100 - It Better Be Good

So, for my 100th post I thought I would share some goodies.

The first 2 come from Paula Deen's site: Corrie's Kitchen Spa has a few other spa recipies you may be interested in, as well.

Lemon Facial Refresher

A perfect facial refresher in the summer at the beach or winter to
close your eyes and think of the beach.
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 8 hours 10 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients

2 cups water
1 vitamin C tablet
Peels from 2 lemons
4 (4 oz.) plastic spray bottles

Directions

In a small sauce pan, bring water to a boil. Add vitamin C tablet and stir until dissolved. In a medium glass bowl, add the lemon peel. Pour the hot water over the lemon peel and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to steep overnight on the counter. Pour mixture into four (4 oz.) plastic spray bottles, removing all but one piece of the lemon peel in each bottle.

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

An invigorating exfoliator made in your kitchen for pennies compared to spa brands and will leave your skin glowing.
Servings: Yields a 14 oz. container
Prep Time: 10 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients

1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, can substitute Sweetened Almond Oil or Vegetable Oil
1 teaspoon Vitamin E (cut open Vitamin E liquid gel caps)
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract , optional (or your favorite citrus essential oil)
1 tablespoon honey, optional for dry skin

Directions

In a medium mixing bowl, combine oil, vitamin E and vanilla.
Add the brown sugar and mix well. 
To Use: In the shower, apply Corrie’s Brown Sugar Body Scrub into skin and rinse.
Can be used daily. 
Corrie’s Note: Please be aware that oils can make the shower and bath surfaces very slippery.


Apple-Butter Pecan Dump Cake
(at least that's what we're calling it...)



Dump 2 cans of apple pie filling into a 9x13 dish. Spread evenly in pan. Dump a package of butter pecan cake mix on top of the apple pie filling. Use a fork to break up any clumps and even out the cake mix. Cut 1 stick of butter into small pats and place them on top of the dry mix. Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes. So yummy and so easy. Enjoy!

Share your favorite recipies. I'm always looking for something easy.

Thanks. The blog design is a work in progress. I'm still learning.
