Gluten-Free Banoffee Pie & Life

August 21, 2019

Here’s a fun new update I never thought I’d be writing – I’m dating an Irishman. Turns out I’m a sucker for an accent, but aren’t we all?

My boyfriend grew up on a sheep farm in the west of Ireland (yeah he’s authentic) and one day I asked him what his favorite memory from home was.

“Sitting at the kitchen table reading, my mom is probably baking something. There might be a lamb or two by the fire.” He said.

“As in the meat?” I asked, wondering if he had a hankering for a Gyro or kabab.

“As in the baby sheep.” He corrected me.

“Right. Naturally. Baby sheep in the kitchen warming themselves by the fire. Typical. (?!) Well, what does your mom make that you like so much?”

And with warm eyes and a soft smile he said “Banoffee pie.”

How I Curb My Cravings

August 29, 2018


Don’t get me wrong, I am a firm believer in the concepts of “treat yo self” “rosé all day” and YOLO, but I also believe in the 80/20 rule, so during the week I like to shift my focus to healthy alternatives that taste just as good as the treat I’m craving. I figured I can’t be alone in this feeling, so without further adieu, here are my top five tasty alternatives that curb my cravings, while keeping me on track: Continue Reading

So when my dear friend Paige invited my girlfriends and me up to her lake house for the weekend, I was packed before she could even send over the address.  Continue Reading

Mexican Quinoa Breakfast Bowls

May 21, 2018


I love throwing a bunch of things into a bowl, topping them with a fried egg and calling it breakfast. Recently- I was in Phoenix for a much overdue vacation, and while I was there I had some damn tasty Mexican food. So, when I got back and did my weekly grocery shop, I was inspired to plan a week’s worth of Mexican inspired brekkie.  Continue Reading

On-The-Go Breakfast Sandwiches… For Beginners

April 18, 2018


Yes the title of this post is supposed to make you laugh, and yes, believe it or not this has been one of my most requested posts since I started blogging. That and a meal plan, but first things first! Let’s start with the most important meal of the day, shall we? Breakfast- it can make or break your morning, and I’m not talking about leaving you hungry. I can’t tell you how many times rushing to get out the door has caused me to burn my eggs, crack eggs on the floor, and say “screw it” to eggs and grab a granola bar or even worse… nothing at all. Then there are those other mornings that #workfromhomelife reminds me that I can indeed whip up something delicious and nutritious in a matter of minutes- it just requires a little patience and a little rhythm, something I tend to lack early in the a.m., or when I’m running late.

So friends- the solution? Prep. Yeah I said it, and no you’re not going to want to do this Sunday afternoon, but will you thank me, and the gods, when you’re munching on a warm bacon and egg breakfast sammy on your way to work Wednesday morning? You betcha. Alright, let’s do thissss- Continue Reading
