10 Layer Cookies!!! These look so yummy #better health solutions #health tips #better health naturally #health care #healthy eating
10 layer bars (Because 7 layers just aren't enough) Seven Layer Cookies (& How They Became Ten Layer Cookies) A "Best of" Inn Cuisine, original recipe courtesy the 1785 Inn as featured in the 13th Annual Holiday Inn to Inn Cookie & Candy Tour presented by the Country Inns in the White Mountains, adapted versions courtesy Inn Cuisine. Yield: One 13x9-inch pan of layered cookie bars (12-24 cookies, depending on size cut) Ingredients: ½ cup butter 1 & 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips 2 cups butterscotch chips 7 ounces flaked coconut 2 cups chopped walnuts 1 can (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk Directions: Melt the butter in a saucepan and mix in the crushed graham crackers. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9”x13” pan. Layer in the chocolate chips, layer in the butterscotch chips, layer in the coconut, layer in the walnuts, and cover with the condensed milk. Bake at 350oF for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Cool and cut into squares. To Make As Ten Layer Cookies As pictured with this post Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter 1 & 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1 cup dark chocolate baking chips 1 cup butterscotch baking chips 1 cup Heath Milk Chocolate English Toffee baking chips 7 ounces sweetened angel-flake coconut 2 cups chopped walnuts 7 ounces canned Dulce de Leche 7 ounces sweetened condensed milk Directions: Melt butter in a saucepan and mix in the crushed graham crackers. Press the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13"x9" pan. Layer in the semisweet chocolate chips, layer in the dark chocolate baking chips, layer in the butterscotch baking chips, layer in the Heath Milk Chocolate English Toffee bits, layer in the flaked coconut, and layer in the chopped walnuts. In a small bowl, mix 7 ounces EACH (14 ounces in total) canned Dulce de Leche and sweetened condensed milk (warm in the microwave for a few seconds if necessary to blend and make pourable). Pour mixture evenly over layered ingredients. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan and cut into squares. Serve at room temperature. Note: like many prepared dishes, I found these cookies to taste even better the day after they were baked. Also, if you're interested in turning Ten Layer Cookies into Eleven Layer Cookies, consider adding a layer of miniature marshmallow as well (1 cup).

Being completely self-sufficient and living off the grid...not really decor, but house stuff.
Amazon.com: Off The Grid: Modern Homes + Alternative Energy (9781586855161): Lori Ryker: Books
Off the Grid confronts the ecological and cultural problems associated with the way we get and use energy, and explains how it is possible to live in a beautifully designed home using much less--no matter where your home is located. Our homes are connected by a nearly invisible grid of infrastructure that binds us together. It is a system of electrical poles, wire, substations, hydroelectric dams, telecommunication towers, and water extraction and sewage systems. From within this system we work, play, and raise families. We have also created one of the greatest environmental challenges known to modern civilization. The signs of our impact upon the world can be recognized in the reports of environmental changes occurring across the earth, and they can also be seen in the growing failures of the energy grids across the world as the current system is stressed beyond its capacity. Technologies that can be used to live off the grid (geothermal energy use, wind turbines, photovoltaic arrays, micro hydropower, rainwater collection and reclamation, and more) are explained as author Lori Ryker shows how to choose and incorporate these sources according to geography and climate. Off the Grid beautifully illustrates that this is not just a concept for rural living; examples of homes that are "off the grid" to varying degrees are found in New York City; Ontario, Canada; Stuttgart, Germany; Belmont, California; Pipe Creek, Texas; Clyde Park, Montana; Twin Lakes, Minnesota; Laytonville, California; Venice, California; and New South Wales, Australia. Off the Grid shows how we can take responsibility for our future choices and conveniences now, and proves that off-the-grid living is a concept that can be easily understood and adopted by everyone, regardless of where you live or how much money you make. Lori Ryker grew up in Texas and has lived and worked in a variety of locations, including Boston, New York City, Portland, and Basel, Switzerland. She now resides in Livingston, Montana, where she teaches in the School of Architecture at Montana State University and is a partner, along with Brett W. Nave, of Ryker/Nave Design. Their work has been published in The House You Build, and Western Interiors and Design. Ryker holds a MArch from Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Ph.D. from Texas A & M University. She is the author of Mockbee Coker: Thought and Process.

Most Popular Herbs for Healthy Living - 10961395-medicinal-herbs
Top Ten Medicinal Herbs for a Survival Garden: Cayenne Pepper – (Capsicum minimum) “Cayenne pepper is a powerful stimulant, producing a sense of heat in the stomach, and a general glow over the body without a narcotic effect. A few grains in hot tea will aid in sluggish digestion and flatulence.” (Source – Herbal Medicine: The Natural Way To Get Well and Stay Well) This pepper can assist as a digestion aid. Using sparingly, sprinkle a bit over food or in a hot soup. Cayenne pepper is a good source of Vitamin C. Mixing cayenne pepper to a citrus drink such as grapefruit juice can be a very effective energizing drink. Cayenne pepper can be used to combat a sore throat and can also be used in a sore throat gargle mix. An effective anti flu drink uses 2 tsp. of cayenne pepper, 1 1/2 tsp. of salt, 1 cup of boiling water, 1 c. apple cider vinegar. Most adults can take between 1 tsp.-1 tbls. every half hour. Sprinkling cayenne pepper in shoes will warm the feet when it is cold outside. Caution: it will stain the area where it is sprinkled, but it is quite effective. Cayenne has a history of being used during malignant sore throats and in scarlet fever where it is used internally and as a gargle. Cayenne tea can be used as a control for internal or external bleeding and should be used for those health emergencies where no medical or nursing help is available. A few grains on the gums of cayenne will smart on the gum, and in a cavity and act as a temporary pain alleviator. Chamomile – (Anthemis nobilis ) This herb is known for it’s uses as a mild sedative. Some homeopathic and natural remedies for children with ADD/ADHD have used chamomiles calming properties. The flowers can be strained out of the tea and placed into a warm compress to use on ear infections. Tea compresses and tea rinses can be used to treat eye problems. It also has the power to assist in healing of indigestion, morning sickness, nervousness, neuralgia, painful periods and assists as a sleeping agent. Dandelion – (Taraxacum officinale) The salt in this plant acts to neutralize the acids in the blood and is considered a cleaning tonic. When the flowers and a few leaves are gathered and made into a tea that treats biliousness (gastric disorder caused by liver or gall bladder disorder) and reducing ankle swelling. To jump start a slow functioning liver, drink two to four ounces of freshly sliced dandelion root in two pints of water until the water is reduced to 1 ounce. A coffee can be made from the root to cleanse the liver and also has a tonic effect on the pancreas, the spleen and the female organs. If a person is suffering from gallstones, dandelion can also be used. Combine an ounce of each: dandelion root, parsley root, lemon balm with a half ounce each of licorice root and ginger root. Add two quarts of boiling water, simmer down to one quart, strain the liquid and drink a half glass every two hours. The Chinese “barefoot doctors” use the entire dandelion in their healing practices. The leaves and the tops are simmered together in a decoction, or they are crushed and used as a poultice for boils and abscesses on the body. Dandelion has also been known to lower elevated cholesterol levels, as well as normalize blood sugar levels in diabetics, and can also help cure symptoms of gout due to its uric acid content. Additionally, young leaves can be gathered in the spring time to make a lovely salad or a steamed side dish. Echinacea – (Echinacea Paradoxa, Echinacea angustifolia, Echinacea pallida) There are three types of echinacea plants, and all have the same healing properties. The chemical constituents are different in some, but the healing is the same. Although the root is most widely used for it’s medicinal purposes, truly the entire plant can be used.

For cases that are not strep throat related: add 10-16 drops to water or to sage or ginger tea and use as a gargling agent. If a person is fighting strep throat: every two hours, gargle with the above mentioned teas to which add a dropful of echinacea extract. If only tablet or capsules are available, take then every two hours during the acute stage. It also helps eliminates mucus and phlegm associated with certain respiratory conditions.
