Lemon Kale Broccoli Soup

Lemon Kale Broccoli Soup

Spring is in the air – which is a strange thing to find yourself saying in the middle of February in the Midwest – but it’s been 60 degrees and sunny for 3 days, and it seems the whole neighborhood has spring fever.  The park across the street from my apartment has been full of people for the…

Simple Vegetable Soup

Simple Vegetable Soup

This past Friday, I took advantage of a rare afternoon off, and spent some time puttering around in the kitchen.  I’ve never really worked from a recipe for soup – I usually just throw whatever vegetables I have in the fridge into a pot, and it generally turns out alright.  But this time, I decided to pay a…

Festive Christmas Cranberry Sauce

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year, and one of the things I love most about this season is the variety of scents – especially the yummy ones from the kitchen!  Nothing quite beats the smell of sugar cookies, cinnamon, and pine.

Meet Happy

Thanks so much for visiting Simple Felicity! My name is Happy. I have an amazing talent for misplacing my keys, a deep appreciation for whomever looked at the coffee bean and thought, "Hey, I wonder what would happen if I roasted this?", and road trips to Michigan are pretty much my favorite.

Simple Felicity is, at its heart, a blog based on the unshakeable belief that happiness really isn't all that complicated. Sometimes finding it can be - but happiness itself is pretty simple, and it's often found in the simplest of things: good food, good books, and good company. So those are the things I write about, along with a few other things that really matter to me, including faith and femininity.

Contact me anytime at simplefelicity7 (at) gmail (dot) com! I'd love to hear from you.
