I often share little peeks into my home on Instagram, and each time I do I get requests for a blog post with more photos of my holiday decor.  I don’t go completely crazy, but I do really love to change my decor around for certain holidays.  For smaller holidays like Valentines Day, Easter, and…

So can we talk about how opening canned biscuits is one of the single most terrifying life experiences?? The anticipation…the noise…the explosion…it’s all too much. As I was photographing this recipe, I started to take a picture and then realized to really maximize the impact, it should be a video. It was terrifying. I knew…

Pumpkin Butter.  I spent most of my adult life with little interest in pumpkin butter.  I think it comes from some deep-rooted scars of my youth after tasting apple butter for the first time and realizing it had absolutely nothing do to with actual butter.  (I mean, false advertising, right?)  But one time when I needed…

The most requested topic in our Fit Club and Fit Club instagram over the past months has been about counting macros.  If you’ve heard this term and wondered what the deal is, this post is for you!  I like to think of macro tracking as kind of advanced calorie counting.  Instead of focusing on the total number of…

Yeah, yeah, yeah…fall is the season of baking. And soup. You know what else it is the season of? Dips. Hot dips. I don’t care about football (gasp). But I do care about dips. The first time I made this dip, it literally disappeared within 5 minutes, and that was just with my family–like, 2…

I’m just going to get right to it.  I love Pumpkin Spice. (What?  You guessed that?) Always have.  You know when imagine those people in marketing meetings saying “Who cares what it is- slap a pumpkin spice label on there and people will buy it!”  They’re talking about me.  I’m the people.  And I did something…

Because I’m a food blogger, a lot of people assume I’m also a food snob. Generally speaking, as long as I don’t have to make food myself, I’m pretty un-pretentious (although I find that I get progressively more snobby the more money I pay for food. Like, if I’m paying $10 for a waffle, that…

So for those of you who have been with us for awhile, you know that for us, balancing the whole blog thing with the whole healthy lifestyle thing can be quite a juggle. We both love delicious food (and not, like, paleo pancake delicious…we’re talking gooey, carb-filled cinnamon rolls delicious.) We’re busy. We’re tired. Sometimes…

Can we talk about sheet cakes for a minute?  I love a good sheet cake.  They’re easy, casual-yet-classy, and best of all, feed a crowd.  Most sheet cakes you can serve in big squares and eat with a knife and fork, or cut in small bars and serve as finger food. This spiced pumpkin version…

I don’t know what it is about the change in seasons, but I always get a little hankering to clean and organize.  I’ve been tackling projects like kids’ closets, bathroom drawers, and those cupboards I stuff junk in all the time and then pretend they don’t exist.  Did you guys catch my Instastory about my…

So you know how everywhere you look, there are Hawaiian Roll ham sandwiches, and people are like, “Ohhhhh my goooosh, these are amazing, where did this wonder come from?!” And the the whole time, I’m thinking, “I’ve been making these FOREVER. I thought EVERYONE made them. What else do people eat at parties???” So. I’m…

A few years ago after I had bought my first iPhone and was still learning the ropes, my life changed for ever when my friend Brie told me Siri could remind me to do stuff.  Wait, what?  She can tell me not to forget to shower one day?  Or when to start getting my kid…
