Happy Pi Day! We're actually going to celebrate tomorrow or later this week, and I'm going to make a pumpkin pie. 😋 If you'd like a really good pumpkin pie recipe, I've got one on Buttered Side Up - search the archives. #ButteredSideUp #PiDay

FIRST OF ALL: Thank you so much for all of the lovely comments on my previous post. You guys are so sweet! SECOND: If you can get your hands on some blood oranges, make this cake! It's so so good. Get the recipe on Buttered Side Up (link in bio). Thanks to @estherivy for suggesting I make an olive oil cake. And thanks to @hannahqueen for the scrumptious recipe. #ButteredSideUp #Cake #bloodorange

I decided that it was high time that I had a profile picture that was related to my profession. Since it's so dark in our basement apartment, I had to wait for a Saturday afternoon when we weren't doing anything so Reuben could focus the camera for me. He also made me laugh lots. He claimed it was to make me smile naturally. .
Which do you prefer: this one with me holding the mixing bowl, or the one in my profile with me holding butter? 😁
.
Also, I'm thinking of doing a(an?) FAQ on Buttered Side Up - have any questions you'd like me to answer?

A random lunch: leftover romaine and tomatoes with homemade mayo, homemade French bread toasted + topped with grass-fed butter, and half w/peanut butter (not super natural), my dad's honey, and banana, a side of sauerkraut, and a glass of whole milk. #randomlunch #grassfedbutter

Helen is four! She's so spunky and opinionated and sweet and quite the handful (she has been since birth). You can watch a little interview I did with her over on Simple Days (ericalea.com). #helenadelaide

Sometimes (most of the time), cooking with kids is a hassle. Sometimes, I have to hold James while I work unless I want him complaining at me the whole time. Sometimes I get fed up and tell Helen to stay out of the kitchen (I don't want to turn my back for a moment and find that she's stuck her fingers in the food I'm planning to serve to other people). And sometimes, I just embrace it and enjoy cooking with my little munchkins. I'm looking forward to the day when this all pays off and Helen makes supper. 😬

These are the cupcakes that I made for Jim's first birthday! I used green banana flour for the first time...Jim loved it! Get the recipe for these healthy baby cupcakes on the blog...
