Thankfully, I had all the necessary ingredients and kitchen tools on hand, which is surprising since I use them probably twice a year. Macarons are made with almond flour making them […]

It’s Wednesday and many bloggers share what they eat on hump day. I’m not sure who started it but I did a pretty good job at photographing my meals yesterday so why not!? I just started my new DietBet – which you can still join – so my diet is a little different than normal. […]
