“Man, we should have left that party hours before we did. My head won’t be right for a week. How are you doing?” “Oh, come on Perry. It wasn’t that late. Besides, when I got home, I slept like a baby.”
Feeling A Bit Salty
Feeling a Bit Salty My husband and I have been gluten-free for several years now. It has really changed our eating habits and nutritional awareness. With a focus still on achieving a healthier diet, we have decided to pay attention to our sodium intake. Shouldn’t be too much of a difficulty, as we don’t eat out often, hardly ever eat anything deep fried, don’t use processed foods very much, or add much salt in food preparation. When we do purchase products for cooking, we try to get the low-sodium option.

Japanese budget food
Ask me what to do in the capital of Japan for 4 days, if all the main sights were meticulously examined 2 years ago, and Tokyo’s chaotic skyscraper buildings are already dazzling to the eyes. I could only find one answer to this question. In Tokyo - to eat! Some will say what a gastro-concerned approach, I should have gone through their Buddhist-Shinto remakes again, absorbing the concrete heritage of centuries. Nonsense, I will answer you, in Tokyo, you need to absorb completely different things!

It's a gloomy, rainy day here in Upsate New York. As though on cue, as soon as September 22 arrived, the temperature plummeted from 80 degrees to a chilly lower 50s, complete with frost warnings. Frost warnings? Granted, we are used to getting snow early in the season, but this year we shifted from t-shirts to wool socks and sweaters overnight. These months always leave me slightly disoriented, feeling like it could be spring and reminding myself that we are, indeed, heading into the cooler months. Winter is coming.

Juicy Roasted Chicken: It's Easier Than You Think
I have raved over this recipe on my blog and Instagram. Make it and you'll see why! Us moms do not always have that much time to prepare dinner, but this is too easy. The hardest part is waiting until dinner to dig in. Spoiler alert: this chicken should rest for 15 minutes or so before cutting. This will help the chicken to stay juicy. What I like about this recipe is it saves so well. You can snack on it for a few days or save it for another recipe! I should probably just keep one of these around lol.

An Introduction to Chinese Breakfast
Of the many adjustments Americans must make when living abroad, one of the biggest is getting used to a very different diet, and the biggest differences in diet often come at breakfast. The first morning meal served to a weary traveler may come as a shock for a few reasons. We're used to having a fairly strict divide between "breakfast foods" and "non-breakfast foods," a distinction which doesn't exist in most cultures outside of the Mediterranean. Add to that the heavy foods served in many breakfast traditions, and that first repast can be a bit of a hurdle.
'Strega': Made with Olive Our Love
Confession: I adore olives. Castelvetrano, Alfonso, Kalamata, Moroccan, and plenty more. You name them, I’ve probably eaten them. Aside from their outstanding health benefits and unparalleled taste, they’ve allowed me to make great memories with my family at the dining table.
