Hey Friends! This recipe came from a family friend and I couldn’t believe it was plant-based the first time I ate it! So delicious, creamy, and tasty. This is definitely a recipe to try if you are taking food to something and want it to not contain dairy but you still want it to taste good.

Trust me I know. Most vegan things can be viewed as gross or non-tasty. This is not one of those. Although it’s not fat-free or calorie free it is cholesterol free! Yay!

I hope you guys enjoy it.

Natural Marble Cleaner

Hey Friends!!

I’ve gotten questions regarding how I clean my countertops so here’s a little how to!! We have honed Danby marble in our kitchen. Honed means the polish has been taken away so it is not shiny. In our bathrooms we have polished carrara marble.

Sadly marble does stain and etch. However, I do feel this adds to the beauty of it!! When cleaning marble natural products are best because they will not damage the stone! Castille soap is an excellent natural soap and is great for so many things including marble!

This super easy recipe will keep everything clean and smelling delicious. I use this in our kitchen and bathrooms as well.

For darker stains I use a baking soda poultice. Just add a TBS or two to the area you are treating. Add a teeny bit of water and mix till it form a paste.

Leave in place and cover with clear plastic wrap. IF needed tape it down so it does not move. Leave overnight. In the morning life it all and wipe down with cleaning spray. Stain should be lighter as the baking soda goes into the marble’s pores to lift the stain. Don’t be disappointed if it does not work 100% the first time. Sometimes it takes 2-3 tries before the stain is gone!

I use lavender or lemon castille soap and essential oils! Ultimately the scents you choose are your preference. However, I think lavender smells so clean and amazing!
