Maple Balsamic Dressing

Adrienne cut her third tooth yesterday. Top right. It’s adorable…she looks like a little snaggly tooth pirate. That’s an adorable image right? (Well, it is when said pirate has cheeks so chubby that you can’t even stand it.) Also, her chin is chapped from the constant waterfall of drool that has been cascading down her … Continue reading

Healthy(ish) Breakfast Burrito

I woke up on Saturday morning with an overwhelming need for a breakfast burrito. Need. Considering that my desire for things that aren’t cake are usually fleeting, I jumped all on it. Meeker was at work and due home in less than thirty minutes. I (really badly) wanted to surprise him with the smell of … Continue reading

Oatmeal Apple Crisp

So, you know oatmeal doesn’t do it for me, right? Like, a big bowl of steaming hot oatmeal holds no appeal. However, if you want to put oats inside some baked goodies…I’m game. I got a craving for all things fall while reading through that cookbook I told you guys about yesterday. I wanted to … Continue reading

Thursday Things

1. This book exists. I found it at the library the other day and then came home and pretty much read the whole thing.   2. I get to see this girl in 15 days. I could not be more excited.   3. How did my little tiny newborn baby learn how to stand up? … Continue reading

Sautéed Cabbage and Chicken

I didn’t plan on sharing this meal with you all because it was just sort of thrown together for dinner on Monday. But as I was eating leftovers yesterday afternoon I thought man, this is really good, and really colorful. My camera was begging for me to take a picture of it. I can’t say … Continue reading

Crusty Bread

I’m never buying bread again. Alright, that’s probably not true. But this bread is so gosh darn good, and so easy to make. It only has three ingredients. THREE. It looks and tastes like you paid five dollars for it. But you didn’t. You paid however much three cups of flour costs. What…like 25 cents? … Continue reading

Vegetable Leek Soup

  I love leeks. I don’t know why I don’t eat them more often – probably because I don’t know what to do with them except make soup. When I was a kid, I used to eat this potato leek soup that came in a paper cup. You just poured hot water in, stirred it … Continue reading

Lunch Lately

I’m on an arugula kick. I have been putting it in every meal I’ve eaten this week. It tastes like peppery butter to me – which means it goes with everything. I’m also on a Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger kick. They seriously taste like egg rolls.   Add a bagel slathered in horseradish and spicy … Continue reading

Tabata This & The Z-Fund

Want a quick workout for today? It’s kind of confusing…so pay attention. It’s taken straight from Crossfit a few days ago – I don’t make this stuff up. Couldn’t if I tried. Tabata This Tabata Row* Rest 1 minute Tabata Squat Rest 1 minute Tabata Pull-up Rest 1 minute Tabata Push-up Rest 1 minute Tabata … Continue reading

Easy Blackberry Jam

The other day my friend Sarah tweeted about some scones and blackberry jam she was eating. I tweeted her back and basically told her that she needed to email me the recipe in the next five seconds or else our ten years of friendship would go down the drain. Just kidding. I didn’t tell her … Continue reading
