Pumpkin Recipe Roundup

Behold the great coveted pumpkin! I swear I’m seeing a boatload of pumpkin recipes going around the world wide web these days.  I have seen them blow up on Facebook and Pinterest, and I don’t normally go crazy for pumpkin, but I recently got on the bandwagon.  Something about pumpkins and fall make me all fuzzy … Continue reading

Having A Home Birth: Sophia’s Birth Story

Hooray!  Here’s to my 100th post and Sophia turning one month old! A month ago today, I held our brand new baby girl in my arms and was in love.  My prayers were answered and I had a successful VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) in the comfort of my own home-think Little House on the Prairie, as my uncle referenced.  The … 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

40 Week Update

40 Week Update

I have hit and officially passed my ‘due’ date on Tuesday, the 24th, and am still going strong.  I feel bad not posting as much as I would like lately, but the end of this pregnancy has been wearing me out.  I still have several posts I want to write about (baby-related), like cloth diapering, elimination communication, home … Continue reading

Portable Paleo Meals: Food On The Go

Portable Paleo Meals: Food On The Go

I figured since today was my birthday (the big 3-3), I’d throw a quick post out about food.  Luckily, I’m not cooking tonight, so I’ll let you do the cooking while I enjoy some gluten-free Asian food from Asian Mint in Dallas. I recently made Mini Meatloaves for the 2nd time, from the Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook, and it … Continue reading

Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation

It’s about to get crunchy up in hur…so bear with me.  Don’t worry, I promise not to show actual pictures. I know you’re probably thinking, ‘Please tell me you’re not about to talk about eating your placenta, are you?’  ‘That’s disgusting!’  I know, I know, I was there just a short while ago, but I have … Continue reading
