TURKEY MASSACRE

Last Thanksgiving we went to the supermarket and an employee told us the grocery had prepared itself with 10,000 turkeys ready for sale. This was at one store in the little port town in South Carolina we call home. Supposedly there are over 38,000 grocery stores in... TURKEY MASSACRE See the full post

We’ve made quiche together since we met each other back in 2005, but these days we only eat things like butter or dairy products on treat days.

TREAT DAY FRIES RECIPE

Treat days are a perfect excuse to enjoy homemade fries! They are so much better than any frozen fry from a restaurant or fast food joint.

This specific bread we purchased from an artisanal bread maker who... ARTISAN BREAD vs COMMERCIAL BREAD See the full post

TREAT DAY KIWI COCONUT BANANA BREAD RECIPE

When we realized we didn’t have any walnuts left for our treat day banana bread, we decided to make use of our last kiwi and some coconut flakes, by adding them to our mix.

COCONUT OIL BENEFITS

We’ve been enjoying the benefits of coconut oil for years. It’s a main ingredient we use in our homemade toothpaste and mouthwash, as it cleans the mouth and makes our teeth shiny and smooth. We’ve use extra virgin coconut oil every once and a while... COCONUT OIL BENEFITS See the full post

ALMOND COCONUT CREAM RECIPE

We’ve been steering away from animal products all together, but every once and a while we enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee and desire something creamy to go with it. Rather than using regular cream, we have fallen in love with the taste of our almond coconut... ALMOND COCONUT CREAM RECIPE See the full post

MUSHROOM ONION SOUP RECIPE

When the first chill of Fall hit, we were quick to cook up some hot soups! One of the easiest and most soothing soups we enjoy is our mushroom onion soup.
