Ya’ll it is the heart of summer and it’s just hot everywhere! I mean, I live in AZ so it’s always hot. Buuuut, no matter where you are, this drink is just the cure you need for this heatwave. I’m not a big drinker, there are just not that many kinds of alcohol that I enjoy. But a mojito? Yes, please! They’re so tangy and refreshing. And really, what screams “tropical paradise” more than pineapple??Read More
Is there any better combo than Peanut Butter and Jelly? I mean, really peanut butter and anything is good in my book! For many years I didn’t eat peanut butter because it wasn’t “paleo.” Then I had some again and thought “dang, that is delicious!” I’d been eating almond butter all this time, which is just sort of marginal. It’s definitely not as yummy as peanut butter. And I realized that I felt fine eating peanut butter, so why intentionally leave something out of my diet that doesn’t harm me?Read More
I think Denver might have the best gluten-free options of any city. There was a delicious restaurant that had gluten-free cuban sandwiches that were amazing. The bread was cuban-style, not just regular white bread or a bun. It was perfect, and I’d get a side of plantain chips. It’s one of the meals that I’ve missed since moving to Tucson.Read More
A few years ago Nice Cream took the Pinterest world by storm when people realized they could make “ice cream” with frozen bananas! It was simple, only required 2 or 3 healthy ingredients, it is naturally vegan and paleo and dairy-free and all the things. I even made it for my best friend’s toddler one time when they were visiting. I thought he’d be so stoked to make his own ice cream! As it turns out, I just traumatized him with my loud food processor. But in the end I did win him over with some delicious banana nice cream.Read More
It’s almost summer! At least here in AZ, summer is practically here already. Super blue, sunny skies, it’s my absolute favorite. Everyone that has a garden gets an overwhelming amount of zucchini in the summer, so here’s a solution! Sweet, moist, zucchini bread! I’ve actually got a couple more tasty zucchini recipes headed your way, but what better way to get started than with classic zucchini bread?Read More
Hi friends! Look at me, writing a blog post! I know it’s been a while, and I’ve actually been testing and photographing recipes that I never posted, haha. But I’m back! I’ve been working through some difficult things, so I appreciate the time away. But I’m feeling more and more like myself again, or perhaps like my new self, so I’m emerging a bit more. I was eager to get back to this space and feel inspired again.
Now, Easter was yesterday, raise your hand if you’ve got some leftover ham! We have a lot! Thankfully ham is super versatile, great for breakfast, on pizza, in this Instant Pot Hambone Soup . It’s also easy to freeze for later. But, I also love ham salad, and it’s seriously perfect for meal prep and packing into lunch boxes.Read More
