Hey ya’ll. Okay, so your girl has gone a little nuts with the DIY. I have so many DIY projects going on that my head is spinning! I will be posting recipes in the coming weeks, but I’ve already made (all-natural) chapstick, lip balm, mouthwash, and an all-purpose cleaner. Over time I will be making jewelry, hand soap, dishwasher soap, dish soap, pillows, and much more! Right now in the kitchen I am preparing homemade paneer tikka masala (my husband and I’s favorite Indian dish), a bubbly fruit drink, and almond milk. I’ve posted pics below of these things. I must give credit to a book and a website that have been wonderful resources: Natural Beauty For All Seasons and As always, I try to put my own spin on most recipes and that I find so I am using a lot of my own creativity. I’m sure that my husband (and child) think that I am nuts because of my constant running from store to store, mixing unknown things in the kitchen, and researching. But they love me anyway:)

Homemade all-natural flavored water (1 can of tonic water, 6 slices each of lime, lemon, and orange, plus water)

Almonds soaking for almond milk (this is non-dairy, all you need is almonds, water, a food processor, cheesecloth, and spices)

Paneer tikka masala (I’ll just throw this in the oven, boil up some rice, and bam a homemade Indian meal)
