I love Salmon.  Not only is it yummy for my tummy, it is also healthy for my body!!  My kids and husband love it as well so I try to make salmon at least once a month.  I can usually find it on sale and when I do I try to stock up for at least two weeks.

I am always experimenting with different sauces and spices because well that’s what I do; KICK up the FLAVOR!  When mixing this flavorful dijon mustard lime sauce I was a little nervous about how it would turn out, but honey honey honey – WHEW it was so freaking frat good!  I mean the kind of good that makes you just step back for a moment, embrace the moment and enjoy the flavor!

Hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I have!

Yeah baby!!

Recipe: Stay Away Stretch Marks, Hello Belly Butter

Belly-Butter-And-Then-Some-really-close

While having a baby is exciting there is one thing most women fear – STRETCH MARKS!  When I was pregnant with my daughter in 2002, I was paranoid about getting stretch marks.  I’d seen friends and family members’ stretch marks as a result of having a baby.  And I was terrified of what having this angel would do to my body!  But I didn’t just sit around and wait for it to happen; I took matters into my own hands!

I did some research on ingredients I could use that would help prevent stretch marks.  I then concocted this glorious mixture that saved my skin, LITERALLY!!  There was no real reason or rhyme for the amounts I added in or the combination, I just used those things I’d read were healthy for the skin.  BUT honey honey honey, IT WORKED!  Now I had to do my part and that was for the 7 months I had left of my pregnancy I vowed to slather my belly, breast and hips with this Belly butter faithfully every night and every morning … well in the morning I only rubbed a little on because it is greasy!!  At night I bought inexpensive t-shirts because I knew it would get greasy!!  I told my husband “if I should sleep before I slather, grease my belly well”!

Absolutely NO STRETCH MARKS was my result!  I was so happy…. I documented the recipe because when I had my son in 2005, I gained far more weight than I did when I had my daughter!  But again, I slathered every night and rubbed every morning and AGAIN NO STRETCH MARKS!!

Then one of my best friends got pregnant and she shared with me she was using a popular stretch mark cream but was still experiencing itching sensations.  So I made up a batch for her.  She told me the itchy feeling went away immediately and after she gave birth was pleased to report NO STRETCH MARKS!  Another best friend had a baby girl – gave her some, same results NO STRETCH MARKS!  Now while I cannot guarantee this recipe will work for you, I can attest that it worked for me twice and on two other girlfriends.

OH and let me not forget to tell you, I’ve also used this butter on scars, bug bites, and dry feet!  HA – LOVE THIS BUTTER!!  Try it and share the love!  Whether you are making it for yourself, gifting it or passing along the recipe, you will LOVE IT!
