‘Tis The Season

60

With 10 days left until Christmas I rounded up 10 things that caught my eye this season. Some tasty, others creative and some ideas that I find special.   There are so many DIY ornaments out there for the holidays, but I've never seen this until now. I love creative ideas that are cheap, and... Read More...

New Year Intentions

coconut oil chocolates

Another year has come and gone. That was quick! Why does it seem as we get older the years go by faster? As for resolutions, I don't make 'em. Resolutions sound very absolute and concrete and in my opinion are too easy to break and fail at. A few years back in a yoga class... Read More...

Happy Holidays 2012

May you have the gift of faith, the blessing of hope, and the peace of Love this season & always. This year I wanted to make a personal ornament for Ralphie to hang on our tree. Ralphie is a toy poodle and when searching for poodle cookie cutters, they are cute but don't look like... Read More...

Winter Solstice

60

Happy winter solstice! It's the shortest day of the year and on top of that we had maybe 5 minutes of sun peak through until the clouds took over. It was a very grey day and with only 3 days left until Christmas I decided it's about time to make the annual Cutout Christmas Cookies.... Read More...

Spiced Lard Cookies

Tallow (beef fat), lard (pork fat) and grass fed butter are healthy traditional fats perfect for meals and all the baking we do during the Holidays. I heard of lard being great for pie crusts, so I was excited to try it out in some baked cookies this week. There are just those times that... Read More...

Childhood Holiday Collections

60

Children by nature live so much more present in the moment, not worrying about the future and unburdened by the past. They maintain this fresh outlook and see special importance in little things. Christmas is a time when I like to reconnect with my childlike spirit and recreate the magical holiday feeling through decorations, music, food... Read More...

After a Thanksgiving turkey meal, many of us find ourselves flooded with leftovers to satisfy us through the rest of the weekend. Day after turkey soup is the perfect way to maximize your leftovers and it provides a lighter option for lunch or dinner. After you carve the turkey, save the carcass for a rich... Read More...

Paleo Thanksgiving Menu

meal

Holidays are commonly characterized by symbols, rituals, music... but most of all, delicious food. Food has a way of bringing people together which is why when on a restricted or specialized diet it can cause feelings of exclusion. That can explain why many people fall off their dietary goals during the holidays. For those with... Read More...

Sparkling Raw Ginger Ale

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Today we roasted a wild turkey, made a bunch of veggies and enjoyed some dessert.  I will share that soon enough but decided to start off with the drink that washed it all down. It's so easy, tasty, and healthy too! Chop up raw organic ginger, pulverize, and pour... Read More...

Every time we carve a pumpkin or make fresh pumpkin puree the seeds are always saved, roasted and seasoned. There are many very innovative and tasty recipes out there when it comes to utilizing your pumpkin seeds. This however is a reminder of my childhood. We've always kept as simple as simple gets -- pumpkin... Read More...

Pumpkin pie is the perfect way to bring in November. Why not do it sugar, dairy and grain free? When or if you taste this version I doubt you will think twice about these missing ingredients. Homemade pumpkin pie made from fresh pumpkins is more work, but well worth the added effort. You get two... Read More...

Everything in October is pumpkins. There are pumpkins all over supermarkets, pumpkin farms, pumpkins decorated and adorning our homes, and pumpkin recipes popping up all over the place. Phew, had enough of it? I'll admit, I enjoy it and every year I get some mini pumpkins to spruce up the room. I can't resist adding... Read More...
