Sunday brunch is my favorite weekend tradition. Whether we’re at home or traveling, Sam and I take our Sunday Funday very seriously. My favorite brunch indulgence is lemon ricotta pancakes paired with a healthy fruit smoothie. Sam loves breakfast tacos and waffles.  Together we end up with way too much food and have to invite friends to join in on our feast. Below I’ve linked a few of my favorite recipes to make for brunch.

Acai Berry Smoothies 

Ricotta Pancakes – I add lemon zest and blueberries to this recipe.

Breakfast Tacos

Homemade Waffles – The perfect recipe to use as a  jumping off point.

Hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday!

After our snowy trip to Sundance I’ve been craving a taste of summer. It’s clementine season so I picked some up from the market and made some clementine fizzes while planning our new tropical adventure.

Ingredients :

3 clementines

1 teaspoon honey

1 bottle dry white wine

1 bottle sparkling water

Makes 4

Directions :

Put a drop of honey and juice a half a clementine in each glass. Mix well until honey dissolves. Add  white wine, about 6 oz per glass, and top with sparkling water. Garnish with a clementine slice. Enjoy while pretending you’re on a sunny beach.


Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend. Today I’m sharing a curated selection of my favorite pieces, gifts, and baubles still on sale. There’s everything from holiday dresses and cozy sweaters, to gifts for your hubby or wifey.

ACAI_BOWL_SMOOTHIE-1Sam and I recently started making our own Açai bowls. They’re super easy and make a great breakfast or a healthy alternative for dessert.


4 tbsp Açai powder

1 bag frozen strawberries

4 tbsp honey

1 cup blueberries

2 cups almond milk

(for toppings)

bee pollen



dehydrated pineapple

Makes 4 servings


Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add almond milk as necessary for consistency. Assemble by putting fresh blueberries and bee pole in the bottom of the jar. Add Açai mixture to jar then garnish with blueberries, bee pollen, raspberries, and dehydrated pineapple.


SUNDAY BITES QUINOA-3One of my new favorite recipes is this quinoa salad with an herb trio dressing, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach. It’s light, healthy and super easy to make. Enjoy and happy Sunday.


2 cups cooked quinoa

1/2 cup packed sun-dried tomatoes

 1 cup chopped basil

1/2 cup chopped mint

1/2 cup chopped parsley

1 garlic clove

1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

1 cup baby spinach


Using a food processor blend the 3 herbs, olive oil, lime juice, and garlic until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Drain excess oil out of your sun-dried tomatoes by letting them sit in a small strainer over a bowl. Roughly chop the spinach into long ribbons. Combine quinoa, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach in a large bowl and add the desired amount of herb dressing. Garnish with fresh basil and serve cold.
