Healthy Baked Oatmeal with banana, strawberries and chocolate chips — great for serving during the holidays or to meal prep for breakfast throughout the week. Simply reheat and enjoy! Recipe made in partnership with Almond Breeze almondmilk.

Happy holidays friends! Currently I’m on my honeymoon in one of my favorite places on earth: Australia! We left on the 16th and arrive on the morning of the 18th in Sydney. LONGEST FLIGHT EVER but worth it.

Our travel plans consist of Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Daintree rainforest, wineries, Byron Bay and a few other stops along the way — we certainly have an amazing two week itinerary here before we leave for Hawaii for another week. We’re thrilled to be able to spend this time together as newlyweds and I can’t wait to share all of the details with you. And of course, all of our wedding photos!

What a whirlwind of a week! We had an 8-hour shoot yesterday creating some awesome new recipe videos to share, and we planned out our recipe calendar through February. I’m feeling incredibly excited about all the new recipes I have planned for you all in 2018.

But for now…it’s Thursday, and I’m leaving the country in two days (OMG!).

Gluten free paleo orange bread kissed and infused with fresh orange juice & zest, then covered with dark chocolate for the ultimate treat. This bread will blow you away by how good it is.

It might be my wedding week, but don’t think I forgot about all of you. My passion and joy in life involves making recipes and I couldn’t neglect you during the holiday season.

I’m going to keep all posts this week pretty short and sweet, which means we can avoid talking about my obsession with Jelena (justin + selena getting back together) and get straight to these delicious recipes.

Round Up Sunday is here! I hope you guys have had an amazing weekend, and that these round-ups start your Sunday’s off right. With the first snow in Chicago + an extremely busy week over here, I’ve been cozying up with hot coffee (lots), a great playlist, and of course, the final wedding details before the big day. The best cure for a wintery day and a busy mind? Breakfast. All. Day. Long. Specifically? Fluffy stacks of pancakes and waffles that fill your house with warm goodness. That’s why this Sunday I rounded up 22 cozy pancake & waffle recipes that are perfect for snuggling up and staying in.

This veggie packed turkey bacon quiche is a protein packed breakfast that’s GREAT for meal prep! Make it and then enjoy slices all week long with hot sauce & avocado on the side.

As you may or may not know, I had the BEST weekend ever with all of my bridesmaids for my bachelorette party in Scottsdale, AZ. It was such a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend full of amazing conversations, girl time, hiking, tacos, margaritas, guac + all the chips. I swear to you, my belly needs a break from tequila for a while.

Just keepin’ it real.

Freezer friendly healthy pumpkin waffles with cozy spices + a touch of maple syrup. These fluffy waffles will be your go-to fall breakfast. 

How the heck are you? Was your weekend filled with relaxation and good food? Yesterday I made a big bowl of vegetarian soup filled with chickpeas and spices. It was luxuriously cozy and felt like everything I needed on a Sunday night coupled with catching up on the latest episode of This is Us & watching one of my favorite Halloween movies: Hocus Pocus.

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins made a little bit healthier. You’ll love these satisfying muffins for a snack — freezer friendly and great for kids

Hello hello! Coming to you with a recipe for pumpkin muffins + weekend favorites and a few wedding updates in between.

I just got back in Chicago after picking up my beautiful wedding dress at A&Be bridal in chilly Minneapolis. Every time I’m in Minnesota, I’m reminded of home, where I grew up near the lakes, and the niceness of the people. Oddly this time, I felt myself missing the beautiful trees and admiring the cozy neighborhoods lined with green grass. It’s always a good feeling to be home every now and then.

Fall-inspired vegan pumpkin oatmeal scones with hints of maple, pecan and pumpkin spice in every bite! Made with hearty Coach’s Oats for a wholesome, filling snack to pair with your cup of coffee.

Many apologies over here because I haven’t made you a scone recipe since 2014. Another apology is due to the fact that we’re already mid-way through September and this just happens to be my first pumpkin recipe of the season. SAYYYY WHAAAA?

Usually I start posting pumpkin recipes in late August or early September, but over the past few years pumpkin craze has been a little insane in the grocery store so I decided to hold off. Sorry, but I do not want pumpkin pringles, pumpkin frosting, pumpkin coffee creamer or pumpkin spice infused hair products.

Healthy chai banana bread that will have your house smelling cozy and delicious. Topped with a simple cashew butter vanilla glaze! 

Life has gotten incredibly busy lately, so I must apologize for being few and far between when it comes to posting on the blog. The wedding is about two months away and we’ve still got SO much to do (ummm I haven’t gotten Tony’s ring yet). Also it doesn’t help that all I want to do is BAKE and cook all the cozy wonderful things like soup, pumpkin bread, apple butter and cookies. Food distracts me.

HELP.
