Sausage and cucumbers. Together?

I know I’ve got the category Foodie Friday. And I know I’ve tagged this post in it… But it couldn’t wait. This was just too yummy to keep to myself any longer (I made it two weeks ago). Just because you’re pregnant, doesn’t mean you have to listen to everyone out there who thinks you […]

Quinoa Fried Rice.

In the midst of all the insanity that is often known as my life, the only other thing that calms my mind and body as much as the gym is cooking. Normally this time of year, with school sports in a lull and waiting for the Spring seasons to start, I have limitless amounts of […]

That eating thing.

Oh where to start with this one? There is so much to say, and no clear “Start” line, so let’s just fire off that gun and get going… First, there are two sides of the fence here. The one side that says you have to eat three square meals a day. Then the other that […]

Clean eating: Tex Mex Alfredo Pasta & Chicken.

Now, let me start this off by saying, after my experience with cottage cheese brownies, I’m very skeptical of anything made with cottage cheese. Anything. But, I really wanted to try a new Alfredo sauce, and happened to find at The Gracious Pantry (of course, where else would I find it?) a recipe for Tex […]

It’s a moose thing.

Growing up in Maine, wild game is a dietary staple. If you don’t hunt, you know someone who does. You have a friend who happened to tag a few deer that season and gives you a little meet. Or a kindly neighbor brings you a shopping bag full of moose meat. That last one is […]

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I’ve got about four or five blogs that have been waiting in the wings for my recuperation from walking pneumonia. Waiting for me to be able to keep my eyes open long enough to pound them out. Today marks Day #1 of feeling well enough to meet the task, and blog #1 of what’s been […]

Protein ba-no, wait, pucks.

If you’re like me, you probably cringe when you’re standing in the “healthy” aisle of your local grocer while reading the ingredients list of that wall of protein and energy bars before you. You might, like I do, sometimes, pull out your phone and start scanning them, seeing how they fare on Fooducate. The verdict? […]

Gluten free pizza dough.

I have, for years now, I have been trying to figure out if I have a gluten intolerance or not. It’s been quite a battle that, if I had better health insurance, could have been solved a looooooot sooner. And, it figures that by the time I get good insurance, I’ve pretty much figure it […]

Best Protein Pancakes you’ll ever eat.

My biggest weakness is a tall stack of French toast and a heaping plate of bacon. After changing my eating habits, it became my go-to cheat meal quite a bit. When I was younger, my mother would sometimes make “Brinner” (breakfast for dinner) and I would be on cloud nine. I love pancakes well enough, […]

Balsamic & Basil Vinaigrettes

In the summer time, I’m a big light flavor person. When I indulge in a beer, it’s a light beer (Sam Adam’s Porch Rocker comes to mind…). And I like things that are simple, quick and easy to throw together and toss on the grill. Chicken and pork are always my go-to’s for meal prep […]
