GOOD MORNING! Did you happen to notice that CNC is looking a little different this morning? My buddy Blain (remember him from my HSPH days?) gave her a much-needed facelift (it had been 3 years!), and I am so incredibly happy with how everything turned out. It’s by far my favorite design yet. (Curious to see what CNC looked like over the years? Check out this post. She’s changed quite a bit!) My weekend was awesome….

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was quite busy, but a whole lot of fun. Here’s a quick recap! I enjoyed a couple of cookie bites from Whole Foods, which were chocolate chip cookie shells filled with frosting. Amazing! I went to a clothing swap. So fun! And, of course, I went home with mostly workout clothes. Haha! I ate Buffalo Chicken Chili with blue cheese crumbles. Holy yum! Quinn wished Grandma a “happy…

Hi, friends! Happy, happy, happy Monday to you! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Here’s a quick little recap of mine”¦             Left to right starting at the top: Kettlebells 4 Kids. The WOD was a lot of fun (and surprisingly challenging for just 8 minutes) and we got sweaty for a good cause! Glazed donut. Mal and Q took a ride to Dunkin Donuts while I was WOD-ing on Saturday morning…

Hi, friends! How was your 4th of July weekend? Mine was really nice. Mal, Q, Murphy, and I spent it at my in-law’s house, so there was lots of quality family time and plenty of fun. And, of course, all sorts of delicious eats! The Hauperts do it right when it comes to food! FRIDAY My in-laws hosted a family get-together on Friday afternoon for the 4th. There was so much delicious food! My plate + an…

Good morning and happy Sunday! Pancakes were on the menu for breakfast this morning, so Mal made his special recipe for the lightest, fluffiest, and most cake-like pancakes ever. He’s been making this recipe for years and it’s one of our very favorites. It’s super easy, totally delicious, and always turns out well. Definitely keep this recipe in mind for your next pancake breakfast! Ingredients: 1 cup 365 Organic Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix (or Bisquick) 2/3…

Good morning, friends! How was your weekend? So, on my final night with the Ben & Jerry’s team, everyone went around the table at dinner and shared their high point, low point, and high point (gotta end on a high note!) from their experience in Vermont. I loved this idea so much, I decided to use it for my post this morning. Here are my high, low, high (x 2) for the weekend! This photo/cuddling…

If you’ve read Carrots ”˜N’ Cake for any length of time, you know that I love pancakes, like love them. When I make them at home, I mostly stick to healthy versions because they fill me up and satisfy me much better than traditional recipes. That said, this recipe for Maple-Cinnamon Sweet Potato Pancakes is another one that I plan to add to my regular pancake rotation. Made with nutrient-rich sweet potato and satisfying almond flour and eggs,…

Hi, guys! How was your weekend? Mine was great. Nothing too exciting to report, but it was definitely a nice couple of days. Friday night Friday evening was relaxed and low-key. Mal and I went to CrossFit and then grabbed dinner from Whole Foods on the way home. I went with some California rolls (major sushi craving) and then cooked up some sweet potato tots from Trader Joe’s once I got home. Mal hit up…

Good morning! Happy Sunday, friends! I am just popping in to share a delicious pancake recipe with you that Mal and I thoroughly enjoyed for breakfast this morning. Seriously, it was heavenly: Gluten-free Pancakes with Honey-Almond Butter. OMG, yum. My inspiration for the honey-almond butter actually came from B. Matthew’s Eatery in Savannah. The restaurant serves their freshly baked bread with the most amazing honey-almond butter, and I just had to recreate it at home….

Good morning! Happy Monday! Some random tidbits for the morning: FREE CANDY!

Hi, friends! I just wanted to do a little recap of our 24 Days of Togetherness so far since I haven’t blogged about it everyday, but want to remember our experience! December 1: Bake sugar cookies December 2: Give each other 10-minute massages December 3: Dress Murphy in holiday garb and snap a photo of him December 4: Get Lime Leaf for dinner December 5: Listen to “A Christmas Together” (John Denver & The Muppets) December…

Mal and Murphy gave me a wonderful welcome home from Florida! It involved a delicious dinner from Lime Leaf and watching a movie together last night. Unfortunately, I fell asleep on the couch around 7:00 PM, so I didn’t watch very much of the movie. I actually ended up sleeping for 14 hours last night, which is probably the longest I have ever slept in my adult life. (Doesn’t it kind of look like I’m…

Yesterday morning, I woke up to the sound of sizzling bacon. Ooh, yes. My wonderful and amazing husband was in the kitchen cooking us breakfast. Yay! On the weekends, I’m usually the one who gets up first and starts making breakfast. Mal wanted to switch things up, so as soon as he saw me walk into the kitchen, he “banished” me back to the bedroom. He was a little upset that I ruined his surprise,…

Heyyyyyyy! Happy weekend, friends! I slept for almost 12 hours last night, which is both insane and awesome, so I woke up bright and early this morning and ready to start the day. Carpe diem! Breakfast I was really hungry when I woke up, so I immediately headed to the kitchen to make breakfast, but, unfortunately, we didn’t really have any food in the house. (I’m pretty sure Mal ate a lot of take-out when…

Good morning and happy, happy, happy Sunday to you! This morning, I finally created a delicious batch of gluten-free and egg-free pancakes. I know this might not sound terribly exciting to you, but I’ve actually tried for weeks to come up with a tasty recipe and haven’t had much luck. I tried the whole chia egg thing and played around in the kitchen a lot, but I’d only end up with things similar to pancakes,…
