Grossest Post Ever (Removing Moles)

This will probably be the weirdest and grossest post I will ever make.  However, I want you all to know about this awesome home remedy.  I have a few moles on my body that make me feel very insecure about myself.  While they aren’t huge and are in places that people normally won’t see I always feel like people are staring when I have my swimsuit on. 

I have wanted to have them removed forever but couldn’t justify spending the money, it is pretty pricey from what I have been told.  So I decided to look into some home remedies.  The first one I tried was using tea tree oil and while it worked it took a couple of weeks.  The process was slow and only worked when I used the Doterra oil.  Young Living and the pharmacy brands had no effect.

Since I wanted to try something that might work a little faster I kept researching and found that apple cider vinegar is supposed to remove them.  Let me say now that this stuff is amazing.  The tea tree oil worked but it took awhile, the apple cider vinegar was super quick.  I was able to remove two moles on my back in less than a week.

So, I know you are all hooked and wanting to know how this process works.  What I do is get a cotton pad (the kind for removing make up) cut it into fourths.  I pour some ACV on the pad and then secure it to the mole with a band aid or medical tape.  I tend to do this when I get home from work and then change it out again before bed time.  After a few applications the mole will start to change colors and you will notice that it has begun to shrink.  If you are diligent you can reduce the size in a day or two and have it completely gone in three days! 

Give it a try the crazy smell is definitely worth the results.

Sticky Bun Ring

This was yummy and really simple!

1 tube Pillsbury Grands biscuits
3 tablespoons butter (melted)
½ cup syrup
1/3 cup light brown sugar (packed)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup chopped pecans

Spray a fluted pan with non stick spray (I used a dutch oven because I couldn’t find my fluted pan).
Combine the melted butter and syrup in a small bowl and set aside.
In another bowl combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and nuts.
Pour ½ of the syrup mix in the bottom of the pan.
Sprinkle ½ of the brown sugar on top of the syrup.
Lay the biscuits on the bottom making sure to overlap them slightly.
Top with remaining syrup and brown sugar.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes till golden.
Let cool for a few minutes in the pan.
Invert onto a platter and then serve!




Hubby tried to help and flip the cinnamon ring... while it didn't work out so well for him it still tasted good.

Western Burgers


One of my coworkers had a birthday on Monday so we ordered food… one of our options was western burgers which I had completely forgotten about!  Remember when they served them in the cafeteria in elementary?  I remember them well but never ate them mainly because I am picky and NEVER ate anything from the cafeteria.

Anyway I decided that we should have them for dinner that night and since hubby had the day off I tweaked a recipe and sent it to him.  He got it started and when the kiddos and I got home I finished it up.  They were delicious and cheesy and ALL three of the kiddos loved them.   What more can you ask for?

Dough:
3 ½ cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup hot water
1 tablespoon active yeast
1 cup warm milk
3 tablespoons butter

Filling:
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 pound ground beef
2 teaspoons steak seasoning
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons Worcestershire ( I LOVE this stuff)
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
Velveeta

Dough:
Stir yeast and water together in a bowl.
Set aside for about ten minutes (it should foam).
While waiting melt 3 tb butter and stir into the milk.
In a large bowl combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar and salt.
When the yeast is ready add it to the milk mixture.
Next you will add the milk into the flour mixture.
Stir until smooth.
Now you add 1 cup of flour at a time until the dough becomes stiff (not sticky).
Dump dough onto the counter and knead it for a few minutes. 
Place the dough into a well greased bowl and let rise for about an hour.
Divide the dough into 8 balls and let rise again while you work on the filling.

Filling:
Heat oil in a large skillet.
Add onion powder and garlic powder let it become aromatic.
Now add the meat, and remaining dry seasonings to the skillet.
Next add the worcestershire and the tomato sauce.
Once the meat has simmered for about 6 minutes remove from heat and allow to cool.

Assembly:
Roll dough into rectangles.
Add velveeta cheese and then top with the meat mixture.
Fold in the edges and pinch together to seal the seams.
Make sure to seal it well or you will have a mess!
Place the burger on a baking sheet seam side down.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20- 25 minutes.

Let cool for several minutes before serving.
