This has been a really crazy six months. The past month has gone by so fast that I don’t know how I kept my head above water. Now that things have calmed down I’m back to working on my goals. There were a few things I wanted to start doing at the beginning of year but life happened and I was unable to make it happen.
Well it’s the start of a new month, new beginnings and time for me to step outside of my comfort zone some more. I have a few goals that I want to accomplish this month. One way to hold myself accountable is to write them down.
- Create videos. I have the equipment so it’s time to start using it. I’ll go live on my Facebook page to talk about my life in the kitchen with Cerebral Palsy and food allergies.
- Bring back Kitchen Tip Thursdays.
- Tastefully Simple unboxing. You asked about how I use the products I sell so I’ll share some cooking tips.
- Local restaurant reviews. I live really close to the beach and all these great restaurants. Time to share some local finds.
Here’s to a month of great expectations. What are your goals for the month?
As you may have noticed a lot of people are talking about green smoothies and adding them to their daily regimen. How about you? Have you tried any green smoothie recipes lately?
We’ve tried different recipes for green smoothies and we love them. This one here has a cup of frozen mixed fruit (peaches, mangoes, strawberries), one banana, one cup of apple juice and a handful of spinach.
Over the next few weeks we will be sharing with you various green smoothie recipes and the benefits of drinking them. Are you ready to try a green smoothie? Do you have a combination you would like us to try? Leave us a comment and let us know.

Nana’s Apple Cake
Did you have guests pop over for a visit? Need a treat for your child’s classroom? Or maybe you just want a quick dessert to go with tonight’s dinner. Nana’s Apple Cake Mix is just the thing for you. Made with just chopped apples and eggs, this sweet cinnamon-spiced cake in ready in just under an hour.
If you don’t have any apples on hand, applesauce, pears, peaches, canned pumpkin, pineapples and mandarin oranges work too. You can add walnuts to give it a crunch. Nana’s Apple Cake is a great choice for brunch or even just a snack. It’s a kosher product and makes about 9 servings.
You can check out my website for more recipes. Thanks for stopping by today and sure to grab a piece of Nana’s Apple Cake before you leave.
Have you ever wondered what the color tabs on loaves of bread mean? Some are yellow, red or even blue. Years ago I remember asking my Home Economics teacher in Junior High School what those tabs really meant. That one question turned into a homework assignment for me. I didn’t mind because it was about food and research so I was all for it. Now fast forward about 15 plus years (Yeah I know I just dated myself…lol), I wondered if the same information that I found out years ago was still valid. So I began my research again to see what I could find out.
Those colored tabs really do mean something. Each colored tab represents a different day of the week; the day the bread was baked. The date that is stamped on the tab is the date the bread needs to be sold by. Sometimes they won’t always be tabs but the twists with the dates stamped on the bag itself, the colors still remain the same. The colors are listed below. So next time you are in the bread aisle or at your local bakery take a look at the colored tab or twist to see how fresh your bread is.
Monday – Blue
Tuesday – Green
Thursday – Red
Friday – White
Saturday – Yellow
Note: This is a universal adopted procedure, however some companies may change it up a bit. But for the most part all companies still with this standard procedure.
Hey, everyone! You all asked and I said I would deliver. I will be sharing more about myself and my life behind the blog. The following is just an introduction to who I am and what I love about life.
- I have Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy and I walk with a limp. ( I need to give my cane a name)
- My food allergies have increased over the years. (How is a food blogger allergic to eggs and raw apples?)
- I come from a blended family. I have a bonus mom and a bonus dad.
- I fell in love with cooking as a child, while recovering from surgeries.
- I’m a book nerd. I love to read. Romance novels are my weakness.
- I blog about romance novels at Romance Novels In Color.
- I’m addicted to seafood and green smoothies.
- I spoil my nephew Pumpkin like crazy and he’s getting a sister soon!! (I’m excited about another baby being in the house.)
- I am very involved in my church.

This is me, this is my life and I love it. I’ll be sure to share more very soon.
