Peaches and Cream Protein Shake

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

I was having a hard time with the idea of choking down another combination of protein, peanut butter and bananas. You can only dress those up so many ways. This combination was light and tasty, and a welcome change of pace. Peaches and Cream Protein Shake 1 Scoop vanilla protein powder (I enthusiastically recommend Jay […]

Perfect Baked Brown Rice

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

Brown rice, while more healthy and nutritious than it’s white counterpart, is a serious pain to cook. Even when using a rice cooker I’ve had it come out tough and not cooked through. It takes ages on the stove and the hassle had me avoiding it completely for quite some time. When I started baking […]

How to make iced green tea that’s NOT bitter

Monday, February 25th, 2013

The health benefits of green tea are widely known, and have been for centuries. I’m sure I don’t have to sell you on why it’s good for you. Especially if you’re trying to drop a few LB’s, sipping on green tea is a particularly good idea- it has no calories (if unsweetened!) and gives your […]

Easy German Pancakes

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

This delicious dish is a traditional German breakfast, particularly for special occasions like Christmas! I was delighted making this dish this morning, as I had forgotten how EASY it is. And really, it’s not that bad for you. Since I was lacking a cast iron skillet, I opted to make Mini German Pancakes, and I […]

Recipe: Bob Harper’s Chicken Salad

Friday, June 29th, 2012

How can that this entire beautiful, bountiful plate of food only have 300 calories? I wasn’t even able to eat the whole thing. That’s weird, because I have no problem putting away a half pint of Ben & Jerry’s if left to my own devices. Fiber, people! Fiber, and lean, low fat protein. Healthy carbs. […]

Gardening with Confidence: SproutRobot

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Plants want to grow; it’s how they’re engineered. I don’t have a degree in Biology, but I did take a Horticulture class that year I was on scholastic probation. So, I feel credible in giving that first statement. We’ve been consistent gardeners for several years now, from small containers to raised beds. Typically I plant […]

Pinterest Test Kitchen- Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Well, we know how my last pinterest attempt went (read: Pinterest Fail) This one went a lot better! It was a Sunday, and I wanted a little indulgent yet easy brunch. I popped some canned cinnamon rolls on the waffle press and voila! It was fantastic. I had some leftover glaze from some Pizza Hut […]

TheTeaSpot.com Review

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Please note: This post was not sponsored. Just sharing a great experience! I am very simply a coffee addict. This in itself isn’t that big of a problem, but the fact that my coffee is more cream and sugar than anything else is causing my waistline to pay the price. Any time I need to […]

Food: Red Velvet Cookies

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

I whipped up a batch of cake batter cookies and experimented with Red Velvet cake mix and white chocolate chips. Let me just say… SHUT UP. These were so good, I’m fighting all urges to eat the entire pan of them. Plus, they’re crazy easy. Consider these if you need a hostess gift at any […]

Food- Easiest Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

With my new job taking up so much time, I absolutely appreciate recipes that are quick, easy or able to be made ahead. These days I’m much less Martha and way more Sandra Lee. A twitter friend posted about “cake mix cookies” the other day, and I was instantly intrigued. Turns out, they’re not only ridiculously easy, […]
