Sausage, White Bean, and Kale Soup


I’ve been in a dinner slump lately.  Actually, I’ve been in a breakfast, lunch, and dinner slump.  Mostly because I’ve just been in a slump period.  With the change in seasons and going off medications this past August, I’ve been feeling in need of some comfort, some warmth.  I’ve had to adjust my expectations of […]

Days 1 and 2: Meat and Vegetables, Meat and Vegetables…Stay AWAY from the Candy

Holy sweet tooth, Batman!

I took the plunge yesterday and starting cutting those carbs. It wasn’t too terrible, other than I didn’t plan any snacks. By 10:00 yesterday morning, my tummy was rumbling.

Gluten-free Experiment – Month One

“It’s just a half of a brownie, Heather. What harm could it do?” I was sitting in Starbucks with my daughter after her ballet class, flipping through magazines. I’d gotten her a blondie with M&Ms as a treat. It had been three weeks since I’d eaten anything with gluten in it. That morning, we’d slept […]
