I get asked all the time about Evie's first foods journey and what she eats now as a toddler (woah, when did that happen?). The reality is that she eats what WE eat, and it's been that way from the start. Doing more of a baby led weaning approach (our own version, because I am [...]

*old post, but updated recipe - it was fun reading this back from 3+ years ago, pre-babe, pre-huge life changes, but still pretty dang happy and enjoying the outdoors* What a Sunday we had yesterday!

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. [...]

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 [...]
