Heirloom Tomato and Watermelon Salad

Heirloom Tomato and Watermelon Salad

Oh guys, I am beyond predictable. I go on vacation for a week, then I come back and make you salads. Well, I come back and make me salads. And therefore you all get salads, too! So does Nate. Oops. We just got back on Sunday night from a week on Martha’s Vineyard with my family. I’m usually…

Race Recap: Deseret News Half Marathon

Another race, another PR! Yayyy. Warning: I had a little too much fun with my new VSCOcam app and yesterday’s pictures. Running photos + iPhone photos = worst photos ever, so I thought I could at least use a few filters to minimize the glare of my sweaty forehead. Right? Right. To most of you,…

Stuffed Avocados with Crunchy Asian Cabbage Slaw

When it comes to clothes shopping, I have a cardinal rule: if it isn’t going to be your new favorite thing, don’t buy it. It means you don’t really like it that much. If it’s just OK now in the store, how is it going to look with a few wrinkles when you’ve waited a…

Summer Baked BBQ Bowl

The wedding gifts we registered for are bordering on what my dad likes to call a “life upgrade.” Do you know what he’s talking about?

Sometimes I think back to the bag lunch days, when I totally took my parents making my lunch for granted. Silly kid! First of all, I hated leftovers. I don’t think we had microwaves in our school cafeteria to heat anything up, so I guess that makes it a bit more understandable. Or maybe we did…

Wedding Cake, etc.

Bridezilla on the loose! So far, the most fun part of wedding planning has been anything that makes it seem real. Seeing Nate in his suit… getting my hair and makeup done… seeing our venue in all its summer beauty. Those last two happened this past weekend when I went back to Massachusetts for what…

Do I have an exciting post for you today! You may remember my friend Julia of The Roasted Root. Julia is a health food maven and blogger extraordinaire. She’s known for her gluten-free goodies, savory stews, and kick-ass kombucha, but most of all, the girl can roast a mean root. Not a beet, carrot or…

Summer berry season is ON. These glorious juicy little berries are the #1 (food-related) reason I look forward to summer. Have I said that before… perhaps about tomatoes? peaches? basil? Blasphemy. Berries are my all-time favorite summer food. And just because it’s fun, here are my top non-food-related reasons to look forward to summer: Dresses…

Chickpea Caesar Salad Wraps

Hello hello – it’s been a while! I hope you’ll excuse my absence. {Insert sheepish face here.} Sometimes the summer weather just ruins all your cookin’ plans, ya know? Like, you really wanted to roast pans upon pans of veggies, then you realized that you could probably roast them on the sidewalk because it is…
