Eco Up Mommy

A little bit about Eco Up Mommy!

My name is Sarah and I live in IL with my husband and our 9 month old son. Growing up on a farm we always tried to make most things ourselves. My mom makes soap and my dad still makes his own wine. I grew up looking around me and creating useful item out of things no one else wanted. 
I have an addiction to creating things. I love new ideas and projects. Creating for me is adventure and you always learn something new. 

Our house has become a collection of things that seem to have found us more than we found them. Old rocking chairs, antique books, plates that belonged to my mother, bowls of dried flowers and vintage trunks pull the rooms together. It seems to give the house that feeling of home. I feel like my whole life is slowly becoming a large canvas. 


I found Eco Up Mommy on etsy a couple of months ago.  I loved their products and was able to do a review on a bag that was made out of a sweater that got shrunk in the dryer.  I love how Eco Up Mommy uses recycled products to make wonderful things.  I also love that by doing this you really get one of a kind products! The following pictures are a couple of things Eco Up Mommy Offers.  

Eco Up Mommy also offers great scarfs!

At Eco Up Mommy you will also find great vintage items.

Check out Eco Up Mommy for great gift ideas or to get some items for yourself.  You will not be disappointed!

Eco Up Mommy is giving one lucky winner a bag.  One person will win a I shrunk your sweater bag!

Roasted Vegetable Focaccia Sandwich

This sandwich is absolutely heavenly.  It is packed full of flavor.  The first time I made it my husband turned up his nose and said, "A sandwich without meat, I'm a man, I need meat".  But when he tried it he loved it!  Even manly men can eat this sandwich!

1 loaf of focaccia bread
1 small eggplant, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 small zucchini, sliced 1/4 inch thick 
1 small yellow squash, sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 plum tomatoes
fresh basil, julienned 
 fresh mozzarella cheese
2 TBS olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Put your sliced vegetables in a large bowl that has a lid.  Add the minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in the bowl.  Put the  lid on and shake softly.  This will distribute the oil around  to all of the vegetables.  Lay in a single layer on sheet pans and roast on 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until soft.

In the meantime.  Slice your tomatoes and mozzarella and set aside.  Slice your fococcia bread in half, horizontally.  Sprinkle lightly with olive oil and set aside.  When the vegetables are done, remove from oven to cool slightly.  Put the focaccia bread under the broiler until lightly toasted.

To assemble sandwich, lightly cover bread with mayonnaise.  Then layer on the vegetables. Followed by, the tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil. Serve and enjoy!

This side dish is one of my all time favorite dishes.  It is so easy and very delicious!

1/2 pound green beans
2 TBS olive oil
1 tsp Lawry's seasoning
1/2 tsp salt 
1/2 tsp pepper

In a large stock pot bring water to boil.  Add beans and blanch about 4-5 minutes or until tender.  Drain and put into ice water to stop the cooking process.  Take out of ice water and drain on kitchen towel.  Get as much water off the beans as possible.  In a large skillet heat your oil until smoking and add your drained and cooled beans.  Add seasonings and stir fry for about 4-5 minutes.
