vegan eggnog

i love and miss eggnog. sorry but vegan isn’t the easiest transformation on earth and i miss a lot of things.  so i’m trying new recipes to see what i think. the banana has me thrown off here, but hey,  i just over bought like 40 bananas, so it’ll be to my benefit to use some.  got this from this link. click and enjoy.







the best and freshest meat, fish, poultry i’ve found


the best meat around.  they have a unique system of delivery as well.  they will come to your area about every quarter with different meat, poultry or fish choices.  it’s super fresh and has no chemicals or antibiotics. the salmon is from alaska as is the cod.  honestly, i couldn’t be happier with this company and heard about it “word of mouth”.  if you click the link, below, it will take you to their sign up page and gives me a referral. i think you get a discount and i get a whole dollar! lol.  at any rate, you’ll be very happy with their products and save money as well.  where else can you get 93% lean ground beef for such a small price?  and the chicken breasts are amazingly giant and delicious.

No Churn Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Ice Cream


No Churn Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Ice Cream

Yield: 1 1/2 quarts

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 6 hours 15 minutes (includes chill time)

Creamy cinnamon ice cream with snickerdoodle cookie pieces. This easy no churn ice cream is the BEST! I can never stop at one scoop!


1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups cold heavy cream
1 1/2 cups chopped snickerdoodle cookies, divided (about 10 cookies)
Cinnamon and sugar mixture, optional


1. In a medium bowl, stir together sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Set aside.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, beat cream on high until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. With a rubber spatula, gently fold whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk mixture. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of the snickerdoodle cookie pieces.

3. Pour ice cream mixture into a loaf pan or container. Smooth with a spatula and sprinkle remaining cookie pieces over the top. If desired, sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar over the top too. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 6 hours.

4. When ready to serve, remove from freezer and scoop away!

Note-I used my favorite snickerdoodle cookie recipe, but didn’t dip them in white chocolate.

  • Remineralizes tooth enamel
  • Repairs cavities
  • Antibacterial
  • Pain relieving
  • Prevents cavities by strengthening tooth enamel, removing bacteria, and changing pH

Cure tooth decay with remineralizing tooth powder for sensitive teeth

DiY Remineralizing Toothpaste  (makes 1 cup with no fillers)


3 tbsp. calcium carbonate

2 tbsp. bentonite clay

1/2 cup baking soda

1/4 cup Himalayan salt, whirled in your spice grinder until a fine powder

1 tsp. peppermint eo

10 drops myrrh eo,

10 drops clove eo

Divide this between 2 – 125ml (1/2 cup) glass jars.  Keep tightly capped when not in use.

Cure tooth decay ingredients


This tooth powder has no fillers.  Every part is essential.  Initially buying the ingredients may seem expensive, but it will give you many months of tooth powder for your efforts.

Mix calcium, clay, baking soda, and Himalayan salt in glass bowl. Whisk it to blend it thoroughly. Add peppermint eo, myrrh eo, and clove eo. Divide between two ½ cup jelly jars. Cap tightly.

How to use this remineralizing tooth powder to cure tooth decay:

To use: Moisten toothbrush under the tap. Use plain, unfluoridated water. If your water is fluoridated it’s better to use filtered water to brush your teeth. Fluoride will bind to your teeth preventing remineralization with calcium. Floride is also harmful to the thyroid, filling the iodine receptors, and inhibiting iodine uptake.

Stick your moistened toothbrush in the jar and take up some of the tooth powder on the brush.

Brush teeth as normal. If you are remineralizing your teeth in order to cure tooth decay, hold the goop in your mouth for 60 seconds while you do something else. This allows your tooth enamel to be in contact with the remineralizing calcium and clay. Spit. Do not swallow. The spit will be grey. That’s the clay removing toxins from your mouth. It’s normal. Rinse your mouth with clear water.

Brush at least twice a day. Floss once a day.

Cure tooth decay with remineralizing tooth paste

Turn this into remineralizing toothpaste:

If your family is used to toothpaste and would find it easier to use a paste rather than a powder, simply add ½ cup to ¾ cup of coconut oil to the above recipe. It will remain soft and paste like if your ambient temperature is between 60 and 70 degrees F. Organic virgin coconut oil is known to prevent cavities.

What does each ingredient in the recipe do?

Calcium carbonate – remineralizes teeth with calcium, replaces toxic fluroride that weakens teeth

Bentonite clay –whitens teeth, antibacterial, offers trace minerals, and absorbs toxins that inhibit oral health

Baking soda – whitens teeth, antibacterial, mildly abrasive, changes the pH to make the mouth less acidic

Himalayan salt, trace minerals,

Peppermint eo – freshens breath, antibacterial, refreshing, stimulating, carminative

Myrrh eo – freshens breath, antibacterial especially good for oral health, healing to gums and tongue,

Clove eo – pain relieving, antibacterial, numbing, helps if you have sensitive teeth

Cure Tooth Decay

Get the bad stuff out of your mouth.  Put the good stuff in your mouth.  And use this remineralizing tooth powder or add coconut oil and make it into remineralizing tooth paste and you’ll be on your way to not just better dental health, but also better overall health.

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot.
  2. Once the water has boiled, add the tea or teabags. Take the pot off the heat and let the tea steep. If you are using teabags, take them out after 2-4 minutes. If using loose leaf tea, you can let it steep for up to 10 minutes without the tea getting bitter.

I posted this recipe a couple of years ago, but this is still one of my favorite recipes to can. This is also one of my most popular canning projects, along with the apple-pear jam and the cyser style apples from last fall. I can’t keep jars of any of these three recipes in the house.

I do tend to use more peppers in the recipe now, but if you’re not a heat freak like me, then start with the recommended amount and go from there.

I want to try this with different fruits and peppers. I have some peppers called ring of fire in the freezer that I want to use with strawberries. Some women have a chocolate hoard in their freezers. I have hot peppers.

Firestarter Jam (Peach-Scotch Bonnet Jam)

3 cups sliced peaches

1 seeded, diced scotch bonnet pepper- I really would seed it. The heat level…
