Emma Mae in the kitchen


She is at it again…  I can’t keep this girl out of the kitchen and frankly, I don’t want to…  This time my Emma Mae is whipping up a mean salsa for the family!

I have watched Emma create in the kitchen since she was six years old y’all.  And, before you go thinking I am a irresponsible momma letting a kid near the stove, you need to understand my Emma Mae.  The girl was born with an old soul and wisdom way beyond her years. Frankly, she scares me.  No, I’m kidding. But really, the kid was preaching sermons to our goats at five years old and well… you just don’t mess with that.  At eleven years old this kid just might have surpassed my parenting skills. Seriously… I have struggled with knowing how to best nurture all the awesomeness she has bottled up in her little bones. I have prayed COUNTLESS prayers not only for His Spirit to guide me with being their momma but to help me know how to water, nurture and care for the gifts they have been given.

Recently, we have really taken notice to her love for good food and preparing a beautiful meal!  And we have tried to be intentional with what we have seen…  With the help of my uber talented family, we pulled off some amazing photos and videos of Emma in the kitchen.  I think Ale’ and Alex love to watch Emma Mae do her thing as much as Andy and I do!

Learning more about wellness has led our family to understand we have healthier options.  I believe the kitchen plays a huge role in taking care of our bodies.  We have learned so much about the benefits of essential oils and knew that implementing them into our cooking could only add to the goodness of whole food.  “…Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”  Ezekial 47:12  Besides the awesome benefits of essential oils and the fact they basically last forever,  they contain healing nutrients and oxygenated molecules that greatly enhance our overall health.  They are actually 50-70 times more therapeutically potent than the herbs or plants they are taken from.  So, you can obviously see when the opportunity arises to swap out a dried herb for one of our Vitality essential oils… we on it!

Now.  Check out her video and enjoy her recipe for some seriously amazing salsa!   Even better grab a sweet kiddo in your life and head to the kitchen with our ingredients listed below!  I am telling you,  ALL kinds of fun to be had!
