A good friend of ours is also a commercial fisherman, and he is very good at what he does. He's also an awesome human and member at our CrossFit gym. He surprised Rusty and me this past week with a shoebox filled with fresh-caught Dungeness crab. Have I mentioned one of my love languages is food? Anyways, [...]

I've been getting some requests for quick and simple healthy weeknight meals. This is one of my favorites. It's super quick and easy to make, and it will leave everyone filled up with nutritious ingredients and none of the crap. This is especially good when you've got an asian food craving but don't want the [...]

The reality (and one of the intentions) of our big move out of the Bay Area and to the Pacific Northwest is that we really need to be conscious of the money we spend. For this reason, among others, we are working to be homemakers in every aspect of life that we can. When I [...]

What a Sunday we had yesterday! Nothing makes me happier than getting outside to play and explore in nature with my friends, family, and pups. And yesterday was the best combination of all 3. Hours of exploring with my husband, brother, his girlfriend, and our pups in Santa Cruz's Nisine Marks State Park, followed by [...]

It should come as no surprise by now that I am a huge advocate of homemade bone broth. Look no further than THIS post to see why. The cool thing about this healing bone juice is that you don't need much to reap some benefits (although the more, the healthier, of course). The  not so cool [...]

How many of you have tried my chunky chili recipe? Of all my recipes, I have gotten the best feedback from this one. People seem to LOVE it, and I have to admit, I don't blame them; we do too. It's been a staple at our house every week (the ones we've been home, at [...]

So, I got a new pressure cooker. It's beautiful. In fact, I sit and sing to it in the evenings.... not really, but I seriously love this thing. Big thanks to Danielle Walker of Against All Grain for posting a great deal for Cyber Monday last week. You can find the cooker HERE. It rocks. [...]

A couple weeks back, I had a client of mine send me the link to THIS article titled Embracing Fat for a Healthy Heart Is a Notion Based on Flawed Science. The writer, Dean Ornish, MD, is also one of the docs behind Forks Over Knives, a film that sets out to prove that many of [...]

Due to the fact that Rusty and I are packing and moving everything we own in two days, this post is going to be short and sweet. We're not leaving the bay area, just relocating to a new spot. The Bruner kitchen might just get a new look for you guys, but the same delicious [...]
