Zucchini season is HERE because my Pinterest give food to told me so. I even made a board devoted to everything zucchini (shameless plug in order to adhere to me!).

If you’re convinced that you would by no means put zucchini within a baked good, it’s time to escape your comfort zone because these muffins are MIND-BLOWING and filled with chocolate like with no zucchini taste.

Hello from beautiful Scottsdale, AZ! MAY I simply say how good it feels to maintain warm weather without a headscarf, layer or mittens? I am craving warm sunlight on my pores and skin since early Oct.

Dear Flu,

I couldn’t sleep, eat, as well as laugh. Drinking chicken broth and viewing people eat pie is not a way to spend the holiday. This is actually the second time you’ve tortured me on Turkey Day. Mean.

I’m leaving on the jet airplane… headed to incredibly sunlit Warm weather to drink margaritas, consume cupcakes, mexican meals, AND frozen yogurt.

My list is definitely huge. Successful females. Chefs. Authors. The mom in Whole Foods with four children. My bicycle. The guy in yoga exercise with those incredible abs (call me). Those that live compassionately. Background. A challenge. People who think that everyday brings a new opportunity to develop, take risks, and smile.

Last time I was in California I met up with Veronica, the founder of the vegan, gluten-free Pure Bar s. She is a one who really inspires me.

I’m so excited because today I get to grab Tony from your airport. We’ve a fun couple of days planned in Chicago, after that I’ll be headed back again to Alabama with him for another week or so. He usually by no means gets any moment off through the period so we will soak upRead more

WHOLE WHEAT GRAINS Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (made with greek yogurt!)

We attended a conference in KC over the weekend and quickly developed a crush over the quaint small town that’s bursting with vegan bakeries, scrumptious food and beautiful parks.
