Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Basil Pesto

Hi Y’all!  Since finishing my 3 day detox, I have really been paying much more attention to what I am putting in my body.  I have still been avoiding the gluten and dairy for the most part, and just trying to eat clean food with really simple ingredients. I have a pot on my frontContinue reading “Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Basil Pesto”

3 Day Detox

Hi Y’all!  It has been so long since I have posted anything on here.  So many changes have happened in the last year.  My husband quit his job.  We left Canada, bought an RV and became gypsies for a few months. We had some good times on the road, but it was not as easyContinue reading “3 Day Detox”

Kale Salad with Garlicky Lemon Dressing

It has been a few weeks since my last post and lots has happened.  I turned another year older and hopefully wiser.  I have been so busy painting some new and custom pieces for Opal & Eve (feeling so happy for this).  We have also had kids birthday parties, halloween parties, school and gymnastics.  Yep,Continue reading “Kale Salad with Garlicky Lemon Dressing”

Arugula with Roasted Beets and Clementines

Life has been a bit of a rollercoaster lately.  The seasons are changing, and so are our lives.  Minda is starting her first year of preschool.  I am so happy for her, but at the same time I will miss spending our days together, visiting the zoo and going to the playground.  She has been myContinue reading “Arugula with Roasted Beets and Clementines”

Chocolate Almond Milk Ice Cream

Minda celebrated her third birthday this past weekend.  It sounds so cliche, but I really do not know where the time has gone.  It is hard to believe that my sweet and helpless little baby is now a smart and independent little girl.  We spent her birthday at Heritage Park, riding the amusement rides over and over again. Continue reading “Chocolate Almond Milk Ice Cream”
