  • Brains of nursing moms more aware of babies cries from MSNBC – “The brains of breast-feeding mothers show a greater response to the sound of their babies’ cries than do the brains of mothers who do not breast-feed, the study researchers say.”


  • How to Make Herb Infused Oils at Simple Organic – “Making your own infused oil is an easy project that you can do at home too, and there are so many different ways you can customize it to suit you and your family’s needs.”


  • Honey Almond Granola at What Megan’s Making – “I’m starting to think that cereal (especially the kind he prefers) isn’t necessarily the healthiest choice. Enter: homemade granola! I’ve made granola plenty of times in the past, but to be honest, most of the time I just don’t get around to making it on a regular basis. However, with a recipe this easy, there really is no excuse to not have it on hand all the time.”
  • Simple Summer Herbs: Refreshing Infusions at Keeper of the Home – “There are some standard herbs that make wonderful tea – mint, lemon balm, lemon verbena – but don’t limit yourself! One of my new favorite summer blends is a combination of lemon basil, basil, lemon rind, and stevia leaf.”
