What I Ate – Almost No Cook Version

I’ve learned to stream line my morning routine and I feel like I’m back to my old self and my active lifestyle. I’ve consistently made it to the gym first thing in the morning the last few weeks. Woohoo! One of the things that I’ve done to stay sane in the morning is to do […]

Sesame Street Birthday Party

My nephew Jonah is now a 1-year-old big boy. He had a party and we celebrated Sesame Street style. The birthday boy was in a celebratory mood. Look at how happy he looks here 🙂 We all signed a huge birthday card for him….something he can read and enjoy once he is old enough to […]

Penne Pasta with White Bean and Roasted Tomatoes

Crunchy Oven-Fried Cheese Ravioli

Even though we love to eat fresh, home cooked meals whenever we can, I also prepare for those times when the husband and I get home really late in the evening and just want to eat something that comes from the freezer. Some of our frozen food staples are thin crust pizza, veggie burgers and […]

Grain Free Chocolate Cake for One

Hello friends 🙂 It feels like it has only been a minute since I posted last weekend, yet a week has gone by. I can’t believe it went by so fast. It was raining earlier this week (after I bragged about how it was so sunny during the weekend) so my week started very gloomy […]
