Resolution Recipie 11: Big Breakfast Latkes


I haven’t posted in a little while because I’m still figuring out the blogging from my phone situation. I’m happy to report I actually find it easier since my pictures are on my phone anyways (behind the scenes spoiler…no fancy camera here!). Even though the posts have been on a short hiatus I have still…

Teething


Life has been a tad busy as of late. I haven’t been able to post anything recently because of my job ending and the tasks and errends that seemed to go along with that as well as a few days of fun and family mixed in meant I didn’t have time like I wanted to…

Resolution Recipe 10: Maple Bacon Biscuits


I’m loving this process of cooking through Deb’s cookbook again! Dusting it off to dive in again while in this new season of life has been good for my soul. I now have a person to cook for who will ooh and ahh over all the “hard” work I put into these recipes. And I…

My Reason


We made a decision. I guess we actually made it about a year ago but it was more just a goal, not actually a decision that would change something at that time. It’s funny to see how God works…I think this all began last August. Right after we got married. I went to a leadership…

Grace


My husband and I went to a marriage conference this past weekend. This is our 2nd year going to this conference and it’s crazy how much has happened since we last went. I’ve been so excited to get to go to these kinds of things my whole life! I signed us up for 2 marriage…

Resolution Recipe 9: Big Cluster Maple Granola


I love quick and easy recipes, don’t you?? This is one for the books when it comes to easy. But it does have some ingredients that you’re likely not going to have in your kitchen pantry. The ones I had to go buy were: dried cherries wheat germ pure maple syrup I definitely forgot to…

But….baby what will we do…?


Have you ever heard the song Watercolor Ponies by Wayne Watson? The chorus was playing through my head today and made me think… I’m a parent. I’m a mom. Wow. I’m in constant amazement of that fact. I have such an easy baby that most days I don’t really feel the work of it. But…

Resolution Recipe 8: Apricot Breakfast Crisp


We’re back! I’m really excited to have dusted off my cookbook and start back into working through it one recipe at a time. The last time I made one of these recipes was in 2014. That’s 3 years ago and when I was still dating my husband. A LOT of life has happened since then…

#momlife


I became a mom 12 weeks ago and it has been amazing and hard and gloriously transformative and I don’t think I really understand it all. But I love it. A lot. It was a hard start for me. I had the Baby Blues kick in for me about 4 days after I had my…

The Novice Life…blog revamp.


You may have already noticed the visual updates to the blog but I thought I should post about the title change and thoughts of what I hope this blog will morph into. Previously this blog was focused exclusively on cooking. I love writing and sharing about those kinds of posts and everything food! Good news…

Essential Oils & doTERRA Novice


So, I recently joined the doTERRA community and became a wellness advocate. Another novice status I apparently want to add to my resume is essential oil guru in training! There is so much out there about essential oils and I’m very interested in what they can offer our family since my husband and I prefer…
