I’m a chronic overthinker. Always have been, always will be. And lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what exactly this blog is about. Today I’m going to write more about why I blog.… Read More »
Seeing as I published a conscious gift guide for her last week, it’s only fair that I share gift suggestions for the men in your life, too! Christmas is less than two weeks away, so here are some last-minute gift ideas that he’s sure to love.

Hello and happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend! 😀 This post was supposed to go up on Wednesday, but the wi-fi is out in our apartment again. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good internet-free day every now and then—just perhaps not as often as they happen here.

I love to see it go from its component parts–that I grow or produce, if possible–all the way to its final jarred or plated version.

But even if you’re not especially passionate about gardening or cooking, another great reason to make more staples from scratch is money. Simply making yogurt from scratch, we save $5 to $10 per week. We’re definitely not through with our transition from prepared foods to foods made from scratch, but today I thought I’d share the changes we have made, including recipes and how-to’s! … Read More »
