Seems Like a Lifetime Ago

Saturday, January 29, 2011      4 comments

I recently bumped into some photos my best friend posted of me right before I moved to Seattle. We made this big road trip from Denver to Seattle. Apparently she took some pictures I had forgotten about. I was shocked. Read more

My New Recipe/Cooking/Fitness Blog!

Friday, January 28, 2011      1 comments

I receive a lot of great comments on my food/cooking blogs, so I've decided to take another swing at making a food blog! I'll still keep blogging my fitness and health goals on Spark, but I'm moving my recipes off to my new blog: shortc... Read more

Turkey and Stuffing Pot Pie

Thursday, January 27, 2011      2 comments

I've often wondered why most of us only eat turkey during holidays. It's delicious, and figure friendly since it is very low in fat and high in protein. The benefits of buying a turkey post holidays is it is very inexpensive, and there's no pr... Read more

Finding Inspiration, and Not Jealousy

Wednesday, January 26, 2011      6 comments

Often when reading the message boards, you'll find posts from frustrated Sparkers with comments like this: "I hate my skinny friend. She eats whatever she wants, and never gains weight." "I hate going to the gym because of all the ski... Read more

Single Serve Apple Crisp

Tuesday, January 25, 2011      4 comments

One of the things I really miss about living in Washington state is the orchard fresh, sweet, crisp apples. Fuji and gala are two of my favorite varieties. Now that I live in the south, they are a bit harder to come by. Buying apples at t... Read more

Starting Over

Monday, January 24, 2011      9 comments

The holidays were not good to me. I'm pretty much glad they are over, and I'm looking forward to a clean slate with the new year. Between holiday food, holiday depression, general depression, and just plain lack of motivation, I've discove... Read more

Delicious Ramen Noodles

Tuesday, January 18, 2011      2 comments

When I say 'Ramen Noodles", what do you think of? Did you think of this? Ack! Ramen noodles is the 'national food' of Japan. It's healthy, and delicious. ... Read more

Easy, Fast Lasagna

Sunday, December 12, 2010      3 comments

Easy. Fast. Not two words that are usually combined with "lasagna". Many of us have the stereotypical image of the Italian mother/grandmother simmering sauces and taking all day (and all the dishes in the house) to make lasagna. Most of ... Read more

Easy Chicken Chili

Tuesday, November 02, 2010      3 comments

Sometimes I think back on my old life, and I just shake my head in disbelief. I didn't know how to cook for the longest time because I had this image in my head of cooking taking a long time and a lot of preparation. There certainly are me... Read more

Steak and Ale Stew

Friday, October 15, 2010      6 comments

Steak and ale pie is one of the British classics. It's my fiance's favorite food. Having a dish reminds him of home. British food, like American, doesn't have a reputation for being top tier cuisine. If you said you were going out for "F... Read more

Corner a Cat and it Will Kill You

Thursday, October 14, 2010      8 comments

Ever heard the saying? There's a step before this. Give a cat a bath and it will put you in the hospital. I'm not one of those people that gives cats baths regularly. Neither of us particularly enjoy the task very much. So I only do... Read more

Coq Au Vin in a Crockpot

Wednesday, October 13, 2010      3 comments

With all this talk about French food, I got inspired! Coq au vin is one of those French classics. Julia Child taught America how to make it. The name inspires images of haute cuisine. Just like Spanish paella, though, coq au vin has ... Read more

Obesity in the US and UK

Tuesday, October 12, 2010      9 comments

Yesterday, I noted how much healthier a French/Spanish diet is compared to the US. Today I'm going to talk about the similarities with the country that is very similar to us with our obesity crisis: England. Culture wise, I think Canadians... Read more

Eating for Pleasure

Monday, October 11, 2010      4 comments

About 7 years ago, I did a lot of research on weight loss and good health. I was with eDiets at the time, not Spark, but they both had a common theme. In order to lose weight and be healthy, you have to get the right nutrition, portion size an... Read more

Asian/Mediteranean Inspired Week, and Weekly Count

Saturday, October 09, 2010      0 comments

On Sunday, I wrote a blog titled "The Sunday Sous Chef". I explained how I chopped up all my veggies for the week so it was easier to make meals. Here's the start picture: Read more
