Are you a meals person or a snacker? I’m definitely the latter, always grazing on small bites throughout the day. Now that I’ve got a new studio complete with a fridge, I’ve been keeping it stocks with snacks so I don’t crash. Protein and fresh veggies really do the trick and lately I’m loving these veggie sushi rolls that we whipped up. The eggs provide tons of protein, while the veggies and nuts provide the perfect crunchy bite that I always seem to crave (I’m more into savory flavors than sweet). Be sure to make a batch of our healthy sushi rolls for your next workday snack!
Confession: I don’t know what this cocktail recipe tastes like with the whiskey. The truth is that I’m attempting to go the entire month of January without drinking (aka Drynuary), so I could only taste test this one as a mocktail! Oops… but let’s be real here, whiskey just makes everything better. I knew I wanted to share a healthy cocktail with you guys this month, so we combined the delicious citrus flavor of pomelo with the effervescence and deliciously sour taste of kombucha. Even if you’re taking the month off from booze, this recipe is heavenly.
I don’t know about you guys, but the holidays did a number on my healthy eating routine! I’ve found myself digging back through the blog archives to pull up past recipes with lots of yummy and (most importantly) healthy ingredients. These salads, infused waters, and even a burger will help you stay on track with those resolutions and fitness goals!
Here are my top 8:
- apple “cookies”
- yogurt + granola power bowl
- sweet potato quinoa burgers
- gold sumac kale salad
- 3 fancy water combinations
- kale chickpea seed salad
- sprouted rice pilaf + cilantro pesto
- winter kale salad

This will be my first year in #mytinybungalow for Christmas and I want to start some new traditions. A luxurious, delicious breakfast is definitely on my list. Greenpan was kind enough to send a set of their ceramic non-stick pans and I knew this was the perfect opportunity to test them out. I’ve always wanted to make a Dutch baby and simply didn’t realize just how easy it can be. We added another holiday staple, citrus, for an easy, delicious breakfast that’s great for sharing.
I need to interrupt our regularly scheduled gift guides and DIY posts because interior-designer-turned-my-BFF Jessica McCarthy (remember how she made over my living room and dining room via Decorist??) has seriously blown my damn mind. A few days ago, she texted me a photo of her mid-century modern gingerbread house and I begged her to send instructions so I could share with you guys!

I’m not much of a dessert eater, but when I am in the mood, I indulge… especially now that it’s officially the holiday season! Tiramisu is one of my favorites and I felt like the creamy, espresso flavors would translate nicely into a cocktail. This way, I can combine my dessert and my cocktail! I especially love this recipe for entertaining because you can make the coffee and coconut cream ahead of time, then assemble the drinks as your guests are ready.
There’s a bar here in my neighborhood that serves Sean’s favorite drink. Called a Tapatio Mustache, it consists of a shot of chili infused tequila poured into the neck of a Pacifico beer. It’s pretty straightforward, but he absolutely loves it… which got me thinking. Wouldn’t infused liquor make a great gift? So we whipped up 3 recipes for infused liquors: Orange + Pomegranate Infused Vodka, Habanero Infused Mezcal, and Pie Spice Infused Rum. Also, Becky from Chipper Things was kind enough to hand letter cute gift tags for each one!
