I know this is the second “tip” entry in a row but I’ve been working on some new recipes that just aren’t quite right yet. I promise next post will have food involved! For this post I decided to write just a few of the life lessons I have learned from my mother. For my entire life, my mom has been teaching me things that I didn’t even realize until I called on them...
Tips from Grandma
Last week was spring break so needless to say, I did not do a lot of cooking. However, I did have dinner with my grandmother over break which is quite possibly the food highlight of any trip home.

To maintain a healthy lifestyle, these can not be options in your life. In some cases though, you just...
Breakfast of Champions
Hey guys! I wanted to start off this blog letting you know what I eat (practically) every morning for breakfast. Its quick and easy and super delicious while also being very! healthy and a great way to start off your healthy eating for the day. It is basically my own version of an egg mcmuffin and depending on my mood and supplies that day depends on how I make it, but really, you can use what...
Hello readers! After much thought and consideration, I have finally heeded my mother’s advice and created a blog! I am about to graduate from college and have learned so much in my (almost) four years. I want this blog to be a collection of the lessons I have learned as well as the ones I continue to learn. Feel free to ask questions and I will answer them to the best of my ability. I am so...
