How to Make Basil Butter {Infarrantly Creative!}

1 Comment

Happy Friday!!!  There is nothing better than Fridays, right?! :)

Today, my buddy, Beckie from Infarrantly Creative, is here sharing a quick and delicious recipe.  Yum!

Check out this throwback picture from 2011!  We were actually at Blissdom 2010 together, but didn’t know each other as well.

I love my blogging buddies so much!!

Blissdom 2011

*********************

Hey guys I am Beckie from Infarrantly Creative. Traci and I go back at least 5 years ago! We met back at a blogging conference, that no longer exists, called Blissdom. She has been a dear blogging friend and I always enjoy the time that I get to spend with her each year at different events and conferences.

Basil is probably one of the easiest herbs to grow. With a little sunshine and water it sprouts fast and can easily take over your garden if not given haircuts every now and again. I am absolutely in love with basil. I have grown a whole planter box of basil this year. With all the rain we have had in the Midwest it has grown like wildfire. So in addition to making pesto and bruschetta I have made basil butter. This basil butter is great to have on hand to spread on bread, season vegetables, fish, chicken and pasta.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups of basil leaves

2 sticks of salted butter

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon of Garlic Salt

1/8 teaspoon of ground pepper

1/4 teaspoon of Penzey’s season salt

Half Pint Ball Jars

1. Wash basil leaves well and measure out 1 1/2 cups of loosely packed leaves. Put in your food processor and pulse until finely chopped.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend until smooth. Now feel free to veer from the spices I used and throw in what you like. You really can’t mess this recipe up!

basil_butter_recipe

3. Spoon the mixture into a half pint Ball jar and give to a friend.

This must be kept in the refrigerator or freezer. You could also scoop them into balls and flash freeze them and then place in a container for perfect portion size. I think this would make an excellent hostess gift don’t you?

Still have more basil to use? Check out my Basil Parmesan Orzo Recipe here.

S’mores Dip Recipe! {Mom 4 Real}

Leave a Comment

2013-11-08 18.02.48      I am so excited to have one of my Kentucky buddies here with us today!  

Jessica from Mom 4 Real!  I actually met Jessica for the first time on my way to Utah for the SNAP! conference.   We’ve been friends ever since, and I love when I get to spend time with her.  (which is not often enough!)

She is sharing a S’mores recipe with us, and I bet she didn’t even know that S’mores are like my very, very favorite thing to eat EVER!  

This dip looks  AMAZING!!

 

 

 

 

 

**********************************************

ooey-gooey-Smores-Dip-Recipe

Hey, y’all! I’m Jess from Mom 4 Real. Like Traci, I am a Kentucky gal! While Traci is spending time with her sweet family, I am going to share one of my new favorite things ever with you. My plan was to share a S’mores Bar with you, but since we have had constant rain here in KY for the past two weeks, we are moving the party inside so to speak. We usually set up all the fixins to make s’mores outside, but my sweet niece showed me this super cool S’mores Dip last week, so I decided to make it and share with you!Hersheys-Smores

First, you will need to preheat your oven to 450 degrees Farenheit. Next, grab a pie pan, cast iron skillet or casserole dish and butter the bottom and edges. place chocolate all over the bottom of the pan. I used Hershey’s bars because they are my fave, but you could totally use chocolate chips.

Marshmallow-Smores

Next, cover with marshmallows. Again, it’s all up to you which marshmallows you use. I had these flat ones on hand, but you could use regular marshmallows or even mini ones. Just cover most of the chocolate. It’s okay if some peeks through. Now place in the oven with the light on.

Homemade-Smores-Dip

After a few minutes, take a look at the tops of the marshmallows. Once they brown on top, pull the dish out of your oven.

Smores-Dip-Recipe

That’s it, friends! Now it’s time to dig in! I am serving mine with graham crackers…but again, whatever you like…cookies, oreos, whatever…go nuts! You will want to serve and eat this while it is still warm, because once it cools, the marshmallows get really sticky and the chocolate hardens. We just wrap what we don’t eat and warm in the oven or microwave later!

Happy dipping!

Healing Body Butter {with Essential Oils}

22 Comments

We interrupt this regularly scheduled series, Organize Your Heart and Home, to bring you this special announcement about Healing Body Butter!

Today, I am sticking an extra post into my day because I am participating in an awesome series with 7 other wonderful ladies called Healthy Living, Healthy Home!

YL Series Logo

Once a month for the next three months, we will be sharing how we use Young Living Essential Oils in our homes to promote healthy living for our families.

You can check out all of the other wonderful posts by clicking on the links at the bottom of this post.  

AND be sure to read to the bottom of the post to enter to win the Thieves Premium Starter Kit!  

thieves giveaway

But first, I want to show you this easy Healing Body Butter I made with my essential oils. 

 diy-healing-body-butter

 

Why did I make my own body butter?  Maybe this will help explain…

What-Toxic-Chemicals-Is-Your-Body-Absorbing-Infographic

source

Over the past year, I have been amazed at all I have learned about the terrible toxins we are putting in our bodies everyday.  Learning about how to use essential oils in my home has helped me get on the right track, although I still have a long way to go.  There is so much more I have to learn, but I know I am headed in the right direction.  

I am slowly taking baby steps to rid my home of things that are harmful to me and my children. 

Besides my faith, I think teaching my children how to naturally care for their bodies is one of the best gifts I can give them.  And it is my prayer that they will pass it down to their children, my grandchildren.  What a blessing it would be to see future generations not have to deal with some of the terrible health problems our generation has endure because of the harmful things we have put on and in our bodies. 

I was super excited about making this body butter!  My hands are so chapped and dry from this cold weather that they sting all day.  I wanted something natural and safe that I could use on my skin.

This Healing Body Butter is soooo easy to make!

healing body butter

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup raw shea butter

2 oz. of sweet almond oil

10 drops Lavender essential oil

10 drops Cedarwood essential oil

(Or you can substitute the essential oil of your choice.)

*I only recommend Young Living Essential Oils.  They are the best!

 

Steps:

1.  In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the coconut oil and shea butter together.  Stir.

2.  Remove from heat and pour in a mixing bowl.

3.  Set mixing bowl in refrigerator for about an hour or more (depends on how cold your fridge is,) or until the mixture is semi-solid.  (You don’t want it to harden completely back up.)

4.  Remove from refrigerator and begin mixing it in an electric mixer on a low speed.  

5.  Add sweet almond oil slowly to mixture.

6.  Increase speed of mixer to high.  

7.  Add Essential Oils.

8.  Whip mixture for about 10 minutes until super light and fluffy.

9.  Divide body butter into containers of choice. 

ENJOY!!!

 

I used Lavender essential oil because “it has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations.”

I used Cedarwood essential oil because it “has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It is relaxing and soothing when used for massage, and has long been used as a beneficial ingredient in cosmetic preparations for oily skin.”

I’ve used this healing body butter on my hands for only a day, and I cannot believe how smooth my hands already feel.  Yay!
