! Streak free every time

Cucumbers are cooler than you think...
“1. Fat busting: Do you ever wonder why women put cucumbers on their eyes to relieve
puffiness? The photochemical in cucumbers makes the collagen in your skin tighten, thus
the lack of puffiness. Did you know that you can rub a cucumber on a problematic spot of
cellulite anywhere on your body to lessen the visibility of it? Did you also know that it has
the same effect on wrinkles? Wow, it makes purchasing those fifty dollar creams seem a
little silly, doesn’t it? You can also rub a little bit under your kiddo’s eyes after a long bout
of crying to avoid that puffy ‘I cried for an hour straight’ look.
2. Defogger: Do you get annoyed when you get out of the shower and you have to fight
the fog on the mirror? Who has time for that when the kids will be awake at any moment?
Try rubbing a slice of cucumber on the mirror before you hop in and not only will you get
a fog-free mirror, but you’ll have a nice smell that will boost your mood.
3. Headaches: If you suffer from headaches from chasing your babies all day, or had a
little too much wine with dinner and want to avoid a hangover, eat half of a cucumber
before bed. Cucumbers are high in B vitamins, sugar, and electrolytes, and they replenish
the nutrients missing in your body to help you avoid a hang over or to beat that headache
that’s been threatening to take over.
4. WD-40 replacement: Did you know you can get rid of a squeak by rubbing a cucumber
on the hinge? Wow, now you don’t have to tear your garage apart looking for that little
can with the red straw, and the baby won’t wake up when you slowly open the nursery
door to check on him.

5. Crayon on the walls: Take an unpeeled cucumber and rub the crayon off of the walls in
the event that your kiddo left you some art. You can also use this technique to erase a
pen mistake.
6. Halitosis killer: Take a slice of cucumber and put it on the roof of your mouth. Hold it
there with your tongue for 30 seconds. The photochemical that you love for cellulite and
puff reduction will also kill the bacteria that is causing your bad breath.
7. Tarnish remover: If you’re finding tarnish on your stainless steel kitchen faucets and
appliances? Rub it off with a cucumber slice. Not only will it remove years of tarnish, it will
leave it streak free and your hands will thank you, and your kids won’t be put at risk from
a dangerous chemical.
8. Energy booster: If you’re feeling tired in the afternoon, don’t give Starbucks your five
bucks. Instead, grab a cucumber. There are just enough carbohydrates and B vitamins to
give you a longer-lasting and healthier boost of energy than soda, coffee, or those health
hazard energy drinks.
9. Munchy madness: Did you know that European trappers ate cucumbers for energy and
to keep from starving to death? If those big burly manly men can eat a cucumber to keep
from starving, you can eat one as a healthy choice when the munchies hit. Slice some up
and take them in a small plastic container to the movies if your theater doesn’t offer
healthy alternatives to munching on butter soaked popcorn.
10. Frugal facial: Slice up a cucumber and boil it in a pot of water. The chemicals inside of
the cucumber will mix with the steam. Remove the pot from heat and lean over it, letting
the steam hit you. Your skin will be more radiant and healthy, and you will feel relaxed
and rejuvenated.
11. Shoe polish: Cut a slice off of your cucumber and rub it on your shoe. It will not only
shine it up, but it will repel water.
12. Pest control: Put three or four slices of cucumber in a small pie tin and place them in
your garden. The chemicals in the cucumber have a reaction that pests hate. You won’t
smell it, but it will drive them from your garden all year long. Replace them periodically.
13. Sunburn: Sometimes sun block doesn’t always protect your little ones from sunburn. If
you have burnt little kiddos you don’t have any aloe, rub some cucumber on them. Many
doctors even use cucumber to treat patients with irritated skin and sunburns.
14. Blood pressure: Cucumber has been long used to treat high blood pressure. If you
have it, add cucumbers to your daily diet. There is also ongoing research into the use of
cucumbers for lowering cholesterol.
15. Constipation remedy: The seeds of a cucumber are a diuretic. If you’re constipated,
try eating a cucumber. If you suffer from chronic constipation, add cucumber to your daily
diet.”

SHARE THIS LADIES!!!!!
I didn't know this, but i sure will remember it now
How can you tell when you are in a room, restroom, motel etc. with a mirror or a 2-way glass?
Here's how: I thought it was quite interesting! And I know in about 30 seconds you're going to do
what I did and find the nearest mirror.
Do you know how to determine if a mirror is 2-way or not? A policewoman who travels all over the
US and gives seminars and techniques for businesswomen passed this on.
When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for
sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way
mirror (i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them)? There have been many cases of people
installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms . It is very difficult to positively identify the
surface by looking at it.
So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?
TWO WAY GLASS IMAGE MIRROR IMAGE
Just conduct this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if
there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is GENUINE mirror.
However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE! IT IS A 2WAY MIRROR!
"No Space, Leave the Place" So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It
doesn't cost you anything.
REMEMBER. No Space, Leave the Place:

Mayo Clinic
How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything beforegoing to
bed because they'll have to get up during the night!!
Heart Attack and Water - I never knew all of this ! Interesting...
Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at
night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell).
When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is
then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last
statement!
I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this
was news to me.
Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!
Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body: 2 glasses of
water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack
I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent
night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake
you up with a Charlie Horse.

Cardiology.
Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one
during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual
happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep
apnea is to blame.
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in
the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest for years, (when it gets old, it
smells like vinegar).
Please read on.
Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know.
Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must
also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating;
however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not
wake up.
However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a
bit of water.
Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.
- Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. - Take a seat on a chair or sofa
near the front door, and wait for their arrival and ....DO NOT LIE DOWN!

2. Apply to your animal just as you would normal shampoo. It is best if you can massage
it into the fur and let sit for 5 minutes.
3. Rinse your animal thoroughly with warm water. Towel dry.

All you need is a package of Mason jars, some cotton string and some liquid citronella

Real interesting! Something I did not know, could come in handy..
I wish when my nephew was badly burned someone had known this.
A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the
barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors
ignited and engulfed him He jumped from his truck, screaming.
His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs and a bowl yelling: "bring me some more
eggs!"
She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks.
The neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites onto the young man's face.
When the ambulance arrived and the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this.
Everyone pointed to the lady in charge.
They congratulated her and said: "You have saved his face."
By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her. His
face was like a baby's skin.
A Healing Miracle for Burns:
Keep in mind this treatment of burns is being included in teaching beginner fireman. First Aid
consists of first spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced which stops the
continued burning of all layers of the skin. Then, spread the egg whites onto the affected area.
One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite of the pain, she ran cold
faucet water on her hand, separated 2 egg whites from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped
her hand in the solution. The whites then dried and formed a protective layer.
She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued during at least one hour
to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the
next day there was hardly a trace of the burn. 10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin
had regained its normal color. The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in
the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.

Fill the washer with HOT water. Add 1 quart of chlorine bleach - no detergent – and let
the machine agitate for a minute, then let it sit for one hour. After one hour, allow the
washer to run through its longest wash and spin cycle. Immediately fill the washer with
HOT water again and add 1 quart distilled white vinegar. Let agitate for a minute, and
again, let it sit for one hour.
Using the bleach and vinegar will clean away bacteria, soap scum and mineral deposits
from the wash basket and hoses. This is especially important if you live in a hard water
area and should be done every three months. Every washer should be cleaned at least
twice per year. While it is soaking, dip a scrubber sponge in the vinegar water and detail
all the nooks and crannies of your washer, including the knobs, the lid and the exterior.
After an hour, run the longest wash and spin cycle again.

WATER
1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for
hunger.
3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as 30%.
4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the
dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease
back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic
math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

IMPORTANT INFO
1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in
about 4 days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor
to the rising increase in osteoporosis.
2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the
Hazardous material place cards reserved for Highly corrosive materials.
3. The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about
20 years!
Now the question is, would you like a glass of water or coke?

CLEAN YOUR MATTRESS
Even if you change your sheets and pillowcases weekly, chances are you haven’t
thought about how to clean a mattress lately. Dust and dust mites accumulate in our
bedding very quickly and can cause anywhere from mild to severe allergic reactions.
Getting rid of dust mites is an ongoing battle and one effective way to fight them is to
keep your mattress and bedding clean. Below are simple steps to help you clean your
mattress on a regular basis
What a great, inexpensive way to clean your mattress! Be sure and share the post so you
can save it to your timeline!
CLEAN YOUR MATTRESS:
Pour about 1 cup of baking soda into a Mason jar & drop in 4 drops of lavender essential
oil. Put on lid & shake jar. Using a kitchen strainer, sprinkle the baking soda mixture all
over the mattress & let it sit for an hour or more. Thoroughly vacuum the mattress. Bye,
bye dust mites, & other nasty things. The baking soda helps draw up any moisture & deep
dirtiness. It deodorizes & leaves the mattress smelling fresh & clean.

*** HOW TO CLEAN YOUR DISHWASHER ***
♥♥♥DON'T LOSE THIS! Tag yourself or "Share" so it is on your
timeline for when you want to make it.♥♥
...
* Place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher.
Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle – except for the cup of
vinegar, the dishwasher needs to be empty.
The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty
odor.
* After using the vinegar to sanitize the inside of the dishwasher, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda
around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short but complete cycle using the hottest
water. The baking soda will help freshen the smell of the dishwasher as well as brighten up the
look of the inside of your appliance by removing stains.
* Now that the dishwasher is clean and running right………here are a few IMPORTANT tips to KEEP
it that way….until the next cleaning. (A routine dishwasher cleaning is a good habit to get into.
And you have to admit…now that you know how it’s done…it’s not that hard.)
*Run the garbage disposal (if you have one) before starting the dishwasher. The dishwasher
drains into the same pipe as your sink, so that drain must be clear.
*Run a bit of hot water in your sink before running the dishwasher. You will get cleaner dishes if
the water starts hot. You can collect the water you run and use it for watering plants or other
purposes. Run the water until what comes out of the tap feels hot.
*Make sure your water starts hot enough. Set the thermostat on your water heater to 120F (50C).
Water that is cooler than this won’t do a good job cleaning. Water that is hotter could scald.
*Run full loads to conserve water and energy, but don’t pack dishes too tightly. Dishwashers wash
dishes by spraying water over them, so the water needs to be able to get to the dishes to clean
them.
*If you are inclined to pre-wash your dishes before you put them in the dishwasher, consider this.
Dishwasher detergent NEEDS a certain amount of grease and dirt in order to do its job. Otherwise,
it actually foams up during the cycle which is not good for your dishwasher.

My friend did this--- WOW-- it works!!!
Ant Killer
What's so cool about this is, it took them 2 minutes to find it and 5 minutes to fill up like the pic !
Wow
1 empty water bottle
(Cut it down to about 2" tall)
5 Tbsp of baking soda
5 Tbsp of sugar
3 Tbsp of water. ( dry works buy I used real sugar.)
The very best way of eliminating ants is truly simple:
Take a small amount of powdered sugar (also called icing sugar) and mix it with an equal amount
of baking soda (formally called sodium bicarbonate)
Powdered sugar is essential. You cannot use the larger grains of sugar for this..
Mix the two powders together and then place small amounts against the walls or other areas
where you would not normally walk but where you would normally see the ants.
The ants will be attracted to the sugar and will eat some of it and collect more to take home to
feed others, so all of them will get their share.
The sugar and baking soda powders are similar in size and, once mixed together, the ants cannot
separate the two items, so, as they eat the sugar, they will also ingest the baking soda, which they
would otherwise never touch. This is the reason for using powdered sugar.
Once the ants eat the baking soda it will react with the formic acid in their stomachs and cause
gas. The bodies of ants are unlike humans and they cannot eliminate gas so it will build up inside
them and cause them to literally explode.
