Happy almost 2014! I hope you all are enjoying wonderful, relaxing celebrations with family and friends. A couple days after my holiday party, I drove to my hometown to see my parents and sisters and to bake, eat, read, relax, join Mom for some workouts, watch movies (go see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty!) and unwrap all sorts of running-related gifts. My family knows me well! I've also had fun clicking back through old blog posts ...continue reading

Peanut Butter Apple Pie Cookies

Happy National Bake Cookies Day! It's very fitting, considering that verb has been one of the main causes for my blogging hiatus lately. I've been in party prep mode for the last week or two, planning a menu, shopping, cooking/baking and cleaning before I host some close friends for an appetizers, desserts and cocktails holiday celebration! There are plenty of cookies and other sweets on the menu, ranging from guilt-free to ...continue reading

Excuse the dorky photo—I just can't contain my goofy smile. I'm back! Not just after a week away from the blog, but back to running. You read that right!

So today, I rounded up 6 dishes to add to a summer fruit and vegetable recipe bucket list. I must try these before the ingredients go out of season! Join me? Just genius. Serve your favorite berries in an ice cream cone for an edible ...continue reading

Somehow, we went from spring on Tuesday (top) back to winter on Friday (bottom)—such crazy weather across the Midwest this week! I learned my lesson battling through a windy 6-miler on Wednesday, so I rocked yesterday's long run on the treadmill. It certainly was not the most exciting run I've ever done, but thanks to some new tunes and a couple good podcasts, I made it through 12 miles. My longest non-race run yet! This morning, I'm ...continue reading

Heart-Healthy Pancakes

Happy (almost) Mother’s Day! The day, like no other, screams breakfast in bed. I’m a little too far from my Mom to whip up any of these for her this weekend, but maybe I can offer an I.O.U. and refer back to this post to make her a treat when I see her for my sister’s wedding in one month. Sidenote: So excited for Amy and Joe—yay! As you know, I’m not the most inspired cook in the kitchen, but enjoy learning from ...continue reading
