It’s Smoothie Season!

When life spirals out of control… you buy smoothies. Hi, friends, it’s been awhile. It hasn’t been a lack for anything to say, it’s been more of a lack of time. In October, my office moved about 15 miles north, and my in-office schedule changed. My position changed slightly, with my duties being focused more […]

Tasty Tuesday: Cinnamon Raisin muffins, uh, I mean bread.

I don’t even know who I am anymore. There. I said it. I baked. AGAIN. Like I said, I don’t know who I am. It all started with about a hundred of those little tiny raisin boxes floating around my son’s snack basket (he’s been a raisin fiend for the past month), and shifted one […]

Tasty Tuesday: Pumpkin apple bread.

When you have a kid that just doesn’t have the ability to leave a pumpkin behind… you have to improvise. And given just how many pie pumpkins I’ve had to buy this year because of my whole “well, we can leave it out for decoration for a little bit, then cook it” leave nothing to […]

Tasty Tuesday: Quick Apple Bread.

I always feel like I need to preface ANY blog entry I do that is baking related: I’m not a baker. I’m still trying to work on it. Give me cooking any day, but baking – I can surely leave it behind. This past Sunday was definitely a clear reminder as to why. The night […]

Fall Tastes Tuesday: Chocolate Chip Pumpkin (Cake) Cookies.

It was still well over 90°F outside, with humidity percentages that made the air feel like a lead weight upon your chest, when we brought our first pumpkin of 2018 home from the store. One of our “larger” grocery stores supports our local farmers in a big way – which is pretty much one of […]

Tasty Tuesday: Double Chocolate PB Protein Cookies.

Why, oh why does everything in the world have coconut in some shape or form in it nowadays? I swear it’s the hardest allergy to navigate in the “coconut solves everything!” mindset of today. I’ve had to change lotions and sunscreens a million times, because by the time I find one coconut free, after I […]

Tasty Tuesday: Protein Cookies.

If you’ve been around for awhile, you know my ever-long dilemma of finding good, tasty treats, packed with protein – but not the kind of carbs you consume on Thanksgiving day like so many of the pre-made high protein options on the store shelves. It’s a battle. There’s a lot of great efforts out there. […]

Zucchini, zucchini everywhere.

Summer time. Although the weather here these past few days would have you feeling otherwise, it’s still the season of Summer, and it’s slowly winding down. Just a few weeks until the calendar turns to the Autumn season and it becomes all things spice, pumpkin – and crockpot. It wasn’t until this year that I […]

Happy Accident: Hello Fresh.

We had our annual summer break last week, and summer decided to finally make its landing at the same time. Ten glorious days, nine of them sun-filled and balmy. The last thing that I wanted to do was shop, and even more lastly, plan dinner. I figured that I’d just wing the week and if […]

“Hello”, Tasty Tuesday.

I’ve fallen off the wagon. I’ve taken a tumble out of my seat and right over the side of the wagon, hitting the ground as that wagon keeps rolling on by. What wagon have I fallen off of? Well… a few to be honest here. Blogging for starters. The small amount of time I have […]
