New Baby, New Beginning: Postpartum Journey

I took this picture exactly three weeks ago before going to my last doctor's appointment of this pregnancy. I remember thinking to myself, "This may be the last belly picture I take before we meet this little guy." Little did I know, just hours later in this exact spot, my water would break all over...

Easy Oven Roasted Chicken Shawarma

In case you haven't heard, we're expecting our newest addition, a baby boy, in just a few more months! As all of you mama's know, the cravings hit hard and fast. I've been doing my best to curb them when I can with homemade healthy meals rather than giving in to the ease (and expense)... Continue Reading →

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins (Grain Free)

My 20 month old has a bad case of cabin fever from being cooped up in the house these past couple weeks due to lots of snow and a "polar vortex" (says the weather guy). He's sick of his toys, won't stay out of the kitchen (where he likes to open a snack, take one... Continue Reading →

Bacon and Apple Fall Salad with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette

I don't know about you, but my family typically skips the green salads on Thanksgiving because there is already so much food and not enough room (on the table and in our stomachs). I know a lot of families do salad on Thanksgiving, and if you've been tasked with bringing one to your family Thanksgiving... Continue Reading →

Banana Nut Muffins (Grain Free, Refined Sugar Free)

Banana nut anything is one of my favorite treats. Doesn't matter whether it's muffins, bread, or pancakes... banana nut is the ultimate comfort combination.

Rather than make a whole Thanksgiving meal for my little family, we're going to have a "mock" Thanksgiving dinner tonight with grilled turkey cutlets, this amazing Classic Gluten Free Stuffing, and of...

Slow Cooker Barbacoa

I apologize for the lack of posts lately... life has been chaotic to say the least. Unfortunately when that happens, cooking gets put on the back burner, and we live off of my freezer meal stash! But don't worry, more recipes will be coming very soon! This Slow Cooker Barbacoa recipe is one of my... Continue Reading →

Grain Free, Veggie-Packed Mac and Cheese

We had this Grain Free, Veggie-Packed Mac and Cheese for dinner last night, and my husband made sure to tell me how much he loved it (he's a food for fuel kind of guy most of the time, so when he compliments a recipe, he really means it). Then, at lunch time today as he... Continue Reading →

Maple Cornbread (Gluten free, Refined sugar free)

My husband has been working all weekend, and I know he's going to be starving and exhausted when he gets home tonight. It's also cold outside- we skipped the 60s and 70s fall weather and jumped straight to the 30s and 40s- leaving Dax and I cooped up in the house because he's already got... Continue Reading →
