Years ago when I first moved to Kansas City, I ventured down to the Crossroads with some friends to experience the city’s monthly art crawl, First Fridays. We hopped from gallery to gallery, but then as we were walking down the street one of my friends stopped in her tracks and insisted that we must stop by Christopher Elbow’s.
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to travel to California with a group of some wonderful bloggers for the Dole Taste of Spain Salad Summit. We spent about 3 days together in beautiful Monterey following lettuce from farm to table, learning about healthy eating trends, eating all sorts of crazy good fresh food, and of course — enjoying time shared with some delightful new and old friends.

Any of you who follow along on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram will know that last week I went on a 3-Day Suja Juice Cleanse!
Yep. For 3 days, I gave up normal food and drinks (no caffeine or alcohol), and instead drank 6 delicious and huge bottles of Suja juices each day. This was my first time doing a “cleanse” or anything like it for 3 whole days. Granted, I love to juice at home, and will often use juices as a replacement for 1 or 2 meals a day. But 3 full days was a different experience, and a very different one when everything is already prepared for you, which I found to be brilliant.
I have been wanting to do this post forever, and it’s finally here! That’s right folks. Today we are talking all things pour-over coffee!
About a year ago, I was introduced to pour-over at Intelligentsia when my friend Amy and I took a road trip to Chicago, and I fell in love. Then I couldn’t believe my luck when the same month that I moved to the River Market in Kansas City, a pour-over coffee shop opened up in the neighborhood and quickly became my home away from home. (Small world — one of the owners, Liz, became the writer for our style blog here at Gimme Some!)
When cooking with friends over the years, I’ve noticed most of my friends have never heard about the easy (and foolproof!) trick for how to fill cupcake liners. I didn’t learn about it myself until a few years ago when I just started blogging. But now that I do, I use it every single time I make muffins and cupcakes. The trick?
