Poppyseed Bread, Gluten and Diary Free

The last time I made poppyseed bread I must have been a little girl baking with my mom, it’s been so long.  Since then, I have had to learn to eat and cook without wheat or dairy.  This can be a challenge for baked goods, but not impossible!  This fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pant recipe turned out so perfectly …

Flourless Muffins… with help from my toddler

I’m starting a ramped-up health kick to shed the rest of my pregnancy weight.  Gym membership, check.  Low carbs for breakfast, check.  Sweet tooth?  Gotta keep it in check.  Eliminating all sugar is super difficult.  I just need to have a small something here and there, even if it is one square of dark chocolate …

What a beautiful reminder that the moments of each day only come once and then again only in memory.  This song has sold over a million downloads on iTunes… incredible.

Starry Night Cardboard Box

How do you creatively engage your kids when the day is too hot (or too cold) to play outside?  We found a way to recreate star gazing! To make the lights poke through, use a ball point pen and punch some initial holes, then push holiday lights through. Happy star gazing!

BOOK REVIEW: Paleofantesy by Marlene Zuk

I have recently been exploring ways of eating that have been scientifically linked to longevity and in turn, researching what foods raise the risk of cancer.  Longevity has so far been proven attainable by fasting diets like the 5:2 diet or some version of that.  This is a diet that I will be following once …
