Everything but the Kitchen Sink Soup

Hello and happy Friday, my friends! A few years ago, while following an autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet, I created a super simple soup recipe that I pretty much lived on. As time went by and I was able to incorporate more ingredients/foods into my diet, this soup grew along with me! The best part about…

RECIPE: Savory Cream of Buckwheat

If given the choice, I will 9 times out of 10 opt for a savory breakfast….especially during autumn and winter. For years I used to start my day with a smoothie (sometimes I still do), but as time went by, I noticed they didn’t keep me satisfied for very long AND they’re cold! Mornings here…

A Cruelty-Free Day of Thanks

Let me start by saying that this post contains ZERO judgment or graphic animal cruelty videos. We are all at different states of awareness and rather than taking an extremist route by showing you heartbreaking clips or breaking down the cruelty (how it’s done), I’m going to share heartwarming stories, videos, and celebrate the brave…

Savory Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

This time time of year is my absolute favorite – cooler weather, all the wonderful varieties of squash, and lots of soup! I used to always start my day with a smoothie, but these days I’ve traded it in for a bowl of hot soup. Not only is it comforting, but it’s also a great…

REVIEW: January Favorites

We had a few highlights during January – a good bit of snow early in the month, took Willow to use her snowshoes for the first time AND we got our fireplace running! Which meant we were finally able to keep our house heated above 60°! Not even kidding, our house was freezing – I’m…

RECIPE: Chocolate Toffee Oats

Last week, I accidentally created a new sauce recipe and we’ve been hooked on it ever since. I set out to create a caramel sauce, but after asking Josh to try it, we decided it tasted more like toffee…totally not complaining. It has a bold, rich flavor, but unlike the typical cooking process of caramel…

RECIPE: PB&J Oats

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve written a blog post! This summer is flying by and it’s been a hot one, which means less time experimenting in our little kitchen. We ban the use of the oven once the temps get into the 80’s (we don’t have AC) and we’ve had several days of…

RECIPE: Crockpot Four Bean Chili

We LOVE chili and when done in the crockpot, it allows me to throw it all together in the morning and let it cook throughout the day. The flavors have time to really come together and thicken up into a hearty dish. A few weeks back, I had posted a photo on Instagram of our homemade…

Recipe: Bliss Bowl

Salads are usually our favorite way to load up on tons of fresh veggies, but today’s weather had me craving more of a comfort food – something hearty and warm. Before I eliminated soy from my diet, going to Café Yumm was a great, quick place to grab a meal – their Yumm Bowls were to die…
