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…

Flourless Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

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. I still can’t get over how pleasantly surprised I am at their outcome! I found this recipe a while back on Instagram…

Paprika Baked Chicken in a Lemon Thyme Sauce

Happy Monday people!! And welcome to June! I don’t know about the rest of you but I for one am really looking forward to a new month. I’m feeling extra motivated this month to get myself in order. Do you ever find yourself feeling a bit out of sorts? Too busy, too cluttered, too anxious?…

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…

2 Flights in 48 Hours: A Complexion’s Nightmare

Let me 2 weeks of constant travelling begin….yay? I think. Alright so I’m currently in Knoxville, Tennessee for work. It’s hot. Hot and humid. MY FAVORITE. I flew down Monday night, and am flying back tonight. That’s a lot of air time in a very short amount of time. And let me tell you now,…

Italian Inspired Antipasto Platter

Currently writing from my new desk instead of the couch and I could not be happier!!! Last week, I found myself feeling a bit overwhelmed. I had intended on posting here 3 to 4 times a week, and having tons of posts in my arsenal pre-written and ready to go. Well, life got in the way, and I ended…

Prepping for Taco Tuesday with Chipotle Shrimp and Kale Tacos

If you’re anything like me, you hate doing your food shopping on the same day as your cooking. Well, at least on week days. There are only a few precious hours between getting home from work and going to sleep to fit way too much in! I like to do most of my food shopping…

FriYAY Cocktails: Blackberry Whiskey Sour

It’s Friday so you know what that means…FriYAY Cocktails!! Fair warning: this one’s a bit on the strong side. But hey, it’s Friday. Let’s get tipsy. Earlier this week I noticed the organic blackberries were on sale at my local Shop Rite. I’m not a 100% organic shopper, I just can’t afford that. But when…
