Happy Summer! Yesterday was the first day of summer and these beautiful scones were the perfect breakfast to kick off the summer. Ever since I made these cranberry-orange scones that we loved so much, we have been changing up the ingredients to make variations. This summer variation is just as tasty as it is gorgeous (There is no editing on these photos!). We switched out the orange juice in the previous recipe for a blueberry puree and added raspberries in place of the cranberries. Yum yum I love me some scones. Continue reading
Last Saturday Eric and I were trying to decide what to eat for breakfast and decided to just walk up to the store, grab ingredients, and go with the flow. The whole “go with the flow” thing is a little difficult for me because I am a planner. Period. I love knowing what is coming next and the unknown scares me (for somewhat obvious reasons considering my past). Anyway…I grabbed a bunch of ingredients and headed home to make a (sort of) asian inspired hash. Continue reading
This weekend instead of hiking we went on a beach picnic with another (awesome and super fun) couple. It was “Corgi Day” at the beach and we all love animals so we decided to go see all the corgis. There were soooooo mannnyyyy corgis (over 500). We saw corgi puppies, corgis with cowboy hats, corgis in tutus, corgis in bathing suits, corgis with bows, etc.
Wow it has been a stressful week! There are a lot of changes going on right now that are just going to take some getting used to. I’m hoping that this weekend we can go on a nice hike to clear our minds. My mom even sent me new hiking shoes so I am SUPER excited to use those!
Last weekend we didn’t get the chance to go hiking because Eric was working really hard on his talk, so instead of waking up early to go hiking, I woke up early to make french toast sticks! They were so good. They taste like Burger King french toast sticks. Continue reading

Today is Eric’s birthday and I figure it wouldn’t be complete with out some kind of cake. I made funfetti cupcakes a while back and loved the ‘birthday feel’ so I thought I’d change it up a little and make fruity pebble cupcakes. Not only do these cupcakes have fruity pebbles in them, but the milk used to make them was soaked with the cereal to extract that yummy flavor. The cakes actually taste like fruity pebbles! Maybe next I will try a cinnamon toast crunch cupcake…
For dinner tonight we are trying out an Ethiopian restaurant we have been wanting to try for a while, Meals by Genet, on the Jonathan Gold’s 101 best list. We have decided that before we move from Los Angeles we’d like to try as many restaurants on his list as possible. We have only been to 3 so far which leaves 98 more to go haha. So if we stay in LA for another 4 years we need to go to 25 a year…..totally doable right??
Happy Birthday Eric! You are an amazing person and have brought a lot of happiness into my life when I needed it most. Love you to the moon and back.
It is finally final (ha) that we are going to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in October! I am sooo excited. The balloon fiesta has been on my bucket list for a long time now and today we got our train and plane tickets, so it is really happening! Only 191 days to go haha.
So matcha green tea… Continue reading
