Giveaway closed, congrats Krista!

One of the unique things about living in Cincinnati during Lent is the church fish fry and I say this because a friend living in Baltimore said churches there do not host fish frys.

I cannot imagine not hitting up at least one church fish fry during Lent, but if you’re not into going to a volunteer-led effort to get your fish, you can head into Izzy’s for their Lenten Cod Special – The Codfather!

The Codfather is a delicious cod filet, battered with Izzy’s special blend of seasonings, on a kaiser roll with lettuce and tartar sauce. Served with a potato pancake, cole slaw, or a cup of tomato basil soup for only $7.49!

Did you hear that recent study about comfort food fights loneliness?

So many of my food memories involve my mom and her recipes. There are certain tasks (peeling apples and frosting cupcakes) she didn’t enjoy but did for us kids.

I try to eat one apple, one orange and one carrot daily, but sometimes the apples aren’t tasty so I make apple crisp. The sugar negates the healthiness, but at least I’m not eating cookies and I think of my mom :)

6 cups apple — peeled and sliced
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup butter

Place apples in 8×8 pan
Combine flour, oats, sugar and spices.
Cut in butter
cook 12 to 14 minutes on high in microwave or until apples are tender.

Does it get any easier? If your coworkers aren’t drooling over your apple crisp, I don’t know what to tell you.

Review: Harvest Snaps

in Products, Reviews

I love potato chips but don’t buy them unless it is the small snack size bag because I have a tendency to over indulge. Unlike my mom, I don’t find carrots to be natures potato chip, sure, they’re crunchy but the taste isn’t the same. I really wanted something crunchy, but healthy that satisfied my taste buds.
