Is this a real Pakistani recipe? I have no idea. Let’s go with yes… totally authentic. Authentic or not, it is really simple and really delicious. BONUS: it’s a one pot wonder. I was first introduced to this recipe by Wellness Mama. I have made this several times since that introduction and have altered it to [...]
So, I’m officially beyond the half way point of my Whole 30. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, this is a short term nutritional reset. For 30 days, I am eliminating all grains, legumes, dairy and added sugar. Most of the time, this hasn’t been that hard. But it hasn’t [...]
This blog started as a journey of exploration into real food and health for me. And although my journey in learning and trying new things continues in life, sadly I have to step away from the blog for personal reasons. I’ve had a few opportunities come up for me in my local area that will [...]

We had an early frost this year even though the fall weather has been just stunning. I pulled in the last of my tomatoes about a week ago (October when I wrote this). They have been sitting on the counter for a week ripening up and they were about ready for me to [...]
I have a confession to make. Last week I did not get to view or post any Freaky Friday submissions to Pinterest. I’ve been having connectivity issues, so my computer is really slow. I picked a few posts to feature this week based upon topics that interested me. But I’m [...]
