Grilled Pizza- The Best Recipe for the Grill

Grilled Pizza is one of the easiest things to make.Nothing beats the smoky flavor of pizza crust topped with cheese & your favorite toppings.

To me, summertime SCREAMS Grilled Pizza Season!  What is better than relaxing on the deck or patio with friends and family, all the while cooking an easy meal on grill?  Nothing! Grilled Pizza (The Best Recipe) is one of the easiest things to make.  Nothing beats the slightly smoky, grilled flavor of a flaky pizza crust topped with cheese and any of your favorite toppings.  Make it what you want. The possibilities are endless.  I love a plain pizza topped with fire-roasted tomato sauce, fresh cheese, and fresh oregano.  Another great thing about grilled pizza is that the kitchen doesn’t get hot!  TOTAL BONUS! So don’t hold back.  Get grilling, get your toppings on, and ENJOY!  (more…)

Camping Naturally with Essential Oils

Camping naturally with Essential Oils allows you to enjoy the outdoors in its purest form. Stay nuisance free, clean, and sanitized NATURALLY!

Summer is here. That means that camping season has arrived! If you’re like my family, you’ll be spending sometime enjoying yourself this summer on a camping trip. Those trips can vary from campsites equipped with a full array of amenities, to those that are primitive and have none. We just bought a slide in truck camper last year, so our trips are mostly primitive, minus the amenities we’ll have contained in when I call our “turtle shell” :).  That leaves me with the task of creating my own amenities.   My favorite way of camping is to venture into remote and secluded spots to fully enjoy nature and take in the beauty it has to offer.  Having essential oils and natural products on hand to use while camping only enhances and supports the reason why I am out there in the first place! I am the type of gal who doesn’t care one bit about how dirty I get, but I really enjoy being able to get clean at the end of the day.  Here are a bunch of different ways that you can enjoy camping naturally with essential oils, nuisance free, all while being able to get clean! 🙂

DIY Natural “Stay Away” Spray…Non-toxic, Non-Sticky

This DIY Natural "Stay Away" Spray helps you avoid a healthy dose of DEET! Enjoy this non-toxic, safe blend to enjoy the outdoors. Safe for kids and dogs.

 

Summer is here! The only thing I hate more than the bugs themselves, is the feel and the smell of commercial bug spray!  Gross! I decided to make my own so that I didn’t get a nice toxic dose of DEET.  I used safe ingredients that were already in my closet.  I used Young Living Essential Oils to create an aroma that bugs dislike.  Bugs such as mosquitos, black flies, and biting gnats hate the delicious smell of lavender, peppermint, and Purification (a special Young Living Oil blend).  Citronella is one of the oils in Purification, and it has been proven to be a bug repellent.  I LOVE that after I use this DIY Natural “Stay Away” Spray, I smell wonderful, and that I don’t feel the need to HAVE to shower to remove the spray when going inside for the day.

Yum

Is there anything better to do then to bake Dark Chocolate Covered Baked Banana Donuts when you have to use up some bananas before they go bad???  NO WAY!  What a great excuse to make something so good!   Dark chocolate and bananas are the perfect marriage of flavors. Not overly sweet, but full and rich with flavor, these donuts allow you to dive into dessert with a little less guilt. Made with relatively minimal sugar, a blend of whole wheat flour, and coconut oil, I consider these gems to be a “healthier dessert!”  They are sure easy to make, and take only about 25 minutes from start to finish to prepare!  (more…)

DIY All-Natural Toothpaste for Dogs

This DIY Natural Dog Toothpaste is all natural and effective. It is SAFE and free of synthetic-chemicals, colors, and additives that commercial ones have.

If you have a dog, you know that their breath can be SO bad! There have been times that Dexter has sent me running in the other direction after breathing on me, gasping for fresh air.  Why is the case? Dogs have the same issues as humans when it comes to their mouths.  If the plaque, tarter, and bad bacteria aren’t cleaned out of their mouth often regularly, tooth decay, bad breath, and a number of other problems can present themselves.  I have made this DIY Natural Dog Toothpaste to use with Dexter.  I wanted to use an all natural paste that was effective without allowing him to ingest the ones sold commercially These are usually laden with synthetic-chemicals, colors, and additives. In fact, the last tube of doggie toothpaste contained about 20 ingredients, some of which I couldn’t pronounce the names of.   In about 3 minutes flat, I whipped up a batch of this DIY Natural Toothpaste. Everyday (I like to say everyday but in reality- every few days) I “brush” Dexter’s teeth to help them stay pearly white, and to not scare me away with his breath. 🙂 (more…)

The other day, I was at a farm stand and had one of best peaches I have ever had in my life.  It was perfectly ripe, sweet, and had the best texture.  Ever since then, I feel that I have become obsessed with peaches.  I think about them often, and try to incorporate them into every dish I have made since. 😊 Some were successful, some ….not so much.  Today I will share with you one of the VERY successful desserts I made using perfect, fresh peaches.  These Peach Cobbler Cupcakes are SO YUMMY!   As always, I try to keep my recipes a bit more healthy than not, and this recipe is no exception!  With a relatively small amount of sugar, light unsweetened coconut milk as the liquid, and coconut oil as a healthy fat, these Healthier Peach Cobbler Cupcakes top the charts!   (more…)
