Ants on an Apple

Thanks to California Raisins, I realized that raisins make a great snack that even I will eat! By adding raisins to apples and peanut butter you get a healthy afternoon snack that all ages will love. Okay, so I’m the first to admit that raisins and I have never been BFFs. As a kid almost...

Lighten Up is open today!

It’s September 1st. Tomorrow is the big day, and I am feeling bittersweet about the whole thing. We have had a dreamy summer. Think lazy days on the beach. Lots of s’mores around the fire pit. And restocking the sunscreen weekly. But, I can feel fall creeping in. It is starting to smell crisp...

Caramel Apple Toffee Blondies

You know what I love most about apple season? Caramel. Caramel goes with everything. So do apples, it turns out. They go especially well with blondes, toffee, and homemade caramel sauce.

It’s located in Santana Row close to Hotel Valencia, our host hotel for that weekend. A churrascaria is a place where meat is cooked in churrasco style (Portuguese for ‘barbecue’),...

Dark Chocolate Blueberry Energy Bites

An easy recipe for fudgy protein-packed energy bites. They taste like an oatmeal cookie fell into a brownie, but they’re still skinny & low calorie!     On Monday evening, I loaded up my car with lots of heavy boxes and drove 80 miles south to my parents’ place, all while listening to my...
