When I woke up this morning, it was snowing.
And that seems like it'll be the trend for the next four months or so. The one thing that I crave on these long, blustery snow days? A big, crisp bowl of greens. I might have to drive to the grocery store instead of the farmers market this time of year, but its so worth it to come home with a bunch of fresh kale.
Between salads, smoothies, and kale chips, it never lasts long.
December is the hardest month for me- and probably you- to avoid sugar. Balance it out with a healthy, green dish like this one. Fresh ginger helps calm a troubled tummy, while sesame seeds and tahini provide great levels of copper and magnesium. Plus, kale is super rich in antioxidant vitamins K, A, and C and has been shown to both reduce both cholesterol levels and fight cancer. So, lets eat! more...
When I was a little girl, my Mom was all about doing simple, kid-friendly DIY projects like this. She introduced me to the 2-ingredient ornament project, and we've been doing it for years.
The recipe is pretty standard, and you probably made these way back in elementary school, yourself. But now you're an adult, and you get to totally wow a kid of your own (or just one you like) by being the coolest and knowing how to make your own fancy Christmas Ornaments.
I love this craft because its quick to throw together, easily rolled out and cut, and it makes the house smell amazing! You have enough other things to do over the holidays- keep the extra projects fun & simple. more...
Since you and I didn't get to spend the holiday together, I figured you might enjoy seeing what some of ours entailed.We ate first with our roommates and their families at our place, then headed to second dinner at my Dad's house.
It was my almost step-sisters birthday, and we celebrated with warm cider & rum.
I made a tripe-layered fudgy chocolate cake with peanut butter ganache frosting and pecans.
It was a hit! And it was finished by the end of the evening.
It was a great holiday, and I'm stuck between the freakish amount of mashed potatoes I ate and the trivia game being my favorite parts. I hope yours was great too! What was the best dish on the table at your place? more...
