Moisturizing Face Scrub

I get very dry, flaky skin in winter and no amount of fancy washes or moisturizer helps! I mixed a bit of olive oil with a bit of sugar, enough of each to make a paste. Rub it into your skin, especially on dry areas, and rinse with a warm water. Using a face cloth makes sure you get all of the oil off.
Follow with a good moisturizer.

Mess- free olive oil bottle

Catch the drips that form down the sides of the olive oil bottle with this simple, inexpensive solution.


Center the bottom of the bottle on a square of paper towel. Bring the towel up around the sides of the bottle (like you were wrapping a wine bottle as a gift) The paper towel will only come up about halfway up the sides of a small olive oil bottle.
Secure with a thick rubber band - I use the bands that come around broccoli for this.

Oil spray bottle for misting pans

I use a Misto spray bottle filled with olive oil for sauteing vegetables and fish. It adds a nice subtle flavor and is re-fillable and re-useable. Great for me and the planet! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Keep oil bottles clean

Pouring from my olive oil bottle can cause drips to flow down the side of the bottle, making a mess. I solved this problem by setting the bottle on a folded square of paper towel, pulling the towel up around the sides of the bottle (as if you were wrapping a bottle of wine) and securing the paper towel around the bottle with a rubber band. The towel catches any drips that may occur. Change the towel every few months. Clean bottle and hands! :-)

Easy "Green" Wood cleaner/polish

Instead of furniture polish I use a dab of olive oil with a few drops of lemon juice on my cloth. It keeps the wood healthy and looking good... it is also very inexpensive.

Calorie Recipes!!!

The sparkrecipes are very good and heaven knows I love to COOK and EAT! But sometimes just tweaking a recipe a little by substituting a lower calorie ingredient can help lower the calories OVERALL and each LITLE BIT HELPS!
I 'll list two substitutions I use regularly~

I LOVE my Misto!!

I bought a Misto from Bed Bath and Beyond a few weeks ago and absolutely love it!! You just fill with any type of oil you like, pump a few times for pressure and spritz! It makes it so easy to lightly spritz veggies before roasting or spritzing a pan lightly instead of drizzling too much!

Change your cooking oil

Replace any cooking oil with canola and/or olive oils. A little more heart healthy.

Baking - Substitute Apple Sauce For Oil

Instead of oil, substitute an equal amount of no added sugar (with out artificial sweeteners) apple sauce for oil. This works great in cakes, etc.
