We did a crazy dessert tonight: Peeps fondue. I know, it’s a school night and all that sugar!
My daughter received this Peeps “cookbook” last year and has been talking about the fondue recipe since then. Yes, for an entire year. It’s Peeps season. How could I say no?
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.

Bring on the spinach, curly kale* and leaf lettuce mix!
After much debate on whether or not to get a juicer, I decided to opt for the NutriBullet. I know it’s technically not a juicer, but it does an amazing job and there’s no leftover pulp. So far, I’m in love.
I have only eaten Ethiopian food once before, a long time ago, and don’t remember much about the experience. My husband and I are always looking to try new restaurants and types of cuisine, so when he suggested buying a groupon for a local African restaurant, I said, “Sure!”
Then I found [...]
I know I slacked off on my Summer CSA posts. I should probably do a wrap-up of the second half, but after spending the day preserving greens, I need to talk about the Winter CSA.
It’s every two weeks. We’ve only had one pickup so far and boy did we get a [...]
