Asian Broccoli Salad with Sesame Almond Dressing

February 15, 2019

I’ve been using (and eating!) riced vegetables a lot lately. They’re just so easy and convenient. They cook quickly, can be added to so many dishes, and best of all, good for you!

I was wandering an unfamiliar Trader Joe’s looking for the dog treats (for my main girl Maude) when I came across a positively bewitching product: BACON JAM! Is this a real thing?! It sure is!

An Awesome Stairwell Shot

November 4, 2014

The SkyRise Chicago photographer got an awesome shot of me at the end of the Willis Tower stair race on Sunday (my recap, with lots of photos, is here), and I couldn’t wait to share it. Here I am between the 102nd and 103rd floors, trying to finish strong:
