Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

I love your blog-- all of your photos are so bright and colorful! :o)


Lentils & leeks & carrots = one of my favorite food combos :)

Mrs. D

Great pictures and information. I'm really enjoying your blog!


That salmon looks $20 good!!! I would have fainted at that price too :)

I hear Trader Joe's has great frozen wild salmon...


I have to share my recipe for salmon with you. We eat it whenever we can because we love it so much. I buy a bottle of teriyaki marinade or sesame ginger marinade and I marinate the salmon in it. Then I spray some nonstick spray in an oven pan and place the marinated salmon in it. As it's cooking, if I see the marinade dry up and perhaps start to look like its burning, I might pour a little Rice Wine or Mirin (Japanese cooking sake) in it. Then right before its finished cooking I sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. It's delicious and gives the salmon such a great flavor.


we pay $30 per kg. for farm salmon... which is almost $15 per pound... I must check what wild is... you guys are pretty lucky with prices on all grub. Ours is waaaay out of line north of the 49th...

the other day I took back some spuds because I got good and mad paying $2.00 per potato for decent size baking potatoes.. only to discover that a 5 pound bag of smaller ones was still $4.00... and they were, .... like... 2 to 3 inches in length...arrgghhhhh!!! My four big potatoes weighed in at 4 pounds....sigh.... might just as well have kept them..less peeling...


I love leeks-- I never cooked with them until we ordered them through our CSA last season, though. Yummy looking dinner!
