Lots, lots, LOTS to share with you today.  I’m so excited!

Today’s the first day of my new podcast!  If you have no idea how to listen –  keep reading – I’ll tell you everything you need to know!  You have been so great to join me on the journey here on the blog, I hope you jump right in do the same on the podcast!

Since I had so much fun when my friend, Kat Lee, interviewed me for her podcast (links below), I decided to start one of my own. After much procrastination and push back planning and preparation, I sat down with a simple headset and started yapping.  Today’s post is my way to give you a heads up on what’s coming down the pike.

Grab your headphones, join me for a chat and keep reading to learn more!

Chrystal's Chronicles Podcast

Highlight from Today’s Episode:

The Four “Fs”

  • Faith
  • Family
  • Food & Fitness
  • Fun

Well.  I guess there are technically five “fs”. The most important thing for you to remember is that it’s O.K. if you don’t have it all together.  It’s perfectly O.K for you to feel like there are pieces of your head or heart that you can’t quite identify or find.  You are human. Being human means you are flawed.  Enough of the bad news?  No problem.  There is a way for you to get it all together and be completely whole.

The Simple Cook


The Simple Cook

Pinterest is driving me insane.


Between the food artistry “pinned” and available for anytime viewing and the large variety of food blogs at my disposal – I’m going nuts.

I believe in food.

I mean… I really do love food.

But there is something about having to get dinner on the table every night that takes my food level involvement to a point of saturation.

And that doesn’t include breakfast, lunch, and in-between snacks.

I know what some of you are thinking: meal planning is the answer to all my woes. I’ve done that too, and let me tell you, after awhile… even the planning can get monotonous.

Yes. I want to feed my family well.

Yes. I want to keep them showing up to the table in anticipation of what’s-for-dinner.

Yes. I want to give the people I love food to eat that’s good to them and good for them.

But can I just say what I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking? Mealtime can be an ongoing, overwhelming and inescapable responsibility.

So I’ve made a decision: I’m keeping it simple…
