Well, from a workout standpoint, I’ve just completed the most frustrating week of the entire FIT Challenge.  I didn’t make it to the gym once this week.  My schedule the past two weeks has been hectic, as I’ve had soccer games after school on many of the nights, and has precluded me from getting...

This savory muffin studded with zucchini and cheddar cheese pairs as wonderfully with dinner as it does breakfast. And consider taking advantage of all that extra zucchini piling up in the garden by baking a double batch. The moisture from the zucchini means these muffins freeze well.

I have been studying for this test that I have this week. Sometimes it seems like all I do is study. Yea I know it is part of going to school (BGSU Firelands). Sometimes I just need a little break.   I applied to get in to a master's program and I was accepted! Never thought about getting my...

When I told my mother — a fiend for candied ginger — that I was testing a batch of these muffins, she said she wished she could fly right over and dig in. She's not the only one.

Busy, busy, busy. This weekend is no different. As I sit here writing this, I'm at a birthday party for...

Mmmm. Nothing says good eats like soy residue. Except that in Chinese cooking, it really can. And you very likely have enjoyed that soy residue, many times and in many ways.

This past week has been AWESOME. I have incorporated swimming laps into my workout routine. I must say the first time I did laps with my YMCA personal trainer Joyce Niedzwiecki, I had a hard time catching my breath. I think I was trying to race and wasn’t concentrating on my stroke. From this first...
