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.

Sweet Potato Nests – & the Importance of Breakfast

Breakfast may very well be my favorite meal of the day. This is one part due to loving eggs so much, and one part due to loving the feeling of fueling up for the day.

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…

Falafel & Farro Bowl

Its easy to get into little food ruts of making the same kind of meals each week. If you’re looking for a recipe to shake things up, look no further. I used to make falafel pretty often when I was eating mostly vegetarian, but I kind of forgot about it for awhile. However, this past weekend I stumbled upon a falafel picture on Instagram from a blogger I follow, and I immediately craved the the…

24 Hours in Lake Placid & Finding Joy in all Seasons

Everyone has their favorite season of the year for their own reasons. Each season has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Some love the heat of summer while others loathe it, and vice versa. Some prefer the blooms of spring, and some prefer the fall foliage. Today, I’m making the case for loving all seasons; for choosing to see the beauty in and taking advantage of the good bits of every season. Savoring the…
