Blue Majik Chamomile Face Mask

We were in Scottsdale for our retreat and it started to rain. Yes, it was raining in Arizona. Rachel and I had planned for a hike and some good outdoor adventure and we were faced with quite the debacle. We had it on the agenda to talk about self care but it turned into a…


Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

I just led a retreat in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was the most magnificent time and truly gave me the opportunity to cook for the fall. We had a packed schedule with hiking, yoga, and face masks so our meals had to be quick but delicious. I wanted these women to feel like they could make these…


Activated Charcoal Energy Balls

I was on a little bit of an activated charcoal kick the other week. The uses for this stuff is out of this world. Check out the blog here to discover more articles on activated charcoal. You know I have a pretty big obsession with energy balls so here is a new one for ya!…


Energy Mastery Energy Balls

We went on this retreat to Palm Springs and there was no food processor in the house. I was the chef for the weekend. Luckily there was a potato masher so I get a little bicep work in. That thing came in handy for the black bean burgers, hummus, and beet hummus. Our plan for…


Apple Pie Crockpot Oatmeal

I was teaching a yoga class the other day and my friend Rachel and her boyfriend came in. Jim whispered to Rachel, “is that the oatmeal girl?” Rachel had been making him the Blueberry Muffin Crockpot Oatmeal I put up a while ago and he absolutely fell in love. I talked to them a little…


Healthy Hot Chocolate

My sister is obsessed with hot chocolate and I’m obsessed with eating and drinking things out of her ceramics (almost all my photos are taken in her bowls or mugs). I invited her over the other night for dinner and hot cocoa. Thankfully, I tested this recipe beforehand since she’s quite the chocolate snob. It…


Cashew Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I was known in college as “Mama Ridge.” This was probably in part due to the fact that I made chocolate chip cookies nearly every day. I try to avoid gluten and dairy as much as possible so to be honest, I have probably made chocolate chip cookies once or twice in the last three…

Pumpkin Oat Energy Bites

Pumpkin, Oat, Sacha Inchi Seed, Chocolate Energy Balls

Sacha Inchi seeds have been my ingredient of choice over the last week or two. They’re so interesting and have the perfect nutty flavor. If you hang out with me often, you’ll know that I always am bringing around random foods for people to try. So if you’ve been with me in the last two…


What’s the Sticky on Honey?

“Sugar pie, honey bunch You know that I love you I can’t help myself I love you and nobody else.” Swatting a bee away? Not anymore! I’ll be humming this tune next time one buzzes in my ear. Honey is at its prime during the summer and fall as it gets harvested at this time….


Nut Butter Cups

One bite. A thin nut butter layer with a chocolate coating collapses into your mouth. This little piece of candy made me wonder “how on earth do they get the nut butter in the middle?” Well, it’s rather quite simple. There’s this slender, scrumptious layer of chocolate that gets poured into the mold. The nut…
