I've always prided myself on eating relatively healthy and cooking healthy.  I would have the occasional treat or every now and then, hit up the closest fast food joint on the way home from work because I was too tired to cook. I can remember specific moments...

Okay y’all…here it is! Your weekly dinner menu!  (I can’t believe I’ve done 6 of these already!)  Time flies when you’re having fun! I am really excited about these recipes (I know, I know, what else is new) because these are all MINE! I made them up and I am sharing them with you…these golden nuggets of meal ideas and cooking wisdom J Luckily, or maybe not always luckily, my family gets to be my guinea pigs. I don’t always like searching for recipes because when I have a 15...

At first glance, these may look like ordinary, (healthy of course,) banana muffins. They have all the ingredients a typical banana muffin has (which I bet you’re curious about just what those ingredients are because you know if I make them, they are HEALTHY and TASTY so have no fear – I’ll share the recipe at the end) BUT it’s what they represent, to me, that makes them more than a mid-morning snack. I have always cooked and baked healthy – that’s nothing new. But, what is new, is...

If you look up the definition of Resiliency, this is what you’ll find: the power or ability to return to the original form, position, etc., after being bent, compressed, or stretched 2. ability to recover readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like I am going to boldly argue with this standard definition because in my opinion, that is only half of what this word encompasses. Resiliency is a very powerful, important characteristic that is much more than “returning to the original form” or the “ability to recover from an illness”...

Here is your weekly dinner menu - Round 5!  As always, I'm excited about this week's menu because I LOVE sharing these HEALTHY and TASTY recipes with y'all!  And I LOVE getting messages from people letting me know they have tried these recipes and liked them!! Another reason I'm excited about these?  I got them from a variety of sources this time!  Why is that exciting?  Um...

The other day someone told me, “You seem to have it all together! You’re working part time, dealing with military spouse stuff, getting into shape, eating healthy, training for a 15K race, writing a blog, active on the Moms Club board and are raising 2 kids.  How do you do it?” WOW! What a wonderful thing to hear!  And yes, when put like that, I kind of sound awesome, like Super-Woman awesome… However, while I appreciate this compliment more than I can say, it’s far from the truth!  It was...

  Here is another week of dinners for you…all planned out…all you have to do is go to the grocery store, buy the ingredients and cook them. Come on now, I can’t do everything for you! I probably say this every time (there’s just something that really lights my fire when I’m able to share TASTY and HEALTHY meals) but I’m particularly excited about this week’s meals! There’s not only variety, and deliciousness, of course, but there is creativity and good nutrition! I have something to say about each of these...

I just recently got back from visiting my dear, dear friend in Colorado. She has a 4 month old baby girl and her husband deployed about 6 weeks ago.  I haven’t seen her in a year!  (Which is entirely too long, by the way).  It was time for a girl’s trip!  We had big plans – I mean, wild and crazy – you know, going to brunch (not late breakfast, as she likes to call it because for some reason she abhors brunch), seeing the garden of the...
