Pine Pollen Peppermint Patties

Pine Pollen Peppermint Patties

Saint Patrick’s Day for me was all about food. Not just eating it, but making it and sharing it with my family. I not only made a slightly sweeter version of my Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies, but I also whipped up some traditional Irish soda bread. But, before the baked goods, I developed these Pine … Read More

Simple Walnut Milk Recipe

Simple Walnut Milk Recipe

Since moving to the walnut farm back in October (the start of walnut harvest), I’ve been using walnuts in just about everything. Before, the only nut milks I used were almond and coconut (and sometimes a blend of the two). I’d tried making my own almond milk before, and it worked great, but honestly didn’t … Read More

We’ve all judged other people’s’ decisions and the way other people live their lives. Honestly, I do it … Read More

Nourishing Swoodle Soup (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

Nourishing Swoodle Soup (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of year. Family, food, coziness, and just an all-around good time. Especially with the family and the food. I am definitely not one for restriction or “diets”, and truly believe we should all eat what nourishes our bodies (i.e. soup) AND souls (i.e. cookies). And during the … Read More

How to Make Lavender Hot Chocolate

How to Make Lavender Hot Chocolate

I’ve always loved lavender. The taste, the smell, the calming effects it had, all of it. It’s probably one of my favorite flowers, too. So lately, I’ve been getting curious about how to incorporate culinary lavender into my food and drinks, especially into my hot chocolate!    As many of you know, I can’t have … Read More
