Banana Chocolate Pops

Lets talk about opposites. Hard and easy. Quick and slow. Short and long. These opposites all perfectly contrast the two activities of my weekend. The first task, testing out a new recipe for Banana Chocolate Pops, no big deal. The second task, finally painting my master bathroom, backbreaking. So let’s start with the hard stuff first. I’ve

As I write this post, Memorial Day weekend is in full swing! I’m spending a much anticipated long weekend at my mother and father in laws house- they have a great place in a somewhat country area outside of Orlando (believe it or not, it’s not all Mickey Mouse and theme parks here!). I’ve spent

Food blogging is hard while pregnant. It’s like everything and anything I’ve ever loved I now can’t even stand the thought of. Zucchini for instance (Kate knows all about this love of mine) used to be my go-to for our Sunday night grill-outs, and now I walk by it at the market like it doesn’t even

Hi everyone! Back to work tomorrow after a fun 3 day weekend! It’s a funny thing to say, but one of my favorite things about days off work is that I don’t have to pack any breakfast, lunch or snacks. It’s so hard to decide what to pack the night before, and it’s so easy

Pumpkin Pancakes

I write this with an unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean, sitting in the kitchen of a beautiful house on the beach in New Smyrna. Fall doesn’t have much meaning here in Florida, though it’s not as torturously hot as it was a month ago. For that (and this view), I am thankful. Here in

Maple Cinnamon Plantains

Let’s talk a little about obsessions. Food obsessions to be specific. I have an obsession with maple syrup. Not to be confused with my obsession with curry. Or my obsession with avocados, shrimp or dark chocolate. Ok, so maybe I just have an obsession with food. I mean, that’s not completely a bad thing, right? Now,
