It’s all about the Olympics this week!
U.S.A. *** U.S.A. *** U.S.A.
In preparation, Michael Phelps has been pounding 3 fried egg sandwiches, 3 chocolate chip pancakes, a 5-egg omelet, 3 slices of French toast, and a bowl of grits ever day – and that’s just breakfast. What have you been doing?

Ever since I started personal cooking, I’ve been forced to get my cooking schedule organized. I prepare weekly meals for my clients, so oftentimes the dishes I make for them are the dishes we’ll eat at home too.
Taking the guesswork out of what to make for the week has been a huge time saver, and now I only have to ponder that Question That Shall Not Be Named once a week instead of five
So, that’s the inspiration behind this series, High Five Fridays! Every Friday, I’ll post 5 recipe ideas to help get your weekly meal plan together — four dinners and one treat. Because you gotta treat yo self…[Read Full Post]Read This Article
