breakfast sausage

December 27, 2011

Every morning I eat peanut butter, toast or oatmeal, and eggs. I love eggs, any version, for breakfast. They keep you full and are inexpensive. They’re also very versatile and tasty! However, when I’m visiting my family, I can’t have my typical breakfast. My niece is allergic to eggs and peanuts (among other foods). All […]

Check out the new blog here  This time of year is not so good for your waistline. Most people over-indulge during the holidays and pay for it come the new year. {Here are helpful tips for avoiding it!} However, I understand that you would like to enjoy the parties and the food there… If you […]

However, just one serving of this one casserole can be pretty high in sodium and fat. By making your own […]

Sweet potato casserole

I’ve never been a fan of sweet potato casserole. Maybe it’s because my parents and sister don’t eat it… I don’t know. Either way, I think it’s weird (don’t be mad). It’s too sweet, too mushy, and I just don’t understand why it’s even on the table for a meal. In my mind it’s definitely […]
