If you frequent food blogs at all, then you are undoubtedly familiar with the latest vegan marshmallow/meringue phenomenon.
Chickpea brine, bean juice, or ‘aquafaba’ all refer to the liquid found in a can of garbanzo beans. This typically discarded substance is now being ‘fluffed’ into the aforementioned desserts. This discovery is seriously revolutionary, given that these recipes have required the use of eggs, up until this point, and food bloggers are going nuts over it, creating anything and everything from marshmallow cream to fluffernutter cookies.
My most recent recipe for Tahini-Free Hummus expounds on the trend in a savory way, allowing you to create a smooth and creamy hummus, sans copious amounts of oil.
Before Sam was born, I invested in this baby carrier to aid with any trips outside of the house, and it has been a lifesaver!
We make frequent trips to grocery stores and the like, and this has made life soooooo much easier! It’s easy to wear, easy to put on, and my sweet boy always falls right to sleep in it.
If you’re in the market for a baby carrier, I highly recommend it!
3. Coconut Oil Miracle
More baby stuff!…
Our little boy came out with a mild case of baby acne, which probably bothered me more than anyone, given my history of skin issues, so after googling natural remedies for it, I came across multiple sites that said to rub coconut oil on it.
I literally saw a difference in his skin within minutes of doing so! This almost never happens when I try a natural solution for a problem, so it was so refreshing to see something actually be effective!
I have continued using it daily, and his skin has only improved, making for one happy mama. 😀
4. DIY Exfoliating Mask
When I lay out in the sun more, my skin tends to dry out easily, leaving it looking rather dull…womp, womp, haha.
In an effort to (once again) find a natural remedy for it, I found this awesome exfoliating mask.
My skin was dewy soft after using it, so I’ve incorporated into my weekly regime. If you’re into natural skin care (Dawn, I’m talking to you girl!), you must give it a try, as it’s cheap, natural, AND effective!
5. How to Make Eggplant Taste Delicious
Friday Finds is all about what I’m currently into, and I’m currently loving eggplant!
Prior to recent weeks, I would buy eggplant with the intention of making it, but for some reason, it would end up going bad, so I recently my hand at eggplant chips.
While the chips flopped (they were either burnt or not crisp), the ‘not crisp’ slices were really enjoyable!
I just brush both sides of the thin slices with olive oil, give them a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and bake them for about 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees.
The eggplant slices soak up that oil, and they literally just melt in your mouth!
