Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a team of people in the same boat as you telling you about their journey and giving you tips and love for stuff you already know you should be doing?
This Hot Tuscan Chicken Salad got lost in the move from my old site to this one, but thanks to a friend, it is again found! I have added the nutritional information. To save carbohydrates and calories, use 3/4 cup ramekins (or a big casserole dish) and divide out servings that way. I’m a cheap
My #1 tip for staying healthy while traveling… Hostel it. It has to be said before you start thinking I’m crazy for making the suggestion – there are actually some really great hostels out there. Clean kitchens, great beds, awesome people, and many of them are family friendly, too. You’ll
I used to journal all the time. It helped me process. Especially in high school when boyfriend problems were a huge deal, you hated your mother, and who gets to ask who to the winter formal dance was high drama. A girl's got to get through those hard times. Journaling made thoughts and feelings seem
I’m still having a love affair with my Vitamix. Good lord someone save me! I have also been having a love affair with asparagus. It’s my favorite vegetable and was on sale last week, score! I only paid $1.49 a pound! I cannot resist a good sale so I picked up 5 pounds. Maybe a little overkill bu
Fruits and vegetables make up the largest part of the food pyramid, yet I forget about them just about every day. I can’t stand most vegetables, so I’m not likely to eat a big salad or something like that. I love fruits, but I still somehow forget to eat them regularly. Since I’m trying (e
10 recipes for spring with a brand new carrot-fruit smoothie to finish things off! Early spring is a funny time around here for seasonal eating. The winter farmers’ market is coming to a close and there is still a good month and a half until the summer market starts back up. It’s this wei
Can I just tell you how much fun it is to take photos of food in a kitchen that actually has windows! When purchasing my home, one of my favorite aspects about it was the open layout and how much light came into the house - which was something I certainly didn't have in my old apartment. Not.
Sitting down to a complete breakfast meal is a bit of a challenge for me. See, my morning ritual involves waking up at 6:30AM while constantly slamming on the snooze button, leaving me to wake up at 7:00AM. By then, I’m obviously so late to work, yet I still check my email, my blog comments, m
Hello from sunny Florida! At least I hope it's going to be sunny. We just landed a little bit ago and it's currently still dark outside. I'm already loving the warm weather though! Our only problem is that our cruise doesn't leave until 4 pm this afternoon, so we've got quite a bit of time to kill.
Zucchini is suddenly turning up in everything and reminding me once again just how under-appreciated this slender green vegetable really is. From quick breads to salads, to frittatas to soups, zucchini is the star of the summer months and making my taste buds jump for joy.
There are plenty of ways to sneak in extra fruits and veggies: banana pancakes, zucchini bread, pumpkin muffins. I got these two flavors of Naked Juice to try for this post, so I thought I’d see how I could use them in a different kind of snack, although they’re delicious on their own. Each
Here’s a lovely mixed salad with tomatoes, asparagus and anchovies; do you feel up to? Apart from cooking asparagus, you will prepare this salad very quickly. You don’t have to put too much salt because of the anchovies. With such an easy dish you’ll be able to save time to enjoy your evening
Who doesn’t love pancakes? There’s a way to make them without the guilt, bloating, or hunger that comes shortly after they’re gone.
Once out of the oven the cauliflower and olive mixture is punctuated by a briny dose of capers as I hover impatiently nearby waiting for it to cool enough to pick at a few pieces. Top it with a shower of vibrant chopped parsley and a handful of toasted walnuts and it’s ready to devour. Read m
Oh my God, it’s beautiful! Here is a beautiful cauliflower, basil and parmesan cake. There is an air of Italy, and as you know, I melt completely as soon as I read or hear the words “parmesan and basil” . Concerning proportions, I advise you to prepare this cake when you have guests at home. I
