The Joy of Homemade Kombucha!

Do you love buying kombucha from the store, but hate paying those prices?  Have you ever considered making kombucha at home? Hey y'all.  Long time no see!  Sorry for the neglect.  I've actually been struggling with what direction I want to take this blog and how to go about getting there and I haven't made up my mind yet, but I've at least got an exciting post to write about Kombucha today.  Recently, I've been on a kombucha kick.  It's…

Easy Pressure Cooker Green Chile Chicken

When I have an amazing, mind blowing recipe, I like to share it with y'all.  I don't have a good camera, so I'm always apprehensive about photographing my food.  I've asked for a camera for Christmas/Birthday, though, so hopefully my photos will get better!  Bear with me my people.  I'll just have to make the green chile chicken again and take better pictures of it.  What a hardship! I am so sorry I haven't posted anything in a week.  Several…

Whole30-Week Two

I feel like there should be a sign one gets to hold up that says "I survived two weeks on Whole30!!!" But then I think back on the last two weeks and how much delicious food I ate and how this Whole30 thing isn't so hard! In fact, for the first time in a long time, I feel like my health and fitness goals are finally attainable. I now have the gym habit (week 4 of weightlifting 5 days a…

Whole30-Week One

Bring on the holiday season!!! The weather is finally cooler.  My Pinterest board is filled with delicious looking treats.  We bought a chiminea for our backyard so we can cuddle by the fire on cool fall nights.  Days off work for the holidays are upcoming!  'Tis the season for merriment and joy and family. 'Tis also the season to start packing on the holiday pounds from all of the delicious food.  I have been working out on a semi regular…

Blueberry Oat Muffins

I have never been a fan of blueberry, ever, but Jacob decided to buy some at Costco a few weeks back and start putting them in our protein shakes.  I was surprised the shake was actually delicious.  I'd just eaten a blueberry and enjoyed it!

Eggs-traodinary Make Ahead Breakfast Bites

The Incredible Edible Egg.  (I sure hope you sang that!) What a weekend!  I hope y'all had a great weekend.  For those of you in the way of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Patricia, I hope you've managed to stay safe and dry.  My best friend and I chose this weekend to go to Galveston.  Of course.  And we got totally rained out, but not before we spent about 2 hours on the beach making a sand castle!  But what a sand castle…

Homemade Taco Seasoning

There's a reason it's called Taco Tuesday.  And you can't have tacos without a good taco seasoning, right? Today has been a day!  Monday was calm and quiet.  No voicemails at work, very few emails, no one getting mad at me, I was able to finish a painting I started a while ago....it was a good day. [caption id="attachment_137" align="aligncenter" width="720"] My tiger painting I was finally able to finish!!!![/caption] Today has been totally the opposite.  Work was crazy, so…
