Carrot Cake Oatmeal Bars

This is a classic story of my busyness getting in the way of my midfullness. I have a client who was wanting some different ways to mix up oatmeal, so I quickly sent him a few recipe links (not my recipes) for baked oatmeal, oatmeal smoothies, etc. I would almost never send someone a recipe […]

The Spiralizer Craze Is Here!

Do you own a spiralizer yet? If not, run to the store and grab one. The word came up as a misspelled word as I wrote this post, with no suggestions to change it, it’s that new. Well, I take that back. A number of years ago my husband bought me the kitchen gadget that […]

Trying The New Cooking Sites

I love to cook and be in my kitchen, but that doesn’t mean everyone else does.  Granted, I went to cooking school and grew up with some very influential home chefs. I also have a crew at home – three hungry teenagers and a husband – so cooking for the five of us makes a […]

Even though we have had a very mild winter in CT, still, it’s starting to feel long and drawn out. And we haven’t even started March Madness yet (BIG in my house, read here).The other day, we had a thunderstorm so bad that it knocked power out of my  house for whole day. It’s February. […]

Is Red Meat Really All That Bad For You?

If you’ve been following me for a while you might have gotten the hint that I am not a big red meat eater. But come winter, I start to crave slower cooked stews, long simmering soups, and dishes with more beef or lamb than I am normally used to.  I write this off as a […]

Eating Under Holiday Duress

I don’t know a single person who is immune from holiday stress. About a month ago I wrote about starting the holidays with a healthy bang (see Turkey Tips and Secrets if you didn’t get to it) so you would be armed with a few thoughtful words of wisdom to take with you to parties and […]
