Zucchini Spread Russian Ikra {Kабачковая икра}

Quite simple recipe from zucchini squash. Kabachkovaya ikra is one of all times favorites. You can puree it and use as a spread or sauce. The word “ikra” in Russian means “caviar". Suitable as a snack on bread alone, perfectly complements the first and meat dishes. With only 4 vegetables ingredients it's a perfect combination. I remember making ikra with my mom when I was growing up. I loved it since then.

Pork Roast

 A simple, no-fuss way to make a savory, melt-in-your-mouth boneless pork loin roast. My co-worker gave me this recipe years ago. I haven't made it in a while, so my kids loved it so much. My son son said " This is the best meat ever".  This would be a perfect recipe for the crock pot too. I don't have one yet, so I roast it in the oven.

The Best Organic Facial Cleansing Formula

Forget harsh foaming cleansers and drying soaps! Cleanse with pure, natural ingredients like Purifying Mineral Clays, Soothing Organic Oatmeal, and Rose Petals. I've been using this face wash for a few years now. Love it!!! I gave it for Christmas to my family. They really enjoyed it too. Now I want to share it with you. Clay is awesome for the skin because it is high in minerals and nourishes the skin with nutrients that are thousands of years old.  Clay is very detoxifying for the skin and will remove the toxins that have accumulated over time.  Depending on your skin type you can use white clay (which is less drying and very gentle to the skin) or (which really aids oily or blemish-prone skin because of the high amount of minerals in the clay).  Whichever you choose, you will notice a difference that will have you smiling.

Spaghetti Squash Recipe


Spaghetti squash makes an excellent side dish or a fun substitute in thin noodle recipes. It is loaded with nutrients, such as beta carotene and fiber, and is tender, with just a slight crunch. It is an oblong seed-bearing variety of winter squash. The fruit can range either from ivory to yellow or orange in color. The orange varieties have a higher carotene content. My mother in law told me about spaghetti squash and how to cook it.

Shrimp Rice Paper Rolls

I been experimenting with new dishes. We really enjoyed these spring rolls. My daughter even enjoyed making em and then eating em. It’s an awesome entree to serve at dinner parties, or as canapés or snacks. The good thing is that the rolls stay fresh covered with a damp cloth for a few hours, so it’s a great dish that can be prepared ahead of time.
