Don’t forget about me… I’m still here. I’m sure you’ve forgotten but please, please… please stay with me!

Bare Natural Mommy is no more, well, really I’m still here, but instead it has been reborn into…




What. On earth.  Is farmgirls you may ask……


My lovely twin sister and I have joined forces. To create, just wait, the natural, handmade, anti-aging serum line called…

You guessed it.. FARMGIRLS. Our all natural, handmade, local ingredient skincare line. We are “Coming Soon” but website is almost done and products are almost there. Check it out at FarmGirls, and message us! Any feedback is appreciated.  I will be blogging on the FarmGirls website and even throwing in a delicious and tasty recipe here and there. I mean come on, I am still all natural and I believe in food from scratch.  I also believe that what we put on our skin is just as important as what we put in our bodies.  There will be freebies, prizes, and lots of blogging, so subscribe to FarmGirls to keep in the loop.

Check us out and let me know what you think. We are still in the works, you can place orders ahead of time and we also custom order.

Clam Linguine with Crispy Prosciutto in White Wine Sauce

Linguine alle vongole (linguine with clams) …


My twin sister first started making this recipe. It was always a dish my mom would order when we went out to fancy restaurants as a kid. Seafood is one of our favorite foods and this combines pasta and seafood and white wine. Don’t forget to pour a glass while you’re cooking. :) « Read the rest of this entry »

Brown Butter – Let the magic begin

September 17, 2013 § 5 Comments

I’m obsessed with brown butter.


I know, it’s like I’ve been living under a rock because it’s kinda been around for awhile, but I have an excuse. Remember…? I live in a village of 250 people?? I started hearing about brown butter on cooking shows. Gordon Ramsey’s Masterchef. Jessie, one of the contestants, talked about a brown butter dessert she was making. I thought to myself “hmmmm… I love butter. I wonder what brown butter is…”

Miscellaneous Medley

1.  My dog needed grooming. I kind of did things completely opposite and didn’t mean to! It’s the end of summer and I get my dog groomed… procrastination is my enemy. My husband and I have a bichon shih tzu. We have had him for 4 wonderful years, his name is Whiskey. This little cute bichon shih tzu was supposed to be 11 pounds… at least that’s what they told us at Toys R Us when we bought him. Well he grew… and he grew.. and he grew. He is not 11 pounds, he’s 30!!! Ok, so he’s not the cute, tiny, fluffy little guy we were picturing, but he’s our Whiskles and he’s got tons of personality. Don’t bug him in the morning, he’s grumpy. :) And if you kick him off your spot in the couch, he will jump right back up to that same spot the minute you leave.

Here is his before:


Whiskey before

That’s “the spot” on the couch…. don’t bug him.
