Welcome Foodies!

Whether it's giving a peek of our family homestead, trying a new restaurant, visiting a local farm or whipping up a new recipe, I'll share the experience here with you. I adore ALL. THINGS. FOOD.

How To Make Your Kid A Foodie

How To Make Your Kid A Foodie

Kids are picky eaters by nature. There’s a science behind why they prefer sweet over bitter; it’s potentially evolutionary. Having said that, I’ve come to realize that my kids aren’t as picky as some other elementary school-ers I’ve gotten to know. Obviously cooking’s a “thing” in our house, and dinners are mostly (but not always) […]

Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Vegan chocolate pudding, reading in about 5 minutes!

One benefit of being a food blogger is getting to know all the other amazing food bloggers on the planet. If you subscribe to my weekly eNewsletter, then you “met” one of my favorites last week: The Wicked Noodle. If you haven’t subscribed to my weekly eNewsletter, DO IT. (Kidding.) (Not really.) So, anyway, Kristy […]

Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes

Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes - they're dairy-free!

This conversation is sponsored by Silk and showcases light and fluffy cinnamon sugar pancakes made with their Silk Cashewmilk instead of dairy. The opinions and text are all mine. We’re intense pancake eaters over here. I make them every weekend, with hopes that I’ll have enough leftover to reheat for busy weekday mornings. It rarely […]

Trapped Without Coffee

Trapped Without Coffee

As a member of From Left to Write, I received a copy of Neil Swidey’s Trapped Under the Sea for review purposes. Neil Swidey’s harrowing true story Trapped Under the Sea tells the tale of brave young divers who have been tasked with a potentially deadly journey. They must travel to the end of an oxygen-starved, super […]

Hearty Chicken and Pinto Bean Soup

Hearty Chicken and Pinto Bean Soup

This hearty chicken and pinto bean soup is the perfect cold weather comfort meal. It warms you to the bone! This past Christmas we decided to cut back on material gifts to our families. I mean, my parents and my in-laws don’t actually need anything, and (in the name of downsizing) prefer not to be […]

MeasuPro Ultra-Fast Cooking Thermometer

MeasuPro Ultra-Fast Cooking Thermometer

MeasuPro sent me an Ultra-Fast Cooking Thermometer to test out and review! I’m a big fan of kitchen gadgets. Just not all kitchen gadgets. If a device or tool is going to serve one purpose, then it has to be a critical one. Like, making sure meat is up to the proper temp before serving […]

Beef Potstickers

Beef Potstickers

Nasoya sent me coupons to try their wraps, which I’m really excited about, because dumplings, wontons, egg rolls, spring rolls, POTSTICKERS. I could eat all of them, all the time, every day. What is it about these Asian finger foods that’s so darn yummy? Potstickers, in particular, are a favorite of mine: one giant bite […]
