    Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal with Cream Cheese Topping (Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar Free, Dairy-Free Option)

    Friday, February 7, 2014

    I have had this idea in my head for so long. Carrot cake baked oatmeal… carrot cake baked oatmeal.. I just couldn’t shake it! I typically make this simple baked oatmeal and we just switch up our toppings, but it was high time I got to experimenting with the recipe. Before we move on, can […]

Orange Cream Vitamin C Gummies

Vitamin C! I want to start this off by saying something really important about how essential Vitamin C is for your health, but all I can think about is this Vitamin C. Remember her? That graduation song, man. It gets me every time. Class of 2005, never forget!  Okay, real talk. Vitamin C is necessary/awesome […]

Yellow Lard Cake with Berries and Cream (A ‘Beyond Bacon’ Giveaway)

This weekend, my little girl turned 2. I just love that little peanut and her growing personality. I would say I’m excited to be moving out of the baby stage.. but it’s only a few months before we move back into it. This was her birthday cake! I know it’s not the typical two-year-old birthday […]

Cold and Flu Fighting Gummy Snacks

I have the sniffles. And my little girl has a runny nose. We haven’t had any sickness around here all winter, so I got to thinking about what might have changed in our habits in the past few weeks. Then it hit me- we were out of gummies! It may seem trivial, but these gummies […]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites (No Refined Sugar, Grain-free and Gluten-free Options)

I miss you guys! What’s happening? What’s new? How’s your pumpkin carving/Halloween costuming/PSL consumption going this year? We are a bit of a Halloween-neutral family. We will dress up if there’s a party to go to, take the kids trick-or-treating, buy a few pumpkins and hit the fall festival scene, but we don’t love Halloween. […]
