Not your average brussels

 

Lucky for TEB (my sweet hubs), I am a pretty good cook. I grew up cooking with my mom and grandma. We were in the kitchen constantly. They were always teaching me their sweet southern ways, from canning tomato juice to shucking corn from the back of my grandpa’s pickup truck. Those memories are something I will never take for granted, and I owe it to them for my love of cooking and entertaining. As someone who loves to cook, I am constantly mixing spices and ingredients to make new flavors. Although, I personally leave out dairy, grains, and a few other things, it’s always fun to find new combinations and dishes.

This recipe is on constant rotation in our home. I make these brussels sprouts for a side dish at least once a month. It pairs well

with other veggies or even chicken or turkey.

Self-Tan Routine, The Safer Way

Recently over on insta stories I was raving about my new favorite safer self-tanner, Beauty By Earth. Last spring+summer I used another safer brand called Chocolate Sun that I liked ok, but didn’t love. So, this year I was determined to find one that performed better than Chocolate Sun and was also safe!

After two applications, I can say Beauty By Earth is a WIN in my book. It gives you a nice, even natural glow with some color, but not turning you orange. It also doesn’t smell like most sunless tanners do.

The key to a successful sunless tan is all in the routine. It may seem like a lot, but seriously doesn’t take that much time and is so worth it! This is the exact routine I have been following for a VERY LONG time and it works.
