Incredibly cozy, healthy vegan Mexican hot chocolate that’s perfectly sweet with a hint of spice — made with a blend of almond and coconut milk. This recipe is in partnership with McCormick Spices.

Forget the whiskey, hot chocolate has always been the best kind of night cap.

Like many of you, I’ve adored a cozy cup of hot chocolate ever since I was a little. And I should share that I’m more of a whipped cream girl rather than a marshmallow lover. How about you?

It has been what seems like forever since I shared my most recent grocery finds with you. I know you all love them, so I’m making an effort to share more of the things I love to get in hopes to inspire you to try something new!

A few weeks ago Abra and I headed down to our local Fresh Thyme Farmers Market to see what all of buzz was about.

For all you Chicagoans: there’s a Fresh Thyme right in Bucktown with a MASSIVE parking lot – so easy! We walked in and were instantly blow away by how many amazing options there were. In fact there was a lot of buy one, get one free sales so we went a little crazy.

This Healthy Flourless Monster Cookie recipe is wholesome take on a childhood classic! Packed with peanut butter flavor, chocolate chips, coconut, chocolate candy pieces and nuts.

One of the first jobs I had in high school was working at a daycare. I was one of the leads in the afternoon preschool room, but eventually started working with toddlers and babies. It was an AMAZING learning experience for the future and I loved every minute of it. After high school I took up a few nanny jobs, which allowed me to essentially become apart of a new family.

Bright and flavorful roasted veggie mediterranean pasta with goat cheese is the perfect vegetarian meal! It’s packed with fresh veggies, tossed in a delicious cashew pesto sauce and perfect served warm or cold.

I’m not going to lie, I deeply procrastinated on writing this post, not because I wasn’t excited to talk about this pasta (trust me it’s gooooood) but because I came down with the MOST OUTRAGEOUS cold on the planet. It went from worse to can’t breathe kind of cold and lasted for a straight week.
