Life/Post Surgery-Things always get better

In recent months I’ve been in pain, stressed and just overwhelmingly tired. Surgery, while not as bad as I feared was also not a cakewalk (haha you see what I did there…).***I look shockingly happy in this picture…go nerve blocker! What they did: My awesome orthopedic surgeon sent me on fabulous vacation to NH (conducted…

It’s the most “Food-afull” time of the year!

Well it certainly has been a busy time of year.  I’m not sure where the time ran off to, but I can say I’ve felt myself trying to catch up.  Doesn’t mean I haven’t been cooking though!  A girl has to eat (and eat well I might add). The months of November and December have…

Figs, Figs and my love of Crostinis

Figs.  How did I never know these could be so wonderful?  Back in the 90’s my knowledge of figs was confined to one product in particular, Fig Newtons.  And being a 90’s rebel you can guess they were not on the top of my snacking list.  However, as I grew (hardly, maybe a few inches)…

Tuesday Treats-and a comforting soup

Yoga, release your inner goddess…not duck

When I first heard of people doing yoga I wasn’t at all sure what it was or if I would like it. (A downward what????) I’d buy books, dvds and even viewed specialized programs. However, it was always just a temporary phase I’d go through and sooner than later I’d forget it even existed. In the…

Get your tea on

Refreshing, comforting, spicy, sweet or iced. I can’t even place a number on how many different types of teas exist. Black, green, red, white and decaffeinated; whatever your style or taste I guarantee somewhere out there is a tea for you. I used to drink tea only on occasion. About five years ago I discovered…

Kitchen Savvy

Some people are good at sports, some at math, others at politics.  While I will never be an Olympic athlete, solve complex Calculus, or be able to keep up with the ever changing political debates I will tell you one thing; I can most definitely cook.
