Some of my favorite things during the Spring time in the South are: walking barefoot outside, the choir of bugs at night, rainy afternoons, fresh produce and eating outside. When I told you about Humble Roots farm in my last post with that beautiful Kohlrabi, I wanted so badly to go ahead and share this Bok Choy with you.

Last week I visited one of our local farmer’s markets. It’s located on the grounds of an old plantation that’s been turned into a sight-seeing and locale for many events.

these muffins are probably the best banana bread/muffins i’ve eaten. hands down. gluten or gluten-free diet, these are my favorites. Read more
these cookies are little bites of ginger goodness. they’re a satisfying sweet treat, minus processed sugars that give you that awful rise and fall in blood sugar. and the bonus is that they’re filled with good protein. Read more
i’ve wanted something to dip my veggies in for quite a while. i happened to have tahini in my fridge from a previous dip recipe i’d tried and not fully enjoyed. but tahini doesn’t do me any good just sitting on the shelf of my refrigerator staring at me. Read more
