I mentioned in my Year-End Progress Report that I haven’t been taking as many group fitness classes as I have in the past. But I want to change that, so on the first weekend of 2020, I went and got super sweaty at a fitness class I was trying for the first time.

I had the opportunity to make brunch the other day, and I immediately thought of quiche. But I couldn’t decide what kind of quiche to make… so I upped the ante, and made two quiches. TWO FREAKIN’ QUICHES!
Here’s how I made them: Read the rest of this entry »

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a delightful holiday season. Here’s a really awesome Christmas present that my sister-in-law Alexis gave me: a portrait of me and JJ as characters on “The Simpsons!” I love it so much.

My friend Josh texted me, asking if I was a fan of dipping apples in hummus. He enjoyed it, but his wife and teenager thought it was gross. I had never considered such a combination, and I told him that, and then expressed my excitement in trying it.
And now I’ve tried it. What did I think? Read the rest of this entry »

I went to a holiday party last night, and contributed a dish, since it was a potluck. I’m not going to take credit and say I invented anything, but I did take a recipe that only had four ingredients and swapped two of them for healthier items. That’s 50%, y’all! It all started with a package.
This is the Pineapple Pecan Cheesespread Mix by Country Home Creations, a local dip mix company that’s Read the rest of this entry »
