New year, new me. That’s what you’ve heard a million times since 2016 began, right? And let’s not forget about the other million times you heard it last year when this saying was originally discovered. Or wait, was it the year before? I love how every new year feels like a new start and a […]

Snackin’ on the Go

January 6, 2016

This Monday I started the elimination diet (you can read more about why here). I’m going to be out of town for the next few days because Jordin is having surgery, so we’re staying in a hotel for a few nights and spending our days at the hospital. I’m the kind of person that gets real […]

Hot Chocolate Three Ways

December 21, 2015

It’s finally chilly, the crisp is in the air, my boots are on full rotation, I’m finished with school for the semester, and the holidays are very much upon us.

Guava Bellinis

August 17, 2015

The friendships in my life are one of the most important things to me. I’ve been able to spend the past week laughing with my friends, crying with them, hugging and smiling together, and just being each other with one another. My friends are the glue that keeps me together and they make my life […]

I have an obsession. It involves Disney World. And pineapple.

I’ve been running to the Farmer’s market every weekend stocking up on juicy plump peaches as we coast through the last summer month, and am planning to make as many peach focused recipes that I can before they’re gone! I love having peaches anytime of the day, but I enjoy them most with breakfast. There’s just […]

Watermelon Ice Cream

August 3, 2015

I walked into Michael’s yesterday and I am not kidding when I tell you they were setting up the Halloween items. I’m personally a huge fan of fall, it’s my favorite time of year, but even I did a collective sigh when I saw ghosts and goblin displays in AUGUST. It’s starting to get real that […]
