Cinnamon Cashew Butter

My family and especially my coworkers always laugh about my obsession with nut butters. On any given day I have an array of 3-4 different types within reach. Even at the office, I keep a few jars hidden in my drawers, what can I say it’s my addiction! Everyone has their own, mine is just a very healthy/obsessive relationship with nut butters. ...more

Homemade Peanut Butter

Ahh... peanut butter! I've had a love for it ever since I can remember. Peanut butter toast is always my go to breakfast not only because it's tasty, but because it's so filling! I used to eat Jiffy peanut butter until I started eating clean and found out what is in it. Did you know that most processed peanut butters have a bunch of additives and unhealthy ingredients? Almost all peanut butters have palm oil in them which is really not healthy. That is why for the last year or so I try to buy only organic peanut butter where the ingredient list says peanuts only....more

PBB&D

I got a vitamix a little less than a year ago.  I really had no intention of spending that amount of money on a blender.  I have always dabbled in the smoothie arena making them occasionally over the years.  However I had the standard kitchen aid blender that I got as a wedding gift.  It was great then and had always done exactly what I needed – make the occasional smoothie, frozen beverage, and gazpacho in the summer, so when it died last spring I thought nothing of it....more

Bean Olympics

Not sure exactly who threw the gauntlet down first but the other night at dinner the boys had a serious string bean showdown. Someone dared Liam to eat a bean and it took off from there. Facing the peer pressure of both brothers he choked down a string bean to the cheers of the crowd. Not to be undone Matthew quickly raised the bar and ate two string beans. Well, Dylan, the major underdog surprised us all by eating five string beans at once. The crowd went wild!...more

Go nuts, Moms

If you haven't been paying attention, I love peanut butter. I cannot quite describe my love of peanut butter accurately, but let me just say that if I was positive my husband wouldn't look at me funny, I would eat it straight from the jar with a spoon in front of him. (I may or may not have done this outside of his eyesight; I'm not telling.)...more
