What I am Loving Lately – November 2015

November 20, 2015 2 comments

Hello! Happy Friday! This week was been nuts at work, so I am really looking forward to a super low-key weekend around here. Travis and I have no plans, and I couldn’t be more excited. Tonight we’ll probably eat leftovers and binge watch some TV on Hulu. I know, crazy stuff, you guys!   I thought I’d kick off this Friday with a list of things I am loving lately. Let’s […]

Is this the longest cookie name ever? I really couldn’t shorten it – these cookies have ALL THE INGREDIENTS. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a few photos of these cookies over the weekend. I hadn’t made a new cookie recipe in awhile, because I usually just stick to our two favorites: my amazing Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chips Cookies and these Gluten-Free Almond Butter Cookies. But this weekend, […]

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Hi friends! I am proud to say that I stuck to my November Goals (in last week’s blog post) all week long. Meal planning last week was a huge success! I made a bunch of new recipes that turned out SO well. I can’t wait to make them again and photograph them for the blog. On Saturday, I meal planned again for the upcoming week. I went to Whole Food […]

New Week, New Month, New Goals

Hi everyone! Happy Monday AND happy November! Let’s cut right to it. I am going to get completely real with you this morning. I feel like in every blog post recently, I’ve talked about how busy I’ve been. Ever since we got back from England at the end of August I haven’t felt like my healthy self. It’s almost as if I never got back on track after vacation…even though it’s over […]

Brie Crostini with Spiced Raisin Compote

The holidays are upon us! I don’t know about you, but every store I’ve been in recently (CVS, Home Goods…) already has Christmas decorations out. I thought that always started after Halloween, no? Since I am trying to keep up, I started testing a few new holiday recipes last weekend. You’re going to LOVE these Baked Brie Crostini with Spiced Raisin Compote. They’re the perfect little hors d’oeurve for a holiday […]

Oh mannnnnnn where has this month gone? October has been so busy for me. – We’ve had a ton of visitors – We had an ant infestation in our apartment (don’t even get me started on this one…) – I’ve been working a lot – I had an eye infection + Travis was really sick. Bleh! – And it’s been ridiculously hot in Los Angeles. Travis and I both feel […]

Going to be 100% real right now. I make and photograph a lot of recipes that don’t make it to the blog. Why? Because not everything comes out as delicious and beautiful as I would hope. I sometimes spend hours cooking and photographing food that ends up tasting bland or frankly, disgusting. Thank goodness for my trusty taste-tester, Travis, who can be honest with me about whether or not a recipe is blog-worthy. I thought […]
