Garlic and Herb Whole Wheat Pasta

growing up in an Italian family we ate really nothing but pasta. Well that was fine until I started getting older and needed less carbohydrates in my life. So in compromise of being Italian and being healthy I decided to start making my own pasta! My favorite thing about making my own is I can have a healthy LARGE serving of pasta with 1/2 the calories and really no preservatives. Today I made Garlic and Herb whole wheat pasta and boy is it amazing!Here is what you need:
  • 3 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Cup of Water
  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 Teaspoons Roasted garlic olive oil(if you can't find this simply add a little garlic to a pan and cook till it is translucent. Then allow to sit in your oil for a couple hours ;O) )
Now I have a pasta machine and have never tried making it without a So simply put all ingredients in your machine and turn to mix. Once mixed extrude your pasta :O) I like to keep a fan blowing on my pasta to help it dry as it comes out.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
