Isn't there something special about slowly waking up on a Saturday, brewing up a pot of coffee, and making a big ol' batch of fluffy pancakes? Each time I make a batch, I try a new recipe. It's fun for me and it's helped me discover what I look for in a good … [Read more...]
Start your day off right. And by right I mean deliciously.
Smoothies and I are in a long term relationship. My mom first started making them for me when I was in high school.

I am not a morning person. If I don't have my 8 hours of sleep, good luck trying to get me out of bed. But as much as I like my ZzZzs, I don't always get as many as I like. Those are the days where I especially need an easy and quick breakfast. If I haven't made my Overnight Oats the night before, then I turn to my other trusty favorite: Greek yogurt with berries and two hard-boiled eggs. Now, there is a tiny bit of prep that goes into this meal. Every Sunday, I … [Read more...]
