Hi.

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find amazing recipes that are good and good for you, along with different styling ideas for your home and lifestyle blogs by me!

These are a Few of my Favorite Things

As Julie Andrews once sang in the Sound of Music.... "These are a few of my Favorite thingsss" I am sharing with you a few of my kitchen must haves.  The common misconception with cooking or baking is that you need so many appliances to make things "healthy" or "better for you"  I am hear to tell you that this is FALSE! A few staple items in your kitchen and you will be set to create and devour delicious foods and baked goods (preferably from my recipe section ;))

Plus with the Holiday seasons fast approaching these items will make fantastic gifts!

1. Nutri Ninja Blender- This blender will be a lifesaver in the morning when you need a quick and easy breakfast smoothie or a simple sauce that needs to be thrown together for dinner!

2. Ninja Professional Blender- This was a wedding gift from our fantastic friends Sam and Carol, and we use it every.single.day.  It is fantastic for whipping up cauliflower rice, pureeing sweet potatoes, making blender brownies, or of course those amazing cocktails that we all need after a longggg day of work!

3. KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer- This was a Christmas gift from Tyler a few years back.  I was dying to have one for all of my days of recipe testing, and it was the BEST surprise on Christmas Eve ( when we exchange gifts).  This mixer is guaranteed to change the way you bake forever.  This mixer not only does the job of whisking but also makes fantastic grain-free dough, whisks together coconut whipped cream like a dream, and has the ability to provide different speeds ( which my poor arms do not)

4. KitchenAid Spiralizer attachment- Another wedding gift that I LOVE!  Tyler and I are huge fans of dried fruit, zoodles, and of course spoodles (sweet potato noodles).  Spoodles are a staple dinner in our house for the sole reason that we can eat "pasta-like" dishes and still feel fantastic afterwards...not to mention I have a slight obsession with sweet potatoes!

5. Cuisinart Food Processor- This machine is the ultimate blender, chopper, and truffle maker.  With its super sharp "S" blade, and its ability to grate and chop, it is a true winner for any household.

6. The Nespresso Machine- For all you coffee lovers out there ( myself included) this is a MUST!! This machine creates the perfect cup of coffee, fantastic cappuccinos, and delicious espresso!  The little pods are both colorful and packed with flavor and caffeine.  We bought this machine this past summer, and use it almost everyday, and you will too!
