Instructions
  1. Melt butter into a large sauté pan.

  2. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.

  3. Turn the heat on the pan up to high, add chicken and sear on one side until golden brown. Turn over and do the same to the other side. (approximately minutes per side) Turn the heat to medium, and sauté until cooked through. Remove from pan.

  4. In the same sauté pan, add white wine to deglaze. Continue cooking until the liquids have reduced to about half. Add heavy cream. Bring to a low boil. Turn down heat and add mustard and chopped parsley. Stir to combine.

  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour sauce over chicken or add chicken back to pan.


Recipe Notes

Saute: To cook quickly in a pan on top of the stove until the food is browned. It is often done in a small, shallow pan called a sauté pan.

Sear: To brown meat quickly over high heat. Meat may be seared under a broiler or in a skillet on top of the stove.

Deglaze: After foods are fried or cooked in a skillet or pan in the oven, the pan is deglazed. This means liquid is added to loosen and dissolve the brown bits and pan drippings at the bottom of the pan that form during cooking and basting. This pulls all the flavor possible out of the cooking process. Deglazing liquid is usually broth, a marinade, or wine.

3 DIY Ways to Make Your Face Look Brighter, Fresher, Younger

Green tea ice facial
Ice cube facials are some of the earliest spa treatments known to man. The cool cubes bring down swelling and tighten pores.
The addition of green tea gives your tired skin a little jolt of caffeine and a healthy dose of antioxidants, making your face look fresh and bright.

Skin and face refresher DIY by Katie Brown

Instructions
  1. Make a pot of very strong (in fact, too strong to drink) hot green tea, and let it cool slightly.

  2. Pour it into an ice cube tray, filling the tray all the way to the top.

  3. Sprinkle some fresh dried green tea on top of each compartment.

  4. Freeze the tray of green tea ice cubes.

  5. When frozen, pop a cube out, hold it with the soft cloth for a grip (and to collect drips) and caress your entire face with the cube until it is melted.


Recipe Notes

DIY face-lift facial
Want to temporarily tighten your face? Look no further than egg whites. Packed with protein, whipped egg whites will leave your skin baby-soft and taut. The addition of lemon juice and honey, a natural antiseptic, will create a mixture that also acts as an astringent, which is perfect for oilier skin.
Materials:
1 egg white
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Tools:
Whisk
Instructions:
1. Mix the honey and lemon juice together.
2. Add the egg white and whisk into soft, white peaks.
3. Starting at the top of your forehead and working your way across your face, apply the mask with your fingertips in an upward stroking motion.
4. Sit and relax while it dries, about 10-15 minutes.
5. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
DIY rose water
If it was good enough for Cleopatra, it’s good enough for us. Used every day by this beauty who was renowned for her flawless skin, rose water is a natural astringent and an antibacterial, and it’s packed full of vitamin C, which heals and smooths the skin.
Materials:
Large pot with domed lid
Heat-resistant glass or stainless-steel bowl (small enough to fit inside the pot)
Smaller bowl to set larger bowl on top of, or a brick.
Ice
Distilled water
2-3 quarts fresh rose petals
Instructions:
1. Place the smaller bowl upside down in the center of the pot. Alternatively, you could use a brick.
2. Place the petals inside the pot, all around the inverted bowl, and pour in enough distilled water to cover them.
3. Set the larger bowl on top of the inverted bowl, in the center of the pot, with the rim higher than the water by a few inches.
4. Cover the pot with the lid flipped upside down, and bring the rose petals to a boil. Once the water is boiling, fill the top of the lid (still flipped so it’s like a big bowl too) with ice cubes.
5. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 hours.
When the heat hits the cold lid, it causes condensation, which then drips into the collector bowl in the pot. The result is pure rose water.
6. Add more ice as needed. The yield should be between one pint and one quart of fragrant rose water.
6. Store the rose water in a glass bottle with a spray top or tight-fitting lid.
Hint: If you didn’t use red roses, you can add a drop of beet juice to give it a pink glow.

Keep it simple and learn how to cook, garden, and decorate your home with Katie Brown.

Instructions
  1. Create a circle with the rope to your desired size. Remember that the shape of the circle you create will be the size of your wreath.

  2. Create about 3 or 4 loose circles with the rope.

  3. After you have a few loose circles, take the extra rope and tie a knot around the layers of loose rope.

  4. Create a few more loose circles of rope.

  5. Take the extra rope and create another knot. Now all of your rope should be secured! If you have extra rope, repeat steps 4 and 5.

  6. To add structure to your wreath, take the copper wire and wrap it around the rope in a few different locations. To do this simply cut about 8 inches of copper wire, wrap it around the rope, twist the copper together and cut the extra wire with wire clippers.

  7. Now it is time to create a bouquet to add some festive spice to the rope!

  8. Pair a few feathers with fake flowers of your choice. Remember to consider height and color—incorporating different feather heights and adding a small pop of color will really brighten your wreath!

  9. Once you have your bouquet arranged, use copper wire to secure the bouquet.

  10. Simply put the bouquet through one of the knots you have tied and voila, you have a very unique fall wreath!
