You know who doesn’t say TGIF often? That’s right, me. I’m saying it tonight, even though the weekend that lies ahead doesn’t in the least resemble an actual weekend. I have to cook all day tomorrow, and cater a small wedding on Sunday. I’m not complaining. It’s my job! And I love it. The fact is, I get tons of random days off on all sorts of days of the week. This is not a M-F 9-5 gig. Sometimes, I have a whole week off, and get to do things like catch up on paperwork, when I’m not being distracted by the likes of Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest....Read More
21 Day Sugar Detox. Day 4: Based on my scientific research, starting the day with chicken soup makes everything amazing.
While falling asleep last night in a state of sheer exhaustion, I remember muttering “I’m going to have chicken soup for breakfast”. This is normal, right? I did just that, and was happy to remember this morning that I had made such a good plan the night before. I have some genius moments when I’m barely conscious. I feel like I’ve been whining a lot this week, so today, I’d like to share with you the many good things about this lovely stormy Thursday. The rain didn’t start until I was a mere half a block from home when walking the dogs this...Read More
I’m going to make this quick, because I am dying to lie on the couch for a whole hour, starting in 8 minutes. Today: Again, insane. Cook, drive, set up, drive, shop, cook, blog. A wonderful new recipe, if I do say so myself, for grain-free rosemary olive oil crackers. They’re a great snack for the next 18 days, and beyond! Check ’em out. Honestly, today is a blur. What I do know is that I had to bake brownies and chocolate chip cookies for a catering job, and let me tell you: Smelling those things when doing a sugar detox is TORTURE. And we’re not just talking about...Read More
Once you find out how easy it is to make grain-free crackers, you’ll be hooked. These are a variation of my other favorites, my grain-free everything crackers. If you haven’t tried those, you really should, especially if you have fond memories of a good everything bagel. These are a great way to add crunch to your paleo lifestyle. If you’re doing the 21 Day Sugar Detox along with us, they’re a perfect snack to help you get through those… oh you know… moments. Grain-Free Rosemary Olive Oil Crackers Preheat oven to 325° 2 cups almond flour 1 egg, preferably...Read More
Owning a catering company is like this: I’m so busy I can’t figure out a way to physically do everything I need to do, I eat cold bolognese with a spoon for dinner, and curse all those 80’s movies and The Jetsons for promising that we’d have robot assistants by now. Where. Are. They. * crickets * Considering I’m blogging at 10pm instead of strapping on my light blocking eye mask like I should be, it’s safe to say that this week falls into the #1 category. And yes, I had cold bolognese for dinner. Actually that’s not entirely true. I had 2 bites while...Read More
