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...]
Thought I would share the last couple of days with you. At the top are peaches from grandpa’s house, Little Pumpkin Doodle and I taking a self-portrait, Pinterest fun for kids and organic homemade condensed milk for our homemade organic easy ice cream recipe.
Since we had so many peaches from our visit to grandpa’s last week, we made Cinnamon Peach Crisps. We prepared the crisps in the late afternoon and baked them in the evening after 7pm to conserve energy. They were sinfully perfect with our homemade ice cream. It was our first time baking with a mason jar and it turned out great.
Don’t forget I’ll be updating the Mommy’s Organics site about once a week while our site get’s a makeover.

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.

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...]
