B-Vitamins for Energy are NO JOKE!

I don't like April Fools' Day.  I hate realizing I've been duped and believed something that is just a joke lie.  (Like last year when my friend shared a sonogram on her FB page, to which I responded with some long mushy congratulatory rambling of excitement, only to find out it was a joke.  Seriously though, who jokes about THAT?!?!)  Well this weekend, I discovered something that is definitely NO JOKE.  You've pro ...

Broccoli Babies + {Asian Lime Salmon}

As promised, today I am sharing with you the recipe for the delicious Asian Lime Salmon I made this week (the same day that Babycakes' Pancakes were born).  If you can't tell, someone enjoyed their meal ------------>  Moi!  The other thing you can probably tell?????  I don't really like rice.  ESPECIALLY white rice.  I left about 90% of it on the plate.  But, dear hubby, who is half Korean, loves Loves LOVES whi ...

Photo Food Log # 2 + {Pinterest}

First of all, I joined the weight loss blogger bandwagon this week - and FINALLY ordered some PB2!!  I found a combo pack from Amazon that came with both the regular pb flavor and the chocolate pb flavor.   What is PB2?  It's basically peanut butter powder.  They have extracted out the oils from the peanuts, and subsequently most of the fat too.  It has some awesome stats:  2Tbsp = 45 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and 5g of protein.  So now that they have arrived, I am in exper ...

Weigh-In #5 + {Babycakes' Pancakes}

I made a fabulous Asian Lime Salmon for dinner last night which you can see here ------>  I was planning on detailing that recipe on the blog today, but something even more amazing happened in the midst of my creation.   Babycakes wanted my attention.   She had missed me all afternoon.  She was chomping at the bit for Momma time.  So dinner prep became Momma/Babycakes time.  I had her help me stir the marinade, and she loved being such a helper.  When it was ...

Wins & Losses + {Home, the Perfect Nest}

Janetha called it lazy, but I (& the other 433+ readers of her blog) called her recent Wins & Losses blog post super fun and creative!  She's also the clever gal that came up with the "Get to know the blogger" survey in this past post.  Anywho, in the spirit of her blog post, I will start out with a recent win. ...

A Tabletop Garden + {Cucumber Melon Juice}

So when I saw the name of this juice highlighted on the Jointhereboot website, the first thing that came to mind was Bath & Bodyworks' hand lotion.  This both excited me and worried me at the same time.  I can honestly say I've never once felt the desire to lick my hands after putting on this lotion, so I wasn't so sure a juice made out of cucumber and melon would taste very good!  I was skeptical, but thought it was worth a try.  The ...

I hate following recipes + {Overnight Oats}

Honestly, I never thought I liked cooking.  It was such a chore.  It was always so messy.  It was so tedious.  I wasn't very good at it.  I was always missing ingredients.  But what I realized is: I just hate following a recipe.  I like being creative.  I like trying new things.  I like problem-solving.  I like discovering how flavors blend.  I like creating meals based on ingredients I have available (so shopping for good staples is key!).  I like feeling accomplish ...
