Anyone else feeling the need to spice up dinners lately? Sheltering at home means a lot of meals in and a lot family feeding that needs to happen. We've been having fun getting creative, turning the same staples into unique meals throughout the week. Take for instance, grass fed ground beef; shift up the spices, [...]

Sourdough Pizza

There is something about homemade pizza night in, paired with a good movie and extra quality family time, that brings a unique kind of joy. Since Willow (our sourdough starter) has become an important part of our lives (along with sourdough bread, Evie's sourdough pancakes, and the many other recipes in my soon to launch [...]

Homemade Hummus

I love hummus. A lot. On sourdough. As a salad topper. With cheese and prosciutto. Shoot, even just with a spoon. With the current shelter at home situation in place (and with how quickly I go through containers of it), I decided it was time to make some myself, and wow am I glad I [...]

This one makes me think of my pink loving little one, and because of that, it will always make me smile. You should've seen her face when I showed her the jar of bright pink pickled onions for the first time. Instant light. Instant Smile, and a big giant "PIIINK!". I think we could all [...]

Savory scone anyone? Cheesy, salty, prosciutto filled grain free scones, to be exact. I never thought I'd see the day that I'd taste a truly kick ass and also grain free scone. But that day has come, and it's thanks to Otto's Cassava flour. I love this flour, friends. I use it in my final [...]

Guess what, friends... I am on shrooms, and I am in love. Yes, I said it: shrooms.

The folks at Four Sigmatic believe in the [...]

counting macros and the postpartum period

THIS IS IMPORTANT: This is my anecdotal recollection of my own unique experience, partly because I think it's important to share my experience about a topic that many mamas think about, and partly because it feels good to me to write down my thoughts so that I can look back at them in the future [...]

A few weeks ago, we met my cousin and his family for brunch at this adorable kiddo friendly farm to table restaurant in Los Altos. In fact, the woman who started the restaurant is Mary from Five Mary's Farm. If you haven't checked her and her amazing family out, you should. She's one of my [...]

grilled watermelon salad

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 [...]
