Strawberry Coconut Butter


I first discovered coconut butter at my local health food store.  Purchased more out of curiosity than anything, one little bite and I was positively hooked! This Strawberry Coconut Butter came after experimenting with this brilliant Coconut Butter recipe from Lexi’s Kitchen.  Filled with nutrient dense coconut and coconut oil, coconut butter is one of […]

Ingredient-Challenge Monday (one day late): Coconut Curry Vegetables and Beef (Vegan Option Noted)


In addition to the many things I do as a wife, mom, teacher, church-goer, so on and so forth; I recently joined a book club. Reading is my life so gathering together with a great group of women every six weeks or so to discuss a book, enjoy some food and time away from the […]

April Ingredient Challenge Monday Featured Recipe-Pineapple and Cucumber Guacamole from The Taste Space and ICM Challenge Ingredient Announcement!

Unsweetened Vegan Coconut Milk Crockpot Yogurt

Grain-Free Irish Soda Bread, 2-ways


My red hair is generally a dead giveaway to one of the most distinct parts of my family ancestry. While I grew up proud of every part of my rich, mixed family history which includes: American Indian, English, Dutch and (as mentioned before) Irish, the two portions I studied most closely were definitely my American […]
