Don’t waste any more time in the cosmetic isle getting overwhelmed by thousands of choices and being unsure of what is best. This will shed light on what to avoid when it comes to your skin.
I’ve got another installment of simple, healthy food swaps to share with you today. I hope these ideas make things a little bit easier for you.
I’ve struggled in the past with ice melting in our cooler and leaking questionable “yuckiness” into our food, so how could I not love the idea of a cooler without ice!
I have an exciting announcement about a little project our family has been working on behind the scenes for the past year. And by “little,” what I really mean is “tiny” – we’ve built a Tiny House on Wheels to use in the mountains!
This Braised Asian Meatballs and Cabbage dinner is the epitome of quick. You can pull it together in just 15 or 20 minutes with only a handful of dirty dishes left for you when you’re done.
Summer break is halfway over, which means there’s still plenty of time for fun outdoors! We’ve been packing lots of snacks and these are some favorites.
Blue Apron makes it easy for the whole family to be involved with the cooking and, at the same time, for your kids to learn how to cook.
Just got back from the trip of a lifetime to Morocco, and I’ve got “tagine” recipe for your slow cooker to share since we absolutely loved the food abroad!
While I’ve had this combo together many times on pizza, in pasta, and even in frittatas, I’ve never thought to throw them on the grill together – until now! And let me tell you what, especially with the addition of the fresh oregano sauce on top, these Grilled Sausage and Bell Pepper Kabobs were even better than I expected.
With the 4th of July just around the corner, I’ve got a brand new recipe for you that would be the perfect addition to your holiday barbecue! Coleslaw is obviously a staple this time of year, but how about switching it up with a Green Apple Cucumber version instead of typical cabbage?
I’m so excited to be offering you an AWESOME giveaway today. Kamikoto knives are designed for chefs and serious home cooks, and I used one when chopping up a large eggplant for my new Cheesy Eggplant Bake recipe (which I am also sharing below).
My family is a huge fan of scones, and these Raspberry Almond Scones below (flavored with almond extract) are no exception! If pancakes and waffles are your go-to weekend breakfast treats, then I’d suggest switching things up with this recipe instead.
With summer upon us, I’m guessing you may have a road trip or two in your future. We’ve got a few travel plans on the agenda ourselves, and there’s one thing we often seem to be faced with when out of town – buffets.

Fermented foods are all the rage these days. Kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, and kefir are just a few of the popular ones. But what is kefir (pronounced “keh-FEER”)? Invented as a way to preserve fresh milk, the outcome is sort of a cross between yogurt and milk and, in all honesty, we had not tried it yet ourselves up until now.
Like mac n’ cheese? Then you’ll love this cauliflower gratin packed with veggies instead of noodles. My 10 year-old was surprised it was even cauliflower!
I’m a big fan of Thai food and all the flavorful sauces, but I often forget how easy it is to make at home. So I am excited to share the outcome of this Easy Thai Chicken and Rice recipe with you!
I’ve always been a potato cake fan but never tried making them with mashed potatoes (as opposed to shredded potatoes) until now. What I love about this Smashed Potato Cakes with Kale recipe, aside from the taste, is how it can easily pass for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Well, today is my birthday, and I am turning the big FOUR-OH! So, what better way to ring in another decade than with a super scrumptious homemade Chocolate Chip Bundt cake?
One thing I love about shrimp is how quick and easy it is to make. This light Creamy Shrimp Pasta with Lemon is a perfect way to kick off summer.
I think we can all agree homemade spaghetti sauce is best, but not always possible. This recipes gives you that yummy flavor without all the simmering time!
Though it seems we’ve all been hearing about essential oils more and more lately, they’ve actually been around for centuries and have even been said to date back to King Tut’s tomb. If you’re new to essential oils, you are in luck! Here’s the scoop on some of the most popular oils and how to use them.
I was brainstorming what types of super EASY dinners I might be in the mood to make when arriving back home right at 5:00 pm on a school night after a busy weekend out of town. So, the winning home cooked dinner turned out to be Simple Seafood with a side of the Sheet Pan Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes
See what my 12-year-old, the biggest sunscreen hater I know, thinks of the four SAFER non-mineral sunscreens we tried out on a recent trip to Florida.

Not everyone can – or wants to – buy everything organic. In some cases, you simply can’t find organic options, or you may just not want to foot the bill if it costs more. This is not a new topic here, but one that needed a little updating.
The difference between our winter veggie garden today and exactly one year ago is absolutely mind-blowing. So I just had to share how it’s gone from sad to spectacular!

One of my favorite dinners to cook in the summer is grill packets! They are super easy to make, can be prepared in advance, and give you a great excuse to sit around the fire pit at the end of the night. You don’t even have to get any plates dirty if you don’t want to. These …

All it took was a couple of recent trips to Ikea and reading the book A Man Called Ove (pronounced Oovay) for me to crave some good ol’ Swedish meatballs! Now, I don’t think I’ve ever met a meatball I didn’t like, and this recipe below is absolutely no exception. My family devoured this one-dish dinner, and …
There are so many snack bar options these days it can be downright overwhelming. But as we’ve mentioned in the past, many of these bars are simply glorified candy bars with some including almost a full day’s suggested amount of sugar – in just one bar! Also many have unnecessary additives most people would not …
I guess I’m on a roll because first I was inspired to do a big pantry redo, then I decided I could no longer stand our disastrous extra freezer, and next my husband is hinting around that I need to tackle the spice drawer. I think we can officially say spring cleaning is underway over …
I have to say, I might be the minority here, but I don’t like the Instant Pot! I honestly went into this with an open mind and have used it several times for all different types of recipes to really get a good feel for what it can do.
Today I’m excited to tell you all about King Arthur’s new whole-grain Sprouted Wheat Flour and how it turned out in the yummy savory scone recipe I’m sharing!
