[I created this delicious Crock Pot Sweet Potato Chipotle Chili for Earth Fare!]
It’s just a fact of life, so there’s no real point to complain about it… but I’ll do it anyway and call it venting.
I HATE HOW DARK IT IS WHEN I GET OFF WORK IN THE WINTER.
In the summertime I head out of the office at 5 and it feels like I have ages to get stuff done before the sun goes down.
Walks! Shopping! Reading a book in the evening sunshine! You Name it! That extra sunlight makes room for so many after 5 o’clock activities. Continue reading
I like to spend a little bit of time at the beginning of the week to prep some staples. That way, when life gets crazy, it’s easy to throw a healthy meal together. This sweet potato enchilada sauce over chicken and cauliflower rice, for instance. 😋
This sauce was ridiculously easy thanks to:
- Organic jarred enchilada sauce (made with just a handful of pronounceable ingredients

Just wrap the potatoes in foil, add them to the crock pot, and cook on high for 3-4 hours. Voilà! Potatoes for the whole week.
How convenient is that?! Continue reading

Just another addition of Life Lessons from the Kitchen. Continue reading
I’ve had mixed feelings about this Fall. On the one hand, I’ve been LOVING the unseasonably warm temperatures we’ve had, and on the other hand I can’t help but to think 80 degrees in November isn’t right.
But this weekend I shoved all global warming worries aside, made this ridiculously simple and delish Avocado and Apple Tuna Salad, and headed for some hiking with one of my long-time besties, Bianca.
We set up our picnic station on a sunny spot and ate these cute little wraps in our tank tops.
You’re weird, November. Continue reading
