Nourishing Pinterest Boards + {Spiced Dessert Quinoa}

Hi friends! I am excited to share a few changes with you:  1) I am planning on posting new recipes more frequently (remember when I said I was cutting back?) 2) in order to make posting more frequently feasible, I am planning on shortening up my posts a bit, with one or two less photos...as seen in my recent Quinoa Bruschetta post. 3) I am creating a lot more Pinterest boards to separate out all of my recipes into categories ...

E-Cookbook Giveaway!! + {Double Chocolate Brownies}

If you didn't already hear, yesterday my e-cookbook was made available for download. THANK YOU so much for those of you who already got your copy!! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the recipes, photography, and personal stories :)  Surprisingly perhaps, I priced the cookbook really low (ie. less than a latte --only $3.99) hoping more people would have access to the nourishing recipes inside ...

Gluten-free Spice Muffins w/Dark Chocolate Streusel

Let's start with this...I am not gluten-free. I have never been gluten-free.  I don't intend to become gluten-free. I honestly didn't know much about gluten-free and was afraid to post about it for fear that I would claim some recipe was gluten-free when it was not. But really, it's not that scary. And from the sounds of it, from the answers/responses I received on my Facebook page, many of you would appreciate and like to see some gluten-free recipes here on my blog-- either for yourself or your family members ...

Fudgesicles, Quinoa "Mac", Muffins & Pasta Salad...oh my!

Things are pretty busy right now, as I'm sure most of you can relate to -- with the end of summer and start to the back-to-school chaos. What makes my back-to-school chaos particularly chaotic, is that I WORK at a school... so I have to go back 2 weeks earlier than most, scramble for additional childcare, and oh, publish an e-cookbook somewhere in the middle of all that chaos :) It's all getting done, slowly but surely. ...

Ikea Trip + Homemade {Vanilla Raspberry Creamsicles}

It all started with our recent "day trip" to Ikea. I call it that because it really takes almost an entire day to see and experience all Ikea has to offer! If you've never been to one... let me just tell you, it's like being on another planet. It's massive. By the time you're done, you've probably walked a good 2 miles. There's so much to look at it, it really is overwhelming. They have a play area, a full restaurant, and more stuff to buy than

Let them Eat: {Single Serve Double Chocolate Cake}

It all started when I was craving something sweet yesterday, but didn't want to make a giant pan of dessert to sit in my fridge and tempt me for the following days, or even weeks. For example, my family's been eating that Berry Cobbler for like 2 1/2 weeks now...hahaha.  I know, tough life. :)  Anyways, I was perusing my friend Lee's blog "Fit Foodie Finds" (which is a very regular occurance for me), and I stumbled upon her ...

Driscoll's Berry Giveaway + {Berry Cobbler w/Kahlua}

I love it when great things happen without even trying.  It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Maya Angelou--- "You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off of you."      I love blogging. I love creating nourishing recipes. I love photographing beautiful food. And it seems people are noticing. ... Read more » about Driscoll's Berry Giveaway + {Berry Cobbler w/Kahlua}

Joining My Local CSA + {Peach Cobbler w/Quinoa}

Many of you who have followed my blog for a long time know that I recently moved to the mountains. It's a bit remote... and by "remote" I mean: 25 min to the grocery store, 25 min to school, 25 min to church --- ok, 25 min to get ANYWHERE!!!  But the closest CSA (community supported agriculture) pick-up used to be over an hour away. ...
