Garlic Butter Salmon

I am back again with another great recipe for my #BackToSchool series. If you are returning to school, or are just trying to get back into your work routine, then these recipes will really help you out! They are quick, simple and can be enjoyed by both adults and children. For today’s recipe, I have come up with a super simple Garlic Butter Salmon. This salmon filet is baked in a parchment paper package in the oven to keep it juicy and succulent. The addition of a homemade garlic butter makes this recipe extra delicious and adds lots of moisture to the salmon as it cooks. All Wrapped Up This Garlic Butter Salmon is very easy to make. Simply combine butter, garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a bowl and mix everything until combined. Spread the butter mixture evenly over the salmon filet and wrap everything up in a nice parchment paper package. Once the salmon is all wrapped up, just bake it in the oven for 20 minutes or so! You barely have …

Coconut & Date Bars

Apples with nut butter. Bananas. Carrot sticks and hummus. Frozen grapes. A handful of mixed nuts. I’m stuck in a healthy snack rut. 🙁 As good as I am with coming up with new recipes, the meal that I struggle with the most is snacks. While I’m all for eating snacks (I mean who isn’t- snacks are amazing and prevent you from getting hangry), after eating the same ones over and over again, it gets a bit boring. Enter my Coconut & Date Bars. Made with sweet and sticky Medjool dates, shredded coconut, lemon zest, and toasted walnuts, this easy no-bake snack can be whipped up in 10 minutes. They’re basically date bars without the flour and butter, making these bars a perfectly healthy snack that satisfies your sweet cravings. They’re so sweet naturally that they can even be called a dessert. Yes, I said it, dessert. Add these Coconut & Date Bars into your healthy snack repertoire and your belly will thank you.

Happy New Year // Eggs in Purgatory

Happy New Year, everyone! I am currently recovering from New Years festivities. I went pretty hard last night and I hope you guys did too. Just remember, it’s all in the name of celebrating a whole new year full of adventures! I have been excited for 2017 to start since January of 2016 (for many reasons) and I am so happy that it is finally here. The New Year offers a chance to start off on a clean slate and set your mind on what you are going to achieve this year in your life. I have many plans for this year. First is to get this blog rollin’. I’ve had some time off from my job these past few weeks and have rediscovered my passion for cooking and blogging. Believe me when I say I have been happy to share my recipes with you all… but I’m going to the next level in 2017. This means lots more content coming your way! Not only stepping it up with my recipes, but with bringing you …

Sage Advice

Have you ever had this happen to you: you never hear a word or a phrase or see something in a long time (or maybe even ever) and then you hear or see it consistently? This happened to me this week and it totally creeped me out. For the past 25 years of my life, I have never heard the phrase “offer sage advice”. Then, all of a sudden- out of no where- I hear it four times within a week. Creepy, right? I always think it’s some sort of sign… and perhaps it is for me. Maybe not a sign that I should be offering sage advice to another person (I don’t think I am wise enough to be offering personal or life advice to people)…. but maybe it’s a sign that I should be offering my Sage Advice Cocktail to others? Yes. I think that sounds much better. This cocktail offers a seasonal twist on the traditional Gin Sour. A Gin Sour typically contains gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup and is shaken …
