Olive leaf tea: Recent studies proved that the leaves of olives contain olearopein, a potent antiviral and antibacterial constituent, which improves circulation and lowers blood sugar levels. When taken daily the tea can lower high blood pressure and increases natural immunity. It is known to energize and treats chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, cystitis, fevers, flu, disorientation, dizziness, and depression.
Meanwhile cold tea can be used as a wash to treat cuts, rashes, itchiness and sunburn.

Edible Flower Challenge.
We had both a sedate cat named Daisy and a crazy cat named Mazie. To honor their memory in my garden, I planted crazy daisies. Not only are they pretty (and pretty crazy), they are edible! I found a recipe for spicy daylilies and daisies from ediblewildfood.com, and decided to modify it to only use crazy daisies. They can be used in many ways, including in sandwiches. And since I always try to end a sandwich meal with a pickle, now I can end the meal with a pickled flower instead. No disrespect intended, Daisy and Mazie!
Incidentally, Mazie always liked to "help" me with my many projects, so the stitching for this illustration, real and drawn, was done in her memory.
Punch is a very popular mexican drink and this is a family recipe that we usually drink for Christmas, but, after some very bad allergies this winter season, we noticed that this punch really calmed down my snizzes, thanks to all the vitamin c from all the delicious ingredients. So we´re sharing it with the world! You don´t have to include all the ingredients but a heads up, the Jamaica it´s the wow factor in here
The following Illustrated recipe is a tribute to Grandma and her love for cooking. This is also a tribute to all the love grandma's dedicate towards their grandchildren. This recipe is one of the best recipes that come from North Indian cuisine and one of my personal favorites!
One winter, I was able to escape to the Southern Hemisphere to visit a friend in Chile. After a tiresome plane ride, my friend picked me up and we hit the streets of Santiago. The sun was hot and the jet lag was setting in, so we stopped for one of Chile’s favorite treats: mote con huesillos. After we ordered, two cups were filled with cooked wheat berries, dried peaches and finally an icy sweet liquid steeped in peaches, sugar, cinnamon and orange. Standing there, under the hot afternoon sun and drenched in sweat from a day of exploring, it was a most welcome treat that reminded me of one of the reasons I love traveling.
