Double Chocolate Brownies

I had a lovely run at the park this morning. I am trying to run consistently so I can get back my running mojo. I seem to lose running steam whenever I don’t do it consistently. I have been spending time at the gym or hiking this past summer and Fall season seems to be […]

Happy Wednesday to you all 🙂 The weather has been cool around here so I find myself craving hot food and savory foods. Of course, I always make room for treats with a side of tea. Here goes this weeks eats… I made a batch of these Coconut {Chickpea} Waffles this past weekend and I’ve been eating […]

Why I Love To Travel

This past summer (and this year in general) has been the best of times. Having returned from a month long travel, both for our destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and for our honeymoon, island hopping in the Philippines…..I wanted to talk (and put into writing) about why I love to travel and why I always […]

{Japanese Style} Curry House

IMG_2111.jpg

Cu-cu-curry House we went. Curry House is a Japanese-style Curry and Spaghetti Restaurant. They are known for their great tasting curries and huge serving entrees. I’ve never seen so many variety of curries. You can choose between beef, vegetable, chicken and seafood curries. We haven’t been to this restaurant for a long time (more than […]

Healthified Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

IMG_2155.jpg

It has been awhile since I’ve made muffins. So long that I forgot the last time I made them and searched the blog and see the last time I used my muffin tin. Can I just say how great it is to use keywords and search for certain things that have happened in your life […]

Coconut (Chickpea) Waffles

With my love for all things coconut, I have to admit that using coconut flour has been a hit or miss for me. I’m trying to start collecting “hit” recipes. I have a bag of coconut flour in my pantry that I was so excited to use when I first purchased it. I once made a mistake […]

Purple Cakes and Graduation

IMG_1723.jpg

It’s a proud day for my family. My younger sister is now a licensed Dental Hygienist. I walked in the door to her graduation festivities and was greeted with colorful cupcakes. Free desserts at a graduation? Her school is great. I think that it is ironic they offer sweet offerings during a dental event. I ate […]

Go Green – Vega Breakfast Challenge

IMG_3496.jpg

Whenever I run early in the morning, I find myself getting hungry for a snack before lunch. I’ll have my normal oatmeal breakfast, have a snack bar mid morning and a late lunch. I would rather have higher calorie and nutrient dense breakfast that will keep me full until lunch. This week I switched things […]

Tamale Pie

IMG_2534.jpg

I have never made tamales or pies before. I just thought that these recipes are labor intensive that it would take a long time. But I should just get my hands dirty and really start making pies. As for the tamales, I think I will leave that to the professionals. Side story: I used to […]

A Day To Remember

Yesterday, a decade later…we still remember. I spent the weekend doing what I love, with the people that I love. Doing what we love. Taking nothing for granted.
