A Season of Convenience

March 15, 2011

That sounds like a romance novel title, doesn’t it? 🙂 As you know, it’s tax time and that’s when I do my usual disappearing act.  I also rely more on convenience foods because it’s just one less thing to have to think about.   I make no apologies for it, this is what works for Mr. […]

Lunch lady?

July 7, 2010

My new motto of “fake it ’til you make it” is off to an auspicious start! By the way, I will always remember how to spell “auspicious” since it was my Waterloo at a county spelling bee in elementary or middle school. But don’t worry, I’m sure some other little brown kid won it that […]

Friday night out — FIGO + Yoforia

June 18, 2010

I tell you, I have got to get back on the cooking wagon.  Eating out for lunch and/or dinner most days is not good for the wallet or waistline. Anyway . . . Mr. Spice and I decided to meet for dinner in Vinings, not too far from where we live.  There’s lots of cute […]

March 22, 2010

I couldn’t stay away from you guys for too long!  Thanks for being so understanding about needing a little break.  🙂 Spring and fall are my two favorite seasons, mainly because we get a reprieve from the cold weather of the winter and the hot humidity of the summer.  Plus they are the seasons of […]

Keeping warm + guest post

February 10, 2010

BRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! I am ready for it to get warmer.  Really.  Even though we haven’t had any snow, minus a few errant flurries this morning, I’m still going to complain about how cold it was today. I decided to chance it and go weigh in today since I don’t know how crazy my schedule will be […]

I got the munchies

January 28, 2010

No, I didn’t partake of any illegal substances.  I think it’s the morning workouts – you know, stoking the metabolism fire earlier in the morning so it’s raring to go all day. Or something. Day 4 of morning exercise!  I didn’t fight with myself this morning, I almost bounded out of bed instead! Well, as […]

Slowly getting back on track

January 21, 2010

It’s getting there. My eating is slowly getting back under control.  Slow and steady progress, I need to remember it’s  not a race. I weighed in today and had a .2 lb loss.  Last week I stayed the same.  It’s still progress!  I have to remember that with my body it takes like 2 weeks […]

June 24, 2009

This cake is so French — simple yet elegant. There, I said it. I’d heard of French yogurt cake before and found a recipe for it in Dorie Greenspan’s book Baking: From My Home to Yours that I had intended to try, but I ended up finding an even easier version on Recipezaar. Why I […]
