I posted last night on Facebook that I was making this Warm Winter Lemon Cake (click the words because they are a link; I just don’t know why it doesn’t light up.).  I’ve made this cake before, I’ve just never done a sugar-free cake version.  I know what the finished product is supposed to look like. I used a Pillsbury boxed yellow sugar-free cake and sugar-free Jello lemon pudding.  I followed the directions just like they said and this is what I ended up with.  It’s not bad, it’s just not what is supposed to happen.  The pudding is supposed… View Post

Hello all!  I hope you know what I’ve been doing: working out, working and watching the Olympics.  There is no surprise there.  I thought today I would do a recipe round of chicken recipes because my need for chicken has gone to all new levels.  It’s the one thing I haven’t steered far from during my pregnancy so I do spend a lot of time looking up delicious recipes to try at home. At our home, there tends to be an leaning towards an asian profile in our foods. This would be something we would eat on the regular. Korean… View Post

I haven’t spent enough time in the kitchen, it’s time for me to go back.  Now I have a bit more time on my hands since I’m not constantly in training for something so I thought it would be the perfect time to start experimenting again.  I’ve been wanting bread of some sort and the idea of zuchinni bread came to mind. Everyone seems to love it; I should give it a try. Let’s be honest, zuchinni tastes like nothing.  That’s why healthy eating people put it in their foods as a filler and a way to get some veggies… View Post

We’ve been a little pressed for time and Willie doesn’t really want to clean a lot of pots and pans so I’ve been making some casseroles lately.  This one that is great for lunch because it’s easy to pre-portion out and great for on the go. There are few steps but it’s a pretty good meal. I season the skinless chicken breast and thighs and bake them covered in the oven at 450 degrees for 45-50 minutes.  I use a mixture of both breast and thighs for moisture in the dish.  Chicken breast are really dry and I learned through… View Post

It’s coming on Christmas and there are tons of treats and foods in your face.  It’s impossible to escape.  You know I’m a big fan of moderation and deprivation.  If you deprive yourself of the things you want, you’ll probably end up binging on those foods later.  Enjoy them now with moderation and portion control. There still is a way to stay healthy and indulge over the holidays. I will indulge during the holidays but I’m ok with it because I am keeping active. I try to keep my activities holiday themed too because it’s just so much more fun.… View Post
