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 ...

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 ...

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…). ...

Peanut Butter Cookies Get a Makeover! A bit over a month ago, we had our housewarming party. One of the recipes that got great reviews from ourselves and our guests was my adaptation on peanut butter cookies! I had a friend who was attended that party that is celiac, thus I wanted to be sure I was able to accommodate ...

Breaking in our New House with a Good Old Fashioned Party… So, we are well on our way to putting together our new house. We now have phone (like it matters in this day and age), DSL (matters), and cable (but not yet strong enough for digital…), and even a few curtains up (custom curtains = serious $$$)! Part of ...

A “Good Kind of Different” for your next Oatmeal Cookie! I love oatmeal raisin cookies… When I was a kid, my grandmother always had oatmeal raisin cookies waiting for us! She was diabetic, so it was what she felt comfortable making with her dietary needs. I miss those days, she passed over 10 years ago, but I still remember those ...

My Birthday in Review Wednesday was my 27th birthday, no foolin’! So, I’ve been MIA for a few days here relaxing and taking a few days off to go to San Antonio for the first time (reviews coming soon). I woke up to my husband finishing up my delicious cinnamon-vanilla-strawberry French Toast! What really made it (and my day) was ...

Mmmmm Chocolate… This week I’m “stuck” in a training class, but have lots of friends around me. One of their birthday’s is tomorrow, and it’s a biggie! So, I emailed her from across the room inquiring what her favorite baked good was. She replied, “chocolate anything”. So, I had been wanting to try a recipe from Eggless Cooking that looked ...

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 ...
