Hi, I’m Kari!

I am a wife, food blogger, health coach, and mama to a hot mess of a border collie. I love to put a new spin on old family recipes, and I try to make as many meals as possible with an Instant Pot.

Spring Favorites

As it starts to warm up, we look forward to fresh veggies, boiled crawfish, and going fishing. Our homegrown asparagus is starting to grow like crazy, so I have been roasting asparagus with lemon at least once a week with fried catfish, and it has been delicious! Honeysuckle is starting to bloom and I can’t wait!

I love taking our favorite Southern recipes and remaking them with a Paleo spin to them. We are huge fans of Southern Food at our house, so the better it is for us, the better we feel about eating it.
