Basically, my dream post-gym dinner.
I wasn’t even planning to blog this one, but it turned out to be really pretty. Oh, and it was delicious!
What’s better than a fried egg? Almost nothing, except a fried egg with grits.
Ok, obviously this is not actually a taco, or going into tacos. But it seemed like less of a transgression than claiming this was “Mexican” or even “Mexican-ish.” Basically, it incorporates a lot of flavors you might also find at taco night. Green chiles, bell peppers and so forth. And more importantly, it’s pretty darn […]
I love meals that are full of veggies. Especially if I can use the entire veggie – this one incorporates the tops of the radishes I put in, for instance. Also, it’s kinda purty, don’t you think? Let’s talk about edible flowers for a second, by the way: I have seen them at so many […]
What a day. I am emotionally exhausted after the US World Cup game. I’m sure it’s my emotions and not the beer that totally drained me. I think. It’s 9:45 and I am fighting to stay awake and finish up this blog post. Once upon a time I went to bed between 1 and 2 […]

For some reason I hadn’t made risotto in a while, until this evening. It has been a bit of a crazy Monday, but I feel that I’ve been pretty productive. Work was very busy – we’re planning a huge, awesome girl event for the fall – and there’s just always a lot going on. Before […]
When Pete, Aggie and Sidney were over the other day, Dave made homemade pho for dinner. Delicious homemade vegetable broth simmered all afternoon in our kitchen. Later we added the rice noodles, lime, sriracha, sprouts and more to make this beauty. Turns out, it was excellent pre-race food as we both did very well in […]
This dinner is veggies at their best: roasted in a little bit of oil for a long time. I admit, it’s not the quickest recipe ever, but boy is it worth it! Also, it’s under 350 calories. I served it with a side of roasted chickpeas, which put the whole meal at right about 500 […]
