Sweet Potato Pancake with Wilted Spinach and Egg

I am always trying to come up with recipes that use the standard ingredients I always keep in the house.  Keeping a stash of regular and reliable items in the pantry and fridge ensure that a healthy, simple and economical meal is never far off. For lunch yesterday I came up with a delicious meal […]


What To Expect + GIVEAWAY!

Perhaps the most important lesson I’ve learned during the course of my life is to always pay attention to my intuition.  The times when I’ve been the most unhappy are the times when I ignored the little voice inside.  A woman’s intuition is never wrong, and this is especially true for mothers. In general, I’m […]


Gone Fishin’

Since Vivian was born six weeks ago we’ve been spending a little more time inside.  I try to plan a fun activity every morning, but sometimes by the afternoon my energy is spent and I don’t feel like venturing out.  I’ve been brainstorming quiet activities to do with Evie and Mack, and last week I […]

Homemade Mothering in USA Today

I was interviewed for an article about green cleaning in a recent issue of USA Today.  I feel so passionately about the importance of cleaning with simple homemade solutions.  Not only does making my own cleaning products save lots of money, but its infinitely healthier for my family and the planet.  Not to mention the […]


Chocolate Cookies Via Pinterest

I did it! For the first time ever, I actually made something I pinned on Pinterest! The other afternoon Mack refused to nap, and if I wanted to keep him out of trouble I knew I’d have to keep him busy.  So, he and I got to work in the kitchen on these flourless chocolate […]


From Clean Clothes to Dirty Trash

We don’t have much dry cleaning.  My husband wears jeans or athletic shorts to work every day, and my usual uniform consists of yoga pants or leggings or, if I’m feeling fancy, jeans.  I’m very grateful for this as dry cleaning is expensive, and the spooky chemicals involved can’t be good for anyone.  Dry cleaning […]


Taking my Takeya Water Bottle Along + GIVEAWAY

I don’t think I am a judgmental person – I firmly believe that God made all of us different because we are all special.  Although I live a certain way, I don’t expect everyone to live like me.  That would be foolish!  However, I am pretty judgmental when I see someone drinking out of a […]


Chris’ Carrot Cupcakes

I think I was a Homemade Mother long before I was a mother.  I’ve always been borderline obsessed with taking care of our planet, and my independent streak has always pushed me to do things on my own.  I even made my own wedding cake – it just didn’t seem right to pay too much […]


Meez Meals – Day 5 – Sicilian Pasta + GIVEAWAY!!!!!!

I prepared our final Meez Meal for dinner last night.  Just like the first four meals, the Sicilian Pasta with Cauliflower and Herbed Oil was easy to assemble and completely delicious.  I have leftovers for lunch today and I’m already getting hungry! This week has been a lot of fun for me.  The folks at […]
