Apple Pie Bars

Its official, fall is here!  Which, if you live in apple country like me, it means bring on the apples!  Lots of apples.   So many apples, I can’t keep up.  With a fridge full of apples the other day (and after making batch after batch […]




Yogurt Cucumber Raita

Yogurt Cucumber Raita

This Cucumber Raita is the perfect accompaniment for any Indian dish.  In our house, it is a staple whenever we make curry.  To me, curry and raita go hand-in-hand–like peanut butter and jelly or peas and carrots! You just can’t have one without the other.  I’ve tried a couple […]




Red Curry Noodle Soup

The Storm

The Storm

When I lived in California, I got stuck in a brutal storm one Sunday afternoon mid-way through my long run.  I’ve experienced a lot of great runs in my life, but this run in particular changed who I am as a person to this day.  One of the […]
