Thanksgiving 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies!


SFG Diary peanut butter cookies

Dear Diary,

My stomach hurts, and sadly there’s no one to blame but myself… LOL… that’s what happens when I decide to eat my entire batch of peanut butter cookies in one day.  It started out innocently enough, I was experimenting with which dessert recipe to make for thanksgiving when I decided that these “Thanksgiving” 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies were the way to go!  They are simple and healthy while still feeling festive and indulgent.  Now I don’t recommend you follow my example and eat the whole batch in one sitting, but at least if you do, you can feel good about knowing that they’re non-processed, delicious and easy to make– so just make yourself another batch and enjoy! :)

thanksgiving PB cookies


Line a cookie sheet pan with non-stick parchment paper

In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of peanut butter with two eggs

Once completely mixed,  place individual peanut butter cookie scoops on the parchment (use an ice cream scooper so that they cook evenly)

press down on each cookie ball with a fork to create a leaner shape and interesting texture

cook in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes

While the cookies cool, combine 1 cup of dark chocolate with 1/2 cup of almond milk or half and half

place in a microwave safe bowl and heat for about 30 seconds

gently mix together until it is shiny and smooth (about 5 minutes), and add more liquid if needed

Lastly, place the chocolate ganache in a ziplock bag and cut one of the corner tips

then squeeze the bag (like a pastry bag), squirting out a thin line of chocolate sauce to coat the top of the cookies

lastly add your favorite festive toppings!  Sprinkles, crushed oreos, graham crackers… you like it, I love it! ;)

So next time you’re overwhelmed with which thanksgiving dessert to make– remember that this delicious treat is an easy solution!

Peppermint Protein Bites – The Holidays are Here!


Peppermint Protein Bites 21


Dear Diary,

Christmas came early for us, Stubblefields. After a year of looking for a home, finally finding a home and renovating that said home. We can FINALLY move in!! It truly feels like an early Christmas gift and for that reason, I was inspired to do something festive in the kitchen – with these peppermint protein bites! They are crunchy little bites of deliciousness and a must make for anyone always on the go.

I have a lot of travel for work coming up and these are perfect to put in the refrigerator overnight and take to the airport in the morning.  They are a little sweeter than other protein bites I have made in the past. However, they are still better than the empty calorie and sugary snacks available at the airport kiosks.

Oh- how I love the holiday season! I can’t wait to show you it to  all it. It’s a work in progress with a lot of foreseeable DIY’s, get ready for some serious life hacks. But in the meantime…


Here’s what you need to make these delicious bites:

1/4 cup protein powder (I used cookies n cream protein powder)

6 tablespoons of almond milk

2 tablespoons of peanut butter

1 tablespoons of agave nectar

2 tablespoons of coconut flour

Peppermint flakes

Different Angle Peppermint Protein Bites

Mix all the ingredients together, then roll in small bite sized balls and dust with peppermint flakes and white sprinkles for a festive appeal. This also adds some great texture.

SoCal HeARTs Holiday Party


Dear Diary,

As some of you know I started a non-profit (SoCal HeARTs) with one of my best friends over 5 years ago. It started as a Holiday Party and we’ve been lucky enough to team up with Camp TLC in the past 3 years and have put on an arts based kids camp for foster children and at risk youth in the Watts/Compoton area of Los Angeles.

I went through a weird period during the journey of this non-profit, where I doubted what impact our efforts really made… after this year’s Summer Camp and seeing all our kid’s faces I was reminded that even if just one child takes something positive away from their experience it was all worth it! To see the confidence and talents they nurture over the course of a week is so exciting and gives me hope for our future. To know what they’ve been through in their short lives and see their resilience through it all – I can’t help but feel inspired and proud of them. They are wonderful and strong and I’m so grateful to have their glowy, little spirits in my life!

Camp SoCal HeARTs

It’s also cool to witness our volunteers leaving with full hearts and a passion for giving back! Several of them have added a charitable sectors to their businesses since getting involved and it’s so inspiring to see. We all can make a difference! The world is a big place, yes, and the thought taking on the world’s problems is overwhelming and seems impossible. But if we all are just kind to eachother and try to do our best we are already making it a better place… Always put your shiniest self forward!

Summer Camp Video:

Chappy Happy created a bracelet to support our charity and is donating 20% of the profits to the cause! Click the link below to get the details and purchase yours! Perfect gift for the upcoming holidays!

You can also sponsor a child this holiday season by purchasing a present off our Amazon gift list… If you would like to volunteer at the kid’s Holiday Party (on Saturday, December 5th from 1-4PM). Please contact me by leaving a comment below.

So much love…

Pumpkin “Caramels”


pumpkin caramels yum

Dear Diary,

When I went searching for some sweet treat inspiration earlier this week, I was having some trouble.  Of course there are so many delicious recipes to try, but many seemed too complicated, or too processed… but then I came across Pumpkin “Caramels”, and I was immediately intrigued.  I love any recipe that stays true to the holiday spirit, and the best part is that there is NO ADDED SUGAR and only FIVE INGREDIENTS in total.  This recipe is easy to make, perfect for dessert or a mid-day snack, and are super delicious!

SFG Diary pumpkin caramelsThese are similar to my recent “Pumpkin Pie Bites” except there are fewer ingredients and and even sweeter!  These little caramels really do taste similar to the real deal– it is amazing how sweet dates can be, and the touch of pumpkin adds a perfect layer of fall flavor! They are so ooey-gooey and natural sweet– just like I like it! :)  I am definitely going to try to make these again this thanksgiving– because they definitely won’t last in my freezer– I’ve already had several today with my coffee LOL (but whose counting ;))

pumpkin caramels SFG


In a food processor combine:

  • 1 & 1/4 cups of dates
  • 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (make sure it is in liquid form)
  • add 3 large dashes of cinnamon spice & clove spice
  • add a few tablespoons of hot water to smooth out the “caramel” mixture

*keep processing the mixture until it is shiny and smooth– the texture of caramel

then put in the freezer for several hours (any where from 2-6 hours is great!)

The mixture will be soft and fudge-like, but a lot easier to manipulate

use a spoon to scoop out small amounts of the caramel and the roll into a ball or square using your hands

finally– roll in salted pumpkin seeds and enjoy!!!

** leave in the freezer to keep fresh and enjoy anytime!

DIY Marbled Table Top


Dear Diary,

I’m pretty proud of myself for my latest Ikea hack… I’ve been completely redoing my place, and sometimes when you’re determined to make something new and fresh and on a budget you get more creative and surpass your own expectations! I took a simple, white Ikea cabinet I bought off of Craigslist and modified it to make it look more expensive, feminine and unique.

I was able to do this cabinet makeover for under $30! Check it out…

 DIY Marble Table Top 



* Marbled Contact Paper

* Scissors

* Hanger

(Or something that can act as a smoother to appy the sticky paper and remove air bubbles. A ruler or anything straight and flat should work fine… I just happened to have a hanger handy :)



1. Measure out the exact amount of contact paper you need to fit the surface area.

2. Cut the paper to fit the measurements.

3. Remove backing of sticky paper.

4. (You’ll need another person to help with this step) Apply contact paper to one side/edge of surface and slowly lay flat across the entire surface. Have the other person pushing the hanger following along as the contact paper is being layed to remove any air bubbles.

(The last step took several trial and errors for me and it finally worked out perfectly when I had an extra set of hands and a hanger to smooth out the paper!)

5. (Optional) Lay a piece of glass over the top.

6. Voila!



I also added ceramic knobs to the center of each door to give the piece even more personality!


1. Measure the exact center of each door.

2. Mark center point with a pencil.

3. Drill a small hole into the mark.

4. Screw in your new knobs!

** Mine are from Anthropologie **

(They have the cutest selection of knobs!)


Then, style out your table top with your favorite candle, coffee table books (I have my photography featured in the displayed book – here!), etc… It’s important to keep your surfaces looking clean, but also showcasing items that make you feel at home and inspired!

Have a good Ikea hack for us?! Share in the comments below…

Healthy Apple Monster Snack


healthy apple monster snack

Dear Diary,

Every year I say to myself, “I’m going to make this Halloween count.”  I convince myself that I’m going to come up with the most epic costume (months in advance of course); throw my friends the spookiest Halloween party; watch every classic horror film; visit every pumpkin patch; and of course indulge in the sweetest treats the holiday has to offer (without gaining any holiday weight.)  Wishful thinking right?  Ha.  Every year I say this… and it’s been years since I felt like I truly embraced the spirit of the holiday.   I think it’s one of life’s lessons to learn that you can’t embrace EVERYTHING fully.  As I get older, I learn more about the importance of balance in your life… if I spent every moment of October “embracing” Halloween, there’s a lot of other things in my life I would have to ignore… so with this new “adult” attitude, I’m learning to just enjoy whatever Holiday fun I can… and leave the rest.  With that said, while I refuse to eat pillow cases full of processed candy (like I did as a kid), I will of course indulge with the rest of the country this Halloween!  But I thought that this week, I’d start some of the fun early with this spooky but Healthy Apple Monster Snack!  It was so easy, and so fun to make… but completely guilt-free!

healthy apple monster treat


Apples!  (as many as you want– one apple makes 2 monsters) (cut the apple in half length wise and then use a knife to shape the mouth and mold the lips

peanut butter (spread on the “inner mouth” of the apple so that the strawberry tongue sticks!)

Sunflower seeds (for the teeth!– stick into the apple)

strawberries (slice thinly length-wise)

{if you want to add eyes– use greek yogurt for the white part ( you can sweeten it with some truvia if you like), and then a chocolate chip or Justin’s organic chocolate spread as the pupil)

And that’s it! ;)

healthy halloween snack

Make this for your friends, your co-workers at the office, your kids, your friends kids, or just for yourself!  Enjoy SFG’s!

Girl’s Pre-Halloween Gathering Party Décor


white donut

Dear Diary,

Halloween is almost here and I can’t wait to for the festivities to begin!! Witches, ghouls and pretty pumpkin décor…”insert record scratch sound here”. No, I didn’t mistakenly right pretty décor – gosh darn it I mean it! I’m literally seeing Halloween through my rose colored glasses and want everything to have a pink hue. This starts with the decorating of pumpkins; I’ve dressed them up, as pink and pearl frosted donuts. If you can’t eat ‘em, why not paint them and burn a delightfully scented candle?

Three D's

The idea to girlie up my décor is in support of a girl’s pre-party Halloween gathering. Rather than serve blood red cocktails with scary décor, I decided on garden roses and a well-let selfie station. In the social media world we find ourselves today, it’s a pre-event that’s very pinterestable. So, give in already and jump on the pretty Halloween décor bandwagon…starting with these frosted foe-nut pumpkins:)


Here’s what you need:

Tiny beige pumpkins

Painters tape

Pink multi-surface paint

White multi-surface paint

Pearl Blue multi surface paint

         4 pumpkins

Rainbow of colors

Paint brushes

First, clean the pumpkins and dry them- they usually have dirt on them! Then take the painters tape and cut in long pieces.  You will them use the tape strands to create a circle about halfway between the bottom and the top of the pumpkin. This allows you to create a somewhat even division between the “icing” part and the “donut” part of your pumpkin. Then I painted the top half of the pumpkin with the different icing colors – pink, ice blue, and white. Carefully, take the painters tape off and fix any areas that need to be evened out. Wait for your base color to dry, before you start adding the “sprinkles.” Just dash different colors on and have fun!

Vegan Mushroom & Cabbage Pizza


vegan mushroom and cabbage pizza SFG diary

Dear Diary,

Me and cheese are in a long-term relationship… Brie, Mozzarella, ricotta; name the cheese, I’ll eat it.  But on my quest to eat more vegetables and natural proteins– I’ve also opted to try and eat less cheese.  This means, that while I can’t say no to any cheese put in front of me, I can choose to make more dishes cheese-less.  And that’s where this Vegan Pizza comes in… This pizza is topped with all kinds of savory vegetables (hence the long name ;)… and with a crispy crust and a sweet vegan cheese sauce, I’m sure you won’t be able to resist this dish either, so vegan mushroom & cabbage pizza anyone?

vegan mushroom and cabbage pizza

This Vegan Pizza is not very time consuming– the prep work of chopping the vegetables is almost all that is required.


1: place a piece  of Ezekiel brand whole wheat (or flaxseed) tortilla under a broiler to crisp up

2: in a sauce pan saute in 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and 1 tbsp of ghee butter: 3 garlic cloves, half a white onion, 3 containers of mushrooms (I used shiitake and button mushrooms)

3: Once softened, add in fresh purple cabbage, cannellini beans and about 10 sliced black olives (I forgot how good these are!)

Mix all together and generously season with salt and pepper

4: Finally, garnish with some fresh (uncooked) purple cabbage and basil

5:  Now smother your crisp tortilla in vegan tofutti ricotta (or regular ricotta if you prefer– you can find both at your local health food market), then pour on the vegetables, and enjoy!

vegan mushroom pizza

Doesn’t this look so delicious?  It is the most satisfying way for me to get all my vegetables in for the day!

Pumpkin Pie Bites


pumpkin bites

Dear Diary,

Two days ago, summer officially disappeared.  It’s been crazy, the sun and greenery left overnight, and autumn leaves, cool winds and jacket weather filled the void.  One of the reasons I left California was because I missed beautiful fall weather, but this quick transition into the next season has me second guessing myself a little bit, lol.  But now that October has come, it’s time for me to embrace the season fully, and that means embracing EVERYTHING PUMPKIN.  Pumpkin isn’t just a delicious, seasonal squash– it’s extremely good for you too!  That’s why, I’m happy putting it in everything from sweet to savory… and these Pumpkin Pie Bites are sweet to the max, but are a completely natural and simple snack or dessert treat.

pumpkin pie bites SFG Diary


  • combine the following ingredients together in a food processor until it’s completely mixed and relatively smooth

1/2 cup of pumpkin puree

10 dates

1 tsp of cinnamon

1/4 tsp of ground cloves

1/4 tsp of nutmeg

big pinch of salt

2 tsp of vanilla extract

1/4 cup (or just a big handful) of unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup of pecans

  • roll the mixture into balls and place on a wax paper tray
  • place the ball bites into a refrigerator to cool and harden (at least 20 minutes), and then they’re ready to eat and enjoy!

SFG Diary pumpkin pie balls

When it comes to pumpkin pie spices– you don’t even miss the sugar!  And the coconuts and dates provide the perfect sweetness, while the pecans add that great crunchy texture.  It’s nice to know that I can have my cake and eat it too this fall– this pumpkin pie bite is the guilt-free sweet craving that I’ll be making all season long!

You’re welcome SFG’s!  ;)  Will you be trying this recipe?  Let us know!

Vacation Revives Salads in My Life


Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Dear Diary,

There’s nothing like coming down from a vacation high, at least for me. Today, I’m returning from Kauai, Hawaii. After a week of choosing whether to go hiking, beaching or snorkeling, I’m now faced with the harsh reality of my work/life to-do list – it’s long, really long, like the length of Santa’s naughty or nice list. The silver lining, I feel refreshed enough from my trip to conquer that said list. We all need time to hit the reset button and this trip was much needed. My vacay reawakened my love of activities, working out and eating fresh clean food. True to form, I did also enjoy some adult beverages :)

Now that I’m back, I’m making it a priority to eat REAL food. I’m a Quest Bar, processed food junkie when things get stressful. This trip reminded that not only did I feel better eating real food, I actually look better. My eyes are brighter, my skin clearer and my stomach a little flatter…Not that that’s the main focus, but a flatter stomach is a fitness goal that I strive for and am constantly inspired by the many Insta-famous stomachs out there. Tonight, I’m kicking off my real food dinner with a bright, green and crunchy salad.


IMG_0768[1]Here’s what you need for the salad:

1 large head of Boston lettuce

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons of dried cherries

2 slices of goat cheese (optional if you want to treat yourself)

2 slices of avocado



2 tablespoons of Olive Oil

1 ½ tablespoons of Champagne Vinegar

1 tablespoon of Teriyaki sauce

1 teaspoon of onion powder

Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare the dressing in a smaller mason jar. Add the ingredients together listed above in the directions, shake vigorously and salt and pepper to taste. Wash and prepare the lettuce. Place clean and dried lettuce in a large bowl. Slice the avocado and goat cheese, place in the salad. Next sprinkle in the dried cherries and sunflower seeds. Toss salad with the homemade dressing and serve immediately!

And here’s to many more nights of eating real food!

sfg diary zucchini fries

Dear Diary,

Hey SFG’s!  We’re so sorry we haven’t been able to post lately– between labor day weekend adventures and NYFW, we haven’t been able to find the time to write!  But now that fall is officially here– I’m ready to snuggle under a cozy blanket, breathe in the fresh fall air, and sip on some apple cider… Fall is my favorite season; and with fall, comes football!  As many of you already know, I could care less about the sport, but LOVE me some Football Sundays… there’s few things I love more than good friends, cocktails and good food, and football allows for all three!!  Fall Veggie Fries are the perfect snack for the big game, or just a lazy fall afternoon– plus they’re pretty heathy too!  They’re the perfect combination between a “mozzarella stick” and a “french fry” but best part is that they’re baked, not fried; the recipe calls for almond flour instead of wheat flour, and is made of zucchini and squash instead of fatty cheeses and potatoes.

SFG healthy fries

Want to give these a try?  It’s simpler than you think ;)


2 zucchinis

1 squash

almond flour

Italian flavored bread crumbs

nutritional yeast


2 eggs

your favorite dipping sauce (I love aioli, hot sauce, tomato sauce)

veggie fries


  • chop the zucchinis and squash length wise and then once in half to create the “fry” shape
  • put the veggies in a plastic bag and place in the freezer for at least a half an hour to harden
  • then in three separate bowls place: almond flour and salt and pepper (about 1 cup), 2 eggs mixed (ready to coat the veggies), and Italian bread crumbs (about 1 cup) / salt and pepper/ and any other seasonings you like in the last bowl
  • dip the zucchinis and squash in each bowl– starting with the almond flour, then the eggs, and lastly the bread crumb mixture
  • once completely coated, put the zucchinis and squash on a baking rack (this is the best way to make sure they bake crispy and evenly), and bake in the oven at 425 degrees for 20-22 minutes

veggie sticks SFG Diary

Once done, dip, eat and enjoy!

This is delicious, guilt-free snacking at its finest! ;)

Holiday Weekend Cocktails


Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

Dear Diary,

Labor Day weekend is almost here, and my favorite way to celebrate is with friends, beach time, and Holiday Weekend Cocktails.  Hosting a labor day weekend party?  We’ve got you covered with this summer-meets-fall drink!  It’s a bitter-sweet holiday weekend– we’re saying goodbye to the glorious summer sun, and winding down into Fall.  But I have to say, I couldn’t be more excited for Fall fashion, crisp weather, and fall feast favorites!  This cocktail is the perfect combination of summer and fall– the grapefruit juice provides that sweet and citrus summer taste that we expect, while the rosemary simple syrup adds an earthy-fall element!  Plus, by using Truvia (zero calorie natural sweetener), we balance out the tart grapefruit, but keep this drink low in calories… wooooo woo!

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED (for 2 cocktails)

The juice of 3 grapefruits

4 tbsp of Truvia

small bundle of Rosemary


Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset


  • Boil 1.5 cups of water and add the Truvia and rosemary to steep.
  • When cool, add the mixture to the grapefruit juice (about 1/2 cup)
  • Add as much vodka as you’d like (I don’t like my drinks too strong, so I added only one shot to my cocktail)
  • Add ice, and a spring of Rosemary for garnish… Now Enjoy! ;)

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

And that’s it… a simple and tasty cocktail to keep the celebrations going all weekend long!  What are you doing this labor day weekend?  Let us know!

DIY Summer Sun Repairing Hair Mask


natural DIY hair mask

Dear Diary,

It’s kind of funny that my first summer back in NY, and I’m tanner than I ever was living by the beach in Los Angeles.  Ha!  I think it’s a combination between the east coast humidity and having a pool only steps away from my front door.  While I love outdoor living, I am no less than a control-freak when it comes to skin care– whether its 20 minutes or 4 hours of fun in the sun, I’m wearing layers of organic sunscreens to protect my skin.  While skin care is a routine must– I some how forget to nourish my hair.  Sun exposure, plus chlorine can really damage the hair, and it’s about time I start repairing it before the fall season hits.  NYFW is coming up, and I am so excited to have my SFG gal pals in town to enjoy the festivities.  And you know, we want to feel our best!  So Damaged Summer Hair?  No more, thanks to a DIY Summer Sun Repairing Hair Mask.  This mask is simple, natural, and will provide your hair with the nourishment it needs!



combine these moisturizing ingredients for shiny, soft, health hair:

  • 1 avocado (moisturizes)
  • 2 tbsp honey (adds shine)
  • 1 tbsp of jojoba oil (protects and nourishes)
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil (nourishing and moisturizing)
  • 1-2 tbsp of rosemary/chamomile “tea water” (rosemary stimulates hair growth– thicker hair? Yes, please. Chamomile soothes a sun burned scalp)


(steep chamomile tea bag and 1 tbsp of rosemary in hot water.  After 10 minutes, drain the liquid)

optional: add lemon grass to your rosemary/chamomile concoction– it is great for nourishing the scalp if you suffer from dandruff)

SFG DIARY hair repair

Once all the ingredients are combined into a soft paste, apply to damp hair, and then let the hair “marinate” in a warm (slightly damp) towel for 30 minutes.  Then rinse out!  Afterwards, your hair should feel healthier and softer!
