Day Four: More Meat! (Beef Cookbook Giveaway)

Twelve Days of Giveaways

As you are certainly aware, I do CrossFit.  Duh.  As you may or may not know, eating paleo generally goes hand in hand with CrossFit.  A lot of people make jokes about “drinking the kool-aid” about getting sucked into CrossFit and then starting to eat paleo.  Honestly, I have been astounded by the results I […]

My Go-To Appetizer

crab dip

On Monday night, I went to a potluck dinner, to which I brought my go-to dish for potlucks and dinner parties – my Aunt Tile’s Crab Dip.  It is hands down my favorite appetizer ever! I looked back and saw that I had given you the recipe wayyyy back in November 2011, so go check […]

Tower Hill Egg Souffle


Last weekend, I went on my church’s high school youth group retreat.  No, I am not back in high school, I am a youth group leader (I know, right? I set an example for high schoolers??)  We had a great weekend full of hiking, bananagrams, chubby bunny, oreo cookie face race, movies, and The Office. […]

Bacon. That is all.

I.  Love.  Bacon.  Bacon bacon bacon!!  It is so good.  Now that I am lifting a lot at CrossFit, I have been craving MEAT!  All the time. With this love of meat, however, comes the desire to really know where my meat comes from and make sure I am eating the RIGHT meat.  I am […]

Tofu Lettuce Wraps


I had some GOOD lettuce wraps recently. Even more exciting: I made them! Yay. My cooking has been a bit lazy and/or lacking recently and I have gravitated towards easy meals, but these were easy, delicious and healthy! I used the Indian Masala flavored Twin Oaks More than Tofu that I had gotten awhile back. […]

Lemony Pasta Salad


{Have you “Liked” The Rogue Runner on Facebook yet? How about following on Twitter? Check out both!} Last weekend, I made a batch of the best pasta salad I have had recently. (Although, I did have some great caprese pasta salad on the 4th of July at the barbecue I went to. Must get that recipe!) I’ve been […]

The Most Amazing Salad. Ever.


Y’all, I have to share this salad recipe with you. It is so good. We had an impromptu dinner party on Sunday night, and one attendee brought kale, so I threw together this salad. It turned out so well! I think I had everyone else thinking that I had made this before… nope! Flew by […]

Epic Smoothie


Tonight at CrossFit, we had a great WOD. It was a really good one for working on my skills in certain lifts and building my strength; it was less of a cardio workout, though. (Also, they wrote the date wrong, this was Wednesday 6/20, not 6/21.) First, for our strength, we did 5 sets of […]

Teriyaki Salmon and Soba Noodle Salad


When I was about eight or ten, I saw a recipe on the Today Show (always been my favorite morning show!) that I decided I MUST MAKE. I liked to bake/cook, but I wasn’t that much of a chef. This recipe, though, Salmon with Soba Noodle Salad, was going to become my go-to. Whenever I […]
