Super Simple Salmon Supper

People that know me know that I am loud.  I am pretty much always loud.  But what some people may not know is that depending on the day or my mood my speech has several different ways of connoting itself. If I have been talking (or tawking) to my Mom, my sister or my bro-in-law my accent goes very Jersey.   It is a pure Exit 10,  South ...

Asian Chicken Salad

Recently I posted a recipe for my Junk in the Trunk Chicken.  A super easy, healthy one dish meal that anyone can make. Since it is just me and the Hubs in the house we always have at least half a chicken left over.   Ok, who am I kidding.  We have BARELY a half of chicken left over.  We may be a fun loving couple but we are extremely ...

Drinking That Gin and Juice

A few years ago gin and I suffered a bad break up.  After a pretty epic night at a friends cabin drinking G & T's on a hot summer night, I woke up the next morning to the realization that gin and I no longer got along.  Gin made me feel like crap.  Gin made me hate myself.  The very thought of gin made me want to puke.  That morning I ...

Salmon with Cool Cucumber Salad

As I have often mentioned in my blog I hate waste.  There is nothing more annoying to me than buying a tub of sour cream for some chili I was making, use about half and have the other half go to waste, unused and molding in the fridge.  Money down the drain!! So I have become the queen of mixing and matching ingredients in order to use them ...

When Irish Oatmeal is Smiling

Breakfast.  Never really been a fan.  In in the early years of my thin and unhealthy self I never ate breakfast, choosing to go from dinner the night before until lunch the next day without eating.  And even now in my thin and healthy self I am not a huge lover of breakfast. But I eat it. I eat it because I need to. Because I get up at ...

Calendar Girl

Well here we are.  One month in to the new year and eleven more months to go.  By now most of us are in the thick of winter.  Some of us holed up inside away from this crazy weather sweeping the country.  It's also this time of year I think most of us we are looking forward to and planning ski holidays, spring breaks, summertime, and so ...

Your Boobs

October is coming to an end and so is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  If you haven't had your yearly mammogram this month then at least make sure you schedule one.  And, as always, remember to do your self examination.  Your boobies will thank you!

Pea & Dill Soup

Peas have not always been a particularly sexy veg.  In fact they have been made downright frumpy and dumpy by being canned with carrots, thrown in as an after thought to a frozen "mixed vegetable medley" and often turned into a grey-green swill that some establishments pass off as split pea soup. I however find peas positively stunning.  ...

The Incredible Edible Egg!

For as long as I can remember eggs have been beaten up, yes, pun intended as the ne'er do well brother in the breakfast world family.  But over the past few years research has been piling up showing that not only are eggs good for you, it turns out they are way better for our bodies than we ever thought. And right off the giddy-up ...

How I got this way

How did I get this way? That is a question many people ask me.  Hopefully they mean it in the sense of my ability to be a healthy living, yet occasional hard living person and not because they are wondering how much toxic waste I induced growing up in New Jersey which has made me a bit of a freak. My journey started in September of 2004.  ...
