The sweet summer breeze has been hitting my sun-kissed cheeks lately, leaving a big smile on my face. After a cold and wet spring, the warmer weather is much welcomed! The farmers markets are starting up, overflowing with the fresh fruits and vegetables of spring. Fluttering birds chirp longingly in anticipation for the berry season’s sweet fruits, but they aren’t the only ones. 😉
There’s nothing quite like waking up to the sweet smell of pancakes. While it’s easy to buy a box of pancake mix, it’s almost just as easy to make your own! That way you get no questionable ingredients and can customize them to your liking!
There was a time in my life when I literally ate muffins ALL THE TIME. No joke. Freshman year of college was a muffin bonanza for me because the muffins they had at college were, dare I say, the bomb. Not the healthiest obsession, but hey, I didn’t care at the time. Muffins speak to all your emotions. When you’re sad, they comfort you. When you’re happy, they rejoice with you. When you’re hungry, they mask that hunger with their muffiny goodness.
Brussels sprouts are the perfect side dish. Their subtle yet delectable taste compliments almost any dish while providing numerous vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese, and potassium. They’re also higher in protein than other green vegetables, boasting 3 grams per cup.
