Roasted Garlic Beets with Sweet Onion

May 27, 2013 - No Comments

I am incredibly lazy.  Well, at least from a cooking perspective.  I do not like spending much time in the kitchen.  [The only exception to that rule is when I'm preparing desserts, in which case my continual tasting of the dough keeps me going.]  So when it comes to cooking vegetables– it better take 5 [...]

These lightly sweet greens pack quite a phytonutrient kick!

Bigos with a Cajun Twist

May 27, 2013 - No Comments

I was craving some good old-fashioned home-cooked Polish food. I prefer to flavor my food with herbs and spices, while my Cajun husband loves to soak everything in Tabasco and red pepper seasoning. Since my poor tastebuds can’t handle the heat, we reached a compromise. [kitchenbug-your-recipe-appears-here-9883]

Turnip roots are an excellent replacement for starchy potatoes — if you roast them and caramelize their sugars!

Roasted Turnips

May 27, 2013 - No Comments

Turnip roots are an excellent substitute for potatoes — but only if you roast them!   Roasted turnip roots have a little bit of a sweet and tart aftertaste, which I adore. The roasting process is essential for caramelizing the turnip sugars and mellowing out the turnip’s natural bitterness. In fact, turnips are 50% sugar! [...]

*Perfect rest day food. These are by NO MEANS a low calorie food. I ate an extraordinary amount of dough while preparing these delicacies. The nutrition facts provided are for a single cookie. [kitchenbug-your-recipe-appears-here-9879]  

Weight Loss, Not Nearly as Pleasant as Weight Gain

December 12, 2012 - No Comments

In the last few weeks, quite a number of people have asked me how I lost weight after I tipped the scales at 180lbs in high school [180lbs at 5’5” = BMI of 30 = obese. For photographic evidence click here.].  I suspect the holiday season and its customary gluttony has sparked an increased concern [...]

Cheesecake* with Strawberries

July 10, 2012 - No Comments

*high-protein, low-fat, and absolutely scrumptious I’ve tried a number of healthy dessert recipes in my day, and they always manage to taste, well, healthy. Not quite like the real deal, rather an acquired taste that approximates the taste of the original. NOT THIS RECIPE. This cheesecake tastes creamy and decadent. The strawberry sauce on top [...]

Garlic Coriander Carrots

July 3, 2012 - No Comments

I ADORE this recipe, and I’m not a carrot fan, so that’s a testament to this recipe’s deliciousness.  It is virtually impossible to get me to consume the root vegetable known as a carrot.  It always seemed to me that it was hidden in the ground for a reason.  People who can munch on raw [...]

RBBC [November 5th, 2010]

November 5, 2010 - One Comment

Warning: the combination of burpees and high knees may be hazardous to your mental health.  I will probably not be combining them into the same workout routine in the near future. This workout was painful and would require an incredible amount of willpower to complete solo.  Luckily I had my class members to motivate me [...]

RBBC [October 29th, 2010]

October 29, 2010 - No Comments

Another Friday, another exercise class. So I’ve decided to detail what exercises I do in my Friday class at Shaw, which has been given the unimaginative name “Rock Bodies Boot Camp,” aka RBBC. The purpose is two-fold, so people can recreate the magic at home and, more importantly, so I can keep track of the [...]
