One of my favorite parts about spring is the whole brunch idea! You can enjoy brunch any time of year, but spring seems to be a popular time for brunch. I just think of going to church on Easter Sunday and then coming home and enjoying brunch with a mimosa. Or Christmas Day, because we eat cookies early in the morning so the hearty brunch follows later. Even if it’s just your average Sunday, brunch is always a good idea. Your whole family will love this brunch menu![Read more…] about Brunch Menu for the Whole Family
There is always that one night per week that I want to put something really easy in the oven so that I can walk away, come back and it’ll be ready to eat. That meal for us is this roasted chicken dinner. I actually look forward to the day each week that I get to make this roasted chicken. The only reason I think that we don’t make it more often is just so that we don’t get tired of it. I would totally make this every day if I could! Over the years I’ve gone from making just a simple roasted chicken to making a whole chicken dinner in the same pan. I’m sure you and your family will enjoy this roasted chicken recipe for years to come.[Read more…] about How to Make One-Pot Roasted Chicken Dinner

This instant pot sausage soup is hearty, healthy, and perfect for the winter months. I love using homemade bone broth in this recipe, but if you have store bought bone broth that works too. Pick out your favorite sausage for this recipe. I had just been to the local butcher shop in our area and got some nice Italian ground sausage, but just about any sausage will do. What I love about this recipe is that it makes good use out of the instant pot. You can leave the instant pot on all afternoon and have dinner ready when you get home!
The thing about this recipe is this – good food doesn’t have to be complicated. You can follow this recipe if you want, but the basics of this soup are quite simple. Good sausage, beans, kale, and tomatoes, mixed with a hearty bone broth, and you can’t go wrong. Add extra onion if you’re an onion fan, or extra garlic if you love your garlic like we do.[Read more…] about Instant Pot Sausage Soup with Bone Broth
It’s pie season! We are making breakfast pumpkin pie, sweetened only with coconut milk and spices, that is so healthy it can be made for breakfast, lunch, or a snack. What I love about this recipe is that is uses a real pumpkin, so it’s more like a pumpkin meal than a dessert pie. And pumpkin is so good for you too! This no sugar added pumpkin pie is fun to make and is one of the best ways to go farm-to-table this year. Don’t forget pumpkins are in season for a long time, so enjoy this dish well into the holidays!
Have you ever started to make something and then realized part way through that you’re missing one, two, or more of the ingredients? That ALWAYS happens to me. But I’ve actually realized that that is how the best recipes are born. When you don’t have the right flour, or enough eggs, or you want to sub out the sugared syrup. In walks this healthy breakfast pumpkin pie!
Recently we have been doing everything in our control to eliminate canned goods, processed sugars, and anything involving plastic or artificial ingredients. This isn’t always possible, and it takes time to do completely, but you’ve got to start somewhere. When I started making pies like this one, I realized that you can make a sugar-free BPA-free and totally farm-to-table dessert item – and have it be even better than the original!
In this blog post I share how to cut, gut, and roast a pumpkin, how to make a pie crust from scratch, and how to make this delicious breakfast pumpkin pie. I also made video tutorial and a printable recipe card. Enjoy![Read more…] about How to Make Breakfast Pumpkin Pie Naturally Sweetened

Ratatouille is already very healthy for you with so many vegetables in one dish. This recipe also uses no salt, and each vegetable is cooked on its own to get the best nutrient and flavor before combining them all into the pot. I actually learned how to make this dish from an authentic French chef, and she gave me some great tips that I will share!
We love to cook with whatever vegetables are in season. If you have access to fresh zucchini, eggplant, peppers, or tomatoes, use those for the best and fullest flavor. If not, you can just grab some organic veggies from your local grocery store. I’ve done this recipe with vegetables that are in and out of season, and it always turns out great![Read more…] about Healthy Ratatouille
