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 ...

Quick and Tasty Soup for a Light Lunch! On Thursday, I left work just before lunch in order to get a lot of housework done and get a nap (i.e. attempt to catch up on sleep) after my week on the rig. I had already eaten a piece of the decadent Vegan Mocha Cake I made the evening before, plus ...

After a Week of Frustration and Stress, a Quite Relaxing Sunday Morning! There are a few things that I couldn’t wait for when I moved into my new house. One was being able to sit on the porch on a relaxing Sunday morning with a coffee, breakfast, and NPR. Today, I made that dream come true! I even tried making ...

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 ...

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 Modern Classic with a Healthy Twist Carrot Cake is my all-time favorite cake (except maybe an excellent chocolate Tres Leches). My husband makes an excellent carrot cake that comes directly from the Joy of Baking website. The most unfortunate thing is how much time and effort it takes, and how terrible it is for you (I did the calorie/macronutrient ...

Week 19: Holiday Pains…and Gains Plus a Care-Free Lentil Curry Recipe! This past week seemed to pass very quickly. We kept ourselves very busy with work and holiday activities, and also managed to get some running in too! One of the ways I tend to make my life easier during the week is taking the time to prepare a large ...

Fun to Make with That Special Someone in Your Life! Last night was the series finale of Battlestar Gallactica. I decided to make a big sacrifice for my husband, a huge fan, by going with him to the Alamo Drafthouse (best movie theater ever) to watch the finale. We needed to get to the theatre early in order to score ...

Why pay $2 for a ClifBar, when you can make your own for <$1? As an athlete, I really try to get as much protein into my day as possible. I also tend to snack throughout the day to keep my metabolism up. Clif bars can get really expensive and homemade is always better, right? So, I was introduced to ...
