Happy Monday! I have lots to tell you about, so I decided to smash them all into one post. First, I am pretty excited about one of my recipes being featured on Shape Magazine’s website. The freelance writer who put the piece together contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I would mind […]
Remember the pretty plants I got from the farmer’s market last month? Well, they are growing nicely, and we were able to harvest our first Juliet tomato yesterday. Juliets are like grape tomatoes, small, long and deliciously sweet. They grown in clusters, but this one was all alone because of eager little hands that picked […]
Leila has been sick this week. Poor squeaker has almost no voice. Instead of thinking about everything I could be doing right now, I am choosing to be thankful that I am the one who gets to snuggle with her. As much as I want to complain about lack of sleep, I choose to be […]
How do you help your kids want to eat more vegetables? The simple answer is to offer them more vegetables. Sound too easy? I promise, it’s not. Research has actually shown that the kids who are offered more vegetables eat more vegetables. Makes sense, right? But sometimes it doesn’t seem so easy, especially when you […]
Birthday month is finally over. Joe is now 5, Leila is now 3, and I am now tired. Jeff’s birthday in March begins birthday month where we have 3 birthdays and many more celebrations, including Easter, in a span of 30 days. For someone who doesn’t like to bake, I’ve made a lot of cakes […]

Last month it hurt me to walk a 5k. A few months before that, it hurt me to turn over in bed. Last Friday I ran for 20 minutes and felt great. I am so thankful. You should have seen the look on my chiropractor’s face yesterday when I told him that I had run […]
Have you ever had collard greens before? Until recently, my only experience with collards had been Southern style, swimming in bacon, served next to a giant pan of mac ‘n cheese. When Jeff and I were first married, we spent 2 baseball seasons living in Birmingham, Alabama. He played for the Birmingham Barons, and I […]
Last week, the California Walnut people asked me if I would like a bag of their walnuts. Free walnuts? Yes please! A few days later, I had a big bag of fresh walnuts, hand-packed and tied up in a cute little burlap bag. For breakfast, I tossed together some vanilla So Delicious coconut yogurt with […]
