My, my, my…it has been a minute! Hello, friends! I’ve missed you. I really haven’t had all that much to report. No yummy cooking, and definitely no healthy yummy cooking to speak of. But friends, that’s all about to change. I’ve been watching this amazing show on Netflix ~ Jamie Oliver’s “Quick and Easy” or “Five Ingredients” ~ or something like that. I can’t remember … Continue reading Chicken and Mushroom Pasta w/Broccoli.
If you love collard greens, keep reading. If you love kimchi, keep reading. If you think you don’t like either, you might need to try them together. I absolutely love both dishes, but I didn’t always. The first time I tried kimchi was on a plane to Seoul, South Korea. The most beautiful flight attendant I had ever seen, came up to me and said, “American meal, … Continue reading Collards and Kimchi.
Over the Christmas break, I made my homemade Caesar Salad and my lovely sisters-in-law asked for the recipe (hi ladies!!!) I’m always so flattered when people ask for recipes, and honestly, that’s totally why I have this food blog ~ it’s a great way to share recipes with my family and friends. And to remind myself, too! I thought for sure I had my basic … Continue reading My Caesar Dressing…
HAPPY 2020, Y’ALL! I am so excited for this year! Or, I will be when I recover from the holidays. So much gluten and dairy and sugar and salt and travel and and and… My body is screaming at me. Today, on January 1st of 2020, I’m going to relax and watch movies with the hub, venture out to the gym for a little cardio … Continue reading HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Yesterday it snowed all day long, and I was in absolute heaven. I love snow so much that I actually woke up depressed this morning, knowing the snow would be over for a while. The hub and I were basically snowed in because the hill we live on was, and still is, an ice rink. Fine by me! I really needed a break after a … Continue reading LOADED KALE SALAD: my healthy additions #1.
Okay, I’ve got an idea. Can I run this by you? What if…instead of focusing on eliminating certain types of food, counting calories, and depriving ourselves of the things we love…we merely ADDED the things that fuel us and make us sing? And if that list is a big list ~ and oh honey you know mine is ~ we would literally run out of hours … Continue reading lightbulb moment: my healthy additions.

I love savory foods for breakfast. Preferably accompanied by a cinnamon roll. HA! This savory egg dish is really satisfying, with spicy Asian flavors, crunchy sesame seeds, and loaded with protein. SPICY SCRAMBLED EGGS AND TEMPEH. Ingredients: all you need are eggs, tempeh, toasted sesame oil, some other kind of oil or butter, sesame seeds, and your favorite spice mix. I’m using a wok these … Continue reading spicy scrambled eggs and tempeh.
Here’s another amazing Kansas City cafe review! This one is near and dear to my heart ~ I know the owner!!! I also know the barista! I feel like a celebrity. It’s called Rochester Brewing and Roasting Company, located in the trendy Crossroads District, and friends, the adorable barista just made a note that I am left-handed for the next time I order a cappuccino, … Continue reading Rochester.
Oh oh oh….it’s Pho… Actually, it should be “Uh, uh, uh…it’s Pho”. Am I pronouncing that right? I’ve heard it sounds like “fuh” as in, “fuhhh-get about it”, or “FUnyons”. Right? Anyway, I love love LOVE this Vietnamese tricked out, flavor-packed, cure-what-ails-you, chicken-soup. If you make this healing broth from scratch, there are strange, frightening animal bones involved. I’m not afraid of any of that … Continue reading CHICKEN ZOODLE PHO.
