Maple Roasted Carrots

August 23, 2011

When Nate and I first got married he would ask for one side and one side dish alone:  brown sugar carrots. The problem?  I had no idea what those were.  Still don’t really know what they are or how to make them.  Sure, that’s what Google’s for – or, you know, asking people – but […]

I don’t know about you but there is no way that I can survive a day without breakfast. I used to totally be that person who would drink a cup of coffee (a HUGE cup of coffee at that) and try to make it til lunch where I would inevitably be starving.  I don’t know […]

To Have Hope

August 19, 2011

I think one of the worst parts about having a miscarriage is the fact that there will still always be women who are pregnant and having babies around you.  Whether it’s friends, family, or that stranger in the grocery store…you’ll see them everywhere.  And as much as you want to be happy for them, as […]

As I sit here pouring through emails, editing photos, and generally working on getting my life together I am eating cold (yes, cold) leftover enchiladas from last night.  I COULD show you guys a new cookie recipe…but since all I can think about are these enchiladas and I think that you should make them as […]

August 18, 2011

Last night I was tired. So tired in fact that in the midst of watching Lord of the Rings I passed out on the couch only to be awakened by my husband at a late hour to go to real bed.  Crankily I stumbled up the stairs while he cleaned up my mess in the […]

Oven Baked BBQ Chicken Breasts

August 17, 2011

This recipe was born from necessity. Need an explanation?  It was necessary for me to make dinner for one of my sweet friends from work who just had a baby, and I promised BBQ chicken.  I needed to deliver BBQ chicken.  I wanted to.   The problem was that the store didn’t have a full […]

Whole Living Smoothies

August 16, 2011

I’m actually really picky about the apps that I download on my phone.  It’s almost a little ridiculous.  I’ve kind of been known to add an app and then totally delete it 2 days later because I never use it.  And I only buy an app if I know I’m going to really want it. […]

Godiva Chocolate Affogato

August 16, 2011

Have you ever had an affogato? It’s basically heaven.  Heaven being a scoop of vanilla gelato topped with a shot of espresso.  And since you and I are LIKETHIS I think we can both agree that heaven will be made up of affogatos and pizza, right?   Right. If you didn’t know, I love coffee.  […]

Strawberries ‘N’ Cream Pancakes

August 15, 2011

I never really understood the strawberries ‘n’ cream phenomenon. Growing up we rarely, if ever, had cream in our house.  And when we had strawberries those bad boys were getting chopped up and macerated in sugar and eaten with a spoon.  No fuss no muss and it was the easiest way to get the sweet […]
