Thank you!! Thanksgiving is upon us, and I would like to take some time to THANK YOU. Thank you for reading. Thank you for caring, sharing, and for exploring new ideas, new recipes, and new ways to nourish yourself, the earth, and the ones you love. This has been one hell of a year so far, [...]

crispy skin broiled wild salmon

This recipe has been a LONG time in the making. If you've been following along for long, you've seen countless salmon posts on Instagram. I go through weeks (especially during my second trimester), where I eat salmon every single day, and the crispier the skin, the happier this mama. The reality of my salmon escapades, [...]

paleo pineapple pulled pork

Cravings. Let's talk about them. ALL I WANT IS PORK (and salmon, always salmon). A couple weeks ago, my husband and I were in San Jose and stopped into the new Whole Foods. They had a whole glorious "paleo bar" and right smack in the middle was the most delicious smelling pork ever. Falling apart. [...]

So, the word is out. I am pregnant. And we are THRILLED! Read more on how cool this is here. I have to admit, though, that the first 4 months of this pregnancy were some of the toughest of my life. I was very sick... All. The. Time. The fact that morning sickness starts with [...]

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 [...]

Taco (salad) Tuesday!

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 | 2016-05-19T13:05:13+00:00 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

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 [...]

for the love of lasagna

By | 2016-02-26T15:53:24+00:00 February 26th, 2016|Health, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

This recipe has a significant amount of sentimental value to me. It's made up of 1 part inspirational blogger/farmer/lifestyle role model and 1 part best friend/kick ass/new mama role model. The final product is as odd a matchup as the inspiration behind it, but I can tell you this much: each of these ladies plays [...]
