It’s time for some more #trashure fun as I pull out the next subject from my wood haul. Yes, this looks quite dilapidated and a hot mess, but don’t we all look like this from time to time? haha. Thankfully, I’m not a quitter and couldn’t bear to let this poor thing go to the trash. It’s about to become a cute cottage style vintage recipe box. Hang with me…
If you’ve missed my first post about a whole lotta wooden loot I received a few weeks ago, stop over HERE and take a peek. In addition, you can see what I’m referencing below.

My friend, Mandy, knows how much I love to peruse the wooden section of the thrift store for cast-off goodies. She blessed me with
Boy, are you in for a treat! We celebrate birthdays in homemade style around here from their choice of dinner to dessert. One of our most requested treats by my 6 kids are these scrumptious grain-free chocolate cupcakes. The best part is the delectable strawberry frosting made with REAL strawberries! When I recently shared our tasty treat on social media, my inbox got stuffed with recipe requests. So…here it is as promised. We love to share and dare you not to salivate while making these. haha!
And in case you thought your eyes were playing tricks on you, these are in fact grain free – not just gluten free, but grain free. No rice fillers, or
Chocolate. Why is that word one that typically brings a smile to everyone’s face? Because it is DELICIOUS!!! I am not what you would call a chocoholic, but I do love incorporate some in my diet…daily. haha. I’m not talking about the kind that looks like chocolate, but tastes like plastic. I mean the real deal dark goodness that comes from cocoa beans. Have you ever read the story of how it came to be? We’ve studied it in our homeschool studies. So intriguing! Let me share with you this recipe a for tantalizing flourless chocolate fudge cookie. mmm…
If you’ve read any of my past recipes, you know my family and I try to stick to a diet that encourages a healthy gut. You can read more on why and get more recipes HERE. With that we typically eliminate grains from our diet, unless they are processed properly (soaking and sprouting). However, we still have pizza
Who here loves a savory side dish? ME! Nothing better than having the right compliment to your meal or one that doubles as an anytime snack. I am a serious potato lover, but no so much a lover of all the starchy sugars that come with it. tsk. Don’t get me wrong, potatoes have a place for potassium, but I like to take a break from the staple to nourish my body in other ways. Today, I’m sharing one of our favorite recipes: Potatoless Twice Baked Potatoes (aka. savory cauliflower bake).
Before you run off screaming, “You can’t take away my potatoes!!” hear me out. I’m not saying
There is nothing better in the summer & fall evenings that a fun time with family around a fire pit roasting marshmallows. Though, I’ll admit, those store-bought styrofoam balls called marshmallows are not pleasing to me. To enjoy the tasty toasted treat without the guilt or nasties, I’m sharing these homemade marshmallow s’mores with you based on your popular request.
All it takes is five simple ingredients to get these yummies ready to go.
Do you ever grab a quick breakfast only to find yourself hungry within 30 minutes? Today, by popular request, I’m sharing one of my family’s favorite breakfast dishes – a grain-free Dutch baby. What is a Dutch baby? It’s basically an oven pancake that can be tweaked to suit your taste buds and nutritional needs.
My version has a hearty take to it from the fluffy version, though it can be made that way too. I remember back as a young teen getting bored with my packet of oatmeal or cereal and decided to search the cookbook for something new for breakfast. My first attempt came out wonderfully lofty, but had my dad asking, “What is that??” Haha… He asked only because while baking they tend to
Nothing is better than the smell of fresh baked bread. It evokes memories of good times and family, and even gives us a sense of home. Most would say it is too hard to bake your own bread. tsk. I am here today to share a recipe that is the easiest, tastiest, wholesome bread I have found. I wish I could say this no-knead wheat bread recipe was my own, but instead it has been handed down to me from my bestie, Connie. It has easily become our family favorite.
Truth be told that we don’t really consume grains in our home. As I have mentioned in past posts, we try to adhere to a gut-friendly diet. However, we do also know that if prepared properly, grains can be
Isn’t it funny how we change? As a kid I thought it despicable to mix things together. My food had to be separated on my plate and not touching each other. Oh, did I miss out or what?! Things like submarine sandwiches and salsa grossed me out (yes, I’m dating myself, I know). Now, I am an avid foodie that finds pure joy in creating and mixing food together (see RECIPES). Grab your garden goodies and lets get our food groove on for this garden salsa.

This is the time of year for me when my garden is bursting out all over and can be slightly overwhelming. I gathered this in 5 minutes of one day, so you can see I am absolutely blessed.
While I love to process my tomatoes into juice and sauce with my
Eating fresh from the garden is the ultimate treat in the summertime, isn’t it? You can’t beat the flavor or the nourishing elements in food grown and prepared properly. Last month I shared with you one of our family favorite recipes, cabbage skillet pizza. At that time, I made a promised to do the same for each month we encounter as we continue on our grain-free journey. How does a roasted stone fruit dessert sound? Let me tell ya, you may be kissing that junky s’more goodbye!

It is a simple to prepare and even can be made in advance for the family camping trip. It’s also versatile so that you can please every member of your family with their favorite stone fruit (peach, apricot, plum, cherries).
Half of the fun of making s’mores is the roasting, and this sweet treat is just as fun! (psst…mom will feel better that there’s no sugar-high too.)
