sip on this

While you’re sipping on your morning cup o’ joe, tea, hot cocoa, smoothie, OJ, water, prune juice, or what have you, here are some things to check out.

1] This vegan recipe for apples with salty caramel from V.K. Rees Photography, looks 100% devour-able.  Medjool dates are magical.

7] Two blogs I can’t get enough of: My New Roots + Roost

8] Remember my friend Heather, from this post??  She had her twin boys and everyone is healthy, happy, and most likely extremely tired. 


9] And in case you need something to sip on, try this!  It’s my go-to nighttime beverage.  Well, it’s either this or wine.

If I don’t make my own, this is my almond milk of choice.

Local, raw honey is where it’s at.

If you know what’s good for you, you’ll stay outta’ my jar!

Seriously.  Raw, unfiltered, honey is good stuff. 

If you live by an Ikea, or know someone who does, you should own this frother.  It works like a charm and costs $2.99.  I use it almost every single day.

Hot Cocoa

  • 1c milk of choice
  • 1.5T unsweetened cooca powder
  • 1t raw honey
  1. Heat the milk until simmering.
  2. Whisk or froth in the cocoa powder + honey.


I like mine super chocolaty and slightly sweet.  Adjust as desired.

10] Goodnight!
