When I buy fruit and veggies, I always soak them in a 1:4 ratio of vinegar and water to help remove toxins and pesticides. I leave them soaking for up to an hour, longer with nonorganic apples. At the end of the bath, sometimes you can even see cloudy like stuff in the water from the skins and waxes, and dirt on the bottom. 

good idea ^

THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS MAGICAL IDEA WITH THE WORLD

Also works for fruit fly eggs apparently.

CAUSE I SERIOUSLY NEEDED SOMETHING LIKE THIS WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU GUYS.

Don’t forget that drinking plenty of water and tea, eating a healthy diet and daily exercise will make a HUGE difference with your complexion.  Touching your face frequently is also a big no-no.  Everyone’s skin is different, so experiment with your own treatment routines and find what best suits you!!  I think this is a topic that’s almost taboo to talk about, but everyone has it, so we might as well help each other out with what we’ve found successful, right!?

Flavored Lemonades

I absolutely LOVE lemonades and fresh fruit.  I went to this wonderful cafe, Ms. Dahlia’s Cafe, with one of my best friends in Brooklyn.  I had the best cucumber lemonade in life!  I immediately went on the hunt to find a recipe.  in my search, I came across a great blog, A Beautiful Mess, that has some amazing recipes for lemonades.  I had to share.  So here you go, enjoy, and I WILL POST MY OWN CREATIONS…after the snow melts.

Fortune Cookies

4 egg whites
1 t vanilla extract
1 t almond extract
Zest of an orange or 1/2 t extract
1 c flour sifted
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c water

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Print out self-made fortunes, write them, copy someone else’s, whatever. Cut them out.

Beat egg whites until foamy but NOT to a peak. Just nice and bubbly. Add sugar and beat. Add sifted flour and whisk. Add remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth. You want a runny batter that spreads very easily.

On a silpat on a half sheet pan, drop 6 to 8 dollops of batter about 2 inches apart. Whatever you are comfortable with because you have to move fast. If you don’t, the cookies won’t form because they will harden. Smooth out with the back of a spoon and make as even as possible. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes until edges start browning.

Pull out immediately, put in fortune and fold like a taco pressing the open end. Fold closed end over the edge of a cup and pull the corners down. Put in a muffin tin to keep to form. Repeat. This recipe should make 24-30 fortune cookies.

You can use multiple pans or use one. However, if you’re only using one, be sure to let it cool first. Putting batter on a hot pan will start cooking them before you want them to be cooked.

If you don’t have a silpat, get one. It’s amazing what you can use them for.

Last but not least, turn the oven down to 200 F. Once the oven reaches 200 F place the muffin tin with the cookies in the oven. Bake 30-45 minutes until hardened. If you don’t do this, you will have soft seemingly stale cookies.

Enjoy!
