  • Baby Foodies | Nibble+Squeak

    Nibble+Squeak, RIDER

    I’m a self-proclaimed foodie + so far my son is following in my footsteps.  How many eight month old babies can say they’ve tried a tasting menu from a James Beard Award-Winning chef?  My little guy can! Last friday, Jayden + I attended our first Nibble+Squeak event, along with three of our mama+baby friends. Nibble+Squeak is […]

    While I’m not a huge coffee drinker, I did come to appreciate its charm while in Italy last fall.  On the other hand, my husband is one of those people who needs a cup of coffee in the morning + even though he’s a very calm guy naturally, having a conversation with him before his coffee is […]

    Fruit Cobb Salad with Avocado Dill Dressing

    I know it’s been a while, since I’ve posted a good food post on the blog, but I promise I’ve been eating.   It’s just that while pregnant, I’ve been eating a lot of the same things (blame it on cravings), eating out (blame it on being tired) or my husband has been cooking dinner […]

  • Homemade Strawberry Pop-Tart Recipe

    Growing up, pop-tarts was one of my favorite breakfast treats. Actually, I take that back, it was one of my favorite snacks.  I loved the strawberry and brown sugar cinnamon the best.  But, let’s face it – they’re not the most nutritious.  And even though I still sneak them in from time to time, there […]

    This post is sponsored but Kellogg’s via Mode Media. When it comes to last-minute entertaining at home, I like to keep it as simple as possible.  I tend to stress out very easily (something I’m working on), so the easier it is to pull everything together, the better for me.  Now, don’t get me wrong, […]

    Looking back at all of the post on sage+sparkle for 2014 was such a treat.  One of the best things about having a blog, is being able to have a place where I can visit whenever I like + relive some pretty great moments. So many amazing things have happened around here this year, which is why I’ve […]

    As the holiday season comes to an end, we still have one last chance to celebrate. Is it just me, or is NYE one of those holidays that never lives up to the hype?  Unless, of course you’re traveling – traveling is always a good idea. Two years ago, we rang in the new year […]

    I have been so bad this year with my “12 Weeks of Pumpkin” but I promise, it has been for good reason – life has been moving at such a fast past lately that it has been hard to keep up, much less, slow down to make a recipe or two before sunset.  However, you […]
