Born into affluence, Mia Stanley is a winsome socialite with a knack for matchmaking. She's also a writer for Godey's Lady's Book magazine, much to the disdain of her family--and their society friends. A proper young lady of her social standing isn't meant to labor in such a way, but Mia has always had a way with words...
When her writing draws her into the world of downtrodden seamen's wives on Philadelphia's docks, Mia uncovers a scheme that puts her in harm's way. But her heart ends up on the line as well.... Has her determination to always make a match driven away the one man whose esteem she covets?

It is hard to believe that I am coming up on 3 months of the no poo experiment. I have fallen off the wagon now and then. Usually because I was running behind and didn't have time to mix up my solutions. I believe advertisers have successfully brainwashed us to believe that if it doesn't suds up it isn't working. Even now with all I've learned, I still like the feel of lathering up my shampooed head of hair. I'm sure it has to do with 30 plus years of shampooing. Not to mention the wonderful plethora of scented shampoos. I love the smell goods. It's an obsession.
So how do you ignore the craving of suds and fantastic smells?
I've come to a compromise of sorts. I don't feel bad on the days that I do use shampoo. I try to stick to my no shampoo pledge but somedays I give in to the poo. It's there in the shower calling my name.
After coloring my hair I stick to the shampoo and conditioner for a bit before switching back to my baking soda mixture.
Overall, I'm satisfied with the results of the no poo experiment. I'm going to continue to use the method even if I fall off once in a while.
I came across a great recipe on Pinterest a couple months ago for buttery dinner rolls. I needed something to take for Easter dinner and decided that I was going to make the rolls this year. No store bought for us thank you. I was leery about how they'd turn out and if it would be enough since we were having the extended family. The recipe at first glance looked a little overwhelming for a beginner like myself. As I got going though it was pretty simple. The rolls looked store bought and tasted even better. Everyone loved them. They are buttery, flaky goodness.
Today I made a batch for the family. The recipe does make 48 rolls so I decided to add ham and cheese to some of them. Something quick to grab on the way out the door in the morning. We had some for dinner and the rest I put in ziploc bags and froze.
Now we will have homemade rolls whenever we want them.
Check out Howdoesshe.com for the full recipe.
This recipe is great for gatherings or to freeze. No one will believe that you made them. They look THAT good!
I think I'm going to play around with adding things again. The ham and cheese tasted awesome! Maybe I'll try pepperoni and mozzarella. The oldest kiddo suggested bacon. Everything's better with bacon, right?!

These are the best chips... just like the ones at restaurants. Made locally.
10lb Russet potatoes $2.40
Our local produce coop also does eggs. I finally decided to try this out.
$1.20 a dozen. The cage free brown was sold out.
I guess so because I think they were priced at $2.20 a dozen. Seems like a deal to me.
I encourage anyone wanting fresh produce to search for a community coop or bountiful basket program.
For the St Louis area go Here to look for a location near you.
The only downfall for me is I'm super picky. You do not get to pick what you get in your basket. It is usually 50% veggies and 50% fruits. I usually give away what we won't eat or you can easily split a basket with family or friends.
They have lots of great add ons. Many are made locally.

I have had so many people ask me for this recipe. So here's the story.
I had a love affair with Starbuck's Frappucinos and back in my spend thrift days I'd have no problem dropping $5 for one. I also like most Americans am overweight. (ouch.. that hurts to type!)
I discovered The Belly Fat Cure by Jorge Cruise. This book totally clicked for me. It explains how our bodies process sugar and carbs. (My two favorite things!). My Starbuck's Mocha Frappuccino has 79 grams of sugar in a venti along with 83g of carbs. According to Jorge you should "try" to stay at 14g of sugar a day and 120g of carbs. My one drink was 5.64 days worth of sugar and most of my carbs for the day. One drink!!
He has a recipe for a protein shake in the book that I adapted.
Chocolate Whey Protein
Pure Stevia or a Stevia packet
Half and Half
Torani sugarfree syrups (according to taste)
In my blender ball shaker I add approximately 2 cups of coffee. I use whatever my husband left me in the morning.
1 scoop of whey protein
1 scoop stevia or a packet
approximately 2 tablespoons of half and half. I don't measure so much.
Then a shot or two of whatever flavored syrups you like. Cheapest I've found the syrups is at Sams or World Market. Jorge's recipe doesn't call for the syrups but I've discovered my drinks are much better with them. I usually use 1 or 2 squirts of chocolate and caramel.
Shake well. Pour over ice.
You can also use vanilla whey protein.
You can also put all ingredients in a blender with ice for a frappuccino.
The best part is this drink comes in at 2g of sugar and 2g of carbs! What a difference! The protein will help fill you up so you can use this as a meal replacement drink instead of just a drink.
I've lost 15 lbs loosely following his plan. So many are simple swaps.
But don't think this tastes like a DIET! It's amazing! I've had many people tell me it's just as good as Starbucks if not better. Enjoy!!
