What do you do when you have tiki party leftovers? Make smoothies! Without the rum.
As much as I love baking for breakfast, on some of these summer mornings where you can already feel the heat coming at 8 a.m., a smoothie is in order.
I can’t believe the crazy amount of stuff we accomplished today and this weekend. We finished up some homemade orange liqueur. We made cake, scones, fish tacos, corn fritters, and of course, a cocktail. And, I got a ton of laundry done. But it’s been a hot one. The windows are all open and they […]
Ever since I’ve begun to widen my culinary horizons – I’d put the start date somewhere in high school – I’ve had one rule for myself: eat everything – even if I think I won’t or don’t like it (the only exception: insects/worms/slugs will be decided on a case-by-case basis). I’ve found that usually if […]
It’s been a while since I’ve done a smoothie recipe! Mostly because it is gross outside. But I was looking for a good pre-workout breakfast. I know I’ve been yakking about boot camp a lot lately, but I love that class! It’s like my favorite part of team sports practice – challenging yourself though conditioning […]

I had this a few minutes ago for breakfast, and it was so tasty that I preempted the beautiful cake I had planned to post and used this one instead: It was the perfect post-run breakfast. This is my first adventure using papaya personally. They are kind of expensive, but different and fun – the […]
Also known as Friday breakfast. At some point on Wednesday, a ripe peach was left on my desk. I have no idea from whence it came, but it smelled delicious and I took it home. And then, a few days later, I made it into this smoothie. I was also able to use the last […]
For me, last week was just crazy. There was BlogHer, of course, and the days before were very, very busy at my day job. One day during lunch I just went to the grocery store and bought a bunch of produce, so I wouldn’t be eating boxed mac and cheese every day while my husband […]
