I mentioned before that I’m attempting hard core workouts at home since I don’t have access to a gym. I really wanted to order the Intensity dvds but unfortunately, didn’t have a couple hundred bucks to spare so I bought a Jillian Michael’s dvd instead: Ripped in 30. I have another one of her dvds and it [...]
Well, I took the plunge. I tried an intimidating recipe today: spider cupcakes. I’ve made cupcakes before but have never done anything “fancy” to them. I’m really good at spreading frosting on them and calling it a day. That, I can do. Design a spider out of the thing? I’m not so sure.
We live [...]
I have been eyeing this recipe for quite some time now. I’m really loving the use of chickpeas in otherwise unhealthy, sugary recipes. It sounds so weird at first, but trust me, you can’t tell! The chickpeas just give these recipes a great texture, the taste is not overbearing at all.
I originally found the [...]
I’ve been meaning to make this recipe for a long time. It’s so simple, healthy, and seems like a great substitute for actual ice cream. Basically the ice cream part stems from a frozen banana. All you really need to do is blend a frozen banana until it has the consistency of ice cream. If [...]
So, I’m officially obsessed with Pinterest. In case you’re not sure what it is, it’s basically a place where you can gather boards of things you like or want. For example, I have a recipe board where I pin recipes I’d like to try. I also have a fitness board with potential workouts, enter: the [...]
I usually keep at least 1 can of pumpkin in the kitchen, I just feel like there is always something I can throw it into. Pumpkin isn’t always easy to find though. The cans stores have are either huge, or pumpkin pie mix, or they don’t have any at all. I admit right now if [...]
I was at a party a couple months back in the Cleve and the hostess served caramelized onions with bison burgers. The entire meal was very gourmet and healthy; it was great! I haven’t taken the plunge and bought bison yet (it’s a little expensive…plus now we have all this antelope meat!) but last night [...]
Well, we made it back in one piece from our hunting/camping adventure. We went to the Southern part of Wyoming which is kind of a different landscape. It’s pretty much completely flat with zero trees, not what you think of when you think of “going camping” but it worked all the same. My husband was [...]
I love salads with candied walnuts or pecans in them. The perfect salad to me has candied walnuts, fruit, and goat cheese; it works every time. I was cooking salmon and butternut squash last night and thought a salad would be great on the side. I was going to swing by the store and buy [...]
So, in case you’re confused by my lifestyle (which I would totally understand) my husband and I have been living in Cleveland for the past 4 months or so. During that time, we stored almost all of our stuff in Dallas since we assumed Cleveland would be temporary. “Almost all of our stuff” included pretty [...]
