#Vibram Five Finger Bikila minimalist #running #shoes. Got a pair through a "daily deals" website...can't recall which site now. Will never run in them after the recent backlash, but I DO like to wear them around the house, to the grocery store, etc. Comfy.

I made it. Parting thoughts: -I awoke craving FRUIT for breakfast. -It's changed the way I look at food. I'm usually a serial pantry grazer. I'd mindlessly finish my kids' meals. I'm now more conscious about what I'm putting in my mouth and why. -I feel great. More alert. More alive. -I'm down 5 pounds from where I started. I'm sure it's mostly water weight. That's fine. Weight loss was not my objective. -I'd recommend this to those who'd like a "fresh start" with eating.

Homemade #Limoncello. Doubled the recipe and had eight bottles to show for it. Swapped out half the sugar for Splenda to cut calories. I have achieved greatness.

How To Make Limoncello

Purchased from Etsy in May '14 and strategically placed in the boys' bath, powder room, and basement bath. Compliance is erratic, but I like the sentiment.

Quinoa 'Fried Rice' - Made on 4.21.18. I actually prefer the consistency of quinoa to rice. A pretty good hack...but next time I need to use PLAIN quinoia instead of veg flavored. Must try again.

Twice Baked Potato Casserole With Bacon via AllRecipes...five stars per user reviews. I concur. A great alternative to baking and refilling individual skins. Fed a dozen by tripling the recipe on Easter 2014.

Mini Apple Cinnamon Pie Pockets. Made these for my book club last night. Well, to be honest, @Lauren Coates made them. She made some apple, some peach, and some blueberry and topped them with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. So yummy and the perfect portions for a ladies' gathering. Will make them again for sure!

Skinny Chicken Pot Pie Soup. Made when Chicago turned Chiberia on 1.6.14. Just what the doc ordered. Will simmer a little longer next time for extra thickness, but overall, a great recipe.

Baked Spaghetti via AllRecipes - Made 1.28.12. A fantastic, quick recipe that feeds a crowd. No need to line the pan with foil...just spray with Pam. Per user reviews, I assembled it with half of the sauce directly on top of the noodles and the remaining half over the ricotta layer. I also used low-fat everything: butter, ricotta, parm & mozz. Could be made without the meat for a vegetarian meal.

Tuscan Sausage Soup with Shell Pasta, Spinach & White Beans - Made 1.21.13. Super quick & easy. Served with focaccia and everyone gulped it down. Next time will use fresh basil instead of dried per the recipe.

Ponytail beanie for running. My bro & sister-in-law gave it to me for Christmas. @lululemon athletica makes some cute ones, too. LOVE!
