So I’ve been buying these at the premium grocery store near my work, for about $2 a piece (yikes, major markup!). They are yummy, crunchy nori (seaweed) slices, sprinkled generously with sea salt. I’ve been meaning to buy them from Amazon, but decided to try making them at home tonight.

Wow, are they easy!

Sea Salt Nori Snack:

  1. Take a piece of nori, and lay it flat.
  2. Using a pastry brush or your finger, lightly coat the nori with toasted sesame oil.
  3. Sprinkle finely crushed sea salt on top of the oiled nori.
  4. Cut into bite-sized squares.


Obviously, if you don’t like nori, these aren’t exactly for you. But, if you love it, and have some laying around from sushi making, try this out! You wont regret it:)


Homemade Cleaning Recipes

I’ve been trying to eliminate harsh chemicals from my cleaning routine. I’m very sensitive to them, and sick of the migraines they cause. Also, I’d love to eliminate the extra plastic that they add to the landfill!

Here are some recipes I’d like to try, that I already have all the ingredients for:

Vanilla & Cloves Air Freshener Spray : I plan on using this + some lemon peels + drop of dish soap to be my all-purpose cleaner. My current one (based on many recommendations) is 1 part water, 1 part vinegar, 1 drop of dish soap, but the plain vinegar smell is getting old.

Salt Packed Citrus Shells: DIY Air Freshener : I bought kosher salt in bulk for some bath recipes, so I’ve got loads to spare…

Make liquid soap from a bar of soap : I’m sick of paying $6-10 for a small bottle of moisturizing shower gel, and creating all that packaging. I weirdly collect soaps from the nicer hotels we visit. I plan on melting those first, and adding honey, olive oil and brewed green tea/peppermint tea. I will re-use the container that my current shower gel is in.
