Roasted Pork Loin Recipe & The Spice Lab Review

spicelab_bundle002

We try to cook most of our meals at home. It's more cost-efficient than going out, it's healthier, and we tend to spend more time together while in the kitchen, and around the table. Having a teenage daughter that is vegan can also limit our restaurant choices. We recently received the above group of products from The Spice Lab to review. Though, I haven't had the chance as of yet to try very … [Read more...]

Lightspeed Outdoors Bahia Quick Shelter Review

IMG_20160406_191032

We recently took a family vacation to Venice, Florida to celebrate spring break. It's been years since we spent time in such a sunny state. The last time we were there, our daughter was on the beach and got a pretty bad sun burn on the first day of the trip. Kind of putting a damper on the rest of her vacation. This year, we went prepared. We asked Lightspeed Outdoors for a Bahia Quick Shelter to … [Read more...]

UHoo_logo_126

Having three pets in the house means we spend a lot of time cleaning. More than half of our cleaning time is spent fighting pet odor. The last thing we want is our home to be filled with an unclean feeling or odor. What we didn't know until recently, is that the products we have been using to clean and cover up the pet odors, are actually more harmful to our family's health than the odors we are … [Read more...]

Affordable DIY 4-ingredient Tangerine Sugar Scrub

scrub_16_003

This is a basic four ingredient, affordable sugar scrub that is great on your hands and feet. There really isn't a better natural exfoliate than sugar (white or brown). A natural scrub does not have to be expensive. In-fact I've paid good money in the past and ended up with a salt base scrub that felt nice while I used it, but the effects actual tore and dried out my skin. Never … [Read more...]

An update on Roxy, and our holistic approach to cancer

12063176_764257450387811_392437808_n

A few months ago we found out that our sweet basset hound, Roxy, a.k.a Foxy Roxy has cancer. She has at-least five tumors, two of them have been pretty fast growing. Due to her age (11), breed and one of the larger tumors being unable to be removed, we made the hard decision to not put her through surgery or any other harsh treatments. It would just feel wrong, and selfish at this point in her … [Read more...]

Raita Yogurt Savory Dips, Review & Giveaway

There was many a celebration at work where a … [Read more...]

Home Products that Make the Air Toxic

Having two beautiful cats, and one princess of a basset hound as part of our family I tend to use a lot of cleaning products and air fresheners to be sure our house always looks, feels and smells clean.
