Grilled Vegetable and Farro Salad

Summer time is great for grilling up some vegetables! I was lucky enough to hit up the local farmers market and pick up some garden fresh veggies. With the hubs out of town, I hijacked the grill and made this creation. I think that grilling vegetables adds a little umph to their flavor, and I just love sesame ginger dressing on…

LED Light Running Belt Review + Discount  

I have to admit, I wasn’t really in the market for a new running belt, I have a flip belt that I had been using quite successfully.  When Level Up Runs reached out regarding their LED Light Running Belt, I was intrigued by the idea of a belt with lights. The first thing I did when the belt came, was to see if my phone fit….

Baytown Bud Heat Wave Race Recap

I signed up for this race on a whim, when it became clear that I had no conflicts on the 4th of July. I had remembered seeing information about the Baytown Bud race before, but with Heat Wave in the title, that always put me off investigating it any further. Once I started investigating the race, I knew it was meant to…

I always crave Egg Foo Young when I am sick. Weird, I know… but I always know I am on the mend when I have the taste for it. After making the scrambled “eggs” from Ashley over at Blissful Basil, I began to wonder if eggless Egg Foo Young was possible. I’m happy to say that it is!!!       Print Eggless…

Cowabunga 5k Virtual Race Recap

I signed up to run the Cowabunga 5k Virtual Race in June.  I ran it as part of the social run I do with Gooses Acre Running Club.  With the heat, I had no goals for time… I just wanted to have a fun run, I thought running in a group would make it seem more “racey”. The Cowabunga 5k  Virtual Run,…

Quick Black Beans and Rice

I’m not sure this can even be considered a recipe, given it is super easy and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. I love this meal for weeknights when cooking seems like too much trouble.  It is also great in the summer-time as it does not require use of oven or stovetop. Uncle Ben’s ready rice makes preparation a…

Lots of Pun To Be Had: Punderdome – A Card Game For Pun Lovers

I have a confession… I love puns. Another confession… I love board games, especially the ones that make you think. When I found that there was a game that combined both loves, I knew I had to try it… enter, Punderdome. Punderdome comes from the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn’s beloved live pun competition. The game is pretty simple to play, and…
