Hello, dear reader! I’m insanely excited to share my latest project with you: an ongoing cheese review! First of all, let me explain why. I started noticing something felt odd with this blog. I wasn’t really updating anymore and had no desire to share recipes, even though I’m still cooking up new ones all the [...]
Hello, hello, one and all! I am so very excited today to share my homemade toothpaste recipe with you. It took me some time researching the right recipes and experimenting before I realized: Homemade toothpaste does NOT have to be complicated! For one, you do not NEED fluoride. For two, you probably have everything you [...]
If you tell me that for under $15, including shipping, you will send me a box full of things I very well might like, I will give you that money like it was never mine in the first place. And since I love VitaCost anyway, the Be Well box was a natural progression in our [...]
I’d love to make this into a rotating series with other real food bloggers who share their struggles in the kitchen (or the grocery store). Whether it’s budgeting, sourcing, or cooking, share the stress! By sharing it, we can move past it and get into the good parts (the eating). Please email me if you’re [...]
One of my all-time most popular posts here is about No Poo, or washing your hair with alternative cleaning methods. These can include a variety of different products.

Wow…what a month! I took part-time employment out of the house (the first time in over a year) so naturally, my numbers should be lower. But, I also found out that I offended AdSense in some terrible way, which resulted in my account being shut down temporarily. Those two weeks cost me ALL of the [...]
After you create your starter, feed it and dump it regularly, and have given it enough time to create a really nice tang, you know the next step is the fridge. But what happens there? Do you leave the lid on tight? Do you have you feed it every week? Can you cook with the [...]
I’ve come to realize that hey, maybe I should explain a bit about why I eat these weird foods and make my own butter, yogurt, kefir, sourdough, and all that other stuff. Sure, there’s the fun element of cooking and baking and having a project, but there is so much more! When I was a [...]
This is one of those questions I often ask myself, sometimes mention to those I trust, and keep secret from the rest of the world. It starts with a story (yes, another one). I graduated from college in December 2010. I was in college for 4.5 years because I’m a glutton for knowledge. I never [...]
