Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup
When the weather starts to turn cold, or when it’s already cold and you’d like something to warm up the body, soup is an awesome option. And one of my favorites is split pea soup. I’m not the biggest fan of pork, so I make my split pea soup without. There are many delicious versions
My 100th blog! I feel like this should be a philosophical blog about my journey to this point in the blogging world, however, today I give you a new (and exciting) recipe. In a way it is kind of fitting to have this as my 100th blog. The blog started off as a way to
Ginger is a root/flowering plant that is indigenous to China. It is now widely produced and is used in tea, as a kitchen spice, as nausea relief, and for athletic health including anti inflammatory and muscle soreness relief. Growing up, ginger wasn’t a big part of my diet as we are Italian/English, and most ginger
Wow,  I had no idea it’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a blog. The past few weeks have indeed been crazy with traveling to the Pittsburgh marathon, Challenge Knoxville, the CPSDA sport dieticians conference in Mobile, AL and coming up, Rev3 Rush in Richmond.

So I totally missed the boat today and forgot it was Cinco de Mayo. Brett and I love Mexican food, but it slipped my mind. Instead I made a grilled chicken, asparagus and sweet pea pasta. The kicker was, we used quinoa pasta. We aren’t gluten free, but I thought why not. For future knowledge,
PowerBar needs to be in quotes, since I work for “the” PowerBar. I absolutely love PowerBars, whether it’s our chews, wafers, protein bars or the traditional bars. I’ve told this story many times, but I’ll repeat it again. I started eating PowerBars in the 80’s, when they first came out. I believed it was the
All week Brett has been under the weather. He even stayed home from school and just laid on the couch, coughing, sneezing, etc. I did my best to stay healthy-washing my hands, cleaning, taking Vit. C, taking my probiotics, trying to get lots of sleep, etc. Unfortunately it didn’t work, and here I am with
For the past few months, I’ve been meaning to make a go at making my own falafel. I have a favorite middle eastern restaurant, and a restaurant/salad shop that makes a darn good falafel salad. Amsterdam Falafel is located in both downtown DC and Annapolis. It’s kind of one of those places that if you’re
I seem to be on an amaranth kick lately, and I wanted to create a few more recipes using it. Before moving on to the next ancient grain that is! Right now the cupboard and fridge are stocked with new and exciting (or maybe it’s ancient and exciting) things to try, and recipes to create.
Lately, I’ve been on a kick to try all of the “ancient” grains that are becoming so popular. And rightly so I might add.
