I just wrote a whole post and with a flick of the finger accidentally erased the whole thing. Don’t you hate when that happens? And of course this is blogger so I can’t just hit ‘undo’ and make everything right again. Oh, the horrors. Black Beans with Salsa Cruda have been on my mind since […]

I had two objectives tonight: healthy and light. I had taken out some tilapia this morning to have for dinner and had a red onion earmarked for the meal.

There was a time during our courtship where I allowed him to do the majority of the cooking. Adhering to his love, it was sirloin strip steaks all the time served in two varieties […]

During my unfortunate foray into dieting the Atkins way, I was frustrated by the amount of meat the diet forced me to consume. It was like one of those bad nightmares where you open your mouth and keep trying to scream but can’t. Somehow I managed to stick with it for about six weeks. Thinking […]
