Under Construction

I wanted to share with 'you all' (sorry, I've been in Texas!) some exciting changes that are ahead for my Butter Girl blog!  I have been working closely with a great friend and photographer, Olivia Westfall. ( Olivia is patiently working with me through the process of making my Butter Girl blog a great place for you to land for nutrition consulting services, cooking classes, workshops, tasty recipes...and as always, my chatty narratives of what is going on in my silly and sometimes complicated life. 
We all have journeys and this one is mine.  I have been so honored to share the love story of me and my Rick on my Marital Status: W blog.  As I keep moving forward on this nutrition journey that Rick so lovingly led me to, I am finding more and more, a sense of 'belonging'.  It has taken me a while to work my way through the monstrous dust storm, but by golly....I do believe that I am finding my direction and finally....a soft, comfy place to land. 
I am very excited to share with others how they can still enjoy the food that was once my existence; only now in a much healthier fashion.  Pleeeeez remember, healthy does not mean deprivation and/or starvation!  I am still in love with 'pretty food'.  Guess where digestion your brain!  Let's give your brain some pretty/healthy stuff to look at on your dinner plate...and let the digestion process begin.  Why?  Because digestion is imperative to good health.  (Sorry...sermon over..amen.)   
If all goes well, we will be able to launch the new and improved Butter Girl in the next couple of weeks.  Keep watching...I think you are going to like it!

  1. Ps. I decided to make your loaded banana bread as my other snack with Jack.

    Which brings me to, what the kale is "aluminum free baking powder" whattt? haha There is aluminum in my baking powder?!

  2. Olivia, I'm so happy to hear that you are baking with I had shared, those are the things your kiddies will remember! And yes, there is aluminum in your baking powder...what the kale is right! You can get aluminum-free baking powder in the healthy food section at Kroger...the price difference really isn't all that different either.

    Perhaps I shall do a blog post about the importance of getting aluminum out of our cooking. Research shows that aluminum accumulates in the bones and brain, which can lead to osteoporosis and Alzheimer's. Aluminum foil falls into this conversation too....sigh. Anyway sweetie, good luck with the banana bread and hugs to Jack; our junior baker!

Pumpkin Doughnut Pleasure

Written for The River Current Publication      I think I have said this before, but I just have to say it again…I love all things pumpkin!   If one doesn’t share my love of pumpkin around this time of year, I suppose it could be a difficult thing.    All that one could do I suppose, would be to sit back and wait for the pumpkin madness to subside!   As we have slipped into the magnificence of a Mid-Western fall season, you will find in my kitchen simmering pots of pumpkin chili, pumpkin breads, pumpkin pies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffees…well, I think you get the pumpkin picture!     For the last couple of weeks I have been craving a good pumpkin doughnut.   I have always been a huge fan of doughnuts, but in my quest for eating healthier, doughnuts are now a ‘once in a blue moon’ kind of treat for me.         I decided to try my luck at baking my doughnuts, rather than the typical fried version…making them a much healthier option.   What can I say…p

11.12.13 Random Anniversary Thoughts

Last week was a shit storm of unpleasantness for me.  For the last week it seems, I have fought back tears and sadness.  Silly things such as a looney ex-husband, rudeness, rejection and the death of a friend's husband; they all seemed to pile up on me like the autumn leaves in my back yard....or cow shit out in a pasture...they just kept piling up!   Perhaps also tucked in the back of my mind were the memories of the beautiful wedding weekend that Rick and I shared two years ago today.  I shared on my blog, Marital Status: W  last year, how I have always been fascinated with the unique sequencing of numbers on a calendar...weird, I know.  Special dates that will never occur again.  Rick and I had teased each other when trying to select such a numerical sequence for our wedding day.  Today the uniqueness of 11/12/13, for some silly reason even brought tears to my eyes.  What a cool date...Rick would have liked it, just as I do.   It is almost unimaginable that it has b
