Kathy Griffin Inspired This Totally Delicious Breakfast Sandwich

November 29, 2016

I love Kathy Griffin. She’s hilarious and I’ve been a fan for decades. I’ve been getting my Kathy fix lately, because she’s been making the talk show rounds, promoting her new book, which I can’t wait to read but haven’t bought yet. She was on The Dr. Oz Show yesterday, where she talked about what she eats, because she’s the healthiest she’s ever been. Read the rest of this entry »


Thanksgiving 2016 Rewind

November 28, 2016

I’m back home from Colorado and had a great Thanksgiving with my family. And since I take my annual Thanksgiving Pledge seriously, I wanted to share how I did. Overall, I stuck to the four rules pretty well!

The day started with a 5K Turkey Trot. This was my fourth time running it, and my sister’s third, but this year my sister’s husband and kids joined in the fun too!

OK, OK, I’m not fooling anyone. CLEARLY, that’s a photograph of Richard. (I have plenty of pictures of me and Richard, though, see them here.)

The photo is on the box of an infomercial product he sold about ten years ago, called Steam Heat. It’s no longer on the market, but I bought a Read the rest of this entry »

It Looks Like a Quinoa Salad… But It’s NOT!

September 20, 2016

If it looks like a grain-based salad, and it tastes like a grain-based salad, it’s gotta be a grain-based salad, right?

WRONG! There’s not a single grain on that plate. I made this salad with… Read the rest of this entry »


3WAYS2 Gussy Up Your Hard-Boiled Eggs in the Blink of an Eye!

September 9, 2016

I have some great tips on fun ways to eat hard-boiled eggs, but first, a quick shout-out to my pal Dawn Jackson Blatner, because she inspired this post. I met Dawn at the Fitbloggin’ conference a few months ago, and she had sets of three simple tips and tricks for everything. It was very impressive, and rather brilliant: It’s easy to remember three ideas, and easy to share them, too.

So I devised 3WAYS2, which I’m planning on making a recurring post on this blog. These posts will be devoted to sharing 3 ways that you can make positive changes in regards to your health and weight loss efforts. They may be about Read the rest of this entry »

Ever had kohlrabi? I came across it at Eastern Market in Detroit, and I was in the mood to try something new, so I bought it. (Full Disclosure: I’m pretty much always in the mood to try something new.)
