New Series // Feb Bento Box lunch

Hello amigos! Today is a really exciting day on the blog because we are introducing one of my new favorite series…*drumroll* our monthly bento box! Working at a preschool has gotten me really into the nostalgia of packing a “real” lunch. Seeing the kids adorable heart shaped sandwiches and homemade snacks has got me feeling like my lunches might be a little lackluster. Typically when it comes to lunches I am either rushing to stuff leftovers into a tupperware container, or I am hastily slapping together a PB&J. It is not exactly a pretty picture and I must say that it…

Currently Digging // February Edition

Hello everyone! Today we are dipping back into our newest series “Currently Digging” after a brief hiatus. With so much going on these last few months, the only thing I have been “digging” is sleep when I get a chance to partake in it, and red wine. Now that we are really getting our routine back-in-order and getting our brains in the right place, I am excited to say that we are starting to explore new things again. It feels ah-mazing. We have been exploring new restaurants, TV shows, movies, books, all kinds of adventures to keep ourselves up to…

Healthy Black Bean Brownies (Vegan, Gluten Free)

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I have been searching high and low for a “healthy” black bean brownie recipe.

That is where I got the idea to whip up a batch of black bean brownies. I love these brownies from Chocolate Covered Katie, so I decided to do my own take on them. I made them a little sweeter (hey…

5 Minute Valentine’s Day Treat

Hola chicas! Today we are talking about a super easy and yummy cocomel pretzel treat that you can make in just five minutes (yes you read that right). I have always been a real sucker for Valentine’s Day, it is my mom’s birthday and so I think that has always made it seem extra special. Whether I have had a significant other or not, who doesn’t love an excuse to tell everyone you love them and eat a sh*t ton of chocolate? I’ll take that any day. For these treats I used trusty old JJ’s Cocomels of course (honestly they didn’t…

Salted Cocomel Mashed Sweet Potatoes (Vegan)

Ahhh Thanksgiving. Is there another day that is as warm and family centric in the year? Every year my dad invites over our entire family for a huge Thanksgiving feast, we are talking 45 people dinners here, and every year it is even more fun than the last. There is family football, football on TV (go niners!), drinks, music and of course, tons of food. It is one of my favorite days of the year, but unfortunately (fortunately?) this year we just bought a house and we will be spending the holidays away from family here in Austin. There is…
