August 27, 2019

Benefits of attending Blog Conferences

One of my biggest tips when people ask me how to work with brands, and how to become an influencer and content creator is to be sure to attend in person conferences!  I have been attending conferences and summits for over 10 years now, I have even presented at many of them!  There is so much value in likeminded individuals coming together to learn, grow, and share as a community to help lift each other up!

Perfect Summer Peach Cobbler with a Gluten Free Version

Like I always say, “Peach Season is the Best Season!”  And, I am coming at you with one of my favorite peach cobbler recipes!  It is super easy, and guess what?  I also have a Gluten Free Peach Cobbler recipe to share with you too.  It’s like a two for one deal today!

And, while we are talking about Peach season.  If you haven’t tried my Fresh Peach Cream Pie recipe, well then stop what you are doing right now and head over there and pick up some extra peaches and make that recipe too.  I am telling you, you won’t be disappointed!  It’s been a favorite of many over the years, and my number one recipe of choice when fresh peaches are in season!

Anyway, back to the Cobbler!  My friend Miko shared her cobbler recipe with me years ago, and I’ve made a few adjustments, and we have enjoyed this cobbler over the years!  I wanted to get it written up somewhere because every time I make it on instagram, I get so many questions about the recipe!  So here you go!  And, stay tuned for the gluten-free version below!  You can always substitute the original recipe for gluten-free flour.  We have also tried that in the past, and it has been great!  This new Gluten-free recipe is a little different, and I like the combination of flavors it brings!

Buena Park California // Family Foodie Guide

Knotts Berry Farm Family Friendly

Spring Break was good time this year, we hit Southern California and lucked out with the most beautiful weather!

I was planning to speak at Alt Summit Conference in Palm Springs, and realized I would be missing Thomas’ 8th birthday, so I had my family fly out a few days early from their Spring Break and meet me in Buena Park and stay at the Knotts Berry Farm Hotel for some fun!  The kids loved the Snoopy Suite and the fun pool and splash pad area!  It made it super convenient to stay right near the park too!  We had such a good time, and hit up some new to us gems around town to eat at!
