Weekend Links

Homemade foaming facial cleanser… the recipe I’ve been using and loving. I shared my tutorial this week on Simple Homemade.

Links I loved this week:

 The Christmas Conundrum @ Jen Hatmaker (this just needed to be said. Go Jen. Hat tip to Red and Honey for linking to this post.)

Misleading Product Roundup: Don’t Be Fooled @ 100 Days of Real Food (Lisa does a fantastic job revealing products that you might think are ok- – and that’s what the food industry wants you to think– but they aren’t. Are any of them in your kitchen?)

Why I need the neediness of my kids @ Inspired to Action

Squash and Parmesan Crustless Mini Quiches @ Simple Bites

maple vanilla pecan pie with sprouted spelt crust @ Nourished Kitchen (drooling all over my keyboard…)

All kids have special needs @ Simple Homeschool (I couldn’t agree more. Jamie, you knocked it out of the park with this one.)

And, perhaps the best thing you’ll read all month… the Compassion Bloggers trip to Peru. You can read all of the blog posts here. Take the time to read at least some of them. You won’t regret it.

This week…

What I made: Brilliantly pink icing on chocolate cupcakes for my daughter’s 8th birthday. The pink icing? Not a speck of food dye. I was so pleased with them!

What I’m buying: A rainbow palette of playsilks for my children’s Christmas presents. I can’t wait to see their delight as they find creative ways to use them.

What’s coming up: Remember that incredible ebook bundle a few weeks back, with $300 of ebooks for just $29? Well it’s coming back, on Cyber Monday! And? It’s even better than before. Just you wait. :)

Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving celebration!

Are you or your family struggling with health challenges? Is it time to make some changes? Maybe you already know that you WANT to do things differently in your home -- use better products, buy real, wholesome foods, prepare more from-scratch meals, even use home remedies instead of medication when you're sick. But do you have all the tools you need to make it happen?

That's why we created the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. We spent months searching for the very best, most practical healthy living resources we could find, like real food recipes (we have some for gluten & grain free, too), DIY tutorials for home and beauty, solid nutrition information, home remedies, essential oil courses and books, workouts for moms, meal planning help and more. The entire package is worth over $1000, but our whole goal is to make it totally affordable for anyone. At just $30, it's cheaper than a doctor's visit, filling a prescription, or even eating dinner as a family out at a restaurant!

To make it more of a no-brainer, we partnered up with 10 natural living sponsors who are offering you over $200 in free bonuses that you can redeem, just because you bought a bundle. And to say a special "thank you!" to my readers who buy through this site, I've got an extra special webinar that I want to invite you to.

The one catch? It's available for just a few more hours! It should have already ended, but since so many awesome readers tried to grab it yesterday and our site crashed for a little bit, we're extending it and giving you just until Tuesday at 12:00 noon PST (3pm EST), Sept.16th. So you don't to wait! Click here to learn more about what's in this year's phenomenal package and then pick one up for yourself. You'll be glad you did!

  1. I love the food dye free icing!! What’s the trick?

  2. Thanks so much for the link to Simple Homeschool, Stephanie!!

    • You’re so welcome, Jamie. I really appreciated what you said. I don’t love all of the special needs labels, and I think that it’s so important to recognize that every child (and parent!) has their quirks and different needs, and especially that we aren’t required to “fix” anyone or bear that burden. Wise words, my friend. :)

  3. How do you make the icing? I have a friend whose son is allergic to red dye, and she would LOVE this!

  4. holy typos! nursing at keyboard here :)
