I Wanna Rock Workout Playlist

Rock

Anyone who knows me knows that I love a cheesy pop song. (See exhibit A, exhibit B and exhibit C.) So I guess it wasn't a big surprise when one of the students in my bootcamp class requested more rock—hair bands in particular. Ask and you shall receive! My latest mix blends old and new, from Aerosmith to Vampire Weekend, and has convinced me that rock is (nearly) as good as my usual dance club jams. What's your favorite music ...continue reading

What’s Not to Love? Workout Playlist

Love

Happy Valentine's week! Any big plans for the holiday? It should be pretty much business as usual around these parts, except for maybe busting out in a little of this action:  {Source} Thanks to my friend Kim and a Time magazine app she passed along, I now know that if I was on track with my average Facebook friend, I'd be married in 8 months and 9 days. Ha! Rather than dwelling on being behind the curve, I'm counting my blessings ...continue reading

“Better Than Paula Deen” Doughnut Burgers

Edit-no-text

Paula Deen's had a rough year. I don't  mean to beat her while she's down, especially because she does seem like an entertaining, humorous lady, but this recipe is leaps and bounds better than one of her most-discussed recipes! Have you heard of "The Lady's Brunch Burger"? She introduced the word to the fried egg-topped bacon burger served between two Krispy Kreme doughnuts (whoa!) in 2008 and shocked the country with the ...continue reading

Slow-Cooker Italian Vegetable Soup

DSC_0007

Welp, Punxsutawny Phil has spoken and it looks like this bitterly chilly winter will be six weeks longer (if you believe the folklore). A reasonable anecdote for that cold news: comfort food! My Slow-Cooker Italian Vegetable soup is soul-satisfying without being belt-busting. Rather than pasta or brown rice, this recipe swaps in cauliflower "rice," making each bowl gluten-free, vegan and packed with nothing but nutritious vegetables. ...continue reading
