Shrimp + Haddock Fish Tacos


I had this great idea a few months ago to start a weekly meal tradition. I thought it would be fun to celebrate Taco Tuesday each week, with a different version each week. Unfortunately, this is probably the only version of tacos we actually made. And I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a Tuesday. It was a fun […]

Hot and Sour Ramen Soup


For the past few months, I’ve been eating a lot of soup. This is one of those phases that I expect to pass, but in the meantime bring me all the Faux-Pho and Vegetable Soup I can get my hands on. Or in this case, all the Hot and Sour Ramen Soup that I can […]

Greens & Grains Shrimp Salad


It’s been quite some time since I’ve felt inspired to get in the kitchen. I eat so much food right now with bulking season in full swing that food is not often appealing. It’s something I just have to eat to build muscle. The thought of creating a new recipe has been hard to fathom. […]

Salmon Noodle Salad


For the past month, I seem to have misplaced my cooking mojo. Each week I say it’s time to start meal planning again. And each week I get to Sunday night without a plan in place. My motivation to get organized and plan ahead seems to be still on vacation. Last night was the first night I […]

After a few extra days of rest & relaxation between jobs, I’m back to work! It was nice to have extra time to play in the mountains, but I’m ready to get started in my new job. It’s always both an exciting and very busy time getting up to speed. Disclaimer: Slideshow collection sponsored by […]

Double Crunch Veggie Sushi Roll


I actually created this recipe last summer for the Snack Out Loud Reinvent Your Recipe showdown. The recipe was originally shared on their blog, but I intended to post the recipe here after the contest was over. Six months later, I am finally remembering to share this with you here! It might be a bit delayed, […]

Curry Shrimp Recipe


Kirk and I have been on vacation for 12 days. 12 glorious days of family, snow, relaxation, snowboarding, knitting, and snowshoeing. Heavy on the relaxation. I honestly can’t remember a more relaxing break from work. I think my decision to re-learn to knit helped with the relaxation. I’m addicted. Only one day of in-the-gym workouts throughout our […]
