I've been sharing a lot of our sourdough adventures over on Instagram, and the feedback has been awesome. As I mentioned, I’ll be sharing my loaf how-to in the coming weeks (and I'll be sure to link it all here too), but for now, here’s another family favorite that I threw together one morning when Evie [...]

It's that time of year again. Cold weather, changing leaves, family gatherings, appreciation for all that life has given us, and of course delicious food. Since starting this blog, my family has kind of handed over the reigns in most everything involving food. First, because I am a little particular about what I put in [...]

I LOVE persimmons - persimmons with nut butter, persimmons in salads, persimmon muffins, persminis, and now, in what is potentially my new favorite persimmon thing: my gluten free persimmon loaf.

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, [...]

Alright, it's time for smoothie bowl number two! If you missed the first one, check out my banana turmeric bowl HERE. I've had these two on rotation pretty much every day.

If having a newborn has taught me anything (it's taught me a lot actually), it's that having easy to grab, nutrient and energy dense, balanced foods on hand is IMPERATIVE. I've had a few wonderful friends bring me date balls of varying sorts that I can store in the fridge and grab as needed. Those [...]
