Classic Vanilla Ice Cream

I have been begging on my knees for an ice cream maker for the longest time… almost begging-on-my-knees pleading for one, especially since warmer weather days are not far ahead of us! You can imagine my excitement when this Cuisinart 20-Quart Ice Cream Maker arrived in my mail last Saturday. I immediately took this out and started experimenting recipes with it.

Obviously, the first flavor I set out to try was a classic vanilla ice cream, which is a must-have for everybody. Not only is it delicious, it’s a base recipe that you can add so many different flavors to (chocolate, strawberry, peanut butter, etc.). The possibilities are endless! I know that there are a ton of vanilla ice cream recipes out there, but I really just wanted to share my own.

Colorado/New Mexico Food Guide! – Spring Break finds

I just got back from my trip to Colorado this morning at about 2 o’clock, and I’m completely exhausted. Honestly, I’d get some rest, but I’m just too excited to share what I ate on my trip with y’all! We drove up to Colorado to go ski at Wolf Creek, and passed by New Mexico to and from Colorado. I got so many good photos and ate so much good food, so this is going to be a rather long post. I hope y’all will find this food guide helpful! xx

1. Whole Food’s (Santa Fe, NM)

On our way to Colorado, we stopped by Santa Fe (which is, by the way, the cutest little town ever!). We drove around until we stumbled upon this adorable adobe-style Whole Food’s Market! I was so hungry, and I was so happy that we’d found a place that felt kind of like home (because Whole Foods is basically my second home). I ordered a roasted asparagus tomato parmesan sandwich, with some roasted veggies and sweet potato fries! If any of y’all are planning to pass by Santa Fe, and you’re not sure where to eat, Whole Foods is always a great option.

Road Trip Essentials

There’s nothing better than knowing it’s Sunday, and that there’s no school on Monday (at least for me). Also, there’s nothing that I love more than a good road trip. Even though it can get a little boring at some points, the scenic views are absolutely gorgeous. Road tripping is probably one of my favorite ways to travel, so I thought I’d share some things that are essential on a long drive.

Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

Happy Tuesday! I’m so excited because we’re in the last couple days until spring break arrives, and I could not happier that the warmer weather is on it’s way (also, I’m just glad I’ll have a break from school!) Also, y’all can probably tell I’ve been loving blueberries lately, even though they’re not in season, and I’ve been putting them in almost everything I’ve been making.

Smoothies are honestly life savers. I can just pop the ingredients in my NutriBullet and put the container in the fridge, and it’ll be ready for the next day. Or I’ll just save it for when I come home from school and I’ll have a nice, refreshing drink for me to sip on while I watch Netflix (I’ve been loving Grey’s Anatomy) or do my homework.

This one that I’ve thrown together for y’all today is super adjustable – you could substitute coconut milk for any other liquid (orange juice, almond milk, regular milk, etc.), or replace the strawberries with frozen bananas.

I hope y’all enjoy this recipe!

Blueberry Muffins

I’ve been obsessing over blueberries lately. I’ve been having them as a snack almost every day this week! I love having something nice, fresh, and sweet in the fridge to look forward to when I get home from school. I usually pre-wash them a day in advance or in the morning if I have time, and they’re ready to go! Sometimes I’ll try and bring them to school but I’ll end up eating them all in the car.

Today, I decided to make some blueberry muffins! These are so cute and I’m drooling as I’m writing this post right now! I only have a couple more in the pantry, and I’m pretty sure they won’t last long. These cuties are fluffy, super easy to throw together, and full of delicious blueberry goodness!

(P.S. I’m also playing around with photoshop, so hopefully my pictures look okay! I’m still learning a lot but I feel like my image quality is getting a lot better.)
