Oh this week. So much good, so many lessons, so many giggles, so much sunshine. I’d say it was 75% awesome, 25% incredibly hard, but 100% beautiful and life-giving. I’m excited about the weekend to really rest and re-energize, spend time with friends, work on creating, and getting ready for the beginning of my series […]

Asian Quinoa Edamame Salad

July 9, 2015

Some weeks I have my stuff together, and some weeks I’m flying by the seat of my pants every single day.   This week? This week is so much of the latter that it’s silly.   We’re talking eating up our pantry staples (which, you know, is why we have them), hauling two kiddos to […]

Crazy Good-for-You Blueberry Crisp

July 7, 2015

So I’m sure you’re wondering what the heck I’m doing showing you a photo of a mostly-eaten blueberry crisp. It’s so far out of the bounds of normal food blogging these days…but y’all? This doesn’t have a stupid-long recipe title with a laundry list of ingredients because THIS is something that I would actually make […]

Postpartum Health: Baby #2

July 6, 2015

Y’all, as I write this we are smack dab in the middle of an early 4-month sleep regression (he’s currently 3-1/2 months old). I’m exhausted, A is exhausted, and I still haven’t fully moved him to his crib upstairs yet. It’s rough. So rough that I wandered all over our house looking for a piece […]

HELLO long weekend! There’s really not much that’s better than long weekends, right? Except for maybe retirement   At the moment we don’t have any 4th of July plans, and I’m 100% fine with that. As I’ve gotten older I’ve become much more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda gal, so no plans is totally OK. I’m […]

July 2, 2015

What’s everyone planning for the 4th this year?! It’s always so much fun to plan outdoor get-togethers, spend time with family and friends, and get ready for the fireworks show to start. Honestly, for the past couple of years, we haven’t done a lot in the way of events because figuring out how to have […]

Crostini with Fresh Basil Pesto, Cream Cheese and Stone Fruit

July 1, 2015

 It’s summertime and the living (and eating) is good, amen? Most of us have super easy access to tons of basil during these hot months, and what better way to utilize all of that bounty than with a big batch of fresh pesto? We love to entertain, but with two young children it can be […]

Cherry Apricot Coconut Oil Muffins

June 29, 2015

It’s no secret I adore Ina Garten. Her recipes are spot on, I love her style, and I kind of just want to camp out in her garden. That makes sense to camp out in the North East year-round, right?   No?   However, as much as I admire Ina one thing drives me nuts […]

The BEST Honey Mustard Dressing

June 25, 2015

This is one of my single-most viewed recipe ever on this site, and y’all? I must admit I’m pretty stoked about it. First of all, honey mustard dressing comes second only to a spicy, garlicky Ranch dressing if you ask my Texas-loving self. A great honey mustard is great on almost every foodstuff in the […]
