Honey roasted walnuts: give the gift of food this year!

December 12th, 2017 Posted by Food No Comment yet

I believe that the best gifts during the holidays have to do with food. Ideally, it’s something you can eat. I think this started when I had zero money and wanted to give something to each member of my (large) family. If you want to spread a little holiday cheer, it just takes some butter, sugar and flour. Or in this case – honey roasted walnuts.

Are you ready? Thanksgiving is coming…. do those words make you excited or stressed? I love Thanksgiving, but it is a TON of work. There is also a lot of pressure for this holiday to be spot on with the food, amiright? You could mess up Easter dinner, or a labor day cook out, and no one would really care. But  if you mess up Thanksgiving, it feels like you are messing up big. I don’t know, maybe no one does really care (I mean, if they did, they could always go out and buy their own turkey and make it the next day, right?) so maybe all this pressure is just self inflicted.

Podcasts. I’m a huge fan and listen to them as often as I can (folding laundry, driving, getting ready in the morning)… and they are what I would consider to be the fastest growing form of media for bloggers, writers and entrepreneurs. Are you thinking about starting one yourself, but wondering if you can do it? Let me share my podcasting story with you.

My first thought this morning at 5am after waking up with Libby was “oh crap I’m out of cloth diapers”. Quickly followed by, ugh I really need to get some quotes from local accountants. And then I need to pay that bill…. but first coffee

We’ve been having quite a few overnight house guests lately, with moving to Central Oregon, a few hours away from my family, and then with having a baby, there are plenty of reasons for folks to come our way and stay awhile. One of my favorite things about overnighters is making a big breakfast in the morning. I just love making breakfasts!

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.

 “Work with all your heart, because-I promise-if you show up for your work day after day after day after day, you just might get lucky enough some random morning to burst right into bloom.” 

Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic

I’m on maternity leave right now, and it’s been a rare break in my entrepreneurial career. Never have I taken this much time off before, and it feels needed, indulgent, and a little scary. I find myself with anxious thoughts like: Will my clients be there when I return? Will I have time to work with a newborn? What if it just all goes to hell in a hand basket?

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.
