Vancouver Bound & a WINNER!

by Destini on May 30, 2014

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!!

It’s Sunny here, but I feel like it is about to rain…which makes sense because bright and early tomorrow morning the Hubby and I are off to Vancouver for the week. It’s for a work conference, but we will get some time for some good meals and probably a venture to Stanley Park and the Aquarium.  I am also feeling a few runs along the ocean.

Anyone have any good restaurants in Vancouver that they want to recommend? It’s been quite awhile since I have been there for longer than a layover in the airport.

But I know why you’re all really here, you want to know the winner of the one YEAR free of Catelli Gluten-Free Pasta!

Thank you to everyone that entered, but sadly we can only have one winner


Congratulations Lori B! Please email your address to

Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend!

No-Mayo Egg Salad Sandwich

Mini Egg White Frittata

January 27, 2013

Sorry for the lateness in this post! I was having issues with my Lightroom application, but it’s all fixed now! Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. That being said, during the week I usually will have either a breakfast cookie, toast with PB or overnight oats in a jar. I am not a morning person, I wish I was, but I’m not. On the weekends however, I tend to make a very big breakfast. But sometimes breakfast turns into brunch(remember not a morning person) and I need to make a mixture of things and these little mini egg white frittatas are just that! Ingredients: Yields 12 1 cup egg whites( […]

A Trader Joe’s Vacation!!

May 30, 2012

Well, I suppose that really wasn’t the theme of our vacation to Minneapolis, but it sure is my lasting memory. This past weekend my husband and two of my good friends, packed our bags, grabbed our passports and jumped in the car for a 7.5 hour drive to Minneapolis. Our hotel! The Weston in downtown Minneapolis. That bed and shower = AMMMAAZZING. My husbands birthday was last Thursday and all he wanted was Fogo de Chao. Now for my vegan/vegetarian friends….this would be the first place on your list not to go to. Those of you that enjoy meat…will really enjoy it. It’s a Brazilian steakhouse and they do this […]

Vacation and whole lot of food

August 1, 2011

Hey Guys!! How has your long weekend been? I have been on vacation since last Wednesday. So my long weekend has been AWESOME! I had planned to blog, but got so carried away with food awesomeness that I will have to do this in three parts. Wednesday I woke up and made my fiance and myself some packed full oatmeal I make it like Kath does over at Kath Eats, but added half scoop of protein powder, berries and pure maple syrup. Yummy! This is the best when I know I will be heading to the gym later. We finished our breakfast and went to the gym, it was back […]
