We have had a great summer so far not many hot hot days – but I see it is going to be above 90 the next few days.  I am happy I have this Popsicle Mold set from #Lebice.  Not only does the set come with the molds but with a funnel, brush to clean it and recipes.  I like to make my own Popsicle because I can put in them what I like.  One of my favorite is frozen juices with fruit in them – like cranberry juice with raspberries or blueberries.  They are so refreshing!

I like having the funnel so that I can make my Popsicle with no mess and great if the kids are helping you. It’s great having the kids in the kitchen making something healthy and something they will love because they helped make them.

The recipe book is good if you can’t think of something.  I just ask the kids what they like and we add it to juice and freeze.  The Popsicle are a nice size.  The molds are are BPA Free, dishwasher safe, and FDA approved.

If you would like to buy your own set you can buy them below from Amazon.com.

Don’t you hate getting older? My birthday is coming up and I will be 53!  I don’t know where the years have gone.  One of the things about getting older that we all hate is how our face and skin look.  Recently I started using New York Biology Retinol Moisturizer w Hyaluronic #newyorkbiology.

The Retinol cream uses all natural antioxidants like green tea and wheat germ that help to prevent damage due to chemicals and environmental exposure. I like that the cream helps fight wrinkles and dark spots that you get when you are older.  New York Biology Retinol will increases collagen production and may be involved in building elastin, both of which help to make your skin firm and smooth.

I use this Retinol Moisturizer with Hyaluronic twice a day – both in the morning and at night.  You don’t need much and my skin loves it!  It soaks up the product and leaves my skin soft feeling.  It doesn’t look shiny or feel greasy.

If you would like to purchase New York Biology Retinol Moisturizer with Hyaluronic you can do so below from Amazon.com

Want to look, feel and think more beautifully? We called upon several experts in dermatology, longevity, psychology and even plastic surgery to bring you 10 unexpected things to consider adding to your beauty bucket list. They are…

1. Only drink water for 30 days. Imagine the benefits to your skin, hair, nails and overall body when you cut out sugars, caffeine, alcohol, and anything artificial and go straight H20. Dr. Christopher Calapai D.O. anti aging and stem cell specialist says, “be sure to drink pure water and if it gets boring add lemon, lime, or blueberries. Within the first week you will notice skin that is plump, glowing, clear and soft. By the second week people will take notice asking what you have done. The difference, for those who stick to a water only beverage plan for 30 days is astounding.”

2. Ditch all facial products for a month. Look at your bathroom countertop and drawers. Product overload is common. Perhaps you bought into the promises of one product then jumped to another and another. Clear the clutter and clear your skin. Dr. Kally Papantoniou a board certified dermatologist in New York urges people to get rid of old expired skincare products and get back to basics. Using a simple non comedogenic facial cleanser and a moisturizer with SPF each day for a month will allow the skin to heal itself and return to a natural state. After 2 weeks of a simplified skincare regimen you may see fewer and less intense breakouts, less dryness or less oil.

3. Change your hair color and style. It’s quite common for women to drastically change their hair after a break-up but why wait for an emotional upheaval? Have long hair? Try a pixie cut! Have a short brown bob? Go blonde! Dr. Sanam Hafeez, NYC based licensed neuropsychologist and teaching faculty member at the prestigious Columbia University Teacher’s College, explains that our hair is a huge part of our identity. “When we really want a change in our lives, the fastest way to shift your mind towards forward progression is to alter our appearance in a major way. The best part with experimenting with hair is that it can grow back and you can enjoy different styles during the grow out process.”

4. Give the girls a lift or go smaller!  Dr. John Zannis a board certified plastic surgeon from North Carolina, says that breast augmentation done to mothers who breastfed multiple children is a game changer. “These women come in to see me feeling as if their breasts don’t match their zest for life. They want them lifted and fuller and back to what they were before breastfeeding.” Further women whose smaller frame can’t handle large breasts leading to back and neck strain and even nerve damage can benefit from breast reduction. “Breast reduction changes lives. I have seen it in my practice. Women feel free going from an F cup to a full B. No more neck aches and shoulder pain not to mention bra straps digging into skin.”

5. Learn to meditate. Want to appear 5 – 10 years younger within a month? Start meditating. Studies have shown that people who meditate are more optimistic, more calm and able to remain focused. They seem to breathe more deeply and have this general vibe of self-awareness. People who meditate know how to declutter their minds of worrisome thoughts that only perpetuate accelerated aging and illness. Dr. Hafeez encourages her patients to meditate by engaging all 5 senses. “When we sit or lay still and focus on our breathing and immediate surroundings we become fully present.”

6. Get a skin check up, head to toe by a pro. People mistakenly think that total body skin screenings are for the pale and cancer prone. This is not the case. Even people who never burn in the sun should have a check up. “There are places where precancerous moles like to hide such as in the scalp, behind ears, in-between toes and under nails,” explains Dr. Papantoniou. “It’s always good to be safe and get moles and other growths looked at as we age.”

7. Get it “fixed.” Maybe you broke your nose playing soccer at 14 and it never healed right affecting your breathing not to mention making a common cold a catastrophe. Now that you’re an adult and your facial bones have settled into place consider a nose job. Dr. Zannis, warns that a broken nose can complicate breathing which can lead to sleep apnea and a host of other sinus issues. “Most of the time it’s not only a cosmetic issue it goes deeper than that. It’s important that the functionality of the nose is a priority. Many of my cases have experienced an injury to their nose which not only affected the appearance but their breathing.”

8. Buy a luxurious bathrobe. Admit it those robes found at spas and 5 star hotels are comfortable, really really, really comfortable. It’s amazing how something so simple can really make you feel so beautiful. “Adding a touch of luxury to your life is a kind way to pamper yourself. Women of all shapes and sizes have body issues so if it feels great to wrap your body in a plush terry cloth robe go for it!, offers Dr. Hafeez.

9. Go back to bedtime. When we sleep our body repairs itself. When we are overworked, over worried and sleep deprived our bodies don’t have the time to regenerate. This leads to a slower metabolism, poor organ function and sallow, wrinkled skin. “As we age we need a set bedtime and wake-time. The sleep cycle is pivotal for cellular turnover. New mothers often see more wrinkles and a difference in skin texture and radiance because they are awakened several times during the night,” offers Dr. Calapai. Ideally adults need between 6 and 8 hours of sleep each night.

10. Get those earlobes repaired! From the most simple ear lobe repair for a torn ear lobe, to the more complex repair of ear gauges, you can now have your ear lobe back. Dr. Papantoniou offers this procedure in office, with local anesthesia and stitches that are dissolvable. “The ear heals very quickly and scars are minimal. The ear can be re-pierced 2-3 months after having the repair surgery,” she explains.

How many of these great types will you try in August?  There are a number that I want to do. Regardless of where you are on your beauty journey of life know that how we feel matters most and feeling good from the inside always makes the outside more healthy, vibrant and beautiful.

Veganism is something that has boomed in popularity in recent years. This is primarily due to many of us wanting to be kinder to the environment and more compassionate towards animals. Vegan’s make the conscious decision not to consume any animal based products. This includes meat, fish, eggs and dairy products. It can be an incredibly rewarding lifestyle change. But it can take some getting used to in the beginning. Especially if you enjoy baking. Many people think that because vegans are not able to eat eggs or dairy, they are unable to enjoy the pleasure of baking. But this is a very incorrect misconception. While eggs, milk and butter are all crucial elements in baking, there are ways to bake without them. This might sound tricky, but it’s a lot easier than you probably realise. You just need to know what to replace them with. So if you’ve recently become a vegan and love to bake, this vegan baking guide is for you.



Replacing eggs

Eggs are used in baking to bind the ingredients together and to help them rise. You can also add more eggs to change the density of the mixture depending on what you are making. As you are unable to eat eggs, it can be tempting to just leave them out and remove them from your recipe. But this can leave you with a dessert that falls apart easily or looks flat when it comes out of the oven. To avoid this from happening, you need to use an egg alternative to get a better outcome. Here are some of the most popular options.


Surprisingly, bananas are one of the most frequently used egg alternatives. They create the same effect as the eggs and help to bind your ingredients. They can also provide additional moisture to stop your bakes being too dry. You need to keep in mind that as well as binding, the bananas will also provide additional flavour. So make sure you are able to mask the flavour or use it to your advantage. Add one mashed banana for every egg needed in the recipe.

Baking Soda

Baking soda has an extensive range of uses and replacing eggs is one of them. This is a particularly effective method if you want your bakes to have a light and fluffy texture. Plus it’s something you probably already have in your kitchen. For each egg, you need to use, add one teaspoon of baking soda and one teaspoon of vinegar. Another option is to add two teaspoons of baking soda to two tablespoons of warm water per egg.


Pea Protein is a plant-based ingredient that acts as a binding agent and is a great egg substitute. You can buy it in powdered form, in both flavoured and unflavored varieties. You can then add it straight into your recipe. Another option you have is to use a product that has pea protein included. For example, food brand Hampton Creek recommends using their Just Mayo product to bake chocolate cakes. This egg-free mayonnaise is created with pea protein, and you only need 1 and a quarter cups. To find out more about the pea protein used by Hampton Creek, visit their website.



Replacing butter

Now you know how to replace the eggs in your baking recipes, it’s time to learn how to replace your dairy-based ingredients. To start off with, let’s take a closer look at how to replace butter, a key baking ingredient. Butter is used to add a rich flavour and moisture to your baked goods. IT can also improve the texture and look of your culinary creations. But even though it is important, it can easily be replaced. Here are some butter substitutes you might want to try.

Vegan margarine

The simplest way of replacing butter when baking is by using a vegan margarine. All you need to do is add the same amount of vegan margarine as you would butter. There are plenty of options to choose from, and you can find them in most wholefood stores. You may have to experiment to see which ones works best. Just remember that not all of them will be suitable for baking purposes so you will need to check this before you buy. Earth Balance Buttery Spread is one of the most widely used butter replacement options.

Coconut oil

Another option you have when replacing butter is using coconut oil. This can give your bake a creamy texture and flavour, and it’s also cholesterol free. So make sure your recipe compliments this before using it. Otherwise, your outcome might not be as successful as you would like. For every cup of butter, you require, add three-quarters of coconut oil to one-quarter water. You can find coconut oil at most supermarkets and wholefood stores. For more information on cooking with coconut oil, visit the Lucybee website.



Replacing Milk

Milk, like eggs, is primarily used as a binding agent to help your ingredients mix and rise correctly. But it is also used as a means of adding moistures and creaminess to a dessert or cake. IT can also alter the density of your mixtures, depending on what you are making. It’s a vital item that you cannot do without when baking. But thankfully there are plenty of fantastic milk substitutes available for you to use. Take a look at the following examples to find out more.

Soy milk

Soy milk is the favourite milk substitute used by vegans as it can often produce the best results. It has a thicker texture which is ideal for any rich desserts you intend on making. It is also said to be the closest thing to cow’s milk, which can help make your transition easier. Use one cup of soy milk for every cup of milk that is recommended in your recipe. Add this straight in with your other ingredients, like you would normal milk. This can then be used to create sponge, fillings and toppings of your choosing. Another option you have for heavier and richer desserts is coconut milk. Both of these can be found at most supermarkets and organic food stores.

Almond milk

Almond milk is another excellent milk alternative that you can use in your baking. It’s creamy texture, and nutty flavouring makes it ideal for baking. As it names suggests, it is created using ground up almonds. It also has a lower calorie content that most other milk options. So if you want a sweet treat and want to lose weight, this is the option for you. Follow the same ratio as the soy milk, using one cup of almond milk for every cup of milk.

With all of these milk substitutes, it’s important that you opt for unflavoured options. Many vegan-friendly kinds of milk have flavourings added to them to improve the flavour. But this could disrupt the intended flavours of your other ingredients. You should also look for unsweetened as this can also alter the sugar content of your bakes. The last thing you want is for your cakes and bakes to be too sweet to eat.



Replacing Chocolate

Whether it’s for fillings, decoration or flavour, chocolate and baking have always gone hand in hand. There are many different types you can use in both bar and powder form. But not all of them are vegan-friendly. You might be surprised to find out that some dark and cacao chocolates contain traces of dairy products. So unlike when you have used chocolate in the past, you need to be more careful now you are a vegan. Get clued up on vegan chocolate brands such as Green & Blacks and look for useful guides on the PETA website. This can help put your mind at ease and make shopping for suitable chocolate products much easier.

One final thing

Even though these products are all suitable for vegan baking, you need to get into the habit of always checking the labels. The majority of products that are suitable for vegans to consume will have the vegan symbol on their packaging. Some will also have ‘suitable for vegans’ printed onto them too. But not all of them will so you need to be vigilant. Take the time to triple check the ingredients used. That way you know that everything you create has no eggs or dairy used at all. Go online and visit vegan websites to get advice and guidance on where you should shop for baking supplies. This will be a valuable insight that can make the process more enjoyable and less challenging.

As you can see, being a vegan doesn’t mean you have to give up baking or to enjoy your baked creations. It won’t take long to discover that your desserts and cakes taste just as delicious without the use of milk or eggs. Granted, you will need to experiment and find the substitutes that work successfully for you. But that is all part of the fun. Start looking online for new vegan-friendly desserts, cakes and bakes you can try using your new-found knowledge.

Show Time (A Dodie O’Dell Mystery)
Lyrical Underground (July 19, 2016)
Paperback: 228 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1601837202


The tide has turned for Dodie O’Dell since a hurricane upended her life on the Jersey Shore. Now she’s further up the coast in sleepy Etonville, managing a restaurant that dishes dinners themed around the community theater’s latest productions. But Dodie just never imagined she’d land the starring role in a case of bloody homicide . . .

Intrigued by rumors of vanishing box office money, Dodie has agreed to help oversee the casting of Romeo and Juliet at the modest Etonville Little Theater. If nothing else, it’s a welcome escape from the thirty-something’s usual going-to-bed-with-a-mystery-novel routine. But when Jerome Angleton, a well-respected member of the theater company, is inexplicably found murdered on the loading dock, deadly drama transcends the stage—and the page. As a crime wave crashes over the small town, the spotlight is on Dodie to orchestrate her own investigation behind the scenes . . . before someone has a chance at a killer encore.

About The Author

Suzanne Trauth is a novelist, playwright, screenwriter, and a former university theatre professor. She is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and the Dramatists Guild. When she is not writing, Suzanne coaches actors and serves as a celebrant performing wedding ceremonies. She lives in Woodland Park, New Jersey.

My Review:

My favorite type of books to read are cozy mysteries. I am always looking for new authors and series.  Show Time is the first book in the Dodie O’Dell Mystery series.  I really like Dodie. She moved from the Jersey Shores to Etonville – a big change for her.  She was managing a restaurant that was based on the community theater.  Romeo and Juliet was the show that was being cast and Dodie was helping out.  Who knew they would find Romeo’s body on the loading dock?  What happened?  Will Bill and the police department need help in solving this mystery?

I found Show Time a fast read – and one I didn’t want to put down.  I am sure you will love this book as much as I did! I can’t wait till the next book in the series – Time Out.

I have always wanted longer thicker lashes so I was very happy to try New York Biology Eyelash Growth Serum #LashesForDays. Here are some of the UltraLah Serum Beneifits:

  • When applied daily, will encourage hair to grow thicker, fuller, and longer while improving the overall appearance and condition of your lashes.
  • Swiss Apple Stem Cells encourage hair to grow thicker and longer. It nourishes and renews hair growth at the follicle, which is the only living section of a strand of hair. Naturally, this makes hair healthy and alive.
  • Botanical Complex Tricholastyl® promotes youthfulness of the lashes and brows by helping prevent inflammation, free radicals and glycation which is a triggering factor for hair loss.
  • Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17, a high-tech active ingredient is clinically proven to increases eyelash thickness and length.

The New York Biology Eyelash Growth Serum is easy to use and I use it once a day.  You just apply it along the skin at the base of the upper eyelashes (where the eyelashes meet the skin) going from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part. I have not noticed or felt any irritation  from the growth serum.  I have only used it for a short time, but I am looking forward to longer thicker lashes.  If you would like to purchase your own New York Biology Eyelash Growth Serum you can buy it on the link below from Amazon.com.

Health is not hard. All it requires is an open mind and a willingness to change. When it comes to getting great health, one of the keys to success is examining your diet and making positive changes that will ensure that your body attains the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs to function optimally. Luckily, there are several simple strategies you can implement to facilitate this outcome. Some of them include:

1. Look For Healthy Snack Options.

Most people like to feel that food is an indulgence at some point in the day. Whether you’re looking for comfort foods after a hard day at work or simply have a big sweet tooth, it’s important that the snack options you select be healthy. If you continue to consume junk foods that are packed with empty calories, sugar, salt, and saturated fat, the outcome will be weight gain, lethargy, and several other health issues. As such, it’s important to search for healthy snack options that will satisfy your appetite while also promoting health. Food companies like HamptonCreek can assist you by offering a wide range of great snack options, including peanut butter cookies.

2. Begin Juicing.

Although juicing was thought to be a passing health fad at one point, it now seems that this food style is here to stay. And with good reason. Juicing is a wonderful way for individuals who don’t consume enough fruits and vegetables to eat them in a fun and tasty way. There are hundreds of foods that you can juice to get a nutrient-packed snack in. Some of them include:

• spinach
• apples
• arugula
• pineapple
• kale
• carrots
• celery
• cucumber
• peach
• blueberries

3. Keep A Food Journal.

In some cases, people overeat and eat unhealthy things regularly without being fully conscious of it. To break this cycle, be sure to get in the habit of keeping a food journal. This strategy will empower you to see exactly what you’re eating each day so that you can know what adjustments need to be made so that you can look and feel your best. Nowadays, you can access free online food journals through websites such as www.cronometer.com. This website enables you to log in your food intake and then analyze key factors such as your micronutrient/macronutrient ratios and caloric consumption.

4. Develop Relationships With Healthy People.

We tend to eat the type of food that is consumed by those who are closest to us. As such, make a point to establish connections with other people who are committed to eating nutritious, delicious food. This will help keep you on the path to optimal mental and physical wellness. There are several ways that you can get the process of building healthy relationships underway. One is to go online and see if there are any local meet-ups such as vegan potlucks. Another strategy you may want to implement is participating in online communities where people who have adopted a healthy eating lifestyle share their passion and recipe tips with other individuals.


If you’re interested in optimizing your health, remember that enhancing your diet will play an integral role in helping you realize the goal. Luckily, there are numerous strategies you can implement to start eating better. Some of them include looking for healthy snack options, juicing, keeping a food journal, and developing relationships with healthy people. By implementing some or all of these techniques consistently, you will likely find yourself on the road to a healthier, happier way of life!

About the book:

Murder Mezzo Forte (Lamplighter Mysteries, June 2016)

He is a reclusive history professor with musical hallucinations. . . .

She a headstrong professor of religion, a converted Wiccan. Earlier, they solved a campus murder, but now police say they formed two-thirds of an illicit love triangle with a newly-murdered female colleague and they’re probably guilty of her murder. A leak of the alleged scandal to the college administration threatens their jobs.

Their desperate attempt to prove themselves innocent of the triangle and the murder plunges them into a tangle of unsavory corporate relationships among college trustees. And it puts their lives in danger from a mysterious criminal organization that seems to have tentacles everywhere.

Can this ill-matched pair’s stumbling efforts succeed against the entrenched forces of the police, the college’s incompetent administration, and that powerful but unseen criminal organization? If not, they may end up unemployed, in prison, or suffering a fate much worse.

I love to find new authors and was excited to read Murder Mezzo Forte by Donn Taylor.  I was not sure what to expect but really enjoyed this book.  I liked that it had mystery and romance in it.  The story takes place on a college campus and made for a very interesting plot.  Even though I hadn’t read the book before this one I didn’t feel that I was missing anything since he did a good job of explaining everything.  The book kept me interested right until the end!  I can’t wait to read more from Donn Taylor.
