Hey, hi, hola! Wow it’s been a while!! I have seriously had one of the most busy Summers of my life. Probablyyyyy not the best time to start a blog. So many times I wanted to post but I knew I really shouldn’t start up again if I couldn’t give it the right attention. I’ve…

Cuban Style Tostones

Do you have those foods that you used to hate with a deep passion, then randomly when you’re older your opinion totally and completely changes?! Well, for me that food is Tostones. Tostones are basically fried plantains. They’re a staple in many Latin American cuisines, in particular Cuban cuisine. I decided I wanted to give…

Indian Spice Rubbed Salmon Buddha Bowl

I had so many ideas of how to start this post, but now that I’m writing there’s only really one thing that comes to mind. What exactly is a Buddha Bowl? I feel like they’re making their way up through the health food world like chia seeds, coconut oil, matcha, etc. Do they have to be…

Coconut Berry Smoothie Bowl

Happy Friday people!!!!! So I don’t have a cocktail recipe for you this week (soon to come though) but I find that this is just as good 🙂 Fridays are the gateways to the beautiful, spontaneous, glorious thing that is the weekend. If you work full time like me, you know what I’m talking about. Knowing that…

Have you ever made something a little different and thought, “ehh I’m sure it’ll be halfway decent”, and then you’re totally surprised by how good it actually is? Well, if not….make these brownies.

Red Velvet Brownies

Yes, you read that right. RED. VELVET. BROWNIES. I made these for my boss’ birthday, and every day since my coworkers have sneaked a peak in my lunch bag to see if I have anymore. I’m pretty pumped with the brownie points (pun intended) I got for these, especially given the fact that my boss’ boss…

Matcha Loving Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

I just want to take a moment to salute what might be the BEST icing I think I’ve ever made. Best tasting, though not the best texture. This frosting is SO FREAKING GOOD!!!!! But it can be difficult to use on cakes due to it’s thinner and creamier consistency. Ok so let’s now talk about these matcha…

White Margherita Pizza Dip

MAJOR shout out to my absolute favorite food blog, Half Baked Harvest , for this insanely good pizza dip. I made a couple alterations to the recipe for my own preference, but you have to give credit where it’s due. I made this over the weekend for Mother’s Day and it was a hit! I even used some…

The 101 On Golden Milk & Why You Should Be Drinking It

I think people get seriously weirded out when you suggest drinking Turmeric. It just doesn’t come across as something you relate to snuggling up with your favorite mug under a cozy blanket. But you couldn’t be more wrong!!! Ok let’s go back before we go forward, back to the basics. Turmeric is a herbaceous plant from…

FriYAY Cocktails: Blood Orange & Thyme Daiquiri

Ok admittedly I’m getting this post up prettyyyyy late for a Friday, but I just had to share! I. LOVE. THIS. DRINK. Way more than I thought I would. I was iffy about mixing thyme and citrus, but decided to take the risk. Well I’m happy as hell I did! Let me give a super quick background of a…
