• Bacon-Herb Cauliflower Biscuits with Sweet Onion Gravy

    Paleo, grain-free, clean eating cauliflower "biscuits" with sweet onion gravy

    I’m really excited to share this recipe with you all – as my love (read: obsession) for delicious meals secretly made from cauliflower continues. Is there anything you can’t make with cauliflower? If there is, I don’t really want to make it. Last week I shared my recipe for the perfect Cauliflower Alfredo sauce – and everyone seemed to absolutely love it. So why change what works? Another cauliflower recipe has arrived. In fact, I’m now changing my blog’s name to “The Chic Cauliflower.”  Read More

  • Fresh Tangerine Stackable Rings Giveaway

    Are you read to meet your new favorite jewelry shop? Prepare yourself – because it’s about to get real good.

    I actually discovered Fresh Tangerine through an unlikely source – my  boyfriend – after he gifted me their wonderful gold Ampersand Ring on my birthday. It’s playful and pairs perfectly with the majority of my current jewelry. I’ve recommended them to so many friends (and boyfriends of friends looking for good gift ideas!) – and now own a few different Fresh Tangerine pieces.

    Fresh Tangerine makes all their jewelry by hand – which is impressive, seeing as their jewelry is so dainty and detailed. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had secretly had cute little elves making their adorable rings, bracelets and necklaces, adding the finishing (tiny) touches like mini-lightening-bolts and gold hearts.

  • Herbes De Provence & Orange Blossom Sea-Salt Scrub – The perfect last-minute gift!

    IMG_0081It’s almost Christmas, everyone. And if you’re like me, there are still a few people on your gift list who you haven’t checked off yet. This easy, DIY floral sea-salt scrub is the perfect, last-minute gift that is both thoughtful and fabulous. Who doesn’t want to scrub away their stress while breathing in aromas of lavender, sweet almond oil and orange blossom water? You might want to make an extra jar, for yourself :)

    I got the original body scrub recipe from the Fruetcake Blog – and I just altered a few things to make it my own. Most of the ingredients are available at your neighborhood grocery store – and if you have a Whole Foods or similar market around, they will definitely have all the things! See below for my recipe for Herbes De Provence & Orange Blossom Sea Salt Scrub!


    Herbs De Provence & Orange Blossom Sea-Salt Scrub (adapted from Fruetcake’s recipe)
    3 Cup Course Sea salt (you can regular sea salt if you desire a finer texture)
    1 ½ Cup Sweet Almond Oil
    16 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
    10 Drops Orange Blossom Water (usually in the fancy bartending aisle)
    3 Tbsp. Herbs de Provence
    6 Small Weck Jars

    1. In a bowl mix sea salt, oil, lavender and orange blossom water until well combined.
    2. Add Herbs de Provence and mix well.
    3. Spoon mixture into Weck jars. Sea salt scrub will last about 1 month in the bath/shower – label it with an expiration date.
