I’m pretty sure I snagged the last of this season’s bounty of blueberries. I have been averaging a 2 lb container (thank you, Costco) of these gems every week and a half. I eat a handful for a snack, add them to my morning oatbran . . . . and make the best sauce for a pork or chicken dinner.« Continue »
Just before the holidays I scored an amazing deal on a french oven. I’ve never owned one, and therefore never cooked with one, but after a little research I was ready to give it a try. « Continue »
For me, any recipe that says “stuffed” is code for “Fancy, shmancy”! Especially one like this.
I’ve made Italian Stuffed Chicken Breasts in the past, but this time I wanted to change up the flavors a bit. I scrounged around for a couple of ingredients that I thought would work well together. The result did not disappoint!« Continue »
Happy Friday! I started my day with a fantastic run and some strength training. It felt fabulous, and got me ready to take on the day!

Chicken was on our menu plan last night, but I wasn’t in the mood for our regular grilled chicken. I wanted something with a little more pizzazz.
We were both pretty hungry, so I had to figure it out quickly. I rummaged through the kitchen, found a few ingredients that “spoke” to me, and pulled together a rather tasty dinner within 40 minutes, start to finish. Not bad!
Some friends came over for dinner last night; we had to practice our dance moves for a wedding we’re attending this weekend.
We are in charge of leading the line dance sequence during “Dancing Queen” in the movie, Mamma Mia. It’s a long story, how this came to be, but hilarious nonetheless, and therefore it has to happen. We cannot wait to bust this out at the wedding: (The line dance is at the end of the clip)
