Coco-Caffeinated Skin So Soft!

I am a HUGE believer in Coconut oil. Cook with it, bake with it, but also use it on your hair and body!

Today I am going to share one of my favorite secrets to Skin care.

You will not believe how simple, easy and effective this little morsel of info is.



You will need ; Depending on how much you want to use. It can go bad if you don’t use it all in about a month, but trust me… you will use it up!

1 Jar (I up-cycle my Wal-mart salsa jars, they are great mason jars:)

1  to 1 -1/2 Cups left over coffee grounds

2-4  tbps Coconut oil – (if for some CRAZY reason you don’t have CCO in your possession, you can use Olive oil)

1-3 drops essential oils (optional)

In a clean jar or container combine the coffee grounds and essential oil if you are using it. I  personally LOVE the smell of coffee so I keep mine simple.

Add in the coconut oil. It will be a bit clumpy but that’s ok because when you are in the shower and scoop the mixture out it will begin to melt as you apply it.  Wash, Shave etc first, Now scrub! The coffee exfoliates as well as reduces cellulite (so I have read) the coconut oil then has the opportunity to penetrate and moisturize your skin. You will emerge from the shower smelling like heaven and feeling like silk!

Be sure of a couple things….if you use glass in the shower, PLEASE be careful, 2: Be sure to clean any remaining slipperiness off the bottom of your tub or shower as well as the coffee grounds that do tend to find their way all over your shower if you’re doing it right:) 3: Be careful because EVERYONE will want to touch your amazing soft and radiant skin! OOH LA LA, LA LA LA LA LA

Memory Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

My Grandma (maternal) used to make cabbage rolls for my Dad when I was a kid. My Dad was always so happy when she did! After she passed my mom began making them for him. I had not thought about cabbage rolls in a very long time until I came across this HUGE amazing cabbage at my little local market.

I bought it and brought it home and stared at it for a while thinking…what was I thinking?? This thing is humongous! What am I going to do with it.

Then it hit me…I would make cabbage rolls for my husband! Pretty sure he was not going to be as excited as my Dad was, but all the same he was getting some!



Start with about 12 large cabbage rolls

1 lb of ground beef, turkey raw(or vegetarian you can use morning star or something similar)

1 – 1/2 cups cooked rice

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 – 15 zo can tomato sauce

1 small can tomato paste

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

salt, pepper, onion salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350

Remove the center veins from the cabbage leaves by cutting them out in a “V” shape and leaving the leaf whole.  Immerse the leaves, 2-4 at a time, into boiling water for 3-5 minutes, or until limp.  Drain well on a paper towel.

In a mixing bowl combine the meat, rice and seasonings, mushrooms, 1/2 cup of the cheese and 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce mixed with 1/2 can of the paste.



Scoop out a large tablespoon or more if your leaves are as HUGE as mine were, into each dry leaf and start by rolling in the sides then roll from one end to the other until all side are “tucked in”.

Use another 1/4 of the tomato sauce to cover the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch pan. then lay the rolled up rolls on top.


Pour remaining mixture of sauce and paste over the top and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 350* for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for another 15 until done!



Let me know if you Dad, Husband , Wife,  Kids etc… like these!

Check out my Beach Body page too! There are only 101 days to Summer as of today March 11th, 2013!!

Egg, Bacon and Cheese Cup!

I made these guys for a pre-gaming Super Bowl Breakfast and served them with Bloody Mary’s!


Here is what you will need


1 12 cup muffin tin

12 – 18 slices of bacon

6-8 eggs

1/4 cup butter (optional, however they make for a richer more flavorful scramble)

1 cup of shredded cheese ( your choice)

Himalayan Sea Salt

Black pepper

1 cup spinach leaves (optional)

First spray cooking spray in the muffin tins. Next line each tin with a strip or two if need be of bacon.  In a bowl, mix up the eggs, butter, salt and pepper (here you can add other spices if you choose)


Put the spinach at the bottom of the tin if you’re using it, then pour the egg mixture in the cup, (not to the top) then sprinkle cheese on top.



Bake at 350 for 30 -35 minutes or until your bacon is cooked the way you like! If you want you could always precook the bacon in the tins a bit first before pouring in the egg mixture if you like really crispy bacon!

Once they are done they are easy to remove and set on a paper towel to drain any excess grease.

I am telling you your family will love these little guys. Easy to grab and run with out the door an were even good the next day heated up!

DIY Coffee Creamer

I am usually  a black coffee drinker but after a few way to many cups during the day I have to add some creamer. My husband likes creamer and sugar! He likes Irish cream (yeah the “real” stuff as well and calls it his “Happy Coffee”) I saw a this recipe on pintrest …

so I had to try it!


One change I did make was to use NON fat sweetened condensed milk.

Heres what you need:

14 oz  Milk ( Some people like Non- fat some 1% etc… you pick!)

14 oz  Sweetened Condensed milk ( in the picture is regular but I have since been making it with the fat-free) (Wal-mart carries it…about$1.00)

Flavor – I used vanilla extract but you can use any flavor you like. (You can even use the latte’ stand stuff like Torani or D’Vinci.)

1  14 -16 oz. container ( mason jar, or I like to re-use my Wal-mart salsa jar like in the picture…its perfect and has the measurements on the side:)



Just poor in the milk, then the Sweetened milk then stir…check it you might not want any flavor in it:)


This creamer is addicting! My husband is in LOVE with it and I find the jar almost empty all the time, but since the ingredients are pretty cheap and certainly cheaper than store bought creamer… and it s so easy and quick I don’t mind a bit!
