YOUR Top Ten in 2010

Earlier this week, I wrote out a post depicting MY top ten moments in 2010, but I also wanted to do a top ten in 2010 of YOUR favorites.(Hey, the next time we can do “top ten’s ___10 isn’t for another thousand years!) Based on comments and pageviews, these were your favorite Running Around Normal […]

Ricotta Gnocchi with Brown Butter Sauce

Gosh I love ricotta cheese. There was a time in my life when I ate it like I do Greek yogurt now. I need to revisit those times. I was actually having a little rendezvous with some ricotta cheese in a bowl, when an idea came to mind – ricotta bites! Or, apparently more well-known, […]

Tell Me Your Secrets

Do Vitatops count as dessert? That’s what I’ve been having lately a couple hours after dinner. It satisfies my sweet tooth without downing a huge bowl of ice cream with a cookie on top! Winner winner vita dinner! However, know what I had a fierce craving for yesterday? One of those chocolate chipper cookies from […]

Grain of the Week: Red Quinoa + A Deliciously Healthy Quinoa Bowl

There was a time when I didn’t love quinoa. I tried and tried, but no avail. Finally I figured it out – make sure your quinoa is clean-wah! 😉 Quinoa only takes 10-15 minutes to cook, but I hate having to rinse it before cooking. The seeds stick everywhere! That’s why I was super excited […]

Relaxation Battery is Fully Charged

Last night I caved and had some suga suga:  Jessica’s cake batter bark But that’s OK – I lasted all day until after dinner, so that’s progress, and I’m fine with that 😀 I decided today that I’d finally head back to the BIC for work this morning. I haven’t been there since the week […]

2011: Goal, Set, Match

Look! Progress!         This was my afternoon snack. Frozen cherries – with a little cocoa powder sprinkled over them.   Yep, I even got in the habit of eating dessert after lunch in the past few weeks! Small victories, friends. Small victories 😀  Can you believe it’s freaking December 27th?? The year 2011 will be […]

Pass (on) the Sugar Banana Oat Cake

This past month, you could say I may have overdone it on the sweets. Not to worry, it’s typical. Sugar leads to more sugar and pretty soon I have a full fledged addiction. It happens every year. But then, almost as cued, every year a few days after Christmas, I wean myself off. That time […]

Five Minute Fries to Fuhgettabout Christmas

I’m still in denial that Christmas is over. After the gym this morning, I was still blasting Glee’s Christmas album in my car on the way to Target to score on some post-Christmas deals. Until next year, pretty paper… However, I’m pretty sure I’m more than OK with not having a plethora of Christmas cookies […]

Merry Swedish Christmas!

With only a couple minor snafu’s…   A blizzard, which caused us to be at least an hour late – to each Christmas Eve celebration (except church!) made for a very white, but very travel-cautious day. A territorial, excitement overloaded pup, who actually bit me put a damper on my mood for a while. And […]

Christmas Eve’s Pasts

Merry Christmas Eve!! I can’t believe it – I logged nine…NINE (!!) hours of sleep last night. Shane logged eleven. Guess the beer-as-big-as-my-head-that-I-couldn’t-finish + the white russian “dessert” during HIMYM (obsessed with this show…it’s awesome 😉 ) really did me in. A few ways this Christmas Eve differs from those in the past: On Christmas […]
