Let's make beautiful food together!
I pulled out the big guns for October in the Pretty Hungry 2015 Recipe Calendar for obvious reasons. (Because October is the best month there is. Duh.) This is the recipe I was most excited about in the whole calendar… which is saying something since this granola is pretty to-die-for. But this one was my baby. […]
This won’t be your typical Kansas City food tour, because I am told that one of those would not be complete without KC barbeque, and I like to eat a bit lower on the food chain than that. Actually, it might shock you to learn that KC has some downright AMAZING options for us plant-food-lovers! I […]
Maybe this makes me a wimp, but I reeeeally can’t handle the heat when it comes to salsa. Medium is about as crazy as I get on the spiciness scale. So it comes as no surprise that I’m a big fan of salsas that incorporate fruity sweetness into the mix. Any mango salsa lovers out […]
Chris and I recently attended a couples retreat as the official retreat chefs. (Sooo fun!) We spent the weekend with four other couples at a lake house in Heber Springs, Arkansas. (If you’ve never seen Heber Springs, it’s a little slice of Heaven’s beauty on Earth.) I totally LOVED having the opportunity to get away from […]
June was a month of cherries at our house. And fun fact: Cherries have been my favorite fruit since childhood. My mom used to buy me my own bag to eat all by myself every summer on our way to Camp Ne-o-Tez. (There was a farm stand on our way… Chico’s in DeSoto, MO. Anybody […]
It seems that every time I find myself drafting out a new post in my head about a monumental event, like my birthday, or the New Year, I find myself getting all sappy and reflective. Like this year, for instance. It was supposed to be an uphill year, after two really reeeeeally bad ones for my […]
You’ll have to forgive my long absence… the PH blog has been undergoing a major spruce-up! So whaddya think of the new design? Our focus in re-designing was to make this space more user-friendly, less cumbersome to my server, and (of course) more attractive to you (and me!) I’m SO pleased with the result, and excited […]
~ Hiya! So here’s the thing. I’m not a crafty mom. I have my strengths… but they do not include the patience to sit and weave pot holders or finger paint Easter Bunny masks with my two-year-old. So the fact that I made these Easter pops and dyed Easter eggs this year with my young-un’ […]
Last week I hosted a (long-overdue) birthday dinner for my brother’s sweet wife, Kelly. And OH MAN, was it fabulous! As is our family’s birthday custom, the birthday girl got to handpick the entire menu and was not required to take into account anyone else’s food preferences whatsoever! She chose a very carbtastic meal, and […]
I’ll be the first to admit that planning posh events is not one of my talents. Need someone to teach you how to boil a chicken? I’m your gal. Want to know more about how to eat to prevent disease? Bada bing… call me up. I’d even go so far as to call myself creative […]
I’ve been getting a funny question rather frequently lately… What does a typical day of meals/snacks look like for me? I suppose it isn’t that funny since I’ve made no secret about the fact that I’ve transitioned to eating mainly whole, plant foods, and have also cut out pretty much all added sugar. Not exactly […]
~ Some time ago I was asked to collaborate with Golden Girl Granola for a product review here on Pretty/Hungry! I had never heard of the company before so I was very intrigued. Afterall, it’s not easy to find a great granola… most of the brands I’ve tried are far too sweet, and are, of […]
~ Meet Miss February. This soup is Miss February in the 2015 Pretty/Hungry Recipe Calendar. Have you snagged your copy yet? Because it’s not too late. (Although it’s kinda too late since we’re two months into 2015… but what I mean is, it’s not too late for you to get a calendar if you want […]
~ You might recall a recent Facebook post in which I sheepishly confessed that I just now removed the pumpkins from my porch. (Yes, the ones I had out there to commemorate the Harvest season. Yep, it’s February.) I’m a mom of a 2-year old and a newborn, and I run two home businesses… what […]
Some time ago, my mother-in-law gifted me with a little stove top espresso maker she bought in Italy. (And technically, she bought it for *us*. But I feel that the bond between said espresso maker and myself has grown so deep that really it cannot truly belong to Chris as equally as it does to […]
