coconut curry chicken with udon noodles and broccoli

IMG_8921

There are some flavor profiles I just love… like anything with peanut sauce is a win.  Obviously.  Coconut curry sauce is another one.  There’s something about the refreshing coconut milk paired with spiced up curry that mixes perfectly.  You can make curry hot, or keep it mild.  I tend to keep it milder for my […]

healthy peanut butter banana soft serve

IMG_5154-1024x768

It’s been an oddly hot summer here in Washington.  Although we have 90 degrees predicted for this weekend, fall is definitely in the air.  I can start to feel a change in season.   I want to do yard work again, yay!  While browsing through some pictures from a few months ago I came across our […]

peanut butter, raisin and bean snacker cookies

We all have rough days. Hunter recently had one (lots of tears throughout the day + waking up really sad from his nap). I find that there’s normally a reason for these rougher days: poor night sleep or nap, not eating well or a tooth bothering him are the usual culprits. On that particular day, […]

my favorite chickpea veggie burger recipe

If you follow me on Instragram, you’ve seen me post these yummy veggie burgers a few times now. I’ve eaten my fair share of them without any photographic proof too.  They are just so good!  Back in January I made a big double batch for the freezer, for when baby arrives.  I knew Jacob wouldn’t […]

homemade crockpot yogurt

Over the weekend I attempted some new and quite amazing…. Making yogurt in the crockpot!  I’ve never made yogurt before so I was a bit nervous.  Not wanting to waste half a gallon of milk was my main concern. Not that I would cry over spilled milk… You see, the reason I set out to […]

banana custard oats how-to

I had a realization.  I talk about my favorite banana custard oats breakfast all the time, yet it’s not here to link to.  The horror!  Truth is, I’ve been having a tough time sharing breakfast recipes, mainly because it’s still super dark outside when I’m making and eating it in those wee early morning hours.  […]

apple pie wonton turnovers

Hello!  How was your weekend?  We had a pretty mellow one here, which was perfect right before all the crazy busy holiday activities begin.  The weather was a bit chilly and wet, but that didn’t stop Hunter and I from having some fun at the park one morning. Yes, that’s a wet backside.  The slide […]

peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough bites (aka chickpea cookies)

During those first couple days of potty training I planned for us to stay home.  We barely even went outside, except for a couple trips to the front yard for some fresh air.  I wanted to plan some special activities to take advantage of our home time. Of course, we read hundreds of books.  Books […]

crockpot chicken noodle and kale soup

Good morning!  How was your weekend?  We had a pretty relaxed one up at the lake house.  Lots of beautiful sunshine.  This little guy loved running around in it.  Rocks in hand, of course. For October the weather has been beautiful.  Not typical, but I’ll take it!  This week I’m making a couple meals in […]
