The perfect steak.

Food 52 has changed the way I think about cooking with their not recipes. To be honest, unless I know I’m writing something to post on Hangry Woman, I actually don’t use a recipe for most dishes I’m making at home. I cook for myself and Bryan, I know what we like, and most times I’m…

Look, losing weight is never going to be easy.

I’m very open about my intentions and goals in losing weight. I want to be because it means that others will hold me accountable, and it helps me do the right thing. I also have never had real guidance on this journey, so it helps me to write these things out, to better understand my…

Luxury English Muffins

When B and I took our trip to Portland, we had a few really amazing breakfasts at Urban Farmer – a really airy, fresh food restaurant in The Nines hotel downtown.

Dinner & A Movie

I’m totally not a movie-goer like my lovely husband, but if there’s good food available, you can always find a way to get me there! Studio Movie Grill is one of those places that I love catching a movie. Not only are they the originator of in-theatre dining, they always have an option or two that doesn’t…

Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Squash, Bacon Salad.

I’m really starting to learn a lot about cooking with seasonal veggies and not just the same ones I always eat (I’m looking at you, broccoli). I decided to use a veggie that often gets a bad rap: Brussels Sprouts. If you’re not aware, Brussels Sprouts are basically a baby cabbage. It’s a leafy green,…

September’s Monthly Body Transformation

It’s time again – my monthly body transformation video. I still hate doing these because I feel very insecure about them, but I know that at the end, seeing the progress will be helpful. When I dropped 30 pounds in 2012, there was somewhat of a mental block for me – I could never see…
