Chocolate Almond Banana Smoothie Recipe
I have not been feeling myself lately. I definitely haven’t been looking like myself lately. I had major back problems in 2014 and I only recently found a doctor who could fix the problem.

The first stop for my holiday shopping? Uncommon Goods. (Is it wrong that I got myself a gift?)
You guys know that I like wine, right? I might have mentioned that a time or two five. I even managed to use all the wine…. even the corks and the bottles. If I were a hunter, you could say that nothing goes to waste… I have a lot of friends who love wine […]

Wine signals the end of my work day and the beginning of my (hopefully) relaxing evening. Wine signals […]

I promise that this tastes really good! I have a Green Smoothie recipe that I like, but I wanted a new one, so I played around and came up with this Chocolate Mint Spinach Smoothie recipe. It isn’t a prefect replica, but it has enough minty-chocolate taste that I feel like I got a little […]
Make a spooky sangria with Turning Leaf Refresh wines.
Fall. Crisp, cool, and still a good time for a refreshing beverage. I tried Turning Leaf Refresh wines over the summer and they were quite good. I don’t typically enjoy sparkling (or sweet) wines but these were a nice surprise. I was pleasantly surprised by the Crisp White blend. It was not too sweet, and […]
