Branch Basics: All-Purpose Green Cleaner (that works!)

Branch Basics.001

You all know how much I love my DIY vinegar based all-purpose cleaner. I have been making it for close to 5 years and it's all we use to clean at our house. It works well and gets the job done. But, my husband is ALWAYS complaining about the scent. Some people can actually be sensitive to vinegar, especially those with asthma or bronchitis.

These Paleo Pumpkin Muffins are so easy to make that even a toddler can do it! ;) ... Indyanna and I have been having so much fun making these muffins together lately. She is able to do almost all of the steps by herself, except add the "pinch" of salt. I made the mistake of letting her do that step the first time around and let's just say there weren't any muffins to enjoy that day. These Paleo Pumpkin Muffins burst with Fall flavors.
