Fall reading list for small business owners, new moms and pregnant bosses

October 17th, 2017 Posted by Food No Comment yet

I heard the ladies on Girl Next Door podcast talk about how they have a fall curriculum and I loved that idea. I thought it would be fun to do a round up for you of some books that are perfect fall reading material for the small business owner.

Lemon Ginger Switchel

Pregnancy has me eating (and drinking) differently! I discovered a couple new favorite foods that are particularly good for pregnant mamas, or just plain yummy, like the decaf cold brew I whipped up awhile ago, and this lemon ginger drink. 


pregnant friendly coffee drinks

Cold Brew Decaf Coffee with Cinnamon Honey Almond Milk

June 5th, 2017 Posted by Drinks, Non-alchoholic No Comment yet

This is pregnant lady friendly (or just afternoon/had to many coffees already but still want one friendly) and is sooooo good with the almond milk. 

I was at Starbucks the other day and had a cold brew toasted coconut coffee. While it was good, it got me thinking of some other flavors – and the fact that I can make my own cold brew in a decaf form so I can drink more of it! Or at least still have my approved one cup a day AND an afternoon cold brew.

Pinterest and food! We know it’s big right? But this new infographic released yesterday from Pinterest shows some new trends – and new days of high traffic – that are pretty interesting. 


lasagna hacks

Five Lasagna hacks plus the Best Lasagna Ever

May 11th, 2017 Posted by Food No Comment yet

There are things I know, things I can count on. They comfort me in a time when there is a lot of uncertainty (Becoming a mom! Owning a business! Politics!) And while I’ve gotten pretty comfortable with uncertainty, I have a long way to go before The Great Unknown and I are best buds. That’s the catch 22, isn’t it? Nothing in life is certain, but we long for some stability and routine in our lives. When I make this lasagna, I know, I just know that it will be good. I know that it will make a sh*t ton of food, and I know that the results will be well worth the effort.

Here’s a classic that Joel has been making for years! It packs a punch, yet goes down smooth and the real lime juice is a must! Try these drinks with vegan refried black beans and pico de gallo


homemade pizza on a weeknight

Homemade Pizza Night!

March 22nd, 2017 Posted by Bread, Food, Main Dishes No Comment yet

2017 is well on it’s way… how is it the end of March already?! I have landed on my word for the year, and I’m dreaming up all kinds of ways to apply it in my life. My word is G R O W. That’s yours? 

Grow and dough kinda go hand-in-hand. It’s an easy connection, especially when yeast is involved. Watching dough expand in the bowl is fun! Well, I don’t usually sit there and watch it, it’s more like I check up on it occasionally. But just like a little plant in the garden or my young niece, I get excited over growth. I also get excited over pizza.

I love Valentine’s Day! I know it’s over commercialized, but I love finding ways to make it personal to me and Joel, and the other people in my life that I love. I believe it’s always a good thing to celebrate love and to share love with others.


spicy wings with dipping sauce

Spicy Fuego Wings with Lime Cilantro Dipping Sauce

February 3rd, 2017 Posted by Appetizers, Food, Grilling, Meat, Sauces No Comment yet

This post has been YEARS in the making. I made these once about 7 years ago, and they were delicious but suuuuper spicy. Those chipotle chilis in adobo deliver! I always wanted to remake them, but this time I wanted to tame the sauce just a teeny bit. The result was a delicious, sticky, medium heat chicken wing, with the added fun of a dipping sauce.
