If there is one thing that I have learned since this past Christmas, it’s that there are few things in life that are better than fresh baked, homemade bread! It wasn’t always pretty, but thankfully, I think I’ve finally found my go-to loaf: French Baguettes! If it wasn’t for my bread machine, I don’t know […]

Fortunately, that wasn’t the only recipe that had caught my eye! Tonight’s meal was another Cooking Light feature… Chicken Souvlaki Pitas with Tahini […]

It seems like lately, I just can’t get enough peanut butter in the mornings. It’s all I’m craving! So it should come as no surprise that today’s breakfast is an exact replica of yesterday’s. The only difference in today’s combo was some raisins. Too bad I hadn’t thought about it yesterday…it was a nice little […]

For being a Monday, today really hasn’t been too shabby. How ‘bout that?? It must be the amazing dinner I just finished… Or maybe it had something to do with the kick-butt workout I started my day off with this morning. Only 2 hits of the snooze button allowed me a little extra time than […]

Tonight’s dinner was a REAL treat! There are only a handful of meals that can really get my husband excited; anything that includes beef, and he’s a happy camper.
