A Healthier Version of Egg Salad

Sprittibee's Egg Salad

I have always loved egg salad. I used to go in and request it at Jason’s Deli even though it wasn’t on the menu and they would sometimes make it for me, depending on the location. Eggs and I have had a rocky relationship in the past, and I realized after learning more about eating […]

The Very Best Grain-Free, Gluten-Free Paleo Brownies

Almond-Butter Brownies

If you know me, you should know that I am crazy about chocolate. In fact, I eat one of these brownies (or 2-3 of them) per day. They are HEATHER APPROVED. Not only that, but everyone we’ve shared them with asks for the recipe… which is why I’m putting it here. I can now just […]

I say Hello, you say Goodbye! Yes, October is almost over… and I’m just getting around to letting you know I’m alive. But hey – here I am! Better late than never! My list-making obsession is a beast. I would make a list on my arm if I ran out of paper. So to quell […]

Awesome Things About Honey (and Recipes)

Sprittibee's Redbud Tree

Sometimes wonderful things happen on the internet that leave you scratching your head. One of those things this past month has been my fortunate partnership with the National Honey Board. I’ve ALWAYS loved honey. Who doesn’t? I also love bees (as you might have noticed from my blog title and logo all these past 10 […]
