I think I’m a little obsessed with this picture. Right now Oodles of Zoodles is in the hands of my very trusted and capable brand manager/graphic designer.

Four Ways WLS Post-Ops Can Have Cake

I know I don’t put dates on my posts so I will say that as I write, it is December 4, 2015. Also known as “the 14th anniversary of my 25th birthday.” What’s the first thing (food-wise) that comes to mind when you think of your birthday? Yep…cake. Birthday cake is more than just a food.

Summer Shrimp Salad with Watermelon Champagne Vinaigrette

  Ok so let me set the scene of this meal for you. It’s Wednesday – Hump Day – mid-summer. It’s warm, but not offensively so.

Panera Knock-Off: Nik’s “Something Chicken Stew”

 “This looks fancy…” That was my youngest daughter’s reaction when she looked at the contents of the slightly modified bowl I presented her this past weekend. (I’ll tell you why the modification in a sec.) Now to her, “fancy” is a good adjective. With the elder girl, not so much. I was quite pleased how this recipe turned out, mostly …

Apple-Cinnamon Protein Muffins

  You know what’s hard? Living in a house with non-ops who have no qualms about eating stuff that would kill me. Now granted, I love to bake so occasionally I’ll bake them a cake or make some biscuits for breakfast but it’s rare (a fact that is much complained about in my house…but when I say moderation, I mean …
