Valentine’s Day Parfait

Valentine’s Day Parfait

Roses, chocolates, red, pink, hearts, stuffed animals, balloons…these are things that come to mind when I think of Valentine’s Day. And while I think all of these things are great, I don’t typically celebrate Valentine’s Day with commercial products. Roses aren’t exactly my favorite flower, […]

Baked Brie with Cranberries, Pecans, and Honey

Baked Brie with Cranberries, Pecans, and Honey

Baked brie has become on of my favorite indulgences over the past year. Or if I’m being totally honest, any type of baked cheese mixed with fruit is a tasty treat. Brie, however, is my number one. And on New Year’s Eve, it seemed like […]

More Protein, Less Candy

More Protein, Less Candy

That’s what I’m telling myself anyway. Protein is good, candy is bad — right? I mean, it is almost Halloween anyway. And the chocolate just seems to be staring me down every which way I turn. Luckily, the friendly people at NuZest sent me some […]

Ooooh those Girl Scouts are at it again! Tempting me with their Thin Mint cookies. And those are my favorite! Actually, I love anything that’s chocolate and minty. When I was a little girl, I remember visiting my great aunt’s house and finding her box […]

Creamy Coconut Soup

Creamy Coconut Soup

This is a super tasty dish I made a while back. I really wasn’t sure how I would feel about fish in my soup, but it turned out way better than I anticipated! It only takes about 30 minutes to make and fed my family […]

Egg Turkey Muffin Recipe

Egg Turkey Muffin Recipe

Protein, anyone? I often get tired of cooking (heh heh, what mom doesn’t?) and I am always on the lookout for ways to cut down my time in the kitchen. I mean, I LIKE to cook and I LIKE to provide nutritious food for my […]

Roasted Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Roasted Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Ahhh, don’t you just love fall? I like it when the sun is warm but there is a crisp breeze, perfect weather for cozy sweaters, skinny jeans, cute boots…or hoodies and yoga pants. Depends on the day. I enjoy making soups in the fall. It’s […]

Paleo Diet, Day 3

Paleo Diet, Day 3

Woohoo, no headache today!! Today was definitely way easier than the first two days, which I attribute to my body getting over the “sugar flu” and not thinking that it needs so many carbs all day. So here is my day: *Energy & Endurance, Focus […]
