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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
~ 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 […]
I’ve wanted to share this recipe with you for ages! It’s one of my favorites… a go-to in our household. There’s just the small matter of these two babies I’ve been blessed with. Most nights, they prohibit the making of any sort of proper dinner, and on the rare miraculous occasions when a meal does […]
In many Thanksgivings past, I’ve counted down the days til the big feast… fantasizing about all the amazing ways I planned to “cheat” on whatever diet I was on at the time. Pie, stuffing, countless buttered rolls, and an obligatory bite of turkey. (Turkey’s never been my fave. Anyone else grossed out by the smell??) Well, […]
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates 460 B.C As you all know, I’ve recently had a baby! She’s two weeks old, in fact. And throughout the past two weeks, we’ve been very blessed to receive some wonderful food gifts from friends and family to help relieve the burden of food […]
I recognize that there is a very important time and place for “quick and easy” recipes… I’m all for them! It’s just that today’s recipe is not one of them. #sorrynotsorry ~ ~ You see, I have this strange attraction to complicated food. (Actually, let’s call it “complex” food… that sounds fancier and less scary.) […]
Are you familiar with the Babymoon trend? Essentially, it’s a mini-vacation you take right before a new baby enters the family. A bit of a “last hurrah” where you soak up the pleasures of uninterrupted sleep and quiet restaurant meals before those things become ancient history. (By the way, our lives changed in awesome ways […]
You all have been very patient with me, since clearly I have pregnancy and new babies on the brain 24/7. My Twitter feed is basically a chronicle of my latest cravings (mayonnaise toast, anyone?) My Instagram is a stream of bump photos and (again) food… and I may have even made a few inappropriate comments […]
~ Well, we are nearing the end of August. And believe me, NO ONE is happier to be bidding summer farewell than this girl! For one thing: I’m 8 months pregnant. For another: I live in Arkansas, where it has been in the upper 90s with 200% humidity since May. I’m itching to see those leaves […]
Ok… so this is just one girl’s opinion (feel free to vehemently disagree with me)… but I believe it is nothing short of a sin, a travesty, and a crying shame to cook garden-fresh tomatoes! ~ ~ Was that a confusing statement? What I mean is that in my ever-so-humble opinion, there is only one […]
What a weekend we have had so far! My siblings blessed me with a celebratory meal last night in honor of my 28th birthday. (And since food is my love language, this was pretty much the best possible gift they could have given me.) ~ ~ ~ OH, but that wasn’t all! They also created […]
