Parmesan & Sea Salt Popcorn

I’m currently in a deep, loving relationship with Homeland. Have you watched it? I know I’m years behind, but Gilmore Girls and Parenthood took me years to get through. My binge watching sessions were cut short by the boat loads of work, vacation, events, and various obligations over the past few weeks. Life can get in the way of some really important things, you know? This here blog has reluctantly taken the back burner lately. I’ve still been creating content,…

Crudité Platter with Whipped Feta

I went to dinner with a group of girlfriends last Saturday for restaurant week. As we chatted about our 8 a.m. workout classes over our salads I realized that man, we had evolved. Six years ago we were piling as many of us that could fit into one car to make Sonic $50 corn dog runs. We were taco Tuesday regulars, washing them down with Bud Light and sleeping until 11 instead of hitting an early morning gym session. While…

Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows

After a few months of holiday eating, it was v. important that I got back on the health train again. I’m spending more time in the kitchen, being intentional about the meals I prepare. Through the years, I’ve gone through many phases with my eating habits and thoughts, some good, some bad. I’m in a place now that I try to just make the best decisions for what makes my body feel best. I make sure to eat my greens…
