Delicious Zucchini Bread

Zucchini is a seriously underrated vegetable. I have never met a zucchini that I didn’t like and although I usually eat it in a healthful dish, I simply cannot resist zucchini bread. Even though zucchini is really a summer vegetable, baking breads is something I enjoy doing in the fall since only crazy people turn their ovens on during summers in this […]

Alzheimer’s Research and a Cure: How You Can Help

Take a moment and think about the person you love the most. Now imagine that person forgetting who you are. As we age, we all lose some of our mental sharpness, but with Alzheimer’s disease the toll is much larger. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, but it is important to remember that it is not a normal […]

Forgiving My Imperfect Parents

I didn’t have the most stable and functional childhood in history, of that I am sure. But I have come to realize that is really doesn’t matter. Well, not much anyway. I know so many people who still blame their parents for how their adult lives turned out and who still hold grudges against their […]

Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain (Review and Giveaway) (09/22)

We love pizza around here…who doesn’t? My kiddos are regular pizza engineers and they love to build this cheesy treat. I recently got the opportunity to try Pillsbury’s new Artisan Pizza Crust which has whole grain.  I usually try to make my food from scratch, but I find that using pre-made pizza dough saves a ton of time. Since […]

How to Run Faster Than That Voice in Your Head

These are my big ol’ size 9.5 feet. These feet have taken me far as an athlete. They have helped me land gracefully when I ran hurdles, helped me stay balanced on rocky hiking trails, and begrudgingly helped me cross the finish line in my only half marathon run.  But these days the hardest work they do is help carry around my extra 20 […]

Barbie Fashion Show at My House

Having a daughter really changed my life. Even though I was obviously a little girl myself once, I am perpetually surprised at how much my daughter already cares about fashion and  style. What she wears really matters to her and she enjoys dressing up.  In our family we are big on modesty and emphasizing inner beauty, but this mom has to […]

Guacamole Chipotle Style

This is the guacamole that made me love guacamole.  I spent years abhorring anything with avocados but have recently been converted into an avocado lover. My favorite guacamole recipe is a very delicious copycat of Chipotle’s guacamole. I found this recipe online at www.chipotlefan.com. The recipe below makes about 1 cup or so, depending on the size of the […]
