Happy New Year, friends! How did your night end? Did you get to enjoy a cocktail or two? We hope it was memorable.
I suppose since it's the mark of a new year, we should ask if you have any resolutions yet? Besides knocking out a print cookbook (!!!) I don't think we have anything set in stone. But, I can never shake the idea of January being a "blank slate" month for my diet.

Wow. It's over.
I never cease to be amazed when another year ends, marveling at how fast it went by, how many things were accomplished, left undone, and how a whole new year lies before us just waiting to be consumed.

Hey friends! How was your Christmas?
Did you eat lots of food? Receive any gifts you'd been hoping for? Watch any cheesy Christmas movies?

It's simple, creamy, savory and healthy because there's veggies, right? I suspect this was one of those dishes that my mom used to sneak more greens into our diets, despite our suspicion ... Read More →
When I was in college I was the queen of snacks. I was away from home or my dorm 90% of the time, so I had to rely on quick meals to get me through the day, granola bars being one of my favorites.
Granola bars were granola bars, as far as I was concerned. That was, until I discovered the Larabar. Simple ingredients, naturally sweetened, amazing flavors - I was hooked after one bite of the apple ... Read More →
It's about that time for holiday parties galore, and for that, you need a dip! If I'm invited to your gathering, this is definitely the one I'm bringing.
I take my appetizers seriously. ... Read More →
Did you ever think a cake made with whole wheat flour, flax seed and grated apples could taste so amazing you'd want three slices? Well, that's exactly what's happening here. Let's do this! ... Read More →
