Homemade Marshmallows.

Every time my children ask for hot cocoa they MUST have their Marshmallows too… except my 100% organic, no refined sugar or corn syrup brain secretly despises purchasing them. Thanks to Danielle Walker of Against All Grain, Celebrations- we now have a Paleo/healthy version of these delectable puff balls. I’m sharing her recipe because #1… its awesome and #2… because I want my children to have a book of our favorite family recipes when they grow older, and this blog is a perfect way of keeping them all in one place. So without further ado, here’s our new favorite Marshmallow recipe.…

Almond Butter Buckeyes.

Tis the season for warm beverages + satisfying treats. Although I try to keep my Holiday indulgences to a minimum, these are still a traditional staple… not to mention they’re gluten free + delicious.

In a bowl, mix almond butter, maple syrup, coconut flour, arrowroot powder, and vanilla extract. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then using a spoon, create 1 inch round…

Roasted Cinnamon + Honey Pear Slices.

We purchased some really beautiful + delicious looking pears at our local supermarket a week ago, and of course they were on their last leg by the time I remembered them in our produce basket. Not the right texture to eat fresh, I scoured around for a seasonal pear recipe. We changed up the suggested cooking time, because my kiddos love dehydrated foods vs. chips… so we made “slices” instead. Having a reason to fire the oven on a 5°F day made the process of this recipe extra special. Not to mention our home smelled amazing (once again) thanks to an…

Zucchini Yogurt Multigrain Muffins.

Fall is quickly approaching in our neck of the woods. It almost seems as soon as the time hits September 1st, the weather follows suit. Colder nights, crisper mornings, and the occasional frost making its appearance in the forecast. Of course this triggers all the feelings for my favorite season, and the autumn (attempt at) baking that comes with. Yesterday while the girls were napping I made these delicious Zucchini Yogurt Multigrain Muffins. Anyone who knows me knows baking isn’t my strong suit, but these muffins are literally no-fail. Not to mention they include wholesome ingredients, and no refined sugar!…

Summertime Sangria | a recipe.

When the air gets hot, and life gets filled with all sorts of summer activities – Ryan and I turn to enjoying our evening adult beverage. I’ve toyed with mixing Watermelon Vodka with Passion fruit LaCroix + a fresh smashed mint leaf… which has become a new favorite- but every now and then it’s nice to mix it up. Ry and I are your novice, to average, red wine connoisseurs. We know the basics, but mostly we just try different bottles until we find a favorite. Tonight we decided fresh fruit + a little extra kick was in order, so Sangria it is! We started by adding a bottle of red…
