I have a good friend from OH who is always sending me stuff. In the two years I’ve been an active member she’s sent me Christmas goodies and when I met her in person she came loaded down with stuff for me.

Irish Coffee Protein Shake

St. Paddy’s Day is still a ways away, but I am in the mood to be Irish for a minute. Indulge me. This protein shake reminds me of the Bailey’s Irish Creme ice cream I used to eat when I was a kid. Interestingly enough, I have only had real Irish coffee (made by Irish people no less) once in …

Meatless Fridays: Mediterranean Tuna

So I’m not doing the meat thing on Fridays. Which means I gotta get protein without meat (scary). This idea came from Whole Foods.

This is some seriously sexy protein

I’m delving into a different kind of protein shake. One for the “grown and sexy” set. Ladies who take martinis in the morning and their lovers in the afternoon and all that jazz… So why the pic of Eartha Kitt? Well…if she was a post-RNY patient she is EXACTLY the kind of person who would drink this sophisticated shake. (That …

Apple Brown Nikki

So I wasn’t going to post this recipe. Because I thought it would be kinda cruddy to post a WLS friendly dessert two days after Thanksgiving. But here’s the deal. This got a command encore.
