Recipe for Awesome Bites!

One of my friends Danette known as the Dessert Diva shared this yummy recipe with me! She is on the Chat TV talk show like me.www.firstcoastnews.com.

You know how I love to cook and makeup!

Here is her recipe for a hard to believe good for you and FIBER rich treat. Danette on The Chat photo

Energy and fiber your body needs!

1 1/4 cups raw almonds
1 /14 cups dates (pitted)
1 Tbsp  honey ( maybe a bit more)
Pinch of salt

Grind almonds and dates in food processor until fine ( a little coarse is ok, too) add honey and salt. Process until well combined. ..it should be sticky enough to form a ball. Press down in a 8×8 pan lined with foil. Make sure to press down hard, so it really holds together. Let sit approx 1 hour. Pull foil out of pan, and cut into squares.

If it needs more honey to stick together, that is fine. You could use more dates in beginning if you like.

So easy and it tasted SO DELICIOUS!

I can’t wait to go shop for the ingredients and whip up these squares for myself when I travel and serve to my clients too. Enjoy!

Day 15 to more beautiful skin!

There are so many lotions and beauty potions out there. But there is NOTHING like doing an at home treatment from the kitchen. Not only are you what you eat. YOU also are what you put on your face!

I love to whip up my own beauty potions…those of you who read my blog know I love to eat, cook,makeup and entertain. So, here is a fresh beauty concoction to try and enjoy! My friends who are of Asian descent recommend this and their skin looks amazing.

Peaches & Cream Face Mask

1/2 ripe peach
1 tsp.honey
1 to 2 tablespoons of crushed almonds

High in beautiful nutrients…the peach can NATURALLY exfoliate and smooth skin gently. They also have properties that lighten sun spots.Peel the peach and mash. Grind or crush the almonds in a coffee grinder.I have one just for beauty recipes. Add honey and make a nice mask out of this.I apply this to face and neck.
Leave on fifteen minutes.Rinse well.Look in the mirror and glance at the new texture and feel of your skin.
Moisturizer to follow.
You will be tempted to eat this mask…but enjoy it ON your face~
