A month ago, I requested that my husband make me a bookshelf to display my most favorite cookbooks for my little corner in the kitchen. Yesterday he put it together as a Mother's Day gift!
And I was surprised by a lovely handmade card:
I will leave you with a humorous article, written by my brother, The 12 Most Terrifying Things Ever Invented for Babies. Some of those inventions are unreal! Number 12 is especially sad to me, since today there are still bizarre practices with child birth, in my opinion! Someday I hope people can look back and say, "What you were drugged and kept in a bed with your feet up to have a baby?"

This was my purchase from Vitacost. Stocking up on healthy vegan food! If you would like to give Vitacost a try you can get $10 off your order of $30 or more here.
I LOVE this coconut oil. It has a nice coconut flavor and makes amazing, light, fluffy, not so healthy, frosting!
And my indoor garden! I am growing these in our windows. I have lettuce, spinach, basil, peppers, and green beans.

My most recent thrift store find...
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
My mom thinks I completely lost my mind. Recently I discovered I could make my own coconut milk. I found myself frequently buying coconut milk for use in baking, but I wanted to get away from the canned coconut milk. Not only to save money, also to avoid too many canned foods (BPA in cans), and canned coconut milk has guar gum. So I headed over to Nature's Best and found some shredded coconut. I used a 1:1 ratio of hot water and shredded coconut and I was even able to repeat the process over a couple more times (the next couple batches may become a little more watered down). I used my leftover coconut pulp, dehydrated it in the oven and turned it into coconut flour. Jessica at Delicious Obsessions goes into more detail on homemade coconut milk.
Almost a year ago my husband and I started our first vegetable garden. Fresh and local produce is important to me, but we are on a tight budget. Last night I came across this awesome video on a family whose entire garden is edible. And the amazing part, the garden looks beautiful!
