Explore More : May 23rd

Although most area schools release for the year this week, we’ve still got one more week to go. Well, we have Monday off for Memorial Day. So, Maysanity continues, although with baseball and dance done, things have calmed a bit. You know what calms me down? Watering my little garden. I think I’ve mentioned, we […]

Explore More : April 18th

I know it’s been a few weeks since I’ve gotten an Explore More out there. Apologies, but I tried to minimize my exposure to screens while on Spring Break with the kiddos. Consequently, I have lots of stuff for you this week, so let’s dive on in. Before we head into the content, though, I […]

Celeriac Rounds

If you were to ask me what I found most challenging about feeding my family on a Paleo/Primal template, I would say two words: starchy carbs. A common Paleo/Primal “pitfall” is to accidentally go too low carb. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo wrote a nice, quick Facebook post on the topic you […]

This week’s art installment comes courtesy of my five-year old, M. These are my kind of snowflakes because I can enjoy without any of the side effects that cold weather brings. Surely I am not the only one feeling like she needs to unfurl her body after cold, icy, snowy, or illness-filled days? My friends in […]

There is an Amazon affiliate link in here. It’s for my book and the FTC requires that I disclose it but it does make me laugh when it’s my book because I assume you know that I benefit when you buy my book. But, anyhow, there it is. Your full disclosure. And, I thank you […]

I am sick, exhausted, and have laid eyes on my husband for probably four minutes thus far this week, so today’s post is going to be short.  But, I’ve been awful about my Friday posts this (crazy, crazy) month, so I don’t want to miss.   Speaking of missing things, I hope you didn’t miss […]

Lemon Parsley Chicken

Of all the proteins I serve them, my kids enjoy chicken the least. My go-to quick meal often involves a rotisserie chicken from Whole Foods and the kids usually gripe and complain about it.  Same with my whole smoked chickens and baked chicken parts (which, incidentally are basted in duck fat* and I happen to think […]

My friend K put in a request for ground beef recipes, which has proven more challenging than one might imagine. The big problem is that I can’t eat nightshades and many of the best uses for ground beef demand nightshades – Italian recipes, chili, even the picadillo I wanted to re-create. The other problem is […]

When I am pressed for time and need a simple supper for my crew, I almost always make a frittata. Last weekend, we spent Sunday afternoon at a darling pumpkin patch that is 100% full of Southern kitsch.  We shot corn cobs from pneumatic guns, watched pig races, rode a cow tractor, and more.  We […]
