This all natural recipe will have your home smelling like all the comforting scents of the Fall season with very little effort. Once it starts simmering it takes several hours for it to waft through your whole house, but once it does... it smells so great! You can make this either in a small crock-pot or on your stove top.

Homemade Cajun Seasoning

Homemade Cajun Seasoning

Cajun seasoning is generally a blend of 8 to 10 herbs & spices. It's extremely versatile easy to make & tastes so much better than commercially made Cajun seasoning you buy in the supermarket. Don't let the name fool you, Cajun seasoning can be used in many recipes such as soups, stews, sauces, dips, condiments & more. Use it on fish, meat, vegetables, mix it into ground beef for a great hamburger seasoning & it makes a great BBQ or blackening rub. When looking for ways to add Cajun seasoning to your repertoire, think about any dish in which you would use garlic & paprika.

Avocado Crema

Avocado Crema

The question is... what can't you use this on? It's so great as a topping/garnish on all Mexican Dishes like Tacos, Chili, Burritos, Huevos Rancheros & so on. I use it on my Loaded Mexican Hot Dogs along with mustard (see recipe in the Sandwiches category). I also love it on scrambled eggs, it gives them a scrumptious creaminess... I'm sure you'll love it!

Herbal Teas for Colds & Flu

When you're sick with a cold or the flu, it's extremely important that you stay hydrated. Drinking a lot of tea will help with that, as well as helping to flush the virus out of your system. Herbal teas are especially beneficial for the role they play in making you feel better, suppressing your symptoms & may even shorten the duration of your cold or flu. These 2 teas are the ones I depend on when I'm sick, I highly recommend them & they taste great too!

Basil Ranch Dressing

Basil Ranch Dressing

It's so much healthier for you & your family when you make your own salad dressings. Not only will you eliminate all the additives found in commercially prepared dressings, but you also have full control over the quality of the ingredients. I think you'll find this one especially tasty!
