Not sure if you have a QFC by you, but their meat section has a teriyaki marinated flank steak that is DIVINE! If you recall, I used to hate beef. Like, I didn’t eat burgers. But, during pregnancy and now after I crave beef all the time. The QFC stuff is by far my absolute […]

To Die for Ribs

I do not like ribs. I rarely eat beef. For example, last week was the first time I EVER had a burger from our home grill. Call me crazy, but I’ve always opted for chicken and been perfectly happy with that. Today was different for some reason. Maybe it is my hormonal hunger. Maybe it was the […]

Jamba Lunch

Something about a blend of fruit and ice on these hot days has been exactly what I need. Of course, it helps when the Protein Berry Workout with Soy Protein has 22 grams of protein in a power size, 1/4 of the protein I strive to get everyday. The deal is sealed when I have […]

Vanilla Bean Scones
