The Amazing Artichoke!

I recently held a cooking and nutrition seminar with a support group of amazing ladies who are either currently in cancer treatment or are in recovery. To say it was inspiring just doesn’t do justice.  These women were warriors!   I am a firm believer that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger and have…

Low-Carb Cauli Fried “Rice”

    It’s of course that time of year, where we are all struggling to keep from breaking those new years resolutions,  hoping to lose a few more lbs and shred that winter weight.  I am a firm believer in watching carbs, primarily I say carbs and refer to wheat and grains.  Over the course…

For The Love of Fruitcake!

For the Love of Fruitcake! Let’s talk fruitcake, seriously?  If you are an American, you are probably rolling your eyes. If you are from nearly anywhere else in the world, your mouth may be watering from memories of this delicious holiday treat or dense and sweet wedding cake. Fruitcake is a very popular dessert throughout…

Can’t Beet This Salad! It’s Too Good To Beet-true!

Happy Monday Gang!  I’m still truckin on this fitness journey and six-week #fasterwaytofatloss boot-camp.  This morning began day one of week two in this carb cycling, intermittent fasting, HIIT training (still not sure what that means but ok?), heavy lifting, speed burst training, and  insulin manipulation cycle…thanks to the fitness gem and mastermind @amandatress. “HELP…

Maximizing Macros and I Still Eat Bread!

Today is day four of the #fasterwaytofatloss boot camp and I am loving it! I must say, @amandatress you are an amazing inspiration! Being a female entrepreneur myself, and having listened to her this week has provided me helpful insights and encouragement for the struggles I face daily! For the fist two days of this…

Boot Camp & Broccoli “Cheese” Dairy-Free Soup

My last post was all about guilty indulgences(#cinnamonandhoneycremebrulee) and boy did I ever satisfy my sweet tooth last week! (Halloween candy hangover) I knew if I didn’t get it out of my system, I would have little success with the boot camp I started today. (yes, I started yet another boot camp & fingers crossed I…

Back to School Bento

The month of August is like biting into a sour patch kid. The thought of getting back into morning routine, kids in bed by 8pm while the sun is still shining, sitting in carpool lane and packing lunches on the regular just puts a sour taste in my mouth! All the while, it’s our duty…

Summer Steamed…

Here’s my truth: sometimes I just overthink dinner, therefore making it stressful, making it a job and taking the joy out of cooking. In reality, dinner doesn’t have to be complicated; it can be as simple as steamed mussels in a gorgeous white wine broth served with a side of crusty bread and a block…

Spring Time = Salad Time

Who is ready for spring?  I think it’s safe to say, we have had our fair share of snow and cold weather this year in the bluegrass, and enough is enough!  Spring is one of the most beautiful times of year in Kentucky.  With horse racing season and the trees and flowers all in bloom….

Binner is a Winner!

I can remember as a kid I would get so excited when my mom would fix breakfast for dinner. Something different from the norm was fun! Not only is it quick and delicious, it’s nutritious, and the kid’s love it! Let me tell you, between being a mom, a business owner, and a chef;  there…

Game Thyme!

February surprisingly is full of food!   With mardi gras, fat Tuesday, super bowl, Valentine’s Day, and basketball season you are sure to be fumbling through recipes for a go-to winning dish.   Superbowl is undoubtedly known for four main food categories…Pizza, Wings, Chili and Chips & Dips. With this year’s big game falling so…
