Happy Sunday! Today I have a fun twist on an energy bite. Our family has been cutting out refined sugar this month, and oh how good I’ve been feeling on simply whole foods! But, from time to time it’s good to have a pick-me-up treat. And the good thing is that it can still be a treat WITHOUT the sugar. The trick? Dates. That’s all you need to give these the right amount of sweetness.Read More
This is an easy fruit salad. You don’t even need a syrup or sugars. The juices of the citrus and pomegranate create just the right amount of sweetness and liquid. I am on a serious citrus kick and this salad hits all the right spots for me.Read More
As I am gearing up for baby #2, I’ve been thinking back to before I had Dylan. What I had no idea I needed. Or what I’ve loved and plan on using again with the next little one. So I thought I would make a list of things I feel are the perfect gifts for a new mom. If you’re a new mom and looking for items to add to your registry, check out some of these items! Or if you are looking for a baby shower gift, these will be well-used. At least they were for me!Read More
As I mentioned last week, there are some changes happening over here on my blog and in my life in general.
First, I’m so excited to share that we will be welcoming another addition to the family next June! EEEK! Right now this time is filled with such emotion (and I’m already such an emotional person). I’m so anxious and excited for what’s to come, while also savoring my time with just little Dylan because it’s been so fleeting. Time goes so fast!Read More
Hello! I’ve made some changes to the blog over here. I hope all of you find it a bit more user friendly! I have a Motherhood post coming to the blog next week that will delve into the changes more, but for the time being, I have health-ish cookie recipe to share today!Read More
Hello! I haven’t posted on this space in some time. I have some exciting things happening… more on that very soon! ;)
In the meantime, hot chocolate has been a daily occurrence in my life. I was never a huge hot chocolate drinker - I usually just enjoy it a football games or around the holidays - but lately it’s all I crave. It’s rainy & dreary over here today, so you can bet I just made a batch!Read More
Today is a post I’ve been meaning to do for a while. A chocolate chunk cookie that is both gluten-free & refined sugar-free, if you care about that kind of thing. But also very soft and yummy!Read More
Today I’m sharing my dairy-free, sugar-free coffee creamer that is flavored with pumpkin spice!Read More
Today I wanted to share a bit about my healthier skin care routine.
This past summer I’ve really, really cleaned it up. You see, I’ve always cared so much about working out & eating healthy, but I never really cared about what I was putting ON my body. That completely changed when I found out what I was actually putting on my body…Read More
I should probably be posting something with apples, pumpkin, spices or ya know…something fall-ish. Because that’s what everyone is doing. So spare me and forgive me. Because today I’m going to post a double chocolate cookie that can be made any day of the year.Read More
If you want a crowd-pleaser. If you want a cookie to share at a party. If you want to take some cookies to work...
Make this monster cookie.Read More
Happy Sunday! Need a snack, meal prep idea… or just need something to bake today? Have two ripe bananas on your counter? Want something your child will eat? Want it to be easy?
Here is your recipe: BREAKFAST COOKIES.Read More
In my opinion fruit is sooo much better when it’s picked fresh. I swear it tastes different. Maybe the extra work you put in makes you think the taste is even better. Maybe the taste is actually just the same? No, no… I’ve decided it really does tastes better. Plus, it hasn’t been sitting around for who knows how long.Read More
WOW. That's about the only word I can think of to describe my first year with Dylan. I think I say this just about every post, but how has time flown so quickly!? How is it almost fall again, wasn't it just winter? And um, how is my daughter ONE?!
The heat of summer may make you think twice about turning on the oven. BUT if it's to make cookies, I say go for it.
Need a cookie to make this weekend, but don't have a lot of time? I have you covered!
Hello! I haven't popped on here all month. Which at first didn't feel like that long... but when I looked at my calendar, I couldn't believe it's pretty much the middle of July! How does time fly so fast?Read More
I have a few thoughts regarding today's post.
First - I am obsessed with making these peanut butter bites. As in, I've been making them every Monday for the week and each morning pack FOUR in my bag for work. It's become a real problem. But on the flip side, I've been buying less RX Bars which are pricey, so maybe I am saving money?!Read More
All of the time I think about the day when I'll be able to bake with my daughter. When she'll be able to sit up at the table with me and help mix the dough and add the flours and sugar.Read More
