Pinterest To Plate: No Bake Energy Bites on

Gosh. It feels amazing to actually sit down and write.  I apologize for my absence, I’ve missed you all so much!  Work has been insane on top of preparing for a third move.  The first move involved roaches, which lead to a second move in under 24 hours.  And we have finally found our perfect place.  On top of that craziness, there’s been 30th birthdays and other events.  So you can imagine, the last thing I wanted to do was pick up my laptop.  But I’m finally back and super excited for what’s to come in all areas of my life right now, and even more excited to decorate our new fancy place and document it all right here. read more

Pinterest to Plate: My Journey to Loving Guacamole

August 7, 2015


Don’t gasp, but I fell in love with guacamole this year.  Yes, 2015. I know, I know.  Whatever you are going to say, I’ve already heard it.  I was just never into the taste. It was always something so off about the taste to me. And I would try it time and time again at various restaurants trying to find the guacamole that would change my mind. But to no avail.  Le sigh.  Then one day, the spark awakened in me as I dipped my chip into the guacamole at Gracias Madre. Eureka! I instantly fell in love. read more
