Flour-less Chocolate Cupcakes

Flourless Chocolate Muffins

Every once in a while I get a hankering to experiment with a muffin idea.

Sure, I could just use one of the million tried-and-true muffin recipes out there, but where’s the fun in that?

Chia Porridge

Overnight Maple Cinnamon Chia Porridge

Like most food habits, my breakfast choices have slowly morphed over the years. When I initially lost weight (70 lbs 8 years ago) my go-to was a bowl of All-Bran with skim milk. Then I switched to soy milk, then almond. I started adding berries and other fruits.  Soon my daily cereal became oatmeal. Read the rest of this post »»

Kale Quinoa Salad with Dried Cranberries and Sunflower Seeds

Kale Quinoa Salad With Dried Cranberries and Sunflower Seeds

I’m learning when you buy a 2 lb bag of kale, you have to figure out how to eat 2 lbs of kale!

I’ve already put it in eggs, made chips, a cheeseseak and tonight I’m making a fried rice with it and some leftover pork.

Grilled Mushroom and Onion Topper

Grilled Mushroom and Onion Topper

When my mom sees this recipe she may literally laugh out loud. As a child I declared my hate of both mushrooms and onions more times than I can count!
