I made gingerbread scented body butter. It’s wonderful! Lightly scented, I really only smell the cinnamon but I think it’s awesome!!
Friday I made a lard/olive oil soap, Oatmeal, Milk & Honey scented. I was fearful it was not going to set, glad to see I was so wrong!! They turned out so pretty! I think I am going to make another batch but scented different!

I saw a recipe for lentils and liked most of it, minus the soy sauce, but adding a few more ingredients. It was called Canal House Lentils recipe, but I made it my own. Sauté leeks (that are chopped how you like and cleaned well), minced garlic, and chopped mushrooms in butter. After about 5 … Continue reading Lentils recipe…my way
This is something else I will be making soon but for myself. Lavender will not be in my mix, Sandalwood most likely won’t either.
