This post has been on my mind for the last five months. I wanted to make sure I had a simple list of what I truly consider to be must-have items for (new or new again) mommas. My criteria: items had to be sensible, helpful, and something I was incredibly glad to have during my […]
PHEW! I feel like this winter has zipped by. All in all, it’s been pretty mild, too. Unlike last year where we were blissfully buried in snow. Still, we’ve had cold, wintry days and soups have been one of our top go-to meals. Nothing shakes a chill better than soup, after all!
As I write this, the baby (oh, yeah! P.S. I had a baby!) is napping with The Mister and Luv and Bugsy are reading and playing. We’re figuring this out, adjusting to life with three wildlings – all in different seasons. I wouldn’t change it. Except maybe get a little more sleep. That I’d change […]
Quick note: Most of you know, I’m expecting our third child. Annnnytime now. Thanks to the magical ability of scheduling posts, I’ve set this recipe as my last post until I’ve found my groove again. I’ll still be updating social media up until the baby’s arrival. Who knows, he may have already joined our family […]
Our local store had a bunch of lemongrass in stock for a good price. So, naturally, I bought more than my share. I love lemongrass in my Nightshade-Free Curry Powder and I wanted a way to easily add a pop of that lemongrass flavor to soups, curries, veggies… really, anything!
One of my favorite and simplest foods to batch cook is shredded meat. It easily rolls over into breakfast, lunch, or dinner the following day. AND if you cook up an even larger portion, it freezes beautifully!
When The Mister and I worked together, we both *loved* to dip our crispy steak fries in this type of dressing. Of course, we never bothered to look at the ingredients back then. I’m pretty sure they’re not ideal though. After I’d successfully reintroduced mustard seed, poppy seed was the next to challenge. Simply because […]
I had high hopes for this chocolatey spread. I was craving something creamy and nutty tasting to dip my Granny Smith apple slices in. Considering I’ve not tried to reintroduce new foods this pregnancy, that meant no nuts. I knew I’d have to get creative! Thankfully, it turned out better than I imagined it would. […]
This summer when we visited my in laws, The Mister and I were spoiled by a date to Trader Joe’s. Yes, really. 😉 I, of course, bought the sauerkraut I’d heard so much about, knowing once we were back home I’d take a shot making it myself.
