Tried-n-True Series: Southern style collard greens with oven roasted chicken (8 Nov 13)

I found this recipe for southern style collard greens from Paula Deen….however, I did not have ham in the fridge…so I used turkey bacon instead 🙂

Master tester’s grade: 3 stars out of 5 (he has never liked vegetables).  I personally liked the greens.  I roasted some chicken pieces and pan-fried some corn – both Sissi style 😉

Healthy Living: Running before breakfast (4 Nov 13)

Apparently, not only does morning exercise boost heart rate and burn calories….but it also prevents us from over-indulging throughout the day….

See New York Times article HERE and the follow up article HERE. Personally, running in the cold winter is NOT fun…hmmm.  How do you push yourself out of the house in the cold?
