When I can find easy home remedies that can cut out both expensive purchases and chemicals, I am all about giving them a whirl. This is a great time of year for making rose water because the sun can do the distilling process for you.

Blackened Cod Fish Tacos with Homemade Vegan Coleslaw

On warm summer evenings I find myself seeking out light fresh meals for dinner. One of my go to meals is fish tacos and this summer I started combining it with a coleslaw recipe I found this spring. With a daughter allergic to eggs, a husband with high cholesterol, and dairy less than agreeable with me I often find myself turning to vegan recipes to check all the boxes. These recipes are not without failures, but the coleslaw is a winner. It adds both a creaminess and a crunch that goes well with the flakey Cod.  This is a quick...

Here’s why:    If clothes last longer, ultimately we will learn the age old lesson about the difference between cost and price: price is what you pay today, cost is what you spend over time.

MAGIC

MAGIC. I am not talking about a magician making the Statue of Liberty disappear or “sawing” a person in half. I am talking about the trade show that happens twice a year in the glitzy town of Las Vegas.  This was my first year of attending. I brought my trusty “assistant” my husband, Tony.  We were only there for two nights, we stayed at the Bellagio...baller, I know. Ok, back to the show... MAGIC is a little bit of a girls dream and nightmare all wrapped into one big package. You have a million vendors to choose from, which makes...
