Knit iPad Cover

I just finished this iPad cover...and I LOVE it. It fits my iPad perfectly and I feel so much better about carrying it around in my purse.

Summer Knitting Projects

I've done a blog post before on what to knit during the summer but I thought I would do a new, updated version.

During the summer I like to take a break from knitting wintery hats and scarves. Instead, I use bright colors and tend to knit more home-decor items.

Here are some of my favorite summer projects!

Blue Chai

This Herbal Blue Chai was probably the weirdest tea I've ever had.

Check out Blue Chai's website here:

I will post the link to my tea review as soon as it is published.

Oh and did I mention this tea changes to purple when you add lemon?

Hand-painted Teacup

I recently went to a place with my friend and we painted our very own teacups! I absolutely love how they turned out.

This morning I enjoyed my gluten-free lemon bars and Spicely Tulsi Chai in my new teacup.

Can I take a moment just to explain to you how amazing this Tulsi Chai tea is?
It is caffeine-free yet a very rich and smooth brew. Also, the list of health benefits is amazing.

Tulsi is stress-relieving, aids restful sleep, aids digestion, helps with headaches, helps maintain healthy eyesight, can prevent kidney stones, improves the immune system, helps prevent colds, fights gum disease, helps with bad breath, and the list goes on!

I'm going to start drinking a cup of this every day before bed. It not only has amazing health benefits but tastes lovely!

Gluten-Free Lemon Bars

For Mother's Day I made these delicious gluten-free lemon coconut bars. I didn't have all the ingredients I needed to follow an exact recipe so I decided to wing it-and it turned out wonderful!

Gluten-Free Lemon Coconut Bars 
(Adapted from this recipe:


5 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
3 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
2 cups shredded coconut
3/4 cup almond meal/flour
1/4 cup all purpose gluten-free flour (I used Trader Joe's blend)
2 egg whites (save the yolks)


3 eggs and the 2 egg yolks
7 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 cup and 2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons gluten-free all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sweet rice flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour

Crust: Preheat the oven to 350. Mix all the ingredients together until fully combined and press into a small pan (I put parchment paper underneath so the bars came out easily). Bake for 10-13 minutes.

Filling: beat the eggs until foamy and then add the rest of the ingredients. Beat all the ingredients for two minutes. Pour the filling onto the crust. Bake for about 18 minutes (on 350) until the filling is set (not liquid).

Let bars cool and then cover with powdered sugar. I suggest keeping the bars in the refrigerator after they cool.
