Keep Snow and Ice Off Windshields

Do you live in an area prone to Snow or Ice?  Tired of scraping snow and ice of windshields and mirrors because you are one of those unfortunate ones that don't get to park your car inside a garage?
Give this a try next time you are faced with having to scrape snow and ice off your windshields and mirrors.

Cover your windshield and mirrors with plastic sheets or brown butcher type paper.  Keep the plastic/paper tucked in by using your wipers. 

My son confirmed this worked on his scooter mirrors.  Let me know how this worked for you.


Very Effective All Natural Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer

Details:  Yalmeh Peerless Beauty offers a Super Youth Vitamin C Facial Moisturizer for Day or Night and for Sensitive Skin.  This cream starts to work immediately to restore essential moisture.  It rejuvenates and moisturizes.  Made from all natural and organic ingredients.  A most effective anti aging product that refines skin texture, reduces wrinkles, clears up acne, helps fade sun spots and discoloration.  Proudly made in USA at their FDA registered facility.
My Review:  It's no secret that I love lotions and potions for my skin.  It's always so dry, despite living in a humid climate.  And yes, I stay hydrated.

The opportunity to review this product came at just the right time for me.  I've been searching for the next best day/night cream for my face and hands.  (Might as well include my feet in that too.)  My go to lotion is no longer available.  So, I've been looking at lots of different kinds and brands etc.  Like I said, perfect timing.

Yalmeh Peerless Beauty has an entire line of anti-aging lotions and serums.  I was given the opportunity to try their Super Youth Vitamin C Face Moisturizer Day/Night for Sensitive Skin in exchange for my honest opinion.  My opinion is not reflected on the fact I received the product free. I just really like lotions.  The very first time I applied to my hands, they instantly felt better, not dry. They felt silky and soft.  Then I applied this under my eyes and around my mouth.  Again, my skin felt great, despite having makeup on.  

I agree 100% with the following statement by Yalmeh found on Amazon. "A dermatologist grade skin treatment with luxurious feel: it contains 100% natural and organic aloe, organic turmeric and coq10 an essential nutrient that is vital to developing healthy skin and youthfulness, as well as, vitamin c and e and b5. Yalmeh super youth vitamin c moisturizer is conclusively considered to be the most effective facial moisturizer available."  Other beneficial ingredients include Dandelion, Arnica, Calendula, Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil and the list goes on.  Yalmeh knows which ingredients are best for the skin and incorporated them into their formula for Super Youth Vitamin C Face Moisturizer.

This product increases skin brightness, heals sun damage, increases hydration and aids in anti-wrinkles.  I'm certain your skin will be very happy when you include Yalmeh Peerless Beauty products in your daily beauty routine.

Pros:  Feels luxurious just like they claim.  Skin immediately feels hydrated and silky soft.  Skin is brighter, and fine lines are being minimized in just a short period of time.

Cons:  None.

My Rating:  A Big Thumbs Up!!!  


Pumpkin Pancakes & Home Made Maple Syrup

This year we decided to ditch the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner.  None of the kids can come visit, we're going to be busy with some home updates and decided to opt for something simple yet delish.

My husband's favorite meal is breakfast with all the works.  This year our menu will include eggs, bacon, sausage, pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup, orange juice and milk.  Nothing fancy, but it's his favorite.

Here's our recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes.

Pumpkin Pancakes (Makes 12)


To whatever mix or made from scratch recipe you prefer to use for basic pancakes, add the following:

1 Tbsp. Vinegar to the milk or water
1 cup pumpkin puree (I prefer Libby's 100% Pure)
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Hints & Tips:

Can add 1/3 cup Potato Starch or 1- 2 TBS. Corn Starch for fluffier pancakes.


Mix well with whisk.  Not necessary to get out all lumps, but don't have them very big either.

When cooking, as you see bubbles start to form on the pancake, you will know it is time to flip them.

Top with Maple Syrup, a Dollop of Whipped Topping, and a Sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Home Made Maple Syrup


2 c. sugar
1 c.  water
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. maple flavoring


Place in small pan and boil till sugar dissolves.  The longer it boils, the thicker the syrup will be.  Boil at least 1 minutes.  Remove from heat and add vanilla a maple flavoring.


Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate

I really really love hot chocolate.  But trying to keep my weight down, I don't drink near what I would love too.

I also really like flavored hot chocolate.  My first experience I remember about a flavored hot chocolate other than mint, was Cinnamon Hot Chocolate.  That recipe will be coming soon.

With Thanksgiving just next week, I thought I would share my recipe for Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate.

Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate


For each cup of hot chocolate made from this basic Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe, add the following in a mug.

1/4 cup canned pumpkin (I prefer Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin)
1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 to 1 tsp. vanilla


Mix completely. Heat and Serve with a dollop of  Whipped Topping sprinkled with Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe

Combine the following Ingredients:

3 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp. ground allspice

Store in small jar or spice container.
