    Hi, there! I just got back from a wonderful restaurant on the South Shore called Arthur & Pat’s, which is located right on the ocean in Marshfield. I met Chrissy, Matt, and their two boys there for brunch. Arthur & Pat’s is really neat inside—ok, for a first-timer, it’s a bit overwhelming with the menu plastered […]

    Good morning! Happy FRIDAY! I started my morning with an especially delicious breakfast. Breakfast Last night, a reader asked me if coconut flour could be substituted for almond flour in my Paleo Morning Glory Muffins. I wasn’t 100% sure since I’ve only made them once, so I whipped up a batch with coconut flour. The […]


    Today, I CrossFit

    August 31, 2012


    Check out what I did last night—I registered for a CrossFit class!! Woohoo!!! I’m feeling a lot better and the past couple of days have been blood-free (I know, gross… sorry), so I’m going to return to my beloved sport this evening. Today’s WOD is only 8 minutes, so I figured it was a good […]

    Hello, hello! So, our next big home project is redoing our driveway and walkway because they’re both in need of some serious TLC. Mal and I actually spent a couple of hours weeding our driveway earlier this summer, but it doesn’t look like it at all now, does it? Holy weeds! As Mal said, “You […]


    Paleo Morning Glory Muffins

    August 30, 2012


    When I worked at the Harvard School of Public Health, there was a little bakery in the Longwood Galleria that served delicious “Morning Glory” muffins, which were packed full of raisins, nuts, and other good stuff. They were HUGE, so I only treated myself to one every once in awhile, but it was a muffin […]

    Is anyone else watching the Bachelor Pad right now? I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that I’m so into it, but there’s nothing else to watch on TV right now. Well, ok, that’s a totally lie. There are new episodes of Breaking Bad (OMG, this season!), but nothing else really. [image source] Anyway, the Bachelor […]


    Car Inspection #FAIL

    August 29, 2012


    Holy goodness, where did today go!?! I can’t believe how quickly it flew by! (If you’re wondering, I actually do say weird things like “holy goodness” in real life. I’m like an 80-year-old grandma. It’s cool.) Breakfast I’m really loving my two-ingredient pancake, but, yesterday, it didn’t hold me over until lunchtime like it usually […]
