Almond Chocolate Milkshake

Comments Off on Almond Chocolate Milkshake

Inspired by my brother’s want for a milkshake from Red Robin last week, I had healthy milkshakes on my mind all weekend and wanted to see if my own advice could stand up. I had suggested that for far less calories you could make the milkshake at home.
After a great weekend, Phil and I decided tonight sounded like a good night to experiment. So after dinner, I went for a run. I did have to earn that dessert 😉 . …

VitaTops 100 Calorie Muffin Tops- Tasty Alternative to Granola Bars or Diet Cookies

Comments Off on VitaTops 100 Calorie Muffin Tops- Tasty Alternative to Granola Bars or Diet Cookies

VitaTops 100 Calorie Muffin Tops- Tasty Alternative to Granola Bars or Diet Cookies.
Somewhere along the way I heard about these awesome/healthy treats. I tried them last week and loved them.
What I don’t love? The price. I’ll be shopping around for who has the best deal but so far love the VitaTops and will look/for and try other Vitalicious products.
I had the deep chocolate tops first. Very yummy and yet only 100 calories with a good balance of fiber and protein. …

Recipe to Try: Herbed Turkey Meatball Subs

Comments Off on Recipe to Try: Herbed Turkey Meatball Subs

Earlier this week, I was flipping through my pile of recipes.
Yes, literally, it’s currently a pile on our kitchen table. (**Phil, I will be organizing and cleaning it up soon, I promise).
I love digging through food magazines and looking for good recipes to try and experiment with. A bonus if it’s lower in calories and yet has an interesting flavor profile. Love it when they show me how to combine different herbs and spices to kick up the taste.
In the …

Flour Girl

Comments Off on Flour Girl

Thought you might enjoy laughing at a recent picture of me. Ever since I was a little kid, whenever I bake, I get flour all over myself. Pizza, homemade noodles, cookies, and bread, doesn’t matter, there is more flour on me than anywhere else.

Who cares if you make a mess in the kitchen… it’s how much you enjoy playing in the kitchen that matters!

Restaurant Review: Grill 225

1

Let me start this post with a big heartfelt congratulations to my parents. They survived 40 years of marriage to each other :-)! Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!
On their anniversary, October 17th, we went downtown to Grill 225 to celebrate. How cool are my parents to involve us in their dinner celebration? Especially how cool when you consider they took us to a restaurant we had been eager to try. Grill 225 is one of (if not the) premier steak …

Adventures in Baking Apple Pie

5

A couple weekends ago, I baked my very first pie. I would have documented such a monumental event sooner but I had some very important events interrupt my posting – my birthday, my parents visiting, a birthday party hosted by Phil’s parents, and more. It was a crazy, busy couple of weeks. But, let’s get onto the good news.
My pie tasted fantastic. Even my mom said so. She said if I baked like this and Phil cooked as well as …

A Most Wonderful, Happy, Birthday Dinner

Comments Off on A Most Wonderful, Happy, Birthday Dinner

Last night reminded me of why I am the luckiest girl in the world. For my 31st birthday, yes I am firmly cemented in my 30s now, Phil prepared another beyond amazing meal (last year it was a baked potato, broccoli, and filet mignon). I was speechless. Quite a feat for me. I just couldn’t believe the meal he made. He found the biggest, best tasting scallops ever at Whole Foods. They were almost a pound! He then made this …

Homemade Italian Wedding Soup

1

Perhaps this post should be titled “I love Kale” or “Girl Falls in Love with Kale” or “Thank Goodness Fall is Back So We Can Enjoy Soup Again.” Either way, I asked Phil this past weekend to pick us up some kale because I have been loving it lately. Plus, as a bonus, it’s a super cheap vegetable. At Whole Foods, it was 2 big bunches for $3 or at Publix, a big bag was only $2.
Then, I asked Phil …

Keeping it Real: My Healthy Lifestyle Theme

Comments Off on Keeping it Real: My Healthy Lifestyle Theme

I’m not one to shy away from the truth especially when it comes to being honest about living a healthy lifestyle. It’s not easy. Or well, it’s not easy when you’re not genetically gifted and really enjoy cooking and baking. So therefore, it hasn’t been easy for me.
But after all I’ve been through and learned trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I’ve come to appreciate one thing.
If I’m going to live a healthy life and when needed, lose weight, I …
