How To Make Lavender Simple Syrup

In life’s busiest times, the best thing we can do is remember to stop and enjoy the simplest little things! One of my joys: enjoying a cup of coffee or a delicious latte. I recently tried a lavender cold brew coffee from a local shop and was inspired to recreate a lavender simple syrup for my own homemade beverages. I’ve made regular simple syrup on numerous occasions, but I’ve never ventured into the realm of…

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…

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…

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Donuts with Cacao + Peanut Butter Glaze

If at first you don’t succeed, avoid it for 4 months and then try again. I know, probably not the most inspirational advice you’ve ever heard, but that’s how I handled the major fail that was the first time I used my donut baking pan. Donuts! So trendy! I thought, as I bought the pan and proceeded to make what were the most terrible carrot cake donuts that ever existed in the history of life.…

Chewy + Soft Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mondays. Forever stuck in the shadow of the weekend and arguably most people’s least favorite day of the week. I get it, that alarm beeped when it seemed you had only been sleeping for 10 minutes, there is that to-do list waiting on your desk with this week’s tasks and the ones you left on Friday, and maybe there’s laundry or household chores. But, what if we reframed the way we saw Monday mornings? Rather…

Skillet Baked Apples + a Lovely Weekend

This weekend was beautiful. Though originally forecasted for clouds and rain, there was nothing but clear skies from Saturday Morning to Sunday Night. We spent hours working on our yard on Saturday, but it honestly didn’t even feel like work. I’m not sure when it became enjoyable to me, but right now I am so into being outside and learning how to garden. I think this falls into line with a recent break through in…

Chocolate Chip Marbled Banana Bread

When it comes to cooking, I feel like I have a really good handle on things. I can improvise with ingredients or measurements and usually find success. Baking, however, is a completely different beast. I have a truly difficult time with creating baked goods from scratch without a recipe. This is partly because I just don’t experiment enough. If I continued to try and try again at a recipe, I am sure I would finally…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Waffles

Guys. If you’re looking for a breakfast recipe that could basically double as a dessert, look no further. These waffles are all you need. I had a few bananas on their way to being brown and thought, “Why not experiment with a new recipe?” rather than just making a batch of standard banana bread. We just recently purchased a mini waffle iron, so waffles seemed like the obvious answer. We went out for a little…
