Opps..I burned it again!

This was not my first fist fight with the edamame.   Fortunately, I have years of experience scortching one of my favorite green soy bean snacks. By scorthcing I infatically mean burning the food past the point of edible. But yes, oops I did it again...so sue me! Years ago, while hosting one of my infamous… Continue reading Opps..I burned it again!

Pep up the popcorn pep up the popcorn

I'm a pizzazz kind of girl.  I add a little extra extra to almost everything.  From outfits to  meals, I like to jazz life up with a hint of sparkle, spice, a dash of sweet and all that is in bewteen. Last weekend I had a classic case of the munchies.  I was jonesing for… Continue reading Pep up the popcorn pep up the popcorn

Foolish Foods

Navigating a new healthy eating regimen can be difficult.  There is a ton of tom foolery in marketing "healthy foods."  These healthy spin tactics are designed to keep a fat rat on the wheel spinning into a  never ending frenzy. I want to move you off of the wheel and away from the maddening maze… Continue reading Foolish Foods

Junk food

In my wonderings, I often gaze out in the sky and imagine what it would be like to have a sit down and interview the CEO or founders of Little Debbie snack foods, Hostess or Nabisco. Like what even could be their premier mission statement? Would it be..."To sell sweet treats that make people happy"… Continue reading Junk food

Meal Prep Pep

Lite Chicken Salad

I'm sooo over it. Tell me you are too! I'm so worn on winter foods.  I'm tired of preparing the same o'le stuff.  It doesn't feel very Spring like in Texas and my taste buds are hankering for some fresh Spring-ish foods. Activation imagination. I had to pretend yesterday that it was 80 degrees outside… Continue reading Lite Chicken Salad

Appetizer

One of the country's most threatening issues is the growing APPETIZER epidemic! Appetizers are totally out of control and proportion.  Holy smokes,  I'm not even kidding right now and please don't try to act like you don't know what I'm talking about. If you have been to a restaurant in the past four weeks you… Continue reading Appetizer

Mindful Grubbing 

Today I'm held captive to staccato laughter and must begin with small side bar.  I was derailed from naming this blog post Mindful Munching because something in my goofy spirit and my girly snickering just couldn't allow it. I literally couldn't even write the first few sentences without COL, cackling out loud.  (take that teenagers)  I kept typing… Continue reading Mindful Grubbing

Part 2: A will & A way

Where there is the slightest will, there is always a way!  How many times have you heard this eye rolling trite remark? Sure it's a cheesy stale familiar cliché but I believe it deserves a healthy come back!  I have used this as a go to theme during the rapid changing phase of my 30's! Hopefully… Continue reading Part 2: A will & A way
