Happy Arbor Day

Mulberry Picking via Sprittibee

Happy Arbor Day! I am a huge tree hugger. Started way back when I was a tiny tot, being taken on hikes through the Washington redwood forests with my grandparents… there’s magic in those dark mysterious forests where the trees reach the sky. I had a tree I used to literally hug in my back […]

A Healthier Version of Egg Salad

Sprittibee's Egg Salad

I have always loved egg salad. I used to go in and request it at Jason’s Deli even though it wasn’t on the menu and they would sometimes make it for me, depending on the location. Eggs and I have had a rocky relationship in the past, and I realized after learning more about eating […]

We’z crazy, y’all. In my house, there’s never a dull moment. It’s a good thing you all can keep yourselves entertained when the silence is too much around here on my blog. I tend to take on more than I can handle. I’m learning to say no more, I promise. I’ve been reading “Say Goodbye […]

I wrote this post a long time back and decided to update it and re-post it. This information never gets old. Sometimes you need to go deeper than just a “healthy recipe” and discuss the ingredients themselves. A little information about what we are eating can help us do the right thing in the kitchen. […]

I seem to be stuck on my weight loss. Can’t get past that 7 pound mark. The scale is stuck on one number – and fluctuating a pound up, then a pound down – in a relentless circle. It doesn’t help that I have dined at La Madeleine’s… but oh, that mushroom cream sauce. Hey. […]
