A healthy and quick breakfast! On my Friday’s off, I enjoy experimenting with new breakfast ideas. Today was no exception, but it had to be quick. Tomorrow I’m running a 5 mile race, so I needed to have time this morning to pre-cook my breakfast for tomorrow (my buckwheat pancakes). I had developed an idea sparked by tortillas I bought ...

Personal Pizzas Made to Order on the Grill in a Jiffy! I was craving something a little bit different on Saturday. We had a late (second) breakfast after my 5k, but March Madness has hit (Go Heels!), and we needed something we could do relatively quickly and on the early side. As it was such a beautiful day outside, grilling sounded ...

Week 12: Blueberry Spelt Muffins and Das Boot! My personal training focus this week has shifted from my previous weeks of training. Healing is now my primary focus! Last week I mentioned how I’ve been temporarily grounded from my training by my podiatrist due to tendinitis in my posterior tibial tendon (left ankle). Well, I’ve taken his advice to heart ...

Breaking Records and Feeling Sore! It’s been an interesting and tiring week in our household…our schedule pretty much has been: work, run, eat, sleep, repeat! The run part has finally started taking a bit more of a toll on my body, as has allergy season, which has hit me with full impact. We also were breaking records, both Mark and ...

Back on the Rig…and a Tasty Frozen Yogurt Recipe Last week I described how my work took me offshore to a drilling rig in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico…and how I quickly discovered, they weren’t ready to start drilling and was sent home again. Well, I’m back on the rig, and guess what? They still aren’t ready to ...

Week 7: Out and Back…Trials and Tribulations of the Oil Field (Plus another Bake Sale…) I apologize for the late posting this week. I spent most of my week this week traveling, to and from New Orleans and to and from a drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. It was my first time offshore, and it ended pretty quickly ...

Getting Back to Basics Bake Sale and Another Milestone Accomplished! This week was broken up a bit by a four-day weekend for me for Labor Day (which Mark unfortunately had to work), but with Mark away, it gave me an excellent opportunity to “Labor over Labor Day” to bake for my “Monday Bake Sale” (Tuesday this week for obvious reasons…). ...

Seemingly Odd Flavors Meld Well for this Summer Lasagna… For some time now, I’ve been batch cooking every Sunday that I can so I can have lots of variety in my leftovers for lunch each week at work. I’ve finally decided that I’m going to do a weekly Sunday batch cooking post, for my “Batch Cooking Sunday’s”! This week’s Batch ...

A Perfectly Light Summer Meal…(and Happy Mother’s Day…Lots of Love to my Momma!) Finally…getting to post this wonderful recipe I developed before experiencing our nightmare of the past few weeks… A few weeks ago, I was thinking that I really wanted baked ziti or baked penne (same difference in my book), but I didn’t want it with plain spaghetti sauce ...

A Healthy Take on the Stuffed Pepper… Mark had to work on Easter Sunday, so we had our Easter dinner on Saturday…That left Sunday’s dinner up in the air. It was a beautiful day outside, so I wanted to spend a good chunk of the day enjoying it, so that left little time for actual dinner making/prep. I had a ...
