Chocolate Cake Mix Rice Krispie Treats

We are finally getting settled in our new home.  The move was long and exhausting – there were a few moments when I just wanted to call it quits.  But, my Army captain husband kept us on task and moving in the right direction, and on more than one occasion I looked at him in […]


Homemade Whipped Cream

Most of the decisions I make at the grocery store directly relate to the overall healthfulness of the products.  I go out of my way to stretch our grocery budget so we are eating thoughtfully, gratefully and healthfully. I also make shopping decisions based on the kind of packaging wrapped around the product.  In consideration […]


Happy FOUR + Cocoa Buttercream Frosting

My sweet Evie turned 4 this weekend. Like most little girls, Evie couldn’t wait to celebrate her birthday.  It was the talk of our household for a solid six weeks, and I can happily say that it was a great day for her. We gave her a Barbie Dream House much like the one my […]


Paleo Fudge Pops

Chris joined a cross-fit gym several months ago.  Cross-fit is a professional, challenging and evidence-based work-out program that is designed to push users to the limit through encouragement and teamwork.  Chris really likes the competitive atmosphere of cross-fit, and his body is now fitter and healthier than its ever been.  In my humble opinion, he […]


Maple Cocoa Popsicles

I hate to sound like a party pooper, but I think I’m about to jump on the anti-sugar bandwagon. After educating myself on the health benefits of whole foods and watching Dr. Robert Lustig’s lecture on the damage caused by sugary foods, I’m starting to lose my taste for it.  Last year I tried out […]


Honey and Cinnamon Ice Milk

As I’ve written about many times before, I really love the co-op we belong to.  Twice a month, local farm-fresh food is delivered to my area, and my family is happier and healthier because of it.  We order everything from pasture-raised beef to free-ranging chickens to sweet maple syrup.  Perhaps one of my favorite items […]


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 […]


Ladies Who Brunch

Some of the ladies in my family gathered this morning for an informal brunch at my Aunt Margie’s house.  It was a celebration for many reasons: the end of winter, St. Patrick’s Day, the return of my mom and grandma who had been out of town for a few months, the two new babies my […]


Homemade Banana Cake – Just Because!

We’ve been keeping an eye on our spending the past few months, so weekends for us have been kinda quiet.  To make Saturday evening a little more special I employed Evie and Mack in the kitchen to help me bake a special dessert.  With a bunch of brown bananas sitting on the counter top, I […]


Chia-Raspberry Pudding

I wrote about chia seeds a few months ago, and ever since I’ve been having fun trying out new uses for them in the kitchen.  I saw a recipe in a recent issue of Food & Wine magazine for a chia “pudding”, and it seemed easy, interesting and healthy.  The magazine recipe called for almond […]
