• The “Perfect” Smoothie

    What a title. Sid that not grab your attention? Pretty great right. Well, spoiler alert, the perfect smoothie has so much to do with one’s own personal tastes and preferences. Besides one of my favorite smoothie recipes, this post will give you all of the tools to make the best smoothies. This smoothie recipe is a winner. It was so delish that I am going to call it my “perfect” smoothie. I’m not even sure that you are ready for how tasty it is OR how easy it is OR how healthy it is. And the whole thing is only 6 or 7 ingredients that are easy to keep on…

  • An Ode To Asparagus

    As sunny days grow in number, this vegetable is a warrior. Commonly found within confines of blue bands, asparagus is the Paul Revere of fertile lands. Yeah, the poem was a bit much, but I love it. I should’ve wrote a post about one of my favorite vegetables earlier in its season, but que sera, sera. Asparagus is such a blessing when it is in season. Not only is it more readily available at farmers markets, farm stands, and the weekly savings mailer at grocery stores, but it is an incredibly versatile and delicious veggie. I have been heartily enjoying these veggies since March and wanted to share a few applications and learnings before…

  • Easy Egg Salad

    When I was back with my parents a few weeks ago for Easter, we ran into the predicament that most people run into during this egg-centric holiday: “So many hard-boiled eggs, so little time” (I might have that stitched on a pillow). My dad brought up the idea of making egg salad out of the eggs, and we went for it. You may not believe it, but that was my first time making egg salad. We made it, and it was quite delish. However, when you are an aspiring food blogger, you have to have pictures, measurements and lots of pizazz, none of which I gathered from this particular egg salad…

  • First Experiences with the Pink Latte Everyone is Talking About

    From my own personal experiences reading food blogs on a near daily basis, this headline was a little blown out of proportion. However, I was enamored by the enthusiasm from the one the only Dr. Oz regarding this new super-latte, as he compared it to the bulletproof coffee trend. Picture this: Maryland, 2017. (Can you tell I’ve been watching a lot of Golden Girls over the past few months…) I was at my parent’s house for an Easter celebration last week, and I happen to catch an episode of Dr. Oz right after LIVE with Kelly. Dr. Oz was getting all jazzed about the latest trend in hot, health-boosting coffee-inspired trends. You may have a…

  • UNICORN FRAPPUCCINO REVIEW

    Wow folks. I’m back after a bit of a hiatus due to a huge newsworthy event happening at everyone’s favorite neighborhood (read: corporate giant) coffee shop, Starbucks. From April 19 (the past) to April 23 (the future), stores will be dishing out the new Unicorn Frappuccino. And, if you were wondering how a drink can be named after a mythical creature, with enough sparkly pink sugar dust, sour blue sauce, and cream, anything is possible. It has been taking the Instagram world by storm, just search the hashtag #unicornfrappuccino and you are bound to be wowed by the beautiful colorful pictures. I had to try it for myself, and boy was…
