On a spur of the moment trip to a different co-op, I found some new (to me) dairy-free yogurt!! So naturally I had to get a few flavors to try. I only got two flavors from each brand but they each had at least four varieties. As sometimes the flavor of the yogurt can affect … Continue reading Battle of the Dairy Free – Volume 2
I feel a wee bit guilty for calling this a recipe. It is really more just combining ingredients together. But I don't feel guilty enough that I won't post it! I started adding pesto to my sweet potatoes when I was on the Whole 30 challenge last year. It was a way to mix it … Continue reading Pesto Sweet Potatoes
I posted a bit of this story of Facebook and people found it hilarious. After a little consideration, I decided the full story deserved a full post. So let me set the scene, wanting a quick and easy dinner plan I turned to Pinterest for crockpot dinner ideas. I liked the idea of the chicken … Continue reading Misadventures in Crockpot Cooking
Two pieces of administrative news to start this post. First, I love dairy but dairy gives me hives. Second, I miss good yogurt more than I miss cheese. At least I can have small amounts of goat cheese or harder cheeses without a reaction. Yogurt on the other hand is almost instant itch.

So this post is a wee bit late, but it will still entertain! As I am sure many of you can relate, this holiday season kind of snuck up on me. And of course some little germ factory got me sick so between the cold, the parties, and the "oh holy cow this has to … Continue reading Cleo got Minions!
Administrative news, this (supposed to be) diary-free girl gets really darn sick of fake dairy. OK Tofutti I do love you, but you aren’t really a substitute. Also, I am not a fan of mayonnaise for the same reason, the after taste. Just not a fan of oily, sometimes chemically not-goodness. Enter this delicious and … Continue reading Avocado Cream
Let me start by saying, I missed this. It has been ages since I sat down to write, even something short and simple, and coming back to it is like meeting an old friend for coffee. You don’t always realize you missed them till they are in front of you. The last few weeks have … Continue reading Priorities, I (sort of) have them.
I attended an event recently with a speaker who talked about how to be your best self. Sounds like a good thing, we all have room for improvement right? And for the most part this speaker was good and had good points. Points about how physical health can affect mental health, forming healthy habits takes … Continue reading My Feminist Rant
I have a confession to make. Until just this past weekend, I had never read a book from the Harry Potter series. This may come as a shock to some of you because A) I read veraciously and B) I really like the movies. The reason I never started them is fairly unremarkable really. You … Continue reading A Chagrined Review of Harry Potter
I recently took the time to pepper my favorite skincare expert with questions that, let’s face it, we all want to ask but haven’t had the nerve. Skin is our largest organ, so we need to treat it right. Amber is the CEO of Amber Budd Atelier as well as a Licensed Esthetician Manager and … Continue reading Q&A with the Expert – Amber Budd Atelier
