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 […]

RSBC 2014!!

February is here! You know what that means … Run! Swim! Bike! Cook! Christy and I are excited to get started and hope you are too. Quick re-cap: Ironman meets Ironchef during the month of February. That’s 4 cooking challenges and 140.6 miles. More details on Christy’s blog! (This week’s cooking challenge: beet greens with […]

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 […]

RSBC Week 4: Strawberry Horchata

First, if you’re holding your breath waiting for my first post on tomorrow, you’re going to have to wait a little longer. I won’t be posting until next Wednesday. Just so you know. Second, if you are participating in the RSBC, please e-mail me your cinnamon drink posts by Tuesday at midnight so I […]

RSBC Week 3: Sage and Garlic Mashed Potatoes + Week 4 Challenge

Christy said we could do any meal, any dish with our sage-two-ways challenge. I chose to do no meal in particular. Instead of preparing a breakfast or lunch or dinner or dessert or snack, I just whipped together a pot of mashed potatoes in the middle of the morning for no specific time and no […]

RSBC 2013 Week 2 Roundup: Lentils, Lentils, Lentils

Let’s all get on the same page really quickly: Lentils are awesome. Easy, tasty, versatile. But maybe you are not like me and you don’t have an aversion to beef and you are not always looking for the perfect veggie burger. What can the humble lentil offer you? So much, my friend, so much. Let’s […]
