For nearly everyone I know, February is their least favorite month (even my sis, and it’s her birthday month!).
By the time February rolls around, the excitement of starting a new year has worn off and so has the novelty of snow…and the need to constantly bundle up and chug soup to stay warm. Green grass, leafy trees, and color in general are still a long way off and everything just seems kind-of blah.
I’ve got something that’s full of excitement and energy to warm you up on a cold February day…how about a chat with Denise Austin, some fabulous fitness motivation, and her recipe for Tomato-Basil Turkey Burgers? (more…)

Something I’ve realized about myself is that I just about always defer to making food from scratch. (more…)

When Mike and I can’t agree on dinner, I like to cook “his” and “hers” style.
Sometimes it’s completely different meals, like spaghetti with homemade beef ragu for him and fish or chicken with a side of veggies (preferably roasted) for me.

So, the other day I walked into the bathroom and found the entire contents of the medicine cabinet strewn into the sink. Makeup, deodorant, toothpaste, medicine. It wasn’t pretty. (more…)

Not too long ago, I made a huge batch of bison, bean, and vegetable soup. It was, if I do say so myself, pretty fabulous.
Naturally, I completely expected my hubby not to like it. (more…)
