Spinach Frittata

I may be on vacation, but I still managed to find time to develop a new recipe.  After a long day of travel and some exploration in New Orleans, my aunt and I headed to her house in Lafayette which is about a two hour drive.  When we got to the house, we were hungry…

Chicken Parmesan

Valentine’s Day was this week.  I was too busy to do much of anything, but my gift to myself was to get in five miles of aerobic exercise on Thursday after work.  I’ve been so stressed with work and life that it can feel hard to take the time to do things to take care…
