Now that I have discovered the amazingness of GARLIC OIL, I have attempted to make some of my favorite dishes again, incorporating the garlic oil. I still made this pumpkin chili without onion (I know, crazy) but used the garlic oil to add some much needed garlic flavor. Hey, it does the trick for an Italian… Continue reading Fresh Pumpkin Turkey Chili
Nicole recommended that I try using our bounty of butternut squash to make some sauce. At first I thoght this sounded strange, but then I went searching for recipes and I realized it was actually quite a brilliant idea! Rather than making a sauce for pasta I decided to make a sauce to serve over some… Continue reading Butternut Squash Sauce Served Over Spice-Rubbed Grilled Chicken
Thanks for all of the wonderful comments you left on my last blog post. I knew I would get some people who disagreed with me about the inclusion of fruits in the diet, and the fact that Weight Watchers now considers fruits to be free foods (some of you only sort of agreed with me).

Yesterday I had a small yogurt,… Continue reading Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup and a Sweet Wine Reduction

I loved reading all of your comments on my blog yesterday. Apparently you all agreed with me about how annoying some people can be at the gym. If there is one thing you learn about me fairly soon after meeting me, it’s that I speak my mind all the time, and I’m very opinionated.
