BUTTERMILK BLUEBERRY BANANA BREAD

i’ve not been much for spending a lot of time in the kitchen lately. this pregnancy has been taking a bit of a toll on my body but it’s certainly not taking a toll on my cravings. and this is one of those things that i have been craving a lot of lately. this homemade bread bread that is coated with bananas and blueberries (and i’ve been throwing in chocolate chips too). it’s been a…

LET’S CALL HER THE RED GRAPEFRUIT …

okay so now that we’ve established i’m the worst drink namer ever let’s get to it. this drink was a total accidental thing and now it’s probably the only thing i’m going to drink this summer. here it is! i mixed one can of grapefruit la croix with grenadine (i used rose’s brand) for an afternoon reading session. it was seriously so tasty and so refreshing. that night andrew and i were getting ready for…

THREE DELICIOUS & SIMPLE RECIPES

i mentioned in my goals post last week that i want to continue eating healthy. i’ve really jumped on the healthier food bandwagon and wanted to share these super simple little treat recipes i’ve been using the last couple weeks to curb my sweet tooth. now mind you i did not cut anything out from my diet; if i want a doughnut or custard, you better believe i’m going to have it still. but treats…

If I’m being honest, I don’t have a favorite meal.  I seriously will eat everything and anything you put in front of me.  I’ve never been much of a picky eater so it’s pretty easy for me.…

Sauteed Spinach and Garlic

Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros.  Also known as the best breakfast ever. The first time I had this was Mothers Day of 2011 at a restaurant that we waited way too long to get our food at.  I’d never heard of it before but I figured it would be pretty darn hard to mess up eggs and salsa so it was worth a shot.  Oh my god.  I fell in love. Fast forward three years and I heard…
