April 9, 2015 Tara Joy 0

Just recently I have decided to take my health into my own hands and change the way I eat. Since I don’t have hyperthyroidism or T3 toxicity severe enough to treat I have to decide to test out Hippocrates quote: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” My friend and health aficionado, Marie invited me to a study she was leading called Read Pray Move by Christa Cordova  (click to check it out!) along side Christa the author of the Bible Study herself. Christa challenges us for 40 days to give up  Gluten, Dairy, Sweets, Caffeine, and Processed [Continue Reading…]

How to Make Homemade Squeezable Fruit and Veggie Purees

April 2, 2015 Tara Joy 0

  Do your kids eat their veggies? Mine doesn’t! Oh goodness it has always been such a fight to even get it remotely close to his mouth to try it. I don’t know why he just won’t eat them, its probably the inner radar of kids that screams Healthy Alert! when a vegetable gets close. We have had to get creative and seek ways to sneak them into his food, but with only a limited range of food he liked I could only serve him spaghetti with veggie sauce so many times! We finally found the squeezable veggie and fruit [Continue Reading…]

My husband doesn’t like sweets. It makes it hard when I LOVE sweets  but I don’t feel like making a whole amount of something if I am the only one eating it.  So when I created the only ONE sweets recipe that will be gone before I even get a second slice, I knew I would be making it often! Good thing is so incredibly simple!   Raspberry Key Lime Pie, yummy goodness! And it is SO easy!   Graham Cracker Crust (or you could just buy one) 10 Graham Crackers – crushed, smashed, crumbled 6 tablespoons of melted Butter  [Continue Reading…]

Brown Sugar, Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

November 26, 2014 Tara Joy 9

I love pinterest.  I love being able to try new recipes that others have created. Some turn out great , some need a little tweaking and others are a complete pinterest fail.  When I came across this Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus I thought I would give it a try for when my mom came over for dinner.  It was so delicious, but it needed a little tweaking to make it the way that my family liked it.  Less Sweet, More Bacon.  Brown Sugar Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus Serves: 6 Bacon Bundles.  For Printable Recipe, Click Here.  Ingredients:  1 Bundle of washed and trimmed asparagus  [Continue Reading…]

October 15, 2014 Tara Joy 2

I love pumpkin, all things pumpkin. Pumpkin rolls, muffins, bread, cookies, if its pumpkin I’ll love it!  The problem though is that canned pumpkin is expensive, $3-4 dollars for a few cups of pumpkin puree  can add up if you want to make all things pumpkin during the fall and going into winter season.  So we decided to try something for the first time, and found that you can make 15 Cups of  Pumpkin Puree & 2 Cups of Roasted Pumpkin Seeds for only $5. Yup thats right, $5! I sure love being thrifty!  Here is how to get the [Continue Reading…]

September 17, 2014 Tara Joy 0

With my husband and I being married only a few years and having a 2 year old, we haven’t had time or finances to go all out and decorate our apartment. We have our vision, and little by little we will make it all come to fruition.  Knowing my love of sewing and the color scheme for the kitchen, my mother in law picked up this super cute fabric from a yard sale or something. It used to be living room curtains so there was more than enough to make small kitchen curtains!  I love the country style kitchen look [Continue Reading…]

Tofu Veggie Lasagna Rolls Ups

August 7, 2014 Tara Joy 0

As a family of 3, we try to limit the amount of leftovers that we have by only making what is enough for one dinner, and maybe the next day’s lunch.  By doing this it saves money and doesn’t waste food.  Since we enjoy having spaghetti almost every week I decided to attempt lasagna for the first time. It turned out great but by the end we had half a box of uncooked lasagna noodles to use up!  I would normally make enough to freeze but our freezer right now doesn’t seem to want to do its job so that [Continue Reading…]

July 10, 2014 Tara Joy 4

I know the past few posts have been very scripture heavy, so I wanted to share some other things that I enjoy. Since this blog is called Faith In Everyday I will be including posts on things going on in my life, recipes that my family enjoys and encouraging words.  Our family does a “Brinner” (Breakfast for Dinner) at least once every two weeks. I personally could have breakfast food anytime, I love it. So, the other day we decided to do pancakes for Brinner, but my husband had the great idea to make them like crepes. He is always [Continue Reading…]
