Rules I Live By & Low Carb Bagels

Throughout our lives, we’ve been given a hefty dose of advice and “words of wisdom” from our friends, family and anyone else who just feels like they should chime in and I have to admit, I’ve been one of those people. I mean, who hasn’t?  Some of the advice is good but some of it…

My New Kitchen Gadget

I got a new toy and I want to shout out to the world…. “THIS THING ROCKS!”  I don’t know about you, but I have always been nervous to try my hand at pressure cooking. I have visions of steaming my face off and not in a relaxing facial kind of way.  I remember our…

Tomatillo Salsa and Kale Lime Caesar Salad

It’s a long weekend and it is so hot here that all I want to do is stay in my nice cool house and putter, so that is what I am doing.  It was a perfect opportunity to hang out in my kitchen! Since it has been kind of low key, I thought I would…
