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 ...

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 ...

Fake Mousse is Better than No Mousse at All… I must admit, this is not one of my tastiest or most creative recipes…but it gets the job done on cooling you down on a hot summer day! Last week we had a lot of raspberries around, as they were on sale at the grocery store and couldn’t pass up a ...

Where 3-Course Breakfasts Come Standard…as does Relaxation! For my birthday weekend (and in part to celebrate our upcoming 2nd anniversary), we went to San Antonio for a few days of R&R at a B&B, Inn at Craig Place. What drew us to this inn was it’s location (near downtown, but not on Riverwalk) and it’s advertisement of a 3-course breakfast ...

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 ...

Trying to Answer the Age Old Question…Does Strawberry Milk Come From Strawberry Cows??? Okay, so maybe that question will never be answered…but I did get a kick out of that cow! But…last Saturday the hubby and I had the pleasure of hopping down to Poteet, TX from San Antonio to check out the “world famous” Poteet Strawberry Festival. I’m not ...

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 ...
