    Colombian Coffee Roasters 100% Colombian Farmer Rafael Herrera, Victory Sales INC, Coffee

    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 […]

    One of my favorite quick + easy breakfast recipes (outside of a green juice) is an açaí bowl.  Not only does it taste delicious, but it also looks great too.. which earns major points in my book.  What I love about açaí bowls, is that like green juice, the possibilities are endless.  Today’s recipe is a […]

  • Taste: Weekend Edition // Grandma Carmichael’s Grits


    Growing up, one of my favorite comfort foods that I will never forget is a nice warm helping of Grandma Carmichael’s grits on a cold winter morning.  Most people I find, make their greats a little creamier, but I prefer the more solid consistency of Carmichael Grits.  I was lucky enough to be able to […]
