When I started making my own natural products for around my home, one of the hardest things for me to give up was my bleach-filled bathroom cleaner.  I knew how many germs gathered in the bathroom and I wanted to make sure that every time I cleaned it, they were GONE.   With this homemade cleaner, I feel just as confident that the germs are gone and it is great for sinks, toilets and showers and, the best part, no harmful chemicals! No more need to wear thick gloves or leave the bathroom window open and only clean when the kids are clear of the area due to toxic fumes.  In fact, now the kids can HELP with cleaning the bathroom!

Get it at Coborn’s

For this blog I used Veriditas Essential Oils from Coborn’s. Veriditas are Certified Organic and Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, conveniently sold at your local grocery store. In fact, I purchased all of the items for this blog at Coborn’s. From the Veriditas Essential Oils to the Empty Spray Bottle. You will typically find all of these items in the Natural Foods Department, however some Coborn’s stores have their natural and organic items integrated throughout the grocery store, so just ask an employee if you need some help. The distilled water is by the bottled water and I found the spray bottle by the brooms and other cleaners.

Remember to Pin this blog on Pinterest so you can save the recipe for next time.

You can also Click Here and print a label for your bottle. Simply open the file and print on Avery 42395 labels and stick to your bottle, or if you want to be crafty, you can cut around the shape to make it really cute.

In the recipe below it calls for 15 drops orange and 15 drops lemon. I actually use 8 drops of each. It is really your own preference, do what smells best to you.

Also note that depending on the size of your spray bottle, you may be able to double this recipe for twice as much cleaner!

National Prime Rib Day

National Prime Rib Day - www.cobornsblog.com

www.cobornsblog.com - Family, Friends & Food with Jayne

Jayne

On Monday, April 27th it is National Prime Rib Day and this is a perfect day for me to have an excuse to prepare Prime Rib. On second thought I don’t ever have to have an excuse to make Prime Rib because every day is a perfect day to prepare Prime Rib.

It used to be the only time you prepared Prime Rib was on a major holiday and for a large group of family or friends because you had to purchase the entire roast.  Well things have changed because now you can purchase individual slices of Pre-cooked Prime Rib steaks right out of Coborn’s Full Service Meat Case and because it is pre-cooked all you have to do is warm it up.  This couldn’t get any easier.

National Prime Rib Day - www.cobornsblog.comTo prepare the Certified Hereford Beef Pre-cooked Prime Rib Steaks, grill the meat by first using cooking spray on the grates before turning on the grill and then pre-heat the grill.  Then place the Pre-cooked Prime Rib on the grates and then grill until heated through. If you decide to heat it in the oven make sure your oven is pre-heated to 350 degrees. Then place the steaks in a glass dish and add just a little Au jus to cover the bottom. Bake until heated through, approximately 10 minutes.

Now if you decide you want to prepare a full raw roast instead of individual steaks here are some tips to help you when purchasing and preparing a full Raw Certified Hereford Prime Rib Roast.

You’ll Need:

  • One Raw Certified Hereford Beef Prime Rib Roast, 3 to 7 ribs
    (estimate serving 2 people per rib)
  • Four Brothers Prime Rib Seasoning

Remove the beef roast from the refrigerator for about 1-1/2 hours before you start to cook it. Sprinkle with Prime Rib Seasoning all over it and let stand, loosely wrapped in the butcher paper. Roasts should be brought close to room temperature before they go into the oven, to ensure more even cooking.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place the roast fat side up and rib bones down in a roasting pan. After browning the roast at 450 degrees in the oven for 15 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees. To figure out the total cooking time, allow 15-17 minutes per pound for medium rare which is 145 degrees. Check temperature of the roast using a meat thermometer 30 to 40 minutes before you expect the roast to be done. Once the roast has reached a temperature you want, remove it from the oven and place it on a carving board. Cover it with foil and let it rest for 30 minutes before carving. The internal temperature of the roast will continue to rise while the roast is resting. Cut away strings that were used to hold the roast to the rack of rib bones. Using a sharp carving knife, slice meat across the grain for serving, making the slices about ¼ to ½ inch thick.

Don’t forget to serve your Prime Rib with Au jus for an even beefier flavor and if your daring serve with horseradish.  Enjoy….I always do!

Weekly Ad Recipe – Grilled Pork Chops

Weekly Ad Recipe Grilled Pork Chops www.cobornsblog.com

Pork has always been known at “the other white meat”. Dark pink to dark reddish pink is the most desirable color to look for when buying pork. Darker, reddish pork will typically be juicier and more tender. Last week when we were grilling I decided to use the “All Natural” Compart Duroc Boneless Pork Chops and I couldn’t believe the taste and the tenderness. This was like no other pork that I have ever tried. It had more of the deep red color than any other pork on the market. This superior product is now a family favorite and will be used in many recipes. Enjoy….We all did!

Grilled Pork Chops
 
Ingredients
  • 4 Duroc Boneless Pork Chops, ¾ to 1” thick
  • ¾ tsp. Seasoned Salt
  • ¼ tsp. Pepper
Instructions
  1. Prepare the coals or a gas grill for direct heat.
  2. Heat to medium heat.
  3. Place pork chops on grill rack over medium heat.

  5. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper.

Spicing up your Ramen

Recipe for Spicing up your Ramen - www.cobornsblog.com

Coborn's Guest Blogger, Brenda - www.cobornsblog.comWhether by necessity or by choice, I’m sure there has been a time in your life when you have tried  Ramen Noodles. I introduced myself to Ramen while in college (like every other college student) and funds were scarce. Surprisingly, I was taken by its ease to make, its versatility and I have since enjoyed it over the years… by choice! Even my teenage kids are fans of it. So when I was approached about writing a guest blog about my recipe, I willingly accepted.

About a year ago, I was self-contained to my room at work for a few months on a very intense project. I had become very creative in my meals. Someone spotted me one day heating up a cup of Ramen Noodles and mentioned for me to enjoy my “gourmet” lunch. Little did she know that I was having a gourmet lunch and proceeded to tell her that it’s so good that she would probably want to blog about it! Low and behold 2 other people did see what I was eating and wanted to have some of my meal also!

So I am sharing my lunch with you today. If you refuse to eat Ramen noodles (like my husband) you may still want to try it as this recipe may change your mind! I just mixed in a flavor of something I knew I really loved to spice up my Ramen. There are many recipes out there using Ramen noodles. You would be surprised how these little crunchy noodles can be created into a delicious meal. Give them a try!

Mental note to self: Don’t ever mention that something is so good that you may want to blog about it unless I really want to blog about it!

Pink Polka Dot Cake

Pink Polka Dot Cake #DIY - www.cobornsblog.com

www.cobornsblog.com - Practical Party Planning with Holly

Holly

Well, my oldest daughter is now a three year old. Of course, as a Mom, I want to give her whatever she wants and this year, for her birthday, she wanted to have a pink bowling party. So we went bowling and ordered pizzas, pretty simple. But, I couldn’t just let it end with that. So we went back to our house and had cake, ice cream and presents!

Pink Party

Pink Party Ideas - www.cobornsblog.com

Practical Party Planning with Holly - www.cobornsblog.comWhen I asked Grace what kind of party she wanted, because if you know me you know there must be a theme, she said “pink”. Well we did PINK! For decoration we had pink tissue paper balls, pink balloons, pink crepe paper streamers, pink plates, pink polka dot treat bags, pink polka dot napkins, pink cups and pink polka dot straws. I served pink lemonade, pink ice cream and pink cake with pink icing. It was pretty cute and Grace loved it all. Planning any kind of get together can get really stressful, but as I was icing the cake and Grace looked and me and said “I really like my pink cake Mom!” it made all the fuss worth it.

With all of my pink decorations and white polka dots on the napkins, straws and crepe paper, I decided to make a polka dot cake to match. It turned out super cute and was really easy. So I want to share with you how I made it so you can do it too!

Pink Polka Dot Cake #DIY - www.cobornsblog.comIcing the Cake and Cupcakes

First off, I made two 9” round cakes and 24 cupcakes with two strawberry box cake mixes. After they cooled I began to ice the cakes. We love the buttercream icing from the Coborn’s Bakery, so I went over to the bakery and got the “Good Stuff”. They sell it in the cases by the cupcakes and they typically have white and a couple other random colors to choose from. I bought two and a half pounds, but I should have just bought three because I ran out before all 24 cupcakes were iced.  I put A LOT of icing on the cake. So you may be able to get away with only two pounds. I colored the icing myself at home to make the best color match, however if you wanted a certain color, I would think the nice people in the bakery would dye some for you. Long story short, I iced my two round cakes together to make a higher cake with an icing layer in the middle. I did that with just a butter knife. I then did a simple icing of the cupcakes with a pastry bag and round tip. Click here for more ways to ice a cupcake.

Decorating the cakes

Pink Polka Dot Cupcakes #DIY - www.cobornsblog.comThe next steps are really easy. I bought Over The Top Party Pink Sanding Sugar from the cake aisle along with Over The Top White Sugar Beads.  I simply sprinkled the top of the cake with the Sanding Sugar. Then I took the White Sugar Beads and created a polka dot pattern on the top of the cake to match the décor. I used the rest of the beads to make a border against the plate and the bottom of the cake and voila, the cake is now decorated. For the cupcakes, I sprinkled the Party Pink Sanding Sugar on half of the cupcakes and did one White Sugar Bead on the top of the other half of cupcakes, this way they all coordinated with the cake, but were a little different.

Making the Cake Topper

Now on to the cake topper. I had purchased polka dot pink straws from the party store when I purchased my tableware, but who really uses a straw? So I knew I would have leftovers to use for my cake. I took three straws to use for my cake topper. Next I took three pink paper plates to cut out circles for my saying. My Mom has a Cricut™ cutting machine that we used to cut out white vinyl letters to write out “Grace is three”.   I then placed the vinyl on the round circles. Next I simply hot glued the straws to the back of the circles. The last thing I had to do was to arrange the straws and stick them into the cake. I also placed a pink number three candle and my cake was complete.

Free Happy Birthday Printables #DIY - www.cobornsblog.comMaking the Cake Topper at home

I realize that you may not all have a Cricut™ cutting machine at home, so I made Free Printables for you so you can make these at home. Obviously I do not know the name of the person for whom you are making the cake, so the printables read “Happy 3rd Birthday”. Each printable has four sheets. Sheet one has the Happy, Birthday and 1st – 5th circles. Sheet two has 6th – 14th circles, sheet 3 has 15th – 21st circles and the fourth sheet has 30th – 100th, by decade. Click the links below for different colors. I made a pink version, green version, blue version and one white version with just black text so you can print on whatever color you wish. I would just suggest using a heavy/thick card stock so that the circle stand up nicely against the straws, if you do not have a heavy/thick card stock, you can just glue the circle a little farther down the straw to add a little stability.

 

This cake and these cupcakes are cute and fun for any birthday party. I hope you can use some of the ideas I gave you here to make your own!

How To Decorate with the Leaf Tip

How to decorate with the leaf tip - www.cobornsblog.com

Hello, again! Welcome back for another exciting adventure into the world of cake decorating. If not exciting, I hope you at least find it mildly interesting. This time around, we are going to be having fun with leaf tips!

How to decorate with the leaf tip - M and V tips - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip Basics

I’ll be using two shapes of leaf tip. One tip is shaped like a “V” at the end; one is shaped like an “M.” For today’s demonstrations I will be using pink frosting with the M-shaped leaf tip and blue with the V-shaped tip.

You may be familiar with the classic use of the leaf tip already. With a little squeeze and pull, you can make a perfect little bit foliage. With your V-shaped tip, you want to make sure you are holding it like a bird beak to get the leaf to come out right. With the other tip, you want to turn the tip 90 degrees and hold it so you can see the M shape from the top.

Both do the job well, as you can see, but I usually use the V-shaped tip because the pointy tips of the leaves turn out nicer, with less fuss.

How to decorate with the leaf tip - Making Ruffles - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip Ruffles

So, what is there beyond making leaves for these little tips? How about ruffles! We can do swag-style ruffles or thick frilly ruffles.  To make the classic swag shape, you just load up that leaf tip and draw some “C” shapes.  I tend to do swag ruffles with the M-shaped tip. It’s not a huge difference, but I think the edges are a little thinner and lighter looking. What’s that you ask, why not use a rose tip? Well, sure, you could, but when you use a leaf tip, you get a little frilly edge to both sides of your ruffle. Wow! Now with extra prettiness!

To do the wide ruffle band, you hold the tip like you would if you were going to make a leaf and then make small, side-to-side motions. Pretend you are scribbling with a crayon. The wider your side-to-side motions, the wider and frillier your ruffles with be.

How to decorate with the leaf tip - Making Cupcake Ruffles - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip Cupcake Ruffle

Now that we’ve talked about some ways to pipe, let’s talk about how to use these ideas for projects. To create a ruffle look on a cupcake, use your side-to-side squiggle to add a ruffled edge. Once you get all the way around, do it again, this time making a slightly smaller circle. Repeat the process once more to cover the top of your cupcake. Now you have a cupcake fit for a princess. Wouldn’t it look nice finished with a few candy pearls?

How to decorate with the leaf tip - Using the Leaf Tip VS. Rose Tip - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip VS. Rose Tip

But, why not use a rose tip? Well, yes, you could… check out that photo. It’s not a huge difference, but the rose tip has a more even, flower-petal appearance, whereas the leaf tip is more irregular and frilled.

How to decorate with the leaf tip - How to make Carnation Cupcake - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip Carnation Cupcake

Let’s do another cupcake project. If you turn you tip 90 degrees and use it sideways, you can create a whole new look. Just wave the tip back and forth, making lots of little folds. Try not to go in circles or in a straight line. Make small clusters here and there as you work your way across the cupcakes. The end result has a carnation look. Imagine a bouquet of these in lots of pretty colors!

How to decorate with the leaf tip - Making a flowe with the leaft tip - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip Flower

Speaking of carnations… let’s make a flower! Get out that flower nail for this one. Start with just making a base like you would when making a rose. Start in the middle. On top of your frosting base, make small concentric circle like you would when making a rose. Give your hand a tiny bit of shake to get the edges frilled. You can stop and start at any point. The frilliness with hide any parts where the ruffles aren’t connected. Keep working your way out in the same way as making a rose.

How to decorate with the leaf tip - Flowers and Border - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip Flowers and Border

I placed my flowers onto a cake that I had already piped leaf tip swag borders onto. This cake reminded me of an arts and crafts project, more specifically sewing. I finished it off with some “stitching” vines to give it that artsy look.

How to decorate with the leaf tip - Leaf Tip Feather Boa Border - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip Feather Boa Boarder

Well, let’s give the pink a rest, shall we? Let’s get out that V-shaped tip. I wanted to do something a little more wild this time. I have a cake I’ve prepared with a cheetah print in blue.  Girl’s night out, anyone? For this cake, a leaf tip will make a terrific feather boa border. Pick pretty much any color (I would avoid green, as it might look like a wreath) and start piping. Make lots of leaves going in lots of directions. You want them to go up, down, left, right. Think fluffy feathers! It might start out strange in the beginning but stick with it. Once you get all the way around, you’ll be rewarded. Try doing this with different shades of the same color to give it real pizzazz.

How to decorate with the leaf tip - Using the leaf tip for the entire cake - www.cobornsblog.com

Leaf Tip Ruffle Cake

For our last project let’s make one more cake.  Load up a bag with frosting and an M-shaped leaf tip. You’ll want to ice your cake first, in a color that matches your outside color for best results. Making these ruffles, it will be hard to completely hide what color is underneath. Using the technique for making those flat ruffles, start at the bottom of your cake and pipe a squiggly line up to the top. Make sure you go all the way up and past the top edge a bit. In the photo, I’ve made some ruffles with a tight wiggle pattern and some less wiggly. As you can see, the amount of shake you put into your piping really affects the look of your ruffle. Continue piping ruffles around the entire cake. Once you are all the way around, you can go back and knock all those points down toward the center if they aren’t already.  The next step is to finish the top with ruffles. It works in the same manner as the cupcake we did earlier. Simply pipe a circle of ruffles on the outside edge. Then repeat again and again in overlapping circles. And now you have a super ruffle cake! Add a flower or two, or a tiara! It’s so easy – just let the leaf tip do all the work.

I hope you have fun and find ways to expand on the ideas we talked about. And I hope that lonely little leaf tip makes it out of the tool kit more often. With a little imagination, it’ll be a MVP in no time.

Just BARE Crusted Parmesan Chicken

Crusted Parmesan Chicken Recipe - www.cobornsblog.com

www.cobornsblog.com - Family, Friends & Food with Jayne

Jayne

During the winter months I always set a goal to go through all my cupboards and closets in my home and get rid of everything I no longer want or need by the time spring arrives. I had each one of the kids stop home and take their junk that they have stored here for years and if they didn’t want it, I would make sure to donate it to our favorite charity. Well, spring has arrived and I accomplished my goal. I can’t believe how much storage space I have and the best part of going into summer, my house is clean and all the junk is gone.

Just Bare Chicken Attributes - www.cobornsblog.comNow that I have all this extra time, I had a few of my girlfriends over for dinner the other night right after work and I knew that wouldn’t give me much time to come up with something so I prepared a meal that is my husband’s absolute favorite and it is so quick and easy to make. I have served this many times for dinner parties and even for Easter Dinner instead of the traditional ham. I have had so many requests for this recipe and finally my girlfriends the other night told me to put it on my next blog, so here it is. All it takes is 30 minutes of your time. I also have to tell you a little bit about the chicken that I use in this recipe. I want to make sure that I am serving a good and healthy product to my family and friends, so I choose Just BARE Chicken because of the attributes listed in the graphic above.
