Honey Facial Massage

This Honey Massage Facial Mask has been a go-to beauty treatment for me for years. It's just one simple ingredient, but there are so many benefits. It's a case of the sum being more than the parts. Honey is a humectant, which means that it draws water to itself, helping to keep your skin moisturized. It's anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral ... Read More

One Pot Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

This One Pot Mac and Cheese has been a while in the making. I first made it back when the one pot meal craze first hit. But then in the way of a recipe developer always making new things, it went to the back burner - really no pun intended. Time went by, and I sort of forgot about it. ... Read More

Day 3 Þórsmörk in Iceland

Our first full day in Iceland was spent in the Landmannalaugar region of the highlands in Iceland. On the long drive out, we stopped for the night in a privately owned campsite for a bit of sleep. Then the next morning we started out early to head into the Porsmork region of the highlands. There are highland roads you can ... Read More

Pina Colada Green Smoothie

I have a history of coming up with a new green smoothie recipe, and then I drink it on repeat for months on end! The only thing I do try and vary is the type of greens I use in my smoothie. This way you don't overdose on one particular green, and you rotate through the different nutrients. Last winter ... Read More

Cranberry Orange Shortbread Streusel Bars

I had a request for these earlier this year, but since it was March and I was heading into spring recipes, I had to make a note of it for later. Luckily it's finally cranberry season so I can make this idea a reality. Cranberry orange is such a great combination, and turning it into streusel bars is the best ... Read More

Easy Breakfast Potatoes O’Brien

I never even knew about Potatoes O'Brien until I tried them at my mother-in-law's house. I was crazy about the flavors from the first bite. I've often made my breakfast potatoes with green onions added in. But there's just something extra good about the flavor the bell pepper adds. Traditionally there's both red and green bell peppers in these breakfast ... Read More

Honey Mustard Chicken Apple Skillet Dinner

When you have a bounty of apples, they start appearing in all sorts of things! I've been overrun this fall with McIntosh and Sweet Sixteens from my mom's apple trees. And I have to say, it's been a great problem to have. First up I redid my Crockpot Applesauce. Then I developed this super easy skillet dinner, and still to ... Read More

Crockpot Applesauce

Ever since I started making applesauce in the crockpot, I've never looked back. It's so easy to put together, and it cooks while I sleep! Waking up to fresh applesauce for breakfast is also totally great. The whole house smells amazing, and applesauce tastes so good warm or even hot, (which was a new concept for me). If you've never ... Read More

Days 1 & 2 Landmannalaugar in Iceland

Our time in Iceland started out better than we could've ever dreamed! In fact over the course of the first couple of days, we kept saying 'I don't think it can get any better than this'. But of course, Iceland didn't disappoint as you'll see! We started the trip off predictably with almost no sleep in two days. But eager ... Read More
