Running: Week 1

Running:  Week 1

Yesterday marked my first week of running. Guess what? I think I’m actually beginning to enjoy it. Who knew that little ol’ me would enjoy exercise. Guess what arrived at my door yesterday? My new CamelBak. I. Love. It. No more holding water bottles or iPods while trying to run, and no more loose...

Running: My New Journey

I’m training for my first ever 5k. I’m a little nervous, but mostly excited. Exercise has taken a back seat since I started school back in 2009, so I thought signing up to run a 5k would force me to exercise. So far, it’s working. My goal is to be able to run a...

Nutella & Almond Bars

As promised, I made y’all nutella and almond bars. They happen to be healthy, but you’d never know it. They taste like you’re biting into a chocolate candy bar, only better because this bar is made with my current obsession… Nutella. I. Love. It! I happened to find it in a twofer pack at...

One Pot Cheesy Salsa & Chicken Pasta

I’m participating in the Run for your Lives Zombie 5k in October and started training for it on Sunday. I thought I was going to die on Sunday after my 2 1/2 mile walk/run. This body isn’t familiar with the word exercise, and it totally took a beating on Sunday. My face was red,...

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Fudgesicles

Double #IceCreamWeek Trouble!

  Oh no, we’re nearing the end of #icecreamweek! I’m going to be sad to see it go, but there’s always next year. Because I love ya, and because I’m sad that this very sweet, very chilly week is nearing its end, I’m going to share two chilly treats with you. That’s right, two!...

Chocolate Banana Cake Batter Shakes

Yay for day 4 of #icecreamweek! Did you get a glimpse of that title? It says cake batter! Everybody loves cake batter. I know I do. I love to lick it off the whisk, the wooden spoon, the spatula, straight out of the bowl. Have you ever stuck your face directly in the bowl...

Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet

Welcome to day 3 of #icecreamweek! Can we all agree that this is the best week ever? All ice cream, all week. What’s not to love? I’ve been so busy churning up ice cream that I’ve be slacking in the housework department just a tad. There may be piles of laundry waiting to be...
