Ice Cream Truffles (DF/GF)

Is there anything better on a hot day than homemade ice cream truffles? I don’t think so, and these easy little bites are made with only FOUR real food ingredients. And of course, they are completely delicious, extra chocolatey, and so creamy.

As if it wasn’t clear from all of the feels from my feed this week, I am really ready for the summer weather. I get the feeling most people are, as it’s that time of year when everyone just craves a day full of sunshine and hot temps, maybe glass of summer Rosé, and ice cream!

Always ice cream.

My Favorite Places to Eat in Paris

Oh hey! Fasten your seat belts.

I had so much fun in Paris when I was there. Before I went, people told me that the feeling of the city really overtakes you. I kind of rolled my eyes at this notion… until I realized how correct they were. Paris is a city steeped in history, tradition, and culture of hundreds of years. After the first day, I was completely head over heels for the city. It blends old and new so effortlessly.

It is also no secret that the FOOD in Paris is amazing. I do not think I have eaten so much in my entire life.

Zucchini Pasta with Avocado *Magic* Sauce

When it goes from freezing to hot, you know it is time for summer.

Can you believe that Memorial Day is only TWO WEEKS AWAY?! Seriously where did spring go? To me, Memorial Day marks the start of grilling season and all things summer. I feel like a lot of you may think along those same lines? Either way, the warm weather and long days are slowly creeping their way back into our lives, and as you can guess, I am very excited about it.

My fair skin is ready for the sun! SAFELY, of course.

My Favorite Beauty Products (Morning Routine)

I always think it is so fun to see into people’s lives. Why do you think reality TV is just so darn popular? So, for the next couple of weeks, I am letting into my routines that I have during various times of the day. We are starting this series probably the only way I can think of: with my morning routine!

Working an 8-6 full time job, I have to have my beauty routine DOWN. There is not a minute to waste when I get up in to morning. Personally, I like to exercise in the morning, be it with free weights or with a nice run, but, regardless, I need products that can get me from the gym and the office in no time at all!

Double Chocolate Almond Butter Pistachio Cookies (GF/DF)

Who doesn’t love anything with the words “double chocolate”?

Um people who clearly need to have more chocolate in their life, that is who!

I have always had a very large obsession with anything chocolate. Can you blame me? My absolute favorite cake to get for my birthday was a chocolate “devil dog” cake with chocolate mousse and chocolate ganache. Sure, I would end up with half of the cake all over my face, but that would never stop me from indulging in my favorite chocolate! Do you blame me?
