Father’s Day

I recently posted about how I’m immersed in reading The China Study. Well, I’m still reading it, and I continue to learn something new every time I pick it up. I’m usually not the type to try and push my beliefs onto others; in fact I’m quite the opposite. I think that everyone has the … Continue reading

Memorial Day Grilling – Yum!

Memorial Day weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the year. Even if it’s been warm enough outside already, it really is the first weekend that everyone makes a point to get to the beach or host a BBQ. It also happens to be the same weekend as my best friend’s birthday, so needless … Continue reading

Root Veggies

Oh, how I love root veggies! It’s a little bit like a love affair actually.

St. Patrick’s Day

This St. Patrick’s Day, I’m venturing out of my comfort zone and making Irish soda bread. I’ve never made any sort of bread before, but figured St. Patty’s Day was the perfect time to try!

National Sweet Potato Month

Happy National Sweet Potato Month! I absolutely adore sweet potatoes. When I was little, my dad used to make them for me all the time. So much so, my family came to know they should have sweet potatoes made whenever they saw me. Now that I think about it, I’m pretty sure my dad prepared … Continue reading
