Chicken Marengo

And so it has come.  The end of the year has arrived, and I don’t really know how that came to be.  Another year has passed, but this one feels almost like it didn’t happen.  It feels like I was just frozen in place while time passed around me. Sure, I had some good things…

Raspberry Sweet Rolls

I am now home and back to work, but I had a lovely few days home with family for the holidays.  Christmas is a big celebration in my family.  We love giving each other thoughtful gifts and spending time together eating and being merry.  Well, the being merry part is hard for me because I…

Avocado Turkey Salad

I am starting my renewed journey to better health.  I will be uploading a more in-depth post about my struggles, but I wanted to start this journey by sharing a recipe.  I am going to be working hard to come up with healthy recipes that satisfy my desire to eat good food.  I hope you…
