This fall, we've decided to incorporate daily cooking or baking into our homeschool routine. Not only does this teach our kids (without them realizing they're doing 'school') but it's also a great bonding activity and something we have to do multiple times a day anyway, so we may as well take advantage of the teaching moments! We recently watched the show "Down to Earth with Zac Efron" on Netflix and it really got us thinking about our health and ways we can improve it. Instead of eating sugary Read more [...]

Easy Keto Crock-Pot Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

Before adapting to the keto diet, my family loved going to our local Hawaiian restaurant and getting the teriyaki chicken and rice meal. To say it was a family favorite would be a bit of an understatement. Now that we have been on the keto diet for over a year, we have learned to make some of our non-keto favorite meals, healthier.

My parents and grandparents always grow huge gardens though, so we end up with more produce than we know what to do with; especially tomatoes! This year I had some tomatoes that were going to go bad if they didn't get used up, so I made a fresh salsa that was a HUGE hit, even with our kids! I only had to buy a couple of ingredients, and it lasted us almost a week of daily Read more [...]

Melt In Your Mouth Mediterranean Stuffed Pork Tenderloin ~ Recipe

With us still sheltering in place, I have been able to experiment with several new recipes. One new recipe, I recently tried was making Mediterranean Stuffed Pork Tenderloin. This recipe came together out of need. You see, my absolutely wonderful husband did our monthly shopping at Costco. While there, he grabbed a tub of feta cheese remembering that the week before I had mentioned wanting to get some. In my mind, I imagined getting a cute little container of feta, but him not being a mind reader, Read more [...]
