Feels good to be back photographing these gorgeous vegetables and creating new recipes for the blog.  It’s been awhile.  I’ve been through quite a bit these past few weeks dealing with some of my own personal health issues and the craziness of being “COO” of this busy company called Family!   In the midst of it all, somehow I managed to help lead a minor “wellness coup” within my childrens’ school district.

If there is one particular type of processed food I really despise, it has to be store bought pancake mix.  Most mixes are high in sodium and contain artificial ingredients and preservatives.  My husband and I would actually experience nausea after eating certain brands in the past.  But…

When Alli, from Don’t Panic Mom, approached me with the brilliant idea of teaming up with other healthy food bloggers to create a campaign called LOVE HEALTHY, I jumped at the chance to be involved!  Together our mission is to promote healthier alternatives to celebrating Valentine’s Day, whether at home or at school. For me, Valentine’s Day is more about showing the LOVE you have for someone special, rather than pumping the sweet artificial stuff.  While a sweet treat is perfectly ok now and…
