  1. Thanks for hosting and for the feature, Mindy! Today I’ve linked up a yummy homemade fruit snack that’s good for you, too! :)

  2. Thanks for hosting, Mindy! I linked to one of my favorite comfort dishes—Aloo Gobi. It’s an Indian dish that uses a cancer-fighting cruciferous vegetable (cauliflower!) and turmeric, which is also cancer-fighting. It’s comforting and warm and delicious. :)

  3. Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing 3 posts: Genetic Roulette Movie, Arsenic and (Old) Rice, and GMO Corn is here. looking forward to reading the other posts!

  4. I shared my quick and easy recipe for Spicy Gulf Shrimp.

    Hi :) I’m so excited to get some time at my girls’ naptime later to read through all these :)

    I’m sharing how I make and use elderberry syrup in the fall and winter to keep us healthy, how I render leaf lard in the crockpot, a great pumpkin spice coffee, and my favorite way to make applesauce :) Have a great week!

  10. Thanks for hosting Mindy!

    Today, I’m sharing my favorite way to stay out of the coffee shops. Spiced Cranberry Apple Cider is a safe way to have a treat made with only real ingredients and safe for special diets like GAPS and those with food allergies. Best part, no added sweeteners needed!
