 Hi, my name’s Kara and I enjoy long, romantic walks along the beach Farmer’s Market.

Okay, so I’ve never had a dating profile (and never will), but if I did.. I’m pretty sure that’s what my intro would say. (Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the beach too.. but living in Ohio means that the farmer’s market makes for a weeee more feasible of a date night – or date morning)

I’ll be honest – I didn’t discover the beauty of farmer’s markets until about 5 years ago (which is a real shame seeing as I grew up about 15 minutes from one of the best public markets in the country), but you better believe I’m making up for it now!

Kyle and I have recently made it a habit to start every Saturday morning with a visit to the local farmers market. And let me tell you, I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to start the weekend. Something about slowly strolling along the sidewalks, talking with the vendors, and sampling local goodies just makes my heart happy. (more…)

First off, thank you to everyone who read, commented, or shared my last post on IBS. I’m not usually one for talking about my feelings, so writing such a personal blog post was definitely not an easy task. But this is a topic that I’m extremely passionate about and believe needs to be spoken about more openly, so it was worth it. I just hope you know how much all of your support means to me!

  

Now, back to the food…

Have you ever found yourself so distracted by the thought of a recipe that you just NEED to make it in order to ever have hopes of focusing on anything else ever again?

No? Just me? Okay.

Well anyways, that’s how this beautiful creation came to be.

Earlier this week, I was just sitting around minding my own business and working on my thesis project, when out of the blue… BAM. Mimosa Poached Salmon Salad.

If this recipe sounds slightly familiar to you, it’s probably because I raved about it when I posted it on Instagram back in October SEPTEMBER (yikes, I didn’t realize it was that long ago!). At the time, I promised that I would share the recipe on the blog in the next few weeks and, well, I think you know where this is going… (more…)

I say “big game” in quotations because, if we’re being honest, I really don’t care for either of the teams playing. In fact, it’s rare that I have much of a preference one Super Bowl team over another. Let’s just say that being from Upstate New York and living in Ohio doesn’t leave a whole lot to root for come NFL playoff time…
