Gingerbread Maple Chocolate Chip Muffins

Gingerbread Maple Chocolate Chip Muffins

Hellooooo from the muffin (wo)man! (yes, I know I used that joke a few weeks ago. and yes, I’m still laughing about it)   Really though. I’m not joking when I tell you that I’ve been churning out muffins like it’s nobody’s business lately. I mean, we’ve basically been eating our way through 2016, one muffin at a time. Luckily, that doesn’t seem to be a problem in the Bartash household (phew)! So I must have pinned these particular muffins sometime last year…

Life Lately {Winter 2016 Edition}

Hi…. uh, is this thing on? * taps mic * Hi friends, remember me!? Let me remind you: long, long ago in a faraway place, I used to cook and bake yummy things, take pictures and then ramble on for thousands of nonsensical words until your brain melted out of your ears share them with you in my littler corner of the interwebs. I know, I know – it’s been awhile. I mean, I hope you understand! We’ve had quite a busy…

Zucchini Brownies

Zucchini Brownies

I’m too tired to be clever or witty today. Seriously guys, I’m so drained that I can barely string a cohesive sentence together – in real life or in writing. I mean, it just took me three attempts to type that last sentence so it actually made sense. Does any of this even make ANY sense at all?! Case aaaaand point. Life: 1, Talia: 0 However! I really want to share a delicious recipe with you. Like reeeeeally really, because I just know that you’re…

Life Lately {Winter 2015 Edition}

I miiiiiight not have been kidding when I said that 2015 was going to be the busiest year of all time. In fact, this perfectly depicts how I’m handling life right now: Between work, family, friends, tending to my husband-to-be, wedding planning, MOH duties, upcoming wedding festivities for a few other friends, the 21 Day Fix and the usual insanity of life, approximately 140% of my time is booked through the end of 2015. Waaaaait a second. Have I failed to mention…

Blood Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

Blood Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

You guuuuuys. Two words: blood oranges. #cantstopwontstop Seriously though. That time I went through 6 pounds of blood oranges in a weekend? I think I have an addiction. An addiction TO VITAMIN C, SUCKAHS. Seeeriously seriously though? I think I’ve lost all of my marbles. Like, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone found me a corner, rocking back and forth, whimpering about the MBTA recovery schedule and covered head to toe in blood orange juice sometime in the near future….

Blood Orange & Bourbon Cocktail

Blood Orange & Bourbon Cocktail

Soooo my vitamin C intake has skyrocketed over the past week or so. Yup, pretty sure I’ve been averaging 4000% of the suggested daily intake. What’s my secret, you ask? Oh you know, the usual – gallons of OJ and grapefruit juice, guava-kiwi smoothies, and red pepper slices by the handful. …just kidding! I mean, as tasty as all of those things sound and as good-for-you as they may be, I’ve opted to take a slightly different route… Blood oranges…

Stitch Fix: Numero Dos

Stitch Fix: Numero Dos

The delay in my life is approaching unreal proportions. For example (okay, a few examples): I have over a thousand photos from our trip to France back in OCTOBER that I’ve barely glanced through, let alone edited and shared. I have Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes that I’ve been dying to post for you guys, which I’ll probably have to re-make, photograph and share next JULY. I also have a host of recipes I worked on last summer (you know, when I had a little more…

Quinoa Almond Pancakes

Quinoa Almond Pancakes

I don’t know about you guys, but I love breakfast. (apparently I also love instagramming my breakfast…) And I’m not just talking love, love. I LOVE, love breakfast. In fact, I’ve been known to have not one, but two –  sometimes even three! – breakfasts in a day. First breakfast, second breakfast, third breakfast, breakfast for dinner.. I eat like a hobbit. Is that weird?! But really, the better question is: how many more times can I use the work breakfast…

Celebrating 2014 & Welcoming 2015

Happy 2015, friends! A lot has happened between October 5 and now, as I’m sure you have learned via facebook stalking can imagine. I have SO many pictures to show you guys from our trip! I’m hoping that I’ll find some time in 2015 to go through all 1100+ photos (nope, not an exaggeration) and select a bunch to share with you. I’m even putting together a few blog posts’ worth of our travels – itinerary, sights, sounds, tastes, stories. Anything specific…

France bound!

France bound!

Work has officially taken over my life. Yeaaaa that’s how the last month of my life has been. However, here’s an important fact: it’s not been in the “I just sat in 2 hours worth of traffic to get to a job that I loath, where I’ll sit for the next 12+ hours, unappreciated and constantly bombarded with questions and demands and accusations, all the while dreaming of gauging my eyeballs out with the nearest pencil.. until I finally drive…
