Zen-tastic Homemade Play Dough

This summer is the summer of living out of our suitcases. People keep asking me how it’s going since we left Argentina in June with a few suitcases and no plans to move into our home until the end of August. My response is always the same: “It’s hard but it’s an awesomely mindful practice […]

Choose Your Own Adventure Paleo Pancakes by www.kulamama.com

  Breakfast is a big deal in our house for a few reasons.  First, my kids are usually very hungry in the morning when they wake up so it’s important I’m prepared to fill those empty tummies quickly.  And second, just like your grandma told you, breakfast is the most important meal as it sets your “blood […]

Spring is here (sort of) and I’m posting about squash, a winter vegetable.  I guess this just goes to show you how slow things are moving around here with two kids.  I’ve had this recipe sitting on my computer for a few months now.  Better late than never I say, and as luck would have […]

Where oh where has Kula Mama gone??? Well… Kula Baby is now a big brother!  We welcomed his little sister about 6 weeks ago.   I’ve re-entered the world of frequent feedings, diapers changes, swaddling, and cat napping to salvage some semblance of sanity.  I don’t think I’m faking the sanity part very well yet.  She’s […]

Energy Bites (Dairy-free, Gluten-free)

Our pantry has been bare the last couple of weeks.  Kula Baby’s been surviving on rice bread and almond butter at snack time because I’ve been too lazy to whip up something better.  The problem is he always eats rice bread and almond butter so he really doesn’t provide me with any incentive to branch […]

Veggie Lo Mein

Veggie Lo Mein by www.kulamama.com

I’ve been playing the role of a single parent the past few nights while my husband racks up frequent flier miles for work.  He rests his head each night in a Weston Heavenly Bed, while I try to hold down the fort with a 2 and 1/2 year old who constantly wonders WHY, WHY, WHY […]

Chicken Croquettes (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)


If there is one thing that really gets me fired up, it’s paying for overpriced organic “kid” food when I know I can make it myself.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the convenience of pre-made food when I’m in a bind.  We keep our freezer stocked with a few options just in case […]

Simple Hummus (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

simple hummus

I am a hummus addict. For real. Not a day goes by that I don’t dip a veggie or spread a cracker with this delectable treat.  Early in Kula Baby’s culinary adventures, I learned to use hummus as a protein source for any snack involving his beloved cracker.  For a period of time Kula Baby […]
