This has been the week of frozen treats in this house. Summer really started for us on July 1, and we’re hitting it full force! We were doing a major house purge/cleanout/finally give Rye a room, and so our weekends were quite full. Because it feels like it got off to a bit of a late start, we had a true staycation over the 4th. And it was just what we needed.

In the past, a “staycation” for us has just meant being at home, not...

A smoothie recipe! What should have been one of the first recipes for me to post here, has taken me a year and a half. Why? Because I never measure anything...so it’s pretty hard to share a recipe for something with no measurements. BUT I made myself measure, and then I played around with it to get the perfect combination of ingredients. You're welcome! ;)

As a Mom of a busy, and sometimes particular toddler, I have a new appre...

This sounds like a dramatic title for a recipe, especially one for egg salad….I get it. But honestly, egg salad has saved me! When Finn was a newborn I had a hard time prioritizing feeding myself. When I had a free moment I didn’t know what to do, and usually eating wasn’t top on my list. This was for two reasons - I was avoiding SO many foods due to digestive issues for him, and I had nothing that was easy to grab and eat wit...

When I set out to create a blog, my vision was a post on how make bone broth as a cornerstone of the website. Well, here I am over a year after my first post and I’m finally getting to it. (It feels good that this is my first real post since having my daughter 6 weeks ago). What’s been holding me back? Bone broth is actually really easy to make, but there are so many variables. However, the biggest reason for not posting a rec...

I totally go in and out of the habit of planning our menu for the week. When I do it - I do it! Breakfast lunch and dinner - written out on some pretty paper, and I make it happen. But most of the time, I don’t make menu planning a priority and I’m kinda stuck every afternoon wondering what the heck we’re gonna have for dinner. Because we buy meat in bulk - ie, meat shares (½ cow, ¼ pig, 10 pastured chickens at once) we always...

We have this pot, we call it the love pot, and everything we make in it tastes so, so good. We swear it’s the pot - we’ve been cooking in it since we met (almost 10 years!) and it seems to just be infused with the hundreds of soups and stews we made in it.


However, when I went to make this soup - I realized we didn't have our love pot!! We had brought soup in it on a recent trip up to Maine, and we left it there. Gasp! BUT - I...

I got you with this title, didn’t I?? She’s posting about apple donuts, I better check this blog out!! Ha, well sorry….they’re not REAL apple donuts. But they’re pretty darn good. Horizontally sliced apple with yummy toppings. Or, you could make them into apple sandwiches, and really go to town!

I’m a big snacker, I always have been. I’m not sure if it’s because I grew up eating and loving snacks, or if it’s just what my metabo...

The last couple days have been cool at home, and I’m totally tempted to just jump into everything Fall. I really want to post soup and bone broth recipes, but I'm not letting myself until September! I want almond flour pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie spice in all of my drinks, sweaters, slippers and all of the soups. But NO! I’m stopping myself. We still have almost two full weeks of Summer left...longer if you go by the official...

I was at a 4th of July party yesterday and I brought my dip, obviously. A woman at the party said, "you know it's really too bad, the people who don't think they like goat cheese. Because they really do like it, everyone likes it, they just think they don't." She's totally right. If you don't think you like goat cheese, try this!!

This dip is super simple, and REALLY yummy. I’m hoping it makes me famous one day, it’s that good!...

While my diet is not gluten-free today, I strictly avoided gluten containing grains for over 3 years. I had stubborn digestive issues, and skin issues for years - removing gluten from my diet really helped. I noticed an improvement in my digestion, my energy and my skin. In an effort to heal my digestive system, I not only removed those grains, but I also had homemade bone broth and homemade sauerkraut about 5 times a week. By...
