tea cupToday, I noticed a tea ring stain on my natural wood coffee table -reddish in color.  I gather  it’s been there for about a week. After doing a bit of research online, I mixed 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 tsp. ammonia in a cup.  I poured a little of the mix on the stain and blotted it. I did this on and off for about an hour. The stain is still faintly visible, but the table is distressed, so I am okay with it as it is.  If I worked a little longer,  it would have most likely faded completely.  Give this a try for coffee or tea stains. I think you will be pleased.

Coconut Chocolate Squares Here’s another of my favorite Gluten Free treat  recipes.  These are so simple to make;  taste great; and are full of healthy fats.  I usually have a few in my freezer. When I feel like something sweet,  I’ll have just a small piece – that’s all I need.

Coconut Chocolate Squares.


  • 2 cups shredded coconut- unsweetened
  • 2/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup dark GF chocolate wafers or chips


  1. In medium bowl, mix shredded coconut,  melted coconut oil, vanilla, and almond butter until well mixed.
  2. Line a 8 ” square pan with tin foil.
  3. Using hands or a spatula, press the mixture into the foil lined pan.
  4. Melt the chocolate in a double broiler.
  5. With a spatula, spread the melted chocolate evenly over the coconut mixture.
  6. Refrigerator or freeze.  Cut in small squares.

Variation – use peanut butter instead of Almond butter.
