Mexican Broccoli Soup

Hey friends! Wow, thank you so much for the wonderful response to Monday’s post. Being National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, I answered the questions you sent in, and I just couldn’t be more touched by the compassionate responses. So thank you. Tonight recipe is actually pretty near and dear to my heart, because it wasContinue reading Mexican Broccoli Soup

On & Off the Ice

The Winter Olympics have been ruined for me. No, not because a squirrel got hit during the snowboarding slalom race. Nor because a curler was caught doping. I mean, who knew that ice-shuffleboard was so physically taxing… Juuuust kidding. No, I’m talking about ice skating, sadly. Little known fact, when I was growing up, I wentContinue reading On & Off the Ice

Awareness VS. Understanding

Well hot dang! I was so delighted this morning when I woke up to find that a bunch of you ordered a FabFitFun box! I mentioned in last night’s recipe post that my sister-in-law and I were customizing my box, and I was getting so stinkin’ excited. It’s a quarterly box of over $250 worth of beautyContinue reading Awareness VS. Understanding

The Go-Between’ers

I felt a devastating familiarity, hearing about the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida yesterday. These tragedies have become all too common in our current world. Las Vegas, Orlando, Sandy Hook, San Bernadino, Manchester. It seems like every couple months, the list keeps getting longer and longer. It’s sickening. The prayers we pleadContinue reading The Go-Between’ers

Mexican Skillet Cakes

Happy Ash Wednesday! (And Valentine’s Day!) Ready or not, we’re officially kicking off the Lenten season today. And in my Catholic family, that always means one thing: no meat on Fridays. Growing up, we would always go to the Friday Night Fish Fry at my church. It was definitely something I looked forward to in ourContinue reading Mexican Skillet Cakes

An Ashy Valentine’s Day

Well, in case you were uncertain as to the relentless pace of time, allow me to be the first to remind you: Lent begins this week. I know. I can’t believe it either. It feels like literally two days ago that we were ringing in 2018. But yep – Ash Wednesday is here. And I’m personallyContinue reading An Ashy Valentine’s Day

Tied Up with String

🎵🎵🎵…These are a few of my favorite things. 🎵🎵🎵 So this is now the sixth attempt at a post. My writer’s block is in full swing – perhaps because my creative mind is across the world in India, dancing in a hot pink sari with elephants at the wedding-of-the-century I’m supposed to be attending rightContinue reading Tied Up with String

Zesty Rainbow Ribbon Salad

Thanks, everyone, for your kind words about my would-have-been trip to India. Obviously, the food situation with my Ulcerative Colitis was one of the factors in my decision not to go. But just because I have to follow this therapeutic Specific Carb Diet doesn’t mean I don’t eat delicious food on the reg. Case inContinue reading Zesty Rainbow Ribbon Salad
