Happy Merry Holidays

Christmas Photo

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!  It’s been a whirlwind of a year- full of new changes, growth, love, travel and laughter. I wanted to write a quick post wishing you all peaceful and relaxing holiday and also take a moment to thank you. Your support, love and encouragement during the first year of  the For the Love of Basil journey means so much to me and I’m so grateful for each and every one of you! We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with their family, friends and loved ones. Cheers to the season & all that is to come with the new year!

    So inspired by your love and your holiday shoot! I should do this with my husband next year!


    GORGEOUS! Love the pops of red in these photos against the snow. Where did you find your toque?


    These photos are absolutely gorgeous. I’m never brave enough to combat a snow filled picture. My nose and cheeks always get super red. These pictures make me want to give it another shot… 🙂

    You guys are too cute. I hope to get to the snow this winter. Southern CA isn’t this magical during the winter. Time to move haha.

    your blog is fun. I have found a few recipes i would love to make. Also, your photographer rocks

    • This Creamy Butternut Squash Soup 🍂 I've been buying butternut squash every time I go to the store lately, and this soup is one of my favorite creations this fall. If you are wanting something rich, creamy, soul-warming, and tastes like fall, I've got you covered fiend. •

    • These Roasted Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts are fall healthy food meets delicious comfort food! They are a favorite in our home and a staple to make when people come over because they are super easy and always a crowd pleaser. #healthyfood #fall
    • New post... About time right?! I basically took a summer long break from the blog but I'm back with these delicious Pomegranate Coconut Milk Pops. •

    • A new recipe is taking over as the most popular on my blog after being featured on Bon Appetite. Spicy Sweet Potato Avocado Rice Bowls for the win ✌🏻️ *link in profile* •
On another note, since I realize some of you just want to see my recipes 😜 I'm keeping this feed solely for my blog. If you want to follow our every day goofy life adventures with our little snugs, I have a personal account @hilshamilton #cleaneating #healthyrecipes #foodblogger
    • One of my favorite things in the world are waterfalls, so it's easy to say I'm head over heals for Kauai. #Kauai #hanakapiaifalls #hiking #hilsandrye #hhxotravels #nauxnow #hikingadventures #adventureisoutthere
    • Exploring rivers and waterfalls along the Na Pali Coast. #kauai #napalicoast #hhxotravels #wanderlust #travel #hiking #nauxnow
    • Ryan graduated, headed to Kauai tomorrow, moving apartments... Life is a little bit crazy and full of adventure at the moment so no new recipes or blogs posts for a bit. I've decided to just soak up and enjoy everything we've got going on right now. So for now, a #TBT shot of my Sweet Chili Salmon Rice Bowls. Also, I'll post a few of my favorite Kauai photos here but you can see more on snapchat and my personal account at @hilshamilton 😘 #foodblogger #instayum #salmon #feedfeed #utahblogger #foodphotography #cleaneating #healthyrecipes #healthyfoodshare
    • My heart has been bursting with pride and love as we celebrated this weekend. One of the things I love most about Ryan is what a hard worker he is, and how no matter what he has going on, he always fills our home with love and laughter. On to new adventures and memories! #byugrad #hilsandrye #byu #hisday #proudwife
