Molten Lava Cakes (Gluten & Refined Sugar Free) {Picture Tutorial}

Valentine’s Day is here and you can’t spend the day without making these wonderfully chocolatey lava cakes.

Molten lava cakes have been a favorite dessert of mine ever since I was little. I clearly remember the first time I ate one; I was on vacation in Whistler (a beautiful town in British Colombia), with my family and the four of us had to share one little lava cake. I remember the hot chocolate oozing out with vanilla ice cream melting into the warm cake, my nine year old self wondering how in the world did they get the center of the cake all melty and yummy.

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies

Cookies are really popular this time of year. There are sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, gingerbread men, and so many more holiday cookies. I wanted to try something a bit different using two of my favorite ingredients in cookies- oatmeal and brown sugar!

Homemade marshmallows are officially my favorite thing in the world. They taste so much better than regular store bought marshmallows and they have none of those nasty chemicals and preservatives either.

Aloha Hawaii! (Pt. 2) {A Taste Of My Life}

This is week 2 of my Hawaii adventure! If you haven’t read week 1 yet, then click here!

Okay, so I left off on Sunday, the last day of week 1. Here I go with week 2, day 8!

Day 8:

As I mentioned in my previous post, this was the day my family and I were going to a Luau. A Luau is basically this big Hawaiian feast where hundreds of people eat delicious authentic food while getting entertained by a number traditional hawaiian dances.

So that evening, my family drove to the Grand Wailea, which is this beautiful resort where the Luau was being held.

Aloha Hawaii! (Pt. 1) {A Taste Of My Life}

(Edit: It took me a LONG time to complete this post as a lot happened in between and I also had to edit hundreds of pictures that were taken which is why I’m posting it few months late :|.)

Summer vacation was upon us and we were looking for some place fun and relaxing to go for vacation. Or rather my dad was looking for places as my mom and I were in Las Vegas during this time. (Click for more on our trip to Vegas)

So basically what happens is my dad calls my mom while we’re in Vegas and tells her that we were going to Hawaii. My mom excitedly asks when. That’s when my dad replies “Oh, in two days”.

Yup, planning two days in advance for a two week trip to Hawaii. Fortunately this wasn’t the first time we’ve gone into a trip with proper planning (refer to Spring Break Trip), so we kind of made the plans along the way. If you know me, then you know I’m not a very spontaneous person, so this was an adventure indeed.
