Gym Update + {Almond Mocha Green Smoothies}

It's been a week since I joined a gym, the first step towards my summer goal. I went every single day, which is more than I'll normally go...but I wanted to get in the habit of being there and I wanted to take a couple different classes to see what was most challenging and motivating. ...

Healthy Mother's Day Brunch + {BLT Crustless Quiche}

I have to say, as hard as the days can be sometimes, mothering this little adventurous, strong-willed, creative child... I really am loving these moments lately. Babycakes' love for me overflows out of her mouth almost incessantly. She says I'm the greastest and most beautiful mommy ever. ...

12 Muffin Recipes Mom will LOVE -- on Mother's Day

Yay Water + {Brownie Batter Zucchini Muffins}

I already declared my love for Silk almondmilk in this post, but now I have even one more reason to love it! I recently learned that switching to Silk once a week (instead of regular cow milk) will save over 26,000 gallons of water in a year!! Say what?!?!? I had no idea. Here's the deal. It's easier and takes less water to produce a gallon of almondmilk than to feed/nurture the cow and associated pasture and barn ... Read more » about Yay Water + {Brownie Batter Zucchini Muffins}

Silk Almondmilk + {Vegan Banana Nut Muffins}

You may (or may not) have noticed that a LOT of my recipes use almondmilk. When Babycakes was born I made the conscious decision that after a year of breast-feeding, her primary "milk" would be almondmilk, not cows' milk. I also never gave her rice cereal, but that's a whole different story!

Feeling Lovely + {Chocolate Covered Strawberries Bread}

I think I'm going to get a little deep today.  The truth is, I don't feel particularly lovely lately...which makes it hard to accept love and kindness and compliments from others. In one ear, a big smirk, then out the other.  I've been all shapes and sizes along the way, and yet I struggle at all of them to truly love myself and my body. In those moments of struggle, I try to focus on the positive and think of 3 or 4 things I truly love about myself at that moment. Here goes: ...

The Vegan Debate + {Cranberry Banana Bread}

It wasn't a philosophical debate about whether to be vegan. No, I had an internal debate over the word "vegan" this weekend. Put it in the blog post title, or no????? Call the recipe "vegan"? I know that some of you may see the word vegan + baking and go running the other way. Please don't!! Just because there's no eggs and no dairy doesn't mean it's weird or doesn't taste good. Actually it's quite the opposite. ... Read more » about The Vegan Debate + {Cranberry Banana Bread}
