Noom Friendly Instant Pot Split Lentil Soup

Another green soup just in time for St. Paddy’s Day. I am not actually a big St. Paddy’s Day fan. It just happens that my favorite soups are green.

Marshmallow Fondant Is A Thing

We recently celebrated one of my kid’s birthdays and I decided to try to up my baking game. I discovered that you can easily make fondant out of marshmallows which is pretty mind blowing for me.

Nocking Point’s Origins Pinot Noir

Well, I have had a chance to try out that collab red wine that Jason Momoa put out with Nocking Point, Dirtbag, and it is fantastic.

Cookpad – I’ve donated 4 trees

In my post Noom life, I have discovered that a lot of recipes that I used to like to make result in food that just isn’t that good for me. That shouldn’t be a shocker since junkie food is tasty food but it is frustrating. So I’ve started looking for new healthy recipes and updatingContinue reading “Cookpad – I’ve donated 4 trees”
