This recipe was created in partnership with Harvest Snaps. We just returned from Paris and absolutely loved every moment. I left a little piece of my heart there, and I”m sure we’ll be back. The history and architecture alone, the immersion into another culture, the beauty down every street, and around every corner, is …
A slice of this Banana Breakfast Toast with Tart Cherry Swirled Yogurt + Cacao Nibs has all the elements of a banana split (sans pineapple!), while being wholesome.

This is a guide to a Maui vs Oahu vacation, photos, and suggestions.
These potato wedges are extra crispy on the outside, extra fluffy inside, and totally made for dipping. Best eaten straight off the pan. And I’ve included a recipe for homemade sour cream & chive dip, a must!
The secret lies in a two-step process. I know, you wanted it to be one. And so did I. But the results just weren’t as good. Failed experiments resulted in a few different outcomes: too oily, soggy, crisp on the outside but half raw inside, and under salted.
