Our Story: Part 1

Today’s post is the first in my series on Godly relationships and family life. I thought I would start by sharing our story with you — how Ben and I met and got married, for this first part.

Wooden Blocks: How-to

As many of you know, we’ve been working on a homemade Christmas this year. I’ll put a final update on all the projects that we did in a few days, but wanted to share one project with you now. We made a set of wooden blocks for my nephew, using only a few common household tools. The rest of this was written by Ben, the one who actually made the blocks! Enjoy the project!

Recipe Collection: Baked Ravioli

I made this for dinner this week and it was yummy! So I thought I’d share with you. 🙂 It’s also a GREAT real food recipe. Lots of pastured eggs, grass-fed beef, whole grain flour, raw milk cheese (if you want; we still can’t do dairy).

Recipe Collection: Gluten-Free Christmas Cookies

Well, the recipe I have for you this week isn’t quite what I’d intended. I’d wanted the cookies to be a bit chewy, or tender and crumbly. But they’re not. They’re soft and very much cake-like. But they are still delicious! I don’t know that they are necessarily “Christmas cookies” but they are light, vanilla little miracles…so good enough. 🙂


Recipe Collection: Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread, and Surprise!

Who doesn’t love pumpkin bread in the fall? It’s a great holiday treat. I made this bread today for Thanksgiving (it’s evening and most people have gone home now) and it was SO good that my mom wanted the recipe and some of the bread to take to work to share with her coworkers. She said, “I’m not usually into all the healthy cooking you do, but this bread is great!” Can’t even tell it’s gluten-free. 🙂 Dairy free, too, unless you add cream cheese frosting! We didn’t, so I don’t have a recipe for that, but it’s really great just by itself.


I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben.  I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything.  I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!
