Farewell Summer!

Summer, where did you go? Where you ever here?  I looked up and I saw you heading into the autumn sunshine without so much as a “goodbye”. When you become a parent, life moves at the fastest pace you have ever experienced. Perhaps it’s because you suddenly have a “reason” for everything you do. Honestly, I…

My Favorite Turkey Lettuce Wraps

My mother is obsessed with PF Changs Turkey Lettuce Wraps–and justifiably so. When I had my son, she spoiled me by cooking for me–and that’s how I got my first introduction to these bad boys.

Raw Cookie Dough Bites (From Almond Milk Pulp)

Now that I know how easy it is to make almond milk, I have already made about 5 batches over the last two weeks! Honestly, it is SO delicious. The consistency is much creamier than store bought almond milk–and I am seriously blown away by the taste. When I was finished blending and squeezing the…

Homemade Almond Milk-Easy as 1,2,3!

HOMEMADE ALMOND MILK I didn’t realize how EASY it is to make home made Almond Milk! Literally, soak, blend, squeeze…oh and stir (so 4 steps technically!). Last summer, I ordered a “nut milk bag” (fancy name, right?)– Finally used it this morning! I thought it was going to be quite a process, but it was so easy….

Leaving the Anchor and Learning to Swim

 There is something about Winter… For years, winter has always been a difficult time for me. I was never really sure why, but each year as November draws to an end, I feel my skin cringe for the dry/dead winter to come. I think it has much to do with staying inside (not getting enough…
