Confession: I’m a leaner. Brady says I physically can’t take a picture without leaning=) So true. Now I’m trying to take that posture into the rest of my world…
So how about you? How do you extend grace? To yourself? To others?
Show up anyway; no plan needed. Simply come to the table.
I was recently able to bring sweet potatoes back into my diet. This isn’t really a recipe as much as encouragement to bless yourself with some sweet potato chips and yummy chimichurri dipping sauce.
My top 5 kitchen tools are...
I truly believe we encourage each other the most when we are authentically ourselves and simply show up. Nothing more, nothing less.
Roasting veggies, hands down, are my favorite way to eat them. ALL of them. I was tossing these green beans in some coconut oil before they went in the oven and I was struck with their beautiful green color.
Hi there! So this will be my first completely transparent post. A new uncharted ground for me but one I know I need to stand on; journey on. Anyone that knows me, knows I love the table. I love what it represents. I love to gather people around it. To ‘break bread’ together is truly sacred and is one of my greatest treasures. So I’m about to ramble on about my health journey but if you want the cliffsnotes version, it’s this dear one: we ALL have our quirkiness, you are not alone, you are invited, wanted and accepted at the table; no matter what. Just show up.
ALWAYS make extra because leftovers are yet another gift!
This comforting winter soup is a recipe I adapted from my sister with the ingredients I had on-hand. I love it!
We had supper club at my friend Jaime’s last week and she made this amazing soup. It makes a huge batch so I halved the recipe to work with what I had on hand when recreating it. I know saffron is a pricey spice but it completely makes this soup sing! Each step adds layers of flavor; stick with the process and you’ll be blessed.
This cauliflower dish is such a change up from traditional mashed cauliflower. The sage and rosemary make it taste like Thanksgiving or Christmas in a bowl. I can’t get enough of it. And I know I’m talking about cauliflower! Such a gift!
Give yourself...grace, time, opportunities to swim, do-overs, the glad game...
An easy go-to recipe anytime you have some overly ripe bananas to use...And you want your house to smell amazing...And you want your tummy oh-so-happy!
Be it a relationship, a new learned skill or a new way of thinking, whatever it is, let’s treat it with intentionality to help it thrive. Maybe it’s not something new; it’s just something that has grown a little stagnant and needs some attention. As my wise, dear friend says, “Needs change over time.” Agreed. So let’s identify areas for growth and get back to life-breathing fundamentals. And enjoy the process.
This recipe is such a blessing with some awesomely tasty ingredients including pepperonis, avocado and crushed pork rinds; stick with it! So full of flavor, I made it this past weekend and it was beyond good; I’ve already made another batch.
May we genuinely share whatever knack or gift we have. As Shauna Niequist put it, “What God gave you is not for you; it’s for the world.”
With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s so great to have some treats on hand to share and these nuts...awww...super for snackin’, great mix-in for a yogurt parfait or smoothie and perfect for that ‘not-too-sweet’ sweet tooth after dinner with coffee. Love. And a bonus for these nuts is that they’re super quick to throw together since it’s all on the stovetop. It’s almost not a recipe and more of a love for sharing a wonderful toasted cinnamon aroma throughout your house. I’m getting excited over the cooler days and these warm cinnamon-maple nuts add to the blessings.
Whether its an over-packed action list or over-run emotions, sometimes the best thing we can do is slow down. Even if it’s only a few tiny minutes, make the most of them by being fully present. Maybe we only get two things done out of our list of 10. That’s okay. Those two things will make us stronger. Allow us to really listen. Breathe.
