What I Ate This Week | Soba Noodles, Homemade Cabbage Chips and Nashville!

As I mentioned before, Chris and I went to Nashville last weekend to meet up with his family. It’s kind of a nice halfway point between Chicago and Raleigh, so it worked out well.

Recipe | Ginger Watermelon Italian Ice

Every August, the same things happens. I suddenly realize that summer is winding down. Fall is right around the corner. And then I freak out. “Summer is almost over!

A Visit to the Charleston Tea Plantation + Iced Tea with Honey Lemon Ginger Ice Cubes

Raspberry Ginger Popsicles Recipe + Zoku Quick Pop Maker Giveaway

I’m not sure how it’s already May, but somehow it is. And even though summer is still a month away, lately it’s been feeling like it’s here already–the humidity, the afternoon downpours, the heat.

Ginger Peach Popsicles

Recipe | Ginger Peach Popsicles

These Ginger Peach Popsicles were supposed to be for my first outdoor photo shoot. Normally I take all my photos in the dining room. We have two big windows in there, so I get a decent amount of natural light. But for some reason after making these popsicles, I came to the conclusion that I…
