Happy holidays! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Good food and family- what else could you ask for? 🙂 I was in charge of making the sweet potato casserole. (I think I was given this task because I’m the only one that really likes it.) I used a recipe online that called for yams, butter, […]
Yesterday evening, I went to the gym and had an awesome workout. It blew my morning work outs out of the water and then some. Perhaps I’m more fit for an evening workout (pun intended!). I did an awesome cardio workout that helped keep me from getting bored- I did 10 minutes on the bike, […]
Two days until one of the greatest holidays of the year… Thanksgiving! I’m definitely looking forward to the sweet potato casserole (and the turkey and the stuffing and really everything else for that matter).

I roasted the chicken and asparagus in the oven with balsamic vinegar and spices while the potato cooked and the couscous heated up. Whenever asked my favorite food growing up, I would always answer “baked potato.” (I failed to mention the butter, […]
Good morning! This weekend I went home to visit my parents. They are both stellar cooks so I enjoyed myself! I decided to get a little crafty for dessert and attempted to make a 5 minute chocolate cookie I found on Pinterest. The consistency was a little off (probably because I used Greek yogurt in […]
