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…]

This Raspberry Acai Bowl is a refreshing & delicious breakfast, especially when you add your favorite toppings! This healthy breakfast is ready in a few minutes.Let’s be honest – I’ve become a little bit obsessed with acai bowls. If you follow me on Instagram stories or Snapchat, you may have noticed that I make them all the time. Like, at least a couple times a week. They’ve also crept their way out of breakfast territory and into lunch and dinner territory, too.

This Peanut Butter Acai Bowl is one of my favorites that I make over and over again because hello, I’m peanut butter obsessed. But I’ve made room for a lot of other favorites too – namely, this raspberry acai bowl! [Read more…]

We’re officially post-Labor Day, so even though we haven’t reached the official end of summer quite yet, it feels like we’ve passed the unofficial conclusion of the sunny season. Even here in San Diego, though the days are still warm, a bit of that fall breeze in starting to roll in with a bite of chill in night air.

And even though I’m basking in every last bit of sunshine, I’m starting to get really excited about all that fall brings, specifically to the dessert table: apples, cinnamon, pumpkin, and lots and lots of chocolate! [Read more…]

This recipe is Paleo, gluten free + refined sugar free.Before we talk about the swoon-worthy Raspberry Rhubarb Almond Bars staring at you, I have to make a little announcement! I haven’t officially mentioned it yet, but now that my moving van is scheduled and there’s boxes sitting in my living room, it finally feels real – and close. I’m moving back to San Diego! For those that don’t know, I was born and raised in San Diego, and I moved up to Washington when I was 17 to go to college at University of Puget Sound.

After graduating almost exactly a year ago (uhhh…WHERE did that year go?!?), I moved to Seattle, where I’ve run this blog, lived with one of my best friends, and baked my heart out for the past year with a beautiful view of the sound and a super cute patio (which I’m going to miss a bunch).

Most people either love the holiday or hate it, but I find myself a little indifferent this year – I’m happily single, glad to spend the day seeing the new movie Single with some of my best friends and devouring something with lots of chocolate.

Whichever way you like to celebrate, I think we can all agree that one of the best parts of Valentine’s Day is spoiling yourself and/or the ones you love with delicious goodies.  [Read more…]

And these photos are the first photos I’m posting that I took using it. What do you think?!

I went pro, and bought myself the Canon 6D and the 100mm f/2.8L Macro Lens (those are affiliate links). It cost a whole lot of money and it sort of hurt to pay it, I was due for an upgrade and I’m glad I splurged and got a really great camera and lens. I still barely know how to use it, but since I’m coming from another Canon (the Rebel T3 – discontinued, here’s the newer version; and 50mm f/1.8 lens), the learning curve isn’t too steep.

These pops, filled with raspberries, are also vegan!In the summer, one of my favorite ways to get my chocolate fix is through a fudgesicle. As a kid and to this day, my mom always has them in the freezer and they’re still one of my favorite snacks to grab when I’m at her house. They’re smooth, creamy, and just chocolatey enough to satisfy any of your chocolate cravings.

I’d always heard that you could make homemade fudgesicles just by freezing chocolate pudding. What?! I’ve always been super curious to try, and curiosity finally got the best of me. I finally gave in and bought a popsicle mold (though you could just as easily make these in paper cups + popsicle sticks).
