Salish Honey + Goat Cheese Toast

Remember my trip to Salish Lodge & Spa? I left with more than lovely memories, I left with honey! Real, true, amazing honey from Salish’s bees. There is nothing better than local honey. It has immense health benefits and is delicious to boot and so, I add honey to lots and lots of things. I […]

Slow Cooker Beef Roast French Dip + a Giveaway

I live and die by my slower cooker in the Fall and Winter. It’s just so cozy to pop a meal in to cook while I go about my day. Especially with our homeschool preschool and high school pick up routine. Planning a slow cooker meal insures a hot dinner. Otherwise, that isn’t always a […]

Mexi Burgers

Look at me, following through on promises — the recipe I mentioned yesterday! I have quite the history with beef. You see, for 23 years I hated it. Burgers made me gag. Steaks were out of the question. Meatloaf was my worst nightmare. Beef and I just didn’t mix.  Then I got pregnant and all […]

Silk Soy Lavender Mocha

It may be in the 80s this week, but I’ve got my mind on Fall. So much so that before the day warms up I’ve been sipping cozy beverages. But not just plain ol’ coffee, something much, much better. Think on this for a minute … SILK SOY. LAVENDER. MOCHA. Yes, oh yes. I promise […]

Taco Soup A La the Entire Garden

When the internet hands you lemons, you say “Yes! Please! This mama loves her some lemons!” and thank the sweet sponsor who sent those lemons your way :) I’m 5 runs into my 5K training.  This is big you guys, really big. Because I hate to sweat and I hate to run, and yet, it’s […]

Peanut Butter Pops with Protein-Packed Almond Milk

“This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc and its advertisers. All opinions are mine alone.” #SilkAlmondBlends #CollectiveBias Growing up I don’t think almond milk existed. At least not as widely available as it is now. Back then your choices were white milk or chocolate milk … or the horrific strawberry option. Oh, the […]

Cocoa Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

It’s a real travesty I haven’t shared this recipe before. It’s a W-I-N-N-E-R. Big time. I love, crave and adore these cookies. So does my husband! For holidays and celebrations if he doesn’t request Peanut Butter Pie, he requests these. So yummy and the perfect companion to a glass of cold milk or a night […]
