Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #27

Got a great gluten free recipe, some frugal tips or a healthy living article? Well come join the party!

The Waste Not Want Not Wednesday link-up party is inspired by World Food Day (Oct. 16), and recent articles such as this one that show between 40-51% of food in Canada and America ends up in the garbage.  Over-consumption, lack of knowledge, low cost and over purchasing are common causes of food waste in North America.  This unsustainable over-consumption extends to so many aspects of our lives.

So perhaps if we all share our tips for consuming a little less stuff in general, cooking more responsibly and frugally, and living eco-friendly, we can each take a small part in making our world a little more sustainable.

And besides, who couldn't save a little bit of $$$ anyway?

Because it continues to be cold and miserable in Wisconsin, I've decided this week to share my top warm weather picks from last week in the hopes that it will bring on the warmth and sunshine!

This week I'm sharing a tutorial for making Limoncello, the sweet lemon vodka served as a digestif in Italy.  

I also want to invite you to share your blogs on my brand new as of this afternoon OAS & GF Bloggers page!  I hope it will be a resource for people to find others with like-minded interests.

  Now it's your turn to share something!  


  1. I love Limoncello!
    My grandmother, in good Italian fashion, used to serve it after dinner. Can't wait to make the recipe myself. :)

    This week I'm sharing a simple, yummy recipe for Strawberry Rosemary Sun-Tea. It's great for a relaxing cup.

  2. Thanks for hosting again this week...have a great day!

  3. Hi Danielle! I think that everyone is hoping for warmer weather.
    This week I'm sharing Cinnamon Sweet Potato Icing as well as Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken.
    Hopefully you have a great and warmer week :)

  4. Thanks for hosting again! I posted a recipe for Beef Heart in Chimichurri Sauce, with the goal of showing that organ meat can be as delicious as it is nutritious. I also posted an essay I wrote this week about the power of language in the healing process. Wishing you a beautiful week!

  5. Thanks for highlighting my smoothie Danielle!

  6. Thanks for hosting, Danielle! This week I shared "clean-out-the-fridge" main dish salad.

  7. Thank you so much for featuring my homemade ice cream recipe! Have a lovely week!

  8. Thank you for hosting!

    This week I shared a guide on how to eat seasonally, plus two HUGE reasons why we should. To make it even easier, I also shared a post with a seasonal list, the clean & dirty lists PLUS what fruits & veggies pack the most punch for our buck – all miniaturized so we have an easy-reference card at our fingertips!


I'd love to hear from you so go ahead, leave a comment!
