Southwestern Stuffed Spaghetti Squash


I remember the first time someone told me about spaghetti squash, and I was all, “No way, dude. There’s just no way squash does that. ” And they were like, “Yes it does! You stick a fork in it and it gets all wrinkly like spaghetti.” And I was like, “Do whaaaaaa? You stick the […]

Indian-Spiced Roasted Vegetables Over Lentils


It’s time to be a good girl. It’s time to snuggle some vegetables, pony up to some fiber, group hug some fruit, and drink my way through an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Minus the chlorine. Not that I can’t appreciate a juicy mcgruicy burger from time to time, but after sampling 6 (SIX, you guys) of […]

Food Blog Forum…In Pictures


Well, we did it! We Nashville’d our booties off. We food blog forum’d our faces off. And it ruled, BIG TIME. Here’s the weekend, in pictures. We were on the road Friday morning by 4am. We made it to Nashville in 8 hours. (It’s a 9.5 hour trip. Just sayin’.) We arrived to the Nash […]

This time tomorrow morning, a couple of bloggy girlfriend bloggy bloggers and I will be well on our way to a city where country stars are born every 5 minutes.

Stuffed Peppers, Baby!


I’m drawn to red sauces. Well, red food in general. But I guess most red food is in sauce form. Right? I mean, other than red peppers and tomatoes, what else is red? OH, fruit. Apples, raspberries and strawberries. Those are red. And I can dig all of that, too. But if I want to […]

Black Quinoa With Shrimp and a Lot of Healthy Stuff


Today’s post is brought to you by….HEALTH. Um, I can totally sense a bucket of eye rolls from the male species. Wait, do I even have any male readers? Two? Three? Oh! Let’s see a show of hands! (This is the INTERWEB, lady. You can’t see jack.) Fine, have it your way. Anyway, after a […]

Cookbook Review and Mushroom Soup


Something really cool happened. Yes, I washed my hair, but that’s not what I’m talking about. Do you want to guess? Do you like guessing games? See, I do, but it seems like anytime I crave a good guessing game, everyone around me groans, rolls their eyes and would rather discuss oral hygiene. On turtles. […]

Home Again…Home Again…


We’re home! Man, you guys, Colorado knows how to party. Scenery gawking, trail-riding, wine sipping, stinky cheese tasting, nearly barfing from the smell of said stinky cheeses, hair net wearing, tea sampling, restaurant hopping, wine sipping, haunted hoteling, yogaing, farmer’s marketing, salsa tasting, wine sipping, early morning running, Pearle street lounging, wine sipping, yoga studio […]

They Call Us the Tea Ladies


Yesterday afternoon Laura and I went on a little mid-afternoon adventure. We walked across their apartment parking lot, through a small, lush dog park, across the street and down the long street entrance to the Celestial Seasonings headquarters and factory. They offer free tours, tea samples and HAIR NETS. We were exactly like Laverne and […]
