Life Update: October 2017

Well hello! Long time, no posts haha. Life has been crazy. And the blog has definitely been put on the back burner (and turned way down low). But, right now I'm not in the mood to do my American Heritage homework (please no), and I really want to update you all because....

Garden Zucchini Soup

My favorite season is here! Harvest Season! I love when everything in the garden is ready to pick and eat! Especially the tomatoes and zucchini. Lately our family has been struggling to keep up with the amount of zucchini being produced in our small patch. My mom has resorted to throwing them in our neighbors cars as they pass by haha! So if you live close I should warn you, do not stop and talk to my mom if she's standing by the road with her hands held behind her back, hiding something ;)

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

These chicken enchiladas are definitely a family favorite! Last fall we ate them every thursday for a couple months. This recipe comes from a family friend, but sometimes we change it up. We also love to use our pressure cooker (Instant Pot) to cook the chicken because it cuts the prep time significantly!

Italian Seasoning Bread

Throw back to Winter semester 2016-17. I had a night class on Tuesdays that literally almost killed me every week. I HATE night classes lol. Especially when they are 3 hours long about how to teach people haha! But, turns out the class actually paid off, why? Because my teacher would bring this lovely bread to class randomly and it would make my day 100x better hah! This bread is so delicious, you won't believe it!

The Best 4 Ingredient Protein Shake

HELLO! Wow it has been WAY too long! Like seriously Gretta, your last post was in MAY! What have you been doing?! Yeah good question hah! Let's just say that this past spring semester was the most insane thing I have ever done, not to mention I also decided to run my first marathon in the middle of it. Thank goodness that is over (both the semester and the marathon lol).

Peanut Butter Button Cookie Cups

These Peanut Butter Button Cookie Cups are a favorite in our family, especially in Lake Powell! We make a big batch of these cookies every year and then freeze them for our annual trip with the fam. They are always a hit! A chewy peanut butter cookie with a sweet chocolaty center, what could be better?!

Fruit Parfaits with Homemade Maple Syrup Granola

Life has been absolutely crazy for the past couple weeks! And because of that I haven't posted since EASTER! WHAT! Yeah, I know terrible. But sadly I don't think it will slow down for a while. I just finished Winter semester at BYU. It was a very hectic semester but luckily I passed all of my class haha! Now I start spring term on Tuesday, which is going to be equally as crazy!

Easter Cupcakes

My favorite holiday is almost here! I LOVE Easter. Ever since I was little, Easter was a magical holiday. Because not only did we color Easter eggs and find hidden baskets, but we also got to make the most delicious cupcakes ever! I'm a sucker for anything coconut, so obviously these Easter cupcakes are at the top of my list!
