I’m SO thrilled to share with you the first of many posts about our Chicago condo aka our #ambitioushome. While we aren’t quite as settled in as I would’ve hoped (because hello, life), we’ve taken our time decorating to ensure that we really love everything we purchase.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing our master bedroom tour so be sure to come back for the full reveal. In the meantime, I wanted to tell you about the best bed I’ve ever slept on (my own bed). Seriously, it has been life changing.

Grain Free Almond Flour Chocolate Sugar Cookies — this easy one bowl cookie recipe can be made into cut out shapes or rolled into dough balls! Top with a silky velvet chocolate frosting if you’d like.

Tony and I snuggled in last night to watch the big game and munched on pepper jack cheese cubes, these paleo chocolate sugar cookies and some amazing sprouted grain tortilla chips. It was a hectic weekend for us, and all we wanted to do was relax at home with endless snack options and an amazing Lady Gaga halftime show. (Seriously, it was SOOOO good!)

Before we talk all about these sweetheart cookies with fabulous silky velvet buttercream, I must tell you about a little incident that occurred over the weekend.

Hey friends! This week has flown by like crazy, no? I can’t complain because I feel like Spring is only a month or two away. I’m eagerly waiting for the warmth to return so I can take out my bike and the trails — there’s something rejuvenating about the wind against you and rays of sunshine beating warm on your sweat-kissed skin.

Banana bread pancakes that are perfectly sweet, fluffy and nutritious. Made with whole wheat flour and dairy free too!

Safe to say, I’m learning everything there is about being a first-time homeowner. Including when your oven breaks and you have to call the repair man to fix it. Who knew home repairs could be so ridiculously expensive?

Now that the oven is finally working again, I can get back to meal prep from the Healthy Glow Co. — that means these banana bread pancakes are on the menu this week.

Low carb chicken zucchini enchilada bake with layers upon layers of creamy, flavorful goodness: Refried beans, cheese, chicken, zucchini and a homemade enchilada sauce!

Zucchini party should be a legit thing that people have. You get together with all your friends who have a zucchini surplus, make various zucchini recipes and walk aways with different delicious meals.

Only suggesting this because readers are often emailing me asking what to do with their zucchini. I’m not sure if you guys are buying it in bulk or what, but there’s my suggestion for you: an epic #zucchiniparty.

Healthy chicken pot pie — made with  a comforting homemade whole grain flaky crust and an amazing sauce made with almond milk & chicken broth instead of butter and cream!

When you’re going all the time, sometimes it’s hard to catch your breath and take in the beautiful things surrounding you. And my oh my, there are so many wonderful things to appreciate. People, different cultures, talents, successes (others and my own), the changing seasons, a comfortable bed to sleep in, the unconditional love I feel for my fiancé.

The world is changing. Right before our eyes. And at an epic speed that sometimes feels out of control and helpless. Read more.

Last Saturday (1/21/17) was a day that I’ll never forget. Most of you already know that Tony proposed (and that I said yes!) but I wanted to write out not only our engagement story, but our love story right here, so that I could keep it forever.

Hi guys! How are you on this glorious Friday? I’m so excited to be officially back with my weekend favorites. As you’ve probably realized, it’s been a completely insane past few months so I had to stop doing them for a while, but I’m happy that I’m trying to get back into a regular blogging routine. It’s always fun to save my favorite posts and share them with you on Fridays.

Actually my hope is to do a completely photobomb of my life lately on the blog soon. But for now this purple sweet potato will have to do. You can catch how I made it on my Instagram.
