These herbs will not only keep you warm in the winter months but also help…

Spicy Caramel Nut Mix

I love to have nuts but why cant we add some spice to them as well. With so many holiday treats being filled with fats and sugars, these candied nuts will at least offer you some herbs to help support your digestion and keep you warm at night. The only challenging part of making this…

This recipe is a delicious favorite of mine and I feel responsible that I have to share it with you so I don’t lose it myself. It is super simple and I often just have these ingredients sitting around my home so no need to make an extra trip to the grocery store. Ingredients 1…

Lovely Leaves

This lovely craft is super simple and inexpensive. It makes a great gift. Only catch is…you need to grab those leaves and make it now before their lovely colors disappear, if they haven’t already. This simple craft only requires a few supplies. Keep in mind, the leaves will still fade in color over time but…

Fruit Sorbet

This recipe is super easy and amazingly delicious. There are many ways to make it your own. I recommend starting with your fruit already frozen if you want to taste some before it goes into the freezer a second time. It is also necessary to have a good high powered blender for this recipe because…

Redefining Fear

A few years ago I began immersing myself in a culture that was not quite my own. Like with all new environments, I found that words that I knew no longer meant the same thing. When I moved to Washington, DC I learned that the word ‘transparent’ does not mean the same thing to everyone….

Finding New Perspective

Now I am an idea person. I say this all the time. Often times people don’t like this and find it annoying when I share my ideas. I respect your desire to not hear my ideas and over time I have developed the skill to remember to ask someone (when it could be intrusive) if…

I Don’t Have Allergies Anymore

For nearly 6 months now I have not had an allergic reaction to any of my known allergens. I don’t believe it myself. Something happened and something changed but I don’t believe it. My list of ‘allergens’ is not a long one but it has been a unique one. By definition, an allergen is something…
