I do love fall. I love orange pumpkins, multicolored corn and shiny red apples. But I'm still stuck on green. I'll take the fall weather, but let me hang onto these just a little longer...

I recently came across a lovely lemon biscuit recipe and decided to go wild, crossing the dairy off the recipe and substituting in non-dairy alternatives. But biscuits are fussy, right? Well, it worked. Thank you, vegan butter.

Do you know what you're eating? Do you know what you're missing? I'm weird, I like doing research...so I did some research on information from a presentation I recently attended on what is and isn't in our modern food supply.

"But Ilana, this is all about vitamins and don't you represent a company that sells vitamins? Are you trying to sell stuff?"

Yes, I am an Independent Unfranchise Owner with Market America and I can sell vitamin supplements. This isn't a sales pitch. This is sharing information, and letting the reader come to a conclusion. Inquiring minds want to know. I want to know. If you do too, read on, and if you want to know more, let me know. If you just think it's interesting, let me know that too!

I planted potatoes this year for the first time, and am having good results with it so far! Here's a little outline on how to plant potatoes (from the garden store or trying with sprouted supermarket potatoes), as well as some info on why you'd want to.

I love online shopping, and I'm leveraging my shopping to make extra cash back. I'm big on saving money, and I wanted to share with you what I'm doing and how you can make money by buying things you're already buying too!

Baking without a recipe?! Am I crazy? Am I also the kind of lunatic who colors outside of lines?

No, I'm too particular to color outside the lines, but I've discovered that it is wholly possible to bake without a recipe, using the ingredients in the pantry and leveraging my baking knowledge and experience.

Over and over, I talk to adults who say they don't know how to cook. Here's my recipe for this post: a basic primer on why anyone can cook and how, plus just a pinch of my signature snark. If you think you can't cook, I'm going to go ahead and say that I have full confidence that you can get to a point where you're at least comfortable in the kitchen.
