You guys… this recipe is SUPER special to me <3 Every year, for every birthday since I met my husband, my mother in law makes this carrot cake! Yes, THIS exact recipe! Ok… I had to convert it to a gluten-free version, but it’s ALMOST just as good as hers :) I think this would make her proud though! I’m so happy she has shared it with me!! Keep reading...


I won today, Anxiety

By Katrina Yoneda - June 18, 2018

Today I crushed one of my biggest fears—FLYING!!


I know to some, this may seem silly or like nothing to celebrate... but for me this is a huge WIN!! I used to fly just “fine”. We’ve flown to Ireland, the Virgin Islands, Hawaii, Florida... all with much longer flight times than CA to WA. After Caleb was born, however, I developed an absolutely CRIPPLING fear of flying. I mean f’ing awful.  Story time!

The tofu is cooked until golden & crispy, tossed in a sweet & salty pineapple sauce, accompanied by fresh mango & avocado, all served over a bed of creamy coconut rice! HOLY YUM.

#truthbomb about MOVING |with a toddler|

By Katrina Yoneda - May 23, 2018

It all started with a public breakdown. We are talking FULL ON, both hands in my face sobbing! Before I set the scene for THAT pretty little episode; you got to know the events that led up to this very public & manic incident. You’re most likely going to laugh when you find out what the straw was that broke the camel’s back. Thinking about it after some serious hibernation under my blankets with a box of tissue… I can see the humor in it. But first, let’s backtrack!

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Oat Bars

By Katrina Yoneda - March 28, 2018

These bars are SO quick & painless to make! They couldn’t be any easier to whip together. The hardest part is waiting to eat them while they chill in the fridge. They are a no bake bar & only require some ingredients to be heated up on the stove. EASYYYY!!

They have a delicious rich fudgy chocolate peanut butter center & a chewy brown sugar oat crust/topping. We are talking YUM-tastic!
