V-day Yum Yums

Valentine’s Day turned out to be amazing this year, largely due to the food we ate. Oh, and because of love, blah, blah… Back to the food… We inadvertently started celebrating V-day the night before. I had planned to make this Broccoli Pesto Pizza, and when my husband offered to help, it turned into a […]

Chia Seed Pudding – No, this is not a joke!

Ever since I started recording and watching The Dr. Oz Show like a week ago, I have turned into kind of a health nut – well, mentally, that is… My body still needs to follow, which is why I was kind of jazzed to see this recipe for Chia Seed Pudding in a recent issue […]

Let Your Feet Hit the Street: Home Pedis

Well, it’s flip flop season. I love nice lookin’ feet just as much as the next gal, but I’m not the biggest fan of getting pedicures. Here’s why: Some places just aren’t that sanitary. I know many people who have ended up with nasty toe fungi from icky pedicure establishments. Typically, the foot massage part […]

Shout Out to Salad!

I am not really a big salad freak or anything, but once in a while one comes along that makes me forget I’m eating salad in the first place. Here are two of those remarkable recipes. Caribbean Taco Salad Coming from an ad for Jennie-O turkey of all places, this salad caught my eye in […]

Doing the Spring Thing

It really seems like skinny is the new fat. Everywhere I look (okay, mostly on Facebook and Twitter), people are getting their healthy eats and workouts on – even former junk food fanatics and the notoriously lazy. I figured I’d better get on the bandwagon before it’s too late. So in honor of the impending […]

More Tasty Comfort Food

This Chicken and Pear Panini recipe from Rachael Ray is pretty good too. However, as with most of her recipes, my husband and I felt it could use a bit more salt at the end. It all starts with the chicken thighs, which are way more flavorful than breasts. In order to cook them all […]

Yummy & Easy Winter Recipe

This recipe from Food Network is the joint. Soy-Maple Salmon with Cauliflower – mmmm hmmmm. I put the cauliflower on top of brown rice to make it a bit more hearty for this annoying winter weather we’re having here in Atlanta. The recipe was super easy and a winner, even with my husband who can […]

Crab Stick and Cucumber Stir Fry

So when my boyfriend suggested crab sticks for dinner the other night, I had no idea what he was talking about. It turns out crab sticks are little pre-cooked, processed morsels that taste like crab but are actually made up of fish parts and other fillers. Sound good? Well, it was. Real good. Since I […]

Five-Spice Coconut Chicken – Hell yes!

I (sort’ve) made this last night, except instead of marinating the chicken for 15 minutes, I marinated it for three hours. My BF then cooked it up on the outside grill with a side of sliced zucchini I supplied to him slathered in rosemary-infused oil and dusted with salt and freshly ground black pepper. I […]

Go Publix!

I admit I always shop at Kroger for the deals, but Publix is a fine establishment. I love how they have people there cooking up fun recipes for shoppers to sample in the store and try at home. This week I tried one I collected from them awhile ago when I was visiting my mom […]
