Health, Beauty, and Natural Hair

I want to say something about health and beauty. Don’t let anyone make you feel superficial for caring about either one. You are entitled to feel comfortable in your own skin and I don’t think you should stop until you get there. It takes a lot of time and even more patience, but it will come.

You’ll have to find out what works and that means finding out what doesn’t work. You’ll get compliments and you also get judgments. Take me for example: I spent most of my life hating my hair and it’s only been the past couple of years that I’ve really grown to love it and what do you know – – in my loving it it has bloomed and so have I. I think that’s a lesson for me in other areas in my life. I hope its a lesson for you, too.

I’ve attached a few videos related to reaching optimal health and things for healthy hair.

Lots of love!!!

How to Make Fettunta (Italian Garlic Bread)

Fettunta is of my favorite things to serve as a part of heavy appetizer or to go alongside a yummy stew during the wintertime. If you haven’t heard of fettunta, it is Italian version of garlic bread. It’s full of flavor, and you toast it until it’s crisp around the edges but still soft in the center.

You will need:
Bread
Olive oil
Garlic
Baking sheet

*The bread you see in the video is a bit of a unique color because I used kalamata olive ciabatta.

1. Slice garlic bread into 3/4 inch slices and place on baking sheet.

2. Drizzle or brush with olive oil.

3. Cook on broil setting for approximately 5 minutes, being sure not to burn or over toast bread.

4. Remove and rub with with a clove of garlic or the entire bulb with the cloves exposed. The flavor is best if this part is done when the bread is still pretty warm.

Enjoy!

I’ve made a video making this yummy and easy bread as well:

The Mason Jar Cookie Company

sugar cookies with sprinkles and m&Ms

Mason jars are still all the rave, and I love that this cookie company has used them in a fun and cute way! The Mason Jar Cookie Company sells mason jars filled with all the ingredients to make delicious cookies, and all you need to add is a few additional ingredients like eggs or butter. I made a video of my review, baking, and tasting the cookies. Absolutely scrumptious! They were nice enough to offer a free jar with cookie batter to one lucky subscriber! Check it out and enter! Good luck!

The UK Travel Edition | The FifiCakes Replay

I’m currently in London having a complete blast! I will be posting a series of vlogs sharing what I ate, where I went and who I met. It’s been so much fun and I cannot wait until my next adventure! Here’s the first! Make sure you watch till the very end so you can see the extraordinary dining experience I had at Inamo, a fusion style Japanese restaurant that uses very forward thinking technology. My only complaint about this place was that they did not allow us to take food home! Rather odd since the portions were large! Anyway, enjoy!
