A few weeks ago I took my children to a local strawberry farm. And it’s possible that I spent close to $20 on strawberries. Or not. Or maybe so. It was worth every penny and I even think we saved some pennies as they ate a few strawberries as they picked. Just a few (or […]
you know what’s good about making your own ice cream? everything, that’s what. it’s usually cheaper, tastier, and prettier. and for goodness’ sakes, you can actually SEE what is in the thing that you’re about to ingest. or better yet, what your children are about to ingest. if you are what you eat, then lately […]
i’ve been trying to come up with a protein bar that my whole family will eat. mainly one that won’t fall apart and that doesn’t require some sort of syrup to hold it together. i like the Kind bars, but they have more sugar than i prefer. nothing i’ve used as a binder has held […]
this time of year is so nostalgic for me. growing up, my parents fed us so well. i remember being sick of eating steak and vegetables. ha! before dinner, if we were hungry, my mom would say, “you can eat your salad first if you’re hungry.” because most of our meals were coupled with a […]

it may look like dirt. but i promise, it’s clean. i can’t remember how i stumbled upon this recipe idea, but am i ever glad that i did. i wasn’t a big milk and cereal eater, pre-gluten/grain-free days, but i do like cereal. and sometimes i just need an easy go-to for breakfast. this is a […]
if you’ve ever made babyfood for your babes, this will remind you a LOT of that. this is such an easy soup. and it can become a delicious base as you add your own toppings, or leave it bare. i try to grab the biggest butternut squash i can find. for that reason, this recipe […]
