Cold Brew Coffee How-To + Ginger and Lavender Syrups

Cold Brew Coffee How-To + Ginger & Lavender Syrups // 24 Carrot Life #coldbrewcoffee #howto #coffee #simplesyrup #DIY

When I was living in Mexico, I got really into making cold brew coffee. I realized how easy it was to make and was surprised by the smooth (rather than acidic) flavor of the coffee with this process. I would make a new batch each Sunday for the week ahead and store it in the fridge so it was easy to get my caffeine fix in before my morning visit to the gym. One week, I decided Read More »

Getting Back On Track with IZZE

New IZZE Sparkling Waters // 24 Carrot Life #healthy #sponsored

Daniel left last week after visiting for three weeks during his summer vacation from teaching and it was soo good to have him here. We cooked a ton, spent a weekend in New York City to see friends and family, fit in a few workouts (and a nature walk), binge watched Orange Is The New Black and relaxed together. Whenever we are together, I want to fit in as much as I can and I Read More »

Midwestern Steak Salad // 24 Carrot Life #sponsored #steak #mexicanfood #salad

Three recipes in one week and the second Mexican food recipe of the week. This is a new record, people! I used to post three recipes a week when I was living in Mexico, but since then I haven't had the same time to dedicate to the blog. However, I just had to share another recipe with you all before a new week begins. This salad is perfect to prep for your lunches this week. Read More »

Shredded Beef Breakfast Tacos

Shredded Beef Breakfast Tacos // 24 Carrot Life #crockpot #beef #ad #tacos #healthy

As someone who has lived and traveled in Mexico for about a year and a half, I'm slightly embarrassed to say that I didn't have breakfast tacos on the blog until today. I even did a whole series on the blog called Fiesta Fridays, and not once did breakfast tacos appear. I did sneak in Wild Mushroom Tacos while living in Mexico though, so at least the blog is not completely Read More »

Daniel and I just got back from four days in NYC and as usual, I ate my way through the city! We saw brothers and sisters, as well as some of my friends who live in the city. Thankfully, we had a few of these muffins left to bring for as a snack for our train ride up. These muffins have been a LONG time coming. I made them way back when I was living in Mexico, and felt Read More »

Watermelon Cocktail

Watermelon Cocktail // 24 Carrot Life #watermelon #summer #rum

I am trying to eat up all the summer fruits and veggies that I can, as evidenced here, here, and here. That's why this month's Recipe Redux theme to showcase summer's bounty in a recipe was an easy one. I'm not a big drinker, but to survive the summer heat I crave refreshing cocktails around this time of year. Over 4th of July weekend, I attempted to make watermelon Read More »

I finally took the plunge and bought a new lens for my DLSR camera. I follow so many bloggers who praise their 50 mm lens, and I have been envious for too long! My parents bought me this 35 mm outdated model Canon lens on Amazon as a very belated birthday gift (my birthday was in February, btw) and I am already in love with it! I bought a 35 mm instead of 50 mm because my Read More »
