patio & dining room before & after

Knowing how much I LOVE seeing inside people’s houses (come on, tell me you don’t try to sneak a peak when you’re out for a walk and it gets dark…) I thought I would share mine with you. I’m pretty crazy about this place, and I’ve been slowly making it feel like home since we…

Natural Food Coloring for Frosting

I can’t believe that Ashley is 10 years old. It seems like a big deal kind of birthday. I remember feeling that way when Zoe turned ten. But Ashley’s birthday has always been a source of dread for me, because she had complications the day she was born, and we didn’t know if she was…

Ice Pops for Kids

ROCKET POPS!!!! These are the kids’ new favorite. I’m beginning to think they will eat anything I freeze in them. These are Carrot Orange, and Green Lemonade. Since taking this photo last week I’ve made them two more times! They love them! Or are the ring pops their favorite?! It’s a toss-up And I have…

Salmon Cakes

Last week was hotter than it’s been, and I try not to use the oven as much when it’s really hot outside. So I made the kids healthy dairy-free ice cream for breakfast every day, with half the dates, and added protein powder. Actually the ice cream for breakfast theme has continued into this week…

Shortbread Gluten-Free Cereal

You may remember the scones I packed last year, on our road-trip to California. I quickly realized that they were great crumbled with almond milk, and that the kids preferred them that way. Just as Zoe loves “mac-n-cheese,” despite the fact that she’s never actually had “the real thing,” my kids are drawn to cereal,…

Our Gluten-Free Getaway in Montreal

Last week Andy and I had a gluten-free getaway to Montreal. We haven’t done something like that, just the two of us, since before Zoe was born (12 years ago)! Andy’s parents live just 2 and a half hours from Montreal on Lake George, New York. So, on Wednesday the 9th we left our girls with their…

Maple Water from DRINKmaple

We don’t post product reviews very often here on the blog, but in this case we think we have something very new and interesting to share: maple water! Last fall the first commercially available maple sap beverages went on the market in Canada. This spring it has been showing up on shelves in the US. Maple water was…

Jalapeno dairy-free Cheese Sauce

It’s funny how recipes happen. Like when I made dairy-free coffee creamer by accident, because I didn’t have a big enough pitcher to hold almond milk. Andy doesn’t go grocery shopping as often as I do, but his week we got an advance copy of Everyday Paleo: Thai Cuisine, which sent him running to the nearest…

The Paleo Kitchen

There is something that I’ve been doing lately that has been blowing my mind. Hear it is. Ready? I’ve been making other peoples recipes. Well, okay, that’s not the part that’s been blowing my mind. What’s blowing my mind is how much faster and easier it is to follow a recipe, as opposed to creating…
