Egg McMuffin…you have been replaced!

While cruising pinterest, I found a recipe I wanted to try (I know, surprise!) for a breakfast “muffin”(Original article/recipe here).  Basically, it’s a delicious egg-white omelet made into the perfect hand-held breakfast or anytime snack.  For this batch, I tossed some chopped up mushrooms, red pepper, and green onion and two morningstar farms hot & […]

Balancing Boxing with Ballet

I love going to Title to feel fierce.  But it’s also nice to feel graceful and beautiful too.  So for that, I take ballet at the Lawrence Arts Center.  I took Ballet as a child at the Lawrence School of Ballet and loved it.  Sometime in Junior High, I discovered boys.  Well, I’m sure I […]
