I've been on a bit of a spinach kick lately, adding it to just about everything we've eaten in the past week or so. I guess you could say I've been channelling my inner Popeye! But even without Popeye's recommendation, spinach contains more nutrients per calorie than a...

As 2014 comes to a close, I decided to reflect on this past year. It's been a phenonmenal year for us, jam-packed with adventures, milestones and some pretty darn good eats! In June of 2014, this blog sprang to life and since that time, we've had over 10,000 page views...
