dark chocolate coconut cashew butter cups

So, on a whim one morning, overcome with a desire for super dark chocolate and needing an extra brain boost from fat and Lions Mane, I decided to throw together some ingredients to see what would happen. And holy shit, magic happened. I posted on Instagram as the experiment progressed, and the response was real. [...]

Guess what, friends... I am on shrooms, and I am in love. Yes, I said it: shrooms. Four Sigmatic mushrooms, to be exact. Beyond the Portobello, an entire kingdom of mushrooms exists, many with amazing health benefits for immunity, energy, and longevity that have been studied for centuries. The folks at Four Sigmatic believe in the [...]

Mamas Guide to Portland

If you've been following along over on Instagram (check my highlights), you know we recently got back from a trip to Portland, Oregon. This was Evie's third trip by plane, and they just keep getting more and more fun as she gets older. We're lucky to have an easy traveler (thus far) who actually seems to [...]

This is the first time in a LONG time that I've made a recipe and then posted said recipe in the same day. I am giving myself major props here, especially because I am coming off of 5 days of solo parenting that also included flying solo with the babe. Life ebbs and flows, my [...]

crack sauce 3 ways + a rainbow bowl of love

It's in gratitude that I honor my friend and Modern Mamas Podcast cohost, Jess, for the naming of this sauce. It is, in fact, potentially as addictive as a drug, but without all the nasty shit that comes along with drug use. Actually, it's quite the opposite: life giving, nourishing, uplifting, and energizing (the kind [...]

coconut tahini stir fry

*Note: this is an old recipe that I decided to revamp because we've fallen deeply in love with this one all over again this past week. Dinner done in less than 20 and flavor that is to DIE for. My husband keeps asking for it, and I keep using the coconut tahini sauce on E [...]

After an impromptu Instagram story of Evie's nursery, I got overwhelmingly positive feedback in favor of this exact post, so here goes nothing! Below is a list of game-changing (or at least very helpful) items that we've used since Evie's birth. The new baby market, like so many others, plays on new parents' emotions, trying to sell [...]
