Healthier Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Giants

Hold on to your hats, people! I actually captured a photograph of something edible. Something delicious. Something for YOU! You guys, I have to confess that I have been mentally opposed to #pumpkiningallthethings this season. It could be because I took a beach vacation at the end of September, or maybe because the food industry […]

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 […]

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. […]

Papaya Cream Popsicles (Papaya Paletas)

Popsicles, again? Yes, always. Orange popsicles, that is, since I apparently that’s my specialty. (See these creamsicles and mango yogurt pops for the proof.) While cleaning out the fridge last week, I came upon half a papaya that needed some love (aka I didn’t have the heart to throw it out.) Usually I buy papaya […]

Coconut Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies (Guest Post)

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Jody from Living Nutrition. Jody comes up with the most delicious looking recipes- her smoked cherry chicken wings and banana split ice cream cake are just begging to be made at my house! And don’t get me started on these cookies- no-bake thumbprints are genius. Thanks, Jody, for […]

Mango Swirl Popsicles

Can we all agree that popsicles are having a moment? Maybe it’s the summer heat + all the gorgeous Pinterest inspiration, but I’ve had popsicles on the brain. When I saw a bag of ripe mangos in the Kroger dollar produce bin, my brain immediately said, “Popsicles. Probably with a yogurt swirl. Let’s do this.” […]

Coconut Banana Bread (GAPS, Paleo, Grain-free)

    I think my kids are getting sick of bananas. They used to eat them up non-stop, but not lately. No interest at all. Whole bunches used to disappear in a day or two, but now all my bananas are sad, neglected and brown. But that means I get the chance to give them […]

16 Summer Sweet Potato Recipes

Last week, I shared my favorite summer chicken recipes. Today, I’m back with 16 ways to use the humble sweet potato. (I’m actually not eating sweet potatoes right now, but for some reason, I am still craving them and hoarding sweet potato recipes like it’s the end of the internet. It’s only a little heartbreaking […]

Patriotic Pancake Stacks

I am pumped about these Red, White and Blueberry Pancake Stacks that I’m sharing at MPMK today. Seriously, I love them. I want to feed them to everyone. They are adorable, are they not? Perfect for 4th of July breakfast or any other patriotic holiday. Let’s celebrate ‘Merica with a short stack this year! Best […]

Coffee Cake (Grain-Free, Paleo, GAPS)

The scene in my kitchen at 6:30AM this morning: Two half-dressed kids are clamoring at my feet for their milk cups to be filled. Three-year-old Elliott climbs up into the helper tower, discovers the pan of coffee cake and yells, “LUCY! CAKE FOR BREAKFAST!” She squeals and nods her head to tell us she’s on […]
