Most commercial tomato soups have added sugars and some pretty strange ingredients. I found this out the hard way when my kids had a craving and there was nothing I was okay buying them. Naturally, I created my own recipe with ingredients I felt good feeding my own kids.
Avocados ripen in the blink of an eye, so be ready to make the best guacamole when they do with this Tomatillo Starter. Keep a jar in the fridge for a salsa dip or add some to an avocado. Perfect dip either way.
Dates, fresh fruit, and 4 types of seeds blended together and dehydrated to perfection into chewy, crunchy bars. Three flavor variations, one that contains nuts. Which one will be your favorite?
Apple rings can be pretty expensive to buy in the store, and they often have more ingredients in them than just apples. Take control of your food and make it yourself. Dehydrated apple rings are probably the easiest snack to make.
Not all holiday treats are kid-friendly, so make them (or yourself, for that matter) a little something special without the alcohol and added sugars. Homemade cranberry juice lets you control the ingredients and sweetness.
Store brand cranberry juice has added sugars that counteract the benefits of cranberries. This version uses beneficial honey and you control the sweetness.
No canned green beans or condensed soups with weird ingredients in them. Just real, fresh food for your holiday table. The way it should be.
Say that 5 times fast. I feel like I’m Pippi from Mr. Popper’s Penguins: “This is possibly the perfect prime provision” (translation: “this is the best breakfast”). Yeah, I searched the thesaurus for a while to get those words. I’m only a little embarrassed to admit that. So anyway, I recently ran out of eggs, […]
If you didn’t already know it was Fall, the influx of pumpkin recipes would have given you a clue. I honestly don’t see why we have to reserve pumpkin for just one time of the year. It tastes so good, why restrict ourselves? I know it’s hard to make things with pumpkin when you can’t […]
Oh my gosh, what the heck is my problem with snacks lately? I swear I have some real food recipes lined up for you guys, but my gosh, I just can’t quit with the snacky stuff lately. Maybe it’s time for another Whole30, since I failed miserably at my last attempt. Seriously, day 2, I […]
I am the grocery shopper in the house. I mean, obviously, since I’m the one who cooks and I know exactly what I need. On occasion, Rob will get some stuff for me if he’s out, and when he comes to the store with me, he’s the kid-wrangler/cart-pusher (which is awesome, by the way). But when […]
I’m still swimming in peaches over here. Not literally, that would be gross and sticky and I’m a little too OCD for sticky messes. Luckily, the peaches are ripening just a few at a time, so at least I’m not bombarded by all of them all at once, which reminds me of this GIF I […]
Friends, I’d like to make a confession. I. Love. Peaches! I didn’t know I even liked peaches, but as I’ve mentioned here and here, we had a peach tree last summer and thus began my love affair. And now that we live in Colorado, we get uh-mazingly delicious peaches. I just tried a donut peach […]
If you are one of our awesome followers on Facebook, you may have noticed that we recently acquired a freaking awesome new food dehydrator. In the last 4 days since we got it, I have made the following things: dried apple rings; beef jerky; dried basil; dried ginger; strawberry blueberry, and mango fruit leathers. The […]
