Why Not Wednesday: Protein Granola Bars

I have forever been on a mission to make myself a better snack. One where I don’t have to give (re: compromise) too much, if anything at all. Remember my protein hockey pucks? Yeah, those babies steered me off the path of making my own snacks for a bit. I think I finally ended up […]

For the (not so) love of Oatmeal.

One of the things that has happened in my adult life is an interest in trying new foods. I’ve tasted, and fallen in love with foods from all over the world. Some foods, that if you told my 18-year old self a decade and a half ago that I’d enjoy – I’d have laughed at […]

Tasty Thursday: Spinach Ricotta Cheesy Chicken.

(Let it be noted that that’s probably not the name of this recipe. It came nameless, and it’s the best description of what I made and am passing along the recipe for…) I have an aunt that’s really good at doing one thing with her Facebook… And that’s making me feel like I’m dying a […]

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 […]

Brownies with… cottage cheese?

Let me just start out by saying, I’m honest in my own opinions with my food posts. If I say something is yummy, I mean that with every taste bud on my tongue, I think it really is good. So in all fairness, if I say something is crap, then to me, well… it’s crap. […]
