The Hub and I created this phrase ~ “The Network of Luxury”. These are close friends who also happen to possess amazing gifts, talents, lake houses, or other incredible benefits that make your friendship just that much richer. Perfect example: our friends, Kate and Anna, own a farm called Roots, Fruits and Greens Farm, and have started an online delivery business ~ http://www.farmici.com. They sell … Continue reading Honeydew and Lemon Balm Chilled Soup.
I am not exaggerating when I say that this is the best chicken I’ve ever made. Glossy, char-y, caramelized, and sitting on a bed of golden, gorgeous saffron rice. Look at that strand of saffron hanging on the chicken!! This is positively salacious! Saffron is normally super expensive, but did you know that Trader Joe’s has saffron for a really reasonable price? Okay, here’s the … Continue reading The Greek Chicken of my Dreams.
Every Tuesday, my real estate brokerage has a 9:30 meeting, and I leave so incredibly fired up, and frankly, STARVING. I have started intermittent fasting during the weekdays, and if I get out of that meeting without breaking down and eating a donut, I really pat myself on the back. Well today, I came home with so much energy and excitement for my new real … Continue reading
I’m home sick today, feeling like poo on a platter. A poo poo platter. Get it? Po Po Platter ~ poo poo platter? (Never too sick to pun) I never see the Po Po Platter on Chinese restaurant menus anymore. What was that anyway? Anyway, I can never just lay in bed and not be productive when I’m sick. Sometimes I get my best work done … Continue reading Crunchy Sesame Eggs.
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.
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.
The Buddha Bowl is the ANSWER for so many things: 1. gluten free, paleo, and keto styles of eating 2. diverse, easy ways to cook “ethnic” food (not sure if that’s the PC way to say it) 2. eating with your eyes (I love pretty food) 3. getting your veggies ON 4. only messing up one pan and one bowl!!! And the one I’m going … Continue reading Vive la Buddha Bowl!
This is the best cereal I’ve ever fueled my body with. It’s only nuts and seeds, y’all. It’s basically my old granola recipe, but without oats. You can add oats if you want! But if you’re staying away from grains, this is the cereal for you. There’s some dried fruit in there. Take that out if you’re watching your sugar… NUTTY CEREAL Preheat your oven … Continue reading Nutty Cereal.
Happy Spring! Let’s celebrate the warm sun with a teacup full of sunshine and health! Huzzah! This gazpacho is special ~ it doesn’t use bread to thicken ~ it uses one boiled egg (or more if you want to get your protein on!) It also does not contain cucumber. I wanted to keep the flavor bright, but not too intense. Plus, the Hub hates cucumber … Continue reading Gazpacho for the WIN.
