Honey Harvest Granola

As I’m clumsily wandering through the first month of the new year and my first month as a healthier new me, finding healthy recipes that actually taste good are of top priority! This new conquest has me returning to some old recipes I consistently cooked with when I worked at Red Mountain Spa in St. George, UT. Those were the days and I miss them from time to time. It

Currently Loving // Curing the Winter Blues

  “Winter is a season of recovery and preparation.” Paul Theroux   It happens every year. The moment the beauty, excitement and wondrous feelings of the holidays come to a close, winter smacks you straight in the face! It’s not the magical “dreaming of a white Christmas” type of winter, where the first snowfall of the season is the best thing to ever happen. Where everyone is happy, bright and ready

A New Year, A Healthier New Me

2018 has arrived and with it a fresh slate; the perfect chance to do things a bit different. It feels rather cliche to declare that these are my New Year’s resolutions. Let’s be perfectly honest, I am not great about keeping specific, goal-driven, rigid resolutions. For me, resolutions are the impossible bar I set for myself, which I most often fail to meet, ultimately leaving me with feelings of defeat,

A dazzling + festive Crimson Sparkler Cocktail

Happy Holidays!!! We are less than a week away from the big day, or if you’re like my family, the big week. I currently have 4 different family celebrations to enjoy, help cook for, and eat way too much food at! Next week will be filled with a lot of traveling, but I’m excited to spend time with my family. What also has me excited is the excuse to drink festive

Simple + Thrifted Holiday Gathering

My goal this year for our holiday table was to stay as simple and affordable as possible. Let’s be honest, it’s not hard to spend a crazy amount of money on all of the stunning holiday decor out there! I could easily go broke at Crate & Barrel alone, simply because I want everything, and my holiday table would look AMAZING!!! However, I don’t have deep pockets and even if

Roasted Winter Squash Salad with Sage-Honey Vinaigrette

I remember growing up and getting so excited when my mom decided to make us all roasted squash for dinner. Her version usually included a lot of butter, a simple halved squash, and honey drizzled all over it… oh and some cinnamon. Cinnamon was always the cherry on the top. It would roast in the oven for what seems like an eternity until the honey and butter had caramelized and

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Thyme & Goat Cheese

It’s actually been a relatively mild week here in Minneapolis, as we gear up for Thanksgiving celebrations this week. When I say mild, I refer to the weather… it’s pretty usual that most Minnesotans often refer to the weather in any or every conversation. I’m not quite sure why, but we seem to have a habit of it. Maybe it’s because the weather is so dang confusing and all over the

Our California Weekend Getaway

We’ve just returned home from a long weekend getaway in California and I’m already dreaming of when we can go back. There’s never enough time to explore everything that California has to offer. On top of that, a long weekend never allows enough time to see all of our friends and coworkers. I did get some time with my family, but that too is never long enough! And we also
