introducing…the PIXYCLEANSE.

Hi Friends! Next week, I’m trying something new. I don’t know about you but all the negativity and toxicity in the world has got me moving slow, and binge-eating my feelings.

So I’ve decided to give myself the gift of health, vitality, and youth – and if … Continue reading introducing…the PIXYCLEANSE.

chili – no meat necessary.

Hello.  My name is Pixy.  I am addicted to my own chili recipe.  (Hi, Pixy.) I guess I should clarify before you think I’m too terribly arrogant – this recipe started with Rachael Ray’s Black Bean Chili Stoup recipe (soup and stew put together) but I’ve tweaked and renamed it and hugged it and squeezed it and called it my very own. How many years … Continue reading chili – no meat necessary.

Well there’s a new, 2nd Cafe Europa, in my neighborhood!!! I’m sitting at the bar this morning, enjoying a gorgeous decaf cappuccino, … Continue reading CAFE EUROPA.

ancho fish tacos & salsa verde.

who doesn’t love mexican food?  the ultimate comfort food.  the food we americans miss when we’re in europe (am i right or am i right).  it’s delicious when it’s high-brow and fusion-y, and it’s delicious when it’s down and dirty tex-mex straight from a food truck. but, i hate how i feel after i eat it.  it’s almost impossible to make healthy choices at a mexican restaurant … Continue reading ancho fish tacos & salsa verde.
