Pineapple Chicken Skewers Recipe from H&P Artistry

Mouthwatering Monday almost did not have a recipe this week. We had our Spring Birthday Party this weekend and I made all the favorites from Pasta Salad to Pineapple Chicken Skewers and my Brother made the Best Steaks Ever. I planned to take photos of all the steps for each recipe and have all the Mouthwatering Monday recipes photographed for the next few weeks. That did not happen. Instead Miss D, my 13-year-old Niece, decided she wanted to help me cook. I abandoned all photo thoughts to spend time with her, because I refuse to miss the minutes with them. Once these moments are gone we can’t get them back and they should never be squandered. Continue reading

Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe for Mouthwatering Monday from H&P Artistry

This weeks Mouthwatering Monday Recipe is Peanut Butter Frosting. This is a family favorite that I make for special occasions and when I get a craving for something decadent and delicious. The frosting is super rich and it doesn’t take much to satisfy a craving. I haven’t tried it with other nut butters but I bet cashew and almond would be wonderful. I use a stand mixer but you can use a hand mixer just as easily.

*This is a peanut product do not try if you have an allergy to peanuts.

Natural Air Freshener and Deodorizer Home Hack from H&P Artistry

Natural Air Freshener and Deodorizer Home Hack from H&P ArtistryNatural Air Freshener and Deodorizer

It’s time for a good old-fashioned Home Hack. I like to make Homemade products when I can because it is safer for the environment and lighter on my wallet. This Natural Air Freshener and Deodorizer recipe is both. The key to making these items at home is to know what to expect from the final product. Most store-bought products have artificial colors and fragrances that are enhanced to last longer and smell stronger. Natural air fresheners have a very light scent and because of the backing soda absorb more scent than they release. This mixture is best placed in bathrooms, closets, or any area that tends to smell musty, closed up, or damp.

Recipe

Natural Air Freshener and Deodorizer Home Hack from H&P Artistry

1 8 oz or smaller jar with canning lid
Burlap to fit lid (Can use decorative paper and poke lots of holes)
1/2 – 3/4 cup baking soda
1 tbsp Lavender dried
5 – 15 drops essential oil depending on scent strength
Scissors
Pencil

Step 1

Natural Air Freshener and Deodorizer Home Hack from H&P Artistry

Fill the jar with 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup baking soda.

Baking soda absorbs and helps to eliminate unwanted odors. It is a good idea to place an open box of baking soda in the refrigerator to absorb food odors. Do Not Use The refrigerator baking soda for cooking once stored in the refrigerator.

Step 2

Step 3

Step 6

Trace the sealing lid on to the Burlap and cut the circle out.

If you do not have burlap you can use a piece of decorative paper and poke holes in it to let the scent through.

Put the burlap into the open lid with out the seal.

Step 7

Replace the lid and place in the chosen room to freshen the air. You may need to add essential oil occasionally to boos the scent. You will also need to replace the sealing lid and shake the mixture every week or so to keep the baking soda from clumping up.

Replace the mixture every 30 days to 3 months depending on the moisture in the room being deodorized.

Simple Bread Recipe for Mouthwatering Monday from H&P Artistry

The Mouthwatering Monday recipe for today is a Simple Bread Recipe. My niece stayed with me this weekend and wanted to cook with me. We always make some kind of sweet treat so I decided to switch it up this time. I asked her if she wanted to bake bread. The idea of kneading bread was super appealing to her. This is a small batch of rustic bread and when making it with kids remember the time it takes to rise. Kids are all about instant gratification and waiting is not their strong suit. We made paper fish and raced them around the house while the bread rested on the kitchen counter. Continue reading
