Pears, pears, everywhere… As you may know, we were able to pick a lot of pears. And now comes the hard work of preserving them all! With so many pears, it was a struggle for me to narrow down how I want to preserve them all. There are so many options! My first thought was to make pear sauce, but…that… Keep Reading
Step aside pumpkin pie… Pumpkin butter is here. You MUST try this. The end. Just kidding! But seriously though, have you ever tried pumpkin butter before? I’ll be honest, before last year I had never heard of it. Which is just a terrible travesty. Because pumpkin butter is simply autumn in a jar straight from heaven. Not even exaggerating.
I have a new love! Making homemade gummies! The sky is the limit when it comes to the flavor combinations here. My kids love them. And I don’t have to feel that internal conflict about my kids eating junk or feeling deprived. I really hate “fruit snacks”. Truly. I think it’s one of the biggest cons in the grocery store….

I don’t believe in secret recipes. You’re welcome. Because this is the best banana bread ever, and it should probably be a secret. But I’m handing the recipe over to you on the world wide web. Does it feel like Christmas morning?! It totally should, because this is that good!
Let’s get fancy today! We don’t go out to eat very often. There are two reasons for this, it’s expensive and it’s far away. We live at least 30 minutes away from town with it’s many restaurants. And to be honest, when you make a shift in the way you eat, towards more whole and traditional foods…restaurant’s just don’t taste… Keep Reading

Welcome to week two of my Preserving Pears series. If you missed last week’s Pear Butter recipe, make sure you go check it out! It’s easy and delicious! With 30lbs of pears to process, I knew I wanted to do more then one thing with them. One of the easiest things in the world is to dehydrate fresh produce. You… Keep Reading
I don’t know about you guys, but it’s been pretty hot around here! Being a native Floridian, it doesn’t actually bother me that much, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy some fun ways to stay cool. The sprinkler has been working a lot in the back yard to keep my kiddos cool and we’ve been making popsicles and lots… Keep Reading
Confession. I neglected my sourdough starter…so while I’m starting over with a fresh batch of sourdough starter, I’m using this good ol’ standby bread recipe. I love this recipe. It’s easy, it’s fast, and it’s forgiving. Perfect set of qualities in a bread recipe, am I right? Oh, and let’s not forget that it’s delicious. I have a hard time… Keep Reading
I don’t know about you’re kids, but mine can devour anything banana. Straight up bananas, banana bread, chocolate banana muffins, chocolate covered frozen bananas, and banana chips. I love the banana chip option because it stores longer than fresh bananas. And so when our grocery store had some over-ripe bananas on a deep discount, I grabbed some to try making… Keep Reading
