Savory Kid Friendly Meat Pies

When it comes to feeding a toddler, meal acceptance is always different in our household. Although Liam is slowly learning that what we prepare IS what we’re eating (no longer short order cooking), we still have our constant struggles. Sometimes, he doesn’t feel good, isn’t “feeling” the menu, or is just in a grumpy mood….

How to Detoxify your Home: Part Two

Continuing on my DIY healthy home conversion, part two of the detoxification series is dedicated to the next common  home contenders: mattresses and paint. Who would have ever thought that both mattresses and paint leech out so many harmful chemicals into the air? Until a few months ago, certainly not me.

Juicy Chimichurri Bison Chorizo Sausage

For most of this pregnancy, I’ve been craving MEAT. Ever since I traveled for work last December and had the most scrumptious chimichurri skirt steak, it’s been on my mind.

Non-Toxic and Hydrating Skincare for the Entire Family

For anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a total freak when it comes to what goes in or on my body, including my family’s. I’m THAT person who will read the ingredients of our groceries/out to eat and research the materials in everything I buy. This is because all of the crap that goes…

How To Detoxify Your Home: Part One

Now that we’ve been homeowners for a few months…with a tiny human, pups, and pregnant, my brain is been in severe overdrive figuring out ways to detoxify our 100 year old bungalow. As a part of a three part series, I’ll be sharing how we have made progress towards detoxifying our lives and home.

Spiced Paleo Ham

Soon after Liam visited his new school, I got my first holiday pot luck invite as a new suburban mama. Although the new opportunity to make new mommy friends sounded exciting, it was equally daunting. I didn’t know these ladies’ tastes, any allergies to be aware of, or really what to expect for a pot…

Easy Six-Step Sausage Stuffing

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve gotten a chance to write an article. Between moving into a new house, an energetic toddler, and surviving the first trimester of a new pregnancy, mama has been tired. However, now that my appetite and energy is kind of back, I’ve been really into cooking for the fam…

Gluten-Free Pizza Cups

Tying to deal with toddlers’ every changing food preferences and aversions can drive you INSANE. Especially when your kid has food sensitivities/allergies and your options are already limited. After seeing my pizza-burger-wing (anti-Aimee lifestyle) husband continually eat his usuals, an idea popped in my head: introduce pizza to this kid and see how it goes.

Gluten and Dairy-Free Orange Chicken Meatballs

It’s not a surprise that the hubs and I have polar opposite eating habits. I enjoy eating super clean, organic, dairy-free, AIP, etc. The hubs enjoys the typical Americano bar food type of menu (um, who wouldn’t if they had no dietary restrictions). Since my son and I share similar food intolerances, 99.9% of the…

How to Air Fry a Steak

Now that Liam has been mobile for 3+ months, constantly chasing a toddler has made making meals has been a tad more difficult. One night that the hubs was sick, I had thawed out steaks but didn’t have time to pan sear/finish in the oven because Liam was nonstop going for the dog bowls and…
