Spinach + Mushroom Quiche (to go)

Small + Savory

Sometimes, I still go the entire morning without eating breakfast. Drinking coffee can definitely stave your hunger (which is the normal routine for me). It’ll be 1pm, and I’m so hungry I could eat a whole cow. Thankfully, I have found one solution to the lackluster breakfast dilemma. These little nuggets of deliciousness are packed with plenty of fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals to keep you fueled all morning.

Stylish + Affordable Shoe Storage

Narrow Spaces

I went from living in 950 square feet to a meager 504 this past spring. It’s amazing how quickly you can learn how to use every inch of space for storage. Living with narrow spaces and very little square footage makes every inch of floor invaluable.

Gluten-Free Potato Bread

Sweet & Substantial

Pretty impressive, considering this is someone who eats “regular” food, like glutenous and dairy filled foods.

Tedious Tortillas

After attempting way too many tortilla recipes that all claimed to be bendable and easy-to-make, I was close to taking a break from my experimenting.

Real Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread

The Search

Since going gluten and dairy-free, I’ve gone through countless recipes that claimed to be the ultimate sandwich bread. They were not. Not even close! Most of the breads would crumble easily and were way too dense. They also HAD to be toasted, otherwise the bread was inedible. Sometimes there’s no time to toast bread.
