Making my own MOD Pizza

A friend recently asked me if I had tried MOD pizza. I wondered if this was a new style of pizza that I was not hip to. I’m not really into fancy or weird pizza. I just like good ‘ol fashion simple pizza. 2 He soon clarified that MOD Pizza is a new restaurant near

Easy slow cooker shredded chicken

I’m going to admit something. Here goes…..my interest in cooking this summer has been small. No, actually it’s been pretty nonexistent. I don’t know what happened.

A slow interest in cooking (A few favorite slow cooker recipes)

I never thought I’d write a blog about cooking. I never liked cooking. Truly, did not like cooking. I eat because my body requires it. I’m not sure I really like cooking now. But I must have been bitten by the domestic bug during our wedding because I find myself in the kitchen more, thumbing

Visiting Faberge’ at the Detroit Institute of Arts

I was really excited for Justin and my latest adventure – a visit to the Detroit Institute of Arts. We talked about going for months, especially after the August art millage that lets residents from Oakland, Macomb and Wayne Counties into the museum for free. Our interest only increased when the Faberge’: The Rise and Fall

Want to stay fit during the holidays?

Wherever I look I see similar headlines. In line at the grocery store. On Yahoo’s homepage. In my Twitter feed.
