We made a return trip to Cuba this summer, nothing better than feeling at home in a beautiful country surrounded by wonderful family and friends.

|I had a quick little Jamberry Nails online party a few weeks ago....this were my goodies. I got some freebies, and the hostess gift for the month of March, and I bought a few too!|
|The right hand was slightly more beat up on day 8, there was a chunk missing from my ski boot buckle, it tried to eat my finger!! still shinning though, I could have gotten another few days, but I was itching to try new ones.|
|A close up of some of the wraps, they are fabulous!|
|With some of my rewards I bought the heater, it's worth it for hands free application, though you can use a blow drier.|
|My rep also included a manicure set with my nails, and the Jamberry folder was a gift too, so thoughtful and sweet!|
|I do like so many designs, these don't seem like enough!|
|These are the little Momo's I put on my son, you can see that a week later and they are still like new. He had his on for a total of 18 days. They began to get caught in his hair, so we removed them...thinking Jamberry is for him too!|
|This is my second Jamicure...the March Hostess Gift...isn't it just gorgeous?|
Isn't it just fantastic? To have pretty nails, for weeks at a time and not have to worry about nicks and flaking polish, paying $40 per manicure or another $25 for a fill....you can get 2 manicures and two pedicures out of one sheet for $17 Canadian. I think it's worth it!!

|A couple months ago, I came across something called Cassava Bread, I jumped at trying it because it is one of the paleo friendly starches, and it's not a grain. I am not 100% paleo, I love my cheese...however I am grain free and this gives me a bit of fuel/carbs that my belly can handle. I then started researching the one ingredient, Cassava flour, and found some at the Latino store. The stuff I found first was seasoned and had MSG, which I don't like. Then I found this brand, Julia White Cassava Flour. I've been experimenting with it, making all sorts of yummies. It is quite interesting, and not like anything I've used before, a bit like coconut flour, it absorbs a lot of liquid. It makes a crunchy texture on the outside and a slightly chewy texture on the inside depending on what you use it with. I am going to try it as the coating for chicken next. It is a great replacement for making nut free paleo foods.I will take the time to blog about the recipes on another post, this one is to give you the heads up...there are wonderful foods to discover when going grain free.|
|I made a nice loaf for crackers using ground pumpkin seeds along with Cassava flour and Chia seeds, moist and sturdy as a loaf, crisp and light as a cracker. I will do a post with the recipe for this.|
|These are the specs...pretty simple.|
