Wishes really do come true! At least some do, like when I put a couple of Green Kid Crafts discovery boxes on my kids wish list, and then my friend Stephanie emails to let me know I'll be getting a free one as part of the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle that happened last week.I bought gemstone mining kits from the same company as Christmas [...] Continue Reading
Are You Goal Setting For 2017? I am! Most years I can't cram all my goals into just one word, but this year I can: WELLTH.It comes from a book I picked up recently. The strategies covered in the book are mostly written for people that are new to healthy living (do yoga, eat real food, practice thankfulness) but the way the author, Jason [...] Continue Reading
Note from Mommypotamus: I recently simplified the recipe found in this post using this hot apple cider as a base and wanted to re-share it with you. Although we don't really eat popcorn anymore, I can't stop giggling over the memory of this night and decided to leave it as-is.

When she visits she constantly tries to warm things up for me, and I'm like "Do you not remember what it was like when I was little? At least this is my food and not their leftovers that I am snacking on!"I guess you could say I'm mostly [...] Continue Reading
Do you remember what you got for Christmas when you were sixteen? Neither do I, but I can tell you that was the year my mom ended a huge argument between us by shoving her fist into a raw chicken, treating it like a puppet, and refusing to answer questions unless I directed them TO THE CHICKEN.And she can't tell you what she got for Christmas [...] Continue Reading
The first time kohlrabi arrived in my CSA box, I posted a photo of it on Facebook with "What is this, and what can I do with it??" Turns out, a lot of things: add it to slaw, roast it with salt, toss it into soup, or better yet, make kohlrabi fritters.We planted it in our garden this year, which means I've tried it lots of different ways. This [...] Continue Reading
