Low-Sugar Treats I’ve Been Digging Since I Cut Down on Added Sugar

I talked with my OBGYN about the best way to prevent this baby being born with hypoglycemia, as Little Cotton Candy was. Her advice? Cut out sugary snacks and combine carbs/fruit with protein to keep my blood sugar as level as possible. I’m not gonna lie—it’s been rough. I miss dessert like crazy. I craved […]


Reverse Seared Ribeye with Chimichurri

Mr. Heels doesn’t cook much, but he loves to grill. He especially loves his thick, juicy ribeyes, and is always finding ways to make it better.

Their favorite vegetable has always been raw cucumbers, particularly the Persian or East Asian varieties because they […]


Homemade Granola

My love language is food; I love to grocery shop, reorganize the pantry, eat, look for new places to dine, research the latest food trends, and most of all, cook. Anything to do with food makes me overwhelmingly happy. While I meal plan every week, I do not tend to do a whole lot of […]
