Lemon Blueberry Scones

I’m a big believer in everything happening for a reason. Whether it was a heartbreak, a great job, a not so great job, where I’ve lived, where I’ve traveled, or the accomplishments I’ve rocked up until today. But above all the people that have come in and out of my life. Every person, and each…

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

I’ve always been a fan of a road trip, but sometimes we hit a few bumps in the road and I have to say one of the most memorable was when me and Mary (my mom, I like to call her Mary) jumped in the car and headed down to Oklahoma. My sister was living out…

Pistachio Squash Soup

We are talking about a window of opportunity here to either seal the deal or your fate. Lucky for me I tend to show well, or at least that’s what my mom tells me, so I’ve always done well during my meet the parents interview. I can only think of one time where my cunning wit…

Quinoa Chicken Nuggets

I can still remember the excitement I would feel as a kid having a friend sleepover, but with adulthood in full swing there’s a different thought process that goes through my mind when I think about this event now, especially if it involves that special someone. 1. Time to look like an adult. Because you…

Apple Nachos

You know those sleeping beauties that you see on airplanes, or waiting in lounges, or even sitting next to you in a movie that are not only asleep, but actually look as though they’re comfortable??? I hate those people, I can barely get in a solid six when I’m in my own bed. My sleepless nights actually…

Paleo Tuna Patties

When we’re kids we don’t always make the best decisions, we push the boundaries, make bad choices, stretch the truth, but looking back at my childhood I was actually a pretty good kid, BUT I was also a complete A HOLE from time to time. My mom likes to say that if I had been…

Breakfast Bake

I will be the first to admit that when it comes to being coordinated I lack that “je ne sais quoi”, for some reason or another walking always tends to be a bit of challenge. I’ve actually lost track of the amount of times I’ve “bit it”, and most of these instances I was just…

Brussel Broccoli Bowl

First impressions are always something that most of us worry about. That nerve-racking job interview, first day of school, but you know which one I love… introducing someone I’m dating to my friends. Boys always seem to sweat the meet and greet with the parents, but if the friends give you a thumbs down then…

Honey Bee Meals

Did anyone else blink and 2017 was over?!? What the?!! Don’t get me wrong I am more than happy to see it in my rearview mirror as it wasn’t exactly full of sunshine and rainbows, but wow….too fast! Now I feel like I’m one of those “old people” that loves talking about how quickly time…

Almond Butter Bites

With Halloween fast approaching every parent is clearly in costume panic mode. Last minute swords, fake blood galore, and the restocking of  the handout candy. Cause that box you hid (out of sight and out of mind) we both know you found yourself visiting each night grabbing one, two, maybe three mini chocolate bars. But…
