Make Your Own Delicious Chocolate Candy with Coconut Butter

Coconut Chocolate Candy

I love chocolate candy, there's no doubt, but I have a hard time eating commercial candy, because it's often times filled with junk.  I created a delicious recipe with only all-natural, organic ingredients.  I used coconut butter, which is also called coconut cream concentrate.  Coconut butter is finely ground coconut meat with no additives and great for cooking!  You can add nuts, coconut flakes, fruit, or just about anything to this recipe and get cute little silicon candy molds and you're set for all [...]

Whole Food Crock Pot Recipes for Delicious Sunday Dinners

Sundays are always chaotic for this family.  We wake up, quickly eat and get ready for church, and are out the door without even thinking about lunch or dinner.  I would love to have lunch ready to eat when we get home from church, or be able to throw something into the Crock Pot between [...]

Easy Oven S'mores - Life With Captain Fussybuckets

I'm a sucker for quick snacks and desserts.  I want to have s'mores without waiting to go camping and microwave s'mores and s'mores-like recipes just aren't the same.  My guys love my easy oven s'mores and I know you will, too!  The beauty of making them in the oven is that the marshmallows brown, just like if you were sitting in front of a campfire.  I also use chocolate chips because I usually don't buy chocolate [...]

I rarely have time to bake a whole cheesecake and really, I don't need a whole one for just Hubby and I to devour by ourselves.  But, we do really love cheesecake!  Recently, I made some yummy fruit dip for our Superbowl party and it was simply delcious.  It is made in just a few minutes, with cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.  Well, as I was eating what was left, I had an idea to put a yummy pretzel crust underneath it and call it [...]

Ocean Naturals

Our family loves tuna fish.  I always feel a bit guilty about eating it, however, because of the fact that most tuna fish is not responsibly caught and fishing for tuna harms dolphins.  Ocean Naturals is changing the way I think about tuna.  The company promises to use only wild, responsibly caught seafood and they are a proud supporter of the Earth Island Institute and all of their products [...]

Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Fall is my favorite season, for many reasons.  My top three reasons all involve the foods that are in season during the fall:  apples, pumpkins, and delicious cranberries.  For so long, I bought the canned cranberry sauce but last year I wondered to myself how hard it could possibly be to make cranberry sauce and you know, it's pretty easy AND homemade cranberry sauce tastes SO much better than anything you could ever buy in a can!

I just found cranberries [...]

The Fancy Dinner {and a Potato Bacon Soup recipe!}

fancy dinner

Last night, the Captain and I were talking about dinner.  I had some bacon that I needed to cook, so I thought that maybe we would have Potato Bacon Soup, since it's one of Daddy's favorites.  The Captain got the idea to turn our regular, ordinary dinner into a "Fancy Dinner," where we wear fancy clothes and have decorations on the table.  I wasn't sure where this was going, but I let him take over the table prep while I made the soup.  

Get this…..he cleared off the kitchen table, which is his arts [...]
