Have some leftover brown rice? I’ve got the breakfast for you.

It combines protein, fiber, whole grains and most importantly in my book, has wonderful flavor.

I wish I could tell you that I had this breakfast on a sunny trip to Hawaii, complete with a picture of the Taster and I on the beach.

In actuality, I had this breakfast at my Aunt & Uncle’s cabin, up North. :)

But no matter what kind of beach you’re near – it will be delicious.

Hawaiian Breakfast - 2 servings

  • 2 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup leftover brown rice
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 eggs

Heat large pan over medium heat. Add bacon to pan and cook until bacon is brown. Add rice, onion and soy and sesame oil to pan and toss.

Prepare eggs to preference and serve over rice.



Before I get to New York, I want to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day! I know half the world hates it, but like I told the kids at Camp – single or not,  it’s a perfect day to think about what you love about YOURSELF! The Taster and I celebrated last night with an

Sundays are the perfect day for crockpot meals in our house. A lot of people find them really handy during the week, but between work and the commute, we are usually gone 10-11 hours during the day which is a pretty long cooking time for anything. Plus I really like being around for all of

slowing down

While in the middle of my 4th sinus infection since November, (never had one prior to November) I decided that it’s time for a few life changes. When the Doctor was asking about my lifestyle, it seems like I’m doing everything right. I exercise, although I could fit in more cardio;  I eat well, although
