Recipe // Cherry BBQ Chicken Thighs

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Cherry season! Especially here in Michigan. Traverse City is one of the biggest producers of cherries in these parts, so we don't have to go very far to find the best ones. In fact, they are so enthusiastic about cherries that they have an entire festival dedicated … Continue reading Recipe // Cherry BBQ Chicken Thighs


Recipe // Pecan Milk PLUS (mostly) Raw Carrot Cheesecake Bars

I'm really excited about this one guys. First and foremost, I would like to introduce you to my newest partnership with Ellie's Best nut milk bags. I'm also really excited to see how many times I can say "nut milk bag" in this post. I love it.

A “Grill Out” Meal for Apartment Dwellers

I guess I should call it a "grill in" huh? My biggest regret is not renting a house on the East Side when we first moved to Lansing.

I've been … Continue reading Recipe // Chocolate Coconut Paleo “Granola”

Recipe // Skillet Eggs in a Nest

Is there something you've wanted for years that you've just never actually felt like shoveling out the money for so you just go on with your life sad and dejected? That's how I feel about a really solid veggie spiralizer. I have a handheld one but it's pretty much only good for zucchini and carrots. … Continue reading Recipe // Skillet Eggs in a Nest

Recipe // Cashew Butter + Chia Seed Jam Cups

It's pretty rare that I go for this kind of recipe. Baking is for sure not my thing, and even when it's not really "baking" (meaning you just mix it up and put it in the freezer) I just have a hard time getting everything just right. And I can't deal with wasting ingredients on … Continue reading Recipe // Cashew Butter + Chia Seed Jam Cups
