Fabulous {Holiday Bread Pudding} w/cranberry bagels

As I mentioned in my recent Holiday Bark recipe post, I am in full-on holiday mode.  It's just a matter of days before the decorations come out. And soon we'll be heading out into the forest to chop down our tree.  I admit, I've already lit the pine "Christmas" candle...more than once. And Babycakes and I have started to listen to Christmas music in the car on our commute to work/school. ... Read more » about Fabulous {Holiday Bread Pudding} w/cranberry bagels

A Nourished Family + {Quinoa Brownies}

Let me just say, again: I'm so thankful for all of you!! I love the mutual encouragment and inspiration.  In a recent email exchange with one of my readers, I was reminded that my goal and my focus is about having a nourished family. Not just me. Not just my health. Not just my happiness...but Dear Hubby and Babycakes too.  And that is why so many of my recipes are tested, tried, and devoured by my family before they make their way to you. ...

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 ...
