Back-to-School for MOMS + Sparkling Peach Green Tea

As much as I've absolutely loved summer and all the fun we've gotten to have (swimming, popsicles on the patio, glamping, vacation), I'm also craving a little bit more routine that the school year inevitably brings. We all know going back-to-school is a big deal for our kiddos, but what about us moms?

Them: School supplies, clothes, homework, making new friends, etc... ... Read more » about Back-to-School for MOMS + Sparkling Peach Green Tea

Roasted Cherry Sangria + 8 Other Delicious Cherry Recipes!

Cherries. 

Sweet glorious cherries. The epitome of summer.

Someday I'll invest in an actual cherry pitter -- but for now, I slice and remove the pits by hand with a small paring knife. Something about it is actually quite calming and relaxing. And the best part is... knowing what's at the end -- a beautiful bowl of deliciousness ready to be devoured as-is or thrown into banana bread, or a smoothie, or a salad, or cupcakes, or a lovely summer sangria. ...

Blood Orange, Carrot, & Ginger Juice

One of the few reasons to love winter: blood oranges are in season. 

Seriously, I love this fruit!

I love the variation of colors (especially the deep red), I love that they're a little sweeter and less acidic, AND I love all that immunity-boosting vitamin C (up to 40% more than a regular navel orange!) -- just what our bodies need in the middle of winter! It's like it was planned or something. ... Read more » about Blood Orange, Carrot, & Ginger Juice

Sangria w/a Twist: {Blueberry Citrus Bourbon Sangria}

Generally sangria is made with wine (red or white), vodka, and fruit. You can add a few things here and there to make it unique, but that is the general make-up. Well, I don't like following the "rules." So, last time I used sparkling white wine to make Strawberry Watermelon Sparkling Sangria. And this time, I subbed out the vodka and subbed in honey bourbon. ... Read more » about Sangria w/a Twist: {Blueberry Citrus Bourbon Sangria}

Simple {Strawberry Watermelon Sparkling Sangria}

I don't know if it's from turning 30 (a few years ago, lol), or having a baby, or trying to juggle being an accountant, food blogger, and mom, but one thing is for sure... I don't have a great short-term memory anymore. Whether it's talking about stopping to get the mail at the top of the driveway and forgetting by the time I'm speeding past the mailbox, or making a batch of hummingbird juice and cooling it quickly in the freezer only to forget it completely and have it turn into a solid block of ice, or having a list of 6 things ...

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. ...

Juicing Through the Rainbow: {Super Green Juice}

Way back when (almost a year ago to the day, to be exact) I decided that I needed to create more balance in my life and I did that by cutting back my blogging schedule to once a week. I didn't exactly "cut back" though, since I dove right into writing an e-cookbook that summer followed by a real-honest-to-goodness-printed cookbook immediately thereafter...but that's a whole other story. Anyways, now that the book has been turned into the publisher (YAY!!!!) I have been doing a lot more juicing and want to share those fabulous juices with you while still keeping a good mix ...
