Spring Rolls & Noodle Salad

Spring Rolls & Noodle Salad

I’ve been searching for some light, healthy and paleo friendly recipes that I can make for me and Brandon to enjoy. The tricky part about that is since we don’t have a kitchen, the key factor is they need to be easy to make. So you can imagine my excitement…

My New Favorite Cookies

Recently I have made some major dietary changes. Without getting into the details today, I will begin by saying I have completely transformed my eating habits by following the Paleo lifestyle. Although it was very difficult at first, eating the Paleo way has proved to really change my life for…
“Pick Me Up” Cupcakes

“Pick Me Up” Cupcakes

The other night I was really craving chocolate cupcakes, but I was not feeling up to the task. To give you a quick back story, I had been battling an intestinal infection, and haven’t been feeling up to baking or cooking for the past 3 weeks.  Brandon was sweet enough…

Hazelnut Cream Scones + Giveaway {Closed}

Valentines Day is this week.  I’ve really never been one who necessarily enjoys or looks forward to Valentines Day. *gasp!* But before you get all huffy with me hear me out.  Sure, the perks of Valentines Day are great don’t get me wrong. I just think love should be appreciated…
3 Delicious Ideas for Leftover Eggnog

Pumpkin Spice Tarts

Today is October 31st. As I sit here, drinking my coffee and savoring this delicious pumpkin spice tart I baked last night, I’m reflecting on this past month and the significance that this day brings to so many Americans.  Growing up, my siblings and I were not allowed to celebrate…
