    Anything but Boring Nielsen-Massey Vanillas #nielsenmassey

    Yummy to Try via @ElsieCake

    Buttermilk Pie, makes one. 3 eggs 2/3 cup sugar 1/2 cup honey (I used this kind, it’s amazing!) 2 tablespoons flour 1 cup buttermilk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Whisk the eggs with the sugar and honey. Now stir in the other ingredients and pour into your favorite pie crust (mine’s store bought—hence the “halfway homemade”). Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes until the sides are golden brown and the pie is set (it will still have a slight jiggle in the center). Allow to fully cool before serving.

    Winter Giveaway: @FixMySkin Balms

    A healing balm with 1% Hydrocortisone to treat dry skin, chapped lips, psoriasis, insect bites, eczema and more. I was so excited to try this new product called Fix My Skin because that exactly what it does. I am such a picker when it comes to my skin and I always end up with some some scratches, dry skin or chapped lips. The 1% that is magic is the hydro-cortisone  The combination of the waxes and hydro-cortisone makes it convenient and does not melt. It comes in a very faint vanilla and also flavorless. If you want to try one of these, send a tweet @heydoyou saying hook me up with @fixmyskin Winners…
