This morning, attempting to be organized I decided to make a salad in bulk and use it as lunches for the next few days. So, in order for it to truly be a full healthy meal it needs to have protein, healthy carbs and some good solid veg. I decided on chickpeas for the protein, […]

Yes indeed more blueberries! I went away for the weekend and came back to a box of blueberries which I couldn’t let go to waste so I decided to make muffins. I am usually not a fan of cakey muffins but these are so heavy on the blueberries you don’t feel so bad about it. […]

I never used to like blueberries. I know, I know, they are so good for you. But I always had them in desserts or too late in the season and thought they were too sweet. Well, the other night I was over at a friends house for a girls-night bbq on the patio and there […]

No, I haven’t stopped cooking because of my Jamie Oliver disappointment. I have just been busy at work and tired out from the heat. This is another one-bowl, dinner-salad, low cooking summer recipe. It is actually just a salad thrown together by what looked good and some fresh herbs form my window but my boyfriend […]
