Broccoli Bites

Most days, I look in the mirror and don’t even recognize this person I have become. I look at the old me and the person I am now and feel like they are 2 separate yet equally important parts of me. That old version showed me what I didn’t want […]

Sweet Brussels Sprout Bacon Bake

Not going to lie….This sounds hideous (this coming from my cousin who I love for telling it like it is), even for a non picky eater which I can claim to be these days! 😉 But something about it is just darn good! What is it about this that makes […]

Want to have fun while making lunch?

No Churn Grapefruit Gelato

I had never seen a green grapefruit! (If you read my blog posts, that probably doesn’t surprise you). But what may surprise you is that my husband who is a daily grapefruit eater, hasn’t either! So I do what I normally do when I don’t know how to use something. […]
