If you read last Friday's blog, you probably are realizing a theme. PUMPKIN. Since the last post was all about homemade recipes, which you can find here, I thought it would be great to give you a run down on my favorite pumpkin flavored products from Trader Joe's.
Are you ready for the best time of year? I know I am. I love crisp fall mornings, and the colors changing on the trees. But most of all, I love it because it means, it's the start of BAKING SEASON!
Recently, my husband and I had the opportunity to vacation in Kauai. A first for both of us, and we came back home with some great memories.
This blog is contains two recipes I have tried, and found either to be Great, Good, or Bad. With everyone sharing recipes on social media, I thought this would be a fun way to help you determine which recipes are actually worth your time.
Lately, I've been obsessed with a few items that just make life more flavorful - one of them being homemade popcorn. Sure microwave popcorn tastes good, but it usually makes my stomach feel awful after eating it. Also, microwave popcorn is full of additives that are unhealthy and in my humble opinion, affect the taste of the popcorn.
Make no mistake, it is very unsafe to hike in the full sun, in almost 90 degree weather without the proper amount of water. Our group had the proper amount, and we all ran out of water at the end of the hike, even though we packed more than we thought we would need. This got me thinking, if beginners don't respect the dangers of hiking in such heat, maybe I should write a few quick tips on what you should do if you go hiking in the summer to get that cool Instagram picture. I know it seems like common sense to a lot of us, but it's important for those going on their first high intensity hike to respect nature and protect yourself so you can stay healthy.
This post is long over due. I saw the Wonder Woman movie on the Friday it debuted, but I was fearful of giving my readers spoilers. So, if you still haven't had a chance to see the movie and don't wish to be spoiled, please skip this post.
It has been about two weeks since I posted about my tiny patio garden, and I know you all are DYING for an update. Well, I think I'll just let these pictures speak for them selves.
A few weekends ago, my husband and I enjoyed a getaway trip to Big Bear Lake. I had never been to Big Bear, and as a Northern California girl who loves Lake Tahoe, I was eager to see what all the fuss is about.
I thought I'd share with you a new endeavor of mine: a herb and vegetable patio garden! Since summer is coming up, and I love adding fresh ingredients to the food I make, this is the perfect time to start gardening. Or so I think. Only time will only tell if I have what it takes to make a patio garden thrive.
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting a diner that is so charming, I just can't keep it to myself! If you are planning to visit Orange County this summer, do yourself a favor and eat a hearty meal at Galley Cafe in Newport.
Do you like cake? Who doesn't like cake?! (Okay, I think I know one person...You know who you are.) When it comes to making a cake from scratch the pressure can be enormous - especially if you don't have time to mess one batch up and make another.
