Gluten Free Blueberry Crisp (from Shauna Niequist’s book Bread & Wine)

I’ve mentioned before how much I l-o-v-e LOVE this book. At the end of many of the beautifully written chapters, Shauna lists a recipe mentioned within the pages you have just read. Which is brilliant really, because she makes everything sound so delectable, had she not included them…I think I would have been a bit sad. […]

celebrating the little things (part 1: tips & ideas)

I’m a firm believer in celebrating everything. Even the seemingly little or typical or mundane. A great grade on a test, a first good hit in baseball, learning to tie shoes by oneself, last day of preschool, or simply ‘cuz it’s Wednesday. Because God is good and He’s given us another day with these amazing […]

have you ever done a juice cleanse?

Have you ever done a juice cleanse?? Me neither. I didn’t really understand what they were all about, though Ben has been talking about doing one. Now, because I met a sweet new friend named Jill Latham…I’m doing one. Jill moved her Santa Barbara juice company, Vibrant Earth Juices to Denver recently and has basically taken over the […]

parmesan baked french beans

The other day, I posted the recipe for our family’s favorite salmon recipe. I had several questions about the french bean recipe, so I thought I’d let you know how I made them!
