Monday Musing, Making it work

Life gets busy, you wonder if anyone is listening to the message you are trying to send, but if you don’t speak at all how will anyone know? In an age of instant gratification for almost every need, there can be a lot of “noise” which voice do you listen to? Which commercial with the…

Timely Tuesday

I haven’t blogged in a while. There a few things that have been put on the “back burner”. I could use the excuse that my house is torn up, literally and that will be the one today! I finally decided to get new flooring… 11 years later. When I got this house, I hated the…

Monday Musings…. Cheesecake make over

The origin of cheesecake is uncertain, but it is believed that it was served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 BC. A recipe for cheesecake was found in a Roman treatise around 200 BC. Centuries later, cheesecake is still a favorite dessert, however if you are trying not to eat dairy, what…

I’m musing, even though it’s not Monday

Yesterday was Labor day, and while I “labored” over almost 30 miles on my bike, I otherwise took a break, rested, chilled! I ate a huge plate of yummy dairy free nachos covered in black beans, greens, avocado oh my!Saturday I had the pleasure of hosting a little Not so Cheesy workshop. What a fun…

’tis the season…

The photo text I received from my sister Cindy was one of her oldest daughter, athletic basketball player laying on an exam table in sweats… it’s the flu, pray, this is a BIG week! As most of you know if you have read this blog for any time, I don’t get the flu shot. (see…

Monday Musings… random “oneness”

There are some days I feel I could sit down and write forever, weaving words together, connecting thoughts and sharing truths about life, food, fun, family and faith… today I am struggling a little so I will do what my writing coach used to say… just start. Friday was a slow wake up day, then…

Monday Musings… no foolin’

Despite the blowing around of snowflakes out my window, it is April 1st! It is officially spring time, but then again it is Ohio! No foolin on this April 1st! I will not be shaken on this thought. I know that warm days are coming, and I know that I have said that the last…

Monday Musings-Chickpea Tagine

“I pray for good fortune in everything you do, and for your good health—that your everyday affairs prosper, as well as your soul!” As I sat down to type this, I realized it is February 4th. That means that one year ago today many of you joined myself and a few friends for the healthy…

Spring and “soup”

Two weeks ago I was pulling away from the Black Mountain Inn Bed and Breakfast and headed to my sisters. I wanted to make a stop first for lunch though in Asheville NC. You see they have a couple most groovy Vegan/ Vegetarian restaurants. I had googled and researched, yes I know crazy food stalker…

Smoothie Satisfaction

Recently one of my friends asked me if I would post about what I ate… for breakfast, well lunch and maybe dinner and what about snacks! You asked… I will do my best to deliver… with recipes, hints and I hope inspiration! The first thing that came to mind was Smooothie’s. Why Smoothie’s? Because I…

Saturday… what are you doing?

  When I was a little girl Saturday’s usually started with Cherrio’s and cartoons. Unless it was a weekend at my Dad’s and then I got Fruit Loops! Now I shudder at my choice of cereal, but hey… “you’ve come a long way baby” oh wait that was a cigarette commercial! I really couldn’t tell…

Water drink, hydrate splurge, water!

When people ask me “what do you drink” and I say water… really that’s all? Well I do drink tea an occasional cup of coffee… I have also been known to sip a more adult type beverage, but really WATER!! Why? because my body needs it! Our bodies are made up roughly of 70-90% of…
