I wanted to continue my little streak of cooking and eating citrus fruit, peel and all, so I came up with an easy, simple chicken recipe and tried it out on a couple friends who came to dinner. My recipe is inspired by a delicious meal my friend Katherine made in Sweden, which in turn was inspired by a Martha Stewart recipe. Leave it to me to mess around with Martha’s perfection!

Remember the depression I mentioned last week? I’m feeling much better (thank you for all your messages and encouragement!), but I gotta address that depression one last time, because it had an effect on my weight.

Stay tuned for a Birthday Burpees update at the end!
Sorry for the delay, folks! Normally I do my monthly weigh-in at the first of the month, but I was in Michigan when March began, and I didn’t weigh myself until I returned home, a few days later. This post was further delayed due to my birthday and the enormous Birthday Burpees challenge that came along with it.
No more delays! I stepped on the scale last week, and it said… Read the rest of this entry »

I cook a lot, but I very rarely fire up all four burners on my stove at the same time. One recent meal, though, required all four, and while juggling so much cookware was a handful, the end result was magnificent.
I built the menu around one ingredient: Read the rest of this entry »

A new month has started. Time to update my weight loss chart! I added my 5-Year Anniversary line and stepped on the scale.
I stayed the same. 247 pounds. It’s always nice to lose, but Read the rest of this entry »
