Caramel Apple Dip

  One of my favorite activities growing up was apple picking and I’m so happy that I get to share it with my 3 year old, Makena. She absolutely loves picking the apple and taking a bite right off the tree.

But that’s why you love me right?  I never tell you that you can’t have those indulgences and cravings.  If you want it, then have it, just be wiser about […]


6 Components You Need For Making The Most Delicious & Filling Salad

So if this sounds like you at all, then this post is for you.  When I sat down and thought about it, I realized that every salad should contain specific ingredients.  They not only make it taste great, but it’ll […]
