I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!

  1. I have oatmeal alost every morning, but its usually made in the microwave at work. I don’t use the little packets, though, I promise! 🙂 I have steel oats in my cupboard and you have me thinking that I really could let it cook while I’m getting ready in the morning and I could take the hot bowl with me! Hmmm….I think you’ve given me a good idea. It sounds so good! Thanks, Jen! Debra

    • 🙂 that would work just cook in a larger pot on low, so they don’t erupt over your pot (that is not a fun mess to clean). Go for it! I’m doing some as we speak! 🙂
