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…

Mango meet Arugula

There’s something about the mix of mango, arugula and spinach that never ceases to amaze me. It is fresh, clean, bright and of course green 🙂 It is also delicious. I sometimes chow down on a giant bowl of this at my desk. And believe me when I say chow down, I mean CHOW down….

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)…

Green and Red-Back on Track?

As you know I’ve been feeling very under the weather for the past week or so.  My body decided that it didn’t care what I wanted, it wanted what it desired.  By this week’s aches and pains I’m still not entirely sure what that was, but I’ve decided to give it some peace and not…

Thrilling Thursdays and Chicken Broth

So yesterday was going to be a lovely post on the fantastic things that I ate all day, but since I was still feeling very sick my food for the day wasn’t really all that exciting.

Tuesday Treats-and a comforting soup

So after reading this lady’s AMAZING blog most of Tuesday I decided that I HAD (yes HAD) to go to the grocery store to grab some dark chocolate.  Interesting how viewing post after post of dark  chocolate will do that to you. While our grocery store may not be the “best” place to find organic…

My Squashy Obession

When the first leaves of fall begin their slow decent you can find me at a farm stand or local grocery store wistfully eyeing my favorite produce of the autumn season, squash.   Truth be told, I have an obsession; I become that crazed mad scientist when I get my hands on one, or two or…
