Where did September go?! I mean, I’m ready for October, but geez. 

I am…so…excited. Because our sweet potatoes are THRIVING! They did well last year, but we had to move them to a new location in the yard and I wasn’t sure if they would do as well where we put them this year. But, girl, they proved me wrong. Would you look at those sweet potato plants? Obviously the sweet potatoes are underground, but these plants grew from some of the sweet potatoes we planted last year! (more…)

I’ve gotta admit, I don’t eat as much dairy as I used to.

I guess I do use sour cream, cheese, and yogurt on a somewhat daily basis, but I don’t habitually drink a glass of milk every morning anymore. Now I’m used to using dairy alternatives like coconut milk.

I didn’t ever think I’d ever be making a substitute for whipped cream out of coconut milk, but here I am. And I’m sure there are a few of you out there who can’t consume dairy products, in which case—this tutorial is for you.

When I was younger, I would play with playdough for hours, mixing colors together, pretending to make cupcakes, and eating a little here and there. Ahhh, those were the good days…

But now that I am aware of the harmful chemicals and artificial dyes, I’m glad none of my younger siblings ever play with it. Not we have it in the house anymore. It has long since been thrown out.

Still, the experience of playing the playdough is something that can’t be missed out on. Especially if there are young children in your home who want to help cook in the kitchen, but aren’t capable.

Jalapeño Popper Pizza

Jalapeño Popper Pizza | Natural Chow | http://naturalchow.com

You could say that I’m on a spicy, cheesy food kick. I mean, after I made that Chipotle Gouda Queso Dip last week, it’s been one of the only things on my mind. What can I say? I’m a girl who likes spicy, cheesy foods. Pizza was on the menu plan for dinner yesterday and I had a lonely little jalapeño sitting in my fridge, begging to used—so making a jalapeño popper pizza was an absolute must.

Once I had the idea into my head, it was all I could think about all day. And once I finished a slice, I suddenly wished I had made another pizza. Seriously. There was no way I was getting a second piece once my family had a taste of it.
