Science Experiments: Kefir, Cold Brew and Sourdough

My counter is beginning to look like a science classroom. I’ve been making my kefir, and the grains are growing. When I received the little cauliflower-like blossoms, I had a scant tablespoon if not less. Now, they have grown to about a tablespoon. And,…

Sunday Night Check-In: Experimenting with Kefir

I got my kefir grains in the mail on Friday. I was so excited that I went in right away and poured a cup of milk over them per the directions. Apparently, while they are being shipped, they go dormant, so you have to…

A Primer in Outdoor Cooking: ShoppersChoice.com

My friend Alisa got a new job a  few months ago, and I have been very curious to check out what she’s doing. For one thing, she’s super excited about the place, and it’s not all that often that people really love where they…

Galveston: Avenue O Bed and Breakfast

I ended up passing on the mountains this weekend to get some girlfriend time from my Texas girlfriends. The weekend before I was feeling lonely, and I knew that going camping by myself takes an adventurous spirit and me feeling on my game. I…

Day 2: Sugar Detox – Sweet Dreams

Being Gentle With Myself as a New Years Goal

     I’m not a huge fan of New Year’s resolutions. I am a fan of reevaluating my goals and setting intentions for the new year. Ironically, I find often that after I set my intentions at the beginning of the year, I look…

Project Love Baton Rouge: Day 29 – Independent Supermarkets

When I lived in Memphis there was one choice in supermarkets – Kroger. To be fair, there were many different sizes and flavors of Kroger, but the mega-chain came in and bought all of the other grocery stores after I’d been there about 5 years….

The Ice Cream Fix

I came home today, and all I could think about was ice cream. I haven’t been eating sugar, so it was kind of weird that I was fixated on it, but I was really obsessing. I had been obsessing about it last night, but…
