Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower

We tried something new with dinner last night: Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower. Vea was pretty skeptical, me a little less so. After all, buffalo wings are good, cauliflower is good. How could it go wrong? I was prepared for an initial objection. In these instances, I know that “no” doesn’t always mean “no”. I was prepared […]

Positivity, a new ‘do, and more good food!

Hey everybody! It was another terrific Tuesday: sunny skies, snow on Mauna Kea and an abundance of fresh healthy food to eat. I found myself feeling so grateful – which is an absolutely inspiring way to go through the day. Have you heard the saying “energy flows where your attention goes” ? Because this is completely […]

Juicy Jabong (Do you even want to know?)

On Friday night I was browsing articles on Pinterest when I came across an article about weight management. Supposedly studies have shown that people who eat one grapefruit a day are more successful with weight management. That got me to thinking… “Hmmm. Grapefruit. Never tried it. Wonder if I’d like it??” I then made a mental note […]

Margaritas, enchiladas, paniolo spanish rice…

First things first: my little buddy Charlie Rose is nuzzled into the crook of my arm as I’m typing. I’m taking that as an order to gush about her cuteness before I talk about anything else. 😉 She had another trip to Shear Magic yesterday to get all prettied up. She was pretty disappointed that […]

Fauxtatoes – have you tried ’em?

Happy ALMOST Friday! I hope you’re all staying warm and dry.  Those of you in Northeast Kansas have been in my thoughts, especially when I catch myself ready to whine about our weather. Thanks for all the fun pictures of snowy driveways, cattle in snowy pastures, kids in snow forts and moms and dads on sleds! It sure makes me grateful […]

I ate lunch with Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone.

Okay, so that might be a stretch. What actually happened is I had some amazingly tasty grub at Maui Tacos, who happens to have a wall of fame that highlights their celebrity clientele. The main seating area was full so I ended up at the little bar area right in front of these guys. It […]

Fruits-n-Veggies rock. (And PIE does too.)

Well happy weekend, everyone! This has been a fun week in the blogosphere. It’s always fun to discover new people  (a new favorite is “We Shall Have Pie” – authored by two women who run “for pride and pie”. (Hellloooooooooooo!!! I haven’t fully expressed my love for pie here, but trust me, I. LOVE. PIE. These […]

What can I say… I’m happy today!

Hi buddies 🙂 How’s everyone feeling today? I’m feeling GREAT! No doubt, because my attitude is in check and my healthy choices are outweighing the unhealthy ones lately. Today was pretty much a dream day – in that I was organized, got things done, and pulled off a pretty impressive work / life balance. (Is […]

Grow anyway.

Earlier this week, I caught a glimpse of this little guy shedding his skin. Transformation in all it’s simple glory. Sometimes the thought of growth is scary. Especially when it seems that the present reality no longer fits, and the details of the future have yet to take shape. Trusting life to fill in the gaps may feel […]
