dad’s wedge fries (you’ll never make them any other way again)

By | August 29th, 2016|Health, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

Thank you, dad. Thanks for raising me to love and believe in myself. Thank you for picking on me just enough to give me thick skin, but for loving me so much that I know my worth. Thank you for having different political opinions and for giving me a strong opponent in friendly, eye-opening debates. Thanks for [...]

choco banana paleo protein cake

Hi friends. For those of you who have been following along for a while, you probably saw my recent post about why I love using Rootz Nutrition supplements for my training and for life. As a very selective supplement user, who believes in getting nutrition primarily from real food sources, I don't take this subject [...]

lemony garlic grilled chicken breast

Summer is in full swing (I cannot believe we are in August. When did that happen?), and somehow I magically learned how to grill. It's always been something I just left to Rusty (no, not because he's a guy, but just because I had never done it and he had), but I got the urge [...]

Almost 3 years ago now, Rusty and I honeymooned in Kauai (see pre manbun Rusty?). It was an amazing trip filled with hiking, kayaking, adventuring, and of course, eating. When we travel, we always make a point of trying to experience the place as locals would. We avoid resorts at all costs, stay away from [...]

moonlight carnitas

By | May 19th, 2016|Pastured Meat, Recipes|

So, some of you might recall from a recent Instagram/Facebook post, I made some incredibly drool worthy carnitas a couple weeks ago. I would like to first apologize for taking so long to get them to to you, but hey, life's been NUTS and these are worth the wait. One of the coolest (among many) things about [...]

garlic balsamic aioli burgers

By | May 6th, 2016|Health, Marinades and Sauces, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and I am craving burgers. But first, a bit of somewhat sad news: Rusty and I have decided to take a little break from dairy - not because I think dairy is inherently bad (in fact, good quality, especially raw, dairy is incredibly nutrient dense) - [...]

super simplest post roast

Have I mentioned that I love my Instant Pot? Of course I have, but in case you missed it: I love my Instant Pot. This thing has made life so much easier, and because we are in the midsts of big change, busy schedules, and a remodel... well easy is pretty necessary. This recipe time [...]

I think there's time for one last soup for the season.... And this one is my favorite yet, It's so good I couldn't wait until winter rolled around again to share it with you guys. Nor could I wait till winter to make it in our own house two weeks in a row.Something about the [...]
