It only makes sense that a site called, You Bet Your Pierogi has a recipe for Pierogi, right? For those of you who are not of Eastern European descent or have not had the pleasure of knowing what pierogi are, read my post about them here.  You can for sure buy them in the frozen section of the grocery stores, but I like to make my own from scratch the way my ancestors did before mass food production and industrialized farming. Once you see how simple it is, you can totally do the same. PLUS, isn’t it better to make something that you know exactly what is going in it and not worry about preservatives and artificial flavorings? The dough is only THREE ingredients: water,egg & flour.  (more…)

Hosting Mother’s Day Brunch — Recipe & Decor Ideas

It’s that time again to show your Mom just how special she really is. In my opinion, pet-mom’s count too! Nico, if you’re reading this! 😉

Whole30: Final Week Review

Is it already Day 30?!! ….of the program that felt like it would last for 100 days!  I am on to the fast-paced reintroduction phase and I am pretty excited! Honestly, I had to check the calendar like 3 times to be sure the 30 days was over. Once you get the hand of it, it kind of just goes by quickly 🙂

Am I glad I did this? Kinda. Do I think that I feel so much better without eating ____? Not really. Have I learned more about my body and food from this experience? Absolutely.
