The Great Outdoors

Enjoyed hiking and boating in the Adirondack Mountains this weekend. The mountain air felt like a blanket of peace and the drinking water had a crisp, fresh flavor to it. Had the pleasure of experiencing the sights and sounds of amazing musicians from all over the world while attending a Sunday morning service at Camp…

Italian Restaurant Worth Trying: Sauro’s

Typically shy away from eating Italian food out but went for it after a friend told me about it. Loved my Pear and Gorgonzola salad and the eggplant focaccia sandwich. All very fresh and tasty.  Many entrees were available in 2 portion sizes 👍Opened just a few years ago in Patterson, NY. Very clean, bright,…

Today’s Breakfast

Made these blueberry lemon muffins with whole wheat flour, added cinnamon (as I always do when adding half of the amt of sugar listed in most recipes) and used grated lemon zest for a fresh citrus flavor. All assembled and mixed in 1 bowl. Enjoyed the fragrance throughout the house as they baked. Great with…

Creative Leftovers

Roasted extra veggies for dinner, stored them in a container (which I stored in the refrigerator) and turned it over on a plate for lunch the next day. Beautiful and delicious cold drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

Meat as a Condiment

Trying cooking bits of petit beef fillet with zucchini and fresh basil in your fav tomato sauce for an easy meal packed with flavor. I like to use small amts of lean cuts of meat for flavor and protein. Any veggies such as eggplant, mushrooms and a variety of peppers would also be delicious and…

Tonight’s Dinner

Swap out the ground beef for lean ground turkey and add a few cups of baby spinach and 1/2 cup fresh parsley to your fav meatball recipe, shape into a mini loaf (or two) and oven roast until done to your likeness! Do combine a few of your fav veggies and oven roast them since…

Intuitive Eating

Made this breakfast in 3 stages as I sipped my morning coffee! I like my ham crispy. Chose to start that process first, removed it from the pan and did the same with the vine ripened local tomatoes. Upon removing the tomatoes from the pan, cooked the eggs in it (at which time the flavors…

❤️ Outdoor Concert 💃🏼👣🕺

Last night I had the pleasure of combining music, nature and a strong sense of community by attending the (outdoors) four tops concert. The rain stopped just in time for them to start their magic and we (the audience) all just got up and danced with each other in the park. Check out the (unfiltered)…
