Easy Peasy Shrimp Ceviche

A few months back my friend Angie brought the most amazing Shrimp Ceviche to game night. I helped myself to several servings and she took home an empty bowl. Meanwhile, the cheese and gluten-free crackers went untouched. That's a sign of a good recipe. I'm a simple cook. If you take a look at my recipes, I don't cook or bake anything that really requires any amount of work. Well except for my tamales. Those take a little bit extra effort in the kitchen. So, when Angie said how Easy Peasy the Shrimp Ceviche was to make, I was all […]

Cranberry Pumpkin Bars

A very sweet member of our Healthy Living With Essential Oils team sent me a huge box of the most beautiful fresh cranberries. Her family owns a cranberry farm in Oregon and they are in the midst of harvest. One of the cool things about Oregon cranberry growers, is that they pursue natural pest control, flooding the beds of cranberries to repel harmful insects, instead of using harmful pesticides. When the fresh cranberries arrived, I quickly rinsed them and then put them in freezer bags for storage. I've got enough cranberries to enjoy for many months to come. And my […]

Mexican Hot Chocolate

My paternal grandparents immigrated from Mexico, coming to the United States and eventually, settling in Minnesota at a young age. My grandma still in her late teens and grandpa in his early twenties, worked their way from Mexico to Minnesota via the railroad. I was in the 4th grade when my grandma died in her 60's. However, I have very vivid memories of her in the kitchen making flour tortillas at the kitchen table and offering us grandkids the most delicious hot chocolate. As a kid, I thought she had some super secret recipe, only to find out later in […]

Working on our Divorce

Recently, Tom and I went to a conference, where we spent two full days setting goals for the 7 F's of life; faith, family, field, finance, fitness, friends, and fun. During the goal setting exercise for family, one of the presenters told his painful story of divorce, and made this bold statement, “If your aren't working on your marriage, by default, you are working on your divorce.” If you are married, let that sink in for a minute. If you aren't working on your marriage, by default, you are working on your divorce. Yikes! That was a punch in the […]

Give Yourself an Upgrade

You can still be original, while giving yourself an upgrade. Some people push back on the concept of personal development because they believe they’d need to become someone different. Personal development isn’t about becoming someone new, it’s just about becoming a better version of who you are. The iPhone is an iPhone, whether it’s the first iPhone, or iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 is just better. Apple is on the constant pursuit of improvement, which is why they were happy about launching the iPhone, but not satisfied with it “as is.” Think about personal growth as upgrading the true you, not […]
