Pumpkin Cheesecake {Dairy-Free, Paleo}

Pumpkin Cheesecake {Dairy-Free, Paleo}

Pumpkin…good. Cheesecake…great. Pumpkin Cheesecake…fantastic! I was thinking about baking something delicious recently, that I hadn’t seen done on the interwebs, and struck up the idea for Dairy-Free Pumpkin Cheesecake.

8 Homemade Natural Gifts For The Holidays

8 Homemade Natural Gifts For The Holidays

I don’t know about you, but I love making my own products…especially when I know it’s free of chemicals and is in some cases cheaper (see homemade toothpaste, broth, milk, nut butters, etc).  And as much as I like to make it myself, it wasn’t until my crunchy mama friend, Melanie, suggested we get together and make some homemade gifts … Continue reading

Paleo Pumpkin Roundup 2014

Paleo Pumpkin Roundup 2014

Here it comes, the obligatory pumpkin roundup!  I’m starting to not like the word roundup, probably because it relates to Monsanto, but I couldn’t help myself again this year with posting all that pumpkin goodness.  See last year’s here. I’ve been on a roll it’s time to go solo with both roasting my own pumpkin and using … Continue reading
