Creme Brulee

Last night was special... dinner with dear friends, and creme brulee for dessert.  If you've never had this delicious dessert before, you should try it soon.  It's easy to make, and a treat for the taste buds.  A simple, creamy custard with a crispy sugar crust.  Topped with fresh fruit, this dessert ranks up there as one of my favorites.


Couch to 5K

So in between work, cooking, church responsibilities, and house remodeling projects, I have started something that I haven’t done in a long, long time....running.  The last time I ran this much was in college with Jill and Meg, and that was a while ago.  Now that it’s almost 10 years later, very hard to believe, I figured it’s time I get my 30-year-old self back into shape.  Through one of the blogs that I read, I learned about an app on your phone called “Couch to 5K” – it is an exercise program that takes you from no exercise to running a 5K in about 2 months time.  (For those of you who don’t know, and I wasn’t sure myself, a 5K is equivalent to 3 miles.) The program is based on a combination of walking and running, and as you build up your endurance, there is less walking and more running.  So far it is working very well for me… I definitely feel better when I’m keeping up with the program verses when I take a break for a couple of days.  If you want to learn more, click here:
