Thanks for coming on over to my blog today!
I hope you are enjoying your day!
I would love to share with you a new book I am diving into one toe at a time!
I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson
It is a beautiful book with wonderful recipes and lots of information if you (like me) are interested in eating better.
I am starting off slow, as Sarah suggests.
I am enjoying shopping for new ingredients, (some I have never heard of before?) and putting them all together into something delicious and nutritious.
I purchase most of my ingredients from Wegmans, because that is my grocery store, and they have a great selection, also my local health food store and local farms.
I am new to eating good foods often.
My goal is to find recipes that I love so I will want to eat them as much as I love to eat cookies.
A great lunch idea...
inspired by Sarah
Marathon Bread (from Wegmans) toasted
with avocado, fresh tomato (from Indian Head Farm) and a poached egg.
Post Script: I have to share with you my awesome find on my next blog post for the best way to hull an avacado!
I am new to avocados.
Many say how easy they are to peel and remove the pit etc...
but I found this awesome tool that did it all lickety-split and I love it!!
Next...here is a recipe that Sarah suggests you try the first week.
I am really having so much fun!

This granola is so tasty and and fun to make.
One ingredient that was optional and new to me was
Brown Rice Syrup.
|Lundberg Family Farms|
Brown rice syrup is very thick like honey.
I baked my granola for 35 minutes but forgot to mix it up while checking on it.
It might have cooked quicker had I done that.
The kitchen smelled devine!
As soon as it was slightly cooled I topped it on some fresh fruit.
I purchased a cute jar (made in Italy) to put my homemade granola in!
|Purchased at Wegmans|
I lifted up both sides of my parchment paper to make a sort of a tube and it slipped right in my jar!
This month is World Watercolor Month! Are you up for a challenge of using watercolors every day for the month of July? I thought I would give it a try since I love to use watercolors as a medium. I love them more for coloring than actual painting, but nevertheless, I thought I would see where this challenge would bring me! I have never used paints from the tube before....so another new challenge for me....
Last night I started warming up with oranges and yellows....
