Ever since I had my first experience with a full afternoon tea, I've been hooked. It's essentially sandwiches that are fairly easy to put together but made fancy with good ingredients a little crust removal and fancy cuts. And of course scones and dessert. What's not to like? This orange cranberry scone recipe with orange clotted cream is a quick modification of the recipe at http://amp.timeinc.net/myrecipes/recipe/best-ever-scones?source=dam to make it easier and not require a special past...

With as cold and dry of a winter that we have had so far, who isn't suffering from dry, itchy skin?

 

If you are, there's a way to soothe your skin and keep it moisturized that is completely natural and free of chemicals and helps keep your skin smooth and beautiful.

 

This salve does wonders for eczema as well and worked so much better than any steroidal cream or eczema cream that my son's dermatologist and allergist gave us to clear up his severe eczema.  His dermatologist was blown away by t...

Our family tried this awesome, healthy recipe for dessert after dinner this week.  It was a HUGE hit even with our company, one of whom does not like Grapefruit!

 

The cinnamon essential oil and honey mixture takes the sour bite out of the fruit, and to my pleasant surprise, it doesn't make the grapefruit overly sweet.  It's a perfect balance, and the fruit melts in your mouth!

 Give your immune system a boost and enjoy this tasty treat!
