Fonts I Love

June 30, 2013

I am a total font junkie. It has actually become a bit of a problem because navigating my font list requires major patience. I intended to select 25 of my favorites, but after hours  of whittling my top choices down to 28 I threw my hands up and gave in.  The best thing about these fonts is that they are all free, and you can get them by clicking their links below!

The Better Shrimp Bowl With Mango Black Bean Salsa

June 11, 2013

When I first decided to be a pescatarian, I thought I'd be overwhelmed with longing for steak and chicken fingers, but the transition has been surprisingly easy (as long as I never have to drive by In-N-Out). My number one love is shrimp; it takes 5 minutes to cook on the stovetop and it's super versatile. Recently I made a dish of brown rice, sautéed shrimp, and a black bean mango salsa. It's super yummy and perfect for the summer time! Thanks for the idea Kristen.

The Better Healthy Pancakes (No Sugar, No Flour, & Only 2 Ingredients)

June 06, 2013

healthy flourless pancakes
When I was first told it was possible to make flourless, sugarless pancakes with only two ingredients my initial response was "What two ingredients? My imagination and a cup of air?" Since the recipe was suspiciously simple I decided to try it so I could erase any lingering curiosity. BOY OH BOY! I can't express how much I am in love with this recipe. No sugar, no flour, no preservatives, nothing out of a box, and the ingredients are always on hand. One banana and two eggs mixed in a blender is all you need for a batch of pancakes that won't leave you mentally calculating how much time you need to spend on the treadmill. Even if you are not a big banana lover (which I'm not) they are still enjoyable because the flavor is really light, and the texture is like a moist cake.

I am so excited to experiment with this recipe by adding different extracts and fruit to  the batter!
