New Ingredient-Inspired Dish Liquid from Palmolive

Inspiration in the kitchen starts with the inviting scents and elegant simplicity that are infused throughout the room. New Palmolive® Fresh InfusionsTM Dish Liquid blends premium design with naturally inspired fragrances to help enhance the overall look and feel of your kitchen. The trusted Palmolive® dish liquid formula is available in three scents – Lime Basil, Lemon Thyme, and Ginger White Tea – so that kitchens across the country will be infused with freshness and
dishes will be left sparkling clean.

My favorite one has to be the lemon thyme scent. For me, anything lemony just screams clean to me, so how could I not like this scent? Even though these Palmolives smell great, they work great too! I can only recommend them!

The Artisan Soda Workshop

Like most Americans, I am a soda fan. Yes, I know that I probably drink too much soda, so I try and make it as good for me as possible.

With “The Artisan Soda Workshop” recipe book, you can make your own refreshing, all-natural sodas at home (with or without a SodaStream). With 70 palate-pleasing recipes, step-by-step instructions and dozens of colorful photos, this book makes it easy to create your own fruit, herb and spice syrups and bubbly concoctions for Pineapple-Basil soda, Sparkling Rosemary-Lemonade soda, and Hibiscus soda. You can also recreate your soda fountain favorites—cherry cola, root beer, cream soda—with at-home ingredients. There is even a chapter for alcohol enhanced drinks.  For me, I love that I can make personal favorite sodas like root beer.  I also love that I can make strawberry soda too (another favorite of mine!).

If you want to make your own homemade soda, I highly recommend getting a copy of The Artisan Soda Workshop.
