Being Greedy


I’ll be honest, I’ve been a little greedy lately. I’ve been cooking, taking photos and not sharing with you all on the blog. You’ve seen some photos on Facebook, but some of you wanted more info. So, today I share my warm orange salad. Life is going well, Miss G has been happy lately and [...]

Twice Baked

twice baked potatoe

As I kid I remember eating my first twice baked potato. I  had just finished my summer job at the Tillamook County  Fair and we had a celebration dinner at a local club to close out the fair. We only have a few choices for dinner and I chose the chicken and a twice baked [...]

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 [...]

I heart Cavemen.

Apple Scone

Happy Easter everyone!!!  If you haven’t eaten enough Peeps, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and all things sugary and Easter…  whip up a batch of these babies this week!  My favorite food blogger, The Civilized Caveman, has done it again.  He never ceases to please me with his recipes.  I don’t usually bake Paleo style goods, [...]

Egg-ceptionally Annoying.

Bacon Sandwich

As most of you guys know, I haven’t eaten much sugar in 2013.  As a matter of fact, I didn’t eat any sugar in all of January, so it was a little surprising (and a lot annoying) when I began to develop acne last month in February.  What?!  I’m eating my healthy little buns off, [...]

It’s not happening


sweet “sugarless” nuts It’s really not happening. I’m not sick. I had just at little tickle in my nose the other day, then a little something in my throat, but I’ve loaded up on vitamin C, been hydrating and getting rest. This morning when I woke up I felt pretty darn good, but I don’t [...]

Making it Yours!


spaghetti squash salad Hi Cheek Fans- It’s been a while since I posted. Something subconsciously happened when Lefty announced her retirement- apparently my blogging life took a pause too. But, I’m back and need to build it back into the schedule. Just like I coach people on integrating fitness into their lives, I too need [...]

Brett Favre Cheeks


  A couple weeks ago I announced my retirement from Sweet Cheeks stating I needed to focus full force on the acupuncture business.  In case you were wondering, I’ve since erased that posting because I didn’t want new future readers to think I had quit!   Today I would like to officially announce that I am [...]

What have you been eating?


the newest guacamole egg Like many of you, I go through phases of things that I eat. I always love fruit and eggs. The other foods are the variables. I go through my phases of bacon, sweet potatoes, spinach, tomatoes, kale, carrots and many other things. Meat comes in and out of my life, but [...]

Love and Light


  The grief and shock that washed over me upon hearing about the Colorado shooting this past week reached a new level of depth inside of me.  That could of been any one of us, any one of my family, any one of my friends …  And for what?  Senseless tragedy.  I felt paralyzed by [...]
