Roasted Moroccan Chicken Salad

I don’t guess I need to go into detail about how loudly I screamed last night when you know who made it into the the Idol finale, do I? What about how ridiculously awesome I looked with imaginary pom poms cheering, “TWO FOUR SIX EIGHT WHO DO WE WANNA RUN AWAY WITH TO A REMOTE […]

Vegetarian Mexican Salad Boats

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the. . .plate. So, I can’t decide if it’s really really sad or really really awesome that the only Oscar nominated movie I’d seen was Bridesmaids.

The Root of Happiness

I always forget how much I appreciate a big salad for dinner. They tend to be a lunchtime staple for me, and so often the idea of coming home after a long day to a plate of lettuce leafs lacks a bit of satisfaction appeal. Plus, it’s winter. We are supposed to be craving starches […]

I Do Say Hash Alot.

I have the house to myself today.  Do you know what this means? I get to do yoga, deep clean, take a long walk, sit on the sofa and read my book in silence and, well, blog!  (Cue angels singing.)  So to get my day started, I made one of my favorite breakfast creations.  It […]
