Santa Barbara Cookie Bar

Santa Barbara Cookie Bar

Santa Barbara will always hold a special place in Ashton and my heart. We used to go down there for about 8 weeks a year with our coach and physiotherapist to train when the weather in Eugene was total crap (2 weeks in December and […]

Coconut Protein Granola

Coconut Protein Granola

We’re obsessed with granola. It’s the something crunchy and sweet we feel we need in the morning to add to Greek yogurt, oatmeal and cereal.

Sausage and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

Sausage and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

October and the first part of November have been really busy. Moving, my sister visiting, a food conference in DC, a trip to New York for the NYC Marathon with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Whenever I do this much traveling, I usually eat worse than I do at home since I don’t cook for myself and end up splurging on city must-haves like Shake Shack.

Last winter, Ashton came home with a small clamshell of blueberries because he was “craving them.” You guys…He paid $6.99 for one of those little plastic containers of blueberries, which pretty much holds so few that I could shove them all in my mouth at once!Β When I was basically like, “WTF, Ash?!” he says, “Is that a lot??” You can tell who does the grocery shopping in our house. Point is, enjoy the berries.
