About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Addie's Avocado Almond "dip it" recipe (grain free, dairy free)

What's more fun than decorating your dip!! This is Addie's new favorite "dip it" and it is actually a recipe that she made up! She just kept saying "ok mommy, lets put some of this in there"...and so I did and then we blended it up and decorated it!

  • 1/2 cup almonds (soaked overnight in water)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 tomato (quickly eat the other half so it doesnt go bad - at least that is what Addie says!)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • salt to taste
Easy directions: Toss it all in a bowl and puree it with a hand blender. And of course you must make a fun face on your dip...this is Henry and Addies favorite part!

This dip is great with sliced bell peppers, carrots and celery! Addie also likes it on her lettuce wraps with a little bit of turkey! 

Enjoy!! Let me know what creative ways you find to use this dip!
