Homemade applesauce is stupid easy. I mean, seriously. I know, I know. You hear that a lot on the internet or see it on Pinterest or whatever and you’re like, yeah, right… But, really. Homemade applesauce is like, the easiest thing to make. I used to make it all the time when the girls were […]
Tortilla soup is one of those Tex-Mex favorites that I’ve always wanted to love. I mean, how can you go wrong with a soup topped with avocado and pico de gallo? But, alas, I don’t really dig chicken and it’s almost always a chicken soup. So, I crafted this easy peasy Black Bean Tortilla Soup […]
One of the few meaty Chinese dishes I’ve tried at restaurants and really liked is Mongolian Beef. But I always add veggies to it because it’s so boring otherwise. Making at home means I can add whatever veggies I want so I tracked down a recipe and tinkered with it to make it in my […]
We love soup, but our food intolerances and dislikes have made most soups difficult to share. This old fashioned paleo chicken noodle soup recipe is delicious. I didn’t used to like the actual chicken part of the soup, but it’s grown on me. If you’re gluten-free, you can use rice noodles. Skip the noodles […]
Thanksgiving is still not over in our house. You see, when you buy a 9-pound (smallest we could find) organic, grass-fed turkey for a group of six people who don’t like turkey much, you have leftovers. Lots of leftovers. So, I preplanned. I stripped the turkey as soon as we were done, tossed the bones […]
Why? You might ask, would I tinker with one of our family favorite recipes and one of my post popular posts and remake our delicious, delicious Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup recipe? Well, it’s simple. I fell in love. I fell in love with my VitaClay. Today I have a fresh pot of Homemade Yogurt […]

Don’t worry, we didn’t kick the girls, Bug (4) and Goose (3) out of the house. We still have four members to our family. But when I got Kathy Hester’s yummy new cookbook in the mail, Vegan Slow Cooking for Two, I made a realization that I probably should’ve made a long time ago. Cooking for two is kind of awesome when you’re cooking for a blended-eater family. I’m mostly vegetarian (experimenting with pescatarianism due to health issues), my husband Mr. Meaty is an omnivore and our girls are undecided.
The dessert that captures our hearts is called Pulut Hitam, a Malaysian sticky black rice pudding with coconut milk. And black rice has so many nutritional benefits.
My girls love helping in the kitchen. Unfortunately, not every recipe is conducive to their particular brand of “help.” Sometimes the help is more of a hindrance, sure, but it’s always an adventure. But my thrift store find, the Fix-It and Forget-It Kids’ Cookbook, makes the adventures simple and slightly less messy. I adapted the Super […]
