My latest obsession is baking skillet cookies. Baking will never be easier than this. Mix up a batch of delicious batter, spread in a skillet, and BAM, 25 minutes later, you’ve got one amazing cookie that can serve 8 people. Or 2.

I’ve gotten distracted with kale salad, corn salsa, and quinoa-sweet potato salad which is a good thing considering they’re 100x healthier than today’s weakness. This cake is amazing and has an impressive number of…
Spending time outdoors is easy for me – I love photographing scenery, going on walks, hiking to vistas, and feeling the sun on my face. However, not everyone enjoys being outside whether it’s because they hate insects, can’t monitor the temperature or because they find it boring. So I’m bringing you today 5 tips to…
