Grain Free Blueberry Lemon Scones from www.EverydayMaven.com

We haven't been doing a lot of adventures since baby number two came along - mostly because of his nap schedule and also because I am still pumping every four hours or so. It's really been hard and truthfully, has taken a toll on all of us but I know that this time will pass and … [Read more...]

Turmeric Cilantro Magic Sauce

Turmeric Cilantro Magic Sauce from www.EverydayMaven.com

I seriously struggled with what to call this Turmeric Cilantro Magic Sauce. It's not quite a chimichurri, way too far away from a pesto, and a bit different than what I would consider a green sauce.  What it is though, is good. On everything. No joke. Broken record … [Read more...]

Spiced Mango Popsicles with Ginger

Spiced Mango Popsicles with Ginger from www.EverydayMaven.com

It's been H-O-T here. I'm talking upper 70's and low 80's since May, which, for Seattle, is a bit strange. The warm summer weather doesn't usually reliably kick in until right around July 4th. Now, don't get me wrong - I am not complaining. Not at all. I live for this weather … [Read more...]

How To Make Elderberry Syrup

How To Make Elderberry Syrup from www.EverydayMaven.com

When it comes to winter preparedness in my house, one thing that I almost always stock up on is Elderberry Syrup. I have found that the real brands (not mixed berry blends - just elderberry!) are pretty expensive even when bought in bulk. I am so sick of paying $15 to $18 per … [Read more...]

Quick Crispy Home Fries

Quick Crispy Home Fries from www.EverydayMaven.com

There is nothing like good crispy home fries. A couple of weeks ago, I was making breakfast and mentioned to my mom that I felt like having home fries but didn't feel like waiting 45 minutes for the potatoes to cook properly. She asked me why I didn't par-cook the potatoes in the … [Read more...]
