Summer Break

Summer Break

In my on going effort to find balance {or at least the ability to juggle more gracefully}, I’ve decided to take the summer off from the blog. I’ll still be posting on Instagram {and sharing some of those posts on Facebook, while I’m at it} and of course I’ll continue to organize and be the point person for the Autoimmune… Read more →

Salmon Apple Salad

Salmon Apple Salad

I’ll let you in on a little secret. Fish salad is my method of sneaking avocado on Luv’s plate. She isn’t fond of avocado on its own. While we don’t force the kids to eat foods, we do encourage them to try a few bites of what they’re served. And if that doesn’t work, I try making that food a… Read more →

Lemon Ginger Avo Mayo

Lemon Ginger Avo Mayo

This has become my favorite faux mayo to make. You can make it as thick {for a fish salad} or as thin {for a dressing} as you want by controlling how much oil you stream into the mixture. Fresh lemony citrus livens up creamy avocado while ginger lends a bit of spice and fragrance, making for a delicious and versatile… Read more →

Pen Pal Tips

I had a pen pal when I was in elementary school. I think it was a program set up through the library, or I stumbled upon it in the back of a magazine. Highlights, perhaps? Regardless, I remember that thrill of getting mail addressed to ME. Being the youngest of four girls, it wasn’t often I got anything in the… Read more →

Explore Wenatchee Renaissance Faire

Explore: Wenatchee Renaissance Faire

I don’t think we will ever truly be done exploring this place. And I prefer it that way. I’ve lived in Washington my entire life and have only seen a small percentage of everything this beautiful state has to offer. A festival was looming. Unbeknownst to us, a rather large festival overtakes this place we call home. People come here… Read more →

There are those gems in the world. I like to believe they’re not as rare as most people think. They care unconditionally, smile contagiously, keep it real, and give freely. Unbridled through and through. If you have a friend like that, hold on to that friendship like your life depends on it. Because it kind of does.

Perks to Having a Pen Pal

I’ve always been a fan of handwritten letters and notes, but more recently I started corresponding on a fairly regular basis with a good friend of mine. Sure, we still chat on FaceTime, share witty gems over Instagram, and we text. But even those tech-y outlets cannot hold a flame to the allure of snail mail. It’s no wonder pen… Read more →

Sweet Potato & Mango Salad

AIP Sweet Potato and Mango Salad

It had been a few years since I made this salad. But it all came rushing back to me when I was taking stock of what ingredients I had and sifted through the possibilities. Sweet potatoes, onions, mangos, cilantro, avocado… Wait. What was that sweet potato salad I’ve made before? I threw what combinations I could remember together for breakfast… Read more →

Do Guild Wars characters know they are IN Guild Wars?

Vanilla Salt

Vanilla Salt

This Vanilla Salt is sure to be ridic-delish used on roasted fruits, caramel, used when making baked treats, homemade marshmallows or chocolates. Ooh, quite possibly even meats. I’m definitely going to try that as soon as my current batch is ready! Read more →
