Most of my mornings revolve around flipping eggs while simultaneously sweating my ass off in our kitchen at Black Dolphin Inn. So by the time I’m home, the idea of sweating even more over lunch is a major no-go. That’s why I always try to make something that’s fresh, flavorful, exciting, and well, something doesn’t involve a lot of added heat.

When I was whipping up some lunch for Jerm and I the other day, I wanted to make something that was similar to a BLT but a little bit more extra. Insert these beautiful babes. Toasty sourdough, creamy burrata and bright tomato jam pair with fresh leaves of butter lettuce, fragrant basil and crispy bacon. Add a little maldon salt and a few pinches of red pepper flakes and you’ve got a perfect summertime dish that is good anytime of year. Continue reading

Infused Brown Butter Churro Rice Krispies Treats with Dulce de Leche

A quick dusting of cinnamon sugar adds so much flavor to these childhood treats and when you use infused cannabutter, well, then I can guarantee that the adults-only version is even better!

As I got older and got on birth control, the intensity subsided, but that’s not to say that they don’t still suck. They still happen and I still have to deal with dull aching pain and the low mood that comes along with it which is no fun at all and quite debilitating at times. Continue reading

This past Monday I celebrated my 32nd birthday at one of my new favorite places in Florida – Rock Springs at Kelly Park! This tropical, natural oasis is located in Apopka, just one hour away from where we live in New Smyrna Beach, which makes it a super quick and easy day trip. But since i’m a hopeless procrastinator that waits until the last minute to look at trip advisor reviews, I didn’t know that the park fills up to capacity about an hour after it opens… Whoops.

And since we decided to go to this park pretty spontaneously, we were nowhere near prepared for the next morning. But luckily, we had some tricks up our sleeves to help things go a little faster so we could get there before they stopped letting people in.  Continue reading
