Britt’s 30th Birthday

Britt’s 30th Birthday

In my last post I mentioned celebrating my best friend’s 30th birthday this weekend and thought I would share some of the party details today.

Britt's 30th Birthday

First up, meet the b-day girl, Britt! She and I met freshmen year of college in calculus class. We became good friends almost immediately and were roomies for all three years after meeting. It’s kind of funny because we both have the same name and back…

Yogurt Breakfast Bowl with Toasted Coconut, Walnuts, Blueberries and Chia

Happy Labor Day weekend friends! Hopefully you have some fun plans on the agenda… maybe a little swimming, a beach trip or a family cookout? Isaac and I are staying put in Richmond this weekend — which I’m perfectly content with after spending the majority of last week on a trip to Sacramento learning all about almonds, meeting new friends and drinking lots of wine. Plus this weekend was my best…

Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins

I know there are a few more weeks of warm weather and summer produce ahead but I’m one of those crazy pumpkin people and I’m totally okay with starting the pumpkin fun a little early.

I love just about anything with pumpkin in it. From edibles delights like pie, soup, muffins, oatmeal and beer to inedible things like candles and lotions. Pumpkin is such a versatile, healthy ingredient to cook…

Oven Roasted Okra

Hi and happy Monday to ya! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine started with a Friday morning Pure Barreclass, ended by grilling out with the hubby and included lots of fun with friends in between. We went to the farmers market on Saturday morning and one of the local vendors had pie pumpkins for sale — I took this as a sign and spent most of Saturday afternoon baking up some pumpkin goodies…

Grazeful Snacking

This post brought to you by Graze.com. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you’ve been reading for a while you’ll know that I’m a big fan of snacking — always have been, probably always will be. I’ve found that eating 5-6 times day works well for me — breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2-3 small snacks. Most days breakfast holds me over until lunch time so I don’t need a mid-morning snack and sometimes I…

Cranberry Coconut Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Cranberry Coconut Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Guess what? I finally came up with a granola bar recipe that 1) stays together  and 2) tastes good. You guys, this was a hard task! You’d think that a granola bar recipe would be easy peasy to come up with, but yeah, not so much. The process involved a lot of experiments and quite a few granola bar turned granola cereal adventures. Not a bad thing considering Isaac and I both like granola. Let’s…

Maple Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Oh boy! I have the perfect end of summer recipe to brighten your Monday — especially if you’re like me and have a lot of zucchini on your hands right about now. I know I’ve mentioned it before but our little garden is a zucchini making machine. This summer really has been the summer of zucchini for us — I’ve been whipping up at least one recipe a day that involves zucchini.

Obviously zucchini…
