…for my basic babes who don’t really bake. 😉
I’ll be the first to admit that many gluten-free food substitutes–bread, pizza dough, muffins, cookies, etc–can be…less than tasty. My mom, sister, and I are all gluten-sensitive, so I’ve been eating a gluten-light diet since before it was trendy, so I have some first-hand experience in the realm of g-free dining. Instead of suffering through digestive issues OR subpar replacements for my favorite treats, I tend to to just skip them all together. Sometimes, though, a girl wants cake. Sometimes, especially if I’m that girl, she also wants to not have a stomach ache. And obviously it has to taste good! Enter this ridiculously simple and tasty pumpkin spice confection. This gluten-free pumpkin cake requires only a handful of ingredients, minimal prep time, and is stupid easy to make. It tastes good, too, even according to my gluten-loving dad and husband. Want to get your basic on? Read on and learn how to bake this effortless (but excellent!) fall treat. (more…)
You guys. I am so excited for October. Why? Because I’m ready to Tone It Up! On the first of the month, TIU is launching their fall challenge, TIU31…It’s Frisky Fall, reimagined!

She wants structure but flexibility, and she wants to feel confident in herself, her decisions and her body.” Sounds good, right? (more…)
I’ve always found subscription boxes to be quite alluring. I love the idea of getting a surprise gift in the mail–albeit one you’ve given yourself–on a random Wednesday. How fun, right? But…there are SO many options! How do you pick the right box? What if you get junk, or just stuff you can’t use or don’t want? How do you know if it’s “worth it”?! Now I know. When POPSUGAR offered to send me their September Must Have box, I pretty much leapt at the chance to check it out. And let me assure you, guys, the Must Have Box is totally worth it. Don’t believe me? Check out my unboxing and review…and grab a coupon for $5 off your first box below!
