I am always on the lookout for low calorie, fast, simple, and tasty recipes – and this one is a winner. Fast, tasty, and flexible – use it to clean out the fridge and use up the odds and ends in your veggie drawer.
Homemade Not Storebought
Why homemade? Because you know what’s in the recipe, there are generally no weird words included – and in many instances it’s much cheaper.

I have always hated cleaning windows until I accidentally stumbled on this idea for a streak free cleaner. Actually it’s been a work in progress for about 50 years. Many many years ago my dad had a gas station, you know the kind where you hire high school boys to pump gas and wash windshields. […]
