In the weeks leading up to Christmas, I hunted and hunted for a casserole to serve Christmas morning. I like to offer up something protein-rich and savory along with a touch of something sweet. But, in years’ past, I’ve found the GF, DF casserole recipes to either be lackluster or chock with nightshades. This year, […]

I was stumped. It’s not a cobbler, a buckle, a betty or a crisp. It’s not a pie or a pudding. It’s cake-ish but not really cake-like. I didn’t know what to call it. So, as I opened up WordPress to blog the recipe, I asked my seven-year old, who raved about the dessert last […]

Fig Envy

I am a fiend for figs. My grandmother’s yard in Texas is full of fig bushes and trees and, when I would go there in the summer, I spent as much time as I could harvesting the little delights. My Granny and I would pop a few in our mouths, freeze some, and roast others. […]

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned a delish smoothie that I made to pump some Vitamin C into the kiddos. It started with navel oranges and the Vitamix. Before I offer up the smoothie recipe, though, I’d like to toss another really remarkable navel orange-based recipe your way.  It’s not mine.  It’s James Beard’s. (Yes, THAT […]

Since Little A is STILL. NOT. SLEEPING. (Pause for a long, deep sigh.) my hubby is the one who preps breakfast for the bigs on most days. But, this Saturday, he crawled into bed after one in the morning following a very long day of work.  So, despite a crazy night of not-sleeping, I was […]

Let’s start out with some of the realities about health and wellness journalism.  And for that, I point you to Katy Bowman’s Expert Ankles piece.  Now, from time to time, I have been known to remind my class members that just because they see a picture of a movement in a health or fitness mag, […]

My husband got a Big Green Egg for his *ahem* 40th birthday that has not yet happened but the BGEs were on sale so we snagged one.  I’ve been all over that bad boy since we got it.  Check out this lovely smoked chicken. But here’s my question for you BGErs: What’s the best way […]

Explore More : July 5th

Hope you had a great Fourth of July!  In Atlanta we endured downpour after downpour.  Our P.M. plans were scuttled when the City of Decatur postponed it’s Pied Piper parade, Concert on the Square and fireworks show to September 28th which will be our “Faux Fourth.”  We did manage to fit in a neighborhood parade […]

Magnesium.  It’s a tough mineral to get from food and it’s really, really important. According to Chris Kresser: There are few compounds in the body more important to overall health than magnesium. Over 300 enzymes need it, including every enzyme associated with ATP, and enzymes required to synthesize DNA, RNA and proteins. Magnesium also plays […]
