The time has come! The year is finally coming to an end and I am looking forward to the next year. I remember other years when this day has come that I just couldn’t wait for the next year because I was over it and wanted a fresh start. This isn’t the case this year. … More Reflections on 2017: A Year Without Resolutions
If I am being completely honest, I haven’t been feeling like myself for a quite a while. I have only halfheartedly wanted to blog. I have tons of trashed or half written posts, but I just haven’t had the drive or desire to continue. Call it a quarter-life crisis if you will. I … More Soft Sprinkle & Fudgy Dark Chocolate Cookies
With the resurgence of so many superhero movies and shows, and the pestering of my boss, I realized that I never really explained why I started this blog or where my seemingly odd name choice came from. For starters, the reason I started this blog was not to be “discovered” or to become insta-famous. I happen … More Origin Story
When I sat down at the beginning of the year, I promised myself that I would keep up with the blog better and then I blinked and it was March. Well I am sorry, but I will try to do better.

Now that we are at the end and Chanukkah is here, I can’t believe that this entire year has gotten away from me. Nevertheless, we are here. I … More It’s Hanukkah Y’all!

My husband and I typically bite the bullet and just suck it up, but this year has been insane. We have both been traveling a ton and it just doesn’t make sense this … More Friendsgiving
For those of you who are not familiar with Rosh Hashanah, it is the Jewish New Year and time for reflection and family. As much as I like the sense of renewal and starting over, I am a huge fan of good food. On my list of favorite holidays based on food, Rosh Hashanah is … More Rosh Hashanah Eats & Treats
It may not be fall yet everywhere in the US, but it Seattle it feels like fall is fully upon us. The changing of the season comes the changing of recipes and the social acceptability of making everything pumpkin flavored. I am all for hopping on the pumpkin wagon and don’t worry, those recipes are … More Spice Cookies
Every house has staples that are always in the pantry and ours was on the healthy side. There were no Lunchables, Froot by the Foot, or Capri Sun to be found, but we did have a pantry full of nuts and dried fruit. With those two things on hand, the possibilities are virtually infinite. One … More House Granola
I think that everyone growing up had a favorite Little Debbie treat that would occasionally show up in their lunch box or an after school snack. Be it a Cosmic Brownie, Zebra Cake, Swiss Roll, or Fudge Round, just the sight of the box would send joy and excitement through your body just waiting to devour … More Oatmeal Cream Pies
