pesto spaghetti squash bake

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 [...]

cider apple cake and a celebration

By | October 10th, 2016|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Recipes|

This post is in honor of my favorite human on this planet. If you didn't know already, that's Rusty (my husband). I try to keep him out of the limelight, as he's a bit of an introvert, but this post (and this recipe) are for him. When we moved out of the rapidly growing, fast-paced [...]

lemony garlic grilled chicken breast

By | August 5th, 2016|Health, Marinades and Sauces, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

nut buffer protein muffins

By | March 16th, 2016|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes|

Earlier this week, after a grueling CrossFit workout, I had a serious hankering for muffins after a friend mentioned making some for her kiddo. I am big believer in listening to cravings. And I knew that I needed some extra protein to refuel and to prep for the busy day ahead. After a quick perusal of [...]

for the love of lasagna

By | 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 [...]

Hi! It's been a while, and I am sorry. I still love all of you, and I hope you love me. In case you've gotten a little perturbed by my recent scantness of postings, I decided to bring to you the simplest, and perhaps most uniquely delicious, cookie recipe ever to win back your hearts. [...]

super easy squash and kale soup

By | February 7th, 2016|Autoimmune Paleo, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

I frequently discuss the importance of real/whole food as the source for all of the nutrients we need to heal, perform, and thrive. But one of the issues many people seem to face when it comes to getting all the needed nutrients is that it can be daunting to eat a giant bowl of greens or [...]

beef and bacon chunky pumpkin chili

By | January 28th, 2016|Pastured Meat, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

The joys of preparing food go deeper than a hobby or the taste testing. This recipe is a perfect example of that. Making a meal at home for yourself and/or the ones you love goes beyond saving money or eating clean; it allows the opportunity to nourish on a deeper level, no matter how fancy [...]
