How many licks does it take?

Don’t read while you eat. Do read while you eat. Coffee is bad for you. Coffee wards off Alzheimer’s. Did anyone else notice that some of the health advice you’ve heard completely contradicts the advice others have heard? Recently I came across a really funny one: “When you eat a food—for example, an almond—chew each […]

Sudoku and Sleep

In middle school and sometimes in high school, falling asleep was not easy for me. While my sister could go upstairs, climb into bed, and be asleep in no time, I’d stare at the ceiling for a good thirty minutes to an hour before finally nodding off. I tried everything: Warm milk, trying not to exercise […]

Carrot Cake Sandwich

What are your favorite portable meals? Sandwiches are one example of an easy and portable meal component, because they’re not too messy, and they don’t need to stay cold. But one can only eat so many plain-jane peanut butter sandwiches before it gets old. (Oh forget that; I could eat pb sandwiches every day for the […]

Future Foodies of America

The new FFA. One of the best things about my cousins is their adventurous spirits.  While many other children won’t touch a stalk of broccoli with a ten-foot pole, these cute kids jump at every chance to try something unusual. Something like… Raw Macaroons Or Banana Hammocks The boys enjoyed the banana hammocks even more […]

Pumpkins And Cream

Question of the Day: Hey Katie! i have a question- Do you ever have no appetite after running? I know I need more calories, but I have NO appetite and just can’t bring myself to eat anything when I finish exercising. Is it ok to wait until I’m hungry? Do you encounter this? How do […]

Let’s face it: everything just sounds ten times cuter with “–ini” attached to the end. And Pom-tinis are no exception! Below, celebrating my 21st birthday in style: Recently, Ryan, of the Pom Wonderful Company, emailed me and asked if I’d be interested in receiving a case of Pom Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice. When I told Chocolate-Covered Mom, […]

Do not Pinch Me! I’m wearing my Green!

Many of the best foods are green: Kale, kabocha, spinach, chard, mache, broccoli, asparagus, kiwi, brussels sprouts, zucchini… Question of the Day: What’s your favorite green food?  Mine’s broccoli!! Power Song of the Day: Come on Eileen

Girls Gone Wild

What is something you have done that is really daring or crazy? In my wild high school years, I did all sorts of crazy things. One fun-but-crazy night in particular: I went to a dance club with my friends, and no one was really dancing because it was only 9PM. So she dared me to […]

Pretty Pumpkin Head

I’m dedicating this pumpkin card to my sweet pumpkin-addicted friend, Jenny: Pumpkin-Finding Tip: The Libby’s pumpkin has been a bit hard to find lately, due to a poor pumpkin crop this year. But apparently the poor conditions did not affect organic pumpkin farms. If your store is out of Libby’s or generic canned pumpkin, make sure […]

Spring Break!

Some college kids party it up in Miami for Spring Break. Others take a Caribbean Cruise. (Hello Chocolate-Covered little sister!) But I am the luckiest girl of all, because I get to spend Spring Break this year with the cutest kids ever: my cousins! Hmmm, something’s wrong.  They look too tame in the picture. This […]
