Homemade NY Style Bagels – A Simple Recipe


How To Make Homemade NY Style Bagels :


After I had posted my pictures of my homemade NY style bagels on Facebook,  I received so many requests for the recipe and even for me to make a  “how to” video. So I set up my camera and started recording.

Homemade NY Style Bagels

This is a very simple recipe. The best part is you know exactly what is going into your bagels, and there are no ingredients that you can not pronounce!

In this video I am using a Kitchenaid Mixer. It is the classic plus model.  I have never owned a mixer like this until just last month.  I can’t believe I have waited so long to get one.  This style of mixer makes the task of making homemade breads, pizza dough or of course bagels so easy!!

Making NingXia Red Soda


For today’s post I wanted to share another way I like to use Young Living products. Today’s product is Young Living’s NingXia Red.

NingXia Red® is a naturally delicious, nutrient-infused wolfberry drink that
will energize, fortify, and replenish your body. Rich in wide-spectrum
antningxia red imageioxidant activity, NingXia Red has the highest levels of naturally occurring,
age-defying S-ORAC activity to help support immune function, cardiovascular
health, and nourish the eyes. NingXia Red also contains lemon and orange
essential oils rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene to promote healthy
liver function. Ningxia wolfberry, the primary ingredient in NingXia Red, has
been cherished for centuries for its health, energy, and longevity benefits.
Whole Ningxia wolfberries and other nutrient-dense fruit juices, like blueberry
and pomegranate, make NingXia Red the perfect choice for optimizing wellness and
stepping up to a whole new level of health.

Homemade Foaming Hand Soap with Young Living Oils


I have been searching the internet for a simple recipe to make my own Essential oil foaming hand soap. After a bit of trial and error, here is what I have come up with.

What you will Need:

Foaming soap dispenser: Homemade Foaming Hand SoapI happened to have one I purchased from Young Living, I am sure most of us have one from Bath and Body Works or even Dial now has a foaming dispenser.

Young Living Essential Oil: I used Thieves in my recipe.

Distilled Water or Spring Water: Of course these are the best choices vs your tap water.

Decorative Rocks: Totally optional… But I think they look cool, or colors marbles also would be nice. Also a tip the rocks help to mix the soap inside the container.

Unscented Body Wash:  I used “Everyday Shea Moisturizing Body Wash”  unscented all natural Body Wash, This makes a great base.

Homemade Foaming Hand SoapStep 1: Add rocks to bottom of the soap container>  I filled mine up about 3/4 of an inch worth

Step 2: Add Body wash> my body wash had a pump, so I added 12 pumps worth (enough to just cover the rocks)Homemade Foaming Hand Soap

Step 3: Add the Young Living Thieves Essential oil> I used 8-10 Drops

Homemade Foaming Hand SoapStep 4: Fill the rest of the container up to with in 1 inch of the top with your Distilled or Spring water.

Step 5: Replace the foaming pump cap and carefully mix the container. The rocks will do most of the work for you.

Step 6: You are ready to pump away and viola foaming hand soap with all of the goodness of Thieves essential oil.

Young Living Thieves Oil has antiviral and antiseptic properties.  This oil blend contains the oils of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus and Rosemary.
