Most of my journey has, of course, included food. It’s actually one of the basics. So I thought I would share with you the things I have eaten, and in most cases am still eating.

Although I’m not a chef, I do love to cook. Most of the recipes here will be ones I have recreated from others, and some are my own creations.

Also, I’ve included some of my favorite Homemade Personal Care recipes and some Homemade Cleaning products to help save time and money.

What’s here is definitely incomplete. This part of the site will be under construction all along, so I would advise you to come back often to see what’s been added.

Just click the link to go to any recipe you need.
