I first became a vegetarian when I was about 13.  I grew up going to sleep away camp in New Hampshire every year, and one year I made this friend who everyone thought was the coolest girl ever.  She was a vegetarian, and so from then on I was too.  That pretty much lasted until

This was a dinner totally inspired by our most recent trip to Disney.  We went to the beautiful California Grill restaurant, which overlooks the Magic Kingdom.  I love the place because of the views and the huge windows that flood the restaurant with light.  Not to mention I have had some of the best food

I suddenly remembered a few weeks ago that fresh cherries existed.  Upon remembering I proceeded to look up my produce purchase history to find when I get to stuff my face full of these perfect little fruits. I realized it was May, and it was a week later that I got my hands on some.

I have a lot of reasons to love the family I married into.  I got an amazing husband, best friends, role models, and lots of love in my life out of the deal.  Which is pretty unbeatable. I also got lemon dressing.  And while next to those other things, something as simple as lemon dressing

One of those things that I feel like I hear about a lot is how good greens are for you.  Because… they are.  End of post? Just kidding, I just thought that since greens are so good for you, and can be so delicious with very little effort, I should share my favorite way to

My love of oatmeal for breakfast started at a young age.  With one that had dinosaur eggs that melted into mini dinosaurs, and one with packets of fruit jam that I got to swirl in all by myself, what wasn’t to love? When I made this quinoa, I didn’t even realize I was pretty much

I really like having  special nights throughout the week.  In fact, I just read an article about how if you spread out the things you love doing throughout the week and not just on the weekends your quality of life improves.  That made so much sense to me, and I am all about doing the
