Zucchini Spaghetti

February 12, 2016

I love a fun kitchen gadget. My friends know it, too. So when I was chatting with my friends Kristy and Mike a few weeks ago, Kristy asked if I had a Veggetti.

January 18, 2016

I had to clean out my freezer a few weeks ago to make room for all the Personal Trainer Food that arrived, and in doing so, I found something I forgot I had: KANGAROO MEAT!

I bought this a while back – a year or two ago, perhaps – at Sprouts. They have a small selection of frozen game meats, like Read the rest of this entry »
