Happy Monday! I am feeling relaxed and rejuvenated from my trip to Denver this past weekend. We were celebrating my husband's 30th birthday and enjoying some real fall weather! We arrived Thursday evening and headed straight to our super cool hotel, The Crawford. The Crawford hotel is connected to Union Station, the hub for the… Continue reading Gluten Free in Denver Part 1: Pancakes, Mountains, and Burgers (all Gluten Free!)
Happy Monday Friends! The weather has finally provided us some fall temps here in Dallas. Mid 60's, rainy, and perfect for enjoying my coffee and gluten free pumpkin bread this morning. I had an incredibly busy weekend. I worked all Friday night and Saturday night (yay fall semester!), so I was super excited to take… Continue reading Fall FabFitFun Box, Chili, and Blackberry Cocktails!
I had off work this past Friday. My only plans were to mow the lawn, maybe do some cleaning, and relax. It started pouring about 9am, right as I had just finished mowing the front yard. I gave in to not mowing the back in the rain and came inside. I quickly showered and… Continue reading Weekend Recap: Farmer’s Market, Meal Prep, and Organizing Part 2!
It feels weird talking about last weekend when we are getting so close to the next one, but I wanted to share a couple of great places Nick and I checked out over last weekend in the Dallas area. Spring is definitely here! The weather has been gorgeous and all of the flowers are blooming. Saturday… Continue reading Weekend Recap: Porch Drinks & Soft Serve
I'm heading home! Currently, I'm stuck in Kansas City. My connecting flight has been delayed over an hour. Let's just say this isn't the best airport I've ever been in, but they do have free wifi! I got in to Indianapolis mid-afternoon on Sunday and basically was on the go until bed time. Because of… Continue reading Gluten Free in Indianapolis: Cafe Patachou

A tiny cold front came through last night! It was 65 degrees this morning and wonderful. I'm sad it won't last but I am grateful for this little taste of fall in Texas. Fall weather always has me craving soups. One of my go to soup recipes is an adaptation from The Pioneer Woman. Normally,… Continue reading Chicken Tortilla Soup
Are you in need of some creamy, cheesy, comfort food? I was this weekend, so I made my macaroni and cheese go to recipe, with a little twist. Mac & Cheese brings me back to childhood. Memories of the blue boxed Kraft mac & cheese remind me of being home. While I can't have that pantry… Continue reading Gluten Free Smoked Cheddar Mac & Cheese
Wednesday evening, we headed back to The Columbia for a family dinner. My older sister, her two boys, and my Uncle, met us. They all live in different parts of Florida. I started dinner with a margarita. You could taste the fresh lime juice! For dinner, I got the Palomilla. It's a thin steak, topped… Continue reading Gluten Free in Florida: More Cuban Food, Le Macaron, & One Last Beach Morning
Sunday was still rainy and in the lower 80s/upper 70s outside. Coming from 100+ degrees in Texas, I actually wore my sweatshirt I brought in the morning! Since it wasn't quite ideal for lounging on the beach yet, I decided to head out for a run. I ran along the road next to a park… Continue reading Gluten Free in Florida: Running, Reading, and Vertoris Pizza!
