quiche for all seasons

This year is off to a crazy, albeit awesome, start, and I am taking my clean eating with me. Busy days are no excuse to let food quality go to the wayside. In fact, the busier life gets, the more important it is to eat nutrient dense foods because they keep energy levels high, mood [...]

classic chicken pot pie

It's that time of year. Nights are long. Temperatures are low. And comfort food is on the mind. I've got memories of homemade chicken pot pie that make my mouth water. And this time of year, nothing sounds better. So, I've gone to work to create a delicious grain-free classic chicken pot pie that will fulfill [...]

Cheers to a great 2015. Loads of change came my way (and by no happenstance also to Radical Roots). The blog got a whole new facelift. I moved to a whole new state. I explored the forests and beaches of the Pacific Northwest, picked wild blackberries, grew our first bit of food, foraged for mushrooms, and climbed [...]

Pumpkin pie easily makes my top ten favorite desserts list. It's so good, in fact, that I've decided to make a whole new dessert inspired by this favorite. This past month we had a group of friends over to hangout. We provided a variety of nibbles but no sit down meal. I wanted to make [...]

Fall is here, Thanksgiving is around the corner, and I am one happy lady. I love this time of year. For the falling leaves, the crisp air, my favorite seasonal produce, and all things pumpkin. Which brings me to the point of this post... Only a few days into November, and I've already roasted a [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]
