RECIPE: Pumpkin Banana Loaf

Let me tell you a funny story; Last Thursday was the FIRST DAY OF FALL and instead of doing what I was supposed to do, which was get to them bottom of my inbox, update my media kit and place an online grocery order, OH NO, instead I baked! I baked and baked and baked some more. And then I ate it. THE END.  Now THAT’S a story worth reading! No, but really, last Thursday I found myself in the kitchen, losing myself in a can of pumpkin puree that was gonna be tossed unless put to good use. And so the story goes. I made a Pumpkin […]

DIY: Holiday Bath Bombs

We try and do this as often as we can, get all the babes together under one roof for a fun craft’ernoon with their “pretty much family” friends. Close since they were born, the ages now range from 8 months to 6 years old, finding a craft that everyone can do is not easy, but this one at least everyone can use. Last month we did a Halloween inspired playdate which we managed to make bowls and bowls of Monster Slime and boy was it fun! This time around we changed seasons and geared our craft around the upcoming Christmas holiday. We had all the kids make Peppermint Bath […]

RECIPE: An Evening Cup

If you ask (enough times) you shall receive. …or however that saying goes. I’ve had quite a few of you ask me recently how I make my tea in the evenings, you know the cup that turns the day around from “oh god did that really all happen” to an “ah well, tomorrows another day”. Yes, this cup of tea is that good, good enough to turn even the worst of days around. It’s simple to make, but definitely more work than your average cup of tea. Think about it this way, it’s turning your day around, I think the extra 4 minutes of time to complete the […]

DIY: Pumpkin Spice WHAT?!

I’ve heard and seen some of the most wildest do-it-yourself projects, like turning crafting pom-poms into a rug or taking an old shoe box and turning it into a smartphone projector. I mean thanks to Pinterest, we’ve been able to share our ingenious ideas with those around the world that are wild enough to try it. And this is why I love the internet so much, connecting like minded people from all around the globe over toilet paper roll craft ideas. The season is upon us where leaves start to turn color and fall from the trees, that and everyday products get an upgrade into Pumpkin Spice versions […]

{meat} Monday with Meridian Meats

It’s hard to hide all the deliciousness we’ve been posting on our Instagram feed lately, I mean can you blame me?Farm raised, free range, grass fed meat, what’s not to love (unless of course you’re a vegetarian, and in that case we’re very sorry)? If it’s not from Meridian Meats, frankly I don’t want it. No wait! Scrap that, my sister is going to kill me if she reads this. If what you’re bringing to the table ain’t from Meridian Meats or my sister’s farm, then I ain’t sittin’ down for dinner. Honest to goodness you can taste the difference in a good quality meat, don’t believe […]

RECIPE: “Anything You Have” Crumble

Crumble is seriously my most favoritest dessert, eaten straight from the oven after it’s been topped with ice cold Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, there is no better indulgence in life. The best part, besides the deliciousness would have to be the ease of making a crumble. Literally throw whatever fruit or berry you have kicking around that sound scrumptious together into ramekins, top with a ridiculously easy crumble topping and bake. Like I’m talkin’ no recipe needed peeps, straight from the heart gut. Let me tell you how we made this one as we had to make a few modifications since a third of our house follows a […]

RECIPE: The Ultimate ‘Chewy’ Granola Bar

So, it’s 5pm, you’re well into making two dinner {mothers of picky eaters, you’ll understand} and you glance at the calendar as you open the fridge to grab condiments and you see it. There in big bold letters, Sofia’s Special Helper Day – BRING SNACKS. Fan-freaking-tastic! You better believe I’m not that mom who has a stash of 25 of something that I can whip out and save the day with, so from scratch it is. Hunted high and low, and by this I mean googled “snacks to feed 25 kids” and the first word that caught my eye was granola bars. Hit up Pinterest and found a peanut […]

RECIPE: Double Trouble Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m not one for drama, but when it comes to my sweets, chocolate, and late night snacks I’ve been known to cry tears of happiness over success in the kitchen. My family has had to make a swift change in our everyday eats due to some health issues for both the man and I. We’ve since adopted the ways of a Paleo’er if you will, and have been doing as well as we can; I however am having a hard time feeling any sorta’ success in the ways of baking. Almond Flour, I got it, Coconut Flour, got it, Tapioca Flour and Arrowroot Starch, the pantry is stocked, […]
