The Best of 2013

Happy New Year!  I hope your year is off to a fantastic start!  I always like to spend the last couple days of the year reflecting on the past year and reviewing all the amazing things that happened throughout the year.  It really sets the tone for the upcoming year.  And this year was no […]

Spicy Bean Soup

Today was a crock pot soup kind of day.  If you don’t already know what that means, it means that I’m too lazy to actually cook a meal.  But we’re going to call this being efficient, ok?  And it actually turned out well and made plenty for leftovers!  That means that, in addition to dinner […]

Mr. Real Food’s Cucumber Salad

I’m not a huge fan of cucumber salad.  I like it okay, just not as much or as frequently as Mr. Real Food.  But since we had so many cucumbers from our co-op basket and my brother’s garden, we had to do something with them.  So Mr. Real Food made his own cucumber salad and […]
