Turning unusable space on the side of our house in a flourishing garden! Easy, cheap and delicious!
Caramel Apple Cider made easy at home! It's so simple, I will never pay the outrageous coffee shop prices again!
We attempted a no waste Halloween! The main part of the pumpkin is of course used as the Halloween jack-O-lantern. The carved out chunks that make the faces were happily gobbled up by our dogs as an afternoon treat. The inside pumpkin leftovers were up to me!
Every year I try some new way of making pumpkin seeds. I like to experiment with different flavors and prep methods but I have always baked them in the oven. Each time they turn out fine but nothing amazing enough to write about... Until this year!
How does the food we eat effect our happiness? On the surface, the food we eat can physically make us feel good or gross, but I have found there is more of a link to happiness through food than just how our stomach takes it. The food we choose has a huge emotional impact. Food can be nostalgic or comforting. We view some food as a reward or a guilty pleasure. Craving “junk” can make us feel ashamed or deprived. Trying something new can make us feel adventurous. Food can be beautiful and sensuous, and artistic! Food can give us energy to live life! Food can even cure illnesses!
Here are the freezer meals I prepared before my daughter was born! It was so convenient to not have to worry about all that goes into creating a meal or running to the store for missing ingredients while trying to figure out this new tiny human I had just brought into the world.
These enchiladas are one of my all time favorite meals! They create an explosion of flavor with each bite! I am proud to say this recipe was created by my husband. I hope you and yours can get as much enjoyment out of it as we do!
