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

By | 2020-04-25T14:07:25-08:00 April 8th, 2020|Health, Nutrition, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

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 [...]

Pink Pickled Onions

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 [...]

It's that time of year again. Cold weather, changing leaves, family gatherings, appreciation for all that life has given us, and of course delicious food. Since starting this blog, my family has kind of handed over the reigns in most everything involving food. First, because I am a little particular about what I put in [...]

warm roasted cauliflower and kale winter salad

By | 2019-11-25T19:30:30-08:00 November 18th, 2018|Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

I made this for the first time for my amazing friend Jenna (of Healthy Mama Space) and her family on a recent trip down to San Diego when they welcomed us into their home and treated us like family. Having opportunities to cook a meal for friends is my favorite way to show my love [...]

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 [...]

super crispy potato bits

By | 2017-08-15T07:25:09-08:00 August 17th, 2017|Health, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

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, [...]

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 [...]
