I am excited about this recipe because it is easy to make, it is inexpensive, and it is so pretty in a jar as a gift.  Since I already had some red food coloring and peppermint oil, the total cost to make this was basically the cost of 3 cups of sea salt and 3 […]

Tobacco Stick Stars

on Nov 28th 2012

I know this post is not a recipe but I wanted to share something simple to make, a repurposing project.  I have such fond memories of spending time with my grandparents in the country when I was a child.  I used to ride into the fields and to the barns in granddaddy’s old green pickup […]
