If you are trying to lose weight unsuccessfully, today’s video might shed light on a reason why that you did not previously think of before.  Sure it’s controversial, and not everyone likes what I have to say but instead of leaving an excuse disguised as a comment, ask if you are being honest with yourself?  […]

Who doesn’t love pizza right? While I admit I only order it if I’m hungover (because it tastes so much better), I enjoy making my own healthier versions regularly at home for an on the go snack especially if my nephews are in town.  I’ve mentioned in the past that I am not the biggest […]

Thankfully, I had all the necessary ingredients and kitchen tools on hand, which is surprising since I use them probably twice a year. Macarons are made with almond flour making them […]

I shared on Instagram yesterday a new chicken meatloaf recipe. I forget how easy they are to make and convenient to have on hand. They don’t need additional flavor, but the mustard lover that I am, had to put a bit on top. I bought 4 small jars at Stonewall Kitchen over Christmas and was […]

Finally, today I’m sharing a recipe that is a victory for my kitchen. I’ve been obsessed with the lemon ginger nama shoyu special sauce that Life Alive (a restaurant in Cambridge) puts on their goddess bowls. I started trying to recreate it back in the late fall and finally mastered it. The sauce goes great […]

A traditional muffin recipe is made with butter, milk and lots of sugar. It’s basically a cupcake that is not covered in frosting, which I guess is supposed to make it a reasonable option to start your day?! I do love muffins, especially Morning Glory, the kind with carrots, walnuts and raisins. It reminds me […]
