Whoa it's been a busy few weeks. I've been working on some health things, interviewing practitioners to hopefully work with my son (and maybe me), and doing the dreaded taxes. Dreaded for sure.

Since my family and I started working on improving our health, we've done different alternative or natural remedies that I never thought we would do. One of them is a castor oil pack.

No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Nests

Easter is of course about so much more than candy, but inevitably, sweet treats can be a big part of the celebrations. One of my all time favorite Easter treats used to be the Cadbury Chocolate Eggs.  Not the large filled ones, but the small chocolate ones.  You can see loads of sugar-laden homemade nests filled with those eggs on Pinterest.  I love them, but the sugar and artificial food colors ...Read The Full Post
