The merging of me

Hello and Happy New Year to my few but important followers!!! Thank you for reading these little musings on herbs.

This post is to tell you I wont be writing from here any more! I'm merging my Herb side with my Craft side; after all, both sides are me, and both sets of business has come into being because of who I am and who Christ has made me.

So, in an effort to simplify  I am combining my Herby blog with my Crafty blog, my Herby Facebook page with my Crafty Facebook page and even my Herby skin care Etsy Shop with my Crafty Etsy Shop! Please head over to and 'follow' my meanderings from there. Not only will I post about herbs but also my craftyness and my faith and my camera and my amazing blessings.

Where I will be:!/pages/Simply-Natural-Designs/151116318278539

Thanks for everything!

Chicken Gyros - WOW - Annie's Eats Recipe

This week my Mom and I tried the recipe for Chicken Gyros from Annie's Eats. They were AWESOME! Really, if you are craving gyros and live 2 hours away from the nearest place to find a decent one [like me!] this is a great fix! The tzatziki sauce is the key to this amazing sandwich in a pita pocket. I didn't even get to take a picture of it the night we first had it for dinner; cause we scarfed them down way to fast!
This pic is from my lunch today cause I had the left overs. I wasn't crazy about having carrots with it, but cucumbers, obviously, were fantastic. Trust me, there really is chicken in there! I just love that tzatziki sauce so much that I smothered it.

We bought strained Greek yogurt so that we didn't have to strain it ourselves; just to save time. But we did 'wring' out the cucmber; we put the shreaded pulp in a metal strainer and pressed it into the mesh with a paper towl that we had to wring out often til it was no longer dripping.
Head over to Annie's Eats and grab the recipe and try it out for yourself; you won't be disappointed!
Have a great weekend!!

So sorry to all who participated in the contest for my delay in announcing a winner. The polls closed yesterday, July 4th, with three votes: all for Cleavers/Bedstraw and all of you were correct!! {give yourself a pat on the back}
Butter Pecan Biker Balm - Three Tubes - Lip Balm - by Simply Natural

Now, only two of those three contacted me with their Name/Email/Vote so my plan was to put those two names in a hat to pick the winner of the lip balm.... BUT. I've decided to let them both chose a lip balm as a thank you for participating in my first online give-away!!!

Make your selection out of the options below and send your address to my email so I can send your FREE lip balm straight to your door!!
