The amazing vinegar

Vinegar is an amazing ingredient. I love it with my balsamic over my salads, in my Tabasco to spice things up, a dash of it in a family salsa recipe … Vinegar can also be used as a household helper. I have used it to kill weeds, when I was in college I worked at […]


It’s peanut butter time!

Have you seen the 40-year-old Virgin? Remember FRENCH TOAST? (Here’s a clip of that scene. Swearing is involved. So you’ve been warned.) Ha ha! Anyway, years ago Curt and I were watching some diner or cooking show and someone made peanut butter and banana French toast. It sounded amazing. The version they made was super […]


Cookin’ chicken in the kitchen

There was a lot of chicken making and eating in the house so far this week. OK, well not a lot, but more than the norm. One recipe I made for dinner one night was new and super simple and quite delicious. The other recipe was one that I have been making for years. And it […]


Trying out HG’s miracle mashies

Since my recent “FUNemployment” began I have been trying to cook more. It’s not something I enjoy. But really to ensure I eat healthy (and not spend a ton of money) I need to cook at home often. Because I have more time to plan meals, look up healthy recipes online, shop and execute the deliciously […]


Cooking and blending my way to healthy eating

I have started eating better, drinking even more water than I was before and I am even cooking a bit. (I’ve also started back with my […]


Back to my routine

From my posts last week you know that I was on vacation. I had a great, amazing and relaxing time with The Husband in the Caribbean. The water on Turks and Caicos was absolutely a beautiful, gorgeous turquoise. I lounged a lot, slept in a lot, got some sun. I also ingested a lot of […]


Plain Greek yogurt in the mix

One of the challenges for Go Fit Girl’s June Monthly Challenge is to experiment with plain Greek yogurt in various meals. Before this challenge started I had already been experimenting with the Greek yogurt, which is why I thought it would be fun to make it part of the nutrition challenge this month. Here’s what […]


Review Wednesday: Onion goggles

Recently I posted a tip on Twitter that if you put an onion in the freezer for 10 minutes you won’t cry when you cut the onion. (My Go Fit Girl! Twitter tweets also post on Go Fit Girl!’s Facebook page, which is where I get most of my comments.) My cousin mentioned that if […]


Baking squash and adding grains

In a quest to try new things for this month’s Monthly Challenge I grabbed an acorn squash at the grocery recently. I wasn’t sure what to do with it. So I went online to find some recipes. I would have made a soup. But I didn’t have the other right ingredients or enough squash. First […]
