It seems fitting that I started writing this right before vacation and finished just after coming home. A few days before we left I went on a roasting frenzy to cook up all the remaining veggies in the fridge. I served them with everything — warm and cold. Potatoes with eggs for [...]
There’s cheesecake in the fridge and a box of Girl Scout cookies in the pantry. I’m trying very hard not to eat either.
The other night I was tired and hungry, and needed a quick healthy alternative. I whipped up this simple little dip and was pleasantly surprised by the creamy [...]
I’m not usually a fan of coconut, but there’s a recipe in Super Natural Every Day that I’ve been wanting to try. Recently my daughter decided she liked coconut popcicles, so I figured since I had a big bag of kale in the fridge, now would be a good time.
My husband keeps teasing me about all of the jars in our fridge. I’ll admit, I have quite a collection, but I’m not a fan of plain water. Here are some fun drinks I’ve been playing around with since it got warm outside.

Then I found [...]

It’s every two weeks. We’ve only had one pickup so far and boy did we get a [...]
I was invited to share my first CSA experience with Community CROPS on their blog. While I was writing, I realized I had some pictures from the Farm Walk that would be fun to share. It was a lovely evening and my daughter had a blast. If you’re local, I recommend going next [...]
