Pot o’curry!

chicken curry-001

  One pot makes things soooo much easier. I know I don’t have to tell you all. It’s really quite simple, all you need is a few minutes to chop, spice it up and let it go, then onto other business for the day.  Today I made curried chicken, actually, its cooking as I’m writing [...]

Snowy Sunday

This past week in Los Angeles we had blustering winds, sunny hot weather, cooler misty clouds, and an overcast muggy day. All in one week!  That’s a lot of weather of LA living!  But don’t worry, there’s no snow… we still haven’t had any snow Chorizo and Kale Soup One pound of chorizo sausage, quartered [...]

Whip it good!

  Life goes in waves, waves of more cooking and less cooking, right now I’m in the cooking less wave. I’m also in the starting to work out more wave. For a while there I was a one time a week workout girl, ok, maybe twice a week, either way, it’s not the best approach [...]

This delightful little pile of mush is my new powerhouse go-to breakfast!  As some of you may know I recently found out I have a raging allergy to egg whites.  I was annoyingly breaking out with acne despite my “healthy” diet.  I’m happy to say cutting the eggs down to once or twice a week [...]

  Today I head up to Oregon to celebrate a very special birthday. My niece Emery is turning 3 years old and we are having a party. I’m excited to see her and the whole family.  The excitement has escalated as we chat on the phone often, and skype more regularly and we are only [...]

This brownie tasted so good I thought I was cheating. It might be that I’ve been eating so clean that any dessert like thing is AMAZING, or it might be that they are really amazing. I swear they are a truly legit treat. Legit meaning no processed sugar, to be clear there is sugar in [...]

Sweet Cheeks Uncut!

Bacon-Brussels

The other day as I was in a rush, I whipped up something quick and tasty from the few random ingredients I had in my fridge.  Right before I was about to scarf down the entire dish I realized…”Durrrrrr Lefty!  Take a picture of this for the blog!  I should share this too even though [...]

I did it!!  I ran my first marathon ever. I even ran the whole thing, well besides the one bathroom break and the slow downs to grab water, drink it and move on. It was pretty cool. Who knew that I would ever do a marathon? (well I guess I did, because I planned to [...]

Call To Action!
