During the holiday season, decorating has become an important note on our todo list, right after shopping and baking cookies. For my family holidays always called for traveling, and cooking. And this year unfortunately traveling is out, entertaining is out and we are left with cooking, baking, and keeping our family busy, happy, and healthy.
During holidays making ornaments to decorate the Christmas tree became a way to also entertained our guests, specially the younger ones. Nieces and nephews, grandparents, and classmates, will spend time putting together a ginger bread house, or get crafty and make ornaments, to keep or give as gifts. This year with a smaller number (no guests ) we are still planning on making paper garlands, and ornaments, decorating, baking, thinking of our family, friends, and just be thankful and grateful during the holiday season.💕

Two amazingly beautiful fall fruits that not many of us have enjoyed eating them.
They are both covered in a thick outer skin that protects the beautiful seeds in the pomegranate,and the sweet some what chewy inside of a persimmon, making them some what puzzling as to how to cut into one. Both fruits are packed with nutrients, and are used in making sauces or are dried for use in cooking.
I have made a video on how to cut and enjoy these beautiful fruits. Please click to watch, and subscribe for more videos 👍😁and please leave your comments, I love to read your feedbacks. https://youtu.be/6ILzotaZbPo
This is a fun project that my family actually loves to work on without complaining. It is part of setting our table for our family before sitting down to give thanks for all the wonderful goodness around us.
This year we are setting a smaller table, but the work is still there, and we need place cards to be clear who is sitting where. Yes for the three of us !! Our fun project started with gathering our supplies. We get creative and try to be colorful, interesting, and unique.
Please watch my video for more photos on how to make fun, natural, beautiful place cards with your family👍 Have a wonderful, safe holiday season💕
We can add more flavor, and color to the turkey platter with herbs, fruits, dry fruits, edible flowers, and yummy vegtables. Decorating the platter can be really fun for the little ones in your family too.
This is a great breakfast sandwich and snack. I often make this sandwich and cut it in small pieces for mid day snack. The best pear for this sandwich is Bartlett pear. You need a juicy one so it will add more moisture to the peanut spread.
A slice or two of sour dough or your favorite bread, to top your sandwich, or an open face sandwich. Chunky or smooth peanut butter, and very thin slices of pear over lapping each slice on the peanut butter spread. That is it😋 simple, healthy, yummy.👍
These little guys are so good for us, and with a little help can become everyone’s favorite vegetable. It is not a age thing, it just how you take the smell and the texture of these cute round cabbage looking vegetables.
A fall vegetable, Brussels sprouts are from the cabbage family and packed with nutrients. As I have learned from years of preparing them, I believe fresh ones taste much better than frozen ones. I use salt and cheese to sautéed them and serve them immediately or sautéed them with glazed balsamic vinegar.
Rich in antioxidants High in fiber Packed with vitamin C & K Reduce inflammation Regulates blood sugar
Please watch my video on how to prepare and cook a delicious side dish with Brussels sprouts 💕
Natural Scents from flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruits can help us to remember a moment in time, and can also help us to change the way we feel and think.
For me every time I peel a cucumber I can’t help, but to think Of summer days when my Mom would prepare a cucumber salad for us to enjoy with our lunch, just like the scent of ginger and molasses, will always remind me of Christmas cookies we bake every year for Santa.
Certain scents can also make us feel anxious, and restless, as some can help us to calm our thought, and help us to slow down and relax. To be aware of our surroundings, and change the way our emotions are altered simply by smelling an orange or relaxing in a bath with few drops of rose water is a wonderful way to claim and secure our happiness. Nature gives us its seasonal scents with the change in temperate and the seasonal vegetation. It is up to us to be aware and use the natural scents that can help with our physical and mental happiness.
