Runner’s Recipe: Onigiris

It’s the 4th of July this week! Independence Day! Happy Birthday America! We’re going camping to celebrate. But before we go, I thought I’d share a little recipe. And because I’m all about being timely and stuff, I thought this would be a good week to share . . . onigiris! For those of you […]

RSBC 2014 Week 4 Round-Up: February With a Cherry on Top

For some reason I was expecting a little more fanfare with the end of February. You know, 32 degrees or something. But it was not to be. It’s a good thing we took matters into our own hands and added a little bit of summer to spur us on through what I certainly hope are […]

RSBC Week 3: Squash That Chocolate Craving

I feel a little bit like I cheated on this week’s cooking challenge. It’s a silly thing, really, but I bought butternut squash that had already been peeled, seeded and chopped. Does that disqualify me? For some reason, I feel like the “honest” thing to do in the RSBC Challenge is took cook with the […]

RSBC 2014 Week 2 Roundup: Carrot-tops and Gingers

As promised, the round up for Week 2 of the Run Swim Bike Cook Challenge. Although I don’t know if I can really call it a “roundup” if I only have one other competitor to report on. Can I? Well tough. I’m doing it anyway. Here’s the roundup of one: Our good friend Kara Wheeler […]

RSBC Week 2: Don’t You Carrot (and Ginger) All About Your Body?

I’m going to go ahead and be grateful that my annual bout of the flu hit relatively early in the month, and that it appears to be relatively mild. A day or so of achy-ness, a mild fever, some coughing. (Little Miss is slightly worse off that I am, but not so badly off that […]

RSBC 2014 Week 1: Get Yourself an Egg and Beet It!

So, beet greens. And eggs. I thought I could probably do something with that. And I did. Something that looked like this: This is how I did it: First, I cooked some quinoa. Then I took a few beets (3), peeled and chopped them into 1/2 inch dice and a couple (2) sweet potatoes and […]

One Last Christmas Cookie

I know it is Christmas Eve. You are done baking cookies. You are done shopping and wrapping and planning. It’s time to sit back and enjoy, right? But I thought I’d share one last recipe with you, you know, as a Christmas gift. It comes with a fun little story of how my sister and […]

Runner’s Recipe: Edamame Hummus

I read somewhere recently that “heart healthy hummus is taking over the world.” Or something like that. I think that may have been a small exaggeration. Micah, who read the headline too, was quick to point out that the cookie section of the store is probably still bigger than the hummus section of the store. […]

This Week in Marathon Training

The flu is not conducive to training for a marathon. Or any race, for that matter. I am sure there are people who do it. I am also almost sure that those who do are those who actually have a chance of winning the race and the prize money that goes along with it. In […]

RSBC Week 4 Roundup: Drinks with a Dash of Cinnamon

Cinnamon. Such a warm flavor. So comforting. So tasty. I thought it would be nice to end this year’s RSBC with the taste of cinnamon on our tongues to warm us from the inside out. Of course, then I made a cold drink, which, though tasty, isn’t something I’m going to brew up on a […]
