Dandelion Donuts – Step Up Tallahassee

Good morning readers! Do you like donuts? Do you like supporting local businesses? Do you live in/near Tallahassee? If so, I am about to make your day. Allow me to introduce you to Dandelion Donuts! They’re vegan, they’re organic, they’re delivered in a wonderful eco-friendly modified bicycle, and most importantly, they are INSANELY delicious. They had a launch party for their Indiegogo fundraiser this past Saturday at Sweet Pea Cafe, and Andy and I had to stop by and try things out.

Strawberry Basil! These were Andy’s favorites by far, and I have to admit that I love how they were delightfully pink without any artificial coloring.  The Summer Herb was my runner up favorite. It was perfectly tart and a tiny bit herbaceous. I could eat these all summer long! Double Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs! Me with my favorite, the Maple Facon. I don’t know how I have lived this long and never tried coconut bacon. It’s perfectly crispy and exactly what this donut needs to contrast that rich maple glaze.

To find out more about Dandelion Donuts and to support this local venture, check out their fundraiser Indiegogo page, and to receive updates on progress and availability be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram.


Good Night Moon

When I was in college, my friends and I used to drive just outside the city to an area called the greenway. We always went at night, and we’d spread out quilts on the ground and just lay there talking, sipping hot chocolate and looking at the stars. I remember laying there listening to the breeze ruffling the long grass, feeling the tip of my nose go numb, and literally seeing our words suspended above us as the stars twinkled and the moon hung ripe and full overhead. It’s one of my favorite college memories, and  when I saw these beautiful Luna Lamps, it took me back in time.

Aside from making me nostalgic, I thought these lamps would be really cool for kid’s rooms. Personally, I’d like a larger one for the living room and a small one for the guest bathroom. We have a lot of family and friends who like to come up for mini vacations and it would make navigating around an unfamiliar house in the dark much easier.
