Lettuce-Less Salad Recipe

Did you make a resolution this year to eat better in some way?  I didn’t, but I think I should have because my January (not to mention December) was a nutritional DEEEBAAACLE.   Too many drinks, too many sweets, too many chips, cheese, chicken wings.  Yikes, I know why I don’t keep a food log.

But alas, […]

Simple Homemade Granola

I love, love, love granola.   I have loved it since before it was cool to love granola.   I love it for breakfast, as a snack, on yogurt, on ice cream, wherever.   But what I haven’t loved over the years, is how some have tainted it’s precious reputation with a ton of ingredients that just don’t […]
