Smoked Salmon & Vegetable Egg Casserole Recipe

Apparently I still have brunch on the brain, because the only thing that seemed appealing for dinner last night was an egg casserole :) Ya’ll know how I roll — as simple as possible is key.

The Perfect Sunday

Yesterday was just about the perfect Sunday — it involved playing with Tina, ice cream at Maple View Farm, and biking with Matt in the beautiful NC sunshine (which rudely hid until Tina left, lame)! (Disregard the awkward self-timer photo, heh) Our day began in Carrboro, the cute hippie town right next to Chapel Hill. I took Tina to one of my Continue Reading …

How to Make Brussels Sprouts Delicious

I’ve been having a bit of a battle with Brussels sprouts lately. Every time someone else makes them for me, I love them. But when I try to make them myself, they suck and are too bitter.

LARABAR Love

A couple weeks ago, I got an email from LÄRABAR asking if I’d be interested in reviewing some of their bars on my blog. I responded immediately — hell, yes! I love me some LARABAR. When I don’t have time to make my own bars, LARABARs are one of my go-to brands  because they aren’t candy bars disguised as healthy snack bars. Their bars Continue Reading …

The Leftover Special – Packed Lunch Style!

You guys know I love creatively re-vamping leftovers. Case in point? Yesterday’s packed lunch. I had a fridge full of random leftovers, but nothing concrete enough to just be eaten alone. Clearly, it was time to get creative! First — I layered some baby spinach in a large tupperware. Veggie? Check! Next, I threw in these cumin-scented baked Continue Reading …
