Being diagnosed with celiac disease was a huge bummer for me. But it was also a huge relief. I finally had a reason for my pain, and a plan for how to feel better. Many people are not that lucky. I have had so many friends go through years of testing and misdiagnosis with no concrete explanations for what is making them sick. So many people who are at the…

Paleo Energy Bites

I did a little food prep this afternoon. After whipping up some Roasted Sweet Potato Salad and Indian Spiced Chicken, I turned my attention to these cute little guys. I like to call them raisin nut bites but the Pinterest crowd likes to call them paleo energy bites. So as a sell-out to good blog traffic, this is what I will call them. Our family doesn’t necessarily eat paleo, but…

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

So we moved to Texas. And it feels weird. But good. Especially being around family. Last week we grilled out at my sister’s house. She lives on a canal and has the most amazing game collection.

The first time Joe took a bit of hummus, he proudly exclaimed, “I love this humpus!” Yes, humpus. We laughed so hard that the name stuck. So if you come over and I put out a tray of veggies and humpus, please make sure to refer to it accordingly. For October entertaining, I love to put a pumpkin spin on anything I can. This pumpkin spiced hummus humpus has a hint…

Quick Pickled Carrots with Garlic and Dill

This week I bought the GIANT bag of carrots at Costco and brought them home only to remember that we didn’t bring our BlendTec to Montana. Hmm, what to do with all the carrots? Then I remembered making garlicky pickled carrots a few years ago and instantly had a craving for them. I whipped these up in about 10 minutes, stuck them in the refrigerator, and came back 24 hours…
