Anxiety Doesn’t Listen To Reason

I've had anxiety my whole life and it's a bitch. I don't know if it was brought on by anything specific such as being bullied to the point of trying to take my own life as a kid or growing up as the black sheep in a very religious household where I didn't belong, or… Continue reading Anxiety Doesn’t Listen To Reason

This Isn’t Your Mom’s Meatloaf

Meatloaf has a reputation in the food world of being not quite as prestigious as other forms of meat, and I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe the singer Meatloaf ruined it for the food? There's no musical artist (and I'm using that term loosely) called Meatball, and everyone loves spaghetti and meatballs, which are nearly… Continue reading This Isn’t Your Mom’s Meatloaf

The Miracle Of Pre-Cooked Pouches Of Salmon

I've been on quite the salad kick lately, eating it for lunch every day and some dinners, and I'm starting to see some preliminary results in the waistline area. Since I'm thoroughly enjoying the salads and not dreading them, I'm excited to stick with it and hopefully lose a few pounds by the time it's… Continue reading The Miracle Of Pre-Cooked Pouches Of Salmon

Karma

Anyone who knows me well knows that I'm a very open, honest, and unashamed atheist. As a matter of fact, when my husband and I were on our first date, he brought up the fact that he's Catholic. My response was "Oh cool, I'm an atheist!" Like I said, I don't see any reason to… Continue reading Karma
