Frosted Christmas Cutout Cookies blog post with picture of a plate of festive cookies

I am a big Christmas lover! I love it so much that I tell people I’m part elf. Once November hits, the Christmas music starts in my house and by mid-November, my halls are decked and full of holiday spirit. Of course, you can’t have holidays without special holiday foods! What are the holidays without cookies? Making a batch of these frosted cutout cookies is a perfect way…

Slow Cooker Lentil and Sausage Soup recipe post featuring a bowl of lentil sausage soup on a wooden table

I am a big fan of soups and stews when it’s chilly outside. Nothing warms me up quite as well. And since the nights have been cooler I have been drawn to fixing more soups. But I have also been wanting to create some new soups. That’s what led me to create this slow cooker lentil and sausage soup. I have to admit that I’ve never really cooked…

White Bean Soup with Smoked Sausage recipe blog post with a picture of a bowl of the soup

Summer has now gone and fall has arrived. That means the start of soup and stew season is upon us. I’m not someone who eats a lot of soup during the hot summer months. Just like I don’t drink hot beverages. For some reason, it just makes me too warm. But now that the weather is getting cooler and it’s getting dark earlier, I want soups like this…

Mediterranean White Bean Salad Blog Post with a picture of a bowl of Mediterranean white bean salad on a table

I have been inspired to create and eat more Mediterranean-based recipes this year. Especially during the warm months of the year. That area of the world is known for having greater longevity than here in the US. It is lower in sugar and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. They also consume less red meat and more fish. And the olive oil is always flowing as well. I…

Iced Pumpkin Chai Latte Blog Post- picture of an iced pumpkin spice latte sitting on a table

September is here! And that means that it’s officially pumpkin spice season. I really enjoy all of the spices of the season and love good pumpkin spice or chai lattes. But here in South Carolina, early September still gets pretty darn hot! So, while I want to enjoy some pumpkin goodness, drinking a hot beverage is not going to work for me! I also don’t like all of…

Simple Greek Frittata Recipe post- Picture of a piece of Greek frittata on a red and white plate. It is sitting on a table with the remaining pan of frittata and a red bowl filled with sliced strawberries

There are some times when I’m just inspired to create a new recipe and this simple Greek frittata was definitely inspired. Today when I was thinking about what I wanted to fix for lunch, nothing sounded good at all. I absolutely hate it when that happens. So as I stood there, in front of my refrigerator wanting something to catch my attention, I noticed the eggs. I haven’t…

Summer is here and it’s the perfect time for a nice, cool, refreshing pasta salad like this Italian pasta salad. I don’t know about you, but when the summer heat arrives, the last thing I want is a lot of hot foods to eat. I certainly don’t want to be spending tons of time in a hot kitchen. And I really like the ease of a nice pasta…

Ground Chicken, Potato, and Spinach Soup Blog Post- Picture of soup in a red bowl with crackers on the table next to the bowl

I really love creating new recipes like this ground chicken, potato, and spinach soup. But this recipe actually came from necessity at a time when I was pretty limited in what I could eat. In the past, I’ve had issues with digestive issues, particularly gastritis, especially when under extreme stress. Digestive issues aren’t uncommon for those of us who are sensitive. Chronic stress is the main contributor to…

Do you enjoy barbecue sauce but don’t like the additives in store-bought varieties? I’ve created this simple honey barbecue sauce that can help! When the weather starts to get warmer here in South Carolina, I find that I don’t want to cook as much indoors. I prefer to keep the oven off and instead, I grill more. Using my oven just tends to make my house too hot.…

I know so many empaths and highly sensitive people who struggle with food intolerances, allergies, and sensitivities. It really can stink to struggle with bloating, fatigue, brain fog, and skin issues because our bodies struggle after eating certain foods. And I’m speaking from experience! Grains, dairy, and even sugar can cause major imbalances. For me, I recognized that if I eat a lot of grains it impacts my…
