Yummy Flatbread Lunch

Necessity is the mother of invention, and I invented my own tasty flatbread treat this weekend. I bought some yummy naan from Trader Joes and was too tired lazy to cook something fancy, so I got inventive with what was on hand. For this meal, my kitchen had a sweet potato, an avocado and some…

Broth Bowl

Lately, I love to devour my meals via broth bowls. Even in the summer, it’s an easy, different way to consume my food. There’s a place in St. Louis called HotPot and they have amazing, fresh broth bowls with ingredients sourced locally, but now that I’ve moved and live farther away from said restaurant, I…

Moving Right Along

As I mentioned before, this summer was a whirlwind of excitement and adventure. The main reason is… Hubby and I BOUGHT A HOUSE! Crazy, right?

May Reads

You know how you start a book and it’s good, but then life happens and you don’t read the book for two weeks and you weren’t far enough to be really invested in the story and you started to forget what was happening and how characters are connected? That was how I started my book…

SLC

Until last year, I had never been to Utah or Salt Lake City. But in the last year I’ve been there three times for work and I’ve loved every visit. I really enjoy traveling, but whenever I travel west it seems like I’m stepping into a different world, and Salt Lake is no exception. One…
