Enjoy!!

I’m less than six weeks from graduating from college. How in the world did that happen? It feels like last year that I was writing a post about brioche and my college decision (throwback alert) and whipping up treats in my freshman year dorm room microwave for my (short) series on Dorm Life Eats.

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…]

So this past weekend, I drove up to Anaheim for the Natural Products Expo. It was my first time going, but I had heart lots about it – how it’s huge, overwhelming, and packed with every natural food, beauty, and health company.

But no description could have prepared me for it. With almost 3,000 exhibitors, there really was every single natural product you could think of. I arrived on Friday and wandered into the madness aimlessly. I was there by myself, and for the first half hour, I felt like a lost lamb, wide-eyed and wandering through the crowds. [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…]

Before we get to breakfast, I need to tell you guys a little story about what happened the other day. I’ve spoken a lot of my wonderful dog, Bear. He’s a giant, fluffy, loveable pup. He’s been my best buddy for just about half my life.

After moving home to San Diego this past summer, I managed to find an apartment that let me have a big dog, so I stole Bear from my dad’s and brought him to live with me so he could keep me company while I’m home baking and working. [Read more…]

Since coming off of my first Whole30, I haven’t gone too crazy with eating everything I wasn’t allowed to during it. In fact, most of my meals are still compliant. I like eating that way, and even though I’m not crazy strict about it, I’m still trying to eat more cleanly and as healthily as possible, while still keeping things delicious :)

Of course, I’m tasting my baked goods, but trying not to eat too much of them, and keeping things mostly Paleo too, so I’m not throwing my body too off track. One of the only off limits foods that’s made it’s way firmly back into my diet is peanut butter. [Read more…]
