Good morning, friends! Long time no see. Okay, that’s totally my fault–but guess what? The new blog is officially live!
When I started this process back in January I knew it was going to be a big project. Then I hired not one but two developers who weren’t experienced enough to do the job correctly which made it a whole lot bigger. After three long weeks I was already out a few hundred dollars and had practically nothing to show for it besides a seriously messed up looking blog.
Thankfully Cassie of the beautiful Back to Her Roots, introduced me to her a-mazing developer. Just when I was ready to abort the rebrand altogether, Joe welcomed me and my messed up looking blog with open arms and, as you can see, completely turned the project around.
I’ll save the woes of rebranding for another post though. Let’s get to the good stuff, shall we?
CHECK OUT WHAT’S NEW on ATE…
Hello lovelies! Today’s a big day. I’m thrilled to say that the new blog, According to Elle, is officially live! Come on over and check it out. Can’t wait to see you there!
P.S. Just a reminder, this little blog will officially be retired and automatically direct you to the new site in a little bit–so don’t forget to add ATE to your Bloglovin and Feedly readers for updates every time a new post is published!

Soooo, I put off posting last week’s workout thinking I’d be able to share it with you from the shiny,new blog this morning. Unfortunately we hit some snags over the weekend which pushed the debut back just a few more days–so guess what? We’re going to have one last nutritionella Workout of the Week!
This one uses 100% body weight–perfect for those days you don’t have time to hit the gym, or those nights you can’t peel yourself away from the girl drama happening on The Bachelor—that is if you’re hip enough to watch The Bachelor. I personally prefer the mob-drama on General Hospital more.
I hope to be sharing the new blog with you later this week but for now, have a fabulous + sweaty Monday, friends!
PS. If you missed it, here’s a sneak peek that I posted to Facebook this weekend!
You food blog readers know that March 14th, or Pi Day, is no longer a holiday just for math-lovers. Add an “e” to the end and people like you and I know what Pi Day is really about. As you might imagine, Pi Day is heavily celebrated where I work because, not only do we have a lot of really smart, math-loving engineers at MyFitnessPal, but we also love to eat.
In honor of Pi Day this year, one of those math & food-loving engineers has proposed a MyFitnessPal homemade pie competition. Yes, at MFP we have healthy snacks, sparkling water on tap, treadmill work stations and weekly yoga classes, but we’re all about living a healthy balance—which of course involves the occasional slice of pie.
As the food blogging Registered Dietitian at the company, my officemates are of course expecting me to bring my A-game. After all, I was the one that showed up with a tray full of Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies on my first day–so they know I can bake.
The competition is going to be fierce so I’ve been thinking deeply about pies with wow-power. You know what came to mind? A pie in a cast iron skillet—because everything looks and tastes better in a cast iron skillet.
To get my pie-inspiration juices flowing, I put together this collection of 14 perfect cast iron skillet pies on Foodie.com. I make a mean caramel apple pie topped with oats, butter and brown sugar that could easily be done in a skillet, but I don’t know—I’m kind of salivating over the idea of a rustic-looking galette with this blueberry & peach filling. Which one of these is calling your name?
If you’re looking to celebrate Pi Day with an “e” too, head on over to Foodie and poke around in their pie archives. I’m sure you’ll find a few that’ll make you drool.
Pie: What’s your all-time favorite?
This post was a sponsored opportunity with Foodie.com but, as always, opinions and delicious pie picks are my own.
A gorgeous apron, stainless gold flatware, this adorable tea towel (that pretty much sums up my weekends in the kitchen), these DIY gold cheese labels, this hippo wine stopper and last but not least, a set of copper mixing bowls—the small, medium and large of course.
Can you tell where I’m planning on spending my weekend?
