Shrimp and Pork Basil Roll Recipe

shrimp and pork basil roll recipe

A couple months ago, my mom came into town and made one of my favorite foods: basil rolls!! I posted some pictures into our Facebook Group and some of the members asked for the recipe and a couple of my friends also wanted to learn how to make it. So I had a small party with a few friends and we made some basil rolls.  My friend Nicole (from At Nicole’s Kitchen) helped with prepping the ingredients since she loves to cook.

Four Thieves Vinegar – Natural Insect Repellant

four thieves vinegar

With summer time approaching, mosquitos and bugs will be all around. I’m the type of person that will be outside with 10 other people and I’ll be the only one with tons of mosquito bites.  I love summer…I hate bugs.

I stumbled upon a natural bug spray last year that works really well…so I wanted to share with you in case you want to test it out this summer. It’s called the Four Thieves Vinegar and it’s actually more than just a bug spray (I’ll get into the additional benefits at the end). And this natural insect repellent is super easy to make!

But first, a little bit of history about the Four Thieves Vinegar. There are several different variations about how the Four Thieves Vinegar came about but all are set around the time of the Bubonic plague. One version of the story is that a group of thieves were robbing the homes and corpses of the dead during the European outbreak and they were able to survive without catching the disease. They were eventually caught and in exchange for leniency, they had to exchange their secret recipe. Another version is that the thieves had been caught before the outbreak of the plague and when they were sentenced to bury the dead, they create the vinegar mix infused with garlic in order to survive.

The Four Thieves Vinegar is a combination of herbs mixed with apple cider vinegar. Different recipes call for different herbs, but I kept mine pretty simple and used a recipe from Wellness Mama.

Here are the things that you will need:
