Designing A Healthy Habitat

Hello Friends! I am so excited to have my incredibly talented friend and interior designer, Amanda Stewart, guest post for me here in this space on creating your own healthy habitat. There is never any better time than the present to seize initiative and start projects, but this is even more true now as the…

Gruyere Cheese Grits

Did I have you at Gruyere or Cheese Grits? LOL Cheese grits is a great breakfast recipe to have on hand. Especially as we move into holiday and tailgate season. I always bring this dish to a tailgate or a holiday brunch and it’s allllways gone. This recipe came from my wonderful Mother In Law…

Bell Pepper Sandwich

Aka, the Idiot Sandwich, according to Gordon Ramsay. I don’t know though. He may have mis-judged this one, in terms of its potential. Have you ever had a sandwich made with a bell pepper as the bread? I discovered it when I saw Gordon Ramsay’s hilarious video where he ridicules a woman for making one,…

Bone Broth+

The thing about bone broth… is that there are a lot of things. All of the things in fact. It’s delicious on its own. Ridiculously versatile. Simple to cook, but it has its nuances, which make it a liiiiitle tricky. And it has a whole host of immune boosting, gut healing benefits that I’ll take…

Otto Lenghi’s Genius Squash Recipe

So when I was perusing Food 52 and saw this recipe for Squash With Chile Yogurt & Cilantro Sauce From Yotam Ottolenghi, I had to try it! Plus, it was dubbed “genius” by Kristin Miglore, author of Genius Foods. So I…

Jacobs Well, Wimberly and Lucky Arrow

Congress Bridge Bat Egress

Well I won’t lie, I was not immediately intrigued when a friend mentioned a “Bat Egress” for my next adventure with the kiddos… but boy was I glad I proved myself wrong! Nature just has this way of being magical, majestic and beautiful *always* and especially when and where you least expect it. The bat…

Stonehenge II, Waterslide Dams and Wineries, oh my!

Aka Day 2 of our Fredericksburg/Ingram family getaway. What a whale of a day! Not sure we could have crammed more into it, but it didn’t feel rushed! There was adventure, excitement, ice cream, relaxation, wine, beer, food. All the fun things. One thing I love about about having Littles is that you wake up…

Pizza Ideas

Who doesn’t love a good pizza?! I know I certainly do! That being said, pizza can be a little tough sometimes. I feel like we get pigeon holed into thinking it was something that has to be ordered, and is only good when it’s loaded with tons of cheese, high sugar sauce and sausage. At…
