Adventures in Cooking

As my fellow singletons know, cooking is dubious business when you’re cooking for one.  Sure, there’s a hoard of recipes out there to cook for one person, but where do you get 1/4 of an onion?  Last time I checked, they are sold whole.  I know I can cook pre-diced frozen ones and use justContinue reading “Adventures in Cooking”

Dairy Free Macaroni and Cheese is the Worst.

Seriously.  I can’t even.  CAN’T EVEN.  Not to be a basic bitch about things, but I give up.  Sure, I miss Pumpkin Spice Lattes because Starbucks only has soy as their crappy non-dairy alternative.  Boozy brunches just aren’t the same without an egg bennie because carbs don’t count on Sundays, okay?  The gluten thing is mostly fine,Continue reading “Dairy Free Macaroni and Cheese is the Worst.”

Surviving New Year’s – Boozy Treats, College Football, and Cooking

Happy New Year, everyone! This might be the first year I haven’t made any resolutions – I made all the bad behavior changes I cared to make in October.  For 2015, I resolve to give up beer!  Lasagna!  Bubbles and cheese plates!  Oh wait…already did all of that.  I will keep working towards my goalContinue reading “Surviving New Year’s – Boozy Treats, College Football, and Cooking”

Weight Watchers, Food Journals and Weight Issues

Good morning!  First, just have to say thank you for everyone that read my blog yesterday!  I think I had 125 views, and it even found some people that weren’t already my friends.  So cool!  Y’all know I love some statistical data and WordPress has all kinds of charts for me. So, food journals. I’veContinue reading “Weight Watchers, Food Journals and Weight Issues”

Adventures in Quilting

It occurred to me that I didn’t really have any hobbies.  Sure, I love to read and will read anything put in front of me (including fanfic.  That’s my dirty secret.  Surprise!) I love to travel, try new restaurants, try craft beer, local distilleries and I miss Washington wine like crazy.  I wish I couldContinue reading “Adventures in Quilting”

A little before and after…

I didn’t really think 40 pounds meant much, until I compared these pics. Sure, charcoal is loads more flattering than white, but the camera doesn’t tell much of a lie here.  The pic on the left is in LA, March 2014.  The one on the right is in Springfield, MO, December 2014.  Yay.  I wasContinue reading “A little before and after…”

Pizza and Pasta

Eating at home is no problem, and I can generally find my way at restaurants (fyi, steakhouses and Mexican seem to be the easiest.)  When all else fails, like when you’re at Lambert’s in Missouri avoiding those thrown rolls, get a salad.  No dressing.  Because that mess always has soy. Mom made a great discovery,Continue reading “Pizza and Pasta”

It’s not a weight loss blog. Seriously.

Update on 1/30:  I’ve now moved my original post to it’s own page so it’s easy to find. Seriously.  But with great change comes great reward, so I’m sure I will post about those changes too.  This all started in October, when I found out I had to cut gluten, soy and dairy from myContinue reading “It’s not a weight loss blog. Seriously.”
