My 10 Favorite Things from Vermont

When I think of organic, natural and quality products two states come to mind, Oregon and  Vermont. My hubby is from Vermont and before meeting him I thought all cheddar cheese was orange. [Read more…]

We all scream for easy homemade organic ice cream!

Happy Wednesday! It has been hot and humid the last couple of weeks in southern California. So to stay cool, I’ve been making meals that require little to no heat and we’ve been using our Frogg Toggs chilly pads towels.

I don’t know about you, but after dinner I like dessert, so when I found this recipe from SparkPeople I had to try it. We have a fancy ice cream maker so Little Pumpkin Doodle thought it was strange when I told her that we were making ice cream in a blender.  I made some changes to the recipe, but it’s essentially the same and tastes more like soft serve ice cream.

The Laundress Delicate Wash Soap-Is it a scam?

Dry cleaning is one of my least favorite things to pay for, not only do I know it’s bad for my clothing and the environment; it’s so darn expensive. Being that I work in a corporate environment I have a lot of clothing that is dry clean only. So after reading an article from Big Green Purse , I knew I had to find a dry cleaning alternative and ordered  The Laundress Delicate Wash soap.

The company set out to eliminate the need for expensive dry cleaning with toxic chemicals and the two Fiber Science, Textile & Apparel Cornell educated women created The Laundress.

I ordered it four months ago and have been very hesitant to try it. I really don’t have an excuse, except that since it’s been so hot, I’ve tried to only wear cotton.  [Read more…]

Mommy’s Organics “Endangered Species” Applesauce Muffins

 Hope you had a nice weekend! We have been busy the last couple of weeks.  Little Pumpkin Doodle was hit by accident in the eye at day care.  She’s doing fine now;  I was worried she’d have a scar, but I’m happy to say that I think she’ll end up scar free. Then two weekends ago we were is L.A. to visit Hubby’s brother that was visiting from the Big Apple.

We watched the olympics off and on this past weekend. We let Little Pumpkin Doodle watch the opening ceremony, but she lost interest very quickly, as did I. What did you think of the opening ceremony?  However, I thought the part with Daniel Craig/James Bond taking the Queen to the Olympic stadium was hilarious! [Read more…]

Where to find “Green Eco-friendly” party supplies

Little Pumpkin Doodle is what I like to call a girly girl with grit. She plays with her dump trucks while wearing her tutu. We spend a lot of time at our local tractor museum, and anytime we are in the car, she’s quick to point out different types of mechanical equipment. I’d like to fancy myself as a girly girl with grit, but I know my closest friends would just categorize me as a girly girl.
