Well the season is upon us and it is time to finish that last minute wrapping, prepare all those delicious old time favorite foods and make merry with all those you love and cherish all year long! 
There are so many favorite traditions that people all over the world enjoy at Christmas and through the holiday season and one of them is "cranberries"! The awesome food that does more than nourish the inside of the body, but  has also been found to nourish the skin! Did you know that this beautiful little berry is bursting with vitamin C which helps skin look radiant and refreshed, has plenty of natural acids to fight oil buildup and is deep cleaning, reaching into the pores and cleansing them with freshness! After washing up in the morning or before bed, try this great home astringent recipe that I found from beauty expert, Janice Cox author of "Natural Beauty at Home"
Combine 1/4 cup of pure cranberry juice with 1/4 cup of witch hazel (an old favorite) and soak a cotton ball with the mixture and apply to the face and neck (any left overs can be stored in the fridge) - then apply your moisturizer - that's it! Try it, your skin will love you for it!
This is an awesome home use book that you will cherish having, full of awesome money saving ways to take control of your healthy living!



If your not into making your own, this is an awesome place to find what your looking for!

For those who are of the traditional lifestyle of turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, vegs and home baked deserts, I have an awesome recipe, passed down from generations, that is mouth watering, tradition! 

Old Tyme Shortbread Cookies with Cranberries

Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees 
(if your oven cooks hot, use 280 degrees) 
Note: a stone-bake pizza pan works great instead of 
the traditional metal cookie sheet
Leave out to soften, 1 cup butter - when soft, mix butter with 1/2 cup of sugar, gradually adding the sugar while mixing - pour out 2 1/4 cups of flour into measuring cup and gradually add the flour to the butter and sugar, all the while mixing - add your favorite dried cranberries, folding them into the batter you have just made - lightly flour a surface to turn/nead the dough on - roll out to 1/4 or 1/2 inch thickness and cut into circles, shapes, Santa's, whatever your little heart desires for this time of the year, get the kids involved and have them make fun and festive cookie shapes! It's a blast to spend the time together and create yummy cookies that everyone loves!
Bake for 20 to 25 mins (keep your eye on them, you don't want them to color, just slightly)  Cool and Eat!! Enjoy!

For those who have special diets and needs concerning flours etc, you can modify the above recipe to suit your diet! Try using your favorite "natural, organic" flour, alternatives to sugar, like Stevia and natural, organic butter! 

Awesome articles to read and share that have so much information jam packed into them that you might want to grab a drink and put your feet up! How about a festive holiday "cranberry juice with...." your choice!
