Savory Apple and Onion Stuffed Pork Chops

How’s that for a title? If you remember, about a week ago I wrote that I was going to enter a local recipe contest. While I haven’t heard back from anyone yet (and am sort of doubting I will at all), this recipe is one that I submitted – it wins grand prize in my […]

Recycling is Good

Recycling is good, right? Well, I’m glad you agree, because that’s what all of my WIAW photos are today: recycled! The reason why is because I stayed up at school over the weekend (whereas I usually go home) and therefore didn’t have a camera. The good news is that I ate repeats of the same […]

A Little Recipe and a Little MFM Thought

Well, it’s Monday again. How is it that the weekends go by so quickly? I hope your weekend was a splendid one and your Monday is off to a fine start. 🙂 Remember these little cupcakes I shared the other day? Well, I thought today might be a good day to share the recipe with […]

Up by 5s Workout

Good morning! Happy weekend! I just wanted to stop by and share a fun little workout I made up. It would be a great way to start your weekend off on the right foot, and it certainly is a good way to warm up! I wanted it to have a lot of reps of each […]

I’d Rather Not Live in the Arctic…

Hello hello! Can you believe this weather?? For those of you in the northern half of the states, you know what I mean. For those of you in the lower half….you’re verrrrry lucky. I can’t believe it was just two weeks ago that I was jogging outside in 60* weather. Now the windchills have been […]

Chicken Noodle Soup

Well, it’s cold and flu season, and I was a victim of it this past week. I had a nasty cold that lasted about a week, and ended with me being pretty miserable over the weekend. The good thing was that I didn’t have too much to do, so I could just laze around and […]

WIAW #30

Hello all! I hope your week is going very well so far! Mine has been going pretty fast, which is nice. Well, sort of. The faster it goes, the closer I get to student teaching (in the fall), which makes me so nervous. Not to mention all I have to do beforehand, like applying. It […]

Homemade Mounds Candy

In recent years, I have really been into the smell, texture, and taste of coconut in baked goods. I’ve found that it goes with many things, but my favorite other food to combine it with is chocolate – of course! 😉 So, when I stumbled across these No-Bake Coconut Crack Bars, yet another fantastic recipe […]

WIAW: Texting Without Thumbs

Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway done with the week! I have to say, as crazy and hectic as it feels at times (having to worry about books, room locations, syllabi, etc.), I really do like the first week of classes. Everything is at such a nice, slow pace, and it seems as though I have an […]

Sea Salted Dark Chocolate Bars

When I stumbled across this recipe the other day on Chocolate Covered Katie‘s blog, I was so excited. First, because it’s chocolate (and who doesn’t get excited about chocolate?), but also because it is free from so many allergens and very clean. Allergy- and New Year’s Resolution-friendly! The chocolate could not have been any easier […]
