Face mask

Patrick’s sister, Sarah, has been using this and I asked her for the recipe. I used it last night and today, it works great! Smooth, soft skin. Like, instantly. It also relieved redness. So here it is:

Facial mask

2 tbps honey

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp cinnamon

Blend together in a small bowl. Spread on face, avoiding eyes. Let it sit for about 30 mins, rinse off with warm water.

Be warned: It drips (it makes your face itchy while it drips, but don’t touch it!), so I suggest wearing a shirt you don’t mind it getting dripped on. Feel free to wipe the drips with your finger and lick it. It tastes good!

Store in fridge. You can use daily, every other day, or whenever you like. It won’t harm your skin.


Olive Garden Copycat Salad Dressing

Have any of you ever eaten at Olive Garden? Well if you haven’t, you are crazy.

When you order your meal they don’t mention that you will get bread sticks and a salad before the meal. So by the time you get it, you are FULL.

They have the best salad of all time. And that’s saying something coming from a girl that HATES salad.

I found a recipe on Pinterest for their dressing and made it to use for dinner. It is so close to the real thing, all you need is some bread sticks.

So here is the recipe:


Olive Garden Salad Dressing

1 packet (0.7 oz) italian dressing mix (and ingredients called for on packet to mix it up)

1/2 tsp dried italian seasoning

1/2 tsp table salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tbsp mayo

1/4 c olive oil

2 tbsp white vinegar

1 1/2 tbsp water


Mix up the italian dressing as called for on the packet. (This will make a small amount.) Combine the rest of the ingredients starting with the dried italian seasoning in a small bowl. Blend well with a whisk. Store in a mason jar.

Shake well before each use. Stores for up to 4 weeks.


You’re welcome.
