Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes

AMAZING 30-minute Dinner | Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes #vegan #glutenfree

Friends, it’s been a while.

How have you been? Do you love this time of year? I do. What have you been eating these days? Salads? Chocolate? Are you getting outside in this lovely, brisk weather? Are you feeling well? I’d love to know.

Fall makes me all emotional and introspective. I once cried for an hour after a scenic drive when the leaves were turning. We were listening to Greg Laswell. I got all grateful and started weeping. Fingers crossed it’s an annual occurrence. Sometimes you just need a good cry.

Lately I’ve been eating lots of plants and less sugar. And I’ve been walking and running a lot. And books! I’ve finished a lot of books recently, which isn’t typical for me, this one being my favorite.

I’ve also been listening to a lot of podcasts. Podcasts always impact me. Especially this one on sustainability, this one on hospitality, and this one on minimalism. Good stuff.

Simple, 3-step breakfast potatoes. The BEST breakfast potatoes I've ever had #vegan #glutenfree

Best Ever Vegan Breakfast Potatoes

When John and I started seeing each other, we did a lot of breakfast dates. We both had roommates and it seemed the only way to spend uninterrupted time together was to get up early and share a meal before everyone else woke up. Lucky for us, breakfast was kind of our thing (and still is). Even though John's not a huge morning person, I can always lure him out of bed with these perfect, ... Read More →

Coconut Gin and Tonics! Refreshing, bubbly, naturally sweet and just 4 ingredients!

Coconut Gin and Tonics

A life list. Have you ever written one? If you have, you know how difficult it is. Maybe at the ripe old age of 28 I've simply done it all (sarcastic eye roll). But in all honesty, I like the person I'm becoming each day. I like that I try to be intentional about my life and my work, and when John and I say we want to do something we actually try and do it. I like that we spend every new ... Read More →

Easy Baked Rosemary Beet Chips! Fast, healthy and SO simple #vegan #glutenfree

Baked Rosemary Beet Chips

I distinctly remember one December in college when my dad took me to his office Christmas party at a dinner theatre. I hardly remember the show, but I do remember the buffet which seemed to extend into eternity with overcooked vegetables. Among the saddest victims were Brussels sprouts and beets. What is it about these beautiful, delicious veggies that makes people use and abuse them? They are ... Read More →

French fries. We have an on again off again relationship. Meaning, I stuff my face with them once a month, then swear off them until we meet again next month. Thankfully, however, I've recently mastered the art of making fries at home super crispy style sans frying. Score! Now the two of us can see each other much more often - thank goodness. ...
