On Wednesday my middle girl turned nine and she requested the same simplemills chocolate cake and fruity cream cheese frosting that we did in September for her younger sister. I only had one more bag of freeze dried raspberries, and my Thrive Market order to get more, was delayed and didn’t come in time; but we had fresh beets for the coloring this time, and used the last of our homemade cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving, and it turned out so delicious! 😙👌 The basic recipe is just cream cheese whipped together with the sweetener of your choice. We used real maple syrup this time. 🍁 #yum
I apologize that I didn’t get a picture of her little personal cake. It was a long day and I was just happy I’d managed to finish her cake up before bedtime. Pictures were not foremost in my mind, (though my hubby took a video of her blowing out the candles.) Aside from her personal cake I made cupcakes and this was the very last of them that I hid from the kids till I got a chance to take a picture. 🙃 #momlife #glutenfreecake #fruitycreamcheesefrosting #canesugarfree #organic #pastureraised #cleaneating #evelynmercystable

We gave our Christmas stuffing recipe a test run on friends with a big 3.3kg chicken from Sue at Topi Open Range
Topi chickens are pasture raised, bleach free and organically fed. Producers Sue and Andy use chemical free farming practices too.
Topi Chickens will be available for Christmas. We can’t cook one for you; but we can get it stuffed and trussed so it’s ready to hit the oven.
We are welcoming Erika and Allan VanRyzin - owners of Certified Dancing Frog Farm. Erika warmly shared, “Nutrition for the animals directly transfers to help humans heal. We follow and observe nature, it is the wisest teacher. We live as a part of the land and ecosystem, sharing with the rest of life. We protect the earth and create a shared habitat for wildlife. And we are always looking to better our soil, soil biology and diversity of plants.” #agreenerworld
Do you want to know where your beef is coming from? I love feeling confident in the product that I am feeding my children. Did you know that you can fill your freezer this winter with a small mixed bag or mixed box of our pasture raised beef? We have both grass and grain fed beef that is cut, wrapped and frozen at a provincially inspected facility. We will even deliver it to you within the City of Kamloops, free of charge. Our minimum order size is $60.
First time outside! These chicks were hatched out from our egg layer flock. In six months they will be laying eggs for you! #PastureRaised
Whole beef is big. Like, REALLY big. And there’s a lot of meat to move. Especially on the hindquarter where there a couple very large, lean muscles. That’s the main reason we’re the only ones in LA working with whole animals. It’s hard. Like, REALLY hard. And you have to be creative.
But. On top of just being the best in the biz, we also have the best customers, and we don’t actually have any trouble moving through all this mass. Special shoutout to beef jerky y’all!!!
📣 A reminder that we have one week until Christmas orders close.
Place your through our website, over the phone or at your local Hagen’s store.
Please place your order at the store you’d like to pick up from.
Head to our website through the link in our bio
You might not be able to get out of the supermarket without having a taste. #maplehillkids
An eggcellent Saturday brunch thanks to @vitalfarms
🍳❤️👏🏼The event not only my set soul on fire being near so many passionate, like-minded and inspiring individuals, but set me on a mission to spread the word on humanely treated hens🙌🏼 In plain English, their PASTURE-RAISED eggs come from happy, free-roaming gals on one of the company’s many farms along the pasture belt🐓 A minimum of 108 square feet for our little friends to roam—and they REALLY like to roam. Best of all, you can feel amazing about consuming the product—no harmful chemicals and the hens are given a naturally varied diet🥰 OH YEAH, and they are delicious. Probs making some avo toast with a couple tonight. Actually yup, definitely doing that. Hope y’all have a perfect Sunday afternoon😎
