Honestly, people, we don't know why we even bother. We do the very hard work of reading all the blogs and spotting all the hackneyed trends for you, and for what? We've officially lost the war on stripey straws, mason jars, quinoa, and pumpkin spice. ...more
SURPRISE! The blue-haired hippie is a vegan! Who'd have guessed it, right? There are a number of reasons why people go vegan, which is a post for another day, but in this one I'm going to assume you already have your reasons and are ready to take ...more
My husband and I rarely eat dessert but if you opened our pantry you'd find yourself facing a whole shelf of candy. We rarely eat it but if we ever get a late-night craving for Skittles, Nerds, jelly beans or Swedish Fish, we're covered. Don't get me ...more
As a Canadian, I didn't grow up with Girl Scout cookies and I honestly did not understand why my American friends got so excited about them. We have Girl Guides in Canada and they do sell cookies but they aren't really something we get all that excited about. When my American friends talk about Girl Scout cookie it's like they are speaking a different language. Samoas? Tagalongs? What?
I don't have easy access to Girl Scout cookies I turned to the internet to see if I could make any of them at home. Here's what I found.
Let's be honest: asparagus is pretty amazing.First of all, because it grows so quickly and doesn't require pesticides, it is a naturally organic food. It's also high in fiber and packs in only 27 calories per cup. But the real clincher? Asparagus is high in glutathione, an important anti-carcinogen and the most potent anti-cancer antioxidant available.And did we mention that it's simply delicious? Because, you know, it is. Steam it and then toss it in fresh lemon juice for a delicate, invigorating side....more
I tried something called Bang Bang Mahi Mahi a couple of weeks ago when we went out to eat for lunch. Wow! I have craved the flavor that sauce ever since. When I crave something, I have to figure out how to make it. Bang Bang sauce is too good to just put on fish, so I made it into a party dip! This would be amazing for a Super Bowl party, or whenever you need a lick-the-bowl-amazing kind of dip!...more
This recipe is great for anyone who isn't comfortable about tasting liver because the strong taste of the olives and spices mixed with ground beef in the meatballs hides the flavor and texture of liver really well. [Read more]...more
It's difficult to get posts done on a Friday! This past Friday, I woke up early to get in some cardio on the stationary bike before work. After work, my co-workers and I went to Onion Creek to relax after another successful week. By the time I get home and eat dinner, there's no time for a blog post (and almost no one is looking for blogs to read on a Friday night). So here we are...on a Sunday...reading my weekly Paleo Food Friday post!...more

One of my favorite things about living in Mexico City is getting fresh masa from our local tortilleria. There is nothing better than freshly made masa. It doesn’t get much better than fresh masa, does it? ...more
With their delightfully browned, over-the-top poofs, popovers are something you might expect to see on one of those long, deliciously filled tables in the Hogwarts dining hall. I think of popovers as the Rice Krispie treats of savory baking - they taste and look like they took hours of careful work but are surprisingly easy to make. There are just five ingredients - flour, milk, salt, butter and eggs - and three rules to follow ....more
