7 Simple Actions to Live More Sustainably

The World is so beautiful, isn’t it? Our Earth gives us water so that we can survive and gives us land so we have a place to survive. But if we are being honest with ourselves, Are we really doing the best we can to show gratitude? If you went to a friends house, would you make a mess and not clean it up? The earth has been around for far longer than we have…

Easy Weeknight Meals – Veggie and Brown Rice Noodle Stir Fry

Hello there, Friends! I’m back with my first recipe in over week. This summer is already way busier than expected, but all good things! I had no intentions of tonight’s dinner making it as a recipe on my blog, but then I realized, if you’re like me, these are actually the recipes you want. The ones you can make in 15-20 minutes after a long day at work. Thus, I bring you my first recipe…

Maple Bourbon Cherries

Over the past couple years, Corey and I have acquired a love for creating cocktails at home. While the Moscow Mule is a trusty go-to for most occasions, our favorite night cap or date night beverage is the old fashioned. We’ve made quite a few variations involving different herbs and fruits, but there is something so smooth and classic about the standard version: bourbon, orange zest, bitters, cherry. My one hang up when it comes…

Honey Tamari Cucumber Salad with Ginger, Jalapeño, Cilantro and Lime

Honey, Tamari, Jalapeno, Pickled Ginger, Cilantro, Lime Juice. Yes, that is a lot of flavors. I probably would’ve never tried combining tamari soy sauce and ginger with (what I consider) hispanic flavors, but boy did it work! Last week I started checking out cookbooks from our local library, not to follow the recipes necessarily, but to teach myself more about flavor blending and specific cooking/baking techniques. I was surprised to see just how many recipes…

Recipe Video: Lemon Garlic Hummus

Hey, Friends! I did something! With the help of my fiancé, Corey, I have entered the world of video content by filming my lemon garlic hummus recipe! While its clearly a learning process, I am quite proud of how this first one turned out. I have many improvements to make, such as my awkward pauses, but you’ll never learn unless you do, right? So here is one more reminder, to put yourself out there and…

Friday Favorites – 06.22.18

Ah yes, I did in fact skip last week’s edition of the Friday favorites as I was quite busy packing for Long Island. As I mentioned in the first of these, they may not happen every week because #reallife! This week’s favorites are in line with how I’ve been feeling lately: bright and simple. A strange combination of adjectives, however incredibly accurate. I’m not sure if it’s the 17 hours of day light we have…

Strawberry, Walnut and Goat Cheese Spinach Salad

The farmers’ market was busting at the seams with awesome finds today. I love browsing the little white tents for produce, flowers and other craft goods. Today I snagged a gorgeous bouquet of peonies that are now bringing so much joy to my kitchen counter. Strawberries and micro greens were among the other things I purchased, both of which made it into today’s recipe: a Strawberry, Walnut and Goat Cheese Spinach Salad. Just 10 minutes…

Adaptogenic Mushroom Coffee Popsicles

Adaptogenic mushroom coffee popsicles? Yes, my friend, quite the mouthful of words, but trust me on this one. I’m absolutely in love with Four Sigmatic’s mushroom coffees, so I was through the moon when afforded the opportunity to develop a recipe for the brand. I’ve become obsessed with making coconut milk popsicles and coffee is one of my favorite ice cream flavors, so for me, it was a no-brainer to craft together a frozen coffee…

Lemon Rosemary Tea Cookies

The currents and tides of life are quite interesting. One second you can be really into doing one thing, and then the next day you’re after another. This is true and false for my blogging. I’ve never lost interest in blogging over the past year since starting, but at the same time my desire to create content on a more frequent basis has varied greatly. Recently, however, I can’t seem to get enough of the…
