Easy To Make Vegetarian Recipes (and cookies too!)

Round up of easy to make vegetarian recipes worth trying this week!

  I decided to give my recipe section of the blog some attention by highlighting a few easy to make vegetarian recipes that I haven’t talked about in a long time! At least I do not think that I have? I hope that one of these recipes inspires you to try a new salad combination […]

Baking Cookies + Sorting Through Bar Mitzvah Photos (TOL)

  Is it Friday yet? I think I want a new coffee maker. I’ve been using a Keurig for 12 years and a part of me feels like switching back to the old-fashioned concept of brewing a full pot of coffee. Thoughts? Which type of coffee maker do you use right now? We made chocolate […]

Cookie Recipe + Still Without My Laptop + Other Stuff

    I’m still working from my son’s MacBook since last week when I spilled tea on my keyboard. The Apple guy who took my MacBook in for the repair had told me I would have my laptop back at the latest this past Tuesday, but I still don’t have it! Yeah. I won’t complain […]

My Kind Of Balance: Salads & Desserts

cold stone

  I had to laugh when I sat down to put together this recent eats post. The only photos in my phone were either of salads or deserts. My kind of balance! I haven’t been doing the best job at remembering to take pictures of my food if you want to know the truth. Breakfast […]

What I Ate Wednesday (3.22.17)

  Lots of food to discuss today for What I Ate Wednesday! Breakfast: I had my usual pre-run small bowl of oatmeal with banana early in the morning. After my run, I wanted a slice of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and jelly. Trader Joe’s was out of the organic crunchy salted peanut […]

  Oh hi! Happy Monday 🙂 I have come to really like these Week in Review posts, thanks Meg for the link up! So I published five posts last week which feels huge for me right now because balancing event industry writing with my usual blog writing has been a bit harder to do these days. I […]

  I meant to pop in yesterday morning but here’s what happened: First, I didn’t open my laptop on Wednesday beyond 2:30 pm. My son and I went out in the afternoon after I picked him up from school and once we got home after dinner, I considered myself unplugged from everything other than my television […]

Back To School Cookies

  So this is the back to school cookies round-up which I was supposed to share Tuesday, the first day back to school. My site, which was down on Tuesday, is still giving me trouble. I want to SCREAM. In fact, I do SCREAM just like that in big bold letters via Live Chat and then go back […]

TOL – Lenny & Larry’s, Time Hop & Midlife Crisis

Lenny and Larry's Cookie

I have been sleeping so well this week which translates into I don’t want to get up in the morning. Even us morning people sometimes like to sleep and have to drag ourselves out of bed. I gave in to the hype and finally tried a Lenny & Larry’s chocolate chip cookie. Let’s discuss. You see […]

TOL – Cookies, Candy & Careers

  I have been going for a quick walk after lunch every day this week but I really shouldn’t be calling it quick because I walk really slow. So slow that another lady in my neighborhood walked right passed me and quickly disappeared out of my view on the path. Does she know I am […]

Cereal Milk Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

  I made you cookies. I mean breakfast. I mean breakfast cookies. Oatmeal breakfast cookies. Oatmeal cookies made with cereal milk so we will just call them cereal milk oatmeal breakfast cookies! I have been wanting to create cookies using cereal milk for a while now but didn’t get around to it until a few days ago. What […]

Thinking Out Loud 2.18.16

I had a dream about Cookie Crisp cereal the other night followed by a dream about Tropicana Orange Juice last night. Am I the only one not only having random food dreams but food dreams specifically focused on the breakfast foods of their childhood? I read this quick little article in Self Magazine about planks which I must have already known but forgot I […]
