  In mid-November, I flew back from spending the weekend at my grandparents’ house in Arizona. As we boarded the plane, a tiny aircraft with only fourteen rows and two seats per side (and the stewardess even asked people to change seats before taking off to evenly distribute our weight in the cabin!), I...

  Three days ago, we celebrated Thanksgiving. After cooking the turkey and Great-Grandma’s stuffing, her special cranberry relish and my maple sweet potato casserole, homemade whole wheat rolls {do you want the recipe for them??} and two different types of pies, we sat down at the table to enjoy our small five-person feast. A...

  Last weekend, my dad invited some of his college buddies over for dinner followed by their annual penny poker night. When he asked if I’d make my ultimate healthy cornbread to go along with their grilled sausages, garlic mashed potatoes, and sautéed veggies, I immediately agreed. My mom and I sat with the guys...

  I joined Snapchat shortly before I flew to Chicago for this food blogging conference last fall, and I started following Kristen from Dine and Dish about a week before my trip. I immediately fell in love with her weekday “Coffee Talk” snaps, and whenever I replied to what she shared, she quickly typed out a response...

  On this weekend a year ago, I was in Chicago for a food blogging conference. After arriving a day early to squeeze in some sightseeing, I spent much of the next two days with my gluten-free food blogging friend, Jane. (She actually lives in my tiny California hometown—what a small world!) On the...

  Last weekend, one of my best friends drove down to visit, and we headed over to our old high school to attend its annual marching band competition. We arrived right as the first band spread out in formation on the football field to start their program, and a few field shows later, the...

  This past week, I celebrated my six-year “blogiversary.” Six full years of blogging! Six years of testing recipes, photographing food, writing stories, and sharing it all with you here… I know it’s cliché, but time really does fly when you’re having fun! When I first contemplated creating a website of my own in...

  Last week, I received a text from my aunt (a fairly rare occurrence!), which asked if I had a copy of her father’s Cowboy Coffee Cake recipe. I wrote back that I did not, but I knew it came from one of his cookbooks since I had baked it for Christmas during my...

  The postseason started this past week for Major League Baseball, so on Tuesday, my dad and I both left work slightly early to watch the first wild card game together. (Baseball is our favorite sport, and we’re in the process of visiting all 30 MLB stadiums together. We’ve already checked off 22 of...

  This past week, I stopped by the local high school to visit one of my closest friends who handles the attendance, absences, and passes for all of the students. After I handed her a package of my healthy pumpkin cinnamon rolls, we chatted for a few minutes during the quiet afternoon lull in...
