Nut butter lovers this is something you’ll need to try. Story time or how I fell in love with nut butter Let’s take a trip down memory lane back to the year 2007. Little Julia went to the US for the first time for a student exchange. And not only did she fall in love with the country but she also discovered the love of her life: peanut butter! I don’t know just how many PB&J sandwiches I had in my three weeks in California but it were A LOT! So ever since then I’ve been obsessing over peanut butter. […]

I had my cousin over to visit me last weekend and while I got up at 6am on Saturday to get some work done she was still sleeping by 10am when I was done with my work. The perks of being a teenager!

I mean come on I used to spend a year in Massachusetts the home of Dunkin’ Donuts so I basically lived off of these sugar loaded treats.

I have never made donuts myself though up until about two years ago. Back then I bought myself a donut mold so […]

Let’s face it. The time for nice cream and smoothie bowls is over. That doesn’t mean I’m still craving and having these two things but not as regularly as I used to anymore. But what I’m still craving this creamy texture with lots of added toppings a lot so I came up with a dish that is perfect for fall but still has a yummy, creamy texture like a thick smoothie bowl would. You can even say it is a smoothie bowl if you want to. It’s a sweet potato cream and I came up with it because I had […]
