Organic Baby Lotion for More than Just Babies

emab

Not all baby lotions are alike. Not all organics are the same either. When an organics company comes along that offers products for all stages of baby and motherhood you cannot help to take notice. Especially when the product is more than a gimmick and more than just a brand, but an organization that is passionate about organics and creating safe products for babies, children, mama’s and beyond. This is the story of Earth Mama Angel Baby.

I had the unique opportunity to receive and try Earth Mama Angel Baby products in my home. Knowing I could not use them all myself I shared with my friends who had a new baby. My babies are all grown so we couldn’t use the products the way they were meant.

They were struggling with their little girl at the time with her sleep habits. When they saw this wonderful gift to share their immediate response was “MONEY!” The next time we saw them they were ecstatic, sharing how awesome the product felt and how gentle it was on their baby girl’s skin. Plus the soothing and calming effect of lavender, wash and bed time eased their lives and their baby girl’s nerves.

organic lotion, earth mama angel babyI couldn’t have agreed more since I was using the Angel Baby Lotion with the light vanilla, orange scent. The lotion is silky smooth, hydrating, and free of harsh preservatives and chemicals. I love this lotion! One of my favorite lotions and not just for babies. Living in Arizona proves to have some harsh climates from our dry winters to our blistering hot and dry summers. Properly hydrated and moisturized skin is essential to healthy skin. With proper moisturizing also comes with proper ingredients like the organic, water based products of Earth Mama Angel Baby.

Earth Mama Angel Baby is like a boutique product but available everywhere. Their product line varies from pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding, infancy and beyond. From baby lotions to teas, to soaps and essential oil sprays. You can shop online or use their store locator to find a retailer in your area. Choose from a wide assortment of baby lotion products, breastfeeding products, teas and more. Earth Mama Angel Baby is serious about providing a variety of safe, natural, organic, healthy products to mama’s and baby’s everywhere.

BACON! Meat candy and secret addition to any awesome dessert, adding a bit extra salt and a smokey flavor that is sure to be pure decadence. Put your meat candy to work with bacon grease instead of shortening. You can spice up the flavor an extra notch with bacon grease. I have done three dessert treats with bacon grease and they were to die for. Here is my gluten free, Boston Cream Pie cupcake recipe that is sure to be a hit!

boston cream pie, cupcakesLight Yellow Cake:
3/4 c. cooled, solid bacon grease
2T. butter (for a less rich cake, increase the butter and decrease the bacon grease)
1 7/8 c. sugar
2 large eggs
2 3/4 c. flour (I love my Pamela’s gluten free)
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

  • Beat eggs and sugar until blended, add in butter and bacon grease and beat until fluffy. Sift together baking powder and flour. Slowly fold in flour mixture while alternating adding milk and vanilla. Beat until well blended.
  • Pour into lined cupcake tins and bake for 18-25 mins at 350 degrees.

Cream filling:
2 c. milk
5 T. cornstarch
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp. fresh vanilla bean

  • Place cornstarch in sauce pan, add sugar and slowly fold in milk while stirring with whisk. Cook over medium heat, slowly add in vanilla and continue cooking until mixture is very thick. Remove from heat and allow to cool entirely.
  • Once mixture is completely cooled, place into frosting bag with narrow coupler.

Chocolate Ganache frosting:
1 package chocolate chips
1 c heavy cream
1 tsp brandy

  • In medium sauce pan heat chips and brandy slowly adding cream, stirring constantly until mixture is smooth and glossy. Remove from heat, allow to cool before frosting cake.
  1. Once your cupcakes, frosting, and pudding are cool you can begin the layers of goodness. Using your frosting bag and narrow coupler, insert the coupler into the middle of the cupcake and fill until you see the pudding rising out of the top of where the coupler is inserted. Or with the Mrs Fields pan, you can easily add the pudding without the hassle of the frosting bag.
  2. Do this for each cupcake until all pudding is used and or all cupcakes are filled to desired fullness.
  3. Place cupcakes on cooling rack and place foil underneath cooling rack. Begin to slowly drizzle frosting over the tops of cupcakes ensuring that frosting is not too hot or too cold. Each cupcake will be glossy. Allow the layer of frosting to cool before adding more. If the frosting in pan becomes hard, reheat on medium heat until desired consistency and start process of frosting again. Do this until all cupcakes are covered and frosting is completely used.
  4. Set cupcakes aside in fridge to allow frosting to harden overnight.
  5. Serve with milk and enjoy.

Baking with Kids

baking with kids, kids cook, kids bake, kids cookbook

Last year I had the blessing to stay home with my kids and keep them occupied over the summer. Charades, swimming and bike rides can only fill so many hours and minutes of a kids day. So this summer we are taking fun up a notch. With my love of food, grilling, cooking and baking, the kids started to catch on. Along with their desire to help, we had a winning combination. So I took advantage of my love of baking, their help, and a new way to bond as a family. I also had a great guide that was driven more for their audience so I could cater to their needs as kids in the kitchen. [click to continue…]

Rules of Engagement

You mother…you son of a…you, you, you. Finger wagging. Name calling. Hurt. Anger, borderline rage. Do these sound familiar in your arguments? A good argument is one that hashes out the issues, with emotion, love, and some compromise. [click to continue…]

The day I was thankful my son lost

boys at airport

Brandishing the official Boy Scouts uniform on a stage in front of 400 students he was eloquent. The boy had his very adult speech typed and held in front of him. He paused just as we had practiced. My heart was full of joy for him in his strength and bravery. I surely did not have his courage and tenacity to run for student council when I was his age. Tears were welling in my eyes as I was that proud mom. So after the dust settled and the ballots were cast, counted, announced, my baby boy came home strong as an ox in his feelings. When I asked, he broke down in a heap and mess of tears. In that moment I was thankful he lost for student council. [click to continue…]

When Mothers Day Sucks

Unhappy Twins

Many moons ago I wrote this angry post about Mother’s Day and how horribly it sucked. I was a terrible communicator back then, my writing was uber raw, so my well intentions to support mothers in an everyday fashion went awry. I have since modified that post and felt it needed a revival from the years ago about why Mothers Day sucks. [click to continue…]
