Merry Christmas And Lots of Chocolate Chips

  Good morning and Merry Christmas! I always wondered what it would be like to wake up Christmas morning with a tree and presents underneath waiting for me. The closest I ever came to the joy of a Christmas morning as a kid occurred when Hanukkah would overlap and I was able to convince my parents to leave […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Cookies And Links

  I may be dating myself but did you used to watch Three’s Company? I always think of Chrissy around this time of year because Chrissy was short for Christmas. Her name was Christmas Snow. Speaking of snow, the weather here has been warm and rainy yet stormy and snowy in so many states throughout […]

Adidas, Whole Foods, Dinner And Cookies- Two Recipes

  If you need a last-minute gift for someone or for yourself, may I please recommend my new favorite Adidas Energy Boost sneakers? You know a  sneaker is that great when you fail to realize just how many days you have run in a row. It somehow escaped my attention that I ran six, maybe seven days in […]

Forecast May Call For Baking

  He told me he loved me. Who knew making the little boy grilled cheese with some bacon on cinnamon raisin Ezekiel Bread was the key to his heart? Now don’t get your panties in a bunch about me suddenly having bacon in the house. It just so happens that I had an Applegate coupon to use […]

It’s Black Friday, Of Course I Woke Up Hungry

  Happy Friday! How was your Thanksgiving? It doesn’t feel like Friday, right? Nor does it feel like the color black. I don’t know what it feels like, I just know that as predicted,  I have woken up hungry. That would be my loaded up plate from last night. You can be sure I went […]

Long Run, Donuts, Red Mango and Whole Foods Food Bar Fun

  I know you spent your weekend wondering if I found time to make the donuts. Oh…You bet I did. I actually squeezed in some baking time late Saturday afternoon before I went out for dinner. Sushi. Amazing. Sorry. No Pictures. I really wasn’t in the mood to bake but I felt that the activity would keep […]

No Bake Trail Mix Bites – Two Recipes!

Did you try making the donuts yet? I meant to. I really did. Instead of playing with my new donut pan yesterday,  I got caught up playing with my mini muffin pan making these no-bake trail mix bites. Earlier in the week, I decided to create these bites for the little boy so that he could have a […]

Time To Make The Donuts And Muffin Tops

So yesterday morning I stopped midrun to stretch my legs. I don’t often stop to stretch but I find it helpful sometimes to stretch my hamstrings and quads a bit after the first mile and then continue on my way. Next time I need to stop midrun, I am going to try to not look down. Uh huh. I […]

Panera Bread Coffee and My New Favorite Fall Recipe

Question for you: When you are given access to the self-service coffee station at a restaurant such as Panera Bread, is there a limit to how often you can refill your cup even if it is assumed the refills are free? And, is it wrong to refill your cup one more time to take with you […]

Peanut Butter And Jelly Apples- Recipe!

It always seems that my breakfast the morning after a long run tends to be served on a plate rather than in a bowl. Sometimes I have trouble recognizing the plate in front of me. I don’t understand the correlation between running lots of miles and craving eggs but it happens to me often. This egg craving was […]

Tribe Hummus, Veggie Burger Recipe and Bust Cubby Winner

Good Morning Sunshines! I cannot believe it is already the second day of October. Sure doesn’t feel like it this week considering the temperature is expected to reach 85 degrees today. Yesterday’s 6 mile run wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Maybe I can blame it on the warmer than usual temps? I thought […]

Coffee And Goodies But No Fast Food

Time to make the donuts….Donut coffee that is. Jelly Donut coffee. When I was at Target yesterday, not only did I spot these new Dunkin flavors, if you buy two bags you get the mug for free. I could not wait to jump out of bed this morning and brew a big mug of jelly […]
