“Strawberry Chia Seed Jam”

Summer is coming to a close, but Fall is not quite here yet. It’s the awkward in-between stage of wondering when it’s socially acceptable to bring the fall decor down from the attic.

“Almond & Sweet Potato Crusted Salmon”

  For our honeymoon, my husband and I vacationed in Florida, traveling from West Palm Beach all the way down to Key West. I think what I remember most was the unbelievable views that took my breath away, the way the sun would set the water on fire with it’s blazing rays. We often bring up…
