the kitchen


::our hand-picked berries from a cute local berry farm::

we do our best to use only local, fresh & organic ingredients whenever possible, and follow a “whole food” lifestyle.   we get a lot of awesome tips from Lisa Leake over at 100 Days of Real Food.  if buying all organic produce is not possible for you, check out Lisa’s pocket-sized dirty dozen list, here.

please note ::  on this site, {& in our kitchen} you will never find:

  • artificial coloring {here is why}
  • recipes that require boxed ingredients {example: a cake that uses boxed pudding mix in the recipe, etc.}
  • mushrooms  :)

you will find:

  • several recipes made with whole foods  {though we have our fair share of sugary goodness here}
  • items that did not work out… i am great at making mistakes in the kitchen, so why not share what went wrong? check out my chocolate cake recipe to see just one of my disasters
  • full fat everything! i don’t believe in low-fat, reduced fat, etc.  … nope, not even with our milk, we are a Whole Milk Family.
  • & lastly,  running updates! because running is such a big part of my life {for 15+ years}, i want to share a little about my experiences & this blog seemed like a great outlet  …but don’t worry, i’ll try to keep it food-recipe-heavy :)
*we always try to use organic ingredients when possible – just say No to GMOs !!
