I know people scoff at the phrase “easy as pie” because making pie doesn’t seem all that easy… but this Dutch Apple is so worth the work. I guarantee this pie will be better than any that you buy in a store, and it’s so good that it will have you rethinking the whole “apple pie is for fall” thing.
I’ve always been a very on the go person, and caffeine is my favorite food group, so this Matcha Protein Smoothie is perfect for me. This smoothie has it all — fruit, protein, a touch of sweetness from the honey, and a jolt of caffeine from the matcha.
April is drawing to a close, so it’s time channel my inner Maria and share a few of my favorite things from this month.
*Cue me twirling around on a mountain top holding my April Favorites a la The Sound of Music.*
Now that Easter is over, you might find yourself up to your ears with prettily-colored hard-boiled eggs. Not sure what to do with them all? I’ve got two deviled eggs recipes — Classic and Garlic Aioli (mayo-free!) — right here. These eggs are so good, that you may actually want to boil a few more.
For Easter this year, I brought two kinds of cupcakes and my spring dress game. I love this blue and white dress, which was made for sunny spring days, and I got tons of compliments on it. Since so many people asked about it, I found some similar pieces and linked them here. Most are in the $20-$30 price range!
These Orange Cardamom Rolls combine my childhood love for orange cinnamon rolls and my newfound obsession with cardamom into one deliciously fluffy and flavorful breakfast treat. Top these fluffy buns off with gooey, zesty, orange cream cheese frosting, and you’ll be ruined for all other cinnamon rolls… I’m only a little sorry about that.
One of my best friends moved to Colorado some time ago, but I was only recently able to take advantage of her generous invitation to come stay with her for a long weekend. It took a while for us to finally get out there, but it was a blast and worth the wait. Not only was the weather great , but we went to an awesome Dodgers and Rockies game, went to our first movie party, and enjoyed more than our fair share of delicious local beer and food. Here is our two-day itinerary, including where and what we ate!
My next monthly installments of favorites is here! This month, find goods for the home, add some wow to dinner, a Free People Dupe, and more!
It’s been five years since my mom died, and I’m finally realizing that grief is a lifelong process. Today, I’m finally ready to talk about the process and what life after losing her means.
In college, I was given a memoir assignment. I recently lost my mom and wasn’t sure I was ready to write about her. Ultimately, I chose to, and it was a cathartic experience and I’m glad I did it. I would like to share that story with you now.
