Asparagus Quiche – without the crust

The other night I made dinner for a friend and I made the most delicious asparagus quiche. I just polished off another serving for lunch and it tasted even better today. I’ve made plenty of crustless quiches before but never with asparagus. I forgot how amazing asparagus can be. This is a pretty easy recipe…

Social media detoxing – all you need is love

Tonight while binge watching season two of Sex and the City, I hopped onto Facebook to see what was happening. Someone from my old office made the announcement that she was leaving the site to focus on her family. And while the thought of not seeing her adorable baby photos, I have to admit –…

Living Well: September is PCOS Awareness Month

It’s after ten at night on Monday and I’ve been sitting here most of the evening wondering what to write for my weekly health article when I saw an article trending on Twitter. I know. Twitter. It’s not my favorite place to pick up ideas from – but there it was. An article from Pop…

Fall Fitness Goals

Here we are at Monday morning again. It’s foggy, dark and wet outside again. The leaves are quickly falling off the trees. The leaves that are left have all turned orange, yellow and brilliant shades of red. I noticed the beauty of the River Valley on my way home from dad’s house on the weekend….

Searching for the perfect blueberry scone recipe

Here we are at Monday morning again. The weekend flew by! Yesterday was a quiet day. It was so cold outside and inside my condo. This morning – it’s PLUS SIX degrees. I refuse to turn my heat on based on principle. My diet was terrible this weekend. I felt tired and didn’t have much…

Pork Stew – a mostly healthy recipe

I tried making a stew tonight in the IntantPot and it failed miserably. For one, I forgot to remove the plastic sheet from the meat package. Oops. The instantpot warned me my food was burning even though the valve is automatic. So, I stopped cooking, waiting two minutes for the pot to “release the steam”…

Fall has arrived early – the year is fading fast

This morning was rough. I couldn’t sleep last night and kept saying to myself, “just one more hour, and then I’ll get up.” My plans to wake up at 7:30 am and have a productive day turned into climbing out of bed at 1:00 pm. I don’t know what happened. A few weeks ago I…
