Camping & Unplugging

It’s truly been quite a while since I’ve last blogged. Last weekend, twenty-two of my cousins and I got together and spent three days in the middle of the Tehachapi Mountains in Central California with no electricity and no cell reception. Lemme tell you, it felt so weird to not have ANY access to the rest…

Vegan Chocolate Cake (In 30 Minutes!)

This recipe has been in my family for a while, but I’m not sure if anyone knows exactly where it came from to be honest. Because of my food allergies, several of my family members went out of their way on special occasions to find things that I could eat. This cake is a result…

Chicken & Broccoli Ramen Remix

Even though I’m finally done with school, I still don’t really want to spend hours in the kitchen. I mean, I definitely still enjoy cooking, but when you’re already hungry it feels like it takes an eternity to put together a tasty meal.

Does anyone else have an insanely demanding schedule? Fall is supposed to be beautiful; all the leaves change color…

Recipe: Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles

Avocados are the addiction of many Californians and chocolate is a girl’s best friend. I’m a California girl and therefore, must share these with you. Several weeks before I went to Europe this year, my roommate made a batch of these glorious little desserts and since then, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them. I’ve…

Recipe: Easy Peach Cobbler

We finally got some rain in Southern California, woohoo! Albeit nowhere near enough to pull us out of this drought, at least Mother Nature is trying to help. Here, rain in the summer is incredibly rare! Because hitting up the beach wasn’t really an option, we all had to find other ways to spend our…
