Lets keep all natural people!!
Following some reader suggestions, I have decided to share some natural cleaning products that I use in my home. Most of the ingredients, you will probably already have but perhaps for a different purpose. Nothing I share with you today is any harder than grabbing a bottle of chemical off of the supermarket shelf. In fact, if you were to pop to the shop just for that washing up liquid – this is a million times easier! The hardest thing here is boiling a pan of water – I think you guys can manage that!
Not only are these cleaning solutions super easy, they are incredibly cheap. I purchased a 1kg bag of soapnuts from Amazon in May for less than £10 and I’ve probably used 1/16th of the bag. Honestly, they go amazingly far! The same shells can be used 4 times and then they still have life in…

Get in on a few more BBQ picnics with this BBQ sauce. Agave BBQ Sauce
Sauce made with olive oil, onions, fresh garlic, tomato sauce, agave syrup, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and salt & pepper.
I have to say this was my first time making my very own sauce. The reason I probably had so much fun making it is because it was so interesting to me that I wasn’t using an actual BOTTLE of sauce from the store for the first time ever.
Skinless, boneless chicken breasts covered in sauce.
I used a recipe from the Dr. Oz show but I only made the chicken part of it—not the ribs. It was one of the simplest things I could have made.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, try making your own sauces from scratch. Give it a whirl.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Some homemade sauces actually taste much better than store-bought.
This is a cool and easy salad and a nice change from the traditional salad. Try it!
It has been extremely hot in my house lately so I’ve been reluctant to turn anything on in the kitchen. I generally don’t care for salads because it leaves me hungry most of the time. But because of the weather, I made an exception. I paired this salad with a slice of Savory Ham Cheese and Olive Cake (recipe to come soon) and it was the perfect light meal for us. The cucumber and tomatoes combined tasted so refreshing that I’m beginning to have second thoughts about salads. Have stellar Tuesday!
