This recipe was passed to me by Anja, a friend in Germany. I love it because is simple and delicious 🙂
*“Schmand” is a fresh cream (similar to Crème Fraiche or whipping cream) that has a spoon-firm consistency. It is a lot like sour cream and has a has a lower fat content than Creme Fraiche. It is used in baking and cooking. If you don’t find something similar, a pureed combination of cream cheese and cottage cheese is a great way to make a substitution for it. Smooth 16 ounces of Cottage Cheese in a blender, then add one 8 ounce package of Cream Cheese and blend well.
Eat Good, Feel Good!

Homemade shaving options for men
Most of my posts are geared toward women, but I’ve gotten several requests on Facebook for natural skincare options for men, and shaving is a big part of skin care for most men.
While I obviously have no firsthand experience with this, I interviewed by husband and did some research on The Art of Manliness about the best shaving options for men.
I’ve been making my husband’s shave soap, after shave, and facial rinse for years because he has such thick hair that regular products didn’t work and just irritated his skin. He also switched to an old fashioned razor and a brush shaving set a few years ago and he loves it.
Ladies, if you’ve been looking for a unique and usable gift for your husband, boyfriend, or dad, a real shaving kit with some homemade products is a great option!
