Note from Mommypotamus: Today’s delightful take on almond flour pancakes comes from Kristen Marr of Live Simply. Serve them up for a leisurely Saturday brunch or freeze them and pop them in the toaster for a quick weekday breakfast – either way, they’re sure to be a hit! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us Kristin!
And you’ll soon learn that kids aren’t supposed to eat food unless it’s fried, shaped like a dinosaur, or comes with a toy. Continue ReadingRead More »
Plump, juicy berries into your apron and whisked them to the kitchen to make medicine, wine, or jam? Yeah, me neither, but I will! I’m no Julie Andrews and I don’t (usually) twirl and sing in my kitchen, but gathering food and medicine from my yard does make things feel a little more magical, and some singing may be involved.

Note from Mommypotamus: Did you know that buckwheat is not a grain, but a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb? If you’re avoiding grains – or even if you aren’t – you have got to try these blueberry buckwheat pancakes from Renee of Raising Generation Nourished.

When your favorite place to rent movies is the public library. That was us.
As newlyweds, Daddypotamus and I made a game of stretching our entry level salaries in every way possible. We bought the cheapest foods we could get our hands on – thirty cent ramen noodle packets, canned tuna and mac & cheese in a box. We refinished furniture found at garage sales and thrift stores.

I’d love to be a bohemian world-traveler, but realistically my adventures are limited by my budget, the availability of goat babysitters, and the number of hours I am willing to try to entertain the potami in an enclosed space, whether it be a car or plane. Continue ReadingRead More »
Have you ever heard those words, asked where it hurts and watched your child point to their WHOLE tummy, plus maybe an elbow and an earlobe for good measure?
Yeah, me too. With such vague information, it can be incredibly challenging to figure out how to help them feel better, and when call a doctor if needed. Continue ReadingRead More »
