My Last Bump Update

A few weeks ago, one of my wildly talented photographer friends and I caught up on life around some homemade pie. There is something comforting about a warm slice of pie and talking with a friend you haven’t seen in over a year. When the pie begins to melt in your mouth and the conversation…

Peach Pie Overnight Oats

Mornings. What can be said about week-day mornings at your house? It’s back to school season and I know it’s left many of you with mornings of chaos. Maybe the adjectives that come to mind include hectic, stressful, rushed, tired, or hungry. I know this is the reality for so many of us, having a…

Our Baby Nursery Reveal

Ever since we have moved into our treehouse back in May, I had a vision for Emery’s nursery. I’m a simple girl who loves and appreciates the simplicity of white, so naturally when designing her room I wanted to incorporate plenty of white with pops of color here and there. I’ve never been a huge…

Double Layer Enchiladas

Throughout my pregnancy I have been craving plenty of Mexican food, especially rice, black beans, salsa, and chunky guacamole. Although I didn’t try to make too many Mexican food dishes during my first trimester, the thought of cooking alone made me squeamish and uncomfortable.

Blueberry Goat Cheese Morning Biscuits

What’s The Hype About Probiotics?

Probiotics—a recent topic of interest among many people today. It seems to be another health buzz word around campus—taking probiotics via supplementation and food items. But what’s the hype about probiotics, and why are they just now coming into focus? They have been around for centuries, all throughout different cultures, in and around different parts…

Protein Fiesta Bowl

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, which, in my language means all the best foods make a grand reappearance onto the plate. Mexican cuisine has so much to offer in the taste profile. Even in the nutrition profile most of the meals are busting with fresh produce, protein, fats and enough herbs to…
