Recipe: Red Lobster Biscuits

  These biscuits are only the most bestest thing about Red Lobster ever.  Back when I lived in Canada, it was a big deal to jump the border (legally, of course, and…ah…in a car) and head to those restaurants you could only find in the U.S.  This was one of them.  (The other was Jack […]

Recipe: Nanaimo Bars

Since I’m Canadian, and these are awesome, I’m spreading the wealth (of knowledge).  These bars are not nearly as famous outside of Canada as I thought.  Nanaimo is pronounced “Nah-nai-moe” in case you were wondering and these no-bake dessert bars are suuuuuuper rich, but incredibly delicious.  This recipe comes straight from the city of Nanaimo, […]

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Church

So, I volunteer at my church on Tuesdays to help with cooking.  It’s funny that I’d volunteer for this because I don’t particularly like cooking.  I do, however, love to talk and that’s what we do while we’re cooking so it works out beautifully.  Actually, that’s not true.  I like cooking, just not on a schedule.  Only […]

Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life

I could not get this thought out of my head. It’s more than just advocating the right to life for unborn babies, the elderly or disabled here on earth, but also for the souls of every man, woman, and child to live forever, without pain, suffering or guilt, in Heaven through the saving grace of […]

The New Regime

Or regimen.  I can’t remember which applies better here.  So at lunch today, I went to 24-Hour Fitness for a little abuse, I mean, Kickboxing.  This was pretty interesting because it was humbling in the extreme.  I kickboxed back in Canada about, oh, ten years ago and I can safely say: How far have I […]

Fat Secret

I know, it’s a horrid name isn’t it?  *shudder* I paid for the Weight Watchers online access, which was roughly $50/month.  Pretty pricey, considering by the end I was just using the website to log my food and not attending the meetings except to get weighed in. So, what to do when you have no […]

The Herb Garden

So I’m in the middle of planting an herb garden.  We have two great planters and we didn’t do a full-attempt last year so I decided it was time.  Last time we planted, we did tomatoes, more tomatoes, peas, and the freaking hottest habanero peppers that ever dug roots.  Oh and zucchini that totally took […]

Recipe: Lactose-Free Cheesecake

As someone who would marry cheesecake if she could but married her lactose intolerant husband instead, this cheesecake is a winner.  If you think it can’t possibly compare to “real” cheesecake, I challenge you to make it. The way I got around my oh-so picky husband was not telling him what I used.  I just said […]
