One of the things that being a Weight Loss Coach teaches you is to really pay attention to the foods you are putting into your body for fuel. It has been a very interesting experience for me to go through personally, as well as being a coach to others. 

I think that most of us can appreciate a good burger every now and then. Today I was in the mood for just that, so I created a recipe for Mini Sliders with Mushroom Relish. Of course, you're probably all thinking that there'd be no bun included with a burger while trying to eat healthy, right? WRONG!! 

I was at The Nittany Lion Inn for a baby shower today and they always have a huge basket of complementary apples in the lobby, so I grabbed one on my way out the door. I love baked apples, but I was getting a little bored with the normal cinnamon or apple pie type of flavoring I usually go with. So, tonight I decided to get a little spicy and OH MY GOODNESS, I think I've created a slice of Chai spiced heaven!!! 

Tonight's dessert was another experiemental kitchen concoction....and it turned out delicious! I had decided earlier in the day that I needed to get rid of some of the pears that had been in our fruit bin for far too long so they were gonna be on the menu. I didn't know what I was going to do with them. Baked pears or pear crisp were the most obvious option, but I wanted something a little more exciting. I call this one Vanilla Mint Pears.
