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…

Bulleit Bourbon w/ Basil + Grapefruit

The temperature is rising and so are my cravings for refreshing home-crafted cocktails. 2 years ago I would’ve cringed at the idea of bourbon, but after being introduced to old fashioned’s by my fiancé when we first started dating, I developed a pallet for a good bourbon, on the rocks even. We often make old fashioned’s at home, but this past weekend we strayed from the standard and experimented with the grapefruit and bourbon combination.…

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

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…

Adaptogenic Matcha Latte

Have you tried Matcha? What about Adaptogens? Have you heard of adaptogens? While 80 percent of the time I believe in wellness by means of simplicity, sometimes I do like to enjoy some of the extra bits. While there isn’t any thing fancy about normal green tea, Matcha green tea has become increasingly popular and trendy in recent years. Matcha has many reported benefits, the main one being its super concentrated dose of antioxidants in…
