It’s the middle of February. Classically a time of year when folks lose interest in all their healthy intentions. How are you doing with your healthy goals? One of my ongoing goals is to eat greens in as many meals as possible. To be totally honest, I have realized that this usually means spinach, which […]
I’m going to say what maybe some of you have also thought: Christmas has been making me a little nervous since last January. Christmas is a season of joy and light and life! And cookies. And parties. And desserts. And indulgence with family and friends.
Friends, it’s time for some bitter truth about Thanksgiving. Hang on to your tri-corner hats.
Thanksgiving is next week. It’s next week! How did that happen? My feelings about Thanksgiving have changed pretty significantly since I was a kid.
We recently spent two weeks in Ireland. Ireland is gorgeous, in case you were wondering. Wildflowers are absolutely everywhere, peeking through the cracks in ancient stone walls and clumping along the sides of the roads.

I have a new favorite dessert. Them be fighting words, people. Favorite is a strong statement. It’s almond butter cups. You know, like peanut butter cups, but with almonds. And, surprise! Oats! And coconut oil! And maple syrup! Instead of a dry, crumbly nut center, these cups have an almost cookie-like base with homemade chocolate […]
Remember how I hatched a plot to eat greens at every meal? Yeah…desserts kind of got in the way of that healthy plan. But you know, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and I am still trying to focus on the greenery as much as possible! So this month for the Secret Recipe Club challenge, […]
