Kittens in the Snow

I’ve never been much of a cat person, but having these two kittens, Poppy and Pebbles, has been so much fun! They’re finally starting to become more adventurous, and will wander from the hoop house to the barn. Sometimes we find them waiting for us on the porch too 😄 Recently they’ve discovered tree climbing, […]

The Beauty of Wintertime

Happy 2022! I’ve only written the date wrong once, which I’d say is pretty good 😄 So far this month has been an odd mix of busyness and relaxation! I posted a little on my Instagram about how I’m trying to lean into the season of rest and relaxation that naturally comes with winter. One […]

Unfortunately, these bread bowls are several weeks old. Just the pictures, of course, the bread bowls were devoured quickly 😄 When it’s cool and […]

For some reason, I had a massive craving for a Little Debbie oatmeal cream pie the other day. I don’t think there’s any way to make them healthy, but I decided that they’d be better homemade than bought from the store 😄 I found the recipe at My Baking Addiction, and in her blog post […]

I’m really excited to share this blog post with you! For the last year or so, I’ve really been diving into not only ways I can incorporate more healthy and homemade foods into our home, but also our food system – which is a huge web of lies. And I’m not talking about conspiracy theories, […]

Sometimes you just need to eat a warm, ooey gooey pretzel that’s been stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough. Thursday was one of those days for me, so I whipped up a batch of these insanely healthy snacks (that is dripping with sarcasm, in case you couldn’t tell). I originally posted this recipe back in 2014, […]

I love homemade bread. It’s so ridiculously easy to make, and a hundred times better than store bought! My mom used to make this recipe all the time when we were growing up, and I have lots of memories of eating a very warm fresh-from-the-oven slice of bread with melted butter on top. I used my […]
