As a blogger I think it is important to check in with yourself sometimes - who am I, why do I write, what do I want to write about, and so on. Since it has been a while since I have done something like this, I decided to do a little 'get to know me' post so you can learn more about what inspires my blog and the type of content I want to bring to you - my readers! I hope you enjoy, and thank you so much for following along!
Just because a food is entirely plant-based absolutely does not mean it is flavorless or unfulfilling! But often times people think that about vegetarian cooking, but I think they just don't know where to start! So, I am sharing two of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks that helped spring me into a more vegetarian lifestyle at home.
I wanted to think of a tasteful theme for my dad's 60th birthday celebration... an 'over the hill' theme would not be well received! After some research I found whiskey theme 'aged to perfection' parties, and I thought, why not do a wine one?! So came together our "Aged to Perfection" week in McMinnville Oregon.
Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies - I think because they aren't simply sweet. The addition of cream of tartar adds a different flavor profile that most cookies don't have. This recipe is delicious and I hope you save it for later!
This week instead of sharing a "Meatless Monday" post, I thought I would share a few simple things that we did that helped us easily transition into eating more vegetarian meals in our household. The future is plant-based and we are trying to get on board!
I think goal writing is so important for many reasons. It keeps you accountable to yourself. Writing things down can help declutter your mind. It also gives you a huge sense of accomplishment as you are able to check things off your done list too! I write my goals down every new year, so this year I am simply sharing them with you. Here are 20 things I plan to do to make 2020 an amazing year!
Over the years, there is one recipe I make that I am overwhelmingly asked to share every year around the holidays, and this is it! This sweet potato casserole is so easy to make, and though it is not healthy by any means, I find it to be the right mix of sweetness and savory. It was in demand to the point where my recipe card went missing for a while, but has since been returned and now I can blog it, haha! I hope you enjoy my favorite sweet potato casserole recipe!
Being a big-time boater, the winter can leave me missing the sunshine and the water I so frequently enjoy in summer! So, I decided to rack my brain and come up with some inspiration on how to still enjoy boating this winter, and get your family excited for next summer's boating season too!
Christmas is a magical time of year, but it also can be a very wasteful one. In this post I bring you 10 easy ways you can live a more sustainable lifestyle this holiday season, while still having all the fun! I hope this inspires you to hope on the sustainable living bandwagon and find a few ways to help the planet this holiday season!
Life has been crazy lately, but hey when isn't it really?! I have had work events, work travel, a baby's first birthday, a wedding anniversary, and on top of it all we are selling our house and moving! So much stuff going on but it is all good. Full updates are in the post, thank you for reading along and happy fall!
When you have the cutest baby you want to have the cutest party for her first birthday! We decided to throw our little one's at the pumpkin patch and it was basically the most adorable thing ever, so I decided to blog about how we tied it all together!
