Oh, how my mouth is watering… I believe that nourishing our bodies and our spirits are among my most important responsibilities as a parent. Every delicious meal means another full belly ready to take on the day. This food is my gift to my family, every day. We don’t spend our money on fancy cars or designer clothes, we choose instead to focus our resources on nourishing ourselves with pure, whole foods. All of these scrumptious images were taken by me on my iPhone 4 and came directly from my Instagram feed. They are only the icing on the cake, so to speak. I post many drool-worthy images of the food both Eric and I create every day. I encourage you to follow me (@cedarmama) or to drop by my gallery to browse if you are curious to learn more about where I find my inspiration or for the links to many of the recipes I use. I love the wonderful community of encouragement and support I’ve found there — you are most welcome to join our foodie tribe!

a quick mid-morning snack, juicy organic raspberries, pistachios and slivered apricots drizzled with local raw honey. so. good.
