Paleo Peach Muffins

Category: 
Welcome back to Monday Munchies! This time of year I absolutely love going to my local farmers market. One of my favorite things is to wake up early and get to the market before the crowds. I love strolling through the booths and seeing all of the beautiful hand made items, delicious produce and locally sourced eggs of all different colors. Now that it's June peaches are starting to show up at lots of the booths. Peaches hold a special place in my heart. As a child when I would travel to Rena Lara, Missippi we would walk down to my aunt's house and pick peaches from her orchard. I remember...

As I sit on my front porch this morning I hear birds chirping, train horns blowing, neighbors rushing off to work. I see my knock out roses, my azaleas, my mints, and my cottage flowers. It smells like Spring. I am extremely aware of the fact that today I am embarking on a new part of the journey. 30. My twenties are gone. Oh, what fun and turmoil those twenties were. So many bad decisions. But, I don't hate them. As the sun begins to peak through the clouds all around me, I am aware that 30 is a chance to start fresh. Leave my twenties in the dust. But, how could I? They taught me so much. I...

There is nothing like going home. This past weekend, I went to Rena Lara, Mississippi. Population- 97. This is one of the places I consider "home". My grandparents have lived here for over 80 years. Every Summer growing up, I remember our family trips to the Delta (the flat lands). We would wake up early to go fishing with grandad on a lake connected to the Mississippi River. We would play with our cousins, watch every Disney movie, and eat the best food in the world. My grandmother passed away a couple of years ago and I miss her so much. This visit last weekend, I had the opportunity to...
