Life Changing Rosemary Mushroom Cream Sauce

This sauce is going to come into your life and envelop you in it's incredibly creamy embrace. It's quite simply the number one recipe we make at family holidays, and birthday occasions. I know the title is a little over the top, but I do save the truly outrageous claims for my family's all time favorite recipes. I mean the ... Read More

Saté Turmeric Chicken with Creamy ‘Peanut’ Sauce

These saté chicken skewers are the partner recipe to the Asian Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad I posted last week. The combination of flavors lights up your mouth, and the creamy 'peanut' sauce takes this dish right over the top. In fact I almost made a recipe out of just the 'peanut' sauce because it's both easy and versatile, along with ... Read More

Scenic Point in Glacier National Park

We couldn't have asked for a better day to hike Scenic Point in the Two Medicine area of Glacier National Park. Even though I've spent tons of time in Glacier, somehow I've never hiked in the Two Medicine region before. Many people come to Glacier every year, but only a few go out of their way to reach the Two ... Read More

Asian Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

I had the best lunch last week at a local Thai place that serves incredibly flavorful food. It was one of those meals that you just keep thinking about, and I knew I was going to need to recreate what I had to share with you too. So the thinking about lunch turned into an obsession, and I cancelled the ... Read More

Molasses Ginger Cookie Energy Bites

My favorite cookie of all time is my Grandpa's Molasses Ginger Cookies which I made into a gluten free version last year. They're highly addictive, and so good that I don't make them too often because I lack a little thing called 'willpower'! So I thought it might be fun to take the same flavors of this classic cookie, and ... Read More

Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza with Hashbrown Crust

I'll take savory over sweet any day for any meal, which is a little strange since I've always had a sweet tooth in the past. But something's changed over the years, and I'd choose to eat anything to do with cheese/bacon rather than a muffin, without a second thought. I had the idea for this breakfast pizza during the cauliflower pizza ... Read More

Gooey Cranberry Orange Skillet Cookie

It's the perfect time of year for all things gooey and decadent. I've been testing out lots of deliciously sweet things lately, and my friends and family are loving the recipe testing right now! The recipe for this Gooey Cranberry Orange Skillet Cookie started off with white chocolate chunks. But after doing some testing, I found that chocolate chips were preferred ... Read More

DIY Homemade Deodorant

This recipe has changed my life. I’m sure you’ve heard something like that before, but it’s true and it could change yours as well. I have tried so many different deodorants from the commercial ones containing aluminum to almost every natural brand that exists. Each one worked, sort of, to one degree (no pun intended) or another for awhile. I was never happy with what I was using until I found this recipe on Crunchy Betty’s site.

Spinach Salad with Honeycrisp Apples, Pomegranates, and Candied Nuts

Pomegranates have been making their appearance again, and they're always a favorite in our house for fall/winter salads. It doesn't matter what the season is, we love having a giant salad for dinner at least once a week. And since I've just used up the last of my garden tomatoes, (except for a few precious packages of fresh tomato sauce ... Read More
