[caption id="attachment_6979" align="alignright" width="284"] Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013[/caption] 2012 is about to come to an end and when we wake up 2013 will have begun.  I can say that I have had a very good 2012.  There were ups and downs to the year, but isn't that the point?  You live for the high and push out of the valley?  When you climb up you have this sense of accomplishment and the thrill of doing something you didn't think you could do. 2012 started with a 3rd place finish at The Bold In The Cold 15k and finished with a c...

Baked apple pie oatmeal was thought of while writing the blog post from yesterday and having to review THE best oatmeal recipe.  I knew I was going to want oatmeal on Wednesday because of the snow that we received on Christmas Day.  Yes, Christmas Day 2012 was a white Christmas in Dallas.  Then Post Christmas Day became Iced Christmas and the drivers in Dallas were all over the place but with the bitter cold outside I knew I wanted the comfort foods.  For me that is not Mac N Cheese or any of the other comfort foods that mos...

Mexican cornmeal pancakes are a great addition to the brunch rotation because it is both savory and sweet.  I came up with this notion when I opened the door to my pantry last week and saw the cornmeal sitting there and thought: I haven't used that in a while. I took down the cornmeal and wanted to come up with something that wasn't just a simple corn muffin or corn bread.  I started looking around and it seemed like everything that would go into a taco was jumping out at me.  I grabbed the avocado, the red onion, the jalape&ntil...

Buffalo tempeh was one of the first things I made when I chose the vegetarian lifestyle.  When I first started the one item I missed the most was buffalo wings.  It was not unusual to see me scarf down dozen after dozen while watching football and it was NFL Playoff football time when the vegetarian lifestyle began.  I missed wings and so I searched for a recipe and found one.  It was delicious and it taught me that I did not miss the chicken but more of the heat and now when I get that hankering it is easy to appease. All t...

Cook Train Eat Race TV is going full steam ahead.  We shot our 3rd webisode this morning after some pool drills.  While swimming all I kept thinking about was eating and I'm sure all you that swim know what I am talking about.  People talk about runner but that is nothing in comparison to the hunger that is created from swimming.  I haven't figured out why people get so hungry from swimming but it happens and this meal will cure that, or if you don't swim it is perfect for a Sunday morning brunch. One of the featured ingredi...
