Spring Break!

Pin It!

Some college kids party it up in Miami for Spring Break. Others take a Caribbean Cruise. (Hello Chocolate-Covered little sister!) But I am the luckiest girl of all, because I get to spend Spring Break this year with the cutest kids ever: my cousins! Hmmm, something’s wrong.  They look too tame in the picture. This […]

Oscars Food And Fashion

Pin It!

Sometimes, the Oscars can be a bit dull. That’s why, if you’re going to watch them, it’s best to track down a few friends to watch with you. I think my friends like finding any excuse for a party. The snack I brought with me to the Oscars party: Raw Mounds Bars Hearts I *think* […]

Raw Cheesecake

Pin It!

Not just any raw cheesecake, either. Raw Banana Split Cheesecake with a hot chocolate crust! Don’t let the long name fool you; this “cheesecake” could not be easier–or quicker–to make! Raw Banana Split Cheesecake (If you want a traditional-sized cake, double the recipe) 1 cup raw cashews (120g) 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 1/2 a medium […]

Orthorexia Nervosa: The New Eating Disorder

Pin It!

Thanks to many of your blog posts, I learned that last week was National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. You had some great, insightful posts on intuitive eating and on celebrating our bodies for the amazing things they enable us to do. When one thinks of eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating come to mind. But […]

Pancakes for a Princess… and Mr. Messy

The other day, I was privileged to receive one of the cutest emails ever! It just made me smile so much that I had to share some of it with all of you (after asking permission, of course). Without further ado, I give you the sweet reader, Kerrie: I tried your Brownie Batter Pancakes today… They […]

You’re the Peanut to my Butter

National Chocolate-Covered Day, National Carrot Cake Day, National Oatmeal Day: I keep missing these days until after-the-fact, when someone tells me about them. So this time, I’m going to be early! National Peanut Butter Day (March 1st) is just too good to forget. Banana Butter Peanut Butter Cup Babies I love you, peanut butter!  Enjoy your well-deserved day […]

Mounds Bar Pancake Roll Ups

Pin It!

Two days ago marked the birthday of a very special friend of mine.  She seriously is one of the kindest, most selfless girls I’ve ever been lucky enough to meet.  Because my friend is always so sweet to others, three of us decided that, for her birthday, we ought to reciprocate some of that kindness. […]

If the running shoe fits… buy it in every color!

Pin It!

Back in October, I mentioned that I had an appointment with a Pedorthist to get custom orthotics made. The appointment went really well; I learned a lot about feet from a man who really knew his stuff! And I’ve happily been wearing my orthotics in my everyday shoes (although I’m not sure what I’m going to do […]

Perfect People are Boring

Pin It!

Did anyone else read the book How to be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days in elementary school?  The gist: a young boy reads a self-help book on “how to be perfect” and comes to realize, by the end, that perfect people are boring because all they do is sit around and drink weak […]

Of Puppies and Pancakes (preferably not together)

Pin It!

Did you know that yesterday was Fat Tuesday? I celebrated with a sweet batch of Carrot Cake Pancakes. On what might just be the world’s cutest plate ever: it’s a turtle (purchased at the amazing Pearl River Mart). And what did I spread on top of the pancakes? Look up the word “obsession” in the […]
