Universal Healing Tao Center Complete Guide Urine Therapy Complete Guide Urine Therapy (Coen Van Der Kroon) Urine consists of 95% of water, 2.5% of urea and the remaining 2.5% is a mixture of minerals, salts, hormones and enzymes. Only urea , the substance after which urine is named, can be poisonous when present in the blood. However, this is irrelevant in the practice of drinking urine, as urine is not immediately put back in the bloodstream. In small amounts urea gets back into the body, it is purifying, and clears up excess mucus. One of the liver's most important functions is detoxification of the blood. The kidney's most important function consists of balancing out all elements in the blood. Human urine has strengthening and curative characteristics concerning many deficiencies. Drinking urine is a good alternative wherever water is scarce. Urine therapy consists of two parts: internal appication (drinking urine) and external application (massaging with urine). Another method, which I myself used, is to begin by fasting for a few days.

Giant Reeses Peanut Butter Cup I found Pimp That Snack last year and spent some time enjoying the pimps. Being inspired myself, I made a giant Reese's Peanut butter cup as a dessert for Thanksgiving 2006. I failed to document it, so this year I planned to repeat the process, with pictures. Looking at the other Reese's pimps, I found that most of them just used regular peanut butter when in fact the inside of a true cup was not peanut butter of the make-a-sandwich variety. I did some research on the net and found several good candidates for recipes, mostly from Buckeyes (chocolate dipped peanut butter balls). After a couple of experiments, which my friends enjoyed critiquing ("too runny," "pretty good," "does the burning stop?") Ingredients: Aluminum casserole pan $1.49 or use whatever seems right for you (it had the right shape). Total if you bought all items new: $19.91 Total for ingredients used: $ 9.33 You start by preparing the pan for the chocolate. The next night, I started with the bottom layer. Rate this pimp!

hugelkultur: the ultimate raised garden beds raised garden bed hugelkultur after one month raised garden bed hugelkultur after one year raised garden bed hugelkultur after two years raised garden bed hugelkultur after twenty years It's a german word and some people can say it all german-ish. I'm an american doofus, so I say "hoogle culture". I learned this high-falootin word at my permaculture training. Hugelkultur is nothing more than making raised garden beds filled with rotten wood. I do think there are some considerations to keep in mind. Another thing to keep in mind is that wood is high in carbon and will consume nitrogen to do the compost thing. Pine and fir will have some levels of tanins in them, but I'm guessing that most of that will be gone when the wood has been dead for a few years. In the drawings at right, the artist is trying to show that while the wood decomposes and shrinks, the leaves, duff and accumulating organic matter from above will take it's place.

Oreo Cookies-Recipe Oreo-Oreo Recipes-Cheese Cupcakes-Oreo Cheesecakes Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Wednesday, 21st July 2010 I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like Oreo cookies or Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes. Who could resist cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies? Not Me! Especially the double-stuffed Oreo cookie, it’s one of the best cookies for dunking into a cold glass of milk. I went out yesterday to do my weekly shop, came home, and before I was able to bring in the first grocery bag Matt was hunting for the cookies and cream ice cream. One of Matt’s favourite desserts of all time is cherry cheesecake and I thought to myself why not Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes, that should satisfy his craving. Plus these cheesecakes are super easy to prepare, everything comes together in one bowl and there’s no crushing chocolate wafers with a rolling pin, then melting butter, baking the crust first and then baking a second time when filled. Drop an Oreo cookie into each muffin tin, make filling, add chopped cookies, bake, and enjoy, how easy is that?

Tiramisu Bread Pudding Guest Post from Teanna of Spork or Foon? Bread Pudding ranks up there with rice pudding for me. And when I say "ranks up there", I mean, "YUCK". I have a thing with soggy carbs. They just shouldn't exist. As I was growing up, my father used to pour a bowl of Fiber One cereal and let it soak on the counter for a half an hour before eating it every morning. I would walk through the kitchen and gag. Those were horrible, horrible memories. I wanted to find a way to enjoy bread pudding, so I prepared Dorie Greenspan's chocolate bread pudding and added a bit of a twist - I decided to make it into tiramisu bread pudding.After cooking and cooling the bread pudding, I had a taste. Was it possible that bread pudding isn't bad? Another bite. Could it be? The bread was custard-y and moist, yet not soggy. As one recipe that I used for inspiration for tiramisu cream boldly claimed: "This is heaven in your mouth." Bread Pudding(adapted from Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home To Yours) Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes. (Image: Teanna DiMicco)
