favor-"ette": sweet "potatoes"

March 13th, 2013

Well I know the month is only half over but I’m going to say that these are officially my favorite “favor-ette” of March! I mean, just look at them! I saw these in Martha Stewart last year and filed them away for this St. Patrick’s Day. I was convinced, however, that they would never make […]

a sugar recap (and why I'm NOT going gluten-free)

March 2nd, 2013

Let’s start with sugar. This was in many ways much harder to give up than dairy – simply put, I missed my sugar! That said, it wasn’t nearly as hard  as I thought it would be (I know, it was only a month. And, okay, this happened). And though I didn’t notice any changes health-wise, it […]
