Recipe Box: Maple Spice Granola

Recipe Box: Thanksgiving Guide 2016

Growing up with digestive issues, holidays were a notorious struggle for me. I loved the social experience of coming together to cook and share a feast around the table, but the food invariably left me feeling less than great.

Recipe Box: Summer Popsicle Trio

Last summer, my friends and I gathered at my house to have a “popsicle-off” – a big midsummer popsicle tasting party/competition.

This colder weather outside (read: sleeting rain+ice storms!) has signaled a shift for me to head inside and start finding little creative projects to fill my weekends. Lately, it’s been a mixture of watercolor painting, podcast listening, making my way through that giant stack of books by my bed, and well, of course, fall inspired-baking.

Welcome Summer! I’ve just returned from a long weekend in Santa Fe + Taos celebrating summer solstice with my sweet sisters and preparing for our Spirit of the Rose | Chakra Awakening Retreat Journey this August.
