April Favorites

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.*

Deviled Eggs Two Ways

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.

Blue and White Easter Dress Roundup

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!

Orange Cardamom Rolls

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.

Two Days in Denver

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!

Look o’ the Irish — St. Patrick’s Day Look

Today I’m celebrating by making Irish soda bread and corned beef with cabbage, potatoes, carrots, and onions (I’m trying out the Instant Pot for this year’s Irish feast!), and an apple spice cake with whisky sauce for dessert. Of course, I’m also celebrating by wearing a little bit of green.

Before I start making a mess of my kitchen and outfit, I wanted to share my St. Patrick’s Day look.

My Nightly Skincare Routine

My nightly routine is multi-stepped but quick. After a long day, the last thing I want to do is spend forever preparing for bed. This routine takes me about 5 minutes, and the products are affordable and effective.
