Bread Therapy (Or: How to Solve All of Your Problems with Flour)

August 19, 2015

I used to be a little afraid of bread. Not afraid of eating it, to be sure, but of making it. Bread making is an art, an elevated form of baking that for for some is closer to a religion. One of my recent favorite books was, “In Search of the Perfect Loaf,” by Samuel […]

A Texas Frame of Mind

July 7, 2015

Back in Texas. It feels like I can finally take in a full breath. Until I woke up the first morning back in my own boat of a bed, I didn’t even realize I’d been holding my breath for the past five years. I loved California – what’s not to love? – but it wasn’t […]

What I ate after my run – Pina Colada Ice Cream with Pistachios and Chocolate (Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Vegan)

June 11, 2015

Back when I was a rookie prosecutor I attended my first-ever conference (doesn’t a conference full of law enforcement types sound like a barrel of fun?) on Padre Island – a beach resort in Texas. Being young, my experience with alcohol was limited to warm beer from a keg and girly tongue-numbingly sweet wine coolers […]

What I ate after my run – Chinese Chicken and Cashew Salad

June 10, 2015

Tuesday is Massage Day – ahhhhhhhhh! Can you hear the angels singing? My weekly massage has been one of the most important pieces to keeping me injury free all these years of running. I fell and ruptured three discs 10 years ago, and have spent a ton of money on epidurals, physical therapy, rollers, Pilates, […]

What I ate after my run – Plum Bacon Salad with Balsamic Pecan Pesto

June 6, 2015

Perfunctory, get-‘er-done 10 miler because we have a full day of food adventures, a movie and packing up to hightail it back to Texas in a few weeks (Woop!). I had a gorgeous plum staring at me for the last few days begging to be used before it turned. But plums have to be eaten […]

What I ate after my run – Chocolate Shake (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan)

June 5, 2015

TGIF, people! Woop! And it’s time for a chocolate shake! While I’m not averse to a traditional shake (Seriously, who can resist vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and whipped cream? Come on.), after a run, I like to get a little more bang for my nutritional buck. Since it’s Friday, both my runs are EASY. I […]

What I ate after my run – Honey Roasted Carrots with Ham

June 4, 2015

With two teenage sons, there is a lot of carnivorous cooking in my house. My sons expect some sort of animal at every meal. This means that I usually have some sort of leftover meat that I need to deal with the next day. Sandwiches: done. Burritos: done. Chicken salad: done. Feed it to the […]

So, yesterday I told you that my friend, M, at Read Eat Write Run asked me to come up with a Gluten Free Cheesecake recipe using goat cheese. Challenge accepted! I love to spend my runs trying to figure out a recipe – it gives my gerbil brain something to focus on. (Maybe that’s why […]
