Quick Tip

Not enough time to plug in the iron? That’s no excuse for wrinkled clothing! Pull out your hair dryer and give them a blast (while on your body). It only takes a moment and although it isn’t as perfect as an iron, it gets out most of the wrinkles for a more presentable look.


Salt for Acne? A Beauty Experiment

During my teenage years I was blessed with clear skin but unfortunately, now in my mid 20’s I cannot say the same. Since going off birth control 18 months ago I have been battling with acne and plainly, it sucks! Just when I think my skin is starting to look great BAM! up pop a couple of those nasty red bumps.

Blender Cheesecake

I made this super quick and simple dessert for Easter Dinner on Sunday and it was a hit as usual. Unfortunately I did not think to take a picture. My family has been making this recipe since I was a kid and the best things about it is that it is low in sugar and you don’t have to bake it. It is called blender cheesecake but it is actually more like mousse.

Blender Cheesecake

1 cup Graham wafer crumbs (I used gluten free of course)
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
1/2 cup boiling water
1 package light jello
500g 1% cottage cheese
1 liter light cool whip (softened)

Combine crumbs and butter/marg and press into 8 inch round pan. Chill for 20 minutes or so until set. Pour hot water and jello into blender and blend until crystals have dissolved; cool until luke warm. Gradually add cottage cheese, blending until no curds are visible. Add cool whip and blend or stir until smooth. Pour mixture over crumb crust and chill in fridge until set.

This is also a great make ahead dessert, make it a day or even two before you plan to eat it.

I’m still kickin’

Appologies for my lack of posts. I seem to have fallen behind on life in general and am playing catch up. I have a huge to do list including cooking my first Turkey this weekend. I do have some posts storming in my brain, that I will put into words for you ASAP!
