Coconut Milk Rice Pudding


I am a big fan of rice pudding. I think I developed the liking of this tasty dessert when I spent a year in Scotland. I say that because no one else in my family likes it so I never really had it as a young kid. Although it is one of my favorites I don't do milk well so I always have to eat is sparingly. Until now!! I had accidentally made too much rice the other night while making stuffed peppers. I didn't want to waste the leftover rice so I took to the Pinterest world and discovered that coconut milk works just as well as milk.

Lavendar Detox Bath


I am not a big fan of baths. I think its due to the fact that I have never had a good tub to partake in this relaxing activity. Being cramped in a little bath tub is not relaxing, so to make a bath worthwhile I try and do some type of detox when I do take one. I have finally run out of some packets that I had from Arbonne and decided to do some searching for a DIY version. I didn't have to look far to find tons of recipes. I settled on a recipe that for me was simple, cheap, and quick.

DIY Blackhead Mask


One thing that I can't stand about my face are blackheads! They drive me crazy so I am constantly looking for ways to try and reduce the appearance. I had seen a pin on GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment and I fell in love with it. However, I don't have $50 to spend on a beauty product. That pin though led me to do some research on DIY Blackhead Masks and after some trial and error found one that I liked!

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce


I have always wanted to make my own spaghetti sauce but looked at it as this all day process. I don't have time for that! After a bit of research I realized that I could make my own sauce as I needed it. I didn't have to get into the whole canning and peeling and all day in the kitchen thing. I was thrilled! Taking the basics I made my own simple spaghetti sauce. There are only eight ingredients total. So, if you are tired of buying jar sauce her is a great solution.

Thrifty Thursday #2

I know I know it's been forever since I last posted. The move was a lot more frustrating than it should have been. We still do not have internet so this post is coming to you via cell phone. For that apologize I do t have any fun graphics to go with this post. It is Thursday though so that means it's time for my Thrifty Thursday post!
