Kids don't like the taste of homemade toothpaste BUT that's because their parents haven't tried this recipe yet!
Homemade toothpaste is one thing. Homemade toothpaste kids will use is quite another. That’s why this Natural Orange Cream Toothpaste for kids is such a hit!

No need to buy Probars or Clif bars, just make your own in whatever flavors you love.
These homemade energy bars are a great all-natural solution for folks looking for hardy, energy-boosting granola bars they can make at home and take on the go.

Adventure. Stewardship. Purpose.
Introduction
In 2010 I grew tired of working an unfulfilling job to pay for unfulfilling stuff and decided instead to define my mission in life and pursue it no matter what.

Now I wake every morning to help promote holistic stewardship - being responsible with all we've been given - and encourage people toward positive change.

Gary does great work at great prices. He only performs work on brakes and mufflers but when I asked him about an auto mechanic who performs all types of work he quickly pointed me to another solid mechanic with great prices. Solid guy, highly recommended.

My wife and I are into local, seasonal food. We avoid chain restaurants with menu's developed in corporate chemistry labs opting instead for chef inspired menu's featuring in-season, local fare. That's why we were so excited to try Husk. I'm sorry to say we were disappointed for several reasons, but still happy in other ways. Let me cover the negatives first, then I'll finish with the positives. Here are the Negatives: 1. Our first interaction was with the greeter, who let us stand around for several minutes without a greeting while she took phone reservations. We don't blame this on her, we blame it on the manager. We believe a restaurant of this acclaim should have someone taking reservations in the back room, while leaving the greeter to greet and seat in-house customers. 2. The drink menu was vague, over-complicated, expensive, and there were no beers on tap. 3. Fruit flies buzzed around our food several times throughout the meal and we had to shoo them away. 4. Our entree's (the chicken dish and the pork dish) were way, way, way too salty. It reminded us more of an Applebee's meal than something featuring the rich flavors of ripe, properly-raised/grown, real, local food. Now for the positives: 1. The foods are locally sourced and sustainably raised. This alone makes me excited to support this restaurant. They had a huge chalk board by the greeter stand listing the local sources of much of their menu. Awesome. 2. The lettuce wraps were great. The flavor, texture, and visual experience made for a delicious and exciting start to our meal. 3. Our server was thorough, knowledgable, helpful, and friendly. 4. The restaurant and restrooms were clean, well decorated, and inviting. The night previous, we dined at FIG and had a much more pleasant and complete experience for seasoned, local foodies. From the drinks to the desserts, FIG is better than HUSK, although Husk is decent - especially if you like overly salty food. If you prefer the featured taste of the local fare and you cannot try both restaurants, go with FIG.

From the minute we arrived hungry, until leaving fat and happy, this place rocked our world. I'm confident to say it was the best restaurant meal we've eaten in years. If you're into local, sustainable, seasonal food, with a chef-inspired menu, you will love FIG. The servers are well trained and passionate about the mission of the establishment, the drinks were creative and unique (try the house Negroni), and the food was prepared with care and ardor. For our main course we chose the grouper and snapper dishes with a shared side of roasted okra and peppers. We finished with the sticky sorghum cake with pecan ice cream - wow - I couldn't have just one bite, and I'm not a dessert guy. Again, from start to finish this place impressed. We highly recommend it.

We just moved here from Michigan awhile back and have been trying to find the best pizza in the area . . . after trying Iannuccis tonight we believe we found it! Great stuff, can't wait to sit on the patio when it warms up.
