Hey! I’m doing another recipe update of a recipe that was posted a while back, but deserves some new photos and some new love – I did keep the post written below the same though, for nostalgia’s sake ūüėä. These Paleo Banana Blueberry Muffins definitely fit the bill to get a makeover – they’re a favorite of a whole bunch of readers, and they’re so darn delicious.

I photographed them as mini muffins when they were originally posted in March 2015, but I made them full size this time around. More muffin to love! They freeze perfectly, and you can just heat one in the microwave for a super quick and delicious breakfast treat. Hope you love these! [Read more…]

I feel like I’ve rekindled my love for baking, post-Whole30. Not that it even left, but after not being able to make many of the recipes I dreamed up during my baking-free month, it feels¬†so¬†good to get back into the kitchen to create a whole bunch of new dessert goodness.

Testing, tasting, and tweaking recipes are some of my favorite things (obviously) and after a month without it, I really missed the process of developing new recipes. Of course, I did it during my Whole30 with my Whole30-approved recipes, but I wasn’t testing nearly as much as normal. [Read more…]

Is it just me, or is this year already flying by? I feel like we just started 2017, yet somehow we’re already creeping in on Valentine’s Day and before we can blink, it’s going to be Thanksgiving.

I remember when adults used to tell me to appreciate the time I had as a kid, because as soon as I grew up, time would¬†fly¬†right by. I would giggle and disregard it, wishing still for time to speed up until my next birthday or whatever. I should’ve listened. [Read more…]

Smoothie bowls: yay or nay? I LOVE¬†them, which is obvious based on the number of smoothie bowl and acai bowl recipes I’ve posted on the site, as well as the frequency with which I make them for breakfast and go out to local juice bars to get them.

But, some people don’t see the point. “Why do you need to EAT your smoothie with a spoon?” they say. “Who has time to sit and eat a smoothie?” they ask. I’ve seen smoothie bowls on a whole bunch of lists of food trends that have gotta go in 2017. [Read more…]

These snack bars have an oatmeal crust, a tangy lemon mixed berry filling, and they're gluten-free + vegan.Let’s talk about snack time. Are you a big¬†into snacking, or are you more of a stick-to-your-meals kind of person? I do a little of both – on the days when I’m recipe developing and testing, I’m snacking on baked treats all day and don’t even really eat real meals until dinner.

On the other days, I’m usually a stick-to-my-meals person, but there’s got to be some sort of sweet treat during the day. I’m a baking blogger after all, so it’s okay, right?! [Read more…]

I’m feeling…conflicted, as the change of season always does to me,¬†especially in San Diego.¬†

I forgot how disorienting the changing seasons are in San Diego, mostly because…the season’s don’t really change. It’s pretty much: really sunny, sunny, a little breezy, and back to sunny. It’s hard to get into a Fall/Winter mindset when the sun is still shining and it’s 80 degrees out, ya know? [Read more…]
