Mango-Macadamia Granola Bars

Mango-Macadamia Granola Bars

So it’s no secret that since I’ve started eating “healthy” – or whatever – I’ve become a breakfast eater. My breakfast game was at its all time peak during my couple of months of unemployment late last year when I got to make breakfast at home every morning. Toast, eggs, cheese and salsa, yessssss #allthethings … Continue reading

Lemon Shortbread Cookies

Lemon Shortbread Cookies

I must admit, even though I’m a “food blogger” and a self-proclaimed foodie, I don’t think I really have a signature go-to dish.

Braided Lemon Bread

Braided Lemon Bread

Springtime. Seems like most people associate Easter with Spring, and the fact that Easter came early this year means…so did Spring? Aside from an epic thunderstorm on Saturday night/Sunday morning, I’d say it’s been pretty springlike here in Northern California! You know what else I associate with Spring? LEMON! I love lemon everything. Lemony marinades … Continue reading

Christmas Cookie Brainstorming Sesh

In addition to a seemingly never ending supply of cookies in our Christmas cookie tins, my mom always made loaves of cranberry bread for our teachers, and cookies for our neighbors. … Continue reading
