2014 Crunchy Holiday Gift Guide

Who’s ready for the holidays and looking for some alternative gift ideas? I wanted to do one of these gift guides last year, but with a two month old, I didn’t quite get around to it.  One good thing about waiting is that I now have more ‘crunchy’ items to add to this year’s list…especially … Continue reading

Camping With A Crunchy Mama

Camping With A Crunchy Mama

My family has created a new tradition when it comes to Memorial Day…camping.  I never really grew up camping very much, or at all, so I jumped at the opportunity when my parents found a place 2o minutes away from them.  It’s a private campground in Fentress, Texas, and this was our second year to … Continue reading

Make Your Own Broth (Beef, Chicken, & Vegetable)

Make Your Own Broth (Beef, Chicken, & Vegetable)

I’ve been on this kick lately, especially since reading Primal Moms Look Good Naked, with making my own broth.  I would occasionally buy beef bones or hold on to the chicken carcass when I could remember, but now I have no excuse.  If you saw in an earlier post, we have half of a grass-fed cow in our freezer that we split with … Continue reading
