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 […]
Salt and caramel go together like peanut butter and jelly, but is not really a healthy treat. But you can still enjoy that super delicious combo, now in paleo form with just a few basic ingredients and very little time that doesn’t require any cooking.
You know what everyone loves? Milk and cereal. You know what’s not so good for everyone? Milk and cereal. Quite a conundrum, right? Once we went paleo, cereal was erased from the menu. Milk was easier, since there are so many non-dairy milk substitutes. Almond and coconut milks are the regulars in our house, as […]
Chocolate ice cream that has only 3 ingredients, no cream and sugar, and the kids still love? It does exist and it’s super easy.
