Nutrient Packed Banana Bread with Maple Frosting

Every mommy has at least one recipe that she uses so frequently that she could make it in her sleep. (Wouldn’t that actually be great if we could do that?! Breakfast ready to go before we even entered the kitchen in the morning…Whala!) In all seriousness, though, I don’t know what I would do without this one. I love it because it is incredibly easy (the kids can help too!),...

Chicken Sausage and Kale Chip Pizza (with Cauliflower Crust)

Gluten-free, paleo, low carb, healthy, stinkin’ amazing…Yep, you have all of that lip smackin’ goodness with this recipe. I have wanted to try making a cauliflower crust pizza for quite some time, and today I finally put this together. Wow. I was amazed at not only how tasty it turned out, but also how easy it was to put together. This is definitely one for the books, and I most...

Paleo Chocolate Frosting (or Topping)

Oooh…this is good, and it is just in time for summer. Who doesn’t love a little chocolate sauce on top of her ice cream? The great thing about this sauce is that it is tasty (No kidding!), but also, it only contains 2 ingredients–good quality chocolate (I prefer Enjoy Life chocolate chips or chunks) and full fat coconut milk.

Once I decided that this was a fact worth celebrating, I started to have a bit of fun!I resolved that I could not only make chocolate often, but I could also make treats that were guilt free! 🙂 Yes, you heard me. Guilt free....

When my first son was born, I soon realized how the hours in the day seemed to slip out of my fingers more quickly than before I had a little one. 🙂 Along with the many things that I was unable to accomplish during the day, I also realized how hard it was for me to sit for an extended period of time and do my Bible study. And so...

Just a Moment~ Devotional Reflections #2~Written on Sept. 24, 2013

As a mother, I often find myself reflecting upon those moments with my child that seem to freeze time. Recently I had a moment with my son where nothing else captured my attention more than his tender heart and actions that communicated so much without any word spoken. The night was like any other. I tucked my son in for the evening and joined my husband on the porch to...
