Remember those No-Bake Lemon Tarts I made for you a few weeks ago??? With their incredibly smooth and tart filling, they stayed on my mind a lot longer than they lasted in my kitchen. They disappeared SO quickly and to such rave reviews, I was immediately craving another batch.

I also heard from a few of you who made and loved them. As I was chatting with one girl about how much she enjoyed them, I proposed the idea of wanting to change the crust around a bit. She concurred, and we agreed something a little graham cracker-crust like would be fabulous. [Read more…]

I’ve probably mentioned it before, but lemon desserts typically are not my favorite. They have the tendency to be way too sweet, with way too much sugar compared to the amount of tart lemon.

If I’m having a lemon dessert, I want IN YOUR FACE super tart lemon flavor. Don’t give me something that tastes like a lemon candy or something with so much sugar it makes me pucker up for the wrong reasons. [Read more…]

I’ve been on a major oatmeal kick recently! Since I did Whole30, my go-to breakfast has changed a bit. I used to eat Greek yogurt with berries and granola pretty much every single morning.

After coming off Whole30 though, I’m realizing that dairy might not be my best friend. It tends to disrupt my stomach, and I’ve been generally feeling better when I avoid dairy. Which is a huge bummer (goodbye ice cream and cheese), but I’m making do so far. [Read more…]

Citrus season coming to a close is making me really sad. It’s also making me stock up on all the local, organic, seasonal citrus I can find.

If you looked at my fridge right now, you’d see both crisper drawers FULL of citrus. I’ve got clementines, tangerines, tangelos, cara cara oranges, navel oranges, pink grapefruits, and oro blanco grapefruits. You’d think I lived with a big group of citrus loving people…but it’s all for me. 😍 [Read more…]

I’ve been sitting here staring at the blank screen for a few minutes now, wondering what to type. I’m in a coffee shop and the guy next to me keeps giving me weird looks, cause I’m just sitting here staring, not doing anything…soooo I had to start typing something.

Sooo…I feel pretty bad for everyone who has been stuck in a pile of snow this week, with their power out, and blizzards swirling all around, and temperatures that are way too cold for me.

Especially because here in San Diego, we’ve been having an absolutely beautiful week of sunshine and more than a few of those days have passed 80ºF. In fact, as I’m writing this, it’s 8:15 PM and I’m sitting outside in a dress and I’m not even chilly. [Read more…]

I could do happy dances in the sunshine about how excited I am for Spring, and soon enough, summer! Not that we’ve had much of a brutal winter here in San Diego, but it has been abnormally rainy.

I’m definitely ready for the sunshine to come back…that’s one of the reasons I moved back to California, after all. We had some nice 78°F weather the other day, so I think it’s fair to say that the sunshine is returning. [Read more…]
