Last week while traveling to New Orleans, I had a delicious salad from Stanley on Saint
Ann Street (Jackson Square). It was a mixed green salad with pesto croutons and roasted
pine nuts and the croutons were so good I knew I had to try to make them at home.
I'm so happy that spring is officially here, but our weather has been crazy. Sixty degrees
one day and twenty degrees the next. Is it winter, is it spring? Who knows!
One thing I do know is that when it's cold and dreary outside, there's nothing like a warm
and comforting meal for dinner. Chicken Pot Pie Pasta is comfort food at it's best, and
the fact that it is a one-pot meal makes it even better!
I'm not technically on a "diet", but I have been paying close attention to what I eat
and how much I eat since the beginning of the year. I gained a few extra pounds over
the past 24 months, and while I'm not over weight, I have not felt comfortable with the
way my clothes have been fitting. This past January I was finally in the right mind set
to get serious and lose the extra weight.
I am all about moderation, so I have not been depriving myself of anything, I'm a
food blogger for goodness sake, but I have been focused on eating less processed food
and making healthy, clean choices when it comes to food.
Last summer I had the best pancakes of my life in a cozy farm kitchen located in Vermont.
Julie, from Green Wind Farm made them for us while we were on the Stonyfield Farm Tour
and I haven't stopped thinking about them since!
Spring is on the way and it's time to get those toes in flip flop and sandal shape!
My homemade lemon peppermint sugar scrub is super easy to make and only requires
a few ingredients to help remove dead skin and soften your heels and feet. I use sugar
scrubs a couple times a week and I'm always amazed at how great my skin feels
