detox bath | kumquat

when you have littles, school-aged especially, it’s a matter of when not if someone’s getting sick.

Apple Pie Quinoa Bake {gluten-free} | kumquat

i am decidedly not a morning person.

there are few things i look forward to in the sunrise hours than a really hot cup of strong coffee and the hopes of a few more winks of sleep.

to celebrate those 54 months, the redux ladies have challenged us to make something from the 54th page (or 154th page, if needed) of our nearest cookbook.
