I spent last weekend in Prescott, Arizona with a group of amazing women from Second Mile. One of the highlights of the weekend was my time on the high ropes course. Climbing up a 30-foot pole and jumping off may sound scary (it was!), but wow was it exhilarating. Taking that leap of faith turned […]
Fall is here and so are fall vegetables. We have been getting some kind of squash in our Bountiful Baskets lately. Last week, I asked for acorn squash recipes. Jennie submitted a link to a moroccan-style stuffed acorn squash recipe. I thought it sounded good, so I went to pick the ingredients up at the […]

This week’s Bountiful Basket included a few new items including okra and asian pears. I love asian pears, they are crisp like an apple and sweet like a pear. In fact, my mother-in-law has an asian pear tree in her backyard, so I am spoiled by these beauties in the fall. Okra is kind of […]
Date night doesn’t come around as often as it used to with two little ones, so when it does we make sure to partake in our favorite food. The first time I took my husband out for sushi was in college. I had learned to love it, and he was very skeptical. After the meal, […]
Bread crumbs are perfect for adding texture and crunch to a recipe. But I prefer to add that savory crunch without added high fructose corn syrup or trans-fats. Turn around a box of plain bread crumbs at the store, and you will likely be shocked by how many ingredients can be in PLAIN bread […]
Last night’s dinner was inspired by a couple of recipes that I had seen posted recently. Coconut Cilantro Chicken Drummies by Maya Nahra, RD, LD and green beans inspired by Jane Maynard’s post on Makes and Takes “My Favorite Way to Cook Vegetables”. I served both of these up with a little brown rice. Maya had […]

She has captured some beautiful photos of our kids and most recently updated my professional photos. If you live in the Tucson area (or are willing to fly her to […]
I love making homemade pizza with my son Joe. He has so much fun making the dough (especially punching the dough) and picking out his own toppings. It’s a great way to get him involved in the kitchen and encourage him to eat more vegetables. When we have time, we make our own focaccia dough, […]
You may have heard in the news this week that the Corn Refiners Association is trying to sweeten it’s image by using the name “corn sugar” in place of high fructose corn syrup. So while they try to convince us that “sugar is sugar”, I thought it would be fun to find some handmade corn […]
