Staying Healthy The ONatural Way – #ONatural

Staying Healthy with Orange Naturals

School started about a month ago, and I’m happy to say that I didn’t keep Emanuelle home once. Just in case you forgot: when Ema was attending daycare I would keep her home as soon as I heard there were cases of “sickness” at daycare. You can read up on it here: A new routine is starting soon. Aren’t you proud of me? I sure am! Avoiding places were she could potentially get sick was not the way to go. I was mostly doing it because when she would get sick, she’d get very sick. Colds always go directly to her lungs. Which … {continue reading}

Easy and Delicious Apple Pie – How to make an Apple Pie

Easy and Delicious Apple Pie - How to make an Apple Pie

I crave pie, often. I especially crave pie during apple season. There’s just something comforting about an apple pie, wouldn’t you agree? The thing is, I used to just buy my pies. Yep, I didn’t make pies. Why? Because for some reason making pie crusts turns me off. I’m certain I’m not the only one who avoids making pie crust. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean I can’t make a delicious apple pie. Which means, you can too! I started buying pie crusts and just make my own filling. Quite honestly… I find it tastes and looks like it was completely homemade. Easy … {continue reading}
