Hyman’s Seafood

After a long morning of wandering around the streets of historic downtown Charleston in the humidity and sun, there is nothing better than escaping to a cool brick building off of Meeting Street for our last seafood meal of the trip.  Charleston is home to so many great places to eat. Having a delay of…

Peach "Nice"cream

You may have seen this blog post a few months ago, and luckily I’ve made so many more since then! My favorite flavor of this dairy free-ice cream at the moment, is peach! Nice-cream is probably one of the easiest things you can make, and this summer I’ve been obsessed with peaches. All you need…

5 benefits of an online class

It’s summer. Do we really need to talk about school? For me, I really had a great trip (more posts are still coming) in the beginning of June. Immediately after I had gotten home, I was diving head first into an online math class. Gross, I know. Honestly, math has never been my best subject, or even my “i’m just…

Balloons and Fireworks

One great thing about summer, besides the weather, is that there seems to be so much more to do. At least, for me anyway, I’m definitely a warm weather person and would rather be sweating than freezing any day. One of the activities that I attended last, was held in my hometown. It’s a festival…

Savory and Spicy Chickpeas

It’s finally summer. Which means I’m home from University and creating new dishes and enjoying loads of time outside! Eating salads is one of my favorite things, but having salad two meals in a row just isn’t my style, and thus I came up with this dish!  A vegan chickpea dish with spices and veggies…

Celebrating the Future

Milestones. We all have them throughout our life. We get our first tooth, ride our first bike, have our first birthday party with friends. While I have already hit milestones of getting my driver’s license,getting into college and turning the big Twenty-One last year, there are still many more to come. When Paperless Post approached…

River Escape

Summer has gone by so quickly, as usual. Lately I’ve been busy with work..and lots of it! I finished up my online math class awhile ago, which was a big weight off of my shoulders, then I was thrown into a whirlwind of 40 plus hours a week-work weeks. Honestly, I’m exhausted, it doesn’t help…

Strawberry Pecan Crisp

  What are some of the first foods that you think of when you think of Summer?  For me, I think of fruits. Mostly Strawberries, Peaches, Watermelon, Blueberries…etc. Which is why I spent some time finding the frozen strawberries in the freezer and stirring up a nice warm, fruit-filled, crisp. Here’s what you’ll need: Filling…

Summer Nights

It’s the first of August already? What?!  This Summer (like all summers) is going by so quickly! I decided while I had a bit of time to show off my newest JawBreaking purchase as well as a new plaid jacket I bought from a secondhand store! You can find the shirt at this link right…
