The immediate benefit to exfoliating is that it removes dead skin and encourages skin cell renewal, for younger looking skin. If you incorporate an exfoliating scrub into your skincare regimen once a week, the long term benefits include a reduction of dark spots, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

I've created three different DIY exfoliating masks to meet different skincare needs and to match different skin types. Each mask is formulated with an essential oil to enhance those skincare benefits. Though you could omit them and just use the first two ingr…

My Best Desserts for Spring


I do love fall desserts - pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and pretty much anything with cranberries. But Spring has its own set of yummy flavors. Things like coconut, banana cream, lemon, and strawberries are just a few of the flavors I love to use in my spring baking.

Of course you can't have Easter brunch without carrot cake. You can check out my classic spiced carrot cake here, or you can explore this roundup of 25 Ways to Make Carrot Cake. Pictured: Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting by Serena of Domesticate Me


Banana Cream pie is often served during the holidays, but it works just as well for Spring. I love this Banana Cream Tart recipe I came up with a few years ago. It's a lighter version of a traditional banana cream pie, but is definitely just as yummy!


A classic white cake is the perfect canvas for many spring desserts. You can completely change up the flavor by adding things like lemon zest, coconut flakes, fresh strawberries, etc. To make it from scratch, start with this Perfect White Cake Recipe.
