Italian Pot Roast Stew

I had been so busy with starting this hard kombucha company that my adventures in the kitchen had dwindled to be completely honest. I felt so out of balance due to the fact that I hadn’t been cooking new recipes as much as I normally do. My meals became quick and easy yet lacked any…

On Funerals and Family

You get the call, text, notification of some sort that someone you love is no longer with us on this earth. Everything is put on hold in that moment.

Sweet Potato, Sausage, Egg Scrambler with Chili Powder

Did you know that if you store peeled and cut sweet potatoes in a glass of water in the fridge, it will keep them fresh? Neither did I until the other day. Now that I don’t have to go through the hassle of prepping the sweet potatoes, it makes adding them to my breakfast much…

Turkey Burgers

We made these turkey burgers during our Nourish in Nature retreat in Arizona. They were such a hit and most of the participants favorite dish. Easy dinners are so important in my routine because I get home from work so late. It’s nice to have something you can whip up just with the strike of…

Spiced Nuts

Nuts are such a simple thing to snack on throughout the week. It’s one of my go-to snacks like hummus or energy balls. They’re kind of boring by themselves so I try to switch up the flavor when I season them up. You can put whatever spice or herb you want on the nut mixture….

Seared Scallops and Ground Cherries on Quinoa

I just discovered ground cherries a couple years ago and they are one of the most exquisite fruits these taste buds have tossed around. Imagine a tropical tomato as you take a mouthwatering bite. The first time I had a ground cherry was from Jerry at Froggy Meadow Farms. He likes to sell really weird…

60 Years of Marriage

What were you doing in 1958? Most of you probably weren’t even alive. I wasn’t even a thought back then but I do have two lovely people to thank for my existence. My grandparents just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Holy cow! 60 years is more than half a century! What a beautiful commitment? My…
