score a jar of really raw honey, completely free...

Whether you add a spoonful to your tea, drizzle some over oatmeal, or use it as a sugar substitute, honey is an indispensably sweet staple in most kitchens. You guys know I love it. But, if you’re used to buying honey that comes in the cute plastic bear bottle (my hand is raised), you’re not getting the best quality honey. 

If you’ve never tasted Really Raw Honey, you don’t know how honey is meant to taste. This unstrained, raw honey is the good stuff! Full of honeycomb, propolis, and pollen, raw, organic, and non-GMO, every spoonful of Really Raw Honey contains natural goodness. Plus, it delivers plenty of sweetness without the immediate blood sugar spike from refined sugar, making it a healthier choice for satisfying a sweet tooth.  Which makes me a happy gal because I love me some sweet! 

The flavor of this honey is worlds above the over-processed mainstream brands you’ll find on many grocery store shelves—and the accompanying nutritional benefits are even better. Really Raw Honey is not only organic and Paleo-friendly (score!!), but since it’s never processed or heated, it retains all kinds of health benefits. Liiiiiiike:

  • Can help alleviate seasonal allergies
  • Can boost the immune system
  • Soothes a sore throat
  • Slathering a bit of this honey on cuts and scrapes can help heal the skin 

An added bonus: Really Raw sources all of its honey from local beekeeping operations, and every jar is packaged by hand. That means every jar tastes just like the seasonal honey you’ll find at your local farmers market.

Ready to try a spoonful for yourself? Well, you’re in luck, because for a limited time, Thrive Market is offering all new customers a free jar of Really Raw Honey. Existing customers can get in on the fun, too—they’ll score a free jar with their next purchase over $50!

danielle walker's new 'celebrations' cookbook...

If you've been following along with my blog for a while, you know I am no stranger to Danielle Walker and her blog, Against All Grain and her first two cookbooks, 'Meals Made Simple' and 'Delectable Paleo Recipes'. I love, love, love the recipes Danielle comes up with and since being diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease a few months ago, have loved her recipes and encouragement even more.

i've been spending way too much free time on the gram...

Hey all!

Yes, yes, I'm still here. Told you I'd be in and out. I guess it's been mostly "out"... forgive me? #momlife

I've been getting more and more into Instagram (like I needed the help in the first place) and loving their new features, LIKE STORIES!!!! AGGGGGG!!! I can't quit the stories. I love making them and watching them. It's my little guilty pleasure at the end of the day. After we put Luke down and the house has been cleaned up, I grab a sweet little snack and my iPad and veg out on the couch for a good 20 minutes "watching my stories" as we call it. Not "my" stories- like the ones I might have made that day, but all the fun and quirky ones my friends and people I follow made! It's like I get to hang out with them! So fun.

Anyway if you're on the Gram, and happen to want to see my face (or things my face is doing, cooking, baking, loving, slurping, seeing, etc), make sure you're following me

sooooooo, where on earth have you been?!...

Dear, dear, dear friends...

I owe you the BIGGEST, loudest, most hug-filled, apology ever. 

When I got pregnant, I never in a million-trillion years thought that this last year would go the way it did. Yeah, sure, I figured I'd be waist high in dirty diapers and lack of sleep would turn me into a Mombie, but you was so much more.

small batch flourless gluten free chewy chocolate cookies...

Sometimes you need a chewy chocolate cookie like, yesterday. You don't have time to sit there and let butter come to room temperature, don't want to whip out the stand mixer, or heck- even your hand mixer. You just want to throw ingredients into a bowl, mix them together, and make a dang cookie.

These cookies are just that. They're quick, SUPER easy to make, use very little ingredients and ingredients you most likely already have at that. You know, because you rock. 

They're crispy around the edges, super chewy in the center- almost meringue like even. They're very chocolaty and even better with a few semi-sweet chocolate chips added to the mix. They're flourless which means they're also gluten free. Score. Share with your gluten free friends. Or not. Light, fluffy, gooey, quick, yummy and packed full of chocolate? Yes please. Yes.
