I love my Instant Pot.  My mom gave it to me for Christmas two years ago, but it took me a couple of months to finally use it.  I had wanted one for a long time, but when it got down to it, I found it a bit intimidating.  I finally got on YouTube and […]

Written in partnership with California Avocados. Bibimbap (“bee-beem-bawp”)…saw that 4 times fast and see if it doesn’t put a smile on your face.  It does mine!  It’s just a fun word.  But it’s an even better dish and one of my all-time favorite foods!  It’s a Korean rice bowl, and I’ve got a reimagined version […]

This post is a collaboration with Lightlife. It has been hot, hot, hot this summer.  August is about the time that I no longer want to even look at my stove, let along my oven.  It’s just too darn hot and I’m sick of the heat.  So I usually convince Mr. Fuji to do some […]

Cashew Butter Veggie Pasta—a quick and easy meal that is helping me survive insanity.  Life with a 10-year-old, an 8-year-old, and a 5-month-old and a husband needing to travel a lot for work would be crazy enough on its own, but add in living out of boxes and commuting while we build a house?  Now that […]

This post is brought to you by Kamikoto Knives. I love things served in bowls.  Now, I know this has been a bit of a trend, at least here in the US, but my love for bowls goes way back.  This is probably why I love Japanese donburi so much.  A donburi, put simply, is […]

I know the calendar says that it is officially spring, but Mother Nature can’t seem to make up her mind here in Utah!  We will have one or two glorious days of spring weather and then a cold front will swoop in and send me scrambling to dig out my winter coat again.  All this […]

Vegan Fuji Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili

Life with a newborn isn’t what I was remembering/expecting . . . it’s actually so much easier.  Maybe it’s that I know what to expect and my other children are older? Maybe it’s that I’m not exhausted from nine months of pregnancy and having to recover from another c-section?  Or maybe it’s just that our […]
