Stove-top or Slow Cooker Potpourri

I just painted my nails the shade of hot chocolate.  Well, glittery hot chocolate.  Why?  Because fall.  Delicious, delicious fall.  The air is crisp.  The deck is covered with leaves.  And the lake house?  It smells like one giant cup of hot apple cider.  If you were to walk into my kitchen right now you […]

Low(er) Carb Apple Bread

Bread.  Oh bread.  I love you, bread.  Sadly, you don’t seem to love me very much.  Or…do you love me too much?  Either way, I’ve learned that we just can’t hang out like we used to.  And that’s ok.  We’ll be like long-distance friends.  We’ll see each other every now and again.  And it’ll be […]

Cheddar and Brie Mac and Cheese

Hello tribe! It’s Friday Eve! Praise Jesus and a hallelujah!! Whoa mama it’s been a week for me. Like, GOOD GRIEF! Isn’t it so crazy when you start a new project how your whole life seems to change rotation? Since opening the yoga studio my schedule (and life) has been totally insane. For the last […]

It’s lovely to meet you!

Well hello there!  Nice to meet you!  I’m Ashley, and this is my first official Tenacious post.  I am so darned excited to be here!  How about I tell you a little about me? How do I know Kari? Let’s see if you can follow this…  My husband’s step-father is Kari’s husband’s uncle.  What does […]

Vegan Tacos and The Whole 30

Oh hello beautiful souls! Thanks for hanging in there with me you guys. Golly, what a summer! I’m finally getting into the swing of my new routine. With all the craziness going on in my life I have been eating HORRIBLY! Why does that always happen?! I made a whole batch of monkey bread recently […]

Crazy Busy Beautiful June!

Salutations! June is here and brings some craziness into my life! I have many adventures planned for the next few weeks and I am greatly looking forward to sharing them with you all! During the month of June I will only be sending out a few posts so that I can enjoy my time and […]

  There is nothing better than a big fat bowl of ice cream on a summer day. Amiright?! Unfortunately the older I get the less ice cream I can handle. I found smoothie bowls a few years ago and y’all already know that I’m utterly addicted to them. I know I post a lot of […]

Tandoori chicken and homemade naan flatbread

Middle Eastern food has got to be one of my all-time favorite things in the world. Now, I haven’t been overseas to have an authentic Hindu meal (YET) but I can dream and drool about it. Last night Eric and I got completely sucked into a show called Chef’s Abroad. It’s a show about different […]

Pineapple smoothies and half marathon training!

Most of you know that I am training to run my first half marathon. I’ve been training for 4 weeks and the race is 3 weeks away! I didn’t realize when I signed up for it that I only had 7 weeks to prepare but by golly I’m doing it! For the first few weeks […]

Day 1… Here goes nothin’.

Today marks my “official” day 1 of unclutttering from social media. I deleted them off of my phone about a week ago but I would re-download them when I wanted to “check in” or write my post about leaving the scene for a bit. I wasn’t on my phone almost at all yesterday but I […]
