Drinking Chocolate

Drinking Chocolate

The other night Meeker got into bed and as I kissed him goodnight, I distinctly smelled chocolate on his breath. Were you just eating chocolate? Yeah, I bit off Santa’s head. What the heck are you talking about? You know, that big basket of German chocolate that one of your blog readers sent us at … Continue reading

(GF) Oat Coconut Bites

Whenever I make a pot of coffee (rarely…we use our Keurig most days) We always have about a cup leftover that sits there getting cold until I decide I need to do something about it. Similarly, whenever I make oatmeal I never eat it all because I don’t like oatmeal that much and it sits … Continue reading

Baby Arugula Pizza

Baby Arugula Pizza

It’s Monday. Don’t worry, though. We’re making pizza today! Pizza makes it feel more like a Friday than a Monday, right? Oh, and while we’re on the subject of happy things, can I just tell you how glorious it is to have the sun set at 6pm? No more of this dark at 3:30 in … Continue reading

Turns out, they’re better than candy cigarettes. Way better. They only have four ingredients, too. Keep your eyes peeled … Continue reading

Lunch Lately

I have a full-blown obsession going on with fingerling potatoes. How fun is that word?! Fingerling. I’ve been eating them by the bag-full lately. They only take about 20 minutes to steam – which makes them perfect for lunches. Just sauté yourself some mustard greens (you can completely taste the mustard flavor…so delicious), sprinkle on … Continue reading

(Vegan) Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes

Meeker gave me a pineapple for Valentine’s Day. (He also gave me a gift card for $25 to my favorite grocery store. He told me I was forbidden to buy food for anyone but myself with it.) I love that boy. So, this pineapple had been sitting on my counter getting all nice and ripe … Continue reading

BLEND Giveaway

Why does January pass by like molasses, and February fly? I don’t know the answer. But I do know that because February is close to over, the blend retreat will be here in just over two short months. I get to meet you all in TWO MONTHS!!? We (me and my co-hosts: Lindsay and Janetha) … Continue reading
