Winter Farro Salad with Blood Orange Vinaigrette

This winter farro salad can turn any drab winter day to a bright one! The farro salad is full of vibrant colors and ingredients and topped off with a sweet and tangy blood orange vinaigrette that finishes the salad perfectly!

I turn 30 at the end of this month and I think my brain is catapulting itself into thinking it’s 80 because I’m sitting here sipping on orange juice and listening to classical music streaming through my new Sonos speakers that Jason got me for Christmas. Seriously, who am I?! There is nothing wrong with drinking orange juice or listening to classical music. It’s just that I would never have thought in a bajillion years I would be doing that. Ever! Part of…

Pineapple Fried Rice

Take-out or take-in? You won't be able to tell that this pineapple fried rice was homemade and just as delicious as calling your neighborhood Thai takeout place! Much healthier to make this pineapple fried rice at home and it's super easy!

Make tonight’s meal a “take-in” by making this pineapple fried rice! If you aren’t into pineapple fried rice, I’ve got a chicken version that will satisfy any take-out cravings! I probably won’t be the first to say this but I’m so so SO happy that 2016 is over. Looking back on 2016, I’m wondering if it could be any worse. 2016 literally was the worst year that I can ever remember and I probably won’t forget it anytime soon, either. We started 2016…

Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli

Slow cooker beef and broccoli is easy to make at home and such a warm comforting meal to have in a big bowl of rice! Much better than calling take-out; simply whip out your slow cooker and make this beef and broccoli at home!

Note: This post first appeared on September 12, 2012. The recipe has been edited slightly (to make the recipe easier to understand if you were having issues before) and the photography got a facelift! Enjoy! Time to break out the slow cookers :) one of the best parts of the cooler weather is being able to breakout the slow cooker to make delicious soups, stews, and cozy dinner meals such as this one!

Eggnog Cheesecake Bites with Gingersnap Crust

These adorable eggnog cheesecake bites with gingersnap crust are the perfect little addition to your holiday table! These little bites will be gone before you know it!

You guys. I need some sweet relief. I have the worst neck and shoulder pain. I’m my chiro’s stiffest client and it’s progressively getting worse. I know the computer time doesn’t help but hey – I’m a web developer. I can’t change that. I can change my posture and I’m constantly working on it. I’m getting a standing desk at home and at work. I’m trying y’all! But, my chiro said a large part of my problem is attributed to…

Spicy Gingerbread Lattes

Warm and cozy spicy gingerbread lattes are the only way to beat the cold! These extra spicy gingerbread lattes are the best holiday homemade drink!

It was sooo cold this past week. It felt like -6 degrees on Thursday and Friday. Bitter cold and even fleece-lined leggings weren’t cutting it. Speaking of fleece-lined leggings, the ones I purchased from Nordstrom last year aren’t being offered again this year (why?! they sold out super fast last year so I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t bring it back again) so I had to do some research. I had people telling me that VS ones were awesome but…

This is a post sponsored by Princess Cruises. All opinions are 100% my own. Okay guys, here we are in Cabo San Lucas; in which my previous posts I mentioned that the #1 reason I said yes to going on this Mexican Riviera cruise with Princess Cruises was because Cabo San Lucas was a stop along the trip. I have been dying to go to Cabo San Lucas ever since high school when Laguna Beach and The Hills would go…
