Us working people know all about the crock pot. The easiest way to come home to a house that smells good,and not have to stress about dinner, just scoop out the food, toss a salad and voila, dinner is served!
I mainly throw in a pot roast, chicken, or sausage before I head off for the day. But that is getting a little boring, although still delicious. So today I went looking for something a little different, and I think I will try this out over the weekend, so that I have time to make something else if I don’t like how it turns out.Ingredients 2 10- to 12-ounce packages frozen winter squash puree,thawed 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 32-ounce container ricotta 1 5-ounce package baby spinach (6 cups) kosher salt and black pepper 12 lasagna noodles (about 3/4 of a 16-ounce box) 8 ounces mozzarella, grated (about 2 cups) green salad, for serving Directions In a medium bowl, mix the squash and nutmeg. In a second bowl, combine the ricotta, spinach, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. In the bottom of a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, spread ½ cup of the squash mixture. Top with 3 of the lasagna noodles (breaking to fit), half the remaining squash mixture, 3 lasagna noodles, and half the ricotta mixture; repeat, ending with the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with the mozzarella. Cook on low, covered, until the noodles are tender, 3 to 4 hours. Serve with the green salad, if desired.

Comments Off on Healthy Thanksgiving Appetizers !
On Thanksgiving, we eat too much, and we eat things we normally wouldn’t. So this year, here at Bonne-Foi, we went out to look for an appetizer that would be tasty, but not too fattening and also satisfying. I must confess, you can follow this recipe, or you can take a short cut and purchase a pre-made Olive Tapenade..
Combine all ingredients in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until olives are finely chopped.Note: Domenica Marchetti/Krista,

Comments Off on Fall Skin Care Tips
Summer time is over, despite the heat wave we have experienced here in Orange County, you can still smell a whiff of autumn in the air first thing in the morning. Just because the weather will eventually become cooler and crisper don’t stop using your sunscreen. And remember that the cooler air will also be drier, and that means keeping your skin hydrated is even more important than it was during the summer.
Drink plenty of water, and please, only use soap on your body, never on your face. Soap is very drying and can cause damage to the delicate skin on your face. Bonne Foi has a great Facial Cleanser that will clean your face, but is very gentle on your skin. And using our Night Time products to gently exfoliate while you sleep will help your skin stay soft and smooth.
Once every couple of weeks, mix up a concoction of either coconut oil and granulated sugar, or olive oil and sugar and give your body a soothing scrub down. This will help to exfoliate your skin, while leaving a thin film of oil that will keep you feeling silky all over.
For the cooler weather, it I also good to switch to a heavier, creamier skin moisturizer to protect your skin from the dryin effects of winter wind and cold. The thicker, more oily cream creates a barrier that will keep water in, and the cold dry air away from your skin. And don’t forget your lip balm, or gloss. Nothing makes you look less healthy and vibrant than dry, cracked lips.
Use all of our luxurious Bonne Foi skin care products to keep your face and neck looking fresh, dewey and healthy, and don’t forget to eat plenty of fruits, veggies and fish!!!

Comments Off on Are Vitamins Good for Your Skin?
Vitamins are a source of some controversy right now. For years the big manufacturers of of vitamins and supplements and even the medical profession have been touting the benefits of vitamins and minerals. At Bonne Foi, although we don’t dispute the importance of vitamins and minerals, we know that those vitamins and minerals benefit you more when they come from fresh, pesticide free fruits and vegetables.
Apples and broccoli will do more for your skin than a tablet from a bottle. The fish oil in a piece of fresh salmon will do plenty to keep your mind sharp and your skin soft and clear of wrinkles. Green Tea and is another source of anti-oxidants that will help not only with skin and hair, but also with weight loss. Grape seeds extract, coconut oil and coconut water all have great benefits for your skin and health. One of the very best ways to keep your skin looking beautiful and smooth is Olive Oil. Instead of butter, use olive oil for cooking, on your bread, and you can even spread a light layer of it on your feet and legs at night to keep your skin soft and smooth.
At Bonne Foi, Olive oil is one of the ingredients in our skin care line. No matter what the various studies say, it is always best to do things in moderation. Never take more than the recommended dosages for any vitamin or nutritional supplement. Too much of a good thing is never a good thing. You can cause illness and liver failure when taking too much of any supplement. Our advice is get your nutrients from good food.
Take care and eat well…
