Rum Raisin Ice Cream

I have not bought ice cream since November 2011. True statement.  I got an ice cream maker and have not looked back. As if by magic, when I got my ice cream maker blogger Kavey started her “Bloggers Scream for Ice Cream” challenge series.  I have participated on most months, not always getting my posts […]

Friday Food: Easy One Pot Chicken

Another Friday Food post, in keeping with my “who says cooking is hard” theme.  This week it is “one pot chicken”.  This is super easy to make, done first on the stove and then into the oven to bake.  I served ours with asparagus and rice. Super easy. Super yummy. Initially I thought about doing […]

November in Numbers

If October was about changes and decisions, a bit of a re-set and re-think, my November was about deliberate actions, patience, and just plain old enjoying things without pushing them.  I have gently eased back into training, although in some ways this may not seem gentle when you look at the numbers!  It is the […]
