Nectarine & Strawberry Salad w/ Ginger Lime Dressing

  I frequent Costco often – WAY too often to feed one body. I buy lots of food in bulk, and proceed to consume all of it by myself (no shame)! I usually buy enough fruit to feed a large family of 8 that hasn’t eaten for a few days. My last trip there grantedRead more

Coconut and coffee flavored yogurt, layered perfectly with bananas and chocolate chips!

Coconut Latte Yogurt Parfait

I’m just going to put it out there –  I LOVE BREAKFAST; it is amazing!!!!! If you know me at all, all this enthusiasm is not exaggerated! I love all the different breakfast options – from the simplicity of toast and eggs, oatmeal, or a smoothie to the all-out extravagance of gourmet pancakes, lox benedicts, stuffed frenchRead more

Perfectly marinated cubes of sushi served over rice and topped with an assortment of veggies

Easy Poke Bowl

  When all your coastal friends are posting pictures of their poke bowls from all the trendy restaurants/food trucks, but you’re stuck in Texas, you just gotta suck it up and make one yourself. After doing a little research, I learned that poke means “to cut” or “to slice,” and that it’s pronounced po-KAY, notRead more

Bake mini donuts all dressed up for the fourth of July!

Baked Mini Donuts (July 4th)

Today, we celebrate the fourth of July, and what better way than to celebrate with DONUTS!! Usually for donuts (and most delicious things), I’m all for the “bigger is better” concept, with loads of unnecessary and over the top things. But mini donuts are just so cute! And plus, with all the food you’ll beRead more

Creamy cheesecake popsicles swirled with a perfect berry sauce

Berry Swirl Cheesecake Popsicles

(If you don’t see the ingredient list show up on the bottom right corner, watch it full screen! Sorry for the little glitch!) I’m continuing my popsicle kick to celebrate July 4th! I know it’s a couple days early, but it’s to give you time to make them! If you don’t have a popsicle mold,Read more

Potato chips and chocolate chips rolled up into the perfectly sweet and salty sticky bun.

Potato chip, Chocolate chip Sticky Buns (made with pizza dough)

  Please pardon the excessively long title…I had no idea what to call this beauty! I mean, just look at it! LOOK AT IT! To be honest, it’s not the prettiest thing, but it does not lack in the excessive/over-the-top department. I was inspired by the sweet/salty combination of chocolate covered potato chips, so IRead more

S'mores pudding pops made with toasted marshmallows, graham cracker crumbs, and chocolate shell

S’mores Pudding Pop

  Campfire s’mores are one of those things that sound so appealing and I always find myself wanting to make it happen, but in reality, it’s kind of messy, hard to make perfectly, and there’s the whole mosquito bite issue. Let me just tell you that when I get a mosquito bite, it is notRead more

Cantaloupe discs topped with yogurt and fruit

Cantaloupe donut

I don’t know who comes up with such crazy creative ideas. For example, watermelon pizza– even though it’s kind of blasphemous to call it pizza when there’s zero cheese involved, it’s so inventive, pretty, and good for you! So I decided that if watermelon pizza can be a thing, giant CANTALOUPE DONUT can also be aRead more

Avocado Smoothie Bowl

Avocado Smoothie Bowl

I eat breakfast every single day! I just don’t understand how people can leave the house without eating something. I’m pretty sure both my body and brain would just shut down, and I would stop functioning like a normal human being. Not only is breakfast an absolute necessity for me, but it is my number one choiceRead more

Eggplant ricotta roll-ups smothered in simple tomato sauce and baked with cheese!

Eggplant Ricotta Roll-Ups

So, I thought after the first post, everything would magically get 238 times easier. I was wrong. I still find myself stumbling through the whole blog thing, googling anything and everything that goes wrong, and making the same realization that I really don’t know what I’m doing about every 5 minutes. That being said, IRead more
