Pork Egg Roll in a Bowl

This may not be the prettiest meal but it sure is delicious. I’d rather be taking pictures of pretty doughnuts.  Heck, I’d rather be eating them too.   You know, because they’re doughnuts.  I’ve fallen off the wagon and I haven’t been eating healthy for the past month.  I blame my tooth, which started as a tooth ache and resulted in a root canal.  I’ve kept up with my workouts, but my pants feel more snug than usual.  I must get back on the healthy eating track and this meal is a great way to start. This meal is quick and …

Nighttime Skin Care Routine

I’m a firm believer in great skin care.  Every night, I wash my face and I use a moisturizer.  I’ve had this routine for as long as I can remember, but the products I use have changed over the years.  I’ve thought about sharing what skin care products I use but by the time I form an opinion and sit down to write a post, I’m usually finishing the bottle and moving to the next greatest thing.  Right now half of my skin care products are repeat purchases and I really love the recent additions so I thought I’d share with you …

Banana Bread Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze

609 posts and five years later… Tomorrow is my five year blogiversary.  I seriously can’t believe it.  When I started my blog I had no expectations and I had no idea what I was doing (and sometimes I still don’t think I have a clue).  It was and still is a hobby that I’m very passionate about.  I enjoy sharing recipes and other miscellaneous things with you.  Over the years I’ve started to share more non-recipe posts with you for a couple of reasons.  One, it’s getting harder to find recipes that are worth sharing because I have quite the …

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

It doesn’t happen often, but I’ve got a beef recipe for all of you today. I like to eat beef but I don’t cook it often (or at all) because I don’t like touching or even looking at raw meat.  Plus, I never know how to determine when the beef is done cooking.  I don’t want to eat it raw and I don’t want to serve shoe leather either.   At the end of the day I simply avoid these struggles and stick to vegetarian meals because there is no guess work there for me.  It’s very hard to overcook things …

Greek Chickpea Flatbread Salad

Another day, another salad. I could eat the same thing for breakfast straight for two months and not get bored of it.  I usually alternate between yogurt with fruit and oatmeal with fruit.  I could also eat the same snack for days on end and that would be just fine.  Lately, I’m loving Skinny Pop popcorn as my snack of choice.  On the other hand, lunches are a totally different beast.  Lately I feel pretty lucky if I eat my lunch without being sick of it by the time I’m done.  I’m weird, I know. Salads tend to be my deal …
