I want to declare my love for this banana bread in some sort of outrageous way.

Hmmm maybe I will call Oprah and ask her if I can come jump on her couch like Tom Cruise do when he proclaimed his love for Katie Holmes? Probably not advisable. After all this bread is certainly Scientology free and I don’t want people to believe I’m nuts. Plus there is no way toRead more

So I know, zucchini isn’t really in time of year in January; it’s even more of a summertime vegetable. However, I purchased a few the other day before vacation because they were pretty inexpensive at the supermarket AND because I was planning on producing stuffed zucchini. Well, of course things never move as prepared and I never had the opportunity to use them up before I still left.

Admittedly, I really like baking with zucchini simply because Personally i think it eliminates the necessity for excess oil or butter in recipes. Typically the zucchini provides plenty of moisture to slice most fat in two and add extra dietary fiber and nutrition. Shortly I’ll find a way to incorporate it into some gluten freeRead more

Vegetarian stuffed poblano peppers packed with salsa, special potato, corn and black coffee beans. Easy, minimal substances and HEALTHY!

We spent Christmas in Minnesota with some of my children members. Truthfully, I didn’t reply emails or pay attention to my site for a second. The only thing I did was cradle in by the wood-burning fireplace, bake cookies, chop vegetables and chuckle until I couldn’t any more. Most of this was due to wines,Read more

Now that March is officially right here, I’m hoping we can expect warmer weather. Not that our winter continues to be anything but moderate, but I still prefer spring weather. There’s nothing I’m craving a lot more than waking up a little past due on a Saturday morning, getting brunch at a fresh restaurant in the city, after that strolling around with Tony for all of those other day. Mostly we head to antique shops or bookstores, or sometimes end up food shopping at Investor Joe’s. In any event, I always celebrate moving, eating and taking pleasure in ‘us’ time.

Here’s finished . though, and I hate to be the one to break it to you, but we’re bound to involve some type of chilly climate this month sooner or later. You understand, it’s a very predictable Midwest thing; nice one day and snowing the next. When that second comes, you’ll have this great chiliRead more

Last night We asked Tony what his favorite cake was and he responded with We don’t know.

Ummmm pardon me? How do you not know what your favorite wedding cake is? For me personally cake all hangs within the occasion. For example, on birthdays I favor a rich, moist chocolate wedding cake strictly for the chocolate buttercream. For the rest, I choose carrot wedding cake. Carrot cake is like the Jennifer AnistonRead more

I have to say, we had an extremely exciting weekend because…

I’ve stated this a million times and I’ll state it once again: I actually freaking like muffins. I make sure they are at least once weekly for quick on the run breakfasts or snack foods. (In the event that you check out my muffin archives , you’ll find over 20 beautiful, healthy muffin formulas.) NowRead more

Green Goddess Smoothie + my favorite areas in Grand Rapids, Michigan

The beginning of January hit a couple weeks ago which smoothie was completely rotation as my breakfast of choice. In all honesty, I love smoothies all the time of your day during each time of year. Not only are smoothies delicious, however they give you the capability to pack a lot of nourishment into oneRead more

Chocolate Drizzled Bacon Peanut Butter Caramel Corn zero corn syrup!

I know today is supposed to be Wellness Wednesday, but I’m taking a small break before New Year. No worries – I’ll be back in a few days with a fresh WW post; I understand I’ve been away for a while! I’m guessing we all probably have. This season is such an excellent time toRead more

However her wallet was stolen while we were out shopping. Tis the growing season for thieving? Ugh! A whole lot worse, she acquired some pretty important documents in there. But the good news can be that people got her back again on the airplane safe and sound (without an ID)! I assume the TSA understands even more about you than you imagine.

Now I’m ready to return on track regarding eating, working out and function. I haven’t exercised in weekly because I’ve been fighting a significant chest infection (roughly I believe). I cannot really sleep at night because my coughing continues me up. No matter just how much ZzzQuil I chug, it’s still there. I believe IRead more
