I can’t believe it’s December already – November flew by! When Christmas decorations first appear in the store I always think Christmas is so far away…then, BOOM, December sneaks up and Christmas is just around the corner. My December challenge was inspired by the book The Obesity Code by Jason Fung. Side note, a book overview is coming soon, I promise, November totally got away from me and I spent all month running!
‘Tis the season for fresh cranberries!! I knew after Thanksgiving I wanted to make a fresh cranberry drink but I struggled with what I should use to make it sweet. Cranberries are so tart but I didn’t want to mix it with simple syrup or cranberry juice. I was thinking…orange and cranberry go so well together, why wouldn’t tangerine work? The combination of cranberries and tangerine is actually delectable! And this entire drink is only four ingredients! Actually, my mom has a tangerine tree outside her house in Arizona. I totally forgot this…. I went to the store to buy […]
It is starting to get cold outside and this is a good meal to ease back into cooking inside with the oven. In the summer we seem to grill almost every night – our default cooking method. These stuffed bell peppers have to be one of my favorite meals, EVER! They are so good and so versatile.

And it’s super easy to make!
I am so appreciative of all the healthy Thanksgiving side options from magazines, my other blogger friends, and, of course, Pinterest. Thanksgiving does not need to be filled with marshmallows and jello salad (yuck!). That said, I love all the Thanksgiving sides… even more than the turkey. However, I can’t get onboard with the canned cranberry sauce. My family always makes everything from scratch – I wouldn’t have it any other way. Our Blue Basket delivery included fresh cranberries. I wanted to use them for something non-traditional – something other than cranberry sauce – when I came up with the […]
Enter wild Alaskan Salmon. Have you seen the difference in color between store bought salmon and wild salmon? It’s amazing. The store bought salmon is usually a light blush with a hint of orange. The wild salmon is truly salmon color (like the JCrew shorts).The color of wild salmon is about 100X more pleasing on the plate and for your tastebuds. I’ve followed Salmon Sisters for years now but re-visited their website recently and found they sell fish – fish that they caught! They are very transparent about where the fish comes from, who processes it – even the captain […]
