One of the highlights of our summer has been our pool time with Aidan. We are fortunate enough to have a pool in our neighborhood, and we enrolled him into two sessions of “Mommy and Me” classes. During that process, I realized that the classes are more about equipping the parents to teach the little […]
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, […]
People, this is big news. Check it out because, seriously, Caesar dressing is a pain in the butt to make! This stuff is delicious and very friendly on our restricted diet.
Look for it in the refrigerated section next to the salads. It’s the Garlic Ceasar Dressing; only 55mg per tablespoon!!
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 […]
Well, as you have likely noticed, the world did not end in 2012. I sometimes wonder if the Myans simply got tired of working on their calendar. I mean, the calendar has to end at sometime right? In leu of the new year and also my birthday, launching me another year forward, I have come […]
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 […]
