"Candy Heart Cupcakes" via Hummingbird High Whether you're celebrating a romantic Valentine's Day with your significant other, or having a Galentine's soiree with your girlfriends, it's always nice to show up with a little something in hand. Finding the perfect Valentine's Day gift can be a challenge, but you'll be hard pressed to find somebody who doesn't enjoy a sweet treat (especially one that's homemade), so baking is generally a sure-fire way to spread the love. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought I'd share some festive recipe ideas in case you're looking for some last minute inspiration: "Rosey Rocky Road"...

Can you believe Christmas is less than six days away? Somehow it always seems to sneak up on you, whether you're ready or not. In typical fashion, I'm running around shopping for last minute gifts, wrapping presents, shipping things off at the post office and packing for a trip to New York and Miami where I'll be spending the holidays with my family. If you're anything like me and can use a last minute gift idea, or maybe just a new cookie recipe for Santa, then this post is for you. These gingersnap cookies have been a holiday tradition...

One of my favorite things to do when the weekend rolls around is to head to my nearest juice shop for a fresh green juice and an acai bowl (my favorite is this one). I'm well aware of how cliche that sounds coming from an LA resident, but there's just something about starting your morning off with a nutritious breakfast that sets the tone for a productive day. I often recreate my favorite green juice at home with my NutriBullet, but I never considered attempting my beloved acai bowls. To be honest, I wasn't even sure where one could buy acai. Was...
