    Recipe #33563

    Want baby smooth skin? Try this intoxicating skin exfoliant!

    Recipe #46074

    I have been using this for years don't know why I never thought of posting it here on the site earlier, this really works and works very well! no chemicals 100% natural and will remove dust and dirt and kill any little bugs and bacteria not to mention it costs only pennies to make and when used as a soak it will help preserve your veggies so that they will last quite a lot longer --- there is really no servings to this recipe so of coarse the serving amount is only estimated --- because of the fresh lemon juice any unused spray may be refrigerated until used again, I just usually use up the 1 cup and then discard the rest --- the exact amounts do not really matter a little more will not hurt, I really don't even bother to measure I just eyeball everything --- if you are using a smaller bowl then reduce the vinegar to 2 tablespoons and salt to 1 tablespoon it will work just as well :)

    Recipe #300387

    A great and inexpensive substitute to commercial cleaners.

    Recipe #93273

    A wonderful dirt cheap alternative to buying a $5 bottle of Febreze. This version is about 5 cents to make and the scent is much nicer too. I use it all the time.

    This mixture is just as good if not better then those little packets you get when you buy cut flower. Add this to you home grown cut flowers to enjoy indoors.

    This natural method dries out the rash very quickly. Hope you have a quick recovery! I have to give this credit to Nancy a client of mine. She uses it and swears by it. Make sure you wash clothes and shoes as soon as possible. To relieve itchy skin whatever it may be, give it a try.

    Recipe #128233

    This method is nothing short of a miracle to clean kitchen hood filters. Non-toxic and cheap, cheap, cheap! The only problem you should have is finding the right vessel. I used a roasting pan, but maybe using a disposable aluminum pan would work. Add the soda at the beginning to the cool water so it doesn't fizz and overflow. As embarrassing as it may be for me to show how bad mine were, note the differences. The foremost filter in the picture is one that's been cleaned by this method.

    This is great for sinks, showers and even hands. My husband fixed our roof and his hands were full of tar. He used this and the tar "melted off!" He said it was better than the hand cleaner mechanics use to get the oil off their hands! It shines my stainless steel sink, it doesn't scratch my stovetop and it is awesome on the tub. Best of all it is easy and cheap! I found it on a make your own cleaner website and it works!

    Recipe #85197

    This is a miracle recipe for getting rid of those pesty ants that come every spring and summer. Mix up the solution, pack cotton balls in a jar cover, and put the solution on and they will be gone.

    Recipe #203233

    Don't buy the tablets, use whats in your pantry! Glitter and tie-dyed eggs too! Use in recipe #153466 to make Cascarones. Cook time is drying time. Safe and natural for those of you who eat them easter morning!

    Recipe #160383

    A dry herb blend for giving any ground meat a "sausage" flavoring. Try this not only with ground pork, but also ground turkey, beef, or chicken. Adapted from a recipe that came with one of my pizza pans. Recipe can be doubled, tripled, etc as needed. Each batch is enough to season 1 pound of meat. Leave out the crushed red pepper flakes for milder sausage.

    This is how my Lebaneese in-laws make delicious yogurt at home. It's really easy, and much cheaper than buying it in the store. You can make as much or little as you like- we usually do a gasllon at a time.

    Recipe #226102

    This recipe is a good excuse to go antique shopping for an oven-proof, lidded bean crock. You can also use a lidded Dutch Oven. Fabulous beans--a real crowd pleaser.

    Recipe #284981

    After experimenting with many different spice combinations over the years for me this is the closest to the store-bought package taco seasoning --- I always increase this recipe 10x and keep in a glass jar tightly covered in my fridge to have ready for recipes, if you like lots of heat then adjust the cayenne pepper to taste or you may omit completely, if you can find some dried granulated tomato powder then add about 1-2 teaspoons with the mix, I purchase mine at a bulk spice store it really gives the seasoning a lift, the amounts stated are equivalent to one package taco seasoning mix -- don't save this mix to use only for tacos, add some in your recipes to kick up the flavor, it's even great in chili, ground beef mixture for casseroles, stew, soups, and add some into you hamburger mixture for burgers, I even add this to my Parmesan meatballs --- this also makes a great gift for the cook on your list just increase amounts and present in a fancy glass jar.
