QUICHE TREAT DAY RECIPE

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. Quiche is so worth the wait and leaves us filled and satisfied. The best part is, they are so easy to make. Enjoy our...

VW BUS MOTOR FIX

SPAGHETTI SQUASH RECIPE

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. Sometimes we like to cut them thinly, other times, nice and chunky. We pair them with homemade ketchup and even like to go wild...

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. It cleans the mouth and makes our teeth shiny and smooth. We use virgin, unrefined coconut oil every once and a while in our...

COMBAT DOLPHINS?

It’s one thing to sick a dog on someone, but a dolphin? It’s true, they are considered one of the smartest animals on Earth and highly evolved, which is why it disturbs us they are being used in warfare. Supposedly, back in the sixties the Navy studied...

When it comes to curries, this one hits the spot! The potatoes melt, the peas stand out and everything is alright in the world. It’s such a comforting dish and is one we enjoy often. It reminds us of when we worked in New York City. We’d meet for lunch at...

OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE

It’s absolutely amazing, how every night we leave our bodies in a state of paralysis and travel through an aether of mystery. Hours later, poof, we return in the morning to yet another day of earthly experience. It’s like being reborn each day. The...
