Crunchy, sweet and salty…

So, I originally posted this recipe about 3 years ago. It is a staple in my house.  One of my favorite foods with it's crunchy, sweet and salty goodness. It is a recipe I always have on hand and usually prep on Sunday for the week ahead. BUT, over the years I have...

20 Minutes is All I Need

Just 20 minutes and I feel like a new person! And what's even better - IT IS REALLY OK to take that downtime. Close your office door, go out to the car, turn off the computer...take a nap. I am definitely feeling like I need a nap today -  especially after a few...

Food and Art? Art and Food?

Ask me if I am "artsy" and I would say NO WAY. I cannot draw anything more than a stick figure. I cannot play the violin, guitar, drums or even my recorder from 3rd grade, for that matter. I am not a poet (although sometimes try to be) and I cannot sing. Not even when...

Addicted at 5:00AM

I workout at 5:30AM - 5 days a week. Ask me 5 years ago if I would get up at 5:00AM to workout ONE day a week and I would have said you are crazy! But now, I love it and I am addicted. Addicted to a good workout. Addicted to waking up each day and getting my blood...

Pause These Seasons…

Summer is almost over!! Some kids are back in school already and there are less than 2 weeks before our kids begin 6th and 8th grade. How does that happen? The older we (and they) get, the faster time passes. Pause. Time flies when you are having fun. This spring and...

Summer is Never the Same Without…

Watermelon! Watermelon: luscious & juicy red fruit with hard green outer layer. Nutritional powerhouse. Cut into triangle wedges, we ate it as kids as our moms shoved us back outside to play. Our slices were full of black seeds that we would spit at our siblings...
