I’m sure a lot of you are going to see the word eggplant and immediately stop reading this post…but wait! Before you go, hear me out. Eggplant isn’t my favorite vegetable either, it’s spongy and bland. But when you prepare it the proper way – like with loads of cheese, bread crumbs and marinara sauce – it can be rather tasty!
Poor little eggplant, just needs a little T.L.C…
Don’t we all?!

As promised, I have a delicious new recipe to share with y’all today.
I don’t know about you, but when I see turnips at the store, I usually turnip my nose to them (see what I did there?). Turnips are one of those vegetables that looks sort of strange sitting there in their raw, awkward state. Not to mention, they can be intimidating. Don’t you agree?
I’ve only ever cooked them once before and the resulting bitter veggie was enough for me to never want to cook them again.

Bryan is gone for a few weeks so I’ve been trying to get my quinoa and kale consumption in – he’s not a huge fan of either, especially kale.
What the kale Bryan?

Hi y’all! Man, it’s been a whirlwind of a week, but I’m finally getting back into a routine after being gone for 9 days.
Oh how I long to be back in Costa Rica…
Nestled between mountains and surrounded by forests, wetlands, the Pacific Ocean, scarlet macaws, sloths and toucans…

Hola! We are back from Costa Rica and I hope y’all haven’t forgotten about me because I haven’t forgotten about you! In fact, I thought about you a lot during my time in Central America – when I was eating incredible food and when I was hiking through the cloud forest, I thought about how much I couldn’t wait to share my experiences with y’all! So, on that note, it’s good to be back. 🙂 I can’t wait to share some of our pictures – which I promise to soon!
But first, I want to share with you some wonderful news…
Drum roll please…

I’m a huge fan of corn (and no, I don’t mean the band Korn). I think it stems from early childhood when my grandpa would bring over fresh corn straight from his garden and it tasted like nothing else on the planet. Oh man my grandpa could grow and cook a mean corn on the cob.
“The trick is to only boil it for 2 minutes tops,” he would always say. “People cook it too long and it gets mushy.”
This trick passed on down the line to my mother and now me…

I had to go to the dentist this past Thursday. 😦 No, it wasn’t just a regular cleaning/check-up – that happened a few weeks ago. This appointment was to “fix” a tooth. My dentist wasn’t quite sure what was going on with it. He said it was either partially fractured or I had a nasty cavity. In this situation neither outcome is ideal, but if I had pick, I was hoping for the cavity.
