… was first tried this fall after one of our besties and her partner invited us to enjoy a  bowl of homemade Cincinnati Chili.  My girlfriend loves a well-known seasoning blend, named after a restaurant chain, that is a bit hard to find hereabouts.  It’s also rather pricey to purchase online.

Being a woman who likes to mix her own, I decided to look it up.  And came across what seems to be the “first” version of Cincinnati Chili!  Along with a bit of it’s history.  (Check it out yourself.)

Oh the excitement!

So I made a batch, tweaked it to fit and voila!  A very satisfying portion of happiness. Continue reading “Stef’s Cincinnati Chili Seasoning Mix”

I JUST submitted my first post to two (2!) blog hops!

I have found the best blogs by reading and clicking blog hops.  It’s a great way to share ideas and find new writers who talk about things that you find interesting.  And now, NHF is part of two of them this week!   My first ever submission is Rosewater and ACV Toner.  I figured it was a good one to start with.

If you don’t know what I mean by “blog hop”, or if you love them as much as I do, go check out two of my faves:  Homestead Barn Hop (which is a great blog even if you aren’t a homesteader but do like getting down to basics) and Homemade Mondays (another great blog that I find always hilarious and often informative.)

I’m so excited!  In fact, I was SO excited and nervous when I posted it first on Homestead Barn Hop that I chose the wrong thumbnail. sigh

Hey! At least I got the link right.

Eye MakeUp Remover

part of the I’ve Got a Secret series

To keep my skin healthy and looking younger, I started using non-toxic goodies like face cleanser, shower wash and body lotion.  But they can be expensive and you still might not know what’s really in them.

About a year ago, I began the gradual journey toward making my own skin care products. At first, it was rather intimidating.  There was a LOT of research to be done and then experimentation.  I also dragged my feet a bit.  I was scared.  What if they didn’t work?  How long would it take my skin to recover if it’s awful and I had to go back to the tried and true products?  Would my skin recover?

When it comes to health and aging, I will not go down without a fight!
