Vegan St. Patrick's Day - Mayernik Kitchen Style

By Shannon, Posted in Food Profile

I love this time of year.  I really do.  The weather is getting warmer, but not hot enough to be suffocating.  We are getting more hours of daylight.  And, best of all, we have a series of unsung hero spring holidays.  With the larger family holidays like Passover, Easter, and Memorial Day quickly approaching, it’s easy for us to forget about some smaller celebrations like St. Patrick’s Day, but please don’t.  This warming day, filled with tons of old-fashione... read more.

Garden Series 003 - NJ - Mayernik Garden

By Matt, Posted in Garden

Seed Planting  in March? In New Jersey? Not always easy! The center of the Mayernik Garden is an enclosed area surrounded by a five foot fence to keep the deer out, as well as any other little critters! We have been less successful keeping out the rabbits that have provided us three litters the past two seasons. But let me tell you, they are the cutest things ever! And if we do displace them, it is within a few feet from where mama gave birth so she knows where to find them when she comes to feed them... read more.

Homemade Organic Boo-Boo Cream - Mayernik Kitchen

By Shannon, Posted in MK Product

One of our favorite members of the new March Out of the Woods Apothecary Box is our own Organic Boo Boo Cream.  Though most people reach for their tube of Neosporin when the roughest of ouchies hits, our cream is worlds better for one main reason: it is made from all organic ingredients.  One of my biggest worries is not knowing what I’m putting in and on my body, and this extends much further than the food we eat.  I have become more conscious about my foods and drinks, sure, but I hav... read more.

Top 5 Winter Activities - Mayernik Kitchen Style

By Shannon, Posted in Wellness

Have you ever found yourself feeling down and out during the winter time?  It makes sense: the weather is colder, there are less hours of daylight, less sunshine, and people just seem moodier.  Don’t fret, though, because there are many activities you can still do in order to avoid the seasonal depression that winter brings along with it.  Most people find themselves staying indoors more often in the winter because of the cold and dreary weather, but there is still so much that the grea... read more.

Review of Healthy Living Guild - Snacks - Mayernik Kitchen

By Shannon, Posted in Food Review

If you need some quick snack ideas, the Healthy Living Guild | Snacks will be perfect for you. I had the privilege of reviewing the guild before the re-launch of Emily Beatty's new website.

Organic Warming Massage Oil - Mayernik Kitchen

By Shannon, Posted in MK Product

Another awesome inclusion in February’s Out of the Woods Apothecary Box is our Organic Warming Massage Oil.  Yes, it sounds sensual, and it sure can be, but it’s so much more.  When the weather has us feeling run down, and our muscles are super tight and sore – either from too much shoveling or just the cold, stiff weather – a little warming oil can be just the trick to help you feel better.  Not only can the combination of oils used soothe your body and soul in differ... read more.

Top 5 Herbs for a Sexy Valentine’s Day - Mayernik Kitchen

By Matt, Posted in Herbal Remedies

Once the holiday season passes, the colder, darker days of winter tend to be all-consuming. We often get stuck in a work-a-holic rut where we go into work (and it’s still dark outside) only to come home from work (while it’s dark outside).  Don’t let this darkness dampen your moods.  Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and just because the light outside is dim, doesn’t mean your relationship should be.  If you’re looking to liven up your romance &ndash... read more.
