Happy Saturday, friends!  Today, I am spending the day working on all kinds of homework and personal projects, but before I jump into those things, I wanted to share a recipe with you that I made for breakfast! It’s the most perfect choice for weekend breakfasts, late night snacks, and pretty much any other time that fits your schedule! This past week, I was pretty sick with some really bad throat pain.

If you read my last post, which was the Ethical Christmas Gift Guide, you might have seen one of my favorite necklaces of late, which is from Haiti Design Co. I also promised that my next post would give a little more details about why I love this line so much.
