Making Jerky


This is a really great snack for us on our new diet. But when you buy it, it’s expensive, made from factory-farmed meat (often, not always…but if not it’s even more expensive!), and can contain sodium nitrite. No thanks!


Recipe Collection: Thanksgiving Recipes

A collection of favorite gluten-free, casein-free Thanksgiving recipes. If you’re not “free” of anything, feel free to use “real” bread or butter instead of coconut oil. Although I love the coconut oil so much I might use it even if we weren’t dairy-free!


Recipe Collection: Chicken Marinade

I love marinated chicken, but I never buy commercial marinades. They’re full of high fructose corn syrup and a lot of other unnecessary ingredients. So, I mixed up my own marinade. This is so yummy! It works to grill it, bake it, make sandwiches, add to salads, etc. We eat it at least once every couple of weeks.


Recipe Collection: Stuffed Peppers

We love stuffed peppers so much, we have them at least every couple weeks! Sometimes we even have them every week. These are kind of fattening (which is GOOD!) and very yummy.


I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben.  I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything.  I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!
