The Best Stain Removing Products and Cleaning Tips
Tomato Sauce
Scrape off dried sauce, then apply a solution of warm water and dish soap. Remove soap residue with damp towel; blot. If the stain persists, blot on an ammonia solution with a warm, damp towel.
Cuckoo for Coconuts

Q: Is coconut sugar healthier than the regular kind?
A: People are going cuckoo for coconut products. But the sweet stuff is not very different from table sugar; they're both  mostly sucrose. "However, coconut sugar tends to be less processed, so it retains more healthy minerals, like potassium and zinc, and vitamins, such as B and C. It also has a low glycemic index, so it's not released as quickly into the blood stream," says Ashley Koff, R.D., a Fitness magazine advisory board member. Don't take that as license to pour it on thick, though; you should always limit added sugar.

Mila Zucchini Bread

(Makes 2 mini loaves or 12 mini muffins and 1 loaf)
1-1/2 cup almond flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoon Mila
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup honey
1 ripe banana
1 cup shredded, unpeeled zucchini

Preheat oven to 350 degrees FarenheitCombine the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Place the wet ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer, then beat on medium for 1-2 minutes until frothy and fully combined. Add the zucchini and beat again just enough to incorporate. Hand mixing works well too! Slowly add the dry ingredients with the mixer running, until all of the flour mixture has been incorporated. Spoon the batter into 2 mini loaf pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the middle is set and a toothpick comes out clean. You can also use this batter to make muffins which take about 20 minutes to bake.

Referral of the Month
MADEON: Skin Care Products put a twist on traditional lotions. Here's a description of what it is and who it's for:
  • In only 3 ingredients (beeswax, coconut oil, & shea butter), you have a bar of lotion that works to heal the cuts and cracks in your dry skin, even relieving the pain and itch of some forms of eczema.
  • With no added preservatives, colorants or fragrances that often irritate the skin, users of hard lotion appreciate the simplicity of MadeOn's hard-core ingredients, especially those with skin care sensitivities.
  • Your skin's warm body temperature warms the lotion to absorb quickly and effectively into the skin, leaving no sticky or greasy residue.
