Nutty Energy Bites

  After checking out the weather app for the past couple of weeks I can officially say that it is going to look bright and sunny for the upcoming week. Something about this change in the weather has me wanting to cook and bake all day long. Don’t worry in reality that will not...

Whipped Lemon Ricotta

This past summer when we took a trip to Santa Fe, NM we were so inspired by the culture and love for fresh food. The hotel we stayed at also had a fresh garden and the chef was all about making farm to table food for the guests. My husband would say that it...

Blood Orange Mint Spritzer

Rocky Road Brownies

A little over four years ago I was standing in my apartment kitchen whipping up my first batch of homemade brownies for the blog. Back then I thought it would reach about 10 people and that would be it. Who knew my recipes would be reaching people from all over the world now. On...
