Well, a lot has happened lately. I’ve been traveling, making kombucha, building a house, working, and leaving balled up underwear in my pant leg of my SKINNY jeans while I’m in public. I can’t lie about this stuff. It happened. For real. So first on the list, I got to attend the amazing Weston A. Price Foundation again this year. Last year was my first one and I pretty much told them to sign me up for life. It was an amazing time with speakers and friends and food. Okay, so it was really mostly about the food. The conference […]
Inspired by a photo I saw from The Urban Poser-gah, I LOVE that lady, I decided to give it a whirl and the results were AMAZING! So amazing that Denny wanted to eat it again tonight for dinner! This dinner is pretty darn simple, although you do need to think ahead a bit to prep the sour cream. I thought I read some where about making your own coconut sour cream but I didn’t get to experiment so I ended up with this dairy free sour cream with a cashew base. (Side note- it is also really good dipped with […]

We had started stockpiling tomatoes on our counter…between our CSA box, friends and sweet patients who brought us tomatoes we had a TON. So it was time to do make some delicious sun-dried tomatoes! I made these last year and ended up just eating them straight instead of using them in recipes because they were so delicious. Some how I lost my recipe, so my mama inspired what I did to these little guys-thanks mom! Sun Dried Tomatoes A bunch of tomatoes, seeds removed as best as possible Olive oil Sea Salt Pepper oregano basil Cut the tomatoes in half […]
I know, I know, I have fallen off the face of the earth for a while, but I never forgot you, and I never stopped thinking of all of you!

Please forgive me, I will do better now…at least until a newborn baby comes […]
