This easy green smoothie bowl is creamy from the avocado and packed full of healthy greens and fruits. Top it with almonds, chia seeds and chopped fruit for the perfect start to your day!

avocado-smoothie-bowl-2I have to be honest….I finally caved you guys. I made a smoothie bowl. The concept of this strange concoction seems frankly weird to me….I get smoothies. Green, COLD, creamy and packed full of good for me vibes. I get bowls of yogurt with granola and blueberries with their crunchy sweet crunch and swirls of purple juices.

But smoothie bowls? Mmm. I have a thing with textures and this just screamed all things wrong in my head. Why? I don’t know. They aren’t that far removed. Perhaps it was the idea of a smoothie and a spoon. View full post »

      Dani Meyer - Totally Kita! They are delicious (as is to be expected haha). I am not sure the brand but I found them in the freezer section at Costco.ReplyCancel

Chicken thighs and peaches are tossed on the grill, smothered in tangy BBQ sauce and served over cauliflower rice. Lazy summer dining at its finest.

bbq-chicken-with-grilled-peachesSummer peaches are in and we can’t stop buying them. A good peach is hard to resist biting into and letting the juices drip down your face so I won’t judge if that’s all you can do with the first bushel. But once that is finished promise me that you will grill some this year!

    Debra S - Oh this sounds SO good. You know what, however? I’m completely devastated lately at the hybrid produce we are offered. I have not bought a peach fresh in a couple of years, for the ones in the store are NOT fuzzy, not good in the least way. Hard, tasteless. Why are they foisting these on us? Only fit for hog food.
    I want the old fashioned super fuzzy juice peaches back.ReplyCancel

      Dani Meyer - So agree! We have decent luck with farmers markets or the produce stands here but I have yet to find peaches like what I remember as a kid getting right off the peach stands next to my grandparents. Peaches as big as my head it felt like and drippy all over your clothes.ReplyCancel

This beef gyro recipe is perfect for mixing up weeknight meal time! Strip steak gets sliced thin and marinated, then stuffed into pitas with hummus, cucumber yogurt sauce and tons of veggies.


Gyro’s are one of our all time favorite things to eat. But I don’t have lamb on hand routinely so it’s always been something that gets relegated to when we go out to eat. You know the kind….for the most part fancy dinners can’t be found here anymore but are instead exchanged for those quick little sneak “dates” while you bounce a baby and a toddler dances around your feet. The last time we found a place with good gyro’s was in Georgia and I’ve been pining ever since. View full post »

27 Healthy Slow Cooker RecipesHealthy slow cooker recipes are a busy person’s best friend. And in the summer when my unvented oven starts pouring heat out of the top of itself the second I turn it on? The crockpot starts getting pulled out more and more.

But the most popular slow cooker recipes are filled with canned soup and high fructose corn syrup packed sauces that we try to stay away from most of the time. No longer! Now we can the crockpot save the day and dive into these dishes any time of year without fear for our waistlines. All hail the glorious slow cooker! View full post »


I’m stopping in for possibly the biggest announcement ever on this blog (sans finding out I was pregnant of course). We officially have a studio!!!! And we are launching a real live e-commerce shop in September!! And food photography classes next year!

Let me slow down for a minute here and explain. You might have noticed we have been a bit quiet here the past few weeks and it is because we have been working hard to pull this dream into a reality. In a nutshell we are going to be launching into a full service e-shop to compliment our content!

We can’t wait to pull off the reveal cover to this shop that will be filled with the most amazing dishes and linens, silverware and aprons and all manner of cool/funky/vintage kitchen things we fall in love with! We are aiming for a launch date of September 15th if all goes well!

Just to give you a sampling here is your exclusive sneak peek of a few things that we have on order so far:


Fall over beautiful hand thrown ceramic plates.

cutting boards

Gorgeous sustainable cutting boards made right here in Oregon!


The best linen napkins & tablecloths & aprons in town.


Ridiculously gorgeous spoon rests

Plus we have so many vintage one of a kind finds piled up in our prop stash that we can’t wait to share with you! No more crying that you don’t have an antique store next to you!

Oh and did I mention that we are doing our best to source a TON of our products from hand made vendors or fair trade organizations? And that we will be packaging them in seriously gorgeous totally giftable packaging and shipping them straight to your door? <3 <3 <3

This is the shop that I want to spend all my extra money in and I hope it will be for you too! View full post »
