Hack Attack...


Laundry Soap - I made my own

Yes, this is the mess I made making my own Laundry Soap... It didn't take long at all.

This is my recipe:

1 Bar Zote Soap
1 Bar Fells Naptha Soap
* shred in the food processor, this is about 6 cups
2 Cups Borax
2 Cups Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
* Shred it all up together into a finer powder and you are done!

Use 2 Table Spoons per load.
My whites came out WHITER!

CP Soap Batch #2 - Vanilla Cinnamon Poppyseed Swirl

This is soap batch #2:
Vanilla - for the sent
Cinnamon - for the color
Poppyseed - for texture/exfoliation
Swirl - for making it really pretty!

This the first time I have tried coloring, and additive and swirling.
"They" say only try one new thing at a time.
I figured I could handle adding a little cinnamon AND making swirls.
I think I read that the color of the soap may change as it cures.
I hope it gets darker.

Ahhhh... and the lovely mess left behind. Just like baking!

My "M's" boss back from Paris

My boss "M" at "M's" came back from Paris today... well came back to work from being in Paris for the past week. She brought back the **sweetest** treat!

Macaroons from Laduree!
Evidently they are famous for their macaroons.
They decorate cakes with them and have a "champagne and macaroon bar" to boot!

The flavors were/are as follows:
Red: Raspberry *so amazing*
Brown1: Chocolate
Brown2: Chocolate
(I'm sure they were different chocolates but both equally amazing)
Yellow: Lemon
Cream: Vanilla
Turquoise: Lavender... yes I said Lavender. I did not finish this one. I can't eat lavender. lol

Who knew that Macaroons were so amazing?
Now I know!
