These are THE best banana muffins you will ever taste. They’re GF, DF, and refined sugar free-but you would never know it. Plus, I bet you have everything you need already in your kitchen.

Two, Almost, Three

I don’t often get that ‘personal’ here. I mean, food is personal- i love it, I cook it, I eat it. But the events that influence what I eat, aren’t often talked about. Honestly. Can I be honest? Two, almost, three years ago, my parents decided to divorce. I should say, my father decided, but marriage takesRead more

The BEST Banana Blender Pancakes

My daughter took her first couple of steps today. I cried. I hesitated telling my husband, because, who wants to miss out on a moment like that? However, I did because i’m cruel and had to tell him. I’m so proud of her. Such a cute little munchkin. I’m also pretty proud of these. Recently,Read more

Indian Chickpea Curry

It feels like a Sunday. The house is quiet and I’m laying on the couch with a towel on my head. I think my neighbors are moving. No, they are moving; too many boxes in the hall. I have Dal on the stove and window cleaners are scaling our building. I hope they finish soon…Read more

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Did you know? It’s Mother’s Day in two short weeks. It’s also my little brother’s birthday… tomorrow. So, if you happen to know him give him a ring… or a text… kids his age appreciate a good text. I suppose this ensures that they won’t actually have to have a real conversation with you- heaven forbid.Read more

Almond Joy Granola Bars

1. I got 8 hours of sleep last night. 8!! My nugget actually slept through the night and I just can’t believe it. Life is just full of wonder isn’t it? 2. Sometimes I do the ‘dumb thing’ and think about the past. I’ve deemed this dumb, silly, and quite honestly ‘stupid’ because it causes me toRead more

Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

There are five bar stools in my mother’s kitchen. They each sit hidden underneath the kitchen island facing the stove. If you happen to find a seat here you will be front and center for my mother’s cooking show. From one side you can see her stirring, chopping, smelling, and tasting. Then, just behind you, in aRead more

Paleo Nutella from ECISNP

Today, we have a post from Kylie at “Clean Eating Is the New Pink“. Kylie took up a huge part of my childhood. We would go sledding in my back yard and play cops and robbers in my Mcdonalds Kitchenette. I’ve never had so much fun playing with fake burgers and mini softserve than I have as anRead more

Black Bean Brownies

This is how you enjoy brownies on a diet. Excuse me, while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Made with black beans, coconut sugar, and flax seeds, they’re completely vegan and guilt free.

Melting Cherry Tomatoes with Salmon

Good morning friends! We are in the middle of a facelift over here and I greatly appreciate your patience while we make all of the necessary changes! Now, about that salmon: Every sunday, pre-baby and pro-free time, I would plug in my headphones, make a game plan, and get in a ‘cooking zone’. By the end ofRead more

Dinner: A Love Story

Dinner: A Love Story was one of the first blogs I read about 6 years ago. I was so intrigued by their methods to get their children to eat, their writing, and the beautiful birthday cakes they would make their daughter. All of their rituals seemed to create a beautiful, family, tv show in my head. IRead more

Chicken Salad Lettuce Boats

In anticipation of summertime I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes for chicken salad. I tried this recipe for the first time at a wedding shower a couple years ago and I’ve been making chicken salad this way every since. They’re light, flavorful, and a much healthier alternative to normal chicken salad. ThisRead more
