by Chrissy

Recently, I have been finding myself scouring the kitchen for a little snack that didn’t involve ice cream. I found some all-too-ripe-bananas, so naturally, banana bread was calling. Coincidentally, my man had been asking for some of that homemade goodness for over a few weeks now, but it was just too darn hot to bring myself to turn the oven on to bake bread.

Pumpkin Pie Roasted Almonds

by Chrissy

I have a new addiction. It happens to be to these Pumpkin Pie Roasted Almonds.

I…I….I…..just don’t know what to say. They are perfectly crunchy, pleasantly pumpkin-spiced, and they have a great balance between salty and sweet.

by Chrissy

So if you are anywhere else in the world, you might not think that this cold smoothie would be a great breakfast option, but if you are still getting drenched in sweat when you take a walk outside, then this is just the thing to cool you down. Apparently, Southern California isn’t ready to kiss summer goodbye, just yet. I’m OK with this because TJ’s decided to bring in another shipment of their glorious flats of peaches, so we … Read more...
