Chewies

Another visit to another restaurant last Thursday. I went out for food 5 days in a row! This used to be a big part of my life, but more recently I spend my time cooking or being cooked for and rarely eat out. I LOVE restaurants, trying new foods and critiquing everything in them, but…

Gorilla Foods

Hey guys. I know it’s been a few days. It’s been nuts with all the things going on. On Wednesday I went for lunch with my friend and former colleague and she surprised me with Gorilla Foods. I was so excited because I had gone past this place so many times but never been in….

Last Day at Ignite – Carrot Cake Muffins

Today was my last day at my job I’ve had for over 2 years. I was an IT (Information Technology recruiter) for a family owned and operated company. In my experience, companies that are family owned and operated wee great on one hand, but tough on the other. In this case I had maximized my…

Part 1 – Goals

As you know I have struggled with my body image and weight loss my whole life. As I’ve spent more time focusing on health rather than weight I have bit by bit become more comfortable in my skin. About 2.5 years ago I was at what I felt was the closest to my ideal weight…

Weekend Update – Friends & Bread making

Mixer: First attempt

All this excitement with the new mixer, and I finally got to use it! I really wanted to make those Paleo cookies but I need my Cuisinart Food Processor, not my mixer. I was then going to make a Gluten Free Coconut Lemon Lime Syrup Meringue cake, but I started too late and didn’t want…

Exciting Day!

Today was a crazy day. It was full of emotions that I haven’t felt in some time. Today I gave notice at my current job as I accepted a new position! It was exciting, scary, happy and sad to be “closing one door, so another one could open”. I am excited about what the future…

La Cuisine (the kitchen) Where the magic happens

For those of you who don’t know me I have a bit of an obsession with food. I wasn’t kidding when I said I like to make my grocery list, shop for my items, put them away in the fridge and pantry and of course cooking/baking and eating them (or feeding friends) What has always…

The Beginning – Butter is better.

When you put something out to the universe you often do this because you hope to get what you’re asking for. At times you don’t ask but the universe keeps putting something in your face. That is the case with my blog. And so after many months of the universe telling me to do this, here…
