Spring forward

Published on May 21, 2015, by in Uncategorized.

It’s been quite some time since I last posted. I haven’t been making a ton of recipes lately, but mostly eating things that don’t require a lot of complicated ingredients as I’m always trying to eliminate¬†processed foods from my diet. Most of the things that ¬†I make that require a recipe are baked goods that I make/take to other people.

So, let me catch you up on what I’ve been doing!

For Brian’s birthday in April, I made chocolate peanut butter cupcakes with a mini pb cup baked inside. We took them to a bar where we met friends for delicious beers.

My birthday weekend was spent planting my garden. We had to haul in some extra dirt and the Crafty Beaver was nice enough to let us borrow a card to push it over to my plot.


I transported some of my plants to the garden by bike basket:


We took time to relax and enjoy the perfectly sunny and warm day by having margaritas on a patio:


And I made some delicious roasted tomatillo salsa:


I took my actual birthday off and had my first attempt at baking salted caramel macaroons. I didn’t get the batter quite right, but they still tasted great:


After all the celebrating, I needed to get back on track. I have been enjoying green smoothie bowls for breakfasts on the weekends with warmer weather here.


I made my first ever “naked caked” for a work party. It was lemon with lemon curd buttercream, topped with blueberries. And it was delightful.


See you around soon!
