Greetings CSA families! The green beans, collard greens & swiss chard are coming along slowly still. I promise we planted more than what you have been getting. I’m personally feeling impatient about the garden progress. I usually have loads of beans and squash (my favorites) by this time and I go out each day […]

Favorite Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Everly’s kindergarten snack day was this week at school. We are gluten free so snacks always take some advance planning. Her class knows she is gluten free but we understand that not everyone will remember or care about her not being able to eat glutenous snacks… so I do my best to find her delicious […]
Fruit Filled Gluten Free Clafoutis Variations: A delicious puff pancake to try!
In our house, we first fell in love with the puff pancake thanks to Nathan’s TV reporter travels back in Arizona.

Kombucha: Digestions Friend & How You Can Grow Your Own Kombucha Starter.
Somewhere along the way we discovered kombucha at a natural food store, it was actually Nathan and his love of tea. He was surprised when he took his first drink because of how different it tasted. Very much fermented with a hint of vinegar. He had me try it too, I wasn’t a fan but […]
Getting in to the fall spirit…
On Sunday (when I found out I was pregnant and won my wedding dress on ebay) N and I also went to the Englebrecht Apple Orchard where we collected 2 10lb bags of apples and had some quality time. In October we love to pick our own apples and make all kinds of yummy stuff, […]
