3 Ingredient Banana Smoothie

It’s time to kick it up a notch. Spring has sprung officially, but thankfully it’s not warm enough in CT to wear shorts yet.  Am I the only one who gets anxiety wearing shorts for the first time of the season?  Anyone?  Just me?  Maybe you can’t go by me since I don’t like wearing shorts.  Anyway, the reality is I need to kick those winter pounds so I’ve stepped up my workout game.  I’m sore (a lot) and I’m excited that I’m trying something new.  Workout.  Check.  Food… well, that’s a work in progress.  I love food so it’s …

Maple Mustard Roasted Chicken

We have no plans this weekend and I’m loving that.  We could do anything… or nothing.  Aren’t those weekends the best sometimes? The one thing that I do have on my agenda for the weekend is to hit the gym.  Since I don’t have to rush anywhere afterwards maybe I’ll hit a coffee shop afterwards for a treat.  The thing is that the parking lot is a monstrosity because it’s small, it’s always crowded, and it’s right off a very busy street that makes it almost dangerous when people try to get in or out of it.  I’ve probably said to myself that “I’ll …

Crispy Baked Potato Wedges

Sometimes you need a basic dish that will go with just about anything. The other day my sister asked me how to bake sliced potatoes.  It’s surprisingly easy and simple.  I have made them before so I pointed her in the direction of the roasted potato recipe and the Greek roasted potato recipe to give her a couple of options to choose from.  Those recipes are oldies but goodies and it made me wonder if there was maybe a better way to make roasted potatoes.  That’s where these crispy baked potato wedges come in. I can think of a million ways …

Crumb Doughnuts

O… M… G.  These are the best doughnuts that I’ve ever made.  Ever. I’ve made a lot of baked doughnuts and I’m a tough critic.  I suppose it’s because a baked doughnut is not fried (duh) and in my mind and they’re just not the same.  I refuse to own a fryer (because I don’t need more fatty temptations) so I’ve come to terms with the fact that baked doughnuts tend to look and taste like oddly shaped cakes. In comparing these doughnuts to all the others I’ve made (some on the blog and some that weren’t good enough to make the blog), they …

Comfy and Cute

Once the weekend hits, I’m all for comfortable clothes.  Since I workout in the mornings I usually stay in my workout clothes all day, which is apparently the cool thing to do now (who knew?).  I recently read that “athleisure wear” is in style.  It’s a clothing trend where you wear workout clothes. Here’s one of my favorite outfits that I’ve been sporting lately: A good hoodie.  I recently bought this hoodie from Old Navy.  The color I picked online looked more like a pinkish color but in real life it’s a bright peach.  (I’ve actually just noticed that my picture …
