Two weeks ago, I started on a new food program called RECON from Personal Trainer Food. They very kindly shipped me a month’s worth a food, and I’ve been eating it! I wanted to do a little update, since I’m about halfway through the month. Read the rest of this entry »
I had family in town over the weekend, so we had a brunch gathering at my place, and I made the entree: a delicious Spinach and Egg Brunch Casserole. I love egg casseroles, but they can be loaded with cheese and bread. This recipe has less of that stuff, and a whole lot of something that I’ve never had in an egg casserole before: cottage cheese.

But I’m jumping ahead of myself. Let’s start at the beginning. Read the rest of this entry »
Here’s a behind-the-scenes tip from a veteran: When a blogger disappears for a while, unannounced, something is going down. And it’s likely not good.

My next post was going to be my New York City race recap… not anymore! I got productive on the plane and wrote a post originally intended for next week.
There was a huge bin of popsicle molds by the registers at the drug store. Stores place cheap, enticing items near registers to encourage impulse purchases, and boy howdy, did I fall for it. I’ve never made popsicles before, but now I could… for the low, low price of TWO DOLLARS! Sold.
My first popsicles, which I made that night, weren’t very pretty. Read the rest of this entry »
