Paleo Turkey Chili in the Crockpot | #glutenfree

My favorite part of Halloween is probably the annual “make-the-face-of-your-pumpkin” photo. That never gets old. What does get old? The heat. I know, we choose to live here, but can’t I just wear a scarf once in the month of October? No? Ok fine. I’ll just take my whiny self into the air-conditioned house and curl […]

On March 6, 2010 my friend Mary emailed me a recipe for Mexican Chicken Soup. She sent it to a bunch of our friends from college who had been asking her for recipe ideas because we were, well, awful in the kitchen.  While most of us were still learning how to make boxed mac and […]

My kids are in Pre-K and 1st Grade, and already we are feeling the tug of a go-go-go lifestyle.  Between soccer, baseball, school functions, and church, sometimes it feels like we never stop moving.  What will it be like when they’re a little older and want to add music, dance, and other sports into the […]

Fire Roasted Slow Cooker Chili (Gluten Free & Vegan) from Beard & Bonnet

I’m pretty sure everyone in Phoenix made chili for dinner last night. We had a refreshing cold front blow through and my Instagram feed filled up with friends sporting scarves and proclaiming anything under 70 degrees to be chili weather.

Easy Turkey Chili by #glutenfree

It’s pouring rain right now.  POURING.  We keep looking out the window, mouths wide open, “It’s still raining.  Can you believe it?  It’s still raining!” Rain means a break from the heat.

It might not feel like fall around here, but my kitchen is starting to smell like it.  Fall is my favorite time of year for vegetables.  I love cutting into a big fat squash and smelling the sweet orange flesh as I scoop out the seeds.  Packed with antioxidants, orange vegetables help reduce your risk […]
