I’m so happy that today Heather of My Life Well Loved asked me to share one of the most adorable, easy, and HEALTHY party treats I found this year.
One day I was in Sephora desperately trying to find a dry shampoo for my "reddish" hair. I couldn't find a product I had once used, and the employee said, "Oh this one will work GREAT for you!" So I blindly trusted and bought it.
It ended up being just the clear kind that doesn't look all white and dusty but also wasn't for dark, brunette hair, and it did not work very well. This set me out to google to find an alternative, and I read that cinnamon with a starch could do the trick. You KNOW with all the pumpkin-baking going on in this household we have cinnamon! So I decided to try it.
Now also -- just to clarify -- there are indeed dry shampoos that exist for redheads. I just needed something that week for my labor hospital bag, and didn't have time or money to go order, test, and possibly be disappointed. So if you're in a pinch like me... keep reading!
It's really funny to me that I even blog about food at all. Not that I label myself an actual "food blogger" or anything, but usually people who post recipes enjoy cooking a teensy bit more than I do! If you didn't gather from my whiny post about making homemade hotdog buns, cooking is not my most favorite thing.
To be really raw and honest, I've had to overcome a lot of stress and anxiety about food. I even went to a health counselor who helped me deal with some of my issues. Sensitive stomach problems, low blood sugar, worries about negative aspects of the food industry and eating clean made me actually wish that eating was not even a part of life. (I would hard-core dream of a pill that could make me not even need food. Pretty sad, I know.)
My health coach, Amanda, gave me this meal idea and it was like some kind of What about Bob therapy, for real! Baby steps. Whenever I didn't know what to eat, I would make this. Over three years later, and I'm still not even sick of it.
A few times in my adult life, my mom has reminisced about when she would make homemade buns to send in my school lunches... but if it wasn't for her storytelling I'm not sure I would've ever remembered them! This was a thought that spurred on the idea and purpose of this blog, so I figured I needed to set out to try making some homemade hotdog buns myself!
The verdict? They are delicious. Will I turn Suzy Homemaker and make these throughout Rowan's childhood. Yeeeeeah... about that... I'm gonna go with NOPE. Oh and Mom, I love you. You were really great for making these for me.
