These chops are V E R Y special. They were the centerpiece we made for our sweet Evie's first birthday. this year has been one that I will never ever forget. I know people say that a lot, but I mean it. I really do. It didn't flash by like a blink of an eye. [...]

super crispy potato bits

Since having a baby, I've consistently been looking for no fuss food shortcuts that DON'T sacrifice flavor or nutrition. Unfortunately, the easiest to grab, quickest to eat foods are usually pretty full of crap (read: freezer meals). Knowing what I do about nutrition and how what I eat directly impacts my little one through breastmilk, [...]

Last weekend my wonderful mother-in-law came to visit and brought us a gorgeous watermelon grown old world style by an 80-year-old man in Paso Robles, California where she lives. I knew I had to do something special with it, so I put this mama brain to use brainstorming ideas. Then, as I was scrolling through [...]

It's berry season, my most favorite season of all! I love summer. I love farmers markets, I love berries, and I LOVE cobblers, especially when they're so simple to make that I can do it with a baby in one hand. Oh ya, if you didn't know yet, we had a baby! Evie Wilder Bruner [...]

lemony garlic grilled chicken breast

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 [...]

garlic balsamic aioli burgers

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and I am craving burgers. But first, a bit of somewhat sad news: Rusty and I have decided to take a little break from dairy - not because I think dairy is inherently bad (in fact, good quality, especially raw, dairy is incredibly nutrient dense) - [...]

After the great response I got from posting a photo of this tart on Instagram last night, I knew I shouldn't hesitate on getting the recipe posted for you guys. The inspiration for this recipe came to me after buying far too much rhubarb at farmers market because sometimes too much of a good thing [...]

Memorial Day is here, which means that summer is coming, and I am a happy camper. Sunshine, summertime, huge changes coming our way, and a WHOLE new crop of amazing fruit at farmers market. Nothing says summer like fresh blueberries, bursting with flavor, or biting into a sweet, juicy peach. These two fruits are a [...]
