14 Signs You’re Not Drinking Enough Water

There’s not much in this world more refreshing than a tall, ice-cold glass of water. I don’t think there’s anyone alive that can deny that sometimes, a simple glass of water can be more satisfying than a cup of coffee or a can of soda. Despite this, too many of us don’t drink enough water on a daily basis. By depriving ourselves of the world’s most natural resource, we are continuously damaging our bodies. If you experience any of the following, you can improve your situation by starting with a glass of H2O.

Mini Apple Rose Pies

I’m obsessed with mini things. I recommend using an apple like Pink Lady, Braeburn or Honeycrisp – something crisp, firm, sweet and a bit tart with a pinkish hue on the skin. A regular Red Delicious lunchbox apple won’t give you great results here because the texture is too mealy, the skin too bitter and the flavor not intense enough. Fuji or Golden Delicious will work in a pinch.

You can shortcut the recipe and save yourself about an hour and purchase already made pie dough – look for “all butter” pie dough. Honestly, it’s easy enough to make yourself (it’s like playing with Play-doh! lol), but sometimes you just don’t wanna, and I get that. But make it from scratch, at least once. It’ll rock your world.

10 Health Benefits Of Drinking Lemon Water You Haven’t Realized

If you’ve been to practically any restaurant, you’ll find that if you order water, it will almost always come with a lemon wedge in the glass.

You may have thought that all this did was give your water a bit of a lemony after-taste — but you’d be wrong. In truth, infusing your water with a fresh lemon gives it numerous beneficial properties.

Why is that? Well, to put it simply, lemon juice is packed with numerous nutrients, ranging from vitamin C to calcium, potassium and iron. Not only that, but it also contains certain antimicrobial agents, allowing it to enhance your immune system.

I like my lemon water over ice (especially during the summer), but to get the most out of it, experts suggest drinking it warm, and also say that it’s best to imbibe it about 15 minutes before you eat. Many people use warm lemon water as a coffee replacement in the morning, but feel free to have a cup at other times during the day as well.

Now that you’ve gotten the basic rundown, what are a few of the specific benefits of drinking lemon water? Well I’m glad you asked. For one, it. . .

1. Banishes your acne.

Turkey Brine of Thanksgiving Recipe

It’s time.

It’s time for Thanksgiving recipes.

I don’t care that it’s not even Halloween yet!

Oh, I know how it goes. Every year around this time, I think I have all this time to post Thanksgiving recipes on this little food blog of mine. I think, “It’s not even Halloween yet. I’ve got all the time in the world!” Then it happens. It’s the same every year. We dress up our children in Iron Man and Richard Nixon costumes, go trick-or-treating in our quaint little town, then by the time they’re on their last piece of candy–which is actually like twenty hours later–it’s suddenly Christmas. And I’m looking around my kitchen and my little food blog like, “Okay…what just happened?”

And then I ask my children if they have any candy left because I’m having a wicked sugar craving.

And they tell me to go bake a pie or something. Smart-alec little varmints.

Anyway, today I’m sharing my step-by-step method for brining a turkey. I brine a turkey every year.
