Homespun Pickles.

I LOVE to pickle. Mostly we pickle onions and cucumbers, but I’m hoping to try peppers soon too! Anyway, I threw together this quick pickle the other night and it turned out GREAT, so I thought I’d share!

1 Cucumber

1/2 Small Onion

1 C. White Vinegar

1/4 C. Water

1/2 C. Light Agave Nectar

1 TBSP. Honey

1/2 tsp. Salt

1 tsp. Coriander

1/2 tsp. Fennel Seed

1/2 tsp. Dill


Slice Cucumbers and Onions thinly, I used a mandolin since I wanted them really thin. I was doing a quick pickle for dinner, so I wanted them to really soak up the flavor. Soak for at least 20 mins. Store in Refridge in airtight container. Pickles last about a week, the longer they soak the better they taste!

Now, go get creative, you can pickle anything! Share your ideas below! I’d love to hear about your recipes and tips!

A Skin Care Kit from NYR organic! Yay!!

You’ll even get to pick your skin type. The one above is what I use, for normal skin and I LOVE these products! I would get horrible acne while I was pregnant, and if I just washed my face with these (I also used one of those scrub brushes) every couple of days, (NO not even everyday!) I had NO issues at all! And of course (beware of shamless plug! lol) but if you want to check out these products for yourself you can click on the link at the right side of the page. They even have baby products! Sometimes I swear that a lot of health issues we face today simply come from the added chemicals in the products we use every day, so check it out!

Ok, that’s all for today but check back in on Friday for a fun new weekly feature I’m doing called Fit Bit Friday!

Love y’all!
