Cabbage Slaw with Cilantro Lime Dressing (

Now that we’ve turned the calendar to March, I can officially talk about how much I’m craving spring. My warm and sun-soaked vacation comes to an end today. It’s been such a treat to escape the Wisconsin winter for a bit. As I take to the skies and head home today, I’m crossing my fingers […]

How To Make Fermented Vegetables |

Hello and Happy August! I’m back in action after a three week blogging break. I tried not to think about blogging too much while I took some time away from my screen, but why is that when you purposefully tell your mind not to think about something it naturally goes there? I’m glad to be […]

Beets n' Sweets Kale Salad |

Kale salad and books. Those are the topics of today’s discussion. And they happen to be two of my faves. Perhaps it’s the long days or lazier pace of summer weekends, but I’m all the way into reading lately. I currently have about half a dozen books scattered around the house that I pick up […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp with Oatmeal Walnut Topping |

My dad is pretty much the best guy ever (which you probably already know from this post), and so to celebrate I made him Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp! My dad is cool without being the stuffy kind of cool. He’s smart, kind, humorous, and eager to learn—but it all comes off naturally and never seems forced. […]

One of the first recipes I shared here in the early days of Daily Bites was for my Carrot Cake Bites. I’ve been making them ever since, so I thought it was time to resurrect the recipe from the archives, tweak a few things, snap some (way better) new photos and share with you Carrot […]

Strawberry Pie Milkshake |

I have my plans. If ever there was a planner, it’s me. Color coded calendars, deadlines in place, plane tickets booked far in advance…check, check, and check! Here’s a guilty confession: I even plan when I’m going to plan. I set aside time in my day to plan out other days. I also frequently plan […]
