First stop: Chicken and Gnocchi Dumplings

Who loves a weight loss journey???   The answer is simple.  ONLY the people on the outside looking in, at first.  After a little bit, it becomes more fun for the ones that are actually living the journey.  With that being said, my fiancée (here on out known as my King) and I are going…

Must Try: Hapi Wasabi Peas

One of my first jobs was working as a cashier at a local grocery store.  I know a lot of us have went down this path.  I didn’t look at food then as I do now.  But, what I do remember doing is sifting through this one particular snack mix bin.  I don’t see those…

It’s no secret if you have been reading my blog from the beginning…we love peppers, and we love cooking with them!  I’ve also been exploring different ways to use vegetables at breakfast on the weekends.  Honestly, my breakfasts aren’t very exciting through the week.  So, I always try to make something fun for us on…
