I love dried fruit and most kids like commercial fruit roll-ups.  This recipe is super easy and a good substitution for the not-so-healthy store version.  It's also a great pick-me-up with the concentrated fruit sugars.  When athletes ask me what food is good for quick...

We love these hearty whole grain muffins warm out of the oven with a slather of raw butter.  They're quick to make and quick to clean up.  They disappear quickly too.  My family gobbles up a dozen about as soon as they come out of the oven.  I like to pour the plain ba...

This is a ferment I frequently do, because I can just toss a variety of vegetables in a jar when I'm prepping vegetables for the week.  They're delicious as a snack, as a condiment, on a salad or in any other dish that needs a punch of flavor.  My son swears by drinkin...

Have you ever gotten this?

When you really wanted this?

How often have you had something that looks like this?

I've tried every hard "boiled" egg technique that I'm aware of.  I've brought them to a boil and then removed from heat.  I've baked them.  I've put vinegar, sal...

The best probiotics are the ones you create in your own kitchen.  Not everyone will love every ferment, but I've found that you can generally find several fermented foods to satisfy even picky palates and children.  These carrots happen to be a favorite of my 7 year ol...
