ITALIAN WEDDING SOUP

PALEO {INSTANT POT} ITALIAN WEDDING SOUP

I shoveled snow today and didn't have a heart attack.  Small victories are big ones sometimes. Like a Texan surviving single digits. It's exciting and depressing all at the same time. Know what else happened today? Unicorn vomit. That's my nice way of saying, "My 4 year old dumped out millions of sequins onto the rug." Was it sparkly and beautiful? Yes, to a 4 year old who dumped them. Between … [Read More...]

SWEET POTATO + BACON WAFFLE

Bacon + Sweet Potato Waffle

This recipe literally happened because I had a sweet potato in the kitchen window, a pack of pastured bacon in the fridge, and a spark of an idea from my newsfeed. I had been seeing a few waffles as I scrolled through FB, where I spend far too much time, and the waffles were talking…

Why I uit Dairy

WHY I QUIT DAIRY + CAN’T EVER GO BACK!

I come from a dairy loving family to say the least. We followed “doctor’s orders” and had a glass of milk on the dinner table every night growing up.  To this day my dad still drinks at least a glass a night of skim milk because “it’s the best choice.” It’s not even an argument…
