SEPTEMBER 2019 Favorites

Happy OCTOBER, my friends! And happy Autumn! ❤️ I adore this time of year for so many reasons: leaves changing color, crisp + cool air, getting cozy in sweaters (and soon scarves), apples – especially honeycrisp, going to the pumpkin patch, the smell of clove + cinnamon, reading by the fireplace, and lots of comfort…

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…

August 2019 Favorites

Happy SEPTEMBER, dear friends! We’re fast approaching my favorite season, but this has certainly been a good summer. August was especially good to us (minus a trip to urgent care!) with fun new finds, delicious recipes, devour-able books, beautiful hikes, AND a new addition to our little family! It’s been exactly one year since our…

RECIPE: Build-Your-Own Baked Oatmeal

There’s something about eating out of a bowl that I find both comforting and satisfying. It’s really a perfect vessel – it has a wall to hold pile in a wide variety of foods. Ice cream, stir-fry, salad, pasta, soup, and oatmeal! And what do all of those things have in common?? They’re all foods…

RECIPE: Tahini Mocha

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with tahini. The first recipe I ever published here, many years ago, did indeed use tahini. I even joke with people that if I ever write a book, it will be all about tahini! Funny story….have you ever gotten so excited about something such as a book, a…

July 2018 Favorites

Hello, sweet friends! And happy August! How are you all?? July was a HOT month…pretty much mid-upper 90’s every day. Lots of time in Willow’s kiddie pool under an umbrella! We’ve decided we need a bigger pool for next year 😉 Her face in this photo is priceless! July was also an emotional month that…

Strawberry Kombucha Pops

I don’t know what it’s like by you, but here in Bend, OR, it is HOT. It feels like it’s been near 100° for at least two weeks and since we don’t have AC, all I’ve been living on is smoothies and salads…and sitting in front of a fan…or in a cramped kiddie pool with…

June 2018 Favorites

Happy July, my friends! Can you believe it?? I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far! June was a fun-filled month with a road trip to Yellowstone, watching our garden grow, and just lots of time outside. More exciting news…Willow lost her first tooth the night before we left for our trip and then lost…
