I have a confession. I've been a vegetarian for about 7 years, and I've never prepared tofu. (There was that one time when Brett made me dinner, and I watched him cook tofu. Does that count?) I know, I'm a poor excuse for a vegetarian … [Continue reading]

Protein Powder Reviews

4-types-of-protein-powders

I don't use a lot of protein powder, but I do use it often. Almost every morning begins with a smoothie, including half a scoop of protein powder. That extra little kick of protein keeps me full in the morning. When I'm really in the mood for a … [Continue reading]

A couple of weeks ago, "Sampling Shockoe" was in full swing down in Shockoe bottom, which meant that a group of restaurants had a set 3-course menu for $30. The girls and I decided to try 2113 since none of us had been there before, and we'd heard a … [Continue reading]

Exposing the Mess

lindsay-and-me

I'm not the world's most organized person. I'm not. (Mom, if you're reading this, stop rolling your eyes at the understatement.) It's not that I'm messy (ok, maybe I'm a little of that) it's just that I seemed to have too much stuff and not enough … [Continue reading]
