Ivory® 2-IN-1 Hair & Body Wash

Look what I got in the mail recently! Another Influenster Vox Box! This one came from Ivory. It's a 2-in-1 hair and body wash, that also has conditioner in it. It smells wonderful! It has a light, clean smell, and not too perfumy.
I've tried it, and I love it! I'm going to get my husband and daughter to try it as well. They like the smell of it. :)

It works great! It left me feeling clean and smelling good.

I believe we will start just getting one of these 24 oz. bottles (like the one pictured) instead of spending about $10 or more on each of our own individual types of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. That's a lot of savings. From what I've seen online, this 24 oz. bottle costs anywhere from just a little over $4.00 to almost $5.00. But considering that my husband usually gets his own brand of body wash that alone costs almost $4.00, then another $1- $2.00 on his shampoo, that's not including what I spend on my body wash and shampoo plus conditioner. Between just my husband and I, we spend almost $20 between the two of us just on shampoo, conditioner and body wash. And sometimes our daughter shares ours, sometimes she has her own of each. But just buying this one bottle for all three of us, saves us about $15.00! :)
Influenster also included 3 coupons for 75 cents off of ONE Ivory 2-In-1 Body Wash (excludes trial/travel size). :)

There's another great benefit to this product as well! Having only this one bottle that combines all your usual bath products (shampoo, conditioner and body wash), you're also helping the environment. In my home alone, we usually have about 9 bottles of bath products (shampoo, conditioner and body wash). Reducing ourselves to just this one bottle, will keep more bottles from ending up in a landfill. Thus, helping the Earth and reducing our carbon footprint! It's a win-win! It saves you money and space in your bathroom, while helping our planet! :)

Testing this new widget

Okay, so I've been looking for a way to try to make it where when I post something here, it also shows up on The Hearth of Cooking Facebook Page (and vice versa).
Well, I "think" I may have found what I've been looking for.
This is just a test post to see if it works or not. If this post shows up on the FB page, I'll know it worked like I'd hoped it would. If not, well, back to the proverbial drawing board. lol

We shall see! :D

 Well, I tested it... And it works!! YAY ME!! lol Now, I can update my blog AND my Facebook page at the same time! :D

Hello Everyone!

Well, I've thought and talked about doing this for a long time, and I finally decided to do it. I finally decided to start a blog about one of the things I love- FOOD! I mean, who doesn't love food? It's awesome!
I'm proof that the saying, "Never trust a skinny cook", isn't always true. 
I consider myself a very good cook (and my family and some friends will attest to that). :) I've entertained the thought at times of opening my own diner or restaurant, but that is a bigger undertaking than I'd care to have. But my kitchen has been lovingly nicknamed "Underwood Café". :)
I've been cooking for the better part of at least 20-something years. So I've learned a lot, and have picked up some tips and tricks along the way. I may even share some here.

I will be sharing some recipes that I've created myself, some that have been shared with me, and some that I've found. The other things I will be posting on here is product reviews, and whatever else comes to mind.

So, go ahead and hit "ctrl+d" on your keyboard (that will bring up the option to bookmark this page), and be sure to check back here often for new posts. :)

Now, on with the show! :)
