I always enjoy unexpected flavor combinations, for example my Chocolate Ginger Truffles with Cacao & Smoked Sea Salt. Another thing I LOVE is protein…..lots of it. I like protein with my protein, my Egg Battered Grilled Cheese is a great example of that. Protein makes us feel great and keeps our energy levels high. We have […]

Lately I have had a fierce addiction to blaring country music in my car. Have never been much a fan of it until now. Perhaps it was the Egg Farm tour I just got back from. Maybe my ties to Telluride are making themselves more pronounced. That high altitude haven is a mix of  bling meets hippie, […]

I had 2 pounds of raw chicken breast staring at me from my chilly fridge.  With an attempt to satisfy everyone around here, I came up with this light, lean, baked, and dare I say “Chicken Finger” kind of thing.

Ever get home from the store and notice that you bought the wrong yogurt?  You know the “normal” runny, gloppy kind that separates into all kinds of weird textures.  When I discovered rich, thick, creamy Greek yogurt there was no turning back.  Sometimes containers will say on the label “thick, creamy, Greek style.” The only […]
