A No Sugar {Chocolate Torte} for my love

It all started with my recent recipe success - making the absolute best (& healthiest) Key Lime Pie, which happens to be Dear Hubby's favorite dessert.  If I could create an almost identical taste and experience to an all-time favorite, but with 70% less sugar using banana and squash puree & greek yogurt, then I could do anything! ...

Feelin' the love + {Italian Artichoke Biscuit Quiches}

Best Breakfast: {Egg & Sweet Potato Biscuit Quiches}

Well, I did some math... and Dear Hubby and I have shared approximately 3,000 breakfasts together.  And this weekend (this recipe) he said was the best breakfast I've ever 8 years of marriage.  Those are high compliments, especially since this meal was a bit of a breakfast experiment.

Recipe: Carbeeple = Carrot Beet Apple Juice!

Happy Monday folks!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend & St. Patty's day as much as I did.  Evidently I was in creative mode all weekend because I created a brand new delicious Citrus Kale Salad...

Week 1 Weigh-in: Moment of Truth

So...did my efforts pay off???  Before we get to this week's weigh-in/reveal, I must say I do feel like I worked harder than usual this week.  Which is a good thing.  I felt a lot more intentional.  I thought about what I ate: whether it was helping or hurting my goals.  I thought about moving and being more active, and put those thoughts into action (though I can still do more!). ...
