Check out these mushroom types and the benefits they offer

I’m not the biggest fan of mushrooms. I can appreciate them in the sense they’re incredibly versatile and offer a multitude of benefits to those of us who consume them, but I just cannot get past their texture. I can do button mushrooms from time to time, but not the bigger, badder guys. Blagh. Despite … More Check out these mushroom types and the benefits they offer

Did 2020 prompt you to start a bad habit?

Bad habits are easy enough to unconsciously undertake. Small, irregular behaviours, in time, become more prominent and repetitive, unfortunately resulting in, often times, a habit we wish we hadn’t picked up. Poor habits are understandably something all of us have some experience with, and I would wager that more of us dabbled in shitty habits … More Did 2020 prompt you to start a bad habit?

Here’s how to make your own hot chocolate from scratch

Hot chocolate is a beverage most of us can appreciate. It’s delicious, sweet, hearty and warming, and it serves its purpose on a chilly Winters day. I find it somewhat bothersome that majority of us purchase hot chocolate in its powdered form considering it really isn’t all that difficult to make it from scratch. If … More Here’s how to make your own hot chocolate from scratch

Oatmeal cookies are seriously underestimated, in my opinion.

Heading to Alabama? Be sure to check out Drexell & Honeybee restaurant

I never really realized just how much I’ve been taking restaurants for granted until COVID-19 hit and forced many of them to temporarily close.
