Watermelon Lime Mocktail

Watermelon Lime Mocktails - So refreshing and sweet! This is perfect for those times when alcohol is a no-go.

Yay!!! Babies!!!

My blogging buddy Courtney at NeighborFood is going to have a baby like any day now. Courtney is one of the sweetest, kindest, cutest bloggers I know and I can’t wait to see how that baby turns out (I’m thinking curly hair is a must).

Being pregnant myself, I know one of the things I miss at parties is the cocktails. While everyone else enjoys their gin and tonics, mojitos, and rum punch, I’m stuck feeling a little left out. I don’t even drink coffee or soda ever ever, so my options are way limited. Not only do you want your baby shower guest of honor to feel included, but boozy drinks probably wouldn’t be appropriate at a baby shower anyways.

My kids are obsessed with the nature explosion that exists on our property. Calling it “property” makes it sound like we live on a lush estate, which we totally don’t, but we do have a big front yard, a woodsy bluff in the back, and a nature preserve across the street. Whenever I send them…

Nutty Chocolate Oat Bars

I can feel myself starting to slow down. It started with rolling over in bed. It took effort, special tricks, and a little groaning. Next came the switch from running to walking when I’m out for my nightly exercise. Now it’s hard to get up off the couch, I’m making my trips to the floor…

My first baby is SIX today. That simultaneously feels too old and not old enough. She is so smart and independent that I feel like she should be at least seven. We had a party a couple weeks early so one of her friends could attend before her family moved to Denver. At Lola’s request…

Vegan Brownie Batter for One

Vegan Brownie Batter for One

Healthy treats that don’t taste healthy. Isn’t that like everyone’s end game? You and I make this Vegan Cookie Dough for One way more often than we would like to admit. It’s sweet, it’s healthy-ish, and it tastes legit. Bonus points that you get to eat it when you’re pregnant because, seriously, avoiding the raw-egged…

We’ve been so busy having summer fun around here! Casper started swimming lessons last week. After Lola’s rough go of it last year I wasn’t sure what to expect, but he’s rocking it!  Lola and Strummer enjoy playing in the sprinkler area while he has class and I even found the courage to stay for…

Peanut Butter Larabars - TWO ingredients and just a few minutes will give you this supremely satisfying healthy treat!

Peanut Butter Larabars

Look! I made food! And I actually took time out of my busy (napping) schedule to photograph and write about it. It’s a summer miracle. We have been loving summer so far. It hasn’t been terribly warm these last few weeks but that hasn’t stopped us from eating pretty much every meal outside and visiting…

Yeah, so, isn’t this supposed to be a food blog? I’ve been seriously slacking on the recipe posts these last few months, but I’m hoping to turn a corner on that soon. First there was morning sickness, now there’s exhaustion, and I just haven’t had the time or stomach to be trying new things food-wise….

Travel Like a Local: San Francisco

Travel Like a Local: San Francisco

To celebrate ten years of marriage, my husband and I decided to travel to San Francisco for a few days of best friend time and conversation that wouldn’t be interrupted by children. I love to travel, but Jeron, not so much. We’re both actually our most content when just sitting on the couch together, but…
