This was the first week of the Pepper Place Farmer's Market in Birmingham. I was so excited about this day, and I was not disappointed. The place was filled with vendors from all over the area selling fresh, high quality products. Check out these pastured eggs I grabbed from Marble Creek Farmstead . I could hardly wait to get home and make something fun with them! So without further adieu, here is my recipe for Clean Eating Egg Salad!

Tonight I am going to an amazing event with The Birmingham Girls Club . Through this club, I have met some amazing women! This is my second event to attend since becoming a member, and I can't wait!

Sweetened Condensed Cashew Milk

I have been making cashew milk at home for years because of the healthy fats and the natural calming properties. So, you can imagine my delight when I discovered that Silk had started carrying their own Cashew Milk! I'm sure it will be nice to purchase pre-made non GMO cashew milk on those occasions that I do not have time to make it myself. I usually try to avoid store bought sweetened, condensed milk because of al the additives and processing. So I thought why not make a sweetened, condensed milk with the Cashew Milk I have on hand? It turned out quite delicious! I can't wait to make a...

Amber is a school teacher who holds a Master of Education (M.Ed.) and a BS in Early Childhood Education and...

Today I have a delightful recipe to share with you! It is perfect to whip up when you have a party to attend this Holiday season. This recipe is adapted from Anne Byrn Saves the Day , a cookbook with fantastic recipes designed to "rescue any occasion". I had the privilege of going to a live demo of this recipe and have been wanting to try it out ever since. The original recipe calls for cream cheese. I chose to use whole fat greek yogurt, as most store bought cream cheeses do not have a very clean ingredient list. (Sidenote> I have learned that you can substitue healthy whole fat greek...
