Spring is definitely here! It’s such a nice time of year and I love all the new, colorful produce that will be in season. Spring is great for fresh salads and lighter fare and this one fits the bill well. Sweet strawberries in season are my fav! There is nothing like fresh mint to really give a recipe some fresh zing.

Since eating more fermented foods, I don’t really have too much of a sweet tooth like I used to after dinner. I used to always want a little something sweet! Still, occasionally, I do love a good piece of rich, super dark chocolate or something that is not loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients. Chocolate macaroons are the perfect treat or on-the-go snack. These have a super rich chocolate flavor using raw cacao and I added a special spicy kick using cinnamon and cayenne. It really works well with the chocolate for a ‘Mayan’ flair.

Chris and I have been making and consuming lots of fermented foods and drinks. It’s so much fun to make them and they are super beneficial to boot. I was very excited when I received some Zukay Kvass to try. While we do try to make our own fermented foods most of the time, because it is usually cheaper, it’s always nice to have an easy back-up ready in the fridge. [More Yum →]
Hello friends! I had the privilege of being in a good friend’s wedding this past weekend in St. Pete’s Beach and it was absolutely stunning! Chris was able to come along too and we really enjoyed it.
I got in Thursday evening and helped the bride get a few more last minute things done… [More Yum →]
