Luscious grain-free lemon cake

Hiiii. How’s your Monday going? We’ve had a lovely morning. Still tons of rain, a sweaty BODYPUMP class, and Livi’s gymnastics class, which is one of my favorite things ever.  So, there are a few customs I wish the US would adopt. #1: the siesta. WHY CAN’T WE HAVE A NATIONAL SIESTA? My family is…

Savory Goat Cheese Veggie Dip

Hi! How’s the afternoon going? It’s been a great day with my little sidekick. 🙂 This morning involved playing birthday fairy, which involved a solo trip to the mall. It was luxurious to smell candles with both hands, and I loved picking up a couple of birthday surprises for the little lady. (PS all she…

Crispy Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars

This is just ridiculous. Before we talk protein bars, let’s talk about The Bachelor. DID YOU WATCH IT?! Are they really trying for ratings this season or what? The tupperware joke. I’m still cringing bahaha. I loved that they saved the normal people for the last round, for the most part. Good TV.  So, yesterday…

Pumpkin acai bowls with cranberry crunch

The Christmas cop has arrived in our house. It happens every year. I get a little excited to break out the snowmen and twinkly lights and he’s all “honor the bird” and won’t let me touch the xmas supplies until we’re eating day-after-Thanksgiving sandwiches. Humbug.  Even though I have to hold off on all Christmas…

Persimmon and goji berry smoothie

  SO MUCH fall produce to be excited about! From the squash everything to the apple varieties, it’s definitely a diverse group of delicious options. My very favorite: the persimmon. I didn’t have my first persimmon until we were living in Valdosta, and I bought one on a whim. At first I was like “how…

Like lightning in a jar

Hi! Happy Monday! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning and enjoyed a relaxing weekend. Mine included a traveling day to get home to my favorite people. We even had packed snacks (energy balls -recipe is below!- salad, and trail mix) to enjoy at the airport; far more delicious than most airport food I’ve seen. (salad…

Pumpkin chocolate chip baked breakfast cookies

Hi! How about a cookie? Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve found myself back on the oats wagon. It might just be the season, but I’ve found myself enjoying oats more frequently in fave recipes like these beloved pancakes, breakfast cookie dough cereal, baked oatmeal and breakfast cookies. We’re going through some kind of…

Almost like the real thing

To accidentally celebrate our Italy trip anniversary, we spent the afternoon in a spot we’re determined to visit more often. (Our travel agent commented on our Instagram that it was one year ago that we went to Rome and Positano. Some Italy tips are here, too! I’ve thought about it every day since; I’m itching…

Vegan chickpea cheezy stuffed mushrooms

(aka “use these mushrooms because they go bad quickly”) Hii 🙂 How’s your day going? It’s been a good one over here. I spent the morning with Livi becoming acquainted with our new medical facility here in SD. It’s one of the nicest I’ve seen; very clean, a friendly staff and lots of distraction activities.…
