Lemon Yoghurt Pound Cake Recipe

Ain't no mountain high enough…. to keep me from getting to a moist pound cake. A loaf, a bundt, a round, a slice…never met one I didn't like. But this one I especially love…my Lemon Yoghurt Pound Cake - moist, zesty and delicious. Pound cakes are the plain janes of the dessert world, but that is what makes them so versatile - a blank canvas or shall I say, blank cake, to which you can add what you like. To this one I added Mountain High Plain Yoghurt & lemon.  Coupon here! The combination of the tangy yoghurt & zesty lemon make this plain pound cake one to turn heads. Mountain High has been in the yoghurt business since 1976.  Turning out container after container of simple healthy food, made in the … [Continue...]

Tips for a Healthier Home – from the floors up

The plush pink rug really made me consider... the "health" of my home. You see the dense pile pink rug covering the hardwood floor in my daughter's room was making her sick.  It had to go and naturally a room 're-do' commenced for both health & happiness! It took awhile to figure out the cause of her waking stuffed up & teary eyed, but we narrowed it down to the rug.

Faux Turf – Artificial Grass ~ A Guide
