Easy Soy- & Dairy-Free Sugar Cookie Bars

These cookies are delicious and buttery, all without any soy or dairy!

I made these cookies during a time when I couldn't eat any dairy or soy because it upset the tummy of my little nursling. A mom still needs her treats, right?

The first time I made these sugar cookies, I realized that they weren't going to form the traditional "cookie" shape very well. So I poured the batter into a pan and-voila!- sugar cookie bars! We ended up using them instead of a cake for the base of our Diamond Jubilee figurines. (A friend from England sent us this kit, isn't it fun!?)

It Works! Noxicare Natural Pain Relief Cream

I am always looking for an easier way to get things done. This really applies to all areas of my life, even pain management. Pills are really too much work if you ask me, so I was really intrigued by Noxicare's all natural pain relief cream. 

"Cream." I thought to myself, "Wow, a one-step process to pain relief! It's so simple I would actually use it!"

But the question is, of course, does it actually relieve pain? Aye, there's the rub. (Pun intended.) So read on for my review on how the cream rubbed out our aches and pains! (Spoiler alert: it worked for us!)

You can now enter to win one of two tubes of cream in the Noxicare Pain Relief Cream Giveaway (US only, ends 9/9/12)!

What would you dare to accomplish if you knew you could not fail?

Flowers with money, Dollars, Euros

The Green Blogger Challenge for June 21 today is to write about the "Most recent words of wisdom you heard that stuck with you."

When I read the topic, I immediately thought of two quotes that I read recently.

The first I came across while doing some blog visits at Big Adventure Calling. Just under the header it reads,

"Sometimes I'd like to ask God why he allows poverty, famine, and injustice in the world when he could do something about it, but I'm afraid God would ask me the same question." ~Anonymous

Our Perfect Cloth Diaper Wash Routine!

Figuring out the perfect cloth diaper wash routine can be the holy grail of cloth diapering.

When I was starting out cloth diapering, it was really helpful to read how other people washed their cloth diapers. So here is our routine!

Molly's Suds Natural All Sport Wash

I was lucky enough to be able to try out the All Sport detergent from Molly's Suds! As you may remember, I am a huge fan of Molly's Suds Laundry Powder for washing our cloth diaper stash.

So I was very excited to also have the opportunity to try out the All Sport wash by Molly's Suds. To be honest, I wasn't really aware of the benefits of sport wash before I got the wash. Now I know that sport wash is necessary because regular detergents can leave residues on sports wear and equipment.

Read on for how Molly's Suds All Sport wash can solve those problems!
