First of all, hello. I’m glad you’re here.
I’m happy you’ve decided to read this. Whether you just read the first few lines or through to the end, my hope is that you find a spark of truth to lift your heavy heart.
The one thing that needs to sink in is this: Your body may have changed, but your value has not decreased.
When I get sad, I get in the kitchen. I pull out the mixer or the food processor or a big old baking dish, and I pull up Pinterest. Because few things in life cheer me up like baking does.
There’s just something therapeutic about taking the cold, smooth eggs, cracking them into a colorful bowl, whisking in flour and leaveners, tasting the batter, adjusting, tasting again…. and tasting one more time just in case it wasn’t really THAT good. Continue reading
If you’re like me, you know you SHOULD be eating more vegetables, but you really don’t want it to feel like punishment. Well hey. it doesn’t have to…. Continue reading
Buttery, fluffy, flavorful…. and 100% Whole Grain.
Of all the things that I’ve missed going gluten free, biscuits have been near the top of the list. There’s something about having that buttery, bready element to go along with your meal that is deeply ingrained in my ideal of good, home cooked food. It probably comes from having several rounds of biscuits with dinner around my Grandparent’s table. Continue reading
Another clean eating challenge? I know right?? Ew. ;)

Being gluten intolerant can be no joke.
If you can tolerate gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye and barley) I’m so happy for you. You’re the person that I see whose eyes light up when someone suggests pizza. Go on, you happy, free little thing. Eat your pizza. I’m actually going to enjoy seeing you enjoy it. Don’t mind if I stare. ;)

What the heck is a legume? ;) Continue reading
Early in December, I was forming my New Years goals in much the same way that I always do. And as usual, it was pretty depressing. Ha! Can you relate? :) Continue reading
I’ve always been a bit of a food nerd.

Because I know we all have this struggle, I’ve decided to share my favorite fast (and still filling and fun) breakfast that will get your day off to a fantastic start. If your New Years Resolution was to eat healthier… this is a great start! Continue reading
