If you are like us, then there is sometimes nothing better for breakfast than a bagel and smoked salmon. Smoked salmon at the store always seems high priced for a small packet and so this becomes a once-in-a-while indulgence. So do we go through life munching down on a plain bagel and some cream […]
Salty Peanut Butter Protein Bites
A couple of years ago I stopped eating gluten, (added) sugar and dairy. Not because I had an allergy or sensitivity but because I needed a total body re-set after a terrible diagnosis of Strep throat which developed into a year of misery.

I’ve found my new favorite thing and it is a Mason Shaker by W&P. We love mason jars for all sorts of things at our house and as a cocktail * coffee * smoothie shaker? Yes please. It all started years ago when I first met my husband who was finishing up his career with […]

It has made mornings easier and the dreaded what’s for dinner conversation a breeze. Three things have made this a success in our […]
