DIY Citrus House Cleaner

DIY Citrus House Cleaner

I originally found this recipe on Pinterest (here is link).
I used the leftovers from juiced lemons (rinds and a bit of pulp), cut into quarters. I emptied old pickle jar and stuffed lemons in there then filled with white vinegar. Wait 2 weeks then strain and mix 50-50 with water and put in spray bottle. Pretty easy, eh? Can be used on just about anything!
Happy cleaning!

Italian Flatbread~Easy Recipe!

Italian Flatbread
Recipe here!

Found this simple and easy recipe for flatbread ~ no yeast needed! (which is good because I had none!)
Instead of lugging out my cast-iron skillet, I used my electric griddle which also gave me the option to cook 2 flatbreads at a time! Genius! I did brush a little oil on the griddle before I cooked each flatbread to aid in browning. I also turned griddle to highest temp (which is 400 on mine).
To store, cool breads completely and store in large ziploc bags for up to 3 days then transfer to fridge for about a week. But I bet they dont last that long! This recipe made 6 flatbreads for me that average about 12 " long.

My Hummos

My Hummos Recipe (that everyone asks for!)

2 cans garbonzo beans~drained
1/4-1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (to taste)
1 cup water
1 tbs olive oil (I used Expeller pressed Safflower oil)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp salt

Blend until smooth. Too thick? Add more water, stir and resume blending. Eat!
I ate mine with home-made flat bread. Find Flat Bread recipe here.
