I'm keeping the summer theme alive and celebrating all things strawberry today! These jewels are in PEAK season right now and so damn good. Sometimes I can get a little over zealous at the farmer's market and buy a tad too many after I've had a few samples. I have get serious FOMO when I think of the fall and winter when they aren't nearly as good and so I buy a bunch and hoard them.Read More

You guys- ZOODLES! As in, zucchini noodleeeeees. I finally jumped on the band wagon and tried them not too long ago. My verdict...totally not a substitute for pasta, but very delicious, seasonable, and easy. I feel like zoodles are a little the spaghetti squash of the summer. A nice little something to add veg to your dish. Or a substitute if you need low carb. Who needs that though...am I right?Read More

Free cherries you say? Um, yes please! That's right, I was lucky enough to get loaded up with nearly 10lbs of cherries a few weeks ago. Thanks to my not so shy husband at least. We were at a BBQ and our host's roommate came in with a big ol' box of these rainier cherries from his grandparent's orchard. We all chowed down on them during the gathering, but as we were leaving, I whispered to the hubs..."think I can take some of those home?" He smoothly yelled to the host about my request. Then all of a sudden the host grabbed a box and loaded me up. As this was happening I started doing the happy dance in my head - YIPEE!Read More
I cannot take credit for this one. I'm a little jeal that I can't because DUH, this is like my favorite coffee treat ever! WHY DIDN'T THINK OF THIS SOONER! I got inspired and slapped my forehead at the same time when i am a food blog's gorgeous photo popped up on my insta feed. But, nope, I have just been driving to Berkeley for my little treat days and spending $4, which I am fine with, but this way is just so much easier.Read More
