Spicy cooking

Most weeks I try to explore at least one “new” recipe. I was looking at Hungry Girl’s website and found spicy Thai-style no-cook stir-fry. It sounded yummy so I decided to give it a try. I added the ingredients I didn’t already have to my grocery list. I decided to add a few other ingredients […]


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 […]


Experimenting in the kitchen

As I have mentioned in the past since my FUNemployment began I have a long to do list of things, including getting healthy. And one of the many ways I am working on getting back to healthy (and hopefully lose a few pounds in the process) is by experimenting with recipes and cooking. I will […]


Trying out HG’s miracle mashies

I have to say it was really good and filing. Though this wouldn’t be the normal thing I would make for dinner on a […]

Lisa Lillien, aka Hungry Girl, came to the El Cerrito Barnes & Noble to promote her new recipe book, 200 under 200 (200 Recipes Under 200 Calories). Alicia came along with me this evening. And I ran into Jennifer and Ricki, too. They had lots of yummy snacks, Pop Chips, samples of Fiber One, Vita […]


Hungry Girl Weekly Weigh-In

I get Hungry Girl’s daily newsletters. I don’t always read them. I get overwhelmed by all my e-mail sometimes. But today I read HG’s Weekly Weigh-In. And there were tips for making some healthier versions of foods for our upcoming food fest we call Thanksgiving. I think I am going to try the recipe for […]

Today I was reading about Little Light Lies, food that says it is light, but it ain’t. She also wrote about healthier options at Fast Food restaurants. She also linked up […]
