Several months ago I asked in instagram stories if anyone I know has returned to an old school way of storing recipes.  I’ve grown more and more frustrated with trying to find our favorite recipes online, Pinterest posts that are dead links because bloggers quit hosting their site, unorganized notes, bookmarks, recipes in my head I have to share out loud if anyone else is cooking.  So frustrating.  I want to not only make our day to day life easier so we all have our favorites in one place, I want to hand down our food traditions to our kids.  I initially decided on a binder and […]

sourdough baby is back

While we have had a pretty traditional kitchen for over 12 years, I didn’t dive in to gluten free sourdough until late last year.  And then I got hurt.  Taryn and Jason took over care of our “dough baby” as Jason lovingly called it.  We use it almost daily, replacing many store bought products.  Gluten free varieties tend to be filled with equally hard to digest ingredients so I was very happy to get rid of a lot of what we were purchasing.  There are so many benefits to eating sourdough! Because it’s fermented, it’s easier to digest and the nutrients are more readily absorbed.  Acquiring more of these essential nutrients […]

blackstone grill fajitas

Fajita week should totally be a thing.  This is the 2nd time we have had fajitas in the last week and we totally cooked enough for tonight plus at least 2 more meals.  That brings our fajita consumption to 4 meals lol.  Don’t judge, they are soooooo good cooked on our blackstone grill  with lime, onions and green, red, yellow and orange peppers.  Served with avocado, black beans, violife vegan cheese on warm siete brand tortillas.  Yum!

My current addiction.

Romaine lettuce, a cup or two of quinoa (cooked in bone broth), blueberries, mandarine oranges and fresh roasted almond slivers (a little ghee and some sea salt toasted on the stove top).  Add a little poppy seed dressing…..TO.DIE.FOR.  Don’t bother making it without the fresh toasted almonds.  They make the whole thing.
