The Essential Cracker: Quinoa, Flax + Poppyseed (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

May 21, 2015

So I’m pretty excited about this one. A few weeks ago, if you’d told me I’d be happily crafting my own crackers right here at home, I’d likely have dismissed such a statement as well, pretty silly.

January 3, 2015

If 2014 was the year of complication, then I hereby declare 2015 the year of simplicity. Simpler words and more time for the things we love to do. Run, cook, read, walk, love. Joy is my goal this year and I’m well on the way so far – I’m looking forward to sharing a lighter sentiment this year as I attempt … Read More
