I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
– L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

I’ve been watching the tables groan under the weight of the piled produce at the market and thinking about autumn’s slow death as we creep towards winter. There’s beauty in the final push. The baskets filled to overflowing, bunches of herbs tumbled together. And the flowers.

I stood outside yesterday–first at the market and then at home–appreciating that the sun felt warm on my skin. Our chickens (I haven’t talked about them here yet–we … Read More

Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl Recipe (with protein!)

A delicious but simple smoothie bowl recipe you can make a home. With berries, bananas, and honey on top, you’ll feel like you’re at your favorite smoothie bowl spot without the high prices!

I’m obsessed with smoothie bowls lately – case in point, see my blog profile photo (to the right on desktop, below the post on mobile). Ha! The main difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl is less liquid (about 1/4 as much) so it’s thicker and you can eat it out of a bowl with a spoon (well, duh…Teri).

But that’s important because then you can add lots of toppings which makes it 100x better than a smoothie. I find smoothie bowls more filling and more satisfying since it feels more like a meal. I’m just not a huge fan of drinking my meals unless I’m on the go!

Another important thing to note is that the frozen banana is key! A frozen banana adds the thickness a smoothie bowl needs, not … Read More

“Do you like waffles?”
“Yeah we like waffles!”

So goes the chanting from the kitchen the minute the waffle iron appears. There are cheers. There are wide eyes. There are squeals of delight. Now imagine when you’ve offered them up as a cookie snack.

We are well versed in the language of #willitwaffle around here, and yes, there are some things that certainly will NOT waffle. These cookies, however, were made to waffle. Any traditional waffle iron will do the trick, no fancy waffling press needed.

Grilled Turmeric Ginger Shrimp and Mango Avocado Slaw with Cilantro Lime Dressing Recipe: Food for My Family
We skipped spring in Minnesota. We went from snow-covered and frozen straight into blue skies, brilliant sunshine, and humidity without warning. With no air conditioning, our best option for nearly every warm evening without rain is cooking and eating outside. Our grill and patio become our kitchen, and we have officially moved family dinners to the backyard.

While there’s plenty of traditional fare that happ… Read More

Recent outfits + my go-to stores

A round up of recent summer outfits with lots of shorts, easy-to-wear tanks, fun dresses, and comfy shoes (a mandatory). I also shared a few of my favorite workout outfits for running, lifting and yoga!

How on earth is it mid-August?!?!?! I mean, on the one hand I’m a little over these hot, humid days, but I’m also a bit disturbed that kids are starting school again already. Never mind that I don’t personally have kids – it still marks time.

Even though I now work from home, I get ready every day (a question I get asked often on Instagram!). I don’t necessarily wear office attire – I definitely couldn’t wear denim shorts in Corporate America – but I always put on real clothes and do my makeup. It helps me stay focused, and I feel better when I do, even if I don’t see a soul all day.

Getting ready also makes it easier to grab a last minute coffee or lunch with a friend if I’m dressed and ready. And work… Read More
