The Hildegard Experiment

Catholic, Food

It’s the first full week of Lent, when the fervor of Ash Wednesday starts to die down and we wonder what we really signed ourselves up for. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m eating like St. Hildegard this Lent. I know many of you are wondering what that exactly means, and maybe some […]


The Whole30 For Wimps


Let me start by saying, if I would have been doing the Whole30 last week while Fulton was hospitalized I would’ve failed MISERABLY.

Lent is off to a great start. (And by great, I mean great for Lent.) I know I said I wouldn’t bore you with talk of my Whole30, and for the most part I’m keeping all relevant discussion to my Facebook group, but I thought I would post an update on what it’s been like, […]

For 12 days following Christmas day, as in the traditional carol, we are encouraged to celebrate with all the gusto the rest of the world partook in […]


The Bacon Bar Is Open


I apologize in advance if reading this post makes you want to booze up in the A.M. I recommend waiting until at least 3 p.m. before busting out the cocktail shaker and taking these beverages for a test drive. No matter how “breakfasty” they may seem, at 70 proof, Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon liquor will […]


The Meal Planner


Who doesn’t love the look of a fresh meal plan stuck to the front of the fridge? Nothing says ‘competent mature adult’ like the ability to plan a week of dinners.If you search the web or Pinterest you’ll see no shortage of menus, planners, tips, printables, etc to help you transition your life from one […]
