When life gives you lemons, you trade them for coffee. Afterwards, scroll down to the bottom of this post and make my chocolate coffee cupcakes. It should be a basic rule of thumb in our everyday lives, in my opinion. Why not incorporate everyone’s favorite morning drink with everyone’s favorite sweet treat? These cupcakes are basically a match made in heaven.
Mother’s day is coming up, which gave me the perfect opportunity to try and create the perfect dessert that all moms are sure to love! They’re infused with a freshly-brewed coffee flavor, filled with melted chocolate and topped with a generous amount of chocolate-coffee buttercream frosting. I even made it a little bit better by incorporating one of my all-time favorite ingredients ever… coconut oil. What’s not to love? Be sure to treat your moms this weekend with a nice brunch, lots of flowers, and these delicious chocolate coffee cupcakes!

Ever since I posted a picture on Instagram a while ago of my favorite oatmeal recipe, I’ve been eating it almost every day in the mornings. It’s super quick, healthy, and what’s not to love about apples and peanut butter? It’s one of my all-time favorite food combinations, and putting it into my morning oats is absolutely amazing. I was on Pinterest the other day, and I found this snickerdoodle baked oatmeal from The Seasoned Mom. The idea of baking oatmeal and having it for breakfast in little bars is genius. I honestly can’t believe I hadn’t thought of it before… it really never occurred to me to make oatmeal in baked form until now. Thank goodness for Pinterest!

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.
