“Spaghetti” and Homemade Meat Sauce

Who doesn’t love a delicious plate of spaghetti and sauce? I know I sure do! πŸ™‚ Plus, now that I have discovered how wonderful it is to use spaghetti squash in place of noodles, I can’t say enough about this dish. Of course, if you are still craving noodles with your sauce, there are plenty of gluten-free options out there. In fact, Trader Joe’s sells an excellent brown rice noodle...

DIY Brown Sugar Scrub

I am so excited; I am actually attempting a few DIY gifts this year for the Christmas holiday! πŸ™‚ Now, I am being totally honest here.

Savory Butternut Squash Soup

The cold weather is here, and that means it’s time to start gathering all of my soup recipes. πŸ™‚ There is something soothing to me about holding a cup of soup in my hands, curling up, and savoring every bite. Well, that is probably true of many of us, isn’t it? πŸ™‚ I have found several to savor, but this one is at the top of my list. I love...

Homemade Coconut Milk

In my journey of wellness, I have found that there is one particular pantry staple that is essential: good ol’ coconut milk. πŸ™‚ What I have also discovered is that I don’t love the fact that many coconut milks contain stabilizers and thickeners which I believe take away from the nutritional value of the product. In fact, a common ingredient now found in store-bought cartons of “dairy milk substitutes” such...

Homemade Plantain Crackers

Okay…I am addicted to these. Seriously! I love them. I discovered this recipe from The Paleo Mom about six months ago, and I have made them several times. I will admit that my early batches did not turn out as well, and it took some time to play with the mixing times, the oil amount, the baking times, etc. Here are some things I have discovered: 1) Take time to...
