I know you must be thinking, “man, this woman REALLY likes yogurt!”

I know you must be thinking, “man, this woman REALLY likes yogurt!”

And you’d be wrong. I don’t like it all that much. Well, I didn’t until I learned to make my own. I never particularly cared for the sweet mixed with tart flavor combination of store-bought yogurt, but the great thing about homemade yogurt is that the tartness increases the longer you incubate it. So if […]

Homemade Yogurt, Part 2: Make it any flavor you want!

Homemade Yogurt, Part 2: Make it any flavor you want!

In my last post, I explained how to make your own yogurt using just an Instant Pot, a yogurt starter, and milk. If you’ve already attempted to make your own, you probably figured out pretty quickly that you can flavor it any way you want! So far, I’ve only made it as snacks for my […]

Introducing my latest obsession (and money saver!): Homemade Yogurt for the Win (I accidentally typed “wine” there, because habits)!

Introducing my latest obsession (and money saver!): Homemade Yogurt for the Win (I accidentally typed “wine” there, because habits)!

This is my second post in a row about the Instant Pot. I realize that may seem a bit…obsessive. And it kinda is, but in a healthy way. This thing does all the things: pressure cook, slow cook, saute, steam, sterilize… And it makes yogurt….delicious yogurt! And I don’t even like yogurt! My children, however, […]

Delicious and Easy Instant Pot Whole Chicken

Delicious and Easy Instant Pot Whole Chicken

In the days preceding and throughout Amazon Prime Day, there were a few deals on Instant Pots. Several of my friends took advantage of the sales and bought their very first IP, and I even bought a new one to replace the one I ruined by pouring chicken broth in it without the liner. Oops. […]

Cauliflower “Potato” Cakes and Pineapple Sweet Potato Cakes

Cauliflower “Potato” Cakes and Pineapple Sweet Potato Cakes

I’ve recently had a change of heart. Up until just a few months ago, I hated cauliflower. It looks too much like broccoli for my taste, so for years I’ve despised it based on appearance alone. But I had no idea what you could do with cauliflower in disguise! My first attempt at disguising cauliflower […]

Homemade Stock–Delicious and a Money Saver!

Homemade Stock–Delicious and a Money Saver!

The next time you go to throw out your meat bones or vegetable scraps, go ahead and slap yourself. Then throw them in a gallon freezer bag and save them! When the bag is full, dump it into a slow cooker and cook it all night on low. Or, bring it to a boil in […]

Happy 2nd day of Fall!

Happy 2nd day of Fall!

It’s officially my favorite season of the year. Living in the South, we don’t really have seasons other than Hot, Hotter, and Holy Baby Jesus It’s Hot. But during that time of the year when the rest of the country begins the marked progression between summer and winter, we like to pretend to do the […]

Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

Some time after my son was born, I learned that it was much more efficient to prepare two meals at one time. So whenever possible (if the recipe will freeze well), I bag and freeze an extra dinner while prepping. It only adds a few minutes to the prepping process, and it keeps me constantly […]

Vegetable-Packed, Yummy Tomato Sauce!

Vegetable-Packed, Yummy Tomato Sauce!

I love to make my own tomato sauce for several reasons: It’s incredibly healthy. I know exactly what’s in it (and what’s not in it!) and that makes me feel really good about what I’m feeding my family. Even the pickiest eaters love spaghetti! They don’t have to know just how many vegetables the sauce […]
