I wasn’t going to post this recipe, but when my husband declared it “the best soup you’ve ever made,” I changed my mind. I wasn’t going to post because a) most people have already run through their leftover turkey by now and b) who cooks turkey save for Thanksgiving? But, at least around here, a […]

It started with a text from my friend, K, wondering if I would take requests for the blog.  She bought bunches of grassfed ground beef at Whole Foods and needs different ways to use it. “Absolutely,” I told her. So, I set to work on a creamy, mushroomy kind of dish. My intention was to […]

Explore More : June 7th

Sorry about missing out on Explore More last week.  It was the last day of school for my kiddos and madness ensued. Have you read my post about Daphne’s Cafe and Market on Hilton Head Island?  It’s a Paleo / Primal eater’s vacation mecca … homemade bone broth, grassfed cream, and now she is brewing […]

One of the most challenging aspects to my father’s […]

Butternut Apple Soup

I am not one to let summer go without a fight.  I love everything about summer – the humidity, the heat, the pool, the produce.  Oh, how I love the produce.  I tend to overbuy and this summer, that tendency was coupled with some wild pregnancy-related hoarding habits.  Around 35 weeks or so, I had […]
