A Spring Tradition: Cheesy Photos

Spring Pics 13/14

Every year our local mall has the traditional Bunny set up and honestly I find it a little creepy. An oversized, slightly clownish, bunny is scary to me so I can’t imagine what he looks like from a child’s perspective. Despite that he may be what nightmares are made of, we still go and visit […]

Legendary Snickers Cupcakes

Snickers Cupcake

I’m the unofficial baker in the family and often receive birthday requests. So when my youngest brother requested a snickers cupcake I of course said — challenge accepted! A nod to all my fellow How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) fans Normally, I would make everything from scratch including the buttercream but it just wasn’t […]

Shot@Life Champion Summit

Shot@Life Aims To Reduce 1.5 millions deaths

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Shot@Life Champion Summit in Washington, D.C. I mentioned a few weeks back that I was selected as a Champion to advocate for children’s global health but I didn’t really elaborate too much. Now that I’m back and I have had the opportunity to let the experience […]

Light Pesto and Sundried Tomato Pasta

Creamy Light Pesto Pasta

I love the smell of basil and this simple creamy pesto is a perfect use for it. It’s rich and filling but doesn’t leave you feeling stuffed. The addition of the ricotta adds an extra dose of protein, making this a nice well rounded meal. In comparison to most pesto recipes, this one calls for […]
