Why I’m afraid to lose weight again.

Each year, the days dwindle down until we hit January 1 – the time of year where we all feel as if we can do better, and vow to change our lives. I feel that same way. The new year brings about a spirited time where you feel as if you can start over. You…

Lemon Ginger Apple Cider Champagne Punch

The holidays are almost over, and I’m a little bit sad! Although I’m in love with all of the time to relax, time with my family and ALL of the food, I’m actually very ready for the New Year. This year has taught be a lot about myself, but I have so much to look…

Luxury English Muffins

When B and I took our trip to Portland, we had a few really amazing breakfasts at Urban Farmer – a really airy, fresh food restaurant in The Nines hotel downtown. They had these ridiculously fluffy, pillowy, light english muffins and I became obsessed. I’m used to english muffins that could be used as a…

Dipped Pretzel Sticks

The holidays are here and I can’t tell you how many parties and food related events I have this month. I have a ton of pot-luck parties between the one at my office, a late Friendsgiving and my friends’ annual Festivus party. Not to mention Christmas and New Years Eve and everything in between. I…

Why I bought a medical ID bracelet.

I always thought that Medical ID bracelets were something for people of a certain age. I also thought they were boring, purposeful, but boring…and ugly.

Obviously moderation is key here, but the holidays are fast approaching and I had to make one of my FAVORITE compound butters. Cinnamon compound butter! Compound butters come in all flavors…

Dinner & A Movie

I’m totally not a movie-goer like my lovely husband, but if there’s good food available, you can always find a way to get me there! Studio Movie Grill is one of those places that I love catching a movie. Not only are they the originator of in-theatre dining, they always have an option or two that doesn’t…

Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Squash, Bacon Salad.

I’m really starting to learn a lot about cooking with seasonal veggies and not just the same ones I always eat (I’m looking at you, broccoli). I decided to use a veggie that often gets a bad rap: Brussels Sprouts. If you’re not aware, Brussels Sprouts are basically a baby cabbage. It’s a leafy green,…

How to kick your stress eating habit.

I’ve been extremely stressed lately. From some traumatic things that have happened in the past couple weeks, to trying to plan a fun and quick trip/honeymoon for Bryan and I (which, in comparison to everything else, is really not that much of a chore), to getting food poisoning, it has been a HELL of a week in…

Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

  No flour, no butter and no white sugar. WHAT?? We’re doing these really awesome fundraisers at work, and a coworker of mine made this AH-MAH-ZING cookie – an Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie. Like, so good that I had to text her for the recipe. When she told me that it was flour-less, butter-less…
