DIY Hot Chocolate Bar

DIY Hot Chocolate Bar

I wanted to create a cozy centerpiece for my Kitchen table, while also freeing up some cabinet space. Let me tell you, the possibilities for this Hot Chocolate Bar are endless and it ended up being more of a Coffee, Tea and Hot Chocolate Bar. I added a few holiday touches for the season, but [...]

My COVID-19 Hobby: Indoor House Plants

My COVID-19 Hobby: Indoor House Plants

As we settle into our new home, one of my favorite things to do has been adding a touch of green to each room. Although we started new jobs in a new city this year, life has completely changed due to the stay at home orders. I found I had some extra time on my [...]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care... okay, tbh, they were hung before Thanksgiving. We had so much fun decorating for our first Christmas in our new home! I absolutely love our fireplace! All of our decorations are inexpensive and most were DIY projects you can easily re-create at home. Of course, most [...]

Mushroom “Cauliflower” Risotto paired with Broccoli Bone Broth

While we attempt to navigate life in a new city, life in a new home and life in a global pandemic- our days look drastically different than they did six months ago. While one of my favorite things to do is frequent local restaurants, we have had more time on our hands to create unique [...]

Fondue Pot Series: Spinach Artichoke Dip

Fondue Pot Series: Spinach Artichoke Dip

I feel like- if there's one fact everyone knows about me solely from social media, it's that I'm obsessed with chocolate and cheese. Seriously, if I'm not posting about eating chocolate, I'm posting about eating cheese. One of my favorite gifts I have received is my Swiss ceramic fondue pot made for both chocolate and [...]

Adding your own Personal Touch to Home Decor

Jon and I recently moved across the country (again) and this time it was during a pandemic. All things considered, the move went pretty well- but it definitely was not easy to adjust living in a new home and in a new city during "lockdown." When we left Texas, we left a lot of the [...]

Bottom Round Roast Recipe

Bottom Round Roast Recipe

Bottom Round Roasts are one of the cheapest cuts of meat you can buy, but it doesn't have to taste like one! I really am not a fan of roasts, normally I would load it up with ketchup once its cooked- but I found a few tips online and combined them to create my own [...]

Oven Roasted Artichokes

Oven Roasted Artichokes

I feel like only 10% of the population has ever eaten an artichoke, and I don't mean in Spin Art Dip. Have you ever seen an artichoke? I was super intimidated to try and cook one... let alone peel the leaves off one by one and eat it like a savage. Artichokes are one of [...]

Simple Eye of Round Roast Recipe

Simple Eye of Round Roast Recipe

Next up on my Beef cooking adventure (can you believe I was a Vegetarian for five years...) I tackled an Eye of Round Roast. Truth be told, I never knew there were so many cuts of beef- I thought there were like, two types of steak and ground beef (HA!) There's so much you can [...]

Skillet Series: Skinny Blueberry Crisp

Skillet Series: Skinny Blueberry Crisp

One of my new favorite kitchen gadgets I'm going to feature more often are my cast iron skillets. At first I was hesitant to incorporate cast iron skillets into my kitchen gadget collection because I didn't really think there was a difference from using any other pan, plus they're heavy and I thought cleaning and [...]
