Hi there! I’m Sarah, a baking and workout enthusiast. I grew up on the East Coast in Connecticut then spent eight wonderful years in Texas (where I met my Canadian husband). Did I mention that I am a newlywed living in a new country with my hubby? I’ve always been active. I started as a gymnast turned dancer turned cheerleader. I cheered for an amazing Division 1 school in Fort Worth, TX… Yes, TCU (Go Frogs!). I really started cooking and baking while I was in college. I find it fun to take recipes and put my own twist on them.  I’m here to share with you all of my favorite recipes, workouts and things I’ve learned along the way. I am totally a people person, and love encouraging and inspiring others. I hope this blog does that for you.

Sending all my love from Canada!

– Sarah

Ingredients:

2 Ripe Avocados

1 Lemon or Lemon Juice

Garlic Powder

Salt

Optional: tomatoes and onions

Directions:

  1. Peel and cut avocados. Place them into a small bowl.
  2. Add the juice from 1 lemon (or 2 tablespoons lemon juice).
  3. Mash avocado with a fork so it becomes soft.
  4. Mix in garlic powder and salt to taste. I typically add ½ teaspoon each of salt and garlic powder. We all have different preferences though 🙂
  5. Optional: Chop up tomatoes and onions and add them to the guacamole.
