Mango Guacamole

Okay. So, I’ll admit that making the declaration that I would post three times a week was, perhaps, a little ambitious. But I’m proud of myself for making it as long as I did. (What, like…three weeks?)

Lemon Lavender Pie

We celebrated Independence Day this past weekend and with that came lots of parties, BBQs, and outdoor concerts. It was a lot of fun!

Tuna Nicoise Salad

The Tour de France is in full swing, here on Day 3. I was racing on Day 1 so I missed seeing all the chaos that was at finish of that stage. Of course, I heard all about it via my number one new source–Facebook. I have a friend who is working for BreakThrough Media […]

Healthy Snacks for Road Trips

I love road trips! Except the packing. And making lists so that I don’t forget anything. But the actual road trip, that is what I love! Wide open spaces, farm land, good tunes on the radio (I prefer classic rock for road trips), and if possible, a good humored travel companion. Of course, the best […]

Gluten Free Chai Spiced Waffles with Raspberry Sauce

This weekend is so jammed packed with activities, which is why I missed posting yesterday. In fact, the next three weekends are full of traveling, racing, and family and friends visiting from out of town.  These waffles look like they will be a hassle to make, but they actually come together super fast! So fast, […]

Banana Bread Recovery Smoothie

Saturday’s training ride was pretty epic. A good group of us headed out under cloudy, but dry, skies—that was, until about 10 miles into the ride when it began to spit on us. By mile 15, it was a full on shower with temperatures dropping. It was messy. It was sloppy. When the rain did […]

Pork and Mango Stir-Fry

JB and I have this running joke–he keeps threatening to buy a box of mangos from a guy who sells them from the back of his truck. If this were Hawaii, or some other tropical locale, that would seem normal and acceptable. But this is Chicago. Where is this guy getting his boxes and boxes […]

Turkey Burgers with Spicy Apricot Glaze

Did you know today is Flag Day? I only knew because Facebook told me, and that is where I get 90 percent my news these days. I don’t know if that’s sad or just a sign of the times. And not knowing too much about Flag Day, I turned to another credible news source, Wikipedia, which […]

Prep Work

I must have balance. Work/life balance, yes. That one I am pretty good at–setting boundaries and finding time either at the beginning of the day, or after work, to do my workouts. The training/life balance thing is trickier for me. I remember when I was training for 70.3s and doing all that laundry! It seems […]

Jerk Chicken with
Black Bean Sweet Potato Hash

  Spring has finally arrived in Chicago. While “she” might think of it as being fashionably late, I think she was down right rude! I mean, come on! Two months late? Spring, you have some explaining to do. And then, like the party girl that she is, she has up and left us, and we […]
