I love creating in the kitchen whether its food or homemade skin care. Over the weekend I had some fun experimenting with the ingredients for a Turmeric Face Mask.
Turmeric Face Mask
1 table spoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon turmeric
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 squeezed lemon
Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Apply heavy to skin. Leave on for 15 minutes. Your skin will turn a tint of yellow so afterwards give your face a light wash with your cleanser and apply your face and eye cream as usual.
Your skin will feel totally smooth and fresh.
Above is my amazing Hungarian Mushroom Soup. Being that I have Hungarian blood running through my veins I thought it was perfect to share. This cozy soup came in extra handy for lunch today being that it was snowing here in New Jersey. Below I hand wrote the full recipe. If you try making this or any of my other dishes please comment.

Our 9 year old Jack Russell Sasha is the absolute best. She has never gave me any feeling that she would snap on Our 14 month old Jameson. However she has her corks as all dogs do. I had purchased in he past the Our K-9 Bark Collar when I was pregnant to control her barking. It worked to a degree. Now the issue has become that she has a problem with certain toys that Jameson plays with. I chose to purchase the Altman Dog Training Collar that comes with a remote. Day 1 and it has her shook. It has 3 options of beeping, vibrating and shocking. I will only use the shock option as a last resort. The vibration is doing the job as of right now. Every time she goes after a toy I hit the button and she bails. I have confidence that being consistent we can nip this behavior problem in the butt.
I’m a huge fan of a traditional Grilled Chicken Caesar salad. However, on my meatless journey I can still enjoy some of my delicious favs by replacing proteins. Above is a Kale Caesar salad with roasted chic peas. Roasting chic peas in super simple. Toss them in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread on a foil lined baking sheet and roast in the over on 400 for about 20-25 minutes. If you’re into flavor, add some chili powder, garlic powder or other seasoning to your liking. This is definitely what I’m having for lunch today.
I am always on the go. Everything seems rushed especially after becoming a mom. My newest recipe for Sweet Potato & Quinoa Balls are kid friendly as well. Jameson loved them just as much as I did. They are perfect to snack on or make a meal out of. Check out my Recipe Page for details.
Here I’m using 5ld dumbbells in a sequence of arm exercises that can be done with in the gym or at home. I usually do 10-15 reps 4x each. Depending on your fitness goals you can go heavier in weight with less reps to bulk and build or lighter in weight with more reps to lean and tone.
