“Food Lover Arts and Craft Addicted ”
I have been really looking forward to actually making this scrub because it’s edible; I sometimes like to make gifts that kids can enjoy and I think this is one they would love to make (they can eat it and get a good scrub ). I know I find that when I make homemade scrubs they smell so good I always want to taste it as well, but of course essential oils are not meant to eat.
I have many moments when I was a child I would just eat my little heart out. I guess I will call them my “greedy” moments. When I was a little girl my mom use to always make sugar scrubs she would also buy homemade ones and they smelled so good. I would always find my way into the tub just to get my hand on a jar of scrub; just so I was able to lick and eat every sweet crystal from the jar. It was a good thing to me I always stayed clean and also go to eat sweets as I was getting clean ( excuses).
I used the recipe from my pretty in pink sugar scrub; the measurements are a little different. I also added 2 tbsp. of orange peel,1 tbsp. of orange extract( no essential oils), and food 10 drops of orange food coloring .

Ok this is my last no bake recipe, wait no this will be my last Lara bar recipe for a while! It is pretty warm (108) so I am trying not to turn the oven on but you know the 4th of July is coming up and I plan on doing a lot of baking. I am a very festive person I love to get in the spirit; I guess growing up not celebrating any holidays will make you go all out every chance you get.
I must get back to the Lara bars! I never have any almonds I always forget when I get to the grocery store, and food looks better with lots of color; so I decided to add pink dye to the bars to give them a little flare! It worked out great before I realized it, I was eating more then I should have and thought about going for a run. I decided to add shredded coconut to the bars and I am beginning to wonder if coconut is a nut, a seed, or just a fat. I have no clue if anyone could let me in on the truth about this interesting fat I will be the happiest women alive (literally)!
Ok! Ok! Let’s get to the recipe, but before I do make sure you like me on face book and follow me on pintrest I will be doing a giveaway soon!
I had all weekend to make this recipe but never got to it because of the other 50 million things I decided to do; I am a procrastinator when it comes to these types of things but I try to get it done. Of course country mouse decides to tell me at the last minute he needed a snack for work, so I had no choice but to go ahead and make them.

I love my food processor but I am thinking it may be time to get a blender; I’ve always believe you do not need a blender to make great smoothies (I think I may have been wrong about that one).
I went over a friend’s house for catch up and she made smoothies in her blender with spinach; there were no bits and pieces of spinach leftover it blended perfectly. I realized at that moment it may be time for me to just give in and purchase a blender.
Maybe when I make smoothies and slushies I will not have any ice left over in the glass that I half to fish out. I still love my food processor and still get great smoothies…
I have been asking my sister for the past few weeks what does she want for her birthday. I keep getting the same answer, and I just keep asking her because we both know I am not getting her an Ipad. She can be such a diva.
I guess this time she is going to stand her ground because she think I will cave but when she sees her care package she will know who won this war.
This year she will half to suffer with one of my homemade gifts! I am happy that she is such a girly girl (true diva) that way I can send her care package with whistles and bows. I am sure my little diva will love this body scrub when it makes it to her…
I have been munching on a lot of raw snacks and no bake treats. I would love to get in the kitchen and bake but not in this heat, 75 degrees has been our “low” here in the valley of the sun with no relief in sight.
I ran out of medjool dates so I decided to do some experimenting with raisins; I would recommend medjools if you have any but if not raisins will give this treat a very tart and tangy flavor…
