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…)

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…)

Helllooooo summertime cocktails! As the end of the month starts closing in around us (nooo!), I’m tempted to squeeze in every single summery drink and food I can think of. To start off, I bought a huge bag of sweet corn on the cob at the farmer’s market last week (if you are in Milwaukee, go here on Saturday and look for him, it’s his birthday this weekend!) and am muddling up all the mint that has taken over my poorly neglected garden. Even though my parsley leaves a lot to be desired (more…)

Creamy Vegan Nutella Latte

Creamy Vegan Nutella Latte - make your mornings even better with a dose of nutella in this creamy iced latte!

Let me tell you, I am a total WUSS when it comes to caffeine. I have my one cup of coffee in the morning before work (either a blend from my hometown coffee shop or whatever local place we have around) and that’s it. No second cup of coffee, no afternoon latte, none of that jazz. I was actually off of coffee (more…)

Strawberry Ginger Kombucha Cocktail

Strawberry Ginger Kombucha Cocktail- a perfectly fizzy and refreshing drink!

Let’s talk about the first time I tried kombucha. It was summer about a year ago and it was high time for me to try it. There are at least 2 local kombucha companies in the area, so it really was turning into a have to at this point, right? Plus, it seemed like EVERYONE on the internets was trying/loving the booch, so it was my time too! I happily picked out a bottle from my local grocery store, plunked it down on the counter and went on my merry way. As I was sipping on the bubbly drink (I got a hibiscus ginger flavor), I was thinking ‘this is great! So great for me, pretty delicious, I think I”m on convert!’ Yep, I kept thinking that, until I got to the last of the bottle. (more…)
