As with many years, I started out 2017 with a set of goals and intentions. Not really resolutions, since those are kind of not my jam (or anyone’s it seems) and they seem to slip to the wayside as soon as February (aka Valentines and Easter, aka candy season) roll around. Mine include things like ‘drink/eat something green everyday’, ‘set and meet goals for the blog (!!)’ and ‘drink less booze’. While I’m not a lush by any means, I can tend to (more…)

Let’s take it all the way back to last summer, when it was balmy outside and walking around without a coat was the norm (it always seems so distant when it’s the winter!).

It’s been a minute (more like 2 weeks!), right? Between the holidays, needed time to chill out and trying to get over two nasty colds, a break was well needed. I have the whole month of January already planned out, so I am excited about the recipes that are coming in the next few weeks! My goal is to start trying to incorporate more savory recipes too, since a girl can’t subsist on waffles and cake alone (much as I might try). My past self must have known that my future self was going to need this power packed matcha (more…)

I’ll keep this one short and sweet, because Christmas is almost here and I know we all have presents to wrap/cookies to eat/hot chocolate to spike and there isn’t enough time for it all. As with years past, I’m creating a Christmas cookie recipe in partnership with my favorite (more…)
