Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies

The minute I heard about hazelnut flour, I knew exactly what I was going to make! It's predictable and not at all unexpected, but chocolate chip cookies have just been begging for this Nutella like upgrade. And... since chocolate and sea salt is absolutely unbeatable, I sprinkled the cookie tops with a little salty goodness as well. It only took ...

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

'We began with the best of intentions.' I've seen this sentence used several times in literature, and it always gets me - don't we all begin with the best of intentions only to discover the process is much more than we thought? So often a good idea fails to reach the level of reality because the original intention was flawed ...

Grand Prismatic Geyser in Yellowstone

Grand Prismatic Geyser is perhaps the most well known geyser in Yellowstone, (besides Old Faithful I suppose)! And... why wouldn't it be, the colors are so unreal you feel like you may just be on another planet! We went midday and the light was very harsh, so I'd recommend morning or early evening for the best photography opportunity. Whenever you ...

Chipotle Rubbed Shrimp Tacos

One of my friends messaged me a few weeks back asking if I happened to have a recipe for shrimp tacos. I make fish tacos at home all the time, but up until now I've never made shrimp tacos at home. Maybe it's because I almost always eat seafood tacos when I'm out that I've never put together a recipe ...

Grapefruit Ginger Body Wash

Do you ever look at the label on the back of your bathroom products? I feel like my strategy has been mostly along the lines of 'if is says natural or organic, I'm probably alright'! I mean... when it says 99.3% natural - how bad can it be? The answer to that question will likely go unanswered in our lifetime, ...

Acai Berry Bliss Bowls

I'm so hooked on smoothie bowls that we have every kind of color/flavor variation for breakfast several times a week. In the past I've always been more of a baked goods kind of person in the morning, preferring to save the heavier bacon and eggs for brunch time, but these smoothie bowls fill all the morning requirements I could possibly ...

Caramelized Coconut Chips

I've never been much of a snacker until recently. Even when I was a kid and had a voracious appetite I never really snacked, instead I ate meals in between my meals, (seriously I don't know how my parents were able to afford groceries for me)! These days with my appetite down to a tiny fraction of what it used ...

How To Make Paneer Cheese

I feel a little weird telling you how to make homemade cheese today when usually we talk about how to get dinner on the table as fast as possible! Maybe it would help if I started by telling you that paneer cheese is the easiest homemade cheese I've ever made, and there are certain foods I make an exception for ...
