I feel very proud of myself for figuring this one out. BUT not proud enough to remember that I had, HA! I was creating a photobook for 2012 (I know it’s late, don’t judge me) and I stumbled onto the picture on Derrick’s phone. Then I remembered how shockingly good this was for low sodium, […]
One of my absolute favorite things is something that not everyone knows about – Dukkah. It’s a Middle Eastern spice mix that caught my attention on SmittenKitchen.com where she made chicken skewers with this lovely spice mix, served with a honey balsamic sauce. Talk about GOOD. It is a little “different” and definitely out of […]
Hello dear readers and I’m sorry for not writing more. Goodness, it has been a long time, and I feel that every other post is my apologizing. Well, this is the last apology; so savor it. I have been gallivanting around the country on a couple of vacations, revamping the house, watching my little man […]

Potatoes are in my genes. I mean, I’m an Idaho girl and therefore have been raised around lots of potatoes, which we can eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In fact, during Thanksgiving a 10lb sack of Idaho Potatoes was only $0.98, so who wouldn’t eat lots of them?? For sure, one of my favorites […]
Have I mentioned that I’m addicted to pinterest? Well, my name is Heather, and I’m a pin-aholic, which doesn’t make any since to my husband. BUT I get some really great ideas from there, including this one. Some people love ranch; and there are certainly plenty of recipes that call for a “ranch packet”. The […]
Who knew there are variation in taste between different vinegars? I mean, it’s vinegar right? Aren’t they all going to taste overwhelmingly strong, and about the same when mixing them into sauces and salad dressing? Apparently not. This tid-bit came as quite a surprise to me when we went to the Cheesecake Factory, and my […]
I came to know this recipe from a dear friend, while we were roommates in college. She had a real knack for amazing meals that were I quick and easy, which I admired (and still do)! Of course, this was before low sodium (BLS) days so slight modification was necessary. Just as all working moms […]
Last night, after the gym, my husband promptly drove me to the grocery store. “What are we doing here?” I had to ask, as I was baking in the 100 degree car in my gym clothes. “Do we have avocados?” “Yes, why…??” “Would you please make your guacamole? I’ve been craving it!” Now, who could […]
OK, so I have to admit, I sort of cheated on this one. I saw a “dressing” in a non-salad dressing recipe and I snagged it up. I never even tried the rest of the recipe, but the dressing is AMAZING. I prefer this over all the other salt-loaded dressings that I used to love. […]

Those of us who shop for low sodium products know the pitfalls that “convenience” products can bring. Among the long list of items, anything from frozen veggies to seasoning packets, are muffin mixes. Most likely due to the baking powder/soda and probably even including the condemned ingredient that shall-remain-unnamed in their mixes; heaven forbid that […]
