CSA Saturday 3&4

So I'm one month in  to my CSA program and it has been fun experimenting and using the herbs and veggies in various recipes. Bonus week 3 I got some gorgeous fresh tulips and daffodils that I tromped through the mud and rain to cut myself, worth it! I have a lot of faux flower... Continue Reading →

CSA Saturday 1&2

This year I decided to join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Program. I love eating vegetables but was tired of always finding the same basic staples at the grocery store.

My guilty pleasure are the chips and pico de gallo (they have to be thick cut though). Now I know this is more of an Americanized food, just as... Continue Reading →

When we are sleeping our bodies... Continue Reading →

Clearing The Clutter

A few days ago something really weird happened. I forgot about an appointment I had scheduled AND I forgot to meal prep for one of my clients. Now luckily, I remembered in enough time to complete the meals before heading to bed that night, but the other, totally spaced.  I am not one to put... Continue Reading →

Instant Pot Bone Broth

A few months ago I posted about bone broth and I have since upgraded from Crockpot to InstantPot. Nothing against using a Crockpot to make bone broth but going from 12 hours to 2 hours in the InstantPot is a game changer. I use bones from cooked whole chickens, venison, beef, or lamb, pretty much... Continue Reading →
