Burritos - Kohler Created

Look, it’s baby’s first Christmas tree! We were only one string of lights short, which Neil was running out to grab when this picture was taken. Despite the fact that she’s looking the other way, she LOVES looking at the tree. I hate that it’s always Wednesday or Thursday before I clear my plate enough […]

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

Pho - Kohler Created

Fact: The weeks go by SUPER quickly when you are going to bed with your kid before 9pm. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing, but when you are getting at least 6 hours a night, I’m going to call win for the time being — even if it feels like you’re […]

Old School Blogging

Food prep - Kohler Created

I thought I’d just do some old-school rambling. You know, blogging just for the sake of sharing thoughts and feelings — totally unsponsored and unaffiliated. There’s not enough of that going on anymore. My baby is 12 weeks old. Let that sink in for a minute. Wasn’t she just born yesterday!? She keeps hitting all […]

Easy recipes for garden peppers

Easy Recipes for Garden Peppers - Kohler Created

Confession: I don’t have a green thumb. We have kind of a running schtick with both mine and Neil’s parents. They grow the food, we preserve and use the food. I just lack patience and commitment needed to have a successful garden. I do however love to dork out in the kitchen, and love trying […]

Catch-up Weekend

Baby Room - Plummage

I’m tempted to call the past two weeks “the lost weeks.” Between the storm damage and then getting the worst cold I’ve had in two years, it’s caused almost complete standstill life. State Farm ended up denying our appeals, so we’re paying for our roof damage out-of-pocket and switching companies. At this point I wish I could […]

LUNA Protein Bar Review & Taste Trial

Luna Protein Bar Review

I’ll be honest, I am a little behind on the latest and greatest energy/protein bar market. I typically always eat food within 30 minutes of workouts and tote my own food if travel. At most I’ve bought a few Lara bars for some road trips. It’s just the reality of being on a mostly Paleo […]

Sourdough English Muffins

Homemade English Muffins - Kohler Created

We’ve done a little shake-up with breakfast over the past two weeks. My sourdough starter, “Kenny” (v2) was slowly starting to degrade, so I wanted to make one more batch of bread with him before completely starting over. I’m bummed, but I can’t seem to figure out what his issue was. More on that after the recipe. […]

House project baby steps

Easy Quiche - Kohler Created

Huge working weekend for us last weekend preparing the house for baby, alternatively titled “stuff we should have done much sooner.” And while we didn’t get it all done, we definitely covered a lot of ground. After coaching my favorite 8 AM Free CrossFit class on Saturday morning and a breakfast of egg burritos, we […]

25-26 Weeks Pregnant: This and That

27 weeks pregnant - Kohler Created

Sorry for the slow week. We’ve had a rush of freelance projects that needed attention. More work is never a bad thing, but it always displaces the things I seem to enjoy doing with my already limited spare time pretty quickly. As such, I though I’d throw together a little mish-mash of random thoughts, pregnancy “symptoms” […]

My Go-to Banana Bread

My Go-To Banana Bread Recipe - No Refined Sugar! |

Neil is not big on sweets, but he loves when I bake him muffins or quick breads for his weekday breakfasts. His standout favorite is definitely banana bread, and with all the bananas I’m not eating anymore (trying to avoid excess sugar), the ones deemed “too brown” have now filled the top drawer in the […]
