Grilled Asparagus

This recipe is a staple in my home.  It is so easy, I’m sure it will become a favorite in your house too.  I filmed myself cooking this dish, but it’s a little shaky.  So, feel free to watch, or simply read the recipe below.

 

What you need:
Fresh asparagus
Salt and Pepper to taste
Garlic & Herb Seasoning (I use Salt-free Mrs. Dash)
Olive Oil

What to do:
1.  Heat on High a grill pan, or use the BBQ outside.
2.  Place cleaned and cut asparagus on the hot grill.
3.  Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.  Allow to cook on grill for 2 minutes.  The asparagus will turn a bright green. 
4.  Drizzle with olive oil.”
5.  Flip asparagus and allow to cook an additional 1-2 minutes.
6.  Sprinkle with garlic and herb seasoning.
7.  Remove from pan and enjoy!

Here is the final product…Tasty!

Oh, Honey…Tighten Up! Honey Mask

As always, I have a vlog or, if you prefer to read, I have included text and pictures below.  Thanks for stopping by :).

 

I am always on the lookout for fun and easy beauty treatments and this awesome mask is the easiest I have ever come across.  It only has one ingredient: honey!  I know that all of you have honey in your kitchen cupboard and if for some reason you don’t, you can pick it up at the grocery store for around $3.  Honey is an amazing natural sweetner.  I like to put honey on my grapefruit, on cooked shrimp and salmon (recipes coming soon) and in tea and any other food that needs a little sweetner added.  Honey is a single ingredient, all natural product, so I love it.  Honey as a beauty treatment is a new concept to me.  I’ve done a little research and this is what I have found so far.

  • It’s a natural humectant, which means it seals in moisture.
  • Honey tightens pores in the skin.
  • It is one of natures best antibacterials.
  • It calms acne and breakouts.
  • Honey brightens and energizes the skin.
  • And it can, over time, lighten and eliminate scars.

So, now that we have all the benefits down, let’s get started on this super easy mask…
bee ready to bee amazed! (hehe).
Oh, Honey…Tighten Up! 
(I love this name, and I thought of it all by myself!)

Grab any old honey that you have in your kitchen cupboard.  If you don’t have any honey at home and need to purchase, I would go for organic honey.  It costs the same as regular honey and is more “natural”.   This mask is so easy, you might think it’s too good to be true

Step 1:  Wash and pat dry your face. 

Step 2:  Put a few tablespoons of honey onto your finger tips. 

 

Step 3:  Rub the honey onto your face using an upward motion.  Ensure that you are spreading a thin film on your entire face.  (Please forgive me, I have no makeup on!).  Avoid your eye area, honey is your eyes is a sticky situation!  If you get any in your mouth, no worries, its like a built in snack!

Step 4:  Kick up your feet and relax for 15 minutes!

 

 

Step 5:  Rinse off with warm water and follow with a mild facial cleaner to remove all of the honey.

Step 6:  Enjoy you newly tightened skin and rave to your friends about the natural beauty benefits of honey:)!
