Favorite Moments 2016

dessert display at AllSeated event

  2016 was a huge milestone year in our lives because of my son’s Bar Mitzvah back in October BUT there were other memorable, fun moments too! I decided to pick the first few things that popped into my mind as my favorites from 2016. Half Marathon PR! I ran the Long Island Half Marathon for […]

Holiday Party Desserts & WIAW

  Jumping right in to What I Ate Wednesday! Breakfast: I have been alternating these toasted English muffins and peanut butter with oatmeal for breakfast once again. You had to know I wouldn’t totally give up on oatmeal! There’s no rhyme or reason lately as to which I choose for breakfast, I just make my decision […]

A lot of dessert in this Week In Review!

40 40 club desserts

  Mid-December already? Wow. We planned our quick trip to Disney World sort of at the last-minute so it’s pretty exciting that we are already going next week. Although before we get to next week, let’s chat about the last several days which seem to have contained a lot of dessert! I’ve been super busy […]

Love my job, major dessert, keeping my hair from sweating (TOL)

  Remember those amazing blueberry walnut whole wheat pancakes I had at the diner on Sunday which I shared in Monday’s post? Well, the Premier Diner was listed this week as one of the top places for pancakes on Long Island in this article which reconfirmed that my taste buds know what’s up. I sort of feel jet lagged […]

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 […]

It’s Okay When What You Eat Changes

Cold Stone

  Jen from Peanut Butter Runner (one of my most favorite blogs and the first blog I ever read!) shared a terrific post last week called Food, Fitness and Feeling Good: Paving Your Own Way and Learning What Works For You. I think what I love most about her post is how she points out that a diet […]

10 Healthy Living Tips: Do I follow them?

  I really liked  Amanda’s (from Run to the Finish) post last week where she addressed 10 healthy living tips that she doesn’t follow. I thought it would be fun to look at the 10 Healthy Living Tips she discussed and, almost like a survey, see if I follow them. 1. Drink Warm Lemon Water I don’t drink lemon water […]

Cold S’mores {No Bake & Super Easy!}

cold smores

  I first learned about cold s’mores during the summer of 2006 when my son was enrolled in the sweetest little cooking class for preschoolers (it was actually the summer before he started preschool, he wasn’t even three years old!). It was a mommy and me style cooking class where we made simple and easy recipes with […]

Let’s talk About my Black pants

dessert

    Let’s talk about the black pants hanging in my closet. The black pants I bought at White House Black Market in 2013 when I was on the hunt for a new outfit to wear on the Dr. Oz Show (remember I was on television? Still so cool!) So the pants. I remember taking […]

My Meatless Diet

my meatless diet

  A close friend of mine recently told me that although she has been a carnivore all of her life, she is starting to consider a meatless diet and wanted my thoughts on the subject. Of course I took the time to talk to her in full detail and of course I decided that our conversation made for a great […]

Lightened Up Vegan Apple Crisp

  This is just another example as to why I cannot set up and follow a strict blog editorial calendar. I had every intention of sharing next week’s dinners and grocery shopping with you today but then my son got sick and stayed sick all week, which totally threw me off. Talking to him about dinner […]

Cookie Dough Flourless Brownie Pizza

  I am an only child. Did you know that? The stereotype surrounding only children is that we are typically stubborn and selfish, a product of being used to getting our way. As I have gotten older and certainly since becoming a mother, I like to think I became more of a selfless person. For the most part. […]
