I started this blog as a project my senior year of college and continued to use it as an outlet to develop my writing skills and share my latest adventures and recipes. It has since fallen out of use and been replaced by other outlets.

For recipes and writing about Nashville's restaurant scene, visit...

It has been my mission since I was 11 to master the perfect chocolate chip cookie––golden brown on the outside, soft in the middle, buttery with just the right balance of sweet and salt. This recipe may not be "perfect," but after many years of trial and error, I'd say it's pretty near perfect. The...

When my Nana (my mom's mom) was seventeen, she worked at Sears in the credit department in Corpus Christi, Texas. It was her first job. Sweet, little, bity thing that she was (she had a 19" waist), she looked so much like Audrey Hepburn at the time that her boss, Mr. Baldwin, brought his wife in jus...

And I must go." - John Muir

Take me to the mountains. I just got back from the Rockies and every molecule making up my lungs thirsts for mountain air. It's thinner, it's drier, it filters through the bark of evergreens and aspen trees, and it's laced with snow.

I go to Colorado almost every year....

Studies have shown that chocolate boosts your mood, is rich in antioxidants, promotes blood flow to the brain, and releases the same chemicals in your brain as when you are in love. Pair all of that with Kahlúa and these chocolate truffles will have you swearing love at first bite.

This Valentine’s D...

I was blessed to grow up in a house where when Mom said we were having chicken noodle soup, it meant she spent hours simmering chopped onions, celery, and carrots with fresh chicken and amish-made noodles. The whole house smelled like a sea-side feast. The air swirling with the sent of salted broth...

I've been on hiatus for the holidays. It's been a season of Christmas parties, dancing lights, merry festivals, themed sweaters, and baking (lots and lots of baking). In the midst of it all, I visited one of my favorite places in the world. It's a secret too good to keep to myself, so I'm sharing wi...

Everyone has their love story. I fell in love in a window booth in a bar when I was thirteen years old. That bar was the iconic Tootsie's Orchid Lounge. As I sipped Shirley Temple's, sitting next to my dad, listening to music that seemed to flow through my veins, I realized I wanted to spend the res...

Several weeks ago I missed the final Waterfall Wednesday of August when I came down with a serious cold. I said I owed you one, and here it is! This week's Waterfall Wednesday is brought to you by The Girls; my nana, my mom, and me!

The Girls have been a three-generation, traveling tr...

There is something about October that I have always found enchanting. I think it has something to do with the trees bursting forth in brilliant color. The hills look as though they have caught fire and hold that alluring glow like slow burning embers. The air smells like cinnamon and crushed leaves....

On any given Wednesday night, my apartment is full of college students. All evening long the front door seems to be revolving as car loads of new and old friends, who feel more and more like family, come piling in to be welcomed with my catch phrase, "Welcome home!" Having recently graduated college...

Red velvet cake is essentially chocolate cake with a whole lot of red food coloring, right? Well, not how my Aunt Linda makes it! 

I was never a fan of red velvet cake until I tasted these. I whipped up a batch for my friend Whitney's birthday this week and they were so popular, I thought I'd share t...

 Sometimes adventurers get sick. . .

This past weekend I was all set to explore Greeter Falls. I had my cooler set, my swimsuit ready, my beach towel folded by the door, and the farthest back row of seats in my car flipped up so I could cram as many friends in my car as possible. I had my check list...

One of my absolute favorite adventures in Tennessee is Cummins Falls! It's a difficult hike, very steep and sometimes muddy, but every second of it is pretty gorgeous. Once you make the decline into the gorge, every step along the path to the falls leads you right along (and sometimes through) the w...

About this time last year, my favorite adventure buddy, Jessie (she's also a killer personal trainer), and I set out for a little adventure. We hadn't seen each other all summer and were long overdo for a waterfall trip. After scanning Instagram for hours, trying to decide where to go, we decided on...
