Lighter Deviled Eggs Two Ways: Thai Red Curry and Wasabi

Easter is by far one of my favourite holidays, and not just because of the egg decorating! It’s a time of new life, awakening and newness–just the line of thinking we need after the awful, awful winter we just had. Long before the Easter bunny came hopping along, eggs were given as gifts on Easter Sunday to commemorate rebirth and the end of Lent. What a treat that must’ve been after the forty egg-free days leading up to Easter! ...more

Another year has come and gone.  I am one year older. I have run the gambit on birthdays. From the child’s excitement of being a year older, to the teens waiting for 18 so I could be grown. Then waiting for 21. Remember? At 21, everything was going to be all right because I could do what I want. Growing up is overrated. ...more

Thoughtfulness Thursday: E's Second Birthday Party

I'm not sure if you know this about me, but I'm a crazy party planner. As we enter April, I have already planned E's 3rd (yes, THIRD) birthday. As that thought process is about to come to fruition (with his party next week), we can reflect on his second birthday (which was posted on Hostess with the Mostess on July 1...BTW that's a big deal and I might have screamed when I heard!)....more

Will the Holiday Meal Knock You Off-Course?

Heading to an Easter banquet table (or two) this weekend? We’re going to an all-you-can-eat Easter buffet for lunch on Sunday; it will be my first feasting occasion since recently committing to a healthy eating lifestyle (with the ultimate goal of decreasing my cholesterol) and I’m pretty sure that eggs benedict and fried chicken don’t fit in that plan.  I know a lot of people will say that it’s okay to throw goals out the window for one day, but for me, I truly want to eat healthy that day, not out of sacrifice, but simply out of choosing to “eat to live.”...more
