Let me start by saying this is awkward to write. I must admit pride, prejudice, and decisions that will seem foolish to many. I must be real about my worries, but not in a self-pity, humble brag kind of way. I’ve rewritten this many times and it seems to fixate way too much on pizza!… [Read More]
Fuel for the body, mind and soul.
In order to live life to the full, the mind, body, and soul must all be nourished. These posts are my recipes, meditations, scriptures, and thoughts-in-process on how to best fuel my life.
I used to sketch and draw perhaps a bit more than your average kid. Big fluffy bangs were “the thang” so I’d draw girls with bangs that stood straight up, high as you could imagine. Mom was always trying to tell me it looked better if I didn’t do that but she was not hip… [Read More]
UPDATE: I’ve added this post to my Favorite Falliday Recipes! Click here to see them all. Recently obsessed with all things ginger, and tiring of the impatient stares from two cans of pumpkin puree, I set out to create a “spicy” pumpkin ginger muffin. I’m pleased enough with my end result after Round 2 to actually… [Read More]
Caring about my food is a newer priority for me (past two years or so). Knowing where my food comes from is now interesting to me. Sometimes fun-interesting. Sometimes scary-interesting. With fall comes apples, pears and pumpkins and many other amazing things that make the winter holidays really tasty. This is a great time to… [Read More]
I hope you had a wonderful long holiday weekend (if you celebrate Labor Day). I have a shameless nephew brag to start off with. J was drinking Giddy Up! (found in a variety beer pack) by the same beer company that makes Fat Tire. My 4 year old nephew wanted to sniff his bottle. One… [Read More]
Like lemonade on a summer day? Or spiked lemonade on a warm summer night? It may be time for a new summer go-to. Try this Cinnamon Greyhound Cocktail and let me know what you think! I love grapefruit. It’s only been in the past two years that I’ve realized how much I love grapefruit! Ours… [Read More]
Continuing in my recipe review mini series, I’m going over chili, shrimp and truffles today! I am going through the Flavor First recipe book by Cheryl Forberg, trying the recipes and letting you know how easy and cost effective it is to make them. I’m really new to home-cooking, so I’m hoping to learn real… [Read More]
If you want to know how to cook great food, find a great chef. If you want to eat healthy food, find a good dietician. Who do you go to when you want both? Cheryl Forberg. I briefly talked about Cheryl in this post [click to read real quick]. Cheryl is an award-winning chef with… [Read More]
Why do they call preserving food in sealed glass jars “canning”? Shouldn’t it be “jarring”? There’s a lot of things I don’t understand about old-timey practices. The good news is, the ancient preservation arts of our not-at-all-distant ancestors are alive and well! I took a canning class recently. With the dream of a future abundant… [Read More]
Soooo, the title of this post is a little misleading. These things are more NEW TO ME than being actually NEW-new. Either way, it is good to see what’s out there in health and fitness. You gotta try funky things sometimes to make life spicy, you know? These are all things I saw at IDEA… [Read More]
