This is my new favorite soup! It’s creamy, flavorful and uses my new favorite cut of meat; the pork hock. And it all comes together easily in a slow cooker. This makes winter bearable.
This soup is on a whole new level of awesome. Roasting veggies is my favorite way to eat them. So roasting veggies and then turning them into a soup is pretty much the perfect combination. And adding curry is the perfect flavor. Even veggie haters will love this soup.
But being the amazingly caring wife I am, I told my husband I’d make him ANYTHING he wanted for his birthday dessert. His answer: no bake cookies. I looked at him for a moment like he’d just kicked my childhood puppy. I knew my self control would get the better of me. I got out […]
I’m a big believer that mindset has a huge impact on how we feel. Not just mentally and emotionally but physically as well. This week I had a shift in mindset that improved my entire outlook. I share it because I hope it may help some of you who are going through trials big or […]
I love hummus! I eat it on veggies, on wraps, on hot dogs (way better than ketchup) and on a well-rounded spoon. I decided I wanted to make my own, but I also wanted to up my veggie consumption. So I decided to replace the beans with roasted cauliflower. My life will never be the […]

We decided to try a natural approach. Not only did it work but it was way more fun than dropping pellets in […]
I needed to make a chocolate dish for a get-together but needed something healthy and super fast to make. I decided to make these clusters of chocolate with dried fruit and nuts. These are so good! I’m almost embarrassed they’re so easy! Everyone loved them and I felt like I stayed true to who I […]
Today I have an awesome recipe for you! We made the most creamy, rich, perfectly sweet frozen fudge pops last week. All I had to do was throw 5 ingredients into a blender. And all the ingredients were mom-approved!!!
Too much of our lives has moved from the outdoors to the indoors. Instead of working outside on the land we’ve moved to office buildings. Instead of walking to work, school and to friends’ houses, we drive. We were designed to be in nature and here’s why.
My son and I got in a big fight this week. I’m pretty sure the words “all your toys” and “on fire” and “some kids don’t even have food” were used. To be honest, it was pretty ugly. I felt like a failure as a mom. Then meeting another mom completely changed my perspective.
