I've been dying to get my hands on Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookbook It's All Good. The book features many gluten-free and vegan recipes that actually sound appetizing. Still haven't ordered it but I found this recipe from the book and made these bad boys. Now I'm really dying to purchase it! Try this one out and tell me what you think. I'll bet you go buy the book before I get the chance to!

Recipe after the jump.

backyard camping.

camping charlie breakfast

this weekend we gave a go at camping.. in our backyard. backyard camping has to be one of the better versions of camping. better because when a thunderstorm hits at 3 am and your tent starts taking on water, you can head inside your dry house for cover. also, you and friends can gather in your kitchen the next morning to drink coffee and eat crepes. yep. it's good stuff.


spring, is that you?

the weather here in the midwest has been crazy. it snowed last week. apparently it's the first time  it has snowed in may in 60 years or something crazy like that.  then the weather was beautiful. i think spring has finally come... and i welcome her with open arms. 

last weekend i finally graduated from college.
this weekend i will celebrate my 23rd birthday. 
this weather couldn't have come at a more perfect time.
