Home Office & Gym Remodel: Coastal Farmgirl Style
This is a food blog, but today I’m sharing my newly remodeled home office and gym design with you! It’s the space where I do all of my writing, and that’s the motivation behind this project. As many of you know, I’m writing a new book, but before I get started, I’m setting myself up for success with a functional office space that doubles as a home gym.
In addition to food and cooking, I love interior design. This is the first space in my home that I’ve designed from start to finish, and I love how it turned out.

Chocolate Chunk Georgia Peanut Cookies
These cookies came together with pantry staples I already had on hand, and surprisingly turned out to be one of my favorite cookie recipes.

Fresh Cranberry Sauce
Thanksgiving is upon us, and whether you’re team canned cranberry or fresh, you’ve got to have this classic accompaniment on turkey day. I grew up eating the canned cranberry sauce and I must admit, I love the little ridges and all. The fresh stuff is good too, but it’s a different experience all together.
The lemon juice is the star ingredient in this recipe, inspired by the one and only Ina Garten. I use cranberry juice instead of water to reinforce the flavors. The cranberries simmering on the stovetop perfumes the whole home and really sets the mood for the holidays.
