Coffee, not just for drinking.

Baby threw up on the couch? Last night's party got out of hand? Cover the stinky stain area with instant coffee to get rid of the odor. It eliminates it COMPLETELY! Be careful however, coffee might stain certain fabrics, especially the light colored ones, so test beforehand.

Goddamn Winter Itch!

I know, I know... it's only the middle of September, but my skin chose to ignore that. Woke up with itchy dry skin; arms and legs especially. Time to initiate the skin hydrating [and softening] regime... which is Johnson's baby oil gel w/ aloe vera & vitamin E.

Shower, soap, rinse and add a dime size drop of the oil gel on your loofah with the water running. apply to arms, legs, stomach, back etc... pat dry. Your skin will be a bit greasy for 5 minutes, then smooth and soft!


Fun Way to Eat Those Healthy Carrots.

My fiancee was hungry and I had nothing in my fridge except for carrots. So I came up with this quick recipe for a fun breakfast or snack.

Serves 2

You'll need: two medium carrots, salt, bread crumbs, a bit of onion, one egg, olive oil.

Clean, peel and shred the carrots. Chop the onion. Mix together in a bowl, add salt, add egg. Mix. Preheat one table spoon of olive oil on a frying pan. When hot, place small "clump" of carrot batter onto the pan. Wait approx a minute, then flip and fry the other side. Should take about 2 minutes. Serve warm! Yum!
